I love this stuff. Really helps me get off all the dirt and excess makeup off my face after washing it. I also bought neutrogenas toner like the review before me and it burned my face terribly and felt horrible

So far so good. I bought this after returning the Neutrogena Oil Eliminating Toner (Blue one).
For some reason my skin HATES, absolutely HATES anything Neutrogena. I haven't been bored enough to try and figure out what ingredient irritates my skin so horribly, but the Neutrogena toner broke me out something horrendous. Large, red and pus filled acne.
I picked this up this past Monday and it's now Friday, I've been using this everyday, 2x a day since Monday.
It really helped get rid of the nasty acne that Neutrogena left on my face. Neutrogena also dried my face out so bad. I must have lost about 8 layers of skin per day in dry flakes. The dryness is finally going away after nights of deep moisturizing lotion.
I think there are people who can handle Neutrogena, and people who can handle Clean & Clear.
I'm definitely a Clean & Clear person. No breakouts, no drying, and clearing up the bad acne I had.

Its not for everyone and most definitely not for sensitive skin. I can see how it "burns" for many, but it is the only toner than thoroughly cleans my skin and keeps it blackhead free. Use sparingly because it will dry out your skin. I absolutely love it because my skin is SUPER oily and super tough! This is the best thing ever created for my skin.

I started using this product over a year ago and if I had ever forgotten to use it, I'd know because of the excess oil on my face. My makeup goes on smoother, without a greasy feel. Needless to say, I love this product and it actually works for my skin type-- supahhh oily.

I really like this stuff. I don't have much to compare it too, the only other toner I've ever used is Proactiv's and I do think Proactiv's was slightly more effective. This is definitely good quality though. I usually use a make up wipe to remove my make up at night instead of washing my face because I'm usually too tired/lazy to go all the way to the bathroom to do it when I'm just going to take a shower in the morning and wash my face anyways. I use the Maybelline's New "Clean Express" make up wipes (in the pink package) and although they do work very well, they don't always get everything since I wear MAC's Prolong Wear Foundation/Concealer and that stuff is TOUGH to remove completely from your skin, which is good during the day and bad at night - haha. I use my cotton pads and soak up about 3 or 4 and it completely removes all traces of make up, dirt, and whatever oil is on my face. I love the stinging feeling I get when I put this on because I can feel it burning and killing all that nasty bacteria - as weird as that is. Definitely a good astringent and I will most definitely be repurchasing and using up at least one more bottle until and if I try something else.

If I based my decision on the reviews I probably wouldn't be where I am now. Despite the negative reviews, I was still curious as to what this product could do so I gave it a shot. I don't regret it at all. After having horrible dry skin that would flake, I tried the products from SIMPLE. It helped my skin and eventually I moved on to clean and clear. I have the facial wash and the moisturizer. I was a little reluctant at first cause its an astringent and I have oily yet sensitive skin. It does have a pretty bad smell but I really like how soft my skin feels afterwards. It really controls my oily face. I find myself not becoming annoyed with my oily nose throughout the day. I bought it at Walmart for about 3 dollars. I'll definitely repurchase :)

This stuff was terrible on my skin. It made it all red, and I thought at first it was only doing that because it was working, but after 2 days, my face was breaking out terribly! I thought maybe I should give it a chance, so I used it for 2 weeks, and my face was red, and covered in zits. My neck has always been completely clear, so to try something, I put this stuff on a spot on my neck and 2 days later I had pimples on my neck. I am never buying that stuff again

I like this i guess...its not amazing. The alcohol is really strong when i put it one it makes my eyes water. Also I dont like the bottle because it pours out very fast.

I used this for a long time when I was a teenager and it did nothing for me. Kind of irritating. Doesn't smell good at all. There are better toners out there.

There are two things, and only two things, that have kept my skin clear for the past 7 or so years. One is the Dove Sensitive Skin beauty bar and this is the other. If I go without one or the other for more than a day, I will get breakouts, but with the combination of both of these, a blemish is a rarity.
I believe that we are supposed to stay away from toners with alcohol in them - dries out your skin, bad for your skin, etc etc. I DON'T CURR. This is the only thing that works for me. I battled with my acne for years - my skin was perfect up until I turned 18 and then it went crazy. I never was without at least two deep cystic pimples at any given time, and I don't even want to get started on the war zone my face looked like after dozens of acne scars. This went on for years and I tried soooo many different things for my skin, including prescription medications, and some of them worked for a while, but the problems would always come back. The combination of the Dove beauty bar and this astringent is the only regimen that works for me to keep pimples at bay on a pretty much permanent basis. I can actually go out without foundation now without feeling super self conscious. I get frequent of compliments on my skin, which honestly still amazes me after having had such TERRIBLE skin for years.
The only thing that makes me a little sad is that I'm basically chained to Dove beauty bar and Clean & Clear astringent for the foreseeable future hahaha. Sometimes when I go out of town I've forgotten one or the other and I'll have to find a drugstore nearby to purchase since whatever the hotel/friend I'm staying with has won't cut it. However, I should consider myself lucky because a) neither of them are expensive b) both are easily accessible, stocked by pretty much any drugstore or supermarket and c) they work. I guess that's all I can ask for!
