[REVIEW] Huxley – Toner: Extract It

Hi guys!

Its been awhile since the last time I posted a review. I couldn’t find any motivation to write lately, on the weekends I just want to binge watching my favourite series and didn’t do anything else.

But finally, today I’m back again with a review of a toner – my new favourite toner, which is Huxley – Toner: Extract It. This toner has been on the market for quite a long time, but I just bought this last month because I started kinda get obsessed with Huxley products. Soooooo without further ado, let’s begin!

Packaging

Just like the other Huxley product, the toner came in a minimalist glass bottle. This is what I hate about Huxley, their packaging is made from a glass, as someone who is very clumsy this could be a disaster for me; there’s a chance that I’ll drop the bottle in the future. But, other than that, I’m a big fan of minimalist packaging so I’m in love with the packaging.

Product  Claims

  • A slightly acidic toner formulated with more than 90% naturally derived ingredients and cactus extract.
  • It helps maintain the skin’s pH balance and leaves your skin clear and moisturized.
  • Provide adequate hydration with a rich texture

This toner contains Prickly Pear Seed Oil as one of their main ingredients, it has a moisturizing and anti-aging effect and basically they substituted water/aqua in this toner with cactus extract. . The pH level of this toner is 5.5 which makes it slightly acidic.

Ingredients

Opuntia Ficus-Indica Stem Extract, Propanediol, Dipropylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Opuntia Ficus-Indica Seed Oil, Lagerstroemia Indica Flower Extract, Rosa Centifolia Flower Extract, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Xanthan Gum, Butylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Water, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance

This toner is alcohol free, parabens free, and mineral oils free. However, it does still contains fragrance. Tbh, the scent of this toner could be overwhelming at first as the fragrance is very strong. It overwhelms me at first, but I kinda get used to it now and it doesn’t last that long anyway, the scent disappear after a few second.

My thought?

This is my new HG toner, I really like this toner (despite of the strong scent and glass bottle). No matter how gentle my cleanser is, I always feel like my skin is really dry right after I wash my face, so far the only toner that can undo the dry feeling is Klairs’s, and now this toner is also added to my list. I love how hydrating this toner is, and it also gave me a refreshed feeling. Even for my combination skin; oily – normal – dehydrated (my skin type is a bit complicated, sometime it could be acne prone too:( I’m so confused), this toner is not too much, this toner might also be really great for those who has  dry skin. Since this toner has a watery texture and lightweight, I also use this as a facial spray, I put it in a little bottle with spray for me to use whenever my skin feels dehydrated throughout the day, and it does really help.

However, this toner is a bit expensive compared to other K-Brand’s toner, as it only contains 120ml but it cost around $31 or Rp. 280.000 – 300.000 in Indonesia. But I’d repurchase this anyway because its worth the money.
