I really like this toner. No alcohol, non-drying, light pleasant smell (feel like I'm in Hawaii). It feels like it exfoliates my skin and definitely removes excess dirt and makeup left over from my cleanser. Sometimes it can sting a little if my skin is sensitive that day, but it feels like its doing something. I highly recommend this toner!

Bought this toner because I wanted something with less harmful chemicals in it. I am done using one whole bottle now, and so far I like it. Only sometimes that it makes my skin red when my skin is sensitive, but most of the time it is ok. It doesn't particularly dry or moisturize you skin, just refreshes, which makes your face feel better after washing. The price was $12 at a local pharmacy store. Would repurchase.

I have been using this for about a year now. I switched over from using the Murad line because my skin was changing as I entered my mid-20's. I really love this toner. I have combo skin that is prone to breakouts and this does it's job without breaking me out, or drying out my skin. I don't love the smell, but it fades quickly, so it's something I can live with for such a great product!

When I use this toner I feel as if I'm putting lemonade on my face, it smells exactly like it and it makes me thirsty! Its very refreshing, and cleans off make up residue well. However, if you are looking for a toner that exfoliates flaky skin like me, its not the best. I use this toner at night and I use Clinique toner #2 in the morning. Even though I don't like the fact that clinique has alcohol in it, I feel that it does a much better job in exfoliation. Makeup removal however is the same between the both and I do not get a harsh tingly or stingy feeling with the alba toner. Its gentle, and an effective make up remover which is why I would probably buy this again. I only wish it exfoliated better.

First off even if this product works fairly well, the smell of it is just a deal breaker for me. Its has strong health-food store like scent. and if u get this stuff in your eyes it burns, alot.

I'm on my second bottle. I really like this toner. I like how it smells and how it feels on my skin. I feel like it removes all the traces of the makeup and it preps my skin good for the next step. I hope it keeps working for me =)

I love the Alba Hawaiian line, except for this toner. It makes me break out, like oh so many other things. I looooove the smell - reminds me exactly of lemonade with some floral in it. It feels so good on the skin. But, sadly, my skin is too sensitive and hormonal for it. Boo :(. I would definitely give this is a try, though, if your skin isn't extremely sensitive - because it smells AWESOME. Maybe I'll find another use for this, hmmm....

I love this toner! It's gentle, it removes the last traces of dirt and makeup after washing (I wouldn't use this around the eyes, though!), and it has visibly improved the clarity of my skin.
What's not to love?!

It is too expensive for a toner. I just decided that I needed a toner and bought this after reading the reviews. I really wanted to like this. I loved the smell and the ingredient list. But it actually broke me out. And I am sure this was the reason of my break out because I hadn't changed anything else in my routine. I returned it.

I heard lots of good things about this so I got it for 11.99 at Target, which I thought was a bit expensive for toner. Pros: the bottle is really cute and pretty, it smells really good, doesn't dry out my combination skin, made with all vegetarian ingredients. Con: doesn't make much of a difference on my skin so it doesn't just the price. My skin is pretty tough so I don't break out easily, it's just a matter of finding a product I like to use regularly. I like this but probably won't repurchase because I prefer the Neutrogena Pore Refining toner (just because I feel that "cleaner" tingle when I use it).

I LOVE this stuff. I've been using it for about two weeks and have noticed a big difference in the size of my pores. To be fair, I also switched to the Jason Ester-C cleanser at the same time...so I don't know if it's one or the other, but the combination of the two seems to be doing great. And I LOVE the smell of this toner! Does the job without overdrying. I don't see any reason to ever purchase any other.

This is a very pleasant and gentle toner to use. The scent is only very slightly floral, but it doesn't cloy nor irritate the skin. Removes every last trace of makeup or dirt residue that cleansing didn't remove. There is no alcohol to gag over and my skin is left clear, glowing, and beautifully refreshed. What a wonderful find from AB.

Although I haven't had acne problems per say, I've had many, many times of breakouts. I have tried so many products including ProActiv and NOW have finally found a product line that has cleared my skin. My skin looks wonderful now. I am 38 years old but yet more people than not think I'm in my late 20's or very early 30's!!! I can't say enough about this product. For what you get, the price is definately worth it; plus it's a nice size.

I really like how mild and pleasant this toner is on my combo/congested skin. I don't have any stinging whatsoever, even if I accidentally dab the cotton ball close to my orbital bone.
It helps me get residue from cleansing out of my pores, and in the morning, it allows me to have enough moisture on my skin so that I can apply moisturizer and prevent those annoying winter flakes.

Well, I've bought this twice. Yet I'm pretty ambivalent about this one. Is it doing anything? It has its pros and cons of course. I'm not sure about the long-term effects.
Pros: takes off any makeup left by cleanser, seems to calm down my pimples, nice ingredients
Cons: can make my skin flaky so I sometimes follow with moisturizer
I use it daily, so i don't know how my skin would react if I stopped. I'm pretty sure it hasn't caused any breakouts, so that's a plus as well. I'm curious to try another toner, though. Something that has more oomph to it.

I've been using it for almost a year now and its super gentle and smells great. I've noticed how even my skin tone looks thanks to it and i love the fact that it doesn't burn or sting. I love this toner

I really like this toner. It gets off any makeup residue and smells nice and refreshing. My skin seems to have improved since using this product. Very good toner and not a bad price. Plus, I love the fact that it is cruelty free! EDIT: I've decided to use up my bottle and move on to a different brand. After using it for about a month and a half, I've noticed my skin becoming more sensitive to the toner. It stings and my complexion does not look any better. In fact, it's beginning to look worse. Before this toner I was using The Body Shop Vitamin E toner and I think I will go back to that. It was much more gentle on my skin.

This is a truly great product. No irritants, delicate enough to use on sensitive skin twice a day. Since using this, my face has actually become more moisturized. It also helped keep my pores clean and thus, smaller looking. I never really understood toners, but now that I use this, I see that there was a lot my cleanser was leaving behind, and I use a pretty good one. It's not too pricey either. That warrants five stars for me.

I love the packaging on this product, it really brightens up my sink. Unfortunately, though I loved the way this toner felt on my skin, it doesn't make enough of an actual difference on my skin to justify the price. In fact, my skin looks better now than it did when I used it. Odd.

I got this toner after reading all the reviews. Unfortunately it doesn't work for me. I don't have sensitive skin but this toner actually stings my face from time to time. I so want to like this product but I can't. I'm going back to my Kiehls Calendula Toner.
