    I have tried Fab India’s Tea Tree toner. It was good. I have recently started using Oriflame’s Optimals Purifying toner and trust me…this is amazing. I even suggested one of my friend to try it and she too was amazed. It helps remove all impurities, mattifies and helps to close and tighten pores. Give it a try!
