The only toner that seems to have worked for me. I haven't had much luck with toners in the past as they normally dry my skin out and leave it a little bumpy and tight feeling. I don't tend to buy them anymore as I have had such bad experience in the past however tried this one due to it been cheaper to try the Liz Earle products in a set and this happened to be in the set. I don't know if it's the non alcohol factor that seems to make this toner different from the rest I've tried but it definitely seems to be working. Used in conjunction with the hot cloth cleanse and polish and the normal/ combination moisturiser twice a day my dry skin has become much more clear, smooth and bright. I have tried so many different products including rich creams, serums, oils and masks that all seem to promise to clear up dry skin but this line is the only thing that seems to work! The packaging is lovely and the products smell amaZing. They are also good for my sensitive skin and do not dry me out. They are on the pricey side however I find the line to be totally worth the money as they really seem to work. Really reccomend Liz Earle, lovely products!

Have been using this for 5 years and highly recommend!
I use the spray bottle version, which I prefer for moisturizing toners. Less wastefull than the cottonpad wipes which is best for exfoliating toners imo.
I use it at night before applying night oil, but can be used at am also.
Why I love it? Its not "another floral water mist" that simply smells good but does nothing for you. My skin is left plump and hydrated. I live in tropical climate so on days where its too hot for moisturizer on face, a spritz or two does the trick.
Can get a little sticky if you overdo it though... I think its the honey or aloe vera.
Best pro: THE PRICE, for 13£ you cant beat such great quality product.

The fragrance was overpowering and irritating. I am using this on my back in an effort to finish this. The spritzer packaging was good.

Difficult to get excited about a toner to be honest! Basically I'm in love with the cleanse and polish and I always like to use a matching toner. I use the spritzer bottle and I find it really refreshing! I like the scent - I find it quite subtle, not overpowering at all - and I've had no problems with irritation or sensitivity with any of the Liz Earle's products - possibly I've just been 'blinded by branding' but I'm under the impression that while it is scented it's all quite naturally derived- not chemically. I enjoy using it and I do I feel the toners last aaaaaages compared to the cleanser and moisturiser! I've been using for years and only rebought twice I think!

First up this toner is heavily fragranced so not great if you have sensitive skin. I bought the toner as part of a package deal with the cleanse and polish otherwise I probably wouldnt have purchased. The scent is pleasant and it felt nice on the skin however as toners go I didnt really feel like it did anything. I didnt notice any difference in my skin when I used it or stopped using it.

Overall whilst it smells nice and is refreshing its basically an expensive scented water. If thats what you are after there are much better and cheaper alternatives out there!

I have bought this tonic over and over again. It's great on your skin and a great price. I would recommend buying the spray version as it dosnt pour out like the bottle version. Otherwise your cotton wool is soaking with tonic and wasted you don't need that much. A very good all rounder toner, closes pores and takes off any left over makeup. I wouldn't use anything else.

One of the nicest toners I've found. I've since discovered pure Rosewater which is about the same price but for me easier to buy as I get individual bottles from Amazon. I'm usually disappointed by Liz Earle products but the toner is great for my sensitive/combo skin.

I use this mostly for spritzing my face after applying makeup to create a nice dewy natural finish. It is also good to have in my bag for a refresh throughout the day. It does remove makeup if applied to a cotton pad and wiped over the face so it has a few different uses. Overall I feel that this is a luxury rather than a necessary part if my daily routine. I will probably repurchase as it smells so nice!

This has a small, but important place in my routine. Smells heavenly and is great at removing left-over makeup after cleansing. I recently tried micellar water, but a quick swipe with this confirmed my fears that the micellar didn't remove everything. 4 lippies because it makes me oily so l only use it a couple of times a week - if my skin is flaky/dry/ rough. It sometimes leaves my skin feeling sticky.

I bought this recently after seeing it recommended on a Caroline Hirons post about toners. How I wish I had done some homework first! This toner is packed with fragrance, which research has shown is irritating and, potentially, damaging to skin.

As toners go, its OK it smells nice (well in truth it smells lovely!), but as mentioned about I am coming to realise what is good for my nose isnt really that good for my skin.

To be honest, other than the smell it doesnt seem to *do* anything special, and its not cheap really, so Id expect a bit more than a nice smell for my money. I dont really feel my skin is getting any particular benefits from this toner, over and about cheaper toners Ive used in the past.

Personally I havent experienced any signs of irritation through use of this toner (unlike the Cleanse and Polish, which is another matter) but the more I look into the issues around fragrance, the more I realise skin can be irritated, without actually showing any outward symptoms.

I do like the bottle this comes in the lack of a cap that has to be removed is a nice touch, but unfortunately Im not that keen on the product inside.

Due to the fragrance, and the lack-lustre performance, this definitely wont be a repurchase for me, in fact its unlikely Ill even use up the remainder of the bottle I currently have.
