Herbivore Botanicals Jasmine Green Tea Balancing Toner

I grabbed this Herbivore Balancing Toner because of the beautiful bottle. I didn't have much expectation, but it turned out to be one of the best balancing toner I've ever tried.

Brand: Herbivore

Product Name: Jasmine Water Balancing Toner

Purchase from: Sephora, Nordstorm, Anthropologie

Price: USD39

Product SummaryA toner formulated to bring balance to your skin.  It's formulated with organic jasmine water, which is infused with oil-reducing and antioxidant-rich green tea, blemish-fighting white willow bark, soothing aloe vera and toning witch hazel.



  1. An extremely beautiful glass bottle that looks good on your bathroom counter. You can reuse the bottle for other purposes after finishing the product. I am going to use this as my indoor garden spray once I finish it.
  2. It smells so good. It has a strong jasmine scent, not sure about the green tea because I don't think tea on its own has a noticeable scent. When you apply it, it feels like an instant relaxing moment. Unfortunately, the smell doesn't last too long on your skin.
  3. It calms the skin quickly. I like to use this after blackhead extraction. It cools down all the redness and soothes the blemishes almost instantly.
  4. On hot days, you can even use this as a face mist.
  5. It is made of natural ingredients and the key ingredients include jasmine water, green tea extract, and white willow bark.
  6. The brand is against animal testing.


  1. If you don't like jasmine scent, this toner might not be for you because the smell is pretty strong. 
  2. The bottle comes with a spray application. I personally think that it's quite a waste for toner.
  3. The price is quite steep for toner. 

I do support Herbivore brand because it is a clean beauty brand that do not support animal testing and the ingredients are sourced from sustainable suppliers. They also make sure that the ingredients are natural.
