Texture: Sort of gloopy. It’s thicker than a water toner. This can be good or bad depending on what you like. For me, this balls up/pills under other skincare if I apply too much. This is similar to the Hada Labo lotion in terms of texture, but a bit thicker.
Good under makeup?: If it balls-up, no. Depends how much I use (need to be careful).
-Easy to Travel
-Balls up/pills under makeup (if you use too much – so you need to be sparing with this)
-Essential Oils make this not suitable for everyone
-Can be considered ‘gloopy’ Not as watery as other toners (similar to the Purito Centella Toner in texture).
Overall: This pills / Balls up on me (after rubbing my skin so it makes layering difficult). Therefore I have to give it a lower score. The thing is, this is hydrating! I’m not a fan of the fragrance however. I would love to try the unscented toner because I think I would like it more.
Overall Score: 3.5/5
