Ingredients

Brand Overview

Garden Tomato Toner lists alcohol as the second ingredient, which makes this toner too drying and irritating for all skin types. Alcohol also causes free-radical damage and collagen breakdown, which goes against what the antioxidants in this toner do to benefit your skin. This also contains citrus peel oils that contain irritating components that cause further damage. Ouch!

Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: No

Tomato, cucumber and parsley extracts help to clean and tighten pores, leaving skin smoother and firmer. They're blended with sugar cane, sugar maple and bilberry extract, natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), to help boost skin's elasticity and accelerate exfoliation. This formula is recommended for normal to oily skin.

Strengths: Inexpensive.

Weaknesses: Many products have potent fragranced formulas; several formulas packaged in jars, which compromises their ingredients.

With humble beginnings in the town of Bangor, Maine, Burt's Bees is a brand focused on natural-themed, earth-friendly skincare. Unfortunately, in many cases, this also translates to less than beneficial formulas as not all of the natural ingredients used are helpful for skin.

Many of the plant extracts and oils used in these products, including orange oil, cinnamon oil, clove oil, lemon oil, eucalyptus oil, pine tar, alcohol, lime oil, and balsam peru, are problematic for skin and present a significant risk of irritation or a sensitizing reaction. Both the intriguing philosophy and inexpensive products are attractive, but it takes more than that to establish reliable products that are good for skin. Its also important to consider the potential benefit (or potential harm) of the ingredients used.

There are some formulas to consider among the brands offerings, but some to be wary ofsee our individual reviews on Burts Bees products for more details.
