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.
I love this toner it is by far the best i have tried so far
nice and refreshing with a lovely scent
removes any remaining traces of makeup and cleanser
lasts for ages too :)
