I have been using this for about a year. I know it doesn't have skin beneficial ingredients but the big factor for me is it doesn't contain alcohol. I like using a toner to make sure my face is fully clean and this toner works for me. It does have glycerin and ingredients to help dry skin. I will continue to buy it.
This toner doesn't do anything for me, good or bad. I have combination skin. Probably if you had dry skin, this would be an excellent toner. It's a very mild. My skin doesn't feel much different after using it. I often forget to use it, but I want to use it up.
It has almond oil and Nivea's "Hydra IQ" to moisturize. The back of the bottle says it doesn't contain any "skin drying alcohols", and that is true, but it cannot claim to be alcohol-free, because it has panthenol in it. Panthenol is an alcohol that hydrates skin. It does not dry my skin or make it feel tight at all.
The bottle is like other Nivea toners, it squirts out too much product at once. It's very hard to control.
