Mir·a·cle: an amazing product or achievement, or an outstanding example of something.
And that’s exactly what Amanda Lacey Miracle Tonic is. I have been incorporating a toner, tonic, or astringent into my skin care routine even since I was 12 years-old when my mother brought me to Bloomingdale's and introduced me to my greatest love of all, beauty products.
Although I’m embarrassed to say that for a really long time, I had no idea why I was using this post cleaning product or even what it did. For most of my teenage years, I thought it was just makeup remover, as I didn’t wash my face very well apparently.
Not all toners are created equally. They can differ in what ingredients are used depending on what skincare concerns are being addressed. Mostly, they break down extra oil or impurities left behind by your cleanser, they shrink pores, moisturize, balance out pH levels, and prepare your skin to receive serums and creams, maximizing their effects.
I’ve always used a toner, as I believe I was hypnotized by the beauty department at Bloomingdales. Some of the toners I have used throughout the decades seemed to have no visible benefits, while others have had more rewards, but only with long term use. That’s until I tried Amanda Lacey’s Miracle Tonic.
Why it works: here’s what’s in it. Mint Leaf Flavanones, Rosemary, Camphor Oil and Allantoin to heal your skin, reduce redness, and irritation. Antimicrobial Salicylic Acid to brighten, reduce pore size and clear pore congestion.
Use it on problem areas to keep excess oils at bay, or spot dab with a Q-Tip. Good for all skin types, especially oily complexions, calming and repairing.
After using for two days my skin has never been better. Truly a miracle in a bottle.
