Pai Lotus & Orange Blossom Bioaffinity Toner review
I was interested though when Pai launched their two Bioaffinity Toners (one for dry skin and one for combination skin, both suitable for sensitive skin). Pai is a brand I have a lot of time and respect for: they don't make outrageous claims for their products, the formulations are simple (to avoid irritating sensitive skins) but use effective natural ingredients. I've had (consumer) samples of the cleansers and moisturisers before, and liked them a lot.
The Lotus & Orange Blossom Bioaffinity Toner comes in a 50ml spray bottle, which sprays a fine mist without wasting the toner on cotton pads (which is a good thing - it's £30 for 50ml so you don't want to waste it). It doesn't contain alcohol, and the orange blossom and lotus waters are, according to Pai, living waters extracted directly from the plant. It also contains aloe, vegetable glycerin and two plant extracts (the ingredients list is at the bottom of this post). It smells lightly of the orange blossom; a subtle honeyed orange scent.
My skin has been less reactive to sudden changes in temperature (going from cold air outside to warmer air inside, or vice versa) and I've noticed that I haven't had any dry flaky skin on the sides of my nose either. I do think the Pai Lotus & Orange Blossom toner has provided additional hydration to my skin and is more effective than splashing my face with tap water.
