LUSH Breath of Fresh Air Toner for Dry Skin

When LUSH says “Breath of Fresh Air” they really mean it!

All LUSH toners are slightly different than what you may be used to and as Martha Stewart would say “that’s a good thing.”  They are alcohol-free and work by providing a moisture boost to the skin.  They are packed with skin-soothing essential oils that help combat tiredness, dryness and blemishes.

And all the while, rose absolute and aloe vera are soothing dry areas.  Read more
