I spotted this L'Oréal Fine Flowers cleansing and toning duo in the UK
last year and the only reason
I didn't buy them then, was the size and weight, as they're both 400mls
I then spotted them again in Duty Free at OR Tambo Airport (JHB) in November last
year on our way to Mauritius and having no weight issues with my luggage,
I bought them both.
I bought them both.
We don't have this range in South Africa and considering the price point
I don't know why not, as it's so affordable, in fact in duty free they were
both dirt cheap (or should I say clean cheap)
They retailed for R65 each, yes you read correctly...
I don't think I have ever reviewed such an inexpensive Cleanser and Toner
before and they're both generous 400mls in size.
At first I thought they were priced wrongly, but the price in the UK
is around £3.99 - R5.99 depending if they're on a special promo or not
so that equates to the correct pricing considering it was duty free.
Now we are not talking any high end cleanser and toner here and
I'm one to advocate that if your budget is under strain, then rather down
budget on your cleanser and toner and invest in your skin serums and creams.
So considering the price how good or bad were they...
I was impressed with both, as they adequately did they're job,
especially considering their price point as,
they're both as "cheap as chips".
Formulated with soothing and comforting extracts of Rose and nourishing
extracts of Jasmine this combination works well.
The creamy textured make-up removing milk leaves the skin feeling soft,
comfortable and fresh.
Whilst the toner completes the cleansing routine it also leaves the skin
feeling refreshed and free from any traces of impurities.
These two products are quite strongly fragranced with Rose & Jasmine
and may not suit those that don't tolerate floral scents.
(I personally enjoyed the fragrance)
Despite this range being targeted at a Dry/Sensitive skin it surprisingly
contains Alcohol in the toner and combined with the strong fragrance
I'm personally not too sure about how well tolerated this duo would be
if you have a sensitive to very sensitive skin.
I do love the packaging of the cleanser as it comes in an easy
to operate pump dispenser.
However the flip toner lid has my "pet peeve" a large hole, so if you're not
careful the toner pours out and floods your cotton pad.
There are other products available in this range i.e Cleansing Wipes,
Cleansing Wash and Cleansing Cream.
This cleanser and toner are pretty basic and simple, but for the
price I quite enjoyed using both of these products.
It's a pity about the Alcohol content and for this reason I wouldn't personally
buy again, however if this isn't an issue for you and budget IS,
then you can't go wrong.
