Himalaya Gentle Refreshing Toner Review

My experience with Himalaya products is not very good and after a long time I purchased this toner just because I bumped into it while shopping in Spencer. It was cheap so thought of giving it a try.

What it claims : A special blend of herbs that controls excess oil secretion and makes your skin oil-free. It is enriched with Lemon and Jasmine which refresh and cool your skin, Sensitive Plant extracts that control excess oil secretion, and Sweet Marjoram that nourishes the skin, to keep it healthy and radiant.

Ingredients Include:

  • Jasminum sambac (Jasmine, Jati)
  • Mimosa pudica (Sensitive Plant, Lajjalu)
  • Origanum majorana (Marjoram, Marubaka)
  • Citrus limon (Lemon, Nimbuka)

Use Directions:

After using Himalaya Herbals Deep Cleansing Milk, pour a few drops of Gentle Refreshing Toner on a cotton pad and wipe thoroughly over your face and neck.

Packaging : Comes in a semi-transparent plastic bottle which is not at all bulky or heavy. The green screw cap makes it very secure & safe. Inside there's another plastic cap with a small hole in between. Although it's a handy bottle but I would surely prefer a spray bottle for a toner rather than this one as in my opinion it's not that convenient.

This is how the toner looks - like clean water, no color.

Price - INR 70/- for 100 ml.

Pros -

  • Cheap for 100 ml.
  • Alcohol free.
  • Very mild smell.
  • Gives matte effect.
  • Herbal ingredients.

Cons -

  • Feels sticky. After drying when I touched my face it feels sticky which I really hated. :(
  • Contains Parabens.

Rating : 2 / 5 (Just because of sticky feeling I deducted 3 points)

Recommend : I will not recommend it to you girls because there is much better toners out there in the market. I won't buy it again.


  1. not tried dis one yet.... thnks for sharing

  2. @ Riddhi jholapara - pleasure is mine dear.

    I didn't like it. :(

  3. I agree that this might leave a sticky feeling. But honestly, I have used up two bottles and it seems that this worked for me in the long term.
    :) :)

  4. @ Nivedita - Because of it's sticky feeling I just stopped using it after applying 2-3 times. That's why can't say much about it's effectiveness. :) That's great its worked for you. :)
