Review of Baxter of California's Herbal Mint Toner
I used to work with a guy named Zak, who every day between 3:00 and 4:00 would wash his face with that harsh, industrial pink soap from the men's room dispenser, and then dry off with those dark, supermarket-bag-brown paper towels. Had I known about Baxter of California's Herbal Mint Toner then, I would have recommended it to him. Baxter's toner is a great way to remove a layer of oil without removing half your skin. And, it's quick and easy. No splashing water on your face and the top half of your shirt. No going to the opposite extreme and ending up with dry skin. Just pour a little into a cotton ball or pad, wipe across your face, and you're done. No need to even dry off.
There is one gotcha with all toners, not just Baxter's, and that applies to people who grow an especially thick beard. Rubbing a cotton ball in any direction other than with the grain can result in an annoying thin layer of white shredded wisps. I've actually gotten pretty good at applying toner over a five o'clock shadow, but be warned - if you've got a heavy beard, the first few times may lead to some unintended results. That said, I much prefer a quick application of toner than the wash, rinse, dry, moisturize routine in the late afternoon.
Baxter of California's Herbal Mint Toner is available from their website at $16 for a bottle. It's alcohol free, smells great, and a single bottle will last forever. If you get oily skin in the afternoon, or just want to feel refreshed at any time during the day, give Baxter's Herbal Mint Toner a try.
