I recently had the opportunity to test the Kahina Giving Beauty Toning Mist ($46). First and lasting impression is that this is a delightful product. The 1.6-ounce product arrives in a sturdy cardboard box, and the spray bottle is a heavy-weight black glass. The mist transmits softly with no streaming.

The light fragrance of Moroccan desert rose is a delight equaled only by the feel of the soft mist cooling your face with a single spray. Of course you can spray onto a cotton ball and use this toner as any other toner, but you will miss out on the wonderful feel of that spray. Kahina recommends spraying the mist on face after cleansing or to spray on cotton pad and wipe over face and neck to feel refreshed.

Ingredients include willow and aspen bark extracts to soothe irritation, and gently cleanse and tone. Water-based argan leaf and white tea extracts deliver healthful antioxidants to reduce the signs of aging. Sodium hyaluronate improves skin hydration while alfalfa extract encourages cell turnover. Rose flower water and aloe vera soothe and calm skin, minimizing redness and other signs of stress.

I find it a plus that 99.98% of the total ingredients are from natural origin. 90.61% of the total ingredients are from organic farming. This is a natural cosmetic certified by ECOCERT Greenlife. The toning mist contains no artificial fragrance and was not tested on animals.

I used this for four weeks and have not yet finished 1/4 of the bottle. I plan to throw this in my desk drawer at the office, so my face and neck will be in for mid-day treat.

Ingredients: Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice*, aqua, rosa damascena (rose) flower water*, salix nigra (willow bark) extract, populus tremuloides (aspen bark) extract, medicago sativa (alfalfa) extract*, sodium hyaluronate, argania spinosa (argan) leaf extract, oryza sativa (rice) seed extract*, camellia sinensis (white tea) leaf extract*, sodium PCA, glycerin, sodium levulinate, sodium anisate, maltodextrin, sodium benzoate.

    I've read about argan oil but have never tried it. To be honest I didn't even know it could be used on the face - I thought it was for hair. Nice to see a versatile oil, and I would live to give it a try!

    This is one product I'd love to try. I've read a lot about argan oil and I'd love to see if it really is as good as it sounds.

    Oh this sounds like a decadent, refreshing yet affordable daily treat. I can't wait to close my eyes and smell the Moroccan desert rose while my skin benefits from this toners natural ingredients.

    Thank you for the review. It helps take the guesswork away : )

    I've used other company's argan oil products. It's funny how they all say 100%, but some are better than others. I always wonder why.
