So I read the reviews and thought this would be perfect for me. I have dry/dehydrated skin and if a product is not hydrating enough, my skin pulls and feels tight.
I bought the 400ml bottle for 30 euros seeing I was positive I would love it. Well, I don't.
I use toners/micellar water cleansers ALOT seeing I use them to take off all my make up after taking off my eye makeup with a separate cleanser, so that means about 7,8 cotton pads back and front if I don't use an oil cleanser beforehand. Then I use it again in the morning to take the night off to prep for my creams/makeup, so my toner or micellar water needs to be gentle, hydrating and effective.

This angered my skin incredibly! It flushes hot red every time I use it and leaves a burning sensation afterwards, so not very friendly for my skin at all! Just awful.
I prefer Garniers pink cap micellar water 1000 times over this!

It's also pretty gooey thus hard to spread on a cotton pad and I have to spread it with my fingertips.
Anyhow, I definitely do not like it and only have it on hand to use when I run out before purchasing my next toner. I think I will try Bioderma's hydrabio and A-derma's next, if they don't work out, will go back to garnier. (I have tried and used La Roche Posay, Vichy, Darphin, Avene and Roc, MAC but not that wowed anymore with them so stopped purchasing)

Hydrating, mild, live up to the standards but definitely not a life changing product. I have clear skin, finished a regular bottle and my skin is still the same. Never cause any breakouts.

It moisturizes efficiently but not VERY hydrating, If you have sensitive or normal skin, this can be a stable.

This is the best toner I have ever used. I would use this forever if I could afford it!

For me Lancome has always been a brand that uses cheap materials with expensive looking packaging/ name. Although this product looks nice and smells wonderful, the results are absolute garbage. What doesn't help is the $36 CAD price tag; thankfully, I was able to receive this for free from the Lancome counter with the purchase of a foundation. Yet another Lancome product has failed me...here is a more in-depth review on how I feel about this toner:

Pro-

1) Packaging: the soft-pink bottle etched with roses is absolutely divine and is highlighted even more with the milky-white toner inside. My small sample came with a pop-off top, but the normal sized container comes with a lid that twists off which is very convenient when flipping the container over to apply on your cotton pad.
Unfortunately, I don't give a ____ if a good product is in an unattractive container. Lancome, once again, has lured me in with packaging and a crap product.

2) Wonderful scent: yes, like the image on the front denotes it smells like roses. That being said, fragrance (as the ingredients have listed) is not skincare, nor will it ever be. For someone like me who has very sensitive skin, this can be a potential danger for irritation and breakouts...which it was....

Cons-

1) Ingredients: The second and third ingredients in this product are Butylene Glycol and Glycerin. Normally that wouldnt be a problem, but for someting that claims to be high-end and provide you with "pure and naturally beautiful skin," these are unacceptable ingredients.
Butylene Glycol while used as a humectant is also found in many household cleaners and detergents. It works wonderfully in keeping my laundry fresh and soft, but I don't want this anywhere near my face.
Glycerin is not a horrible ingredients, but when combined with other humectant's it can increase water loss by attracting water from the lower layers of skin (dermis) into the surface layers of skin (epidermis).
This toner also claims to be "unique skincare formula which is enriched with sweet almond extract and honey to leave skin feeling clean, soft and comfortable." While both ingredients are listed, they are so far down on the list that eating almonds and honey would probably be more beneficial.

2)Fragrance: like I mentioned before, anyone with sensitive skin should be very cautious when using products with fragrance as they can be highly irritating.

3) Acne: Immediately after using this product, I noticed a large pimple on the side of my nose, tiny pimples along my cheeks and chin, and redness around my mouth. I was so incredibly disappointed in the way this broke me out, not to mention the way it made my skin itchy. Initially when I applied this product I loved the wet and hydrating feel that it had as it made my skin incredibly plump, almost like an essence. I tried this again a few nights later and I had similar results.

4) Application: I applied this foundation to freshly cleansed skin with a cotton round. Unfortunately most of the product got sucked up by the round and none deposited on my face. The second time around, I applied the toner directly to my face, spread it around and wiped off the excess with a cotton ball. Thankfully the toner is thick enough to where you can slowly add drops to your face or hands. The texture is almost like un-set jello..not thin enough to be a fluid, but not thick enough to be a gel. The application was very difficult because of this.

5)Results: like i mentioned before, this product gave me a lot of acne and raised bumps. Now while I know it's my fault for using this on combo/oily skin, I found that my dry patches are where I gained the most acne/rashes. This product is definitely targeted for dry skin as it will clog up pores very quickly, but even for my dry areas this did nothing.

Overall: Garbage. Don't waste your money on a full size. I'm glad this worked for so many people, but if you have oily/combo/sensitive skin, please stay away....or at least go to sephora and get a small sample first.

I'm incredibly disappointed in Lancome.

Basic and HG toner! It has a natural smell of rose and feels like gel on my face and extra moisturising. I will definitely buy again when it runs out!

This is always my favor toner. Simple but good ingredient. Provide good amount of hydration without being sticky. Alcohol free! It also calm down redness (if it's due from minor irritation or dryness in winter).

I just don't like the way this company always raise their asking price. I'm trying to find a replacement with both lower/higher end. Nothing come close! There was an Asian (Taiwan) brand "Naruko". They do have very good toner but they aren't as easy to get, so I'm sticking with Tonique Confort. Always a safe bet for dry/sensitive skin :)!

Wonderful toner. I love how thick it is. It makes it feel more luxurious. I was really suffering from dry skin in my chin area and it fixed the problem almost immediately. Not to mention this stuff smells awesome.

This is an excellent option for sensitive or normal to dry skin. It has oils in it, so it differs from other toners that way. It feels hydrating which is great for the winter months here, even though my skin tends to be a bit oilier - I can still use this. My skin feels great after using it!

This is the second best toner I've used so far next to Tonique doucier. This one I only use during heavy winter months since I feel my skin gets so dry that it needs the moisture left in my skin by this toner. Highly recommend for normal skin during the worst of winter months.

I am now on my second bottle of this stuff, and I don't plan on stopping any time soon!

I recently went off Retin-A for my adult acne. My skin was an absolute mess from it...dry and flaky, despite following all of the "rules". I was trying anything and everything to get my skin calmed down and back to "normal". This Lancome Tonique came up in the results when I was doing a search for dry irritated skin. I purchased the smaller bottle for $25.

It is absolutely worth the price and much more. The moment it goes on your skin, it immediately has a cooling and comforting feeling.

I shake the bottle back and forth a few times to mix it up, and put it on a cotton round, and then apply generously to my face immediately after cleansing. It is so refreshing! It immediately calms the redness and irritation.

I apply once in the morning and before bed under my regular moisturizer. It works very well under my makeup, and I have no issues with it flaking or messing with my foundation.

With this and my moisturizer, my skin is close to be flake free. I highly recommend for anyone with dry and irritated skin!

Also, a little goes a long way! I use about a quarter size and it covers my face and neck!
