I purchased this on a whim while I was at the EL counter with my mother. She was picking up cleanser for herself and the sales girl started talking about their toners. I didn't have any complaints from my current toner, but thought I would give this one a try because I wanted to buy something, lol.
I am so happy that I decided to buy this! I have combo skin (oily forehead, flaky around the cheeks and nose creases). When I used this product I didn't have an immediate "OMG! It's awesome" reaction. It did what a toner should do (picked up traces of whatever was left behind after a good washing). It did not burn, sting, or leave me with a tight, stripped feeling.
In my opinion, my skin didn't appear noticeably different. After applying, I used moisturizer and my bare minerals foundation as I normally do. Later, when I went out to do some errands and shopping, I kept receiving compliments on how beautiful I was. No joke!! This was coming from complete strangers; men and women, young and old. What a huge bump it was for my confidence :D!!
At the time, I couldn't understand why I would be receiving all of these compliments, and I asked myself what I might have done differently with my makeup, hair, or clothes. And then I realized it must be the toner. I asked my mother and hubby if I looked any different and their answers were both the same: I had a glow that isn't usually as evident.
So there you go. I will be buying this again. It could be coincidence, but I think not. I'll update later if I lose the glow. :)
