Boots Glycerin and Rosewater Toner is a skincare product that’s stood the test of time, but is it actually any good?
What’s Boots Glycerin and Rosewater Toner like?
I tried this toner years ago, and wasn’t actually that keen on it. I never ended up repurchasing it. I didn’t like how it left a slightly tacky residue on my skin.
Last year, I decided to pick some up with a lockdown online order and give it another try. Just like before, I tried it, hated it, and put it in a drawer and forgot all about it.
I thought I’d give it another go a few weeks ago, instead of buying another bottle of my beloved Boots Cucumber Toner.
This time, however, I decided to actually give it a proper chance before throwing it back in the drawer.
And now? I genuinely like this toner.
It comes in especially handy for the days when my skin’s dried out a little. The thing that I didn’t like about this originally was that it’s a moisturising toner. Like I said, it leaves a little residue on your skin. That’s great, though, for the days when your skin’s very dry. It can feel a little weird to begin with, plus the smell reminds me of cold cream, but you soon get used to it.
It’s very affordable. You get a 200ml bottle for £2.39. It’s amazing value, and it’s going to last you quite a while.
“…give it a chance and you might just be surprised”
It only contains a few ingredients:
Aqua, Glycerin, Isopropyl alcohol, Methylparaben, Sodium citrate, Citric acid, Parfum, Eugenaria caryophyllus leaf oil.
So, it’s a really simple skincare staple.
There really isn’t loads to say about this toner (have you noticed that I’m waffling?) other than it’s one of those understated skincare products that’s been around for a long time. Granted, it might not be your cup of tea, but give it a chance and you might just be surprised.
