Breath Of Fresh Air Toner Water

Out of the three toner waters Lush do, Breath Of Fresh Air is arguably the most refreshing and hydrating. I love to use it at work during the summer to instantly cool and refresh my skin (when I’m not wearing make-up of course!).

Breath Of Fresh Air’s main two ingredients are Spring Water and Fresh Sea Water. Lush’s Spring Water comes from underground lakes in Dorset. The water there is recognised internationally for its purity and high levels of sodium, which preserves elasticity of blood vessels. Spring Water is also full of vital minerals that benefit the skin. The Sea Water Lush use comes from the crystal clear waters in Studland Bay on the south coast of England and is also full of sodium and other minerals that the skin craves.

This toner water is chock full of soothing ingredients such as Aloe Vera Gel, which is excellent at calming redness and irritation, whilst softening the skin. Carrageenan Extract is derived from a type of seaweed and anything containing seaweed is great at hydrating and nourishing the skin.

In terms of scent, Breath Of Fresh Air has a fresh scent with floral and earthy notes and something very ‘oceanic’ about it. It contains essential oils from Rosemary and Patchouli along with Rose Absolute and Seaweed Absolute. Each one of these oils and absolutes have great soothing properties, with Rose and Rosemary being balancing and Seaweed Absolute being full of essential nutrients too.

Although Tea Tree Water is a staple in my skincare routine as my toner, during the summer I love to spritz Breath Of Fresh Air if I’m in need of a little pick me up on a hot day. On the side of the bottle it suggests taking it on long haul flights to combat cabin pressure skin, which sounds like a great use though I’ve not tried it myself.

Tea Tree Water Toner Water

Using a toner should be an important step in your daily routine, applying it between cleansing and moisturising. Toners add an extra cleansing step, removing traces of dirt and cleanser left behind, while typically restoring your skin’s PH balance and closing pores left open by cleansing – thus adding a layer of protection by not allowing any impurities to get in.

A triple threat of Tea Tree Water, Grapefruit Water and Juniperberry Water, Tea Tree Water Toner is the perfect toner for someone with oily or blemish prone skin.

Tea Tree has been scientifically proven to be antiseptic, antibacterial, antimicrobial AND antifungal so it’s perfect for clearing breakouts and spots.

Grapefruit is cleansing and enzymic, meaning it helps remove excess oils, and it’s also astringent – which means it helps the skin’s pores contract and close.

Juniperberry tops off the concoction by balancing out the skin’s sebum production and PH balance.

I use my toner twice a day, morning and night. Just lightly spritz some onto a cotton pad and wipe over the face, simple as! I even spray it on my chest and shoulders when I get the occasional spot there! It also makes for a lovely and refreshing cooling spray on a hot summer’s day. There’s a large size, and a smaller size that’s perfect for fitting into a handbag.
