Confession: I never believed in toners for skincare. Anyone who reads this blog can see I am obsessed with masks which are very big in the Asian culture. Toners are something different. I do not wear much makeup and I never thought a toner was a step I needed. But then I read Seed to Serum’s blog where she raves about the Yuli Panacea Elixir and buys them bottles at a time . Then I saw an article written on No More Dirty Looks about Natural Toners You Might Want To Try and I was amazed at how many people in the comments also loved Yuli elixirs. Through conversation with Megan of Seed to Serum blog, I decided to get a sample of the Panacea Elixir.
Panacea means “cure all” and that is exactly what this does, it balances combination skin, decongests and clarifies blemish prone skin, and hydrates using chiral Aloe Vera, Cucumber, Lavender, Watercress, Rose, Rosemary and a host of other pure ingredients. YULI is truly revolutionary with how they formulate their products which are both pure and without chemical laden synthetics but also different and advanced. It is no wonder other companies, even larger ones who have been around longer are taking their ‘cues’ from this niche brand.
I’ve only used it twice, counting this morning and so far I love it. It is very gentle but immediately you can tell there is something that makes your skin really feel good. When you think of an elixir, you think of a magical tonic and this is nothing short of that. It felt like a product that I didn’t realize I needed to make my skin look and feel so much better. My skin is instantly refreshed and I can tell that it boosts hydration. My skin also seems to look more refined especially larger pores which seem to be shrinking. The scent is very light, but you can smell that this is very fresh and made from natural ingredients. I will review this again after I finish this and get the full size.
