Review: All Organics Lemongrass Facial Toner

 Ever since I started using organic soaps, I have been on the lookout for more organic products to try next. In fact, I have been trying various brands and variants of organic soaps left to right and realizing that there’s no harm in using such products, I decided to take another step further. I tried and am reviewing an organic toner this time.
All Organics Lemongrass Facial Toner is quite different from other commercially-available toners I have tried before. Apart from being organic, this is my first toner with an atomizer. LOL! But yes seriously, this one is indeed a breath of fresh air from the usual liquid and cotton partnership during application.

This toner comes in a green transparent bottle with labels printed on a sheet of paper and pasted on the body of the bottle. Actually, the general appearance of the bottle is nothing fancy. By simply looking at the bottle, one can easily determine that the product is made by small companies, not by skin care giants. The toner itself is cloudy white and must be shaken well before use.

I am using this toner twice a day (morning and night) and I am about to use up my first bottle. By the way, the 100 ml. bottle costs Php 155 and lasts for about two months when used twice daily. This toner is also sold in 200 ml refill bottle for Php 300.

Product Description:
  • Made of 100% natural ingredients, Lemongrass Facial Toner is made of pure plant waters from 4 skin-loving, skin-nurturing plants, that controls oil without leaving the skin dry. No alcohol, no water added, just pure plant extracts. The plant's high anti-bacterial properties help prevent pimples and aid in faster healing of outbreaks.
  • Store in the ref as a refreshing face cooler, use after washing to tone and refine skin texture.

What I like about this product:
Refreshing - one word that best describes the product. I love that fresh feeling I get each time I apply the toner on my face. Then once absorbed by the skin (which usually happens within seconds or a minute), it gives that semi-matte finish and makes the skin look supple. It is not drying nor cause stinging sensation during application. Although the first application feels weird because of the cooling/refreshing reaction, I eventually got used to it. The same goes for the smell. At first I thought it’s too overpowering for me and almost turn my back to it but as I continuously use it, I can no longer be bothered by the smell or that cooling reaction. Actually, toner time equals fun time for me right now.

Initially, I doubted this toner’s cleaning power but after using it, I realized that it cleans the skin like other drugstore toners, but in a more gentle way. No redness, stinging sensation or any harsh reaction during application. This toner is true to its claim that it “keeps pimples at bay”. When I started using this, a few pimples are feasting on my face but they gradually disappear as I use the product religiously. What is left from those pimples are very light scars that I hope will totally disappear someday soon. I cannot say that this toner lightens scars but it truly helps prevent pimples.

I love that this toner contains 100% natural ingredients therefore I can be at ease that I am not exposing my skin to various chemicals drugstore beauty products often contain.

Will all the benefits this toner offers, I am surely getting my money’s worth.

What I do not like about this product:
What is there not to like about this product? Oh yes! This one is not widely available in department stores or drugstores in Iloilo. All Organic products are only available online and a few resellers in the area. Lucky for me because I have a friend who is a reseller.

It is not evident that the product is effective in minimizing the size of my pores (no product can minimize the size of the pores, right?) but my blackheads have improved significantly.


  • Using this as stand-alone in caring for your skin may not garner same result. You have to use a cleanser that is appropriate for your skin type.
  • With regards to blackheads, I do not rely on this alone either. I steam my face and use pore strips to get maximum result.
