Cheap Toner: C.O. Bigelow Vitamin Boost Toner Review

It’s obvious I’ve been hauling C.O. Bigelow at BBW lately right? My latest discovery is from the brand new C.O. Bigelow Face Collection. The line includes a slew of interesting bits which I’ll tell you all about soon but today I’ll be concentrating on the new C.O. Bigelow Vitamin Boost Toner.


Can you say love?

Click it to hear the rave!

With a $12 price tag and a larger size bottle than my normal Shu Uemura DepSea Water Facial Mist I can so get on board the cheap train to enjoy myself a bottle of C.O. Bigelow Vitamin Boost Toner. Likey!

With promises to perk up my tired, dull looking skin and replenish it with nutrients I imagine this could get the typical skin care junkie excited. It’s formulated with a Healthy Skin Complex, a blend of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to keep my skin looking healthy, strong, and youthful supposedly. That’s a whole lot of promise but the real deal is that it’s cheap and it performs pretty great at toning my skin, refreshing it, and making it ready for my facial moisturizer and really that’s about all I need. Now if by chance it also gives me a youthful appearance and is packing my skin full of healthy goodness I won’t complain but I promise I’m an easy going sort that will be just as happy if it simply tones my face, which in fact it does.

It’s 6.3oz in size and $12 bucks ummm hello cheap! My typical bottle of Shu Uemura Depsea Water Facial Mist in Mint is 5oz in size and $24. See? Cheap is good. It feels the same on my skin as Shu’s, it does the same thing in making my skin moist and dewy, and it even has a better nozzle for a finer spray of mist than my Shu. I’m feeling that happy glow of saving myself $12 bucks here people. The mist is subtly scented with a crisp, floral, slightly fruity smell. It’s quite difficult to describe the scent but it’s almost like a very green kiwi.


Fact of the matter is C.O. Bigelow Vitamin Boost Toner is cheap, refreshing, and gives my skin a nice wake up call all while keeping it fresh, dewy, and easing the way for my moisturizer.

If you’re not willing to dish $24 or more dollars on toner I’d say check it out. It’s Muse Approved for purchase and well worth your dollar. It’s available now from Bath and Body Works and the kicker is all of C.O. Bigelow products are buy two get two free right now so hurry on over and snag yourself some.

Anyone try?

Which facial mists do you enjoy using?

Tell the Muse!

Beauty News: 50 Cent Launches Cosmetic Line For Men

Is the economy so bad that 50 Cent isn’t doing so well in the record industry? Shrug. Who knows could be but whatever the case is 50 Cent decided that he has a calling, a calling that includes cosmetics for men.


Jump it for the news!

The Cut reports that 50 Cent is launching his own line of cosmetics for men. His line will include moisturizers as well as health supplements which supposedly he feels will “butch” the line up. Umm ok….I dunno if supplements make it any less girly but we still love you 50 (and maybe said supplements will make a man more regular)! And hey if Diddy can do perfume who says you can’t go around creating manly man eye cream!

Go on with your bad self 50!
