Origins Make A Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Treatment Lotion. £20 for 150ml

I have to be honest, toner isn't something I've ever used on a regular basis, just because I've always felt like they were a bit of a con and never felt as though I really needed that extra step.  More recently though, I've been using one, as I think it must do 'something' even though I don't necessarily see instant results. The latest addition to my new toner family is this 50ml serving from Origins, which I received in the Origins Merry Moisturisers Gift Set at Christmas.

The purpose of this lotion is to prepare the skin for moisturisation after cleansing and to help the skin retain moisture, leaving the skin looking and feeling more plump and healthy. Of course, like the other products from the Make A Difference range, the lotion includes some key, active ingredients to help the skin retain moisture; Rose of Jericho and Cactus Extract.

I have been using this as part of my evening skincare routine, and using a different toner on a morning. I feel as though, for me, this lotion is better suited for evening use as I prefer to partner it with thicker, more intense moisturisers and let them work their magic while I'm in the land of nod. As with any other toners, I simply put a couple of drops of this onto a cotton pad and swipe across my face after cleansing, before applying my facial oil and moisturiser. Like I said above, I have never felt like toners really made much of a difference to my skin. This is different. I actually do notice a difference when using this lotion. My skin feels very refreshed, soothed and hydrated as soon as I've applied it. I can't say that using this product has single-handedly changed my skin for the better, but it definitely feels nice to use and think it gives my skin that extra nudge to help it retain moisture.  For that, I do really like this product and think it is definitely a step above your regular toner - I'm just not sure that I can justify £20 for a bottle of toner.
