Facial Toners Are Very Much Needed.

 

 A toner is a water-based liquid with a consistency like vinegar that contains active ingredients to help address specific issues. “Not only does it remove debris like oil and traces of makeup, but it soothes, repairs, and smooths the skin’s surface—diminishing blemishes and minimizing signs of redness and inflammation”. Since the product itself is meant to absorb and control all of the dirt and oil clogged deeply into our pores, toner is only necessary for those with greasy or acne-prone skin, right? Wrong. Today’s toners are high quality and made with many of the same ingredients you might find in your other skin-care products. Some of the best toners for acne-prone skin contain exfoliating ingredients like amino fruit acids or glycolic acid, while toners made for sensitive skin types are made with soothing thermal spring water.

After cleansing your skin, pour two to three drops onto a cotton pad—this works best because it doesn’t absorb too much of the liquid and easily transfers product to your face. Make sure you get enough product on the cotton pad so that it feels damp but not too wet so that you’re wasting the liquid.  Smooth a small amount across your face, neck, and décolletage, adding enough pressure to reach deep into your pores but not too much force so as to pull at the skin.

While it’s true that overuse of toners can cause your pores to overproduce oil—a natural defense mechanism when your glands feel too stripped of moisture—it’s safe to apply both morning and night, especially if you’re oily. Use it directly after you cleanse your face, before any serums and treatment products, as a second defense against that dirt and grease. If your skin is on the drier side, stick to using toner just at night. By doing so, you’ll be removing any pore-clogging impurities that will further saturate your skin during your eight hours of snooze time and instead help your skin in its nightly renewal process.

The bottom line: The next time you’re wondering whether or not you really need to add another step to your skin-care routine, remember not to tune out toner. It eliminates dirt, grease, and grime to help clear your complexion and make the rest of your products work better.

Volume Accelerator Mascara IS A EXCELLENT FORMULA.

I give this product a thumbs up, no clumping, stays moist for a longer time to uplift your eyelash’s. And will not dry in ten seconds. The colors are true to tone and not very evasive.

The product is water proof and does not make the lash’s stick together when you reapply.

This was a winner for me during my last photo-shoot, especially with the warm humid climate in Orlando.

No flaking at all. Or smearing on the lower eyelid.

I bought the product at ULTA for as little as $12.00. What a bargain and I highly recommend this product.

Well Done Rimmel

The model in this blog post, all hair/hair-color/makeup and photography was done by Joseph Kellner 2017.

It is very hard to blend FOUR SHIMMERS TOGETHER.

I use a lot of makeup for my photo-shoots and I will always pick out a product to use and to write about. But this Photo-Shoot was almost ruined by a eye-shadow made by L’Oreal.  Some products people will buy and use. Why would any one use this product on there eyes I have not the slightest thought in my mind.

 

The product FLAKES.

It is VERY DUSTY.

You really have to PACK it on over, and over, and over.

The product does not HOLD WELL to a brush.

One wrong move with your hand and your makeup FACE IS FINISHED.

OVER PRICED I paid $8.99 for it at Target.

This product is good as a body SHIMMER.

Eye colors are not TRUE TO TONE.

Just to SHIMMERY. They should have added a least two MATTE colors to it.

It is very hard to blend FOUR SHIMMERS TOGETHER.

I wont throw it away I always try to find a way to manipulate my products to do at least two jobs for me.  But I would not use it one the eye’s.
