FriYAY Favourite – It’s not quite a genie in a bottle

I have had that song stuck in my head all week while thinking of a title for this post, so I just went with it.Ā *Sings* It’s a toner in a bottle, you gotta squirt it on your face…(to the tune of genie in a bottle). Okay so maybe I won’t become an award-winning song writer šŸ™Ā Hopefully, at least the ear worm will end now.

It’s Friday….so ya’ll know what that means…it’s FriYAY! I’m keeping it short and sweet today (I hope), because this is freakin post number 4 for the week! I don’t want to be spamming you gals, but I didn’t want to flake on my FriYAY series. Let me know if I should pause the FriYAY posts for August, seeing as Thursday will be a party post every week? I don’t mind putting in the work, but I just don’t want to be overloading you all. <3

I have featured this product on the blog before in this post, but today I’m actually not featuring the product. If any of you follow me on twitter, you may have seen this:Ā 


So the product is no more…..but…the bottle still is very much around! I just loved this idea of spraying my toner on my face. Toner is very much on my ‘must do’ list after I saw Jackie Aina’s video about it helping with the pore situation (you can check that out here). So I looked in my cupboard and I found toner from The Body Shop, Isabella Garcinea and then the 2mls that was left of the original toner in the bottle. I made my own special toner brew and the bottle was back in business.

When I get out of the shower, I pat my face dry and I spritz away. I get dressed while it dries, then add my serum/oil/moisturiser. This may be something you have been doing for ages and I’ve only just come to the party, but I think this is revolutionary. lol. Also, no more wastage of cotton rounds, because those things are expensive and you use a lot of them!

That’s that for this week’s FriYAY fave! I think this saves time, saves cotton rounds and it’s a great way to get the benefits of a few toners if you’re like me, with 3 half empty bottles lying around.

Have you joined the revolution yet? Will you? What’s your favourite toner?
