Chamomile ACV Facial Toner
The toner is a simple blend of just two ingredients: roman chamomile distillate and raw, unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar. It does smell pretty strongly of vinegar initially, but it's not a scent that lingers on the skin. Chamomile is an excellent soothing ingredient, great for minimizing skin redness and inflammation, and apple cider vinegar purifies and kills bacteria, while restoring a healthy skin pH and helping to maintain the skin's acid mantle. Apple cider vinegar also contains malic acid, so the toner has gentle exfoliating properties and boosts healthy cell turnover. My skin can be sensitive, so some days I like to dilute the toner with a little plain water, but other times I will use it at full strength.
Revitalize Eye Serum
The Eye Serum is a blend of apricot kernel, evening primrose, rosehip and camellia oils, infused with calendula extract and boosted with vitamin E and lavender, helichrysum and geranium essential oils. The blend is housed in a convenient rollerball and is light enough that it sinks right in upon application. I mentioned the serum briefly in my Evening Skincare Routine, and my opinion, with longer use, has stayed pretty true to those first impressions. It's very soothing and hydrating and I notice less puffiness in the morning when I've used the serum the previous night, but it hasn't made much difference to the darkness under my eyes.
Citrus Passion Body Oil
Saving my favorite for last, I'm completely smitten with this body oil. The Citrus Passion scent is a fresh, uplifting blend of lime, bergamot and litsea cubeba that's spot on for spring. Jojoba, rice bran, apricot kernel and grapeseed oils make a great base that hits that perfect balance between fast absorption and good hydration. The oil leaves my skin feeling silky and soft, and very delicately scented. It's even lightweight enough that I can use it on dry skin without feeling greasy or slippery!
The Bottom Line
Holiskin products are simple but very well-thought out formulations of high quality, plant oils and botanicals. The Citrus Passion Body Oil was the clear standout favorite for me, but I think all three products are great within their own right. If you have more acne-prone skin than me, I've also read more than one rave review of the Intensive Repair Acne Scar Treatment.
