You guys know I LOVE water.

… Okay, maybe just a lil’ straight up obsessed.

To the point where I consider it magical – the benefits are just e n d l e s s.

So imagine how ecstatic I was when I was living in France, where it was perfectly okay to drink straight from the tap ’cause the water actually tasted clean & didn’t need to be filtered. 

Living the dream, right? HA.

But, the dream didn’t stop there. Turns out, I ended up finding more uses for water … & more uses for flowers!

& you definitely can’t go wrong with flowers + water. 

As you guys know, I upped my skincare routine while in Europe … which means that I actually followed through w/ a routine & even used toner. 

& by toner ( aka toning lotions ), I’m talking floral waters that smell just as heavenly as they feel.

Toner is basically an easy, quickie way to replenish your skin after the harsh makeup removal & cleansing process.

Like, if your face were a flower, toners are the fertilizers & waters – they 100% hydrate your skin & feed it w/ lots of antioxidants & soothing agents.

They also help to balance out your skin’s pH.

If like me, you’re not into chemistry at all & you have no idea what this means … so here’s a lil’ refresher of your high school chem class w/ a twist : on a scale of 1-14, anything from 1-7 is considered acidic ( irritated, oily, acne-prone skin ) & anything from 7-14 is basic/alkaline ( dry & wrinkly skin ).

So like everything else in life, you want to keep your pH level balanced.

My fave part about toner is that it leaves a refreshing, dewy feel on my face after it’s applied. Plus, the fact that it REALLY gets in there & cleans up those last specks of makeup makes my life SO much easier. 

I use toner twice a day w/ cotton pads : once at night to refresh & fully cleanse my skin, & once again in the morning to balance my skin’s pH & remove any excess oils.

Toner’s a godsend – so of course I brushed up on my French a lil’ bit, went shopping, saw those gorgeous blue bottles, & just knew they’d be the perfect toner.

A bit of a 6th sense? Maybe … πŸ˜‰

I previously used Fresh’s Rose Floral Toner ( which I couldn’t bring w/ me, sadly ) so I was excited to see if these floral waters from Christian Lenart were a cheaper alternative. I picked up a bottle of Eau aromatisΓ©e de Roses ( rose aromatic water ) & made sure that it was alcohol-free ( VERY important! ) so that it would be gentle on my skin. The label said that it was for toning & refreshing all skin types which made things easy & stupid simple. 

Is it just me or are skin types confusing? I’m literally still trying to figure out my skin type, ha! I might have normal skin now but next season it could be something totally different. I guess we’ll never know for sure, huh?

Later on right before I left France, I grabbed a couple more bottles & added a bottle of Eau florale de Bleuets ( cornflower water ) to the mix. It’s also alcohol-free & for all skin types, but I think I might love it more ( sorry, rose! ) because it soothes & decongests my eyelids. Cornflowers are typically used for eye relief so it’s super relieving after a day of full-face makeup, y’know?

They both smell wonderful, are paraben-free & phenoxyethanol-free, & are bottled in chic blue glass which protects the contents from UV rays.

SO. MUCH. YES.

So, do you babes use toner? How about floral ones? Tell, tell – now that I’ve left France I’ll need to find an alternative … πŸ˜‰
