DIY: Green Tea Ice cubes (toner)

Monday, September 23, 2013

What's up girlies? Today I just want to share with you guys this very effective toner that I currently been obsessed with! Since I just ran out of my Kiehls toner, I did my own home made toner that not only is effective in tightening your pores but also very affordable! We all know that Ice facials are very popular in Asia.. In fact, I've seen BeautyQQ having her own Ice facial after her laser acne treatment and michellephan also did her own!  Now, when I was in high school, I used to run ice cubes all over my face just for fun and just to give myself a bit of a cold facial, but then I realize that I haven't done this in a while so last week I decided to make my own Green Tea Ice cubes with my holy grail product--- Jason Vitamin E oil. :)

Toner is actually made just to tighten the pores.. so why spend money if you can make your own right?

So here's what you need:
 *Green tea
* Plastic wrap
* Ice cube tray
* Toothpick (optional)
*Vitamin E oil (optional)

First: Brew your green tea! the stronger the better. and then add a few drops of Vitamin E oil.

Next step: mix well and then pour your green tea into the tray!

Third step: Place the plastic wrap to cover the green tea and then stick the toothpick, this is the trickiest part because it's hard to make the toothpick stand.. So what you wanna do is to refrigerate it first for like 30 mins and then stick the toothpick. Or since this is just an optional step, you can just leave it on the fridge as it is without the toothpick and the plastic wrap.

Here's what it should look like.. :)

You can use this Green tea toner atleast once or twice everyday.. I prefer using this after washing my face in the morning and then before bed. I massage this on my face in small circles as I go..

 This is really good for de-puffing the face, and constricting large pores plus it brightens the skin and reducing dark under eye circles. Hope you find this helpful beauties and tell me if you've tried this before! :)

  11. Toner is made to balance the PH of skin. Smaller appearance of pores is just an added temporary benefit.
