      Oh really? Thanks for sharing! It’s my first time to hear of seaweed being used in skincare products. Will definitely read more on that! 🙂 And you’re welcome!

    I recently bought this Burt’s Bees toner .This is probably best for oily to normal skin types but not for dry skin.. This toner gives cool feel on my skin.I absolutely love this product.

      I agree! Burt’s Bees Garden Tomato Toner isn’t for dry skin. 🙂 I super love it, too!

    Hi! I am a sixteen year old girl who has a problem with pimples. As an ordinary teen, I am insecure with girls who has a clear skin. I’ve tried using facial washes and moisturizers, however it won’t work. As a matter of fact, pimples would grow in different areas. This is frustrating the hell out of me. Please send me some help po! Thank you so much!

      Hi, Belle. I suggest to see a dermatologist so she can analyze your skin and recommend the right products. 🙂 If you want, you may visit my derma, Dr. Beatriz Canga-Pineda, at G/F Parc Chateau along Sapphire Road in Ortigas.

    Hi. I wanted to buy a toner because i have this very oily face. But I use eskinol in the morning and evening. When should i use the toner, before using eskinol or after?

      Hi, Karissa! I suggest to replace Eskinol with one of these toners instead. 🙂 Toner should be applied with a cotton ball or pad after cleansing or washing the face.
