Overall a nice toner. Lightly moisturising, nothing crazy. Was okay for my sensitive skin. It isn't great at removing makeup (not that I'd expect it to be) but it's fine as a quick morning cleanse...

As in all Paula’s choice toner that I have tried, there are something in this toner that irritates my skin slightly. Finished the whole bottle and will not repurchase. Toner is definitely...

A caveat about me: I am not a daily toner user and this is not so life changing that it has turned me into one. If it had been that good, I would have given it five lippies. However, I do like to...

When I first tried this toner, I thought this is it... HG... but a half an hour later my skin was as red as a tomato. I was really sad, because I loved the hydrating texture of this toner. This is...

I tried nearly every Paula's Choice toner, and Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner has been the one I keep going back to. It is a water-weight translucent liquid with a mild, natural (but...

I'm on my third bottle, and I've been using it for maybe 11 months now. I use it both morning and evening, followed by Paula's Choice BHA 2% and some BB or CC cream. For reference, I have mild...
