Final thoughts on the Fennel Seed Facial cleanser and Green Tea Toner

Image From: beautips.info

CLICK HERE for my initial thoughts on cost, how difficult/easy it was to create, and directions/ingredients, etc.

After using this product for a few weeks, here are my final thoughts on both:

Fennel seed facial cleanser: 
Cons- The nice hint of lemon smell that I enjoyed initially was gone by the second day. What was left was just the smell of, well, fennel seeds. It does not have a rotten, or even "bad" smell, it is just distinct. Considering you are rubbing it into your face (in close proximity to your nose) it could make or break your decision on future use. I know for myself, it deterred me from grabbing it out of the fridge a few times. That coupled with the fact that it is very cold (from being kept in the fridge) also made me cringe. I think in the summer time the cool feel would be refreshing, but in the midst of the blizzard of 2011 it felt more like an inconvenience.

Pros- It seemed to really work. My face felt firm, clean, and fresh after use. My pores appeared tightened and smaller. I can't speak as to whether or not it officially "cleaned" my skin, but it certainly felt good after use. It is not powerful enough to remove make-up, but it is gentle enough to use as often as you would desire. It was inexpensive (see link above) fairly easy to make with the right utensils, and lasted much longer than anticipated. I would say with 1-3 uses a day it could easily last a month.

Overall- 1-10 I would give this product a 7. I took into account; price, how easy it was to make, and the fact that it actually worked! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a natural, chemical free facial cleanser.

Green tea toner:
Cons- Well, the biggest one would be that it turns your skin green! I quit use of this one fairly early on because there are few public places I felt comfortable going looking like the Hulk :) This product also had to be kept in the fridge, which made for a cold wash.

Pros- The green does come off easily (a splash of water) but it adds a step to cleaning. Also, this one was crazy cheap and easy to make (see link above)! The few times I talked myself into using it, it seemed to work really well. The smell is pleasant and the skin is left feeling firm afterward. I think I actually preferred it between the two, unfortunately, I do not think it's one I will be using again. This one also seemed to last much longer than anticipated.

Overall- The green skin was a deal-breaker for me. Call me a diva, but while I enjoy living a "green" lifestyle, I do not need my face to match.
