Neutrogena Fine Fairness Toner Review

A few days back when I had spoken about my skincare routine here, I have not mentioned about any toner. However, I realized that I should be using a toner this summer, so I got this Neutrogena Fine Fairness Toner.


Claims:
  • Neutrogena Fine Fairness Toner has special liposome delivery system that enhances effectiveness of whitening ingredient to lighten overall complexion
  • Vitamin C and Essential Soy, an exclusive soybean extract, help reduce discolouration and promote even-toned skin
  • Exclusive combination of natural extracts and skin conditioners replenish moisture
  • Leaves skin soft and smooth
  • Clinically proven to improve overall skin fairness and translucence
  • Alcohol-free, oil-free, non-comedogenic, allergy-tested

Price: Rs.299 for 150 ml


Packaging: The toner comes in a silver cardboard packaging, with the image of the bottle on it. Inside the lovely transparent bottle of toner is very simple and looks like distilled water.

Product: The product is a transparent watery fluid that is a bit sticky.


My Experience: The reason of purchasing this particular product is that I have some dark spots on my cheeks and I badly want to get rid of that.The inclusion of Vitamin C and Soy also was a very attractive feature for me. The first thing I loved about the product is the totally transparent watery form and the clean med type packaging. The fragrance is a bit strong but it does not stay for a long time. The product is quite sticky for the skin. I guess it is because of the moisturizing claim. Because of its thick formulation it does not spread on the face so smoothly. However, it gets absorbed into the skin in some time and actually even if I do not use a moisturizer, the skin does not feel dry. I have observed that whenever I use it after a day out, to get rid of my tan, the complexion actually looks much fresh. It has not been a long time that I have started using the Neutrogena Fine Fairness Toner, still the spots on my face which had become quite dark, have started to lighten a bit. I wish it was not so greasy when applied.


Pros:
1. Nice packaging
2. Freshens skin
3. Brightens complexion
4. Lightens spots to some extent
5. Moisturizing
6. Good for dry skin

Cons:
1. Greasy
2. Does not spread easily on skin
3. Takes time to get absorbed
4. Fragrance may seem to be strong for some

Rating: 3.75/5


Overall, I think this toner is decent enough for people with drier skin types, who want to enhance the flawlessness of their complexion. Oily skinned girls like me, can find it too greasy.
