Toning is a vital part of the cleansing regime and should be done religiously. A good toner helps to remove any remaining bits of dirt and oil left by the facial cleanser and maintains the pH balance of the face for a even-toned complexion. I switched to Lotus Herbals Basiltone Clarifying & Balancing Toner from the onset of summers and would be reviewing it today for the interest of my readers.
Basiltone is a dynamic blend of basil leaf and cucumber extract which restores natural pH balance of combination or oily skin. Helps tighten pores and removes any residue of makeup, pollution and excess oils. As a result skin is clear, clean and fresh.
Water, Glycerin, Cucumus sativa (Cucumber) Extract, Ocimum basilicum (Basil) Extract, AzadirachtaIndica (Neem) Extract, 2-Phenoxyethanol, Methyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben, Fragrance

The toner has a greenish tint and comes in a plastic bottle with a pump. This makes it travel friendly as there is no fear of spillage or wastage of the product. I keep it in the refrigerator and like the cooling effect when I use this toner. I was earlier using rose water to tone my skin but switched to this one as my skin is super oily and I was looking for something which would remove the excess oil from my face without stripping it off it’s natural oils. I would say I am quite happy with this product as it mattifies my face and keeps oiliness at bay for a longer period. It feels a bit sticky on application but the feeling disappears after a few minutes. The trick is to let the toner get completely absorbed in the skin before applying any moisturizer and Voila you have a fresh and glowing complexion. I don’t like the stickiness and the fact that it takes time to get completely absorbed in the skin. I am also a bit skeptical about the parabens in the ingredient list considering the product is from a herbal brand. Apart from this I am quite happy with the results and will purchase this again.
