I simply LOVE this toner! It's dirt cheap (around $6 for a large bottle at Target) and works AMAZINGLY! I have noticed a HUGE difference in my oily, large pores. My skin is smoother and more vibrant and my pores are smaller too! It has a very soothing feel and smell - not an overly tight feeling and alcohol-y odor like a lot of toners. This product is formulated with natural willow bark. You can't beat the price for the quality! I use this every morning after I cleanse my face and before my moisturizer and makeup; I also use it every night after cleansing and before serum and moisturizer. I highly recommend this product for ALL skin types. It's not overly drying, and it gently removes excess sebum but doesn't harshly strip away natural oils. It truly seems to be the perfect toner!
This is the only toner I have used that hasn't dried my skin out severely or made it red and rashy. I am falling in love with this line! I hadn't even heard of it until I started working at Target two years ago (no longer there). I adore this stuff! It removes any leftover oil and dirt, and I can also see a difference in the size of my pores. Wonderful product!
This was an OK product for me. I have sometimes acne prone skin, and I felt this really didn't do anything for me in that sense. It did removed left over oils, dirt and makeup after cleansing, but in terms of acne prevention, didn't see a difference. I also didn't really like the smell and found the packaging to always dispense too much product.
I have been looking for a simple, non-stinky toner that would simply take off any make up I had missed while washing my face off.
I found this at target and it was less than $4. It doesn't smell bad at all. It takes off left over make up. Doesn't have fumes that sting eyes. Doesn't irritate or dry out my skin. So far it's wonderful. I haven't had any irritations or break outs. I will update after a few weeks.
My only problem with this so far is the packing. It's really simple, but it seems somewhat unsanitary. When I bought it, there was no seal and I was able to open it right up in the store.
I tried this along with the other anti-blemish products and found that none of it works for me.
When I used this after I used the foam cleaner like it instructed and found that neither together removed all the stuff off my face. Also, caused more acne for me in less than a week.
Will not buy again.
I bought this at Target and figured I would try it, even though my Witch Hazel does a fantastic job of keeping my blemishes at bay. This stuff really works, it doesn't dry out my skin and doesn't make it red at all, and most importantly, no blemishes! My skin feels nice and soft and moisturized after using it, I like it, I might repurchase this instead if I run out of Witch Hazel any time soon.
I love Boots Expert Anti-Blemish serum, and I'm on my third bottle now. So, I think the toner must be good, too. And I'm telling you that I really love it. It's gentle but effective. It doesn't contain the acne medication so that it doesn't dry my skin out like those medicated toner does. In fact, my skin feels refreshing and moisturized. The price is good and the bottle is big. I'll definitely repurchase it. So far, I'm really impressed with the Boots Expert Anti-Blemish line. I'll go try out the other products.
I really wanted to love this range :(
This stuff stank of alcohol and turned my face bright red. The whole range was bad news for my skin but this was the main culprit - I stopped using it and my skin lost the redness in 3-4 days. Won't repurchase.
I know they say you don't need a toner and to stay away from any toners with alcohol in, BUT I felt I needed the whole arsenal of spot fighting products to deal with my crappy skin and I have been seriously impressed with the results. This £2.99 amber coloured liquid toner comes in plain but functional packaging with a lovely, clean, almost herbal smell to it. The most important thing you need to know is that it WORKS! I'm 33 and have battled for more than a year with hideous, lumpy, red, itchy spots on my jawline which nothing has worked on until now. Two days ago they were as described above; today I don't even feel that they're there (and you know you can feel when you've got just one spot, let alone loads) and the redness and size of them has gone right down. I'll update in 2 weeks by which time I hope to be spot-free. I use this with Boots Expert Anti-Blemish Foaming Cleanser, the anti-blemish serum and the anti-blemish concealer duo lotion (please see my reviews for these).
Better late than never! It's been over a month now since I started using this entire range and my skin has never looked so clear. Will definitely continue using this range and I'm going to try the Boots Expert Anti Redness Serum or Bio Oil aswell.
