Lisa Lise Toners Review

lisaliseIf you read my post on skin toners you’ll know the background to this review.  Lisa Lise is a Danish cosmetic scientist who develops individualised cosmetic products to suit the needs of her clients.  She offered to do a skin toner for me when I said that I wasn’t sure what a skin toner actually did.  In fact she went one better and has done two for me.

The difference was I think only in the fragrance.  One was called Herbal Male and the other Manly Man.  Both were very natural smelling, and I assume the smells were achieved with blends of essential oils rather than with synthetic fragrances.  That is very much the kind of thing I like, though I am not sure how many people are with me on that.  I don’t have any issue with the safety of synthetic fragrances – I just prefer the smell.

The formulations weren’t particularly cooling and I don’t think that they had a very high alcohol content, and maybe no alcohol at all.  They weren’t at all sticky and they rubbed in very easily.  It was quite an enjoyable experience.

After applying them I went for a walk around the town.  It wasn’t quite as cold as I was expecting, but even so I did feel that there was some protective effect from the toners.

All in all, a very satisfying experience and I’ll be enjoying finishing off the bottles.  Lisa Lise does a lot more than just toners, and her website explains her offering with style and attention to detail.  There is clearly a lot more to Denmark than simply Lego, delicious pastries and Haagen Dazs.

    Haagen-Dasz isn’t Danish, it’s from the USA and they just made up a vaguely Scandinavian-sounding name to get people to buy it.
