Wardah Lightening Face Toner Review

Wardah Lightening Face Toner

Hello everyone^^! It’s been a while since I’ve been lazy enough to update my blog. Here is another short review from me, this time I’m gonna review Wardah Lightening Face Toner.
I have browsed Wardah official website to get information about this product but it seems that the direction of usage on the official web is bit different than what’s written on the toner bottle.

U can visit the official site here :

These are the snap snap from my web cam

Plastic blue bottle with white cap

                I bought it from Hypermart for about Rp. 15.000 (around $ 2). This is quite affordable for 150 ml bottle. It claims to be alcohol-free but if u look at the ingredients list there is benzyl alcohol. I did not find any paraben/phenoxyethanol preservatives on the ingredient list, wonder if it is really free from them. I bought this because it’s cheap and said to be alcohol-free. This toner bit too scented, I’m sure there’s a lot of fragrance inside it.

Texture : White transparent liquid
                I have tried using it as cleansing toner after cleanser and the other time I used it after facial wash. I experienced redness every after using this toner so I stopped after 4 usage. I wont suggest it for those with sensitive skin like mine. I did not experience redness anymore after I stopped using this toner. Don't know what ingredients inside that irritate my skin, maybe the fragrance, I don't know...

Pros :
- moisturizing
- claimed to be alcohol-free
- contains whitening properties and nutrients such as vit B3 and vit E
- contains natural herbal ingredients such as seaweed and licorice
- affordable price for 150 ml n available locally here

Cons :
- Fragranced
- Irritant for my skin (causing redness)

Who may like it :
- Wants a lightening toner
- Don’t mind the fragrance

Who may not like it :
- Sensitive skin, acne prone and oily skin
- Don’t like fragrance in skincare

Repurchase ? No, sorry Wardah, I did not mean to hurt the image of ur product but this one did not work on me. Too bad coz I like ur loose powder and Wardah facial wash much.

Do u have any experience with Wardah Brand? I’d like to know ur story^^
