Organic green tea & cucumber toner
One of our favourite ways to reduce waste and plastic consumption as well as steer towards a cleaner, toxin-free beauty regime is to make homemade masks, toners and oils. A favourite is this organic green tea and cucumber toner that we like to apply using our reusable bamboo facial rounds.

Green tea is a powerful yet gentle beauty ingredient full of antioxidants and nutrients for the skin. Commonly used as a main ingredient in Japanese and Korean beauty products and routines. Apple cider vinegar lightly exfoliates, cleans and tones the pores and offers antibacterial, anti wrinkle benefits. Cucumber is very gentle, hydrating and nourishing for the skin. The perfect combination for a glowy and hydrated complexion this winter.

Making the switch to our reusable bamboo facial rounds reduces waste, is better for skin and overtime saves you money.

Homemade organic green tea & cucumber toner


  • 1/2 cup of organic green tea cooled (we love getting loose leaf teas from the source bulk foods)
  • 1/2 cup of organic cucumber peeled and chopped
  • 2 tbsp braggs organic apple cider vinegar
  • Other optional add-ins depending on your skin type are - tea tree, honey, rose water, chamomile essential oil and eucalyptus


Add all ingredients into a nutribullet or blender and blend for 10-20 seconds. Pour through a sieve into a pyrex jug. Pour liquid into your favourite recycled glass jar or bottle. Store in the fridge and after cleansing and before moisturising pat this over your face and neck using one of our reusable bamboo facial rounds and let it sit to dry before massaging in your favourite facial oil. We love organic rosehip.
