Review: Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Toner

I've been on the look-out for a new toner ever since trying Skinetica a couple of months ago; I liked its addition into my skincare routine in terms of making sure to remove all makeup and cleanser from my skin, but wasn't won over by Skinetica's formula. I've been hearing for a while now about the virtues of an exfoliating toner, so after seeing Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Toner mentioned on Amiiee's blog, I decided to give it a whirl! I've been using it of an evening for around a month now.
Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Toner
I really like the packaging, which is bright and clean with a lovely illustration, fitting in with the rest of the Botanics range. The information given claims, "This revitalising toner helps visibly tighten pores and instantly brighten skin. Skin is left feeling fresher and prepared for moisturising. Hibiscus is nature's brightness booster and a wonderful hue of pink. Natural AHAs from the flower act as mild exfoliators to help leave skin smoother and brighter. Directions: Moisten cotton wool pad and sweep over face and neck after cleansing." The aperture of the bottle is small, meaning it's easy to dispense the product onto a cotton pad without wastage. The toner feels refreshing on the skin and as far as I can see, does a good job at removing any last traces of make-up; I can usually see some grime on my cotton pad once I'm done, which is strangely satisfying. My face isn't left feeling dry or tight, just clean and smooth. I usually wait around ten minutes before applying my moisturiser, to give the AHAs time to do their stuff. I've been using a few new products lately in an effort to clear my skin up and deal with my over-sized pores, so it's difficult to 100% attribute an improvement to any one product, but I really do feel that this toner has been doing its bit to help keep blemishes under control. I also think that the pores around my nose are looking smaller after a few weeks of use, though I do think those effects are in conjunction with Nip + Fab's Glycolic Scrub Fix - a winning combination if ever there was one!
Botanics All Bright Toner Review
[Ingredients: Aqua, Alcohol Denat, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract, Sodium Benzoate, Quillaja Saponaria Bark Extract, Sodium Citrate, Benzoic Acid, Dehydroacetic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin.]
In all, you could definitely do worse for an exfoliating toner, and I feel like this product has made a positive contribution to brightening my skin and tightening pores. It's affordable and easy to use, and hasn't irritated my skin. Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Toner is available from Boots instore and online, priced at £3.99 for 250ml of product, though there are often offers on the Botanics range, so you should easily be able to pick it up a little cheaper than that - mine was £2.49. Have you tried any products from the Botanics All Bright range? What's your favourite toner? Have you tried an exfoliating toner?

  2. I know exactly what you mean about seeing the grime on the cotton pad and feeling satisfied. I alternate between Lush's Tea Tree Toner and Boots Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz, and seeing the muck just wipe off your face is fab! I'd love to try this toner though, because it would hopefully help with the pores on my nose x

  8. Haha I totally get what you mean about the grime on the cotton pads! I wipe away until the pads come back as clean as possible! I always see this range in Boots but I have never taken the plunge to give it a try. I swear by the Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel toner but it is always nice to switch things up :D
