The best, the OG, the one that I will be buried with. This toner is amazing. I layer it under my moisturiser every-damn-day to get the Auckland chlorinated water off my face first then carry a bottle about on hot days. Gentle, smells amazing, gives a plump dewy glow. THIS IS EVERYTHING.
This toner is fabulous. It's really calming on the skin and great for sensitive skin. I find that is actually the most effective toner I've used- if I don't have time to cleanse my skin properly I will just spray some of this on a cotton pad and wipe over my whole face. You will be surprised how much dirt shows up on the pad afterward. If it's a hot day and you just need a little pick-me-up, it's great to just spritz over your face or throw in your bag for on the go. When I went to Europe on my last holiday I ran out of this toner and then couldn't do my skincare routine for a few days because it felt wrong to do it without it. I need this toner at all times, it's great.
It was my very first Antipodes product and it was love at first spritz and the beginning of a fascinating discovery of this unique and one-of-a-kind natural beauty brand from New Zealand. I am a huge fan of natural toners because of the hydrating and refreshing properties. I was very curious about its unique ingredients like mamaku black fern. The Ananda toner has a very delicate rose scent and is exactly what I need when using a toner: it's very gentle and hydrating (which is very important to me as I normally have dry skin). I love putting the Worship or the Hosanna Serum on my face as long as it's still wet after misting it with this toner. This allows a better absorption of the serum and a deeper penetration into the skin. It's also very refreshing and soothing, especially after sun exposure. I can't say how many bottles I've already emptied, because this toner is what I can't miss in my morning and evening skincare routine.
Ananda quickly became part of my facial routine - it smells divine and absorbs without feeling sticky afterwards. I follow with any of Hosanna, Joyous or Apostle serums and roll in using a face roller. My skin loves me for incorporating this refreshing toner into my skincare ritual! I’m so grateful to my friend who first introduced me to the range about 4 years ago now!
Refreshing mist spray that smells devine and leaves skin feeling hydrated. No skin drying out like other toners.
