Fab India Tea Tree Toner Vs Lotus Basiltone Toner
My skin is oily and pimple prone. I started using Lotus Basiltone toner 1st because it is especially for skin type combination to oily skin. I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t find any cons in it as it came out to be nice but a rather average toner for me and I was quite happy with the product.
Then I heard so many WiseShe readers like Mitra, Anamika raving about Fab India Tea Tree toner for oily skin, so I thought to give it a try as well for who knows it might come out to be better for me!!
So here goes my comparison of the two toners-
|Fab India tea Tree skin Toner||Lotus Herbal Basiltone
Clarifying and Balancing toner
|Product Claims||An alcohol free skin toner with tea tree oil that controls sebum and clears blemishes.
|BasilTone is a blend of Cucumber extracts and Basil Leaf extracts that removes make-up residue, pollution or excess oils. Restores natural pH balance of combination or oily skin. Helps tightens skin pores.|
|Herbal product||Herbal product|
|Price||Rs 125/- for 200 ml||Rs 185/- for 100 ml|
|Ingredients||Water, Okra Extract, Neem Leaf Extract, Turmeric Extract, Propylene Glycol, Tea Tree oil and Salicylic Acid||Cucumber Extracts, Basil Leaf Extracts|
|Alcohol content||Claims to be alcohol free||No claims as such|
|Suitable for||Oily skin||Combination skin to Oily skin|
|Skin feelings after application||Skin feels cool-cool, soft and hydrated & oil-free.
No irritation on skin.
|Skin feels hydrated, oil-free but a bit stretchy and sweky tight as well.
No irritation on skin.
|Packaging||Comes in a plastic cylindrical bottle with flip open cap||Comes in a spray bottle so application is easier.|
|Fragrance||Strong essence of Neem and Tea Tree oil||Mild smell of cucumber|
|Experience with the Toner||Tea Tree oil is an ingredient specially for oily skin, it keeps oil away from skin for 2-3 hours and controls acne from occurring but didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t help in removing blemishes. It also tightens up the skin pores. It doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t dry out the skin hence can suit dry skin as well.||The best part is, it comes in a spray bottle. No need to cotton, just spray on face and dab.|
|Broken Promise (for me)||Claimed to clear blemishes but didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t cleared blemishes as such!||Claimed to be good for oily skin but skin did become oily after an hour.|
|Color||Actually it was not needed in the comparison but it is a personal choice..Â Tea tree toner is light pista green in color.||Basiltone is parrot green in color.|
|My preference||1st preference||2nd preference|
What will be my choice
Both the toners are formulated for oily skin (with the addition that Basiltone is for combi skin too) but I feel due to the presence of salicylic acid (which controls acne) in Fab India Tea Tree toner, is more suitable for oily skin in summers. Moreover its price is less with more efficiency and more quality. The Ã¢â‚¬Å“sprayÃ¢â‚¬Â factor of Basiltone attracts me towards it but I may still go for Fab India Tea Tree toner personally.
