LOVE LOVE LOVE! I've used all sorts of products and this agrees with my skin the most. Only complaint is the smell because it's been so great to my skin and I've only had the occasional/rare breakout. When I bought my second bottle, it came with a coupon for $1 off!
This toner does shrink pores and clear blackheads. However I cannot use it allover my face because it keeps breaking me out whenever II do. So now I just use a little on my nose(where I had pore problems) and it looks a million times better! I would def repurchase, it just sucks the rest of my face can't handle it.
Alright, so I bought this because of all the rave reviews. I'm sorry to say that they did not live up to the greatness I had expected.
First off, the smell is like rotten raisins. lol. I didn't mind it much when I got use to it. So, it didn't bother me much.
However, when I would tone my face, I would notice that it didn't get all the dirt and grime off my face as my other beloved Mary Kay ones did.
Both my Mary Kay Purifying freshner and Hydrating freshner got 2xs more dirt and grime out of my face than this did.
Soooo, I'll keep this for the morning and I guess for my neck and chest area. Other than that, i won't buy it again.
It didn't live up to all the hype.
It's a no-go for me.
I really wanted to like this product since I use Benzoyl peroxide to control my acne and this didn't dry out my skin. But at the same time it did nothing for my acne. Maybe this would work for someone with mild acne but I am breakout prone and this did not lessen my breakouts.
Great toner!! Cleans and refreshes without drying out your skin!
I have used this for many, many years - Since I was a teen-ager (I'm 42 now...). LOVE it, cleans, refreshes and I LOVE the smell, personally. It's cheap and works. I just squirt some on a cotton round or a cotton ball and swipe over my cleansed skin. Viola! Done :)
A couple of weeks ago I went sailing and got a horrible sunburn. I immediately applied aloe gel which helped I'm sure but the surpise to me was a friend loaned me her witch hazel and convinced me to use it continuously. I did and comparing how I've healed painlessly with using the witch hazel to how painful the process has been in the past has convinced me that this stuff is gold for the skin. Since then I've replaced my Clarins toner with this inexpensive product and have noticed that my pores actually seem to be less noticeable and my skin is less oily. Great stuff!
Try this stuff on razor burn. I use it on my bikini line right after I shave and I NEVER get razor burn. it burns pretty bad, but it will clear up any razor bumps you have and also help prevent it as well.
It cleanses and tones (though I use it as a toner), and it does both jobs quite well. It does smell pretty gross (my bf and I decided it was a mixture of gin and whiskey), but it's cheap, and it does the job without drying out my skin or causing breakouts (and I have super sensitive, dry skin) or any negatives at all. And it lasts forever!
This has made my skin soooooooooooo much less oily! I used it morning and night for a week and hadn't thought about it till today how my face isn't oily anymore like it used to be to the point where i had to blot. It's also cheap, easy to find, and you get a big big bottle for what you're paying. I'm not sure if this works well for breakouts (im still having some) but it seems to have worked for everyone else. I would give this a chance if you are battling oily skin! Also, the smell is pretty gross, i almost gagged as i was toning my nose the first time, but i think its not hard to get past as it does do good things for you skin!
