Himalaya Herbals Gentle Refreshing face toner

Every one knows importance of toner in skin care regime. Toner helps in reducing oil secretion and thus making face looks fresher.When you wipe face with cotton pad dipped with toner, it will removes all residues left after cleansing. Also it will help to tighten pores and balance pH of skin.
Most of the toner I used till now had alcohol content in it. Himalaya face toner has been a welcoming change from it.

Packaging is travel friendly. It consists of bottle with cap. Under the cap there is also a screw cap lid, which consists of a aperture/hole in it. While travelling contents won’t spill out.

Price : INR.70/- for 100 ml.

As you can see it is a clear liquid .
Directions for use:  After using cleansing mil , pour few drops gentle refreshing toner on a cotton pad and wipe thoroughly over your face and neck.
Ingredients :
Key ingredients: 
Each ml. contains Jati 35 mg, Lajjalu 35 mg, Marubaka 20 mg, Nimbuka 10 mg
Jati is Jasmine, Lajjalu is mimosa pudika, which is commonly known as  touch-me-not or sensitive plant, Marubaka is marjoram and Nimbuka is lime

What company claims :

Refreshes and tones the skin. Reduces oil secretion and keeps the skin oil-free.
Gentle Refreshing Toner purifies and refreshes your skin. This alcohol-free toner removes the impurities and makes pores appear small. Lemon and Jasmine cleanse and refresh your skin, while Sensitive plant controls excess oil secretion. Sweet marjoram nourishes the skin to keep it radiant and healthy.

It is not exactly 100 % herbal, all herbal products will contain atleast preservatives and fragrance.
Anyway in bottle it  is written as Ayurvedic proprietary medicine , hypoallergenic, no harmful chemicals, no animal testing suitable for all skin types

My Experience:
It has a very refreshing smell, yet very mild smell.
Alcohol free and hence doesn’t dry out skin.
Didn’t break me out.
Quite inexpensive.

Pore minimization is not significant enough. But is the case with almost all toners.

Will buy it again?..May be.
