This is a new product on the block that is hitting the Indian Market. The brand ” Dr. Olen Gin” with the caption “Magic dead sea minerals” is a line of beauty products from Israel, which has the Dead Sea minerals as their prime ingredient. We all have heard a lot about the Dead Sea and how its water which is rich in mineral salts is effective for various types of skin problems and for the general well being of the skin. Here, I am reviewing their toner which is named as “Magic mineral facial toner” which contains 250 ml of product.

The look and texture: This toner is a sea blue hued transparent liquid which very much resembles the color of sea water. The very look of it is fresh and invigorating. Its light and non sticky and does not leave any film or layer on the skin.
The aroma: It has a soothing and pleasant aroma which has a calming effect on the mind 🙂 . It smells awesome, I cannot describe it exactly but its fresh, sensual and energizing.

How effective it is: I have been using it for the last one month. As per the claims, it does soften and soothe the skin 🙂 moisturizes and moderate the pH levels. I have combination – oily skin, it does keep the oiliness at bay and also keeps the pores clean. Also the skin looks more even and toned. Its not drying and keeps the skin supple and soft. I am impressed by the ingredient list, it has green tea, allantoin, salicylic acid which are all known for their beneficial effects on skin. It does contain alcohol, but its not drying and invasive on skin. I did not expect it to contain alcohol, realized it only when I saw the ingredient list.
A very good toner which is true to its claims. I use it twice a day, morning and evening avoiding the eye area, as per the instructions on the bottle.
