Botanics All Bright Cleansing Toner

Last year I started to see Botanics products appearing on blogs more and more, and naturally this only made me curious. I picked up the Cleansing Toner, which forms part of their All Bright range. It claims to brighten up the skin and contains an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid), which apparently is an excellent exfoliator.  

I've been using the Cleansing Toner twice a week after washing my face, and I love it. It smooths the skin without being rough like a manual exfoliator and my complexion definitely looks brighter after use. The fine lines on my forehead are fainter, and the lines from my nose to my mouth have pretty much vanished; since this is the only new product I've introduced into my regime I can only conclude that it's the Cleansing Toner working its magic.

I wasn't sure how my sensitive skin would fare but I've experienced no irritation so far. AHAs can increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun, so it's important to use a moisturiser with SPF afterwards, or to apply it at night. While this product may say 'toner' on the label I've been using it in place of a manual exfoliator and I definitely prefer it, my skin is so much happier.

Botanics Cleansing Toner costs  £3.99 for 250ml. I managed to pick it up for the bargain price of £1.99 — the Botanics range is often on offer in Boots!

Have you ever tried anything from the Botanics range? What did you think? Let me know in the comments.
