I never really know how to pin down my skin type, because it seems to change almost daily... Sometimes I get so oily just chilling on the couch eating pistachios or something that I look like an athlete in those old Gatorade adverts, except instead of Gatorade I'm drenched in sebum. Then randomly later my skin gets so dry that it looks like I have face dandruff from the flaking, or like a reptilian faux-human that must periodically shed its epidermis like a snake. Hello, fellow homosapiens!

So I just stick to calling it "sensitive." I don't really have "acne" but I do have a lot of blackheads (apparently no matter what I do!) and some hormonal breakouts once in a while. I've noticed that this toner helps zits come to a head quickly, but unlike some other toners I have tried, it doesn't bring the irritation or swelling down much. Which surprised me, because I thought the cool mentholy feeling would do something like that. It also didn't clear any of my blackheads, or give my skin a much "cleaner" look at all really. For me, this seemed to simply dry out the very top layer of the skin, without actually having any pore-purifying properties. Hey, say that three times fast... So, meh, this was kind of a dud for me. I do like the amount of product you get for such a cheap price though.

I had to put this review out based on the results that this product delivered to my skin. I have adult acne prone skin that can be sensitive to certain products. I have been using this for a few months now with no dryness or irritation. My skin just glows and the oil is cut right down. I use it a few times a day, especially on my forehead and chin which cause me the most problems. My skin is oily and acne prone, so it works very good. I cannot live without this product. finally, something inexpensive that works as a good prep product prior to topical acne creams. My topical acne creams seem to work much more efficiently with this as a prep. I highly recommend this product.

If you have sensitive skin, I wouldn't recommend you use neither one of the Sea Breeze astringent. Any toner containing alcohol in it isn't good for sensitive skin. I read and saw so many reviews on this products and heard about this being a nostalgic products and decided to get it. The min I used this on my face, a burning sensation happened and I had to immediately go wash my face. Never again.

i am almost done with my first bottle of this. this is an amazing drugstore find, i have the occasional hormonal breakouts, bc honestly who doesn't. this dries out the area just enough and doesn't leave that too tight feeling that most toners with high alcohol content do. my forehead has some uneven texture and i think that this helps smooth it out. i have it on the on the bridge between my eyebrows as well but in weary of using it on that area bc too much can sting eyes, so maybe a cotton swab dabbed with this can give me a more targeted application. this is such a good product I will continue to repurchase this. also i use this to clean my glasses when it gets super oily that wont come off with soap and water and it cuts through it with no effort at all and makes it super clean again

I have dermatits on my forehead, it appears as a layer of thick scaly texture, not attractive at all. it is more apparent in the week leading up to my cycle, but after a swipe of this on my forehead, it seems to have made my issue significantly improve.
I went to the dr abt my problem and she told me that my issue will sometimes improve and worsen on its own, regardless of what I do
it might also be a build up of oil in addition to hormones but it does seem to improve and kept at bay when I used it the past week so because of that I will continue to use this.
I love how affordable it is.

i find this to be pretty gentle despite how much alcohol is in this, and it is amazing to see how well it cuts through oil buildup,

i alternate between this and the dickinsons' brand of witch hazel

This stuff is hardcore for if u have extremely tuff oily acnegenic broken out skin. Do not use on certain blemishes w/o being aware that using on raw open blemishes will irritate skin & burn like a mofo from the alcohol (ouch) so it's painful if applied to something freshly "drained" (trying to be polite...I really mean "fooled w/" in the manner of popped/picked at!). It will however, dry it out help it heal ASAP & kill it. I recently had to clear up a break out after what I'm not exactly sure what of tbh but I had my 1st "whitehead" (ew. IKR), in over ten years but I had broken out kray kray. I hadn't used this in awhile but it's good stuff! I've now been using Noxzema adult acne products more regularly to keep under control after slacking off because the Seabreeze is quite drying for cold weather, but half a dozen 1 or the other a lot of DS anti blemish toners/pads contain SD alcohol & Salicylic acid in varying strengths but SeaBreeze, Noxzema pads or Dickensens witch hazel are the only DS toners I can use on a regular basis...& I cleanse my face AM w Noxzema the regular one or elf daily cleanser, scrub a cpl x a week & a light moisturizer AM/PM besides. I take off my makeup PM w a Magic Eraser cloth. SeaBreeze is awesome for summer!!

This is an Old School staple! Hands down this is one of the best astringents you can purchase. Don't get wrong, I love my Thayers rose toner, but I use it when my skin is feeling "pretty". Now when my skin is bumpy and feeling icky I break out the Sea Breeze, it gets the job done and dries everything up. Its only a few bucks so you can't go wrong, try it out.

I use both Sensitive Skin Astringent by Sea Breeze & itís an unbelievably amazing part of my daily skincare routine. I have been using it for almost a year now & itís the only astringent Iíll even touch. Some people are going to think it is gross, but I donít wash my face during the day because my skin is just too sensitive. If I washed my face twice a day (morning & night), I would get way too dry & thatís painful for me. What I do instead is dampen a cotton round with a little bit of product & cleanse my face for the day. At nighttime, Iíll apply it again after I wash my face & all of the oil & dirt that built up through the day really comes off. Itís also great the removing leftover foundation makeup that was remaining that washing my face didnít remove. I donít feel like my face is really fresh until I cleanse with this stuff.

I highly recommend this astringent if you have sensitive skin like me & need something that wonít over-dry your face. I removed one lipstick not because of the product or its effectiveness, but because of the overly-minty smell. Itís not bad, itís just overwhelming. Iím a prescription contact lens wearer with sensitive eyes & the smell irritates my eyes if overdone. If this didn't have fragrance I would definitely give it five lipsticks.

Note: Sensitive Skin Astringent isnít expensive at $3-4 at stores like Kmart, Walgreens, CVS, etc. but I pick it & Deep Clean Astringent up for $1 at Dollar Tree. Check your local dollar stores first!
