At the tail end of 2015, I was lucky enough to be put in contact with Charlie Locks, a Winchester based skincare brand and took a look around their facility in Owslebury. Their philosophy and approach to skincare was inspiring and really made me think about stepping up my skincare game. Whilst at the facility, I purchased their Gentle Tonic Spritz and I love it.
Charlie Locks offer two types of Tonic Spritz depending on what you and your skin need, I chose the Spritz with Neroli and Orange Blossom Water. I must admit that I had never really understood the purpose or importance of using a toner until speaking to Julie ( Co-Founder) who explained that it returns your skin to the natural PH balance after cleansing.
The Neroli and Orange Blossom smell amazing and is a lovely addition to my otherwise scent free skincare collection. Neroli helps to uplift and rejuvenate the skin along with the orange blossom which refreshes and tones the skin.
The toner, unlike others that I have used, is in a spray bottle. I usually spray straight onto my face and décolletage until they are visibly soaked. I then wipe the skin with a damp cotton pad to remove any excess before patting the skin dry with a clean towel.
Charlie Locks recommend diluting this toner with filtered water to make a 50/50 solution but I have yet to try this out.
This toner is a lot kinder to my skin than some of the other more harsher toners that I have tried in the past. My skin has been a lot clearer and more balanced since I started using this product and I can’t wait to see how the product continues to benefit my skin.
Haven’t heard of Charlie Locks – head over to http://www.charlielocks.com to purchase and for lots of hints and tips which I wish I had known a lot sooner!
