A fabulous toner with an array of uses


Refreshing, filled with antioxidants


No research to back up the benefits of MSM

I haven’t discovered a good toner in a while (La Vie Celeste’s is one of the nicest, along with L’uvalla, and I have a fondness for one called Peach Moon Water), so I jumped on Sevani’s when some samples arrived at the office. But the term toner doesn’t do justice to Sevani Rose Hyaluronic Age Defying Tonique ($39 in the shop) with Pomegranate & MSM (2 fl oz for $39 in the shop). This mist balances the skin as a toner should, but it is so versatile that I have found it does much more.

Simply spraying Sevani’s Tonique on the face is a refreshing treat and as it dries on the surface of the skin it is imparting some useful anti-aging ingredients. I’ll come back to them in a minute, but pondering them one day I had a flash of inspiration. I decided to spray my face with Tonique before using my Sirius Aurora.

Whilst the long term benefits of LED light therapy are fairly well documented, there is a study that found that the short-term effect is to do free radical damage. Unless, that is, the light is used with an antioxidant. In the study, the researchers used a green tea serum. I tend to use Your Best Face Antioxidants Concentrate ($65 in the shop), but had run out and was wondering what to do when I thought of Sevani’s mist, since it has antioxidant pomegranate, acai fruit and tremella (of which more in a moment).

The other idea I had was to use it with Gwyneth Paltrow favorite Rodin Olio Lusso facial oil, which is supposed to be applied to “moist” skin. A reader commented on my Rodin review saying she obtained the moist thing with a spray of rose water. That seemed such a delicious idea that I stored it away in the back of my mind and then suddenly remembered that Sevani’s Rose Hyaluronic Age Defying Tonique has rose hydrosol and a refreshing spritz would be a perfect precursor to the Rodin. And so it is. Quite lovely, in fact.

In a base of aloe vera, there are a couple of ingredients worth a shout out, not least because they take this way above your average toner. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is an organic compound that contains sulfur. It is one of those ingredients that is touted as a cure all for arthritis, snoring, most allergies, wrinkles and hair loss. There isn’t much research to back any of this up. But we can live in hope.

Then there is tremella hyaluronic acid. Tremella is a mushroom that has water-retention capabilities (as well as being a source of vitamin D) and, used cosmetically, it feels less sticky than sodium hyaluronate. Tremella is also supposed to be an antioxidant that enhances the body’s own superoxide dismutase.

Sevani’s Tonique has it down to a T – a toner, tonic and a veritable treat.

    Hi Peggy, it is my understanding that it is pure vitamin C - eg ascorbic acid - that should be avoided with copper peptides. In any case, the issue can be avoided by using them at different times (eg morning and night)

    Marta, this toner sounds beautiful! However, it brings up a question I've had for a while now - since this has pomegrante extract does it have Vitamin C in it? I'm using Cell CPR, which has copper peptides, & have read a couple of places not to mix Vitamin C & copper peptides, as Vitamin C causes copper peptides to misbehave. This question also extends to products with rose hip oil/extracts. I don't know if acai has Vitamin C, but it seems likely it would. Any info on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Toners are one of my weak spots. If I don't pull back on the brakes, my cupboards would be full of all the brands toners! My reigning favorite (for about 3 years running) is Dermalogica Age Smart Antioxidant Hydramist. But then I love my peptides. I also like La Vie Celeste and Juice Beauty's Green Apple toners. Some toners I use on a cotton ball in place of a cleanser. Some I use for instant hydration. Dermalogica I use daily before serum application, but also will spritz it on if I feel my face needs a refresher. I like the idea of using it before LED. Good one! ~jk
