A while back I was dealing with dry patches and texture on my cheeks and forehead. I would use a face scrub twice a week and I would moisturize my skin but nothing helped smoothen it out.Even hydrating foundations would tend to cling to my dry patches. I was looking for a solution to deal with my large pores and my aid with my dry skin. After alot of research I was introduced to the concept of hydrating tonic.
I stopped using a toner as it was drying out my skin more and wanted to replace it with something which would be more nourishing. I came across THE THERAPY HYDRATING TONIC TREATMENT on the Nykaa website by the brand The Face Shop.
About the product: It is a toner + treatment + emulsion all in one. This toner produces an excellent moisturising effect to hydrate and smooth dry skin. The Le Marche anti aging formula line is formulated with nourishing Oats(anti-inflammatory & deep moisturization), Lavender Flower( anti-inflammatory & soothing effect), Wild Rose( soothing effect & treats wrinkles) and Sweet Basil( powerful antioxidant & soothing effect) blended by hand with great care over a period of 6 weeks.
How to use: It is almost gel like but slightly more fluid. It soaks into the skin instantly. It does feel slightly tacky at first but once your skin completely absorbs it, it leaves the skin feeling hydrated ad supple. You can put it in on cotton and apply it all over your skin or you can pump out the product onto the palms of your hands and pat it into your skin. I repeat this process 6 times in my morning and night skincare regime. I use it both ways whichever is convenient at that point of time.
It reduced the texture on my skin by half. The redness around my cheeks reduced as well. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated and moisturized. Over time my dry patches disappeared and foundation would look flawless. It penetrates well into the skin and instatly saturates and refines the skin tone for a smoother skin texture.
It is a pricy product but one bottle takes me 2-3 months to completely use up. I will admit I practically drench my face with the product. If you use just the right amount it will take you a longer time to finish the product. It comes in a frosted glass bottle which feels luxurious. But it is not travel friendly because of the weight of the bottle and the fact that it is made of glass.
