Love this toner.
The good: NO ALCOHOL. Lol... Alcohol in skincare break me out and there are very few clarifying toners in the market that has no alcohol and still does a good job of clarifying and mildly exfoliating. It's good at prepping my skin for my serum and moisturizer. Instructions on the package say to use it only once a day which is why I did. My skin gets dry pretty easily if I use too much oil-free products or exfoliating products. So I've never tried using this toner twice a day to give a lowdown on what happens then. Haha..
Really good packaging too. You place your cotton pad on the top of the bottle and press it down to release the toner on the cotton pad.
The bad: None so far!

I actually really like this toner. I only use it once a day because I'm using aha's and retinoids and I was so sick of having acne into my adulthood. This toner is helping keep my skin under control. When I use this usually in the am I find my skin is less oily and even toned. I moisturize with Acure oily skin moisturizer,prime with Clarins primer it's heaven btw. I finish with some Strobe and BB cream. This combo has made me skin really nice and it has not broken out at all. If I use it at night I also use 10% aha cream and Cerave PM. This combo along with retin a yes it's a lot but believe it or not I have no acne and have not broken out.
I really like the dispenser on this it's like the cleanser for the beauty blender so this method is clean and you don't over use the product. I have read this has ingredients that help with hormonal acne and that has been my problem. So when I heard that I snatched this stuff up and so far so good. I have been using it over 2 weeks and by now my skin would of broken out, and I haven't. If you have hormonal acne I do say give this a shot it's working for me when I thought I was hopeless. If your skin is super sensative only use it once a day and use a more gentle toner at night like Thayers or something in the non alcohol realm.
I'm very happy with my skins clarity and tone. I will us this always unless my skin cannot tolerate it but so far with all the stuff I use this toner seems to be a great part of my skin care arsenal. Def recommended if you have hormonal acne because it has kept mine at bay and I'm grateful for that.

I like this toner, the fact that it does not have alcohol and does not irritate me is great for my acne prone, combo, sensitive skin.
Update: because I liked my results so much I started using this am & pm but it was too much for my skin. So I will continue to use it only once a day at night.
Update: after a month of continued use I haven't seen any results in clarifying or lightening of acne scars. I find its a little bit drying too. I Will finish up the bottle but will not re-purchase.

As a toner it doesn't really do much. I have used many many toners and needed one to help alleviate clogged pores and clear my skin. This one is mediocre at best. I love the packaging though. It makes it so much easier to dispense onto a cotton pad. I will keep the rest of the toner and use it up and then refill it with something else. (I may just end up going back to my much beloved Shu Uemura toner in the red container.)

I have been using this product religiously with my Kate Somerville skincare routine. I find myself using this to mainly help remove the residue left over from the products I use to wash my face. I find the product refreshing at first but leaves my skin a little tacky. I am finishing out this bottle since it wasn't exactly cheap and will then be trying a different toner.

I really like this toner. It does not contain alcohol so it doesn't burn when I apply it and my skin does not feel tight after application. This product does make my pores appear slightly smaller. Also, since this is a clarifying treatment it should fade dark marks from old acne marks. And it does! That's what I like about it so much. For me, in conjunction with several other products and a good skin care routine, it has improved the overall appearance of my face! The packaging is also great because it comes in a pump so you don't use more than you need (which saves money).

I wanted to love this toner, but I absolutely HATE it. It leaves my face looking greasy-shiny, and feeling sticky. It made me breakout almost immediately after using it, and the breakouts went away when I stopped using it. For the price I expected so much better, and was very disappointed by what I got.

Eh, it's okay. Really effective at getting rid of the "flakies" caused by acne medications, so that is reason in itself to use this. But I just didn't notice any benefits from using this. If you like toners, then this is good I suppose. Alcohol free at least and geared toward fighting acne, you do not see that combination everyday!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
This is alright. I did not notice any effectiveness regarding acne treatment. I do like that it doesn't have alcohol, but to me it was an unneeded step in my routine simply because I didn't think it did anything. If you MUST use a toner, this is a nice one regardless of if your acne prone or not. PS. My mom bought this and tried it and she said her skin was the oiliest it's ever been and this was the only thing she altered in her skin care regimen. I didn't experience this problem though.

I love this toner! It is non-drying and alcohol free. I only use it on my oily areas and it certainly helps keep the pimples at bay. This formula is perfect for my tempermental menapausal oily skin.The packaging is fantastic and extremely hygenic.
