I a 52 and have dry skin. I had been using witch hazel on my face and now I am using this toner. It does not dry out my skin and is soothing and calming to my skin after shaving or if I have a blemish. I don't enjoy the vinegary scent, but once it is on my skin the smell dissipates quickly and doesn't leave any scent behind.
Wow!! This stuff is truly amazing!! It cleared up my breakouts in a matter of days! Plus, it’s organic and good for your skin! I highly recommend this product! Especially, if you suffer from acne or breakouts! It will clear your skin quickly!
I've used other Hello Cider products in the past, and had been searching for a toner that wouldn't dry out my skin, so I was excited when I saw they had gentle hydrosols! Both the Chamomile and ACV scents seemed a little strong straight from the bottle at first, but the vinegar smell faded quickly, and the chamomile wasn't nearly as strong once I actually used it. I spray my face each evening after washing, and it feels delightfully light and refreshing! My skin doesn't feel stripped, tight, or dry like I've experienced with other toners. This is, by far, my favorite toner I've ever used!
I generally wash my face with cleanser in the morning, but my esthetician suggested I use the stronger, vitamin c serum cleanser at night and just do a wash with water in the morning. I sometimes need a little extra help in the morning, especially when my hormones are in an upswing, and the zits come out to play. This combo of anti-inflammatory german chamomile hydrosol and apple cider vinegar (ACV) are a great toner/post-washcloth treat for my skin.
The ACV smell is a little strong at first, but goes away in a very short amount of time, and I feel like my skin is clean without being stripped. The spray bottle is easy to use and easy to store in my fridge door. The one downside is that it’s best to keep hydrosols in the fridge for keeping them fresh, but it’s a small inconvenience. I’m very happy with this product and I look forward to using this long term!
I have read many things about the benefits of Hydrosols but had never tried them them until finding them here on Hello Cider. I have used other Helllo Cider products in the past and I felt confident in the quality of their products so I decided to give the Hydrosols a try. I ordered this Chamomile Hydrosol as well as the Lavender Hydrosol at the same time and I absolutely love them both. The smell is very calming and gentle and not at all overpowering. I have used it to spray in my home especially before bedtime to help with calmness before sleep. I also love to use it to spray directly onto my face after my workout and shower daily, it feels so nice and refreshing and seems to soothe my overly dry tired winter skin.
