I try: AUM Ultra Hydrating Rose Facial Toner

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to meet Julian Markin, who along with his mother Susan founded the Australian organic skincare line known as Aum back in 2008.
A tightly edited collection of incredibly well priced certified organic skincare products to cleanse, tone, moisturise and more, each little slice of Aum contains anti ageing plant extracts clinically proven to even out skin tone promote a more radiant complexion, protect skin against UV damage and significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Julian explains that their skincare only uses “certified organic skincare ingredients that are pure and potent. They contain highly concentrated antioxidants and skin nourishing agents whilst also being very gentle on skin.” No small claim, but their growing success speaks for itself. “You can be certain that our products contain no parabens, no sulphates, no mineral oils, no silicones, no petrochemicals, no artificial colours and no animal testing,” he adds, which always gets a huge tick in my book.
One of the products I tried on the day that really impressed me was the Ultra Hydrating Rose Facial Toner, which is one potent little number. Toners have been out of favour for a few years now mainly due to the fact that those found in most skincare lines were either ineffectual or – at the other end of the spectrum – akin to paint stripper in their modus operandi, but more and more outstanding examples have been emerging. This is definitely one of the latter, a bio skin tonic that instantly hydrates, tones and freshens and feels amazing on the skin. It is certified organic with 95 per cent organic content, and its key ingredients include Hyaluronate (the most hydrating ingredient known to cosmetic science) to enhances cell activity and plump and firm, and Rose Damascena Floral Water to aid skin clarity, balance pH,
refresh and soothe. You can use it morning and evening after cleansing, as well as throughout the day for radiant skin and a moisture boost. I only wish this were available as a spray though – it would be a great addition to the handbag!
Definitely a fabulous example of a toner done well, I can’t wait to get my hands on this baby!
