Lush describe each of their toner tabs as 'a blend of oils for both mind and skin, skillfully presented in an easy to use tab.' The simplicity of these tablets are what I love the most about them - with a few simple ingredients they can transform your complexion and make you feel like a million dollars. Not bad for something that costs a little over £2.
Moon And Sun is a toner tab that has spent a good part of the last two years hidden beneath the endless supply of Lush soaps I have collected. When I pulled it out, it was a little powdery and the pieces of dried lavender that decorated the surface, were rather faded. However, the gorgeous musky floral fragrance from both the lavender and neroli oil, were very much present.
To use one of these toner tabs is very simple. Simply fill a medium-sized bowl with hot water, submerge your face and the bowl beneath a towel or sheet and drop the toner tab into the water. Lush state that once the tab has fully dissolved, you should remove the towel and pat your face dry. However, to get a full detox, I would recommend that you stay underneath the towel for a good five minutes. What is useful, is that the leftover water can be stored in the fridge for up to seven days after it's been used - using this to spritz your face if your skin needs that bit of extra refreshment throughout the week.
This particular toner tab has a rather lovely and equally soothing fresh lavender aroma that expands when the tab is dissolved in water and offers you a relaxing experience. The addition of neroli oil gives Moon And Sun an uplifting and invigorating element that improves your mood and leaves you refreshed in body and mind. Without all of the harmful ingredients that other non-Lush steamers can contain, the toner tab is able to steam your face without damaging the skin or drying out the pores - leaving a gentle aroma that stays with you for a while after use.
Priced at £2.50, this toner tab is a little on the expensive side -on par with Dream Steam. This is perhaps the only reason I wouldn't invest in this product regularly. While it does leave your complexion dirt free and is great at hydrating weathered skin, the best result for me is seeing the colour that it brings back into my tired face. Some of my colleagues at work commented on how radiant my skin was the day after I had used one of these and I was amazed that the results were so noticeable.
Unfortunately, this along with many other of Lush's toner tabs are currently unavailable both online and in store as part of their permanent range. If Lush were to bring this back as a regular item, I would definitely buy this again but only to use it once a month to justify the expense. Aside from the price, there's not anything bad I can really say about this miracle tab.
