I bought this a few weeks ago with my Tesco order as I'd run out of toner and didn't have the chance to go into town. I'd heard a lot of good things about the Tesco Vitamin E skincare range so I thought I'd give it a go. To see what I thought, keep on reading :)

What Tesco say: Cleanses and Tones. Dermatologically tested. Paraben Free. pH Balanced. Toner with Vitamin E. This range has been enriched with Vitamin E for its antioxidant, protecting and conditioning properties to care for your skin. This refreshing formulation will remove the last traces of cleanser and make-up to leave your skin feeling fresh and toned.
What I say: I thought this sounded pretty good to start off with. I mean why pay a lot more for a product that would have the same benefits? Then again, that's the student scrooge within me ;P I agree that this product does cleanse and tone, my skin felt nice and refreshed after use. The one thing that I would say is if you have sensitive eyes, do not buy this product. Obviously, you're not meant to put this in your eyes, and the bottle carries a warning to this effect. I didn't put it in my eyes, I didn't even put it near my eyes, yet they stung like hell after using it. So that's a thumbs down from me. Sorry Tesco.
What Tesco say: Apply a small amount of toner to a cotton pad and wipe the face after cleansing or as a skin refresher during the day. Complete your skincare regime with other products from the Vitamin E range.
What I say: The one thing I disliked about this product (apart from the OWWW MY EYES thing) was the packaging. It's just a screw top lid with quite a large neck on the bottle really. It could have done with one of those squeezy hole thingys - you know the ones I mean I'm sure. That's my only issue with it. As long as you're careful when applying it to a cotton pad, i.e. place cotton pad over neck of the bottle then gently tip the bottle up to get some product, you'll be fine. I love the smell of this product, it's gorgeous and doesn't smell chemically like some I've used in the past. Thumbs up.

Product: 7/10 (purely because it hurt my eyes)
Repurchase: Unfortunately not, unless they bring out a sensitive formula.
Have you tried this or anything else from the Vitamin E range? What did you think?
