Suzie's Ginseng Astringent is a mild, very gentle astringent. A alcohol-free, glycolic toner for normal to dry AND sensitive types of skin. It leaves your face clean and smooth with no residual. This has been a no burn astringent for me and has almost no fragrance. I like it. :)
First time buying this and it exceeded my Expectations! Preps my skin for moisturizer perfect. This will be my "Go-To" toner! Leaves my skin feeling amazing-soft and slightly dewy--love it more than expected. Will buy over and over again.
First off, this was a first purchase of Suzie's products for me. I had read such good reviews about their products that I checked out everything I could find on them. I have fairly severe rosacea and very, VERY sensitive skin, and had been trying out some products from Amazon that I thought might help. Unfortunately, I was spending $20 to $40 a pop for things that weren't working. Then, Suzie happened. This astringent (toner) is gentle, and does what it says it will do. The ONLY con I can report about it is that it has a fragrance I dont much care for. It is not unpleasant, I just personally don't really care for it. Ultimately, when they sent me this toner, they also sent along a sample size of their Calendula Astringent, which is from their alpha hydroxy line, and which I like much better. If you want a mild, very gentle astringent that won't dry out your face, this is the one for you. It did not irritate my skin or my rosacea condition.
It picks up any extra makeup or dirt or whatever that didnt come off when I washed my face. It has a pleasant smell and my skin is smoother using it.
I have to admit I was skeptical about purchasing this astringent, but I have not been disappointed and love the results to my face. No more bumps and tighter pores and I have noticed the couple of dark spots I have are lightening. I don't use the astringent every night, but alternate with a moisturizer because the astringent works so well I don't want to over do. it. I would recommend this astringent to anyone who wants better skin on their face.
