My sister and I have been using this as our toner for years, and it's been quite effective for the both of us who use different cleansers.
It's pricing could be a little cheaper, but I'd say it's fair enough considering how much we use. I think the key ingredient that makes me come back to this product time and again is the aloe and algae extract, which are products that really help with your skin; especially if your acne-prone.
And when I've finished wiping myself with a cotton ball, I can see how much dirt has been accumulated in my skin. (yuck!) It's definitely doing it's job, so I'll likely keep to it in my daily face regime.
i've been using this toner for months and months now, and have gone through at least two or three bottles. i've never really sampled a different toner, so that's truthfully why i stick with this one. it does make my skin feel tighter, smoother, cleaner and while i don't actually notice if it treats my skin (since i never stop using it) it does work well to remove excess oils and makeup off of my face. it may have helped with blackheads, actually, now that i think about it.
I wish I could have given this toner 5/5. I had read a whole bunch of great reviews but I used it for 5 days and did exactly what was directed on the bottle and all of the sudden, on the 6th day, my skin just exploded. Perhaps I'm just allergic to one of the ingredients, I really have no idea but I broke out like I've never done before all along my chin area. I can tell you for sure that it was the toner since it was the only new product I tried that week but I am baffled as to what would have caused such a reaction. Anyway, it still may work for you but for whatever reason, this stuff hates my skin. As everyone is different, I suppose you have to try it to see if it's compatible with your skintype but I absolutely will never buy this again. (Now what to do with the rest of the brand new bottle I just bought! xD)
I will never regret the day when I tried out this product!!! I can feel how it cleans my skin deeply and properly.
A multi-tasking product , very gentle on the skin ..I have used it for years for a LIST of things :
1-I keep it in the fridge , and use when I am out in the hot , humid days in the summer to wipe my face from dirt & sweat as I usually don't wear foundations .
2- I have combo skin so I don't usually use it as a toner on my face but it's perfect for the neck , and oily areas on the face sometimes .
3- This may seem weird ; I add 70% alcohol to it and shake it well and keep it as on -the -spot make up brush cleanser and it works GREAT to sanitise and clean them ...and it's dirt cheap and easier to get compared to any other brush cleanser you buy or DIY at home .
4- I keep it im my handbag and use it as an emergency hand cleaner sometimes if I can't wash them for some reason .
Other than that you can use it as toner of course ..It may have a strong smell , but it's not bad it's only Eucalyptus , Menthol , Castor oil and Comphor which re all natural and great for the skin . continued >>
I do not use toner on a regular basis on my face, but I do like to have some around. I use it more often on my neck, and strange as it may sound, my ears. I have super oily ears! (To go with my oily scalp and oily eyelids!) I bought this one because it was cheap and I had a coupon to make it even cheaper, and I am glad I tried it.
In my experience, most toners I have tried are too harsh and sting when I use them. This is quite gentle. I don't get any stinging at all with it. It has a very pleasant smell.
It's just a nice toner to have around. I recommend trying it if you are looking for a more gentle toner that is inexpensive.
A staple for me especially during the summer, when my skin has oilier areas and I'm wearing SS that sometimes doesn't seem to completely come off with cleansing.
Caveat: this is so NOT right for truly sensitive skin; it has a ton of alcohol in it. It's a good BHA toner for skin that needs that kind of treatment. And certainly much better for anyone than the regular version, which is mentholated for better irritation. :p
I do like the product and think it does a good job of keeping mild blackheads at bay and removing any post-cleanser residue.
This really does remove all the dirt and makeup left behind by my expensive night time cleanser that I don't want to waste!. Its refreshing and doesn't aggravate my oily sensitive skin and has helped to clear my skin of the spotty flare ups I have been getting. It's so cheap aswell as soon as I have finished my cleanser I will just be using this I can get 10 bottles for the price of my decleor cleanser!.
this seemed to aggravate my acne rather than help it. i started getting all these breakouts on my chin. the more i used this on my chin, the more breakouts I'd get.
I am in love with this product !!! Was using the clean and clear orange cleanser which was doing a pretty good job but still had blackheads on my nose and chin . Bought this when I picked up a new bottle of cleanser and in 3 days my skin is better then it's been in years ! Pores are much smaller and blackheads are diminished quite a bit in a short time ! My skin just feels cleaner , more even and smooth ! Another awesome clean and clear product !
