Lancome Tonique Douceur Softening Hydrating Toner

I've used Lancome Tonique Douceur Softening Hydrating Toner on and off for the past few years, I always end up with it when I buy the Lancome Mascara gift pack in the boxing day sales. It's alcohol free, which I like as my skin doesn't click with alcohol based products and it's for dry skin (I think!) On the whole, I tend to only reach for a toner when I feel like my skin needs a really good clean/remember and bizarrely this actually leaves my skin feeling a little bit sticky but it does feel like it's been deep cleaned still, if that makes sense? Plus, I love that satisfaction of seeing the dirt on the cotton pad - Gross, I know!

I normally find with Toners that they tend to sting my skin a bit, but this doesn't affect my sensitive skin at all. It's scented with a rose smell, which is delicious, it reminds me a little bit of Turkish delight and I love the packaging, it's in a clear bottle with the Lancome flower embossed and white Lancome branding so it looks pretty on my night stand. This is what Lancome have to say about it:

"Rediscover purity. Your skin breathes, naturally beautiful.
Rediscover purity
Your skin breathes, naturally beautiful All skin types, even sensitive. 

This alcohol-free lotion enriched with soothing plant extracts is the perfect finishing touch to makeup removal for dehydrated skin. It gently tones and refines the skin, removing any remaining impurities, without depleting its natural oils. Leaves skin feeling clean, soft and refreshed and ready for your daily treatments."


I love that wording, it definitely sells the product. The thing I'm struggling with though is if I would repurchase it myself at the full price (£21.50 for a 400ml bottle) and I think if i'm truly honest, I don't think I would, but I do have a lot of it to use up so it might me just that, that's swaying me to a "No, I wouldn't re-purchase" on this. It's not that I don't like the product, I really do love it, it's just that it seems a lot of money to spend on a toner that I don't always use, but then that is a big bottle so it's probably quite good value for money, I have the 125 ml bottle which has lasted me ages! So, to stop the rambling, I love the product, it's just a bit of a maybe as to whether I would re-purchase (I'll probably end up with it again though at Christmas when I get the Lancome Mascara set and I definitely won't be disappointed if I do!)

You can buy this at most department stores for around £21.50 for 400ml.
