Skincare is one of those things that if a trusted blogger loves it, I have to try it. I've left it quite a while before actually investing in the Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner but I do remember Kate from gh0stparties (skincare goddess anyone?) reviewing this and really liking it so I finally jumped in and purchased it. I've been using the brightening toner 2 or 3 times a week by just popping a small amount onto a cotton pad and sweeping across my face after cleansing and before any other bits I'm doing that evening. I leave it to dry naturally for a few minutes and just carry on with my routine, simple as that. Some people have documented a tingle after using this, bearing in mind that it does use fruit acids to prevent build up of dead skin cells and encourage cell renewal, but I've not really felt anything but a fresh and clean feeling afterwards. I can definitely see my skin looking and feeling clearer and smoother which is fantastic, especially with my sexy dry patches that pop up every once in a while. The only thing I would want to say is to make sure you use an SPF when using this as it can make skin more prone to burning, but c'mon guys, we should be using that SPF everyday!
