L'uvalla Eucalyptus Toner- reviewed and recommended

Perhaps it has been the hot and sticky weather we've been having in NYC, but I have been loving getting to know L'uvalla's Eucalyptus Toner. It is incredibly refreshing, removes excess oils from pores that are expanding as temperatures soured into the 90s, calms and invigorates - all without the drying effects of alcohol. This toner also seems to be helpful at keeping breakouts at bay.

Zit control is thanks to antibacterial eucalptus, which also does a good job of keeping storm headaches at bay. Another reason to keep this toner handy in summer is that eucalyptus extract is an effective bug repellent (especially midges and flies). Niaouli (the paper bark tree) is another antibacterial that in Australia is used as a natural hand sanitizer.

There is also lotus flower - something of a signature ingredient for L'uvalla. It is a potent antioxidant (source) and the quercetin it contains seems to strengthen capillaries (so potentially good against broken thread veins). Meanwhile, one of the chemical constituents in sage is sclareol, which has an estrogen-like structure that may contribute to the health of tissues and cells.

Although 30 bucks is a lot for a toner, the 6.7 fl oz bottle (sent to me as a sample) looks as if it will last me a lot longer than the three months promised by L'uvalla. I'll definitely be getting the toner in to join the L’uvalla products in the TIA shop: the Eye/Lip Anti-wrinkle Cream ($66).

I have a full size L'uvalla Orange Toner to give to someone who would like to review it. This one is part of L'uvalla's Age Defying System and is meant to boost circulation and rejuvenate connective tissue. Just leave a comment below.

    I agree, that "salt" in the toner may sound confusing and even "dangerous". However, "salt" is a natural component in our cellular structure; it is also bactericidal. "Salt" maintains the acidic pH of the skin "mantle", which is essential for prevention of skin dehydration.

    Hi Oksana
    So funny that you should post this. I just received James' review of the Orange Toner and he has a very specific take on the salt. His review will be published tomorrow. I'll be sure to post a link from here too. You can compare notes ;)

    Here's the link to James' review:

    I have used Orange Toner for about 2 months. I have combination sensitive skin - the toner has been fantastic for me. On hot days, I even skip the moisturizer in am - just the toner keeps skin moist and shine free. It smells delicious too. The interesting thing about L'Uvalla's toners is that they incorporate salt, which makes the toners more balanced in terms of pH and more skin firendly. Unusually-"smart" ingredient.

    Your description of the toner sounds fantastic! However, I would share it with my daughter as she suffers from acne which seems to worsen during the hot summer months!

    I would absolutely love to try the toner.
    I haven't used a toner in a while and this sounds fantastic!

    In South Mississippi it's already hot and humid. Couple that with the threat of the oil heading our way, and I think this might be a lovely pick me up to try.

    Would love to review the Orange toner. I've been needing a new toner anyway. ;-) I want to see in particular how it helps ease my skin after shaving.
