Love this stuff. I have really dry skin and after washing my face this helps bring back that soft feeling. I've tried others like Juice Beauty and L'oreal, but I keep coming back to this one.

Have been using it for a while, does not seem to work really.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
This product didn't really do much for me. My main skin problems, aka redness under the nose areas, shiny T-zone, etc still remained. I didn't really feel like my skin got extra moisture retention, but neither did it break out or get worse.
(If anyone else has seen me review stuff, yeah I got this as a tester as well - so bear in mind I haven't exactly used this for a long enough period of time to judge as well as a lot of other people!)

I bought a Make a Difference kit in a sale and started using it all at the same time. I went from a shiny, breakout, flaky troll to a clear and glowy angel in TWO days! ever since I've used, and loved, this line. I'm not sure if I've truly need the toner, but I really enjoy the smell and feeling of it!

I hate it when I run out of this! I have extreme dry, sensitive skin with oly t-zone (argh!) and find this balances my skin without over moisturising my t-zone. Like my other review of 'eye doctor' if my skin is going through a normal period it doesn't seem to do that much, but when my skin feels like I've been stranded in the desert this is also like a miracle and my skin instantly feels rehydrated. I love it, love it, love it. If your skin is dehydrated pat this on before your moisturiser ( I even find that I don't need half as much and I usuallymoisturise twice a day and often have to top up in day, but not with this). You'll notice this difference once you sto uing it! P.S. If you have combo skin it is best to find a liquid treatment like this (or a serum) 'coz they hydrate without affecting the oily areas too much. This one is brilliant.

Holy cystic acne! This stuff made me break out like crazy and didn't do anything to hydrate or remove dirt after cleansing. I live in a dry central California valley and need lots of extra moisture, and I'd been feeling especially parched lately and had some success with Make a Difference cream, so I thought I'd try this as an accompaniment to my usual routine. Never again! I woke up with two vicious dry patches around my mouth and a cluster of angry bumps under the surface- the painful kind! I don't care if this was my skin "purging"- I'm not going to use this stuff again just to find out if that's the case. This isn't the first time I've been more than underwhelmed with Origins products- they are really hit-and-miss.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I think it's important to remember that this is a treatment and not a toner. It's to help add hydration to your skin and not to cleanse like a toner. I personally LOVE this product! It adds a refreshing amount of moisture to my skin before I apply my face cream. I would defiantly recommend this treatment for someone who wants a bit if extra hydration.

When I was using this toner I saw no benefit or improvement it was a waste of money. It does have a nice smell but thats pretty much it.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Dry, Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Straight Eyes: Brown
I have dry skin and prefer a moisturizing toner. Compared to other moisturizing toners like Lancome's Confort, La Prairie, and Nivea's which still pick up leftover makeup/dirt while not drying me out, this sucks. I NEVER got the feeling that my face was completely clean after using this as I do with most toners. Waste of my $21. I tried a bunch of Origins face and body products and was unimpressed with everything I got.
I did like the flip-top but it's a moot point. 5 fl. oz./150 ml $21.00 retail.

Excellent toner. It takes off any left over cleanser, scrub, or face mask, while leaving a thin moisturizing film behind that quickly sinks into my skin. According to Allure Magazine, this is supposed to be a good prep for absorbing your moisturizer, but I can't really discern the effects on that one. This is fine for combination skin as it doesn't increase the oilies on my T-zone area throughout the day. It doesn't matify either as there is still the same amount of oilies on my skin each day, but then again it's supposed to be for dry skin. It's a stronger toner than Thayer's Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner, has the same cleansing power as Clinique's Clarifying Lotion #2 (but without the sting, intense smell, or alcohol), but has a less matifying effect than the Fresh Seawater and Iris Root Treatment Toner. It's also a third of the price of the Fresh toner. The toner is packaged in a flip top bottle with an opening that's prone to spillage. I keep the cotton ball right up against the mouth of the opening, giving it a little space to come out to avoid this problem. Not a deal breaker for me. Will buy again for sure.

This toner did not improve my skin tone at all. It felt and smelt medicinal and dull. Also it does not eliminate any traces of dirt. Another waste of my 15 pounds, Im reverting back to my clinique mild clarifying toner which makes my skin alot more softer and brighter and wipes all traces of dirt! Seriously I'm done with all origins products.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
The smell is fresh, like all of Origins' products. This toner doesn't contain any alcohol, thus doesn't leave my skin tight or dry. I bought my first bottle from a department store, and jumped on the chance to buy another bottle at a discount price from the Cosmetics Company outlet. I definitely recommend this over the clinique skin special.

i quite like this toner - it stung abit, at first, but after a few uses, my skin really loved this! it was hydrating and the smell was pretty nice once you got used to it.

I'm def on the fence about this toner. I have used toners before and not liked them. Most toners leave my very dry skin tight and uncomfortable. I brought this because the MA at Origins suggested I use it with the Make a Difference moisturizer. This toner claims to help skin rebound from dramatic dehydration. I will say that this stuff does not leave my skin tight or dry I can't really tell if it's helping my skin bounce back from anything. I probably won"t repurchase. BTW this stuff cost 21.00 bucks. 7/2/09 Just to update. Sadly this crap sits in my medicine cabinet. Those Origin ladies know how to do an additive sale. This stuff made my face bumpy. So I used the facial moisturizer only.
