OZ Naturals Facial Toner & Retinol Serum Review

OZ Naturals Facial Toner & Retinol Serum Review

Retail: OZ Toner $18.00

Retail: OZ Retinol Serum $25.00

If you follow my blog, then you know I love my beauty products.  I love changing up my makeup, hair style, and skin care routine.  Being a blogger allows me the opportunity to try several different brands and I am super excited to try a few products from the OZ Naturals line.  

I heard about OZ Naturals about six months ago while searching Amazon for an all natural facial cleanser.  I started to do a little digging and discovered OZ Naturals offers an entire line of cleansers, toners, serums and moisturizers made from organic and natural ingredients.  

OZ Naturals Retinol Serum

The first product I want to talk about is the OZ Naturals Retinol serum.  Now, this serum contains 2.5% retinol, which is the highest concentration of retinol you can contain without a prescription.  It also contains Astaxanthin and Vitamin E which are powerful antioxidants that help maintain the health of your skin.  In combination, these ingredients are known to reduce hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and fine lines.  

Retinol has time and again proven itself to be a potent youth reviving ingredient. OZ Naturals Retinol combines the power of 2.5% Retinol with a bunch of soothing natural antioxidants that work together to visibly reduce the signs of aging. Plant Derived Vitamin E hydrates and nourishes your skin. This unique formulation not only helps to provide a flawless tone and texture, but also leaves your skin feeling and looking smoother, plumper and younger. 

The serum also comes in a pump bottle versus a jar which makes this a great product for travel as you don't have to worry about spilling or product sticking to the lid of the jar.  One important piece of information: if you’re a first time Retinol user, apply once every other night until your skin is ready to use it daily. Retinol can irritate your skin so it is best to start out slow. 

Oz Naturals Mineral Toner

I mentioned before, using a toner is one product I tend to skip or forget to use.  I always had this misconception that toners were for people who have acne.  As I have learned, this is not true and everyone can benefit from a great toner.  They can be used as a great base before applying serums and moisturizers as well as used throughout the day to freshen your skin and provide hydration.  

The OZ Naturals Mineral Toner contains a combination of natural ingredients such as glycolic acid, amino acids, vitamin c, witch hazel, ocean minerals and active plant extracts which help with damaged skin.  

The directions say to first shake the bottle.  Then you spray your face, neck and décolleté area after you have cleansed your face.  It contains organic sulfur that acts as a healing agent to drive ingredients deep into your skin.  I love the feeling of the cool mist on my face.  Most of the time my face is tight and dry after cleansing and using the toner adds back hydration and moisture.  I notice a slight tingling sensation as well, not sure what ingredient causes that, but it is soothing.  It dries quickly and does not leave my skin oily or leave behind any residue.  If you want to target certain areas of your face, you can use a cotton pad to apply the toner.  

It does have a slight scent that reminds me of witch hazel.  Most of you have no issues with the witch hazel scent, however, some may be like me and not particularly care for it.  Overall, I have been quite happy with this toner and I am glad it has become a vital step in my skin care routine.
