I've been using this since I was 17. That was over a decade ago. Nothing compares to this toner. You get a lot of product for the money.

It feels cool and light on the skin. I adore the light floral fragrance and it doesn't irritate my normal to dry skin. My skin feels clean and refreshed after I use it and it gets any last bit of makeup that my cold cream didn't get!!!

I do wish the packaging would get updated. The bottle is a little top heavy so it can get knocked over easily. Other than that, this toner has been in L'Oreal's line for 20 years for a good reason . It's a luxury skincare item at a bargain price.

I've been using this off and on for years and I still love it. I like to use it first thing in the morning to clean the oils off my face instead of washing my face. Granted of course I thoroughly cleansed my face the night before. It keeps the dry patches at bay and cleans out the blackheads. Plus it smells so pretty and clean. Hope this never gets discontinued or changed in any way as I've tried so many brands and they've all been fails for lots of reasons. One word of caution, this has alpha hydroxy in it so be careful in the sun and don't overuse cuz you will itch and get dry skin. Once a day has worked for me and I've made it a beauty routine staple. If I get too dry I use it maybe 4 times a week. I find I like this better than most face washes however and since I've been using olive oil at night for my facial moisturizer I haven't had to cut down on using this so I can keep on using it daily. Sometimes our skin gets overly sensitive cuz of all the products and chemicals we use on it every day and we have to draw the line somewhere.

Nice soft scent. It's best to use with a cotton round instead of a cotton ball because the opening is huge and pretty much the same size as the white top on the bottle.
DID NOT leave my face feeling tight, dry or sticky. After washing my face I always moisturize because my face gets super tight and dry. But today I only used the toner & skipped the moisturizer all together and my skin is not screaming for a lotion. Will purchase again!

If you want a toner that doesn't dry your face out then this product is definitely the way to go. It is very refreshing and leaves your skin clean without the tight dry feeling and also has a very great smell. I have combination skin and all of the other toners I've used have left my skin flaky and dry but this one is gentle enough for me to use every day!

I love this toner! It's so soft, moisturizing and cleansing. I've tried toners from literally every brand and they almost always make my skin dry. Hydrafesh makes my skin literally glow, feel so clean and so soft and moisturized. I will warn you that alcohol is an ingredient in this. But the product is 99.9% alcohol free, which why I guess the bottle says Alcohol-Free. My skin usually reacts terribly to alcohol, but it doesn't with Hydrafresh at all. Instead, I have super soft, fresh skin. I sometimes even skip moisturizer when I use this. To make things even better, it's only like 5 or 6 bucks! This paired with L'oreal Even Tone moisturizer is a heavenly combo. BUY IT BUY IT!

Pros: Smells nice, feels cool and refreshing, does not feel dry after applying, you get plenty in one bottle, seems to have some nice ingredients such as rose water, salicylic acid, vitamin E.

Cons: Didn't do anything special to my skin, can be drying if used too much, sometimes I would use only once daily vs. twice daily. Did not treat acne breakouts even with the salicylic acid though it didn't claim to but just saying it didn't help it either.

Overall: Good basic toner. Does its job and nothing more.

I love this toner! I have combo skin and this really freshens my skin but never leaves it tight or dry. I started skipping the toning step in my routine because of all the talk that it wasn't necessary. But you know what? It's a step my skin misses... and it's such a nice step to include because I feel like I'm pampering my skin. HG drugstore toner!!!!

I bought this product since it says "Alcohol free". I had hoped that this product would not irritate my eyes. When I applied it on my face, however, my eyes felt as if I took an eye bath with Tabasco! I didn't even apply it near my eyes. I am now scared to use this again. Also, I think the name "Hydrafresh" is misleading, since I don't find it doing anything.

I was pretty underwhelmed. I admit that I usually use high end lines that look and make my skin feel great. The scent on this bothered me and the toner didn't do much. The label listed a lot of artificial ingredients. I'm going to keep looking.

I love this toner, especially in the winter. I find that after using this product my skin feels more hydrated, smooth, and supple. I mostly use this product when my acne products have been over drying my skin. This toner is a lifesaver during those times, works better than a real moisturizer at times in my opinion. I have oily skin and I don't notice it over hydrating my face at all. This stuff is awesome c:
