During the winter, my skin kind of freaks out a little bit. I get dry patches and sometimes the occasional blemish. Because of this, I try to stick to a very basic and very regular skin care routine. The Gnarly Whale reached out to me about their new green tea toners. When I read the product description for this toner from The Gnarly Whale, it stated that it could provided a clearer, brighter complexion but was still good for sensitive skin. The Peppermint Grean Tea Toner sounded like it was exactly what my skin needed.

Claims: “The alcohol free formula will soothe and boost the appearance of skin by relieving redness, de-clogging pores, maintaining elasticity and diminishing the appearance of under eye circles. Containing powerful antioxidants, a green tea based toner can provide a clearer, brighter complexion, ideal for oily, acne prone skin. This low impact beauty find is then enhanced by grapefruit extract’s anti-aging benefits while orange peel powder balances pH levels. Add the calming, anti-inflammatory properties of chamomile and this toner is perfect for those with sensitive skin.“
Ingredients: Water, green tea leaf powder, orange peel powder, chamomile flowers, and grapefruit seed extract. Our scented Green Tea Toners include water, green tea leaf powder, orange peel powder, chamomile flowers, grapefruit seed extract and essential oils
Pros: Reduced blemishes. Tightened pores. Very gentle formula. Invigorating and refreshing scent. Cruelty free brand. Vegan formula.
The Verdict: I have to say that I really liked the Peppermint Grean Tea Toner a lot. At first I was worried that it would be too harsh for my skin. I have combination skin, which can make finding the right skin care products tricky. But this toner was very effective without being too harsh. I definitely noticed a difference in my skin once I started using this toner. It helped to clear up the blemishes I get during the changing of the seasons. My pores also seemed smaller and my skin just seemed calmer. I think that the blend of ingredients in this toner is great. It worked well with my combination skin.
The smell is amazing! It’s so refreshing and the peppermint really wakes you up. I loved using this toner in my skincare routine but also spraying it on my face to refresh my skin after working out. I can see it having a permanent place in my after workout skincare routine.
Overall, I loved this toner and would definitely suggest it to others.
