Small Joys and Skin Toners


When I was single, I used to enjoy walking around the aisles of supermarkets or drugstores and shopping for toiletries.  It’s one of those “small joys” I really enjoyed indulging as a single woman, not shopping for clothes, but instead buying”beauty products”, excluding make-up.  I never really wore make-up even when I was younger.  Does that sound odd?

And of course as a single working-woman, money wasn’t much of an issue. I could pick-up products without worrying about the cost. It’s a whole different story now that I’m a mother. I always double check prices and compare them before chucking them in my trolley. I would never buy anything expensive, the “mummy guilt” would always set in and I would always think “With that price, I’d rather buy something nice for little T”. Besides, I barely have enough time to pick up stuff for myself now, before hearing a little whingy voice saying ” Can we go now?”

Ever since I’ve become a mother, my priorities have changed.  The little one always comes first. Besides, I can’t really spend time in the bathroom longer than I have too, without an impatient knock on the door and that little voice (again) asking “What are you doing in there mummy? Are you doing a poo?”

But now that little T is getting older,  I’m slowly putting the “me” back on the list.  As mothers, it’s important to think of our needs too, even if it’s something as superficial as toiletries. After all, it’s a lovely feeling to pamper oneself isn’t it?

This Vitamin C Toner is all about just that – loving our skin the way it should be. It has a really refreshing “citrusy” smell which T really likes. “You smell like lemons mummy!” And that scent aways reminds me of summer.

I also love that it is made of natural ingredients, especially since I have very sensitive skin.

The only negative comment I have for this Vitamin Toner is the price. It’s a little bit too much for me. Then again, if price isn’t an issue for you, I highly recommend this product. I’ve been using this for about a week now and I certainly like the feel of my face. It certainly feels cleaner and fresher after every use. And to top it off, I have the smell of summer on me!  And that to me is precious!  Click here if you want to try it out too.
