Description

Lush Breath of Fresh Air Toner is fantastic for dry and tired skin. It softens and hydrates the face combining the power of aloe, seaweed and fresh sea water. It almost brings all nutrients of the sea directly to your skin. Smells divinely and brings back the moisture, owing to the herbal powers of Irish moss seaweed.

Directions

Spritz directly on the face after cleansing and use a cotton pad to remove any excess cleanser. To tighten pores, let the toner air dry. Follow with the moisturizer most appropriate for your skin's needs. Facial toners also help combat the drying effects of airplane travel and air-conditioned offices. Give yourself a spritz or two on your next flight or at work, you'll know what we mean.

Ingredients

Spring Water (Aqua), Fresh Sea Water (Aqua), Aloe Vera Gel (Aloe barbadensis), Perfume, Carrageenan Extract (Chondrus crispus), Rose Absolute (Rosa centifolia), Patchouli Oil (Pogostemon cablin), Rosemary Oil (Rosmarinus officinalis), Seaweed Absolute (Fucus vesiculosus), *Limonene, *Linalool, Methylparaben.

Now in my view the date is probably not so important as methylparaben is a preservative and anti fungal agent. There is apparently no evidence to say they are harmful to humans in beauty products. Apparently many fruits especially blueberries produce these naturally so it doesn't seem to be too offensive. Rose absoluter has been used by women for face treatments for over 2000 years because it's well known for softening and cooling the skin while the aloe vera gel is perfect for any soreness on your face. The ingredients are simple and the product works effectively in my humble opinion.

Now this stuff looks clear like water and you spray it onto cotton wool to remove excess cleanser or to refresh skin. It smells very subtly and pleasantly of exactly what it is called ‘Fresh Air’. I really can’t believe how perfectly the name describes the smell. It also smells slightly of tea tree or something slightly medicinal like a new plaster sort of smell but only slightly. I can’t smell patchouli or rose in it at all.. It is not a strong smell at all which I think is good as you don't really want it smelling strongly in a toner. I have only used this on cotton wool as I only have a sample in a small black pot but if I had the spray I would be very tempted to spray it straight onto my face (eyes and mouth firmly closed) . I do spray my Evian water onto my face when travelling and find it really gives me a lift and helps with dehydration on the plane. I think this would be excellent for this too.

When I buy it I go for the small bottle as it fits nicely in my bag and is not too heavy.I have found that in my local Lush shop they have such helpful assistants who are great at helping me find the best product for my skin and have had a number of samples to take home to try, this being one and it is one I will be going back to buy as it works in a lovely gentle way.


With this toner the lovely blend of sea water does the job of softening and hydrating the skin and then the carrageen seaweed and aloe gel help to lock in this moisture so your skin is protected from dehydration. The lovely people at Lush also told me it is really good at taking the heat out of sunburned skin at the same time it puts back some moisture into your poor burned skin.

Strongest points
The main beneficial ingredients are sea water and aloe vera gel as well as rose absolute and sea weed absolute all of which tone your skin gently. I was recommended this as I am of a certain mature age and this is particularly good on dry, older or sensitive skin.
Weakest points
The packaging is not beautiful but is practical
Summary
Because these are so gentle they are more than a toner. You can use them to spritz your face when feeling tired or hot. I took my ‘Eau Roma’ on the plane on my last trip and spritzed my face when I woke up after a few hours of travel and I did find it made my skin feel less drawn and dehydrated.
