Ah, hydrating toners! They are one of the most pleasurable stages of skincare, in my opinion. Essences, toners, watery serums- I’m happy to splash layers and layers of them on my face. Origins Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion (henceforth to be shortened to Mega Mushroom Lotion) is one such toner.
I like to layer hydrating products under my eyes, so this seemed like it would fit into my routine well. However, I was actually much more excited about the lip plumping/hydrating uses of this product than the eye plumping. My lips are chronically dehydrated, so having an extra dose of hydration in the mornings would be extremely helpful. I was intrigued to see how effective Bubblewrap was in its ability to hydrate both areas!
If you are anything like me, you spent your formative teen years blasting your face with astringent, drying toners, desperately trying to keep the pimples at bay. Oil was the enemy and I was on a quest to conquer it completely. If you had told me that there was such a thing as a hydrating toner, my teenage mind would have been blown.
