Some say that tonic is a must-have step in a skincare routine some omit it and go straight to lotion. Today I have decided to write about Moisturizing Tonic Lotion from Deborah Milano.

Something about the product

According to the brand, this Moisturizing Tonic Lotion refreshes, and soothes skin, and restores its pH. It contains Aloe Vera for a protective and soothing action, Argan oil for smoothing and anti-free radicals action, White Peony for an antioxidant and astringent action. It has natural mint and lavender scent. It is free from parabens, PEG, alcohol, mineral oils, colourants, and silicones.

Unfortunately, the product contains Ethylhexylglycerin which is classified as an irritant.

My personal opinion and how the product worked for me

Personally, I do not use tonic lotions every day. I have one favourite tonic but it is definitely not the one from Deborah Milano. I do not really see any difference after applying the product. As a matter of fact, my skin feels sticky and far from being fresh and ready for the next step of my skincare routine. I feel like I have to wash my face again before applying any cream. On top of that, every time I am using this product my skin burns a little bit which is probably caused by Ethylhexylglycerin which can cause skin irritations. I am also not a fun of a packaging. The pump is unpractical and unprecise. I have the impression like I always use too much product. In general, there is really nothing I like about this Tonic. I gave it a fair chance. I have tried it in the morning, evening, different days. I am sad to say that this product is definitely not for me and I will not repurchase it again.
