I love this stuff. Prevents clogging and gives my face a glow without being harsh and leaving me with irritated, red/flaky skin. I use it once a day before going to bed, under my night cream. I don't bother with cotton balls, just give it a good shake, pour a small amount into my hand, and spread it all over my face. Avoid the eye area, it stings!

A keeper for me. I will continue buying this forever.

I have been using this lotion for ages and I love it! It is refreshing and truly clarifies the skin without drying. Sometimes, when I am going without makeup, I will use it mid-day and skip the moisturizer until I clean my face again in the evening. It is so soothing...and contains NO GLUTEN, which is important to me.
Thank you, Clinique!

I've been using this off and on since the 90's. It's my go-to product when I'm struggling with breakouts or my skin seems dull. It's very gentle but effective.

This is a very good toner for my sensitive combination skin. It isn't stinging or drying, but the salicylic acid makes it a mild exfoliator that helps with clogged pores and eventual breakouts. I hadn't used toners in quite some time, but am happy I incorporated this into my skincare routine. I definitely noticed a change (for better!) in my skin.

I've been using this product for a year before finally making up my mind. In Canada, we have very few options for alcohol free BHA toners and I mainly added this in to help my antioxidant products work better. I can only find this one at Sears. It doesn't seem to do a lot- very subtle effect. However when I stopped using it for a couple weeks recently, I had breakouts and red marks galore and as soon as I started using it again, I stopped breaking out and marks are improving. It doesn't help my clogged pores very much, if it did this would be HG for me. Overall its pretty effective for breakouts and skin tone so I'll keep buying until something better comes along.
Note: I've read that after applying BHA, you should wait 20 minutes before applying anything else to your face. I'm trying it out and it does seem to be working out well for me!

This is a very nice toner! Not too drying. My first foray into BHA products but I bought this becoz it has salicylic acid AND sans alcohol/menthol but I am wondering if I need #2 instead coz my face seems like it needs something w a bit more bite. But I am going to use up this bottle at least the rest of it & see what happens. I use this w sheisedo facial cotton which is soooo incredible. Clinique 3 step & assoc products are awesome. I use DDMG, bar soap, liquid oily skin soap, TT day golden glow, TT night, spot acne treatment, moisture surge, & the eye roller. So I've got a good amount invested in Clinique skincare. I could never use anything harsher than #2 toner thou w all that alcohol. I've never really given a toner w/o alcohol a try so I will def use up this bottle I am not returning it. I would probably buy it again coz I think it's good for the skin but maybe my skin hasn't adjusted to the milder products yet. This toner is pretty benign so I don't think I'm going to wreck my skin on it by drying it out. If anything it's a little too moisturizing for my very oily skin. I've not broken out from it. My skin isn't used to being treated in a gentle manner it's used to alcohol big time so it may have to keep adjusting.

Its a gentle toner, no stinging or drying feeling but I believe has salicylic acid in it, so works well on my combination skin.

Using once a day a bottle will last at least 6 months, so good value.

Definitely one which will stay with me in my skin care routine

Long story short...great lotion for my combo/sensitive skin. Like the packaging and the silky feeling on my skin after applying this product. I always use it after washing my face by the Clinique "Take the day off milk". They work great together and leave nice dewy radiance finish.

Pros - packaging, good for sentisitive combo skin.

Cons - have to put quite a lot of product on my cotton pad, it's just too easy to get absorbed, think I am wasting too much of the product which is not great as it's not the cheapest to be honest :( Due to this I take one lippy off the rating. If I ever find a pad/cloth which does not absorb half of the lotion before putting on my skin I will change the rating up to the full mark :)
