As far as I can tell from the picture, this is the Dutch name for Nivea Visage *GENTLE TONER*.

I have sensitive combination skin edging on oily, but I found just about all other "for oily" or "combination" skin toners go too far with their drying effects or have too much fragrance or colours or such (as if there's no such thing as combo/oily *sensitive* skin), and most of the milder toners have so much mitigating moisture in there that the result is counterproductive. -_-;

I really wanted something gentler (and I mean *really* gentle and not just tea tree instead of alcohol or other similarly drying trade-offs), so the Gentle Toner sounded ideal. However while it is indeed relatively soothing and certainly *very* gentle, the astringent properties are nearly nonexistent (probably just a mismatch for my borderline oily skin though), and it really doesn't offer any sort of cleansing effect. I'm disappointed by the latter especially, because I almost never wear make-up, so it's not like I'm asking much there. :(

I'm currently alternating between this one and Nivea's Pure & Natural (ha! whatever) Purifying Toner "for all skin types," which is working much better for me at least, though harsher than I'd like at times.

It's easy to apply, very affordable, but it's incredibly gentle, which means it doesn't do anything for you skin(positive & negative). For me it doesn't dry out and doesn't cause me any problem. If you just want some water on your face but do not really expect any other effects, this is for you.

For the price I might purchase it again, when I have no issue with my skin. Otherwise nope.
