Hear what influencers have to say:
Atoi Skincare Review Part 1: . . RITUAL. . . That is the word that comes to mind when I think of @atoiskincare. This beautiful brand arrived at my doorstep in the most exquisite packaging. There was a gold-lined letter with my name on it, and it described how to use each of the products they sent. It was tailor made for me, like a handmade ritual, and I was eager to follow along. . . CLEANSE . Atoi has redefined cleansing for me. Admittedly, I was NOT a fan of cleansing. It's always last on my list of products to buy and it's always a step I'm happy to skip in my routine. But Atoi's cleansing ritual was a 3 step process and I was intrigued to say the least. . . They thoughtfully included a bottle of distilled water and a beautifully wrapped piece of cotton for me, along with their Nourishing Milk*. When I saw the ingredients for the nourishing milk, I was skeptical. It had paraffinum liquid, and silicones, two ingredients I don't usually want in a cleanser. But when I felt the texture on my skin, I couldn't refuse. The instructions were to apply a teaspoon amount to the face and neck and gently stroke upwards. Once finished, I would dampen a strip of cotton with distilled water and gently remove the cleanser. . . When I tell you that this product has changed my view of cleansing, I do not say it lightly! Unlike most harsh American cleansers, Atoi's method of using a lotion milk to wipe away the stress and dirt of the day really resonates with me. It's so gentle, so intentional, and so beautifully different to how most brands approach cleansing. Not only does my skin feel amazing afterwards, but it also feels amazing DURING the cleansing ritual which is definitely a first. . . TONE . Atoi's Nourishing Toner* is a drink of cool water on a hot day. It contains wheat germ, carrot, honey, rose, and horse chesnut extracts to soothe and hydrate. The texture is watery and runny, but it allows the product to absorb deeply into the skin. It feels so decadent and nourishing to apply, almost like an invisible shield that shrinks pores and allows other products to penetrate better. I am smitten. . . Continued in comments...
So last week I reviewed @atoiskincare's Nourishing Milk and Nourishing Toner. Tonight I wanted to talk about their moisturizers! . . MOISTURIZE . Atoi's Nourishing Day Cream* is a texture lover's dream. It is the smoothest, creamiest, most hydrating product I've put on my face in ages and it layers BEAUTIFULLY with other skincare! 🙆🏻❤ I was worried that the dimethicone would cause pilling but its wayyy down in the ingredient list and has played beautifully with my other products so far! With carrot root extract, meadowfoam seed oil, and aloe, this is extremely moisturizing. It even layers well under makeup, and it makes my skin feel like a baby's! . . Atoi also kindly sent some samples of their nourishing eye cream and night cream. I can't get enough of them! The eye cream has a similar texture to their day cream, fluffy and thick, and never pills. I've noticed an increase in hydration and decrease in my fine lines. The night cream is slightly denser than their day cream but equally beautiful! I adore this formula, and am heartbroken that I've almost used both samples up! They actually last a really long time (a little goes a long way - which makes them a better deal) but I just couldn't help but reapply constantly. 😂 They feel like a cool drink of water on my parched skin. . . I usually use products from different brands in my am/pm routines because I can't find what I need all in one line. Atoi proved me wrong again. I find myself creating a new ritual these days soley with their skincare! These products are simply stunning, and when used together, provide a self care experience like nothing else! I honestly am becoming a bit brand loyal. 😇 . . The only downside I could possibly see of the line is the inclusion of coloring and fragrance. I've had no reactions to the fragrance myself (It's light and very pleasant) but if you're sensitive to it, that's something to be aware of. All in all, I can't speak highly enough of the Atoi brand - their ethos, their team, and their products are just remarkable. There is a thoughtfulness and elegance to the brand that I don't often find. Continued in comments...
🌼@atoiskincare Clarifying Milk 🌼 This is a gentle cleanser and decongestant for pores. It claims to cleanse pores, soothe, reduce inflammation, balance sebum production and heal acne-prone skin. It contains linden flower (from France- soothes and decongests skin), squalane, beeswax and soybean oil. It has medium thickness texture, creamy consistency, is white in color and is mildly scented. Milk glides on easily and feels very good on the skin, creamy and soothing. To apply it, take a generous amount of it and gently spread it on the skin of the face and neck in upward strokes and remove it with a wet cotton pad or baby washcloth. I have been using cotton pads saturated in distilled water provided by the brand, regular washcloths and top water. All mentioned methods work well for me but the cotton pad takes long time. It leaves skin amazingly soft, like baby skin soft. My skin feels hydrated and soothed instantly. It looks clean and fresh with nice glowing effect. Pores seem to be smaller and all redness faded, leaving an even complexion.🌼🌼🌼 Overall, great gentle cleanser with nothing but positive results and amazing performance. #skincare #skinpamper #atoi #beauty #beautyproduct #beautystagram #face #beautygram #beautyjunkie #beautyblog #instaskincare #instabeauty #skin #fallinlovewithyourskin #skincareaddict #skintreatment #skincaretips #clarifying #atoiskincare #hydrating #moisturizing
@atoiskincare Clarifying Toner This brand is a fruit of very hard work of mother and daughter living in Montreal with passion, commitment and determination to find formulas that produce immediate and positive results. Their original formula was born from the finest European ingredients and modeled after the French skin care system that is manageable in even the most hectic lifestyle..❤On the personal note I love their customer service and the way a potential customer is treated by this brand. Starting from the knowledgeable personnel, very personal approach to the beautiful letter sent to me by brand. Thank you so much for making me feel valued and appreciated, it’s rare these days.. ▫Now to the product in hand - .. ▫️Designed for normal and oily skin, it provides soothing and calming properties, reduces inflammation, fights acne and tightens pores.. Contains burdock root (from france - fights bacteria, soothes and calms, blackberry (from france - protects, improves elasticity, calms), rosemary (from france - protects, decongests, relaxes and stimulates the skin) and witch hazel (from france - tightens, heals, and calms) It has a watery formula, clear in color and it has a mild, floral scent, very pleasant. Feels slightly cooling during application and pleasant. Absorbs instantly without leaving any film. There is no irritation or over drying which is very important with my combination skin type-- where my t-zone is oily but other parts of the skin are dry, forming flaky skin. Overall, my skin loves this toner, it has a very soothing effect on my skin keeping it even toned. I do not have a big problem with acne except from occasional few pimples due to hormonal changes but they seem to heal much faster after using this toner and outbursts are more rare and farther apart. Skin seems to be plumper and more elastic, softer and smoother after each use. Pores look smaller and fine lines less visible. I would recommend it to any skin type that has acne problems and is looking for something that is non drying and delivering anti-aging results. #atoiskincare #atoi #toner #balancing #antiaging #calming #soothing #skinrepair #skincareaddict #frenchskincare #beauty
With the intent to combine complicated #frenchskincare routine into steps that were manageable in even the most hectic lifestyle, Tova Hanifin, the founder of #atoiskincare, worked with chemist to create skincare products that will benefit the skin. The ÀTOI Clarifying Milk aims to gently clear and decongest the pores, soothe the skin, reduce inflammation, balance oils, and heal acne prone skin. It contains linden flower to soothe and decongest the skin. This cleanser is milky and light. Applies like a moisturizer and doesn't lather when mixed with water. It's a gentle cleanser that was able to cleanse my skin without making it feel tacky or leaving the feeling of a thin film. It was able to remove light makeup and sunscreen. However, when used as a pm cleanser, I had to cleanse my eyes thrice to remove my longwearing liner. I use this mostly in the morning because I like that it doesn't completely strip my skin. I had a few blemishes on my skin and even though this didn't eliminate them, it help soothe my skin and helped reduce inflammation. The ÀTOI Clarifying Toner aims to calm inflammation, fight acne causing bacteria, and tighten pores without drying the skin. It can also be effective spot treatment for breakouts because of its ingredients like burdock root, blackberry, rosemary, and witch hazel. This is very watery and smells like an astringent. It was able to remove excess dirt on my face and neck that wasn't cleansed by the cleanser. I like that this doesn't feel heavy. I used this both day and night for a month and it was able to keep my face hydrated for half a day. For warmer weather, I would need to support this with more hydrating products to keep the oil at bay. Unfortunately, I didn't see this as something that would treat my blemishes but it didd help control them. #skinwhimsreview Atoi Skincare Clarifying Milk and Clarifying Toner These products were provided by @atoiskincare for review.

Àtoi Skincare has been a skincare company that has really looked out for me. I’ve Skyped with Tova, the founder, twice! We talked about my skin, the issues I face with it, and the lifestyle factors that could be causing skin issues: everything from harsh shampoos to my love of tomatoes! Tova and Angie sent me cleansers and toners from their Soothing and Nourishing lines and they are luxe! They are gentle, so I reach to them when my face needs something soft, like right after a workout. If I don’t wash my face right after working out, it’s breakout town. But I don’t want to dry my face out either. So these are just the cleansers for the job! They have a creamy and silky consistency—they are called “milk” for good reason! The Soothing milk has a neutral smell, but the Nourishing milk smells like rose! Right after cleansing, I apply the corresponding toner by patting it in with my palms. Gosh, they’re just really nice. They don’t sting my skin, but they’re very effective. My skin behaves perfectly after using them! Thank you so much, Tova, for your time, kindness, and advice! I love using these products! . . . #atoiskincare @atoiskincare #cleansers #toners #workoutskincare #skincareroutine #skincareworkout #skincareblog #gifted #skincareobsessed #skincareaddict
