I do not understand this product. I've been using it for 2 weeks now, albeit not every day. I can't figure out what it is supposed to be doing for me. It's not a cleanser, not a moisturizer. And my skin doesn't look any different.

I love this toner! This is one of the few alcohol-free toners out there. It does a great job of removing anything your cleanser left behind while restoring moisture to the skin. It feels so refreshing every time I use it. The scent is amazing too. I wish it came in a pump bottle, but that's a minor complaint. I will definitely repurchase when I run out.

Love everything about this product. The smell, the texture, the effect. Very spa-like experience. I use this once a day, either day or night depending on how my skin feels. Love the calming smell. Softens skin and prepares for moisturizer. Only thing im not loving is the packaging. Troublesome lid.

It is an ok product to use. Does tone the skin without irritating or drying out. What I totally dislike is the smell: very herby, reminding of meds. Simply can't get over it.

I generally have pretty good luck with Clarins products and this toner is another solid item I use from them. It's not HG or anything, but it's a good alcohol free toner that doesn't leave your face sticky. It comes in a plastic bottle with a white cap and the liquid comes out of a little hole in the top. I've never had a problem with the product coming out too fast or too much, I just shake the bottle a couple of times onto a cotton pad and it dispenses the perfect amount. It smells nice, too, a lovely herbal chamomile.

I only use it for one thing, which is to tone my skin in the morning after I "wash" my face with tap water. I don't use it at night to tone because I use an aha/bha exfoliating pad or some sort of retin-a. I like it because my skin feels refreshed and replenished after I finish wiping it with the toner-soaked cotton pad. It also has a little lactic acid in the ingredients, which I like because my skin is oily to normal and I love anything that exfoliates. Overall, a nice, solid product from Clarins that does the job I want it to. It's reasonably priced and you can always buy the larger sized bottles when the counter has them. I usually have one back-up.

Smells nice

Just didn't suit my skin. I feel it stripped too much off my dehydrated skin. I think I am better off using the one for sensitive skin. I always get these with GWP. I have about 3 bottles now!!!

I decided to buy this one because I love Clarins a lot, plus chamomile tea always helped with redness and general irritation on my face. However, this irritated my skin quite a lot. It didn't make me break out, but it definitely made my skin red. Wouldn't buy again because of it, but than again, maybe it could work for normal skin, definitely not for dry and/or sensitive.

I've tried this many times over the years and while I've never had a problem with it, I've never entirely fallen in love with it either. I think what's tipped the scales in its favour for me this time is using it in conjunction with the cleansing milk for normal/dry skin. The two together make my skin feel normal and hydrated. I'm happy to have found a place for this in my skincare routine because I've always loved the refreshing cologne-like fragrance.

Thanks to my fellow MUA reviewers I purchased this toner when my local stores ran out of my trusty Caudalie toner. You have not led me wrong! This toner does what it promises and I am pleased with it.

This alcohol-free toner claims to soothe, moisturize, and restore the natural pH balance to skin. I think it delivers on those claims (except I can't be sure for the natural pH thing since I'm no scientist) and it does not clog pores. I either swipe it all over my face on a cotton, or I shake a little into the palms of my hands and pat directly onto my face. Works nicely both ways. It is thicker than water, and doesn't leave behind a sticky feeling. Leaves skin feeling comfortable and nourished, and preps the skin to absorb moisturizer better. The only minor thing I can critique about this lotion is the scent - it has a floral citronella smell to it. It is not unbearable, but its not my favorite scent either. I've gotten used to it over time so its really not that bad.

The packaging is pretty straight forward and simple, nothing to write home about. It dispenses product ok. A smaller spout might give more control when pouring it.

Overall, very satisfied with its performance. Its a no-fuss workhorse of a product. Will definitely repurchase.
