Andalou Naturals Blossom + Leaf Toning Refresher - Review

6:01 am 18 Comments A+ a-


The Brand
Andalou Naturals is a natural, organic, botanical and vegan brand. I have already done a detailed introductory post about the brand, click 'From Botany To Beauty, Andalou Naturals!' for more details.


The Brand Claims
Fruit Stem Cell Science renews skin at the cellular level. Award-winning Malus Domestica (Apple) and Solar Vitis (Grape) Stem Cells provide ‘universal’ cells to energize skin cell function for enhanced immunity, longevity and vitality. Fruit Stem Cell Science accelerates the skin’s own ability to repair and replenish health cells effectively replacing older, weak and damaged cells. These universal cells become activated skin cells and elasticity and resilience are restored.



Clinically proven advanced plant power harnessed and delivered to where you need it most.


The Product Claims
Fruit Stem Cell Complex, superfruit antioxidants, and aloe vera polysaccharides protect, hydrate, and replenish essential nutrients, soothing irritation and balancing skin's delicate pH, as uplifting notes of geranium and orange leaf refresh for a healthy glow.


Components
It’s an organic brand, manufactures all the products naturally from plants, flowers, and fruits ingredients, with no artificial fragrance, taste, color, parabens, or preservatives. Thus, they are harmless and does not cause any side effects.

Key Ingredients:
The key composing ingredients and their purposes are discussed as follows:

Resveratrol Q10: Resveratrol combined with Coenzyme Q10; super antioxidant complex that helps to defy wrinkle formation, inhibit cellular damage, stimulate skin-firming collagen and elastin to decrease fine lines and smooth skin.

Hibiscus Flower Extract: Cleanses and soothes for a refreshed complexion.

Geranium Oil: Rejuvenates and promotes healthy cells by boosting circulation; soothes inflammation, neutralizes bacteria, refreshes.

Petitgrain Oil: Skin calming and toning, gentle antiseptic.

Ingredients:
Aloe Barbadensis Juice, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Lauric Acid, Fruit Stem Cells (Malus Domestsica, Solar Vitis) and BioActive 8 Berry Complex, Resveratrol, Ubiquinone (CoQ10), Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Aspalathus Linearis (Rooibos), Hibiscus Sabdariffa and Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Extracts, Phenethyl Alcohol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Citrus Aurantium (Petitgrain) and Geranium Maculatum Oils.

Product & Packaging
The toner is of course in a fluid form, comes in a cylindrical, tinted, plastic, pump spray bottle which is green in color that indicates it’s a purely vegan product.



Redolent
As this product is fabricated from plant’s leaves and stems, it does not contain any artificial odor or synthetic ingredients, it smells like an orange leaf which is very mild and not bothers me at all. Also, this fragrance is not exasperating for sensitive eyes too.

Directions
Here is how you can utilize this toner at its optimum;

If you are using a pump spray bottle:
- Shake well.
- After cleansing, close eyes and gently mist face and neck to balance pH and prepare skin for maximum moisturizing.
- For instant refreshment day and night, mist lightly with or without make-up.


If you are using the bottle with a cap:

- After cleansing, saturate cotton pad and gently sweep over face and neck to balance pH and best prepare skin for moisturizing.

Usage
Mist the toner on your face and neck and let it dry. Use twice a day for better results. Do not expect quick results. Use at least 15 days to notice its working. But the effective results can be noticeable if you use it for continuous 6 weeks.


Embrocation
It can be applied in both ways as stated in directions. I usually used to spray it after washing my face in the morning and evening. After that, I apply a small amount of moisturizer over it, if needed.

Overall Exposure
At first few applications, it tingles on my skin near eyes and cheek bones for just a few seconds. But this is actually because its working and repairing my skin. It also gives me a sticky feel for just a moment, but in fact it is a non sticky fluid.

It is stated on the bottle that it is for dry and sensitive skin, but it works equally for the oily and combination skin too. I have combo skin so this toner soothes the dry patches of my face, and my T-zone does not becomes oily while enduring it. It hydrates, moisturizes, and smooths my skin like seriously. It makes my skin enough supple, that I hardly need to use any moisturizer after spraying it all over my face and neck. But I suggest you to use your daily moisturizer (according to your skin type) along with it. 

It is basically an age defying product, used for rejuvenating the skin. It does not have to do anything with the complexion. It does not meant to lighten your skin tone, but the regenerating process repairs your skin by removing the old dead skin and renewing the weakens cells, so we get the healthier, soft, and fresh skin tone which gives a radiant glow on our faces.

It is a versatile refresher; it nourishes the skin, helps you to make your makeup long lasting, makes your face sheer and glowing, maintains the pH balance of skin, it is hypo-allergenic, protects your skin from smut and bacteria, and moreover a much needed spray in hot summers for instantaneous freshness.

Traits
- For all skin types.
- Super moisturizing.
- Anti irritant, does not cause breakouts, acne, or scars.
- Can be used as a primer before wearing makeup.
- Can be used as a fixer after wearing makeup.
- Refresh your face immediately.
- Non sticky.
- Non drying or flaky.
- Hydrates the skin instantly.

Setbacks
- Takes time to improve your skin condition, as skin repairing is a complex process, so visible outcomes must be closely observed.

Conviction
It is the best skin smoother I have ever use, which soothes my face effectively. But besides that one feature, you hardly notice any refinement with your skin or tone appearance. As soon as you discontinue using this toner, your skin again starts to dry and dull.

Would I Repurchase
I’d definitely try this toner again, just because it moisten my skin in no time and I avoid the strong scented moisturizers.

How Much
$12.95 or 1,175 PKR for 178 ml/ 6 fl oz

Where
Available at Naheed Super Market, Tee Emm Mart, Just4Girls and Daraz.
