One of my favorite toners. Antioxidants are a benefit but I liked it because it did not strip my skin. It was moisturizing but not too much so that it felt heavy or broke me out. It was a treat misting my face after cleansing. Sometimes I put it on a cotton ball and swiped my face. Either way, it is great for dry and/or aging skin but can be used for normal to combination types too.

Generous bottle with a spray dispenser. I don't know why companies use a spray if the toner should not go anywhere near your eyes (like this one). I spritz into a cotton pad to use. It leaves my skin clean and refreshed, not stripped or irritated. For reference, I have combination skin (tending towards oily), that is also sensitive.

Do i like this product yes? BUT its just too expensive for what it does. I noticed no difference in my skin when using it BUT it did make me feel pampered and calm. I used it when my skin needed refreshing or even to set my makeup. I loved that you did get a large amount tho, and the packaging is ideal, just way overpriced imo.

The price is much too high but it works as a spritz and NOT a toner.
If it was half its price, I'd buy it by the case, but for the price......
My skin actually feels softer, though not tighter, after using it. It doesn't sting and I do NOT believe its claims - antioxidant, clearing away pollution, yeah whatever. I originally used it as a toner and Clinque works much better, though my face doesn't feel as soft as Kinerase with Clinique toner.
Yes, I too, got the spray top which unfortunately is very wasteful and shows the lack of Quality Control Kinerase has. This is pretty sad in this day and age of 6Sigma and Quality Assurance in manufacturing.
Nevertheless, I use it before I wear makeup and it actually helps with my dry patches. I don't know that I will buy it again, but I will try Evian instead. It does last quite a while, but I wonder if the softness of my skin is actually the molecules of the product instead of my skin getting softer. Either way, I like it. I'd recommend it because other misters don't make my face as soft or seal in moisture as well. (I always felt the MAC Studio prep line was more of a primer for make-up, makes makeup stick more to your face. It certainly wasn't an active moisturizer.)
The smell is not like Fruit Loops to me. It's agreeable and subtle and evaporates upon drying.

I bought this as a companion product to the Kinerase moisture light. The moisture light was a bust and this product didn't fare any better.
I used the toning mist sparingly at first and with no significant results other than a risidual sting from the active ingredient letting you know it's there (but not working) I started applying it more liberally. Still no results.
As I have oily skin I often have to lightly cleanse my face at least once midday to avoid looking like a greasy shiny mess. So I carried this silly little bottle around with me throughout the day to mist. I wasted my time and money and felt quite silly pulling this bottle out of my bag.
This toner doesn't do a thing other than make me feel even more broke after having paid for the moisture light. What an expensive Joke.

Best toner to use ONLY if you're face is super dry or irritated. It hydrates and cleanse..without the burning sensation like other toners. Mainly because it doesn't have enough alcohol in it to make your face sting. Overall, I use it just to refresh my face, or like I said, on dry days--before the moisturizer. I see all the dirt and residue on the cotton pad and i wipe my face with this product, so I know it still has a regular effect as other toners. Its not bad in price, even though it's Kinerase ($125 for reg. moisturizer--eep!) However, I do not the spray bottle it comes in. Wish it was a regular bottle, so it will be easier to apply onto cotton pad than having to spray it.
Very effect and tones out my skincolor naturally and cleanse out the residue soap left behind. Nice Kinerase, well done!

I've been using the MAC Charged Water spray and I can definitely say that this spray works a lot better. The spray delivers a finer mist and doesn't leave me looking like I just got sprayed with a hose. It leaves my skin with a nice glowing sheen and I got compliments from everyone about my nice skin!
The price is a bit high, but I think it's definitely worth it. Look for deals online, I've been able to find 20% codes to make this product a bit cheaper.

Great toner for post cleansing and as a freshener throughout the day.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Black
This toner does smell like Fruit Loops, lol! However, it's not a very strong fragrance and I actually don't smell any fragrance when it's on my skin. I prefer to apply the toner by spraying it onto a cotton pad instead of spraying directly onto my skin. It seems to me that the very best toners don't do very much and this one is no different but I like the fresh, clean feeling it gives my skin and the antioxidants don't hurt. I'm on my second bottle, which lasts quite a long time, but I can no longer justify spending $40 for such an unessential product so I'm afraid I won't be rebuying. I'm going back to Paula's Choice toners, which worked just as well and by that I mean they didn't do much but made my skin feel good.

I like the product for when my skin is really dry. It seems to have no effect in the cleansing part as a toner, but it does hydrate and keep my skin balanced and refresh through the day. For almost $40 though, I think I can find something better.

This mist/toner smells exactly like Fruit Loops. It's sticky too.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Sensitive, Olive Hair: Black Eyes: Black
I really, really, really wanted to love this, but I only like it. I have super-sensitive skin, and I've been spraying this one my lower face and neck (not upper face, usually, cause that's where most of my sensitivity lies), and I do notice it softens the skin and gives a nice moist glow for a spell. However, I do worry it might affect me later on. (I'll post if it does.)
For now, it's a refreshing mist, which does seem to have some minimal effect, but not enough for the price, frankly.

I love spraying the Kinerase toner directly onto my face and patting the mist around evenly (if youíre not as lazy as me, you can opt to use the cotton ball!). On afternoons when Iím especially tired or haggard, I spray the mist as a refresher and hydrator. Itís fast, light-feeling, and doesnít make me feel like Iím dousing my skin with too many chemicals.

Unfortunately my skin was also irritated by this product - my dermatitis has been under great control for a month with no signs of irritation. However, seconds after I spray skin on my skin or swipe it on, I'll break out in small red bumps all over my cheeks and around my nose. Unlike other products which initially cause slight irritation, my skin has not learnt to like this one.
It also leaves an annoying sheen on my face - maybe this is supposed to be the moisturising property of it? I'm not sure, but it isn't nice.
I REALLY wanted to like this product because of the great reviews and it seems as though it's filled with great ingredients. In summer, I might try this as a body spray on a hot day or something. I feel bad for the wasted money!!

Something in this toner irritates my face, causing hives if I use more than just one pump each time. Good moisturizing quality though. Will finish this bottle but won't be purchasing again due to high level of "Diazolidinyl Urea" (the 4th ingredient). So sad, I like that it does not have coloring and fragrance.

this smells like fruit loops! okay, now that i got that out of the way... i'm very torn over this product. it's definitely versatile (oh, do i love multi-taskers!), but while it performs in many areas, i find it still somewhat lacking. [for reference, i have normal/dry skin that is breakout-prone of late. i bought this product for it's gentle properties in an attempt to give my skin a little break from harsh products i'd been using].
first, the positives: did i mention it's versatile? thus far, i've used it as a toner (day & night), right after a shower to hydrate my face so i don't have to use moisturizer. i've tried it to set my make-up (emphasis on tried; not sure if it helped). my favorite thing about this, though, is that it really helps my moisturizer to sink in & absorb better allowing me to use less moisturizer.
now, the not so positives: as a toner, i don't think it's effective. or, to put it better, i think there are more effective toners that are a lot cheaper. yes, this product is expensive. although it is a huge bottle, i've not seen results that justify the steep price tag. maybe this product works better w/ other kinerase products.
that said, i do believe this is a good product; a part of me feels i may not be using this properly hence the mediocre results. the reason i gave it 4 lippies (& the reason i won't repurchase) is b/c i exchanged the ddf sulfur mask for this & i kind of regret it.

First of all, my toner does not MIST- perhaps there is something wrong with the packaging???? That aside, I think this is an excellent product!! I have an oily sensitive skin and I am completely in love with the Clear Moisture Light. Now I am using this with it in conjunction and my skin has never looked better. Just wish I could use it as a mist throughout the day too.

Update: November2010 - I am no longer using this. I have become sensitive to most products and I am trying to use more natural skincare products.
Original review: I love this toner! I'm on my fourth bottle. Whenever I travel, I transfer some to a 3 ounce sprayer and spritz my face on the plane to keep from dehydrating. This is my favorite Kinerase product. I have sensitive combination skin and after I shower I just spritz my face while it is still damp. I've never had any breakouts or irritation while using this toner. I definitely recommend this product.

I love this! Very refreshing and hydrating! No breakouts!! I've tried many toners and this has been the best so far, i love that you can use it as mist during the day.

This gave me a rash...i think ill just stick with my shiseido products they seem to work well with my super sensitive skin
