Paula Begoun is such a hypocrite. I regret ever buying any of her books. She claims that her toner has enough green tea polyphenols(antioxidants); it's a complete lie. The product has to have at least 50% polyphenols to work; you know it has it because the product will be brown.
I emailed her asking to verify the concentration of the green tea and she emailed me saying it's "trade" secrets! I couldn't believe it!
Isn't this the woman who says that you must know how much % is in the active ingredient to see if it works...To make matters worse, I think that I explsed my skin to damage while using this because now I have all of these moles...
She is so horrible....This product does not work..She's just a money-grubbing leach like the cosmetics companies she likes to bash.
It tottaly broke me out. I do like PC products but this one is definatly not for me. I have dry/combination skin, and it made no ddiference. It did sting a little, and like I said, I broke out all over my face which I never do.
This stung my skin. :-( I do have very sensitive skin, but it normally doesnt sting. The stinging went away after 30-60 seconds, but I still would not continue using it for that reason. PC products are just not for me.
I use Paula's entire line for all my skin issues. The cleanser, toner and exfoliants and moisturizers. I will never go back to another line. This toner is lighly moisturizing and makes me feel like I get all the grime off my face. Its just amazing.
Have used this toner for 4 or 5 years along with PC cleanser for dry skin. It feels wonderful on my skin and I like that I'm getting extra doses of antioxidents when I use it and there is no overbearing perfume to contend with.
Edited to say that although this is a very good toner, I haven't used this in the last few years. Would rather buy my products from a regular store than ordering.
The perfect toner for my dry skin. I use it at night after washing my face. Its incredibly gently, but still helps remove left on makeup.
It is a basic toner and I have no idea why I insist on using them except for habit.
The sprayer sucks and it is like a stream that comes at your face at 30 mph instead of a nice mist.
ICK, totally sticky and not good
This is similar to Paula's Choice Final Touch Toner for Normal to Oily/Combination Skin and it's almost as good, even on my normally oily skin, particularly on those odd nights when my skin feels a bit dry. Despite my initial concern that this would clog pores since I'm very acne-prone, this didn't break me out at all!
This feels sticky on my skin. I really like the Normal to Oily version, but the Normal to Dry. It's a simple toner, but I don't feel that it does anything other than leave my face sticky.
I really liked this toner,, it left my skin feeling nice and soft and since I have paid more for toners to do the same things as this, I would most definately re-purchase this cheap and good toner. Packaging is not too fancy, but oh well, it's not what counts really, it's what's inside!
