Product Review: Olay Refreshing Toner

Reviewer: Suziesaurus

Brand: Olay
Name: : Refreshing Toner
Size: 212 ml / 7.2 fl oz
Price: approx. $6 CAD

From their website: “Refreshing Toner is a low-alcohol,ndermatologist-tested formula containing aloe and witch hazel that cleans and refreshes without overdrying. Cleans by removing dirt, oil and makeup without stripping skin's essential moisture. Refreshes, leaving skin feeling cool and wonderfully fresh. Tones gently with a mild formula with added aloe and witch hazel.”

To Purr About:
- inexpensive
- removes dirt
- cooling sensation is very refreshing

Claws Out:
- bottle opening is large with makes spillage probable
- stings a bit
- super strong alcohol smell

Final Comments:
I`ve had pretty good experience with Olay products, so I was enthusiastic to try their toner and facial wash.

I was surprised when I started using this product that it had such a strong alcohol scent as they mention it is a “low-alcohol” product. I’m skeptical how low in alcohol content it is as alcohol is listed as the second ingredient on the package. It also stung a lot when I got some in my eye.

Other than that it seems like a good and inexpensive toner. Nothing fancy, but toners usually aren’t. It seems to strip skin of any extra dirt and leaves the skin feeling nice and refreshed which is good.

Rating (out of 5):
