Skinfood Platinum Grape Cell Toner–Review

Skinfood Platinum Grape Cell Toner–Review

Hello again, everyone!

I tried out yet another (I know, I know) Skinfood product: the Platinum Grape Cell Toner. As with most of my goodies, it came as a sample in another order (I love samples!!) so I wanted to give it a try. It seems that most toners are hit or miss with me for some reason. I’m in love with Murad’s Hydrating Toner, but thought Etude House’s Pure Water Baobab Toner was just average. So let’s see how this one fared!

Apparently these are made from some of France’s fanciest grapes. πŸ˜‰ Skinfood claims that these grape cells help to regenerate skin cells and this, in turn, provides youthful, firm skin. When I read the name, I thought “platinum” meant “the best”. You know, like gold status on your credit card is nice, but platinum is the best. Boy was I wrong. There’s actually little bits of platinum flecks in the toner! There’s not any in my sample, but the full size bottle includes these magical little flecks. Besides being a pretty addition to the product, platinum is also boasted to be one of the “purest and rarest metals in the world”. It has antioxidant effects which ensure it’s included in many cosmetic products, as well as many others (Skinfood and Amazon say “food, medical, cosmetics, etc”.)

Of course, the toner step comes right after the cleansing and I, as per usual, used this at night. It’s a little thicker than the typical toner and I used my fingers to apply. It applies smoothly and evenly. It is ever so slightly sticky when applied, but that dissipates quickly. The scent is very light and pleasant. It doesn’t smell like grapes, but just a hint of sweetness.

As for the effects? I didn’t see a huge difference in “youthfulness” or firmness. I did like the feel of the toner, though, and the scent was very nice. I’m not sure if long term use (or more aging on my part) would yield more dramatic results, but the fact that I liked the feel and scent had me finishing off my sample happily.

I give Skinfood’s Platinum Grape Cell TonerΒ 2.5 pomegranates. I feel it was just average and not something I would seek out to buy a full size of, plus the price of the full size seems a little steep considering I wasn’t wowed. I guess that’s the toner pickyness talking, but I’ll be staying a true fan of my Murad toner for now, I suppose. πŸ˜‰

      1. Oh no – I think it’s good practice to be honest, plus it can give great feedback to the company as they can’t make their products better unless they get constructive feedback too πŸ˜‰ Honest reviews are the best reviews – good or bad!! XXXXX

      2. I sometimes do bad reviews if my initial impressions prompt me to think that the product is horrible, but I rarely do in-depth long term testing bad reviews, because I won’t stay with a product for long term. My in-depth reviews are over a month in testing and using them on my skin, so I can best provide a good analysis on the product.
