Next Up....Natural Body Care Awards!!!

A word about toners/hydrosols: You may have noticed that we haven't included a single toner or hydrosol in this lengthy list.  We did that on purpose and for very good reason: you should use the toner that is offered by the same company who makes your cleanser - simple as that.  Cleansers and toners are created to work together so we're not about to recommend a long list of toners by themselves, that just wouldn't make a whole lot of sense.  Pick a cleanser then use that brand's toner and your face will be happy.  

Note: We're linking to our reviews of these products above so you can learn more about them, but if we link directly to the manufacturer that's because we haven't yet published our review and if we're linking to a retailer, that's because that's the only place (that we know of) that you can find the product in the U.S. and/or they're the one who sent us the product to try.

Disclosure: The products included above were sent to us for the the purpose of honest and candid reviews. We really and truly love the products and we're not coaxed, suggested or urged to include them in these awards. This reflects our own personal opinions.  We don't write about everything that we're sent, only those we feel are worth writing about.  We're honest and we're fair.  To read more about our review criteria, click here.
