I've used this toner for about a month now and it works pretty well for me. I love the cooling sensation when you put it on. Btw, I use a cotton pad to apply it. This has 2% salicylic acid and contains witch hazel, both of which are very good for acne. After using this once a day at night for a month, my oily skin has seemed to become less oily. The scent of this toner is light and refreshing, not overpowering at all.

The one thing that I dislike about this product is the packaging. The dispenser is a little hole that is covered by a flip cap. I always pour out too much toner for one use and then it gets wasted! However, I do like this and will repurchase again.

I bought this at Walmart because it was on clearance for $2. I figured what the hey? I tried this for a week and the first day it really impressed me. Although, my face was dry, it felt very clean (I wear full coverage foundation almost everyday). Then, the following days my t-zone started to get super oily twenty minutes after application. The astringent was the only thing I changed in my routine so it had to be the cause of my face turning into a frying pan. I'm going to keep using it though because it still takes off all my makeup. I'll update if things start to look a little better.

I initially used this for my acne but since using this together with numerous products, my acne is now gone! I wouldn't say that this helped get rid of my acne on its own but it did make my face feel clean and 'dried' it up enough that it didn't feel oily. I continue to use this even without acne because I feel it helps with oil control and I love the refreshing feeling of the witch hazel in it.

This product did reduce my acne when I used it as spot treatment. Tthe high concentration of alcohol does dry out pimples, but may irritate the skin of some people. Alcohol can be very drying to the skin and supposedly causes free radical damage. I'm not taking any chances haha. I stopped using this a couple of years ago since I didn't see the need in using a toner. I think it also may have irritated my skin. It smells nice though. Anyway, people should count on a good cleanser to thoroughly remove excess sebum, dirt, and makeup from the skin, not a toner to remove any lingering traces.
Update 1/28/2012: I found out that like my cleansing oil this toner if pretty effective at removing my waterproof sunblock and bb cream. Since I have to use a harsh cleanser after my cleansing oil to prevent breakouts I think I'm going to consider this as an alternate makeup remover and follow up with a gentle foaming cleanser afterwards.

It works to a certain extent on acne. However as I have dry-sensitive skin, this product BURNS like no tomorrow after a wash. It is so absolutely painful. When I apply moisturiser afterwards, it tones down the stinging, however it still burns. The burning for me is unbearable and hence I have stopped using this product. The burning caused me no visible irritation though.

Toner smells great and is very, very refreshing. Removes dirt and residue very well but the only con I have is that I cannot use this product everyday continuously because it dries out my skin. It overall good product that prevents break outs and tightens pores. Will really purchase ;)

I'm fortunate to have very good skin. I literally NEVER break out. I get occasional pimples right before my period due to hormonal changes, but they usually heal within a day or two. My skin isn't incredibly sensitive either. I try new products all the time and haven't found a product that breaks me out. THIS is the exception. I bought it because I ran out of my HG Neutrogena pore refining toner and thought I'd try this out. I never used toner on a regular basis, so I knew this was the cause of my break outs. Every time I used it, I would get break outs. I don't recommend this product to anyone! Especially since its marketed for acne prevention, which it did the opposite for me.
