This is my fourth item from the Snowberry range. From New Zealand,this premium anti-aging skin care range offers products that boast scientific advanced ingredients without silicones,glycols,volatile alcohols, parabens or artificial colours. I have very sensitive acne/prone skin and although I would normally avoid ingredient lists that are as long as the Snowberry's ones I have surprisingly never had any reactions/break outs from the products.
The first thing I noticed about this toner is that the formula/texture is different. Its quite thick and is not watery, its brown in colour and has quite a herbal smell. I put a bit in my hands, add a drop of water, massage onto my face then wipe off with wet pads. It could probably be used as a light cleanser as it is able to remove dirt/light makeup. Going from memory I think it cost me £48 for the 100ml size.
The toner contains Marine algae extracts and Co Enzyme Q10 that are meant to "tighten the skin, strengthen skin connective tissue, neutralise free radicals and counter inflammation and Neem and Andiroba oils that result in rapid cell rejuvenation and increase skin softness".
My skin was left feeling refreshed and felt really clean and smooth. Unfortunately after a while I noticed that this was not providing enough moisture for my dry skin. This is my only reason I wouldn't re-buy, a shame as I felt this was making a difference in the clarity of my skin tone.
Just to give you an update, I have bought the Instant deep cleanser 3 times now and it is one of my recommended products. I bought all my Snowberry online from Harvey Nichols who stock it exclusively but am sadden to see that the brand is no longer featured on their website. I really think the brand had a very promising and advanced range of products and was eager to try more so its unfortunate that its availability has been greatly diminished.
