Best drugstore toner ever! I have oily, acne prone skin that seems to accumulate blackheads like no other. Usually only have hormonal breakouts. I have tried DDF 10% Glycolic Acid toner before it changed the name and dropped % in AHA. It was great, but not as awesome as this IMO. AHA is the 3rd ingredient on the list! And it also has BHA and Witch Hazel, all these together keep my skin so amazingly clear, fresh and soft. The alcohol doesn't bother me, I've used toners in the past that contain waaaay more alcohol than this and very overpowering but this is perfect. Have noticed a dramatic difference in my pores and they were huge, like no joke!! The BHA/AHA combo have been clearing them and keeping them tight! My makeup goes on like a dream and I've noticed my skin is less oily in the day. Highly recommend! I bought this for $15 in AU and will definitely be repurchasing. I hope this helps all you ladies who have skin like mine!

I really like this toner. I haven't really used a toner for years because I had bad experiences with them drying my skin out and irritating everything. This does NOT do those things!! I can't really say that it has done much to reduce pore size, but I didn't really expect that either. I have noticed that my skin feel softer and smoother, more even, and brighter. I will probably try out some different toners, but will most likely end up coming back to this one.

I have oily, acne prone skin, and this toner has helped keep my face clear. It has really helped reduce the amount of blackheads I have. I used this for four months liking it, then stopped for several months. My skin suffered for it. More black heads and break outs.

If you have sensitive skin proceed with caution. I was kind of worried at first, because alcohol, witch hazel, aha/bha, eucalyptus, peppermint--It all sounds irritating. Despite this it works, and skin is so much better. So I'm going to stick with this toner. I'm not sure what percentage of glycolic acid is in it, but I like that this is an affordable drug store product with glycolic acid as the third ingredient.

This can burn a bit, but it does kill any potential breakouts and does make pores seem smaller.

The scent is kind of intense.

Packaging is great. It's a flip top bottle and it dispenses just the right amount on a cotton pad.

It has AHA,BHA and some alcohol, so if you use this in the daytime, wear sunblock,because it will probably increase your sun sensitivity.

Dry skin will not be happy with this toner, but oily skin or acne prone skin may really like it.

Having had acne prone and oily skin for some time and nothing seeming to work, I decided some research on different skin products was well overdue. I wasn't keen to buy the best products I had read about due to the hefty price tags do have this a go. After 1 week of using this, along with the Neutrogena foaming face wash, I am already seeing a significant reduction in oil, and I am not having to reapply make at lunch, just some blotting of t-zone. Very gentle product that deep cleans, keeps oil at bay without drying and with a decent price tag!

The toner smells sooo good! It doesn't sting! I have acne-prone Skin, an oily at the T-Zone. This is what I used it for! Don't use it for dry, sensitive Skin, it contains alcohol, glycolic & salicylic acid!

Heard many rave reviews about this and the product was cheap, so I decided to check it out. First few times, the toner felt just OK, I don't think it did much for my pores but I continued using it anyway. After a few times, this product completely burned and stung my face every time I applied it, regardless of on whether I apply it after exfoliating or gently cleansing my face.

This product seemed too good to be true, it was the perfect toner.. until i started breaking out everywhere!! It might have been my own fault for using this toner everyday since i was so obsessed with its amazing ability to rid my skin of dirt, but i really havent seen any difference in my pores. I would recommend this excwpt that dont expect minimised pores and use the product for makeup removal and not everyday because ive ended up with pimples that dont look like they're going anytime soon :(

This product saved my life! I have normal combination skin with occasional breakouts before my period. I started using this toner because I was going to the gym a lot and wanted something to really get rid of my makeup after sweating. It seemed to be doing a good job and I had no issues with the product. Then one day I was reading about apple cider vinegar and it's beneficial properties so I decided to jump ship and use that as a toner. Big mistake!! I broke out like crazy! Then I went for a stronger product from Paula's Choice- Clearskin toner with Salycic acid. I continued to break out like you wouldn't believe. I read reviews about purging and I chose to believe them and stick with it. Another mistake. So four days ago I decided to stop and go back to my Neutrogena toner. My skin is already clearing up. Thank you!!! I have read many reviews about how harsh the alcohol is in it but it simply works for my skin and is even starting to clear up my old acne scars. I will continue to use this product.

I really liked this! I found it again after having lost it for a while and it's pretty good! I don't really have problems with acne, sensitive skin, or overtly huge pores - so take that into account - but I found that this toner didn't dry out my skin and it made it incredibly smooth to the touch. I would buy it again, it doesn't break me out and it makes me feel fresh and clean.
