For those with a combination and an oily skin, an article by SYIDA LIZTA AMIRUL IHSAN on Aesop’s Bitter Orange Astringent Toner brings good news to them. Syida writes about her own experience with the Melbourne-based product that had reduced pores within three weeks of usage.
This toner has a bitter concoction of witch hazel, green tea, sage and other botanical extracts, along with the steamed extract of steamed bitter orange. The usage, as reported gives a taut sensation for sometime but then it delivers as said by Syida:
Matte finish with a cooling sensation.
Facts point out that Syida had an active sebum producing skin but this toner has reduced the production of oil, resulting in the blending of foundation much uniform. Concisely, research has proven that bitter orange extracts have improved the skin tone by hydrating, soothing and oxygenating the skin. Therefore, this product can be recommended for those having an oily and combination skin to be followed up by a cleanser.
