DermOrganics Calming Facial Toner and Soapless Facial Cleanser Review

In my quest to improve my skin, I have been trying out new skin care products and I will be sharing my favorites with you.

In my opinion, the best cleansers for your skin are gentle, non-foaming and soapless. I also try to stay away from fragrance and parabans.

With all that being said, I bought me mum a DermOrganic sampler from TJMaxx. It was around $6 and came with a cleanser, moisturizer and hand and body lotion. When I went for a weekend visit to momma's house, I forgot my facial cleanser so she let me borrow her DermOrganic cleanser and from the very first use, I was hooked.
Luxurious, creamy texture. Feels really good on the skin, plus it takes everything off including eye makeup and mascara.
According to the website, DermOrganic's Soapless Facial Cleanser:
  • Purifies, Clarifies and Moisturizes
      -Soap-free, non-abrasive formula
      -Strong enough to remove makeup
      -yet gentle enough for delicate eye area
      -Imparts a fresh tight feel without dryness
      -Plant-based lipids moisturize and balance while cleansing
      -Made withArgan extract of Morocco
      -Rich in Omega-6 andVitamins C&E
      -With Yuzu fruit extract and BotaniCollagenTM
      - Oil-free and fragrance-free

      FRAGRANCE-FREE - But with a clean fresh scent OIL-FREE - While preserving all the benefits of the Moroccan Argan fruit. YUZU EXTRACT - Rich in flavinoids, Vitamin C to help support delicate skin layers PLANT-BASED LIPIDS - Provide natural moisture skin needs OMEGA-6 and ANTIOXIDANTS - Protect from environmental degradation BOTANICOLLAGEN - Plant-derived extract supports skin layers to minimize the appearance of fine lines 
      Along with the Face Cleanser, I decided to try their Calming Facial Toner. I have wanted to incorporate a toner into my routine and I thought this would be a great place to start. According to the packaging, DermOrganic's Calming Facial Toner:
      Balances, Tightens and Refreshes
      Is Vegan
      No Animal Testing 
      Oil and Fragrance Free
      Paraben -Free with No Artificial Preservatives
      Sulfate-Free and Gluten-Free I don't know what gluten free has to do with skin care but I guess everyone loves a trend. 
      No Sodium Chloride, Salt, MEA, DEA or Dyes
      pH Balanced 4.5-5.5
      Mild astringent for all skin types
      After cleansing purifier
      Gently soothes, tighten and freshens
      Leaves an elegant after-feel
      Balances and retains skin pH
      Organic aloe leaf juice rich in Glycoprotein for increased oxygen at cellular level
      Even though both of these products contain ingredients that are skin irritants such as lavender and orange (funny since these are supposed to be calming products), I have experienced no irritation or breakouts. I would definitely re-purchase the cleanser but am on the fence about the toner. The toner does contain some nice ingredients and it does work well with my other products to make my skin look nice and adds another layer of moisture to my routine, however I am not in love and will still be on the search for a toner. 
      There may have been a buy one get one deal going on because I received both of these products for $20 total.
