Love this in combination with the FTE! My skin is glowing, smooth, and acne marks are starting to fade!
I don't know what possessed me to buy this, but I had to stop using it on my face due to a few breakouts (which are rare, even though my skin is oily). So I didn't want to throw it out since it is obscenely expensive ($70) so I decided to use it on my chest and back, which are less sensitive but extremely prone to breakouts, particularly blackheads and more than the occasional cystic acne. Every time I've used it, the cotton pad looks clean. Which is puzzling, because when I use anything else, the cotton pad is either pale brown or pale grey from sebum, dry skin, dirt, etc.
This is the pricest toner I've purchased but this is also my favorite. I used up a deluxe sample size that came with SKII facial treatment essence set I purchase a while ago in a period of time when my skin to super sensitive to everything. This is one of the few skincare things that did not aggrevate my skin at that time. Does not contain fragrance, which is one of the very important factors when buying skincare for me because of my sensitive skin.
Even though it contains Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid & Malic Acid, it still did not aggrevate my skin. The acid content is probably sufficiently low, gives a mild exfoliation without being too harsh. My skin broke out in eczema at the slightest thing a few times a month. That was when my neighbourhood was undergoing upgrading and my house is super dusty for months. By the 5th month or so, my skin and even my scalp is super sensitive.
I loved SKII clear lotion & treatment essence so much because I felt they strengthen my skin, made them less sensitive. The acids in the toner prepares my skin for the treatment essence's better absorption. It also contains some Saccharomycopsis Ferment Filtrate, Glycerin & Sodium Hyaluronate. Great right!
I have been using this toner lotion on and off for 8 years and I like it.
After wiping my face with this toner, my skin feels moist.
I never have this moist feeling from using other toners.
I think it removes dirt and dead skin cell because I can see light brown mark on the cotton pad.
However, the price is pretty expensive for a toner.
i like this toner. i really feel my skin extra clean after applying this toner. it works well with the FTE. many people dont use this clear lotion and jump straight to FTE after cleaner. well i find this product prepares my skin, ready for FTE and stempower.
Just a standard toner, not an impressive one. There are a lot of better and cheaper toner than this one. It balances my combination skin, but does nothing more than it.
I super love this product! it's not only prepare your skin for facial treatment essence, but also clean your face from your make up residu ( sometimes not clean enough, even you already using facial wash). I feel fresh everytime i use this! best tonner!
Overall this product is a must have for my skincare routine.
The price of this item was steep to begin with but now that it is $10 dollars more expensive as SKII has risen it's prices, I am kind of unsure about how I feel about this item. The $10 price increase was ridiculous because nothing in the beauty world has ever increased in price that much or at all really.
Despite the price increase, overall this product was amazing for my skin. It is the only toner like item that really got rid of all the impurities on my skin while moisturizing it at the same time. I felt like it was THE product that got rid of all my blemishes and made my skin flawless. If money is not a problem for you, get it.

The first few times I used this my skin felt tingly but I pushed on and now my skin is completely fine with it. Although the packaging says to use it everyday, I use it twice a week because it can be really drying as it contains an AHA so it doubles as an exfoliant. I do like that it has Salicylic Acid in there though because it helps keep my skin smooth, but twice a week is plenty. Also be careful not to use it around the eye area as it is too harsh for the delicate skin around your eyes.
I have yet to find a toner that is gentle and nondrying for me that to use on a daily basis that doesn't make my sensitive skin react but I'll stick with this for the time being because it does a good job exfoliating without using plastic micro-beads which I try and avoid.
This product works great when used with the Treatment Essence. I put this clear lotion on first right after washing and patting the skin dry. Then I put the Treatment Essence on. I seriously have the most sensitive and fickle skin - it's dry one minute, then super oily the next, acne-prone and sensitive on top of that. Many products completely aggravate one or more of my skin's ailment's but this product seems to hydrate and calm down my skin. I love that it is practically fragrance-free as well because fragrance is another thing that my skin cannot tolerate.
