As you guys know, I absolutely love the Etsy shop, FacenEarth. So far, the silver colloidal face wash is the only wash that keeps my acne and rosacea at bay. I didn’t really care for its matching toner though so, I bought a rosewater toner from another Etsy shop. I loved the toner, but I just didn’t love paying $10 for such a small bottle. I decided to cruise FacenEarth’s Etsy site for a toner and purchased the papaya toner for its brightening properties. I thought it could give my bio oil some help. Besides, my skin is in major need of a glow boost.
The owner of the shop was nice enough to send me a small bottle of the matching cleanser to go with the toner. Well, papaya apparently does nothing for my skin. I’m having a break out right now (that time again) and switching to use the little sample is not helping, but I’m going to use them up because I paid for them and I don’t like to waste. I know for sure now that I have to stick with the silver cleanser, the little papaya cleanser does not keep my rosacea away. I have that annoying little red rash on my cheek. I can’t wait to use all of the little bottle up.
The cleanser actually smells pretty good, but for some reason I’m not digging the smell of the toner. Not to mention, the main reason I bought it (size issues) seemed to be a waste because the bottle isn’t much bigger from the rosewater toner.
I ended up purchasing another rosewater toner off of Amazon. I just really want to use a rosewater toner after seeing what it did for my skin and this one had rave reviews. This one is very reasonably priced at $8 for 8 ounces! Not to mention, it has multiple uses. I’m also going to test it out as a make up setter and a spray for my curly hair. I think I’ll write multiple reviews for each purpose.
I won’t be testing that toner until I use up the papaya toner. If I don’t like the new rosewater toner, I’ll just go back to the old Etsy one. Since it apparently has multiple uses (Amazon rosewater toner), if it doesn’t work for my skin I could possibly use it for something else.
But just because the papaya toner didn’t work for me, doesn’t mean it won’t work for you. If you think your skin might benefit from it, give it a try! FacenEarth has amazing products!
