Instead of using this as my daily toner (I use green tea) I used this as a refreshing mist after the gym or anytime I felt my skin needed a quick pick me up. I really like it and will repurchase in the future. The scent is very nice and the product is not sticky or thick.

I tried this product because it was 50% off at CVS- I'm not sure if that is because they are discontinuing it or if it was just on sale. At any rate, I was looking for a decent toner with mostly natural ingredients so I thought I would give this one a shot.
I haven't used it daily or for an extended period of time, but these are my general thoughts.
Performance- this does seem to help cleanse the remains of makeup and sunscreen off of my face at the end of the day, which is what I want my toner to do. It's definitely not hydrating like it says it is, but it doesn't strip my face either. It does not seem to irritate me or break me out.
Feel- This gives my face an extra boost of "clean" on hot summer days. I keep it in the fridge for midday or end of day spritzes after I wash my makeup off. The combination of the toner and the cold from the fridge is really refreshing.
Ingredients- Witch hazel cleanses oily skin but isn't as harsh as regular alcohol. Aloe Vera calms and cools the skin. There are some unnatural ingredients toward the bottom of the list, but I do give them props for stating that the product is 97.5% natural and not claiming "all-natural" like some brands do. Not wild about the added fragrance though, some may find it irritating.
Smell- Not my favorite, but not bad. It isn't overwhelming, but there is a faint plastic-y undertone that I don't 100% enjoy. It's not enough to make me want to avoid the product though.
Overall: I like this product on hot summer days and for extra cleansing, especially when kept in the fridge. I don't consider it an essential however, and I'll probably look at other toners in the future. I would recommend this to oily or combination skin types that are looking for a gentle toner in the summer, though I would warn dry skin types that it would probably be a bit drying. I took off a point for added fragrance and honestly not being all that important to my skincare.
