Balancing Toning Water with Melissa, Cucumber & Rose Geranium
Waters that are steam-distilled from fruit and flowers are clean, pure, and a perfect third step to blend with serums after cleansing and exfoliating. Our toning waters are a light concentration of pure floral and fruit waters that work beautifully with serums or on their own. They are blended to tone, freshen, and brighten.
When skin is stressed or imbalanced and a remedy is quickly needed, our Balancing Toning Water is great for combination and active skin. A wonderfully uplifting blend of melissa leaf to add anti-inflammatory properties, cucumber to cool and calm, and rose-geranium to balance helps to promote healthy skin, remove dead skin cells, and soothe stressed or hot skin. The waters are lightly stimulating and revitalizing. It feels fresh and spring-like on the skin.
Each of our toning waters can be used for a variety of skin conditions, and they have similar benefits as essential oils, but are much less concentrated. They are full of all the whole plant materials and beneficial components each flower or fruit has to offer and can be used confidently in a variety of ways where an essential oil may be too strong. The steaming process is done in small, precise batches to ensure that the essence of the plant is in every drop. Each aroma can vary - most are subtle and mild, and others can be bright and lively just like the flower or fruit they came from.
After cleansing and exfoliating, mist one or two pumps on hands and press on to face. Before applying your serum, add a mist or two on your hands, add a few drops of your serum, blend and press on to your face.
If your face is properly cleansed each night, in the morning there is usually no need to re-cleanse, just moisten face, blend toning water with serum, and press on to face.

Q. Can I use my toning water on a cotton ball to remove makeup?
A. Yes and no. Yes, it will remove most makeup and leave skin feeling fresh and clean, but no, it will not provide a deep cleaning to remove all traces of makeup and dirt from the day. In a pinch, it feels good to cleanse this way, but we recommend using your cleansing oil for the best kind of clean.
Q. Can I use a toning water to set my makeup?
A. Yes, it provides a great, natural way to set any kind of mineral makeup or powder. Feel free to mist throughout the day, lightly, without disturbing your application.
