Enhanced Witch Hazel Hydrating Toner With Rosewater by dickinsons

"I've never taken great care of my skin because I didn't think I needed to. I didn't have many breakouts growing up and I don't burn easily. Now that I'm 31 with kids, I have wrinkles, sagging, dull skin, and sun spots. Or HAD.My mother in law works for a plastic surgeon and she recently told me the most important step of a skincare routine is the toner. It preps the skin to be absorbant, so that the moisturizer you use next really penetrates your skin. I started using this toner as part of a morning and night routine, after cleansing with micellar water and before moisturizing. After only a few weeks, I swear my skin looks YEARS younger. I honestly believe that this toner has allowed the active ingredients of my moisturizer to work better on my skin. Plus, it has high quality skin ingredients like hyaluronic acid (the stuff injectible fillers are made of) which really help to plump the skin.I cannot recommend this toner enough. I wish I could find it a store near me! I received this bottle complimentary in exchange for my honest opinion. I will be purchasing once this runs out. « less" - walmart.com user

Pore Clarifying Toner by Saturday Skin

"I received this product complimentary from Saturday Skin. I honestly really like it. It has done a terrific job at smoothing out my skin overall, especially these stubborn rough, dry, flaky patches that I had on both of my cheeks, on either side of my nose. I had tried a manual exfoliant and also one of those chemical exfoliating masks that you leave on for 20 minutes in the past but they either didn't work at all on those patches or they'd only make it feel smooth for a few hours before it came back. I use this toner a few times a week, every other day, and those dry patches have not come back at all yet. It's also very noticeably reduced the size and appearance of the pores on my nose. My skin looks and feels much smoother. Watch out if you have any open sores on your face from acne or whatever though - if this comes in contact with broken skin like that it's going to burn like heck. Aside from that though there was no burning or tingling anywhere else. It hasn't made me break out at all. It has a very soft, subtle scent, it smells to me like a light lemony scent. It's very easy to apply, I just pour a few drops onto a cotton round, no rinsing or waiting required. It's a really good toner, I'd definitely recommend trying it." - sephora user

Soft Clean Silky Hydrating Lotion by Estée Lauder

"I have used this product for at least 12 years now except for the time it was discontinued. My sensitive skin is no longer irritated easily and really feels good. Now women around the world....we won the campaign to have Estée Lauder bring back this toner. Please join me in a campaign to bring back the Soft Clean Gentle Cleanser! I'm sitting here crying because I can't find it ANYWHERE! The air in Nevada is so dry I don't dare use water on my face; no foaming, wash off cleanser for this dry skin! " - Estée Lauder user

Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner by Youth to the People

"I received a complementary sample of this product prior to release, and the only thing I'm mad about is that I'll have to buy a new one when I run out. I LOVE this stuff. My skin LOVES it. I've been using it maybe once or twice a week for the past few weeks and I wake up with even-toned, noticeably smoother skin every time (I use it at night before bed. After cleansing, and before serums.) I always thought toners seemed like an unnecessary step, but I'm converted. I have combo/normal skin and this doesn't break me out OR dry me out, and the glow it gives me the morning after I use it is insane. Especially considering I have pretty textured skin from acne scarring. The results don't seem to be lasting, but I haven't been using it for very long, so I'm excited to see what my skin looks/feels like after I finish the bottle!" - sephora user

Seaweed Cleansing Lotion by mario badescu

"I'm the kind of person that likes to stick to sample sizes, so I can try a variety of products. However, I bought this one in full size last year (after having success with other mario badescu products) and I've actually used the entire thing! It lasted FOREVER; definitely worth the price, for the amount of product you get. For me, this product works best for cleansing your face more than once a day. I have sensitive, combination, very redness-prone skin (i used to have to apply ointment around my nose / mouth / under my eyes every night) and I decided to buy this because I was looking for something gentle and natural, but effective. It says the seaweed is exfoliating, but I think it's about the softest exfoliator I've ever tried. Even though I prefer stronger, that's part of what makes it good for twice-daily cleansing. And I've had 0 negative reactions / side effects from this, as far as I can tell. There's only two minor downsides; 1) the little seaweed chunks tend to accumulate around my sink if I don't wash them down the drain right away. and 2) once you get to the last quarter of the bottle, you have to start keeping it upside down. I'm at the stage where I'm wasting almost as much product as I'm using, just trying to get the last of it out. But even given that, it's still worth the money. Just a little annoying. I would totally recommend this and buy it again. I'm considering trying another Badescu cleanser this time around, but this product worked so well I'm not sure I want to leave it." - ulta user

Nu-Derm Toner by Obagi
4.8(297)$42

"I'm reviewing all the Obagi products I am now using - this is my 2nd review. You'll probably be able to tell which Obagi reviews belong to me, because they all begin with, "I LOVE THIS _____!!!!" :) Anyhow, I LOVE THIS TONER. I stopped using toner after the last toner I used (about 2-3 years ago) really harmed my skin. It was way too harsh, turned my skin beet red for months, and made my skin even MORE sensitive. It was awful. I was traumatize. Naturally, I was skeptical when I decided to try the Obagi Nu-Derm Toner but, I was so pleased with the Foaming Gel that I thought I'd give the Toner a chance. All I gotta say is, "Where has this Toner been all my life?!?" It's fabulous!! Gentle, gentle, gentle. My skin isn't red anymore, Hallelujah!! It smells wonderful, gives my skin that extra clean feeling after washing it, and tightens the pores. I highly recommend this toner. " - dermstore user

Re-Nutriv Softening Lotion by Estée Lauder

"I just finished up the bottle with the old-style lid (smaller in diameter). I have a special closet in the vanity area of my bthrm in which I keep extra Renutriv items in my special EL box! It is good to have new, spare Renutriv items when you run out (at a time the dept stores are not open)! I took a new lotion, and unwrapped the box. Right away, I noticed the new, larger-diameter lid. When I applied the lotion, I noticed the most lovely fragrance - It smelled so good, I wanted to put it on all over. Instead, I applied the Renutriv Body Creme on arms and legs - I discovered the body creme smooths out crepiness on arms and legs - incredible product! By the way, the Renutriv Hand Creme does the same thing for hands! Back to the lotion. The lotion smells wonderful; is soothing on red, irritated skin; soft; moisturizing; and does not burn, sting, or irritate. This is a lovely product which does an exceptional job on the skin. This is the only lotion I use." - nordstrom user

Perfectly Clean Fresh Balancing Lotion by Estée Lauder

"After cleansing your face, this toner feels so soothing and refreshing. Since the cleansers work so well, you don't need to use alot of toner. I use enough until my cotton round is not dirty anymore. After I use it, my skin isn't dry. It feels hydrated but it does crave moisturizer after a while. I can't use creamy products for dry skin on my face or I'll break out so with the Perfectly Clean Cleanser, Toner, and Daywear you're good to go. I would recommend these products for Sensitive, Normal, and Combination Skin. Dry Skin and Aging Skin would require more moisture. I love my new cleansing regimen. I was using acne products that dried out my face and made it sensitive but now my skin is hydrated, calm, and I'm not ashamed to be seen without makeup! " - Estée Lauder user

Witch Hazel Herbal Extract Toner by belif

"I recently had a bad experience with a toner. It was supposed to treat acne, but all it did was break me out worse than final exams. I almost wanted to give up on toners entirely. But once a beauty addict, always a beauty addict.I stumbled across this toner and one thing caught my eye: witch hazel. I have a bottle of drugstore witch hazel in my beauty closet at all times for its gentle acne fighting powers. I know this toner doesn't promise to help acne, but I figured if the base was a natural astringent, it wouldn't break me out worse than going to sleep in full coverage foundation.Thankfully, I was right. In fact, my expectations were exceeded. It didn't just not break me out. It helped with my acne. I'd always heard that moisturizing can help combat acne by making sure that your skin doesn't overproduce sebum, but I'd never seen real results until this toner. My skin has fewer breakouts, a more even tone, and less excessive oil.It's incredibly moisturizing and mild. I almost wanted to forgo moisturizer (no bad idea don't do that) because it left my skin feeling so soft and smooth. There's no chemical burn, no temporary redness. It just sinks deeply into your skin and transforms it.And it smells GREAT. Recently my housemates have been complimenting me after I do my routine on how great my face smells. I've used a lot of "great but stinky" products, but I belif I don't have to anymore. (See what I did there?) « less" - Sephora user

Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion by Clinique

"I've been fighting with acne since I entered 6th grade, when a lot of people didn't even have it. I'm now a junior in high school and still working with it. It really brings my already low confidence down even more, and it's so difficult to deal with. I always hated taking pictures, and sometimes didn't even want to go outside it would get so bad. I even got a prescription from a doctor for a special medicine. It worked a little bit, but most of the acne stayed, and it really just dried out my skin and made me peel horribly.A while ago my mom had a gift card and didn't find anything she wanted to buy, so she gave it to me. I bought some shoes then looked around for some makeup, I needed a new mascara and foundation. I discovered they had a Clinique in there and figured I might as well try it, no harm there. So I asked the lady for some foundation for acne, and ended up getting some. But what really suprised me was that she gave me a small sample bottle of this product and told me to use it, she said it'd help my acne a lot.I wasn't very trusting, as nothing else had ever worked for my skin before. But I might as well give it a try. The first thing I noticed was the smell, I loved it, it smelled so nice. I know you're only supposed to leave it on for five minutes, but since my acne was so bad, I decided to sleep in it. The next morning, all the little acne spots had disappeared and the big ones had gone down a lot and weren't so red! I was so excited, nothing had ever worked like this for me before. I slept in it again the next night and the next morning almost everything had disappeared. There was only two little acne spots left, I couldn't believe it! My skin felt so nice, and it didn't get super oily throughout the day like it usually did. I loved how it didn't irritate my skin and make it peel, really drying me out. It works great, and I'm so happy the lady was nice enough to give me a sample. I am definitely going back and buying a bottle of the stuff! This has been the only thing to ever work for me, and I still can't believe it. If you have acne and you've been through every possible medication and washes, try this. It will work.Thank you, Clinique, for making me feel beautiful. « less" - clinique.com user

Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer by Laneige

"This product has been incredibly nourishing to my skin and an amazing addition to my skincare routine. I started to experience eczema and cystic jawline acne last year, when I normally have fairly tamed combo skin. Under treatment of my dermatologist, he recommended adding more hydrating products to my routine to combat the effects of my medications. In steps this cream toner! I use about 4 shakes of product directly into my palms, warm it up, and press it into my skin after cleansing and exfoliating. Then I do a very thin layer of serum and moisturizer on top. Remember to layer your products in order of thickness, this is quite watery so it's the second step to my routine. I notice a huuuuge difference in the texture and overall plumpness of my skin with this product. While I'm still hydrated without it, this makes my skin velvety to the touch and smoother all around. I'd highly recommend this to anyone with chronically dry skin, flakiness or texture that's been tough to beat. Even when my skin was at its best a few years ago (and I was on a 900+ routine) it still wasn't as smooth as it is now. And I believe I owe the credit to adding this into my routine and the help of my doctor." - sephora user

Purete Thermale Perfecting Toner by vichy

"I received my Vichy mission:- Pureté Thermale 3 in 1 cleanser- Pureté Thermale Micellar cleansing wipes- Pureté Thermale waterproof eye make-up remover- Perfecting tonerI decided to compare the 3 cleanser against different make-up: Foundation, liquid eyeliner, cheek powder, mascara and black gothic lipstick.Pureté Thermale 3 in 1 cleanser :For this test, I used the cleanser with my hands only, no washcloth. It successfully removed all the makeup, but I had to scrub more than expected. Of course, it would have been easier with a washcloth but I wanted to try the cleanser by itself. I liked the feeling on my skin after I rinsed the product. It felt soft and hydrated. It truly is a 3 in 1 product and it smells goodPureté Thermale Micelair cleansing wipes :The wipes are very effective. It got rid of all the make-up within seconds, no need to scrub. After rinsing the skin, it felt clean. It felt like getting out of the shower. It smelled goodPureté Thermale waterproof eye make-up removerBecause this cleanser is oily and liquid, I used a tissue to apply it. The make-up was instantly gone. It took 1 sec at most. It’s very effective. However, you cannot use it alone because it leaves oil on the skin that need to be cleaned. It’s impressive over waterproof mascara, it removes it in no time. No scrubbing necessary.Perfecting tonerI did a face mask earlier that day and it left my skin a little bumpy. After applying the toner, the skin was smooth and the pores closed. I felt hydrated but it didn’t feel like I had something on my skin. This toner is my favourite.Conclusion:You cannot purchase the waterproof eye make-up remover alone, but it’s a must if you have waterproof makeup.If you don’t like cleaning washcloths or if you travel a lot, the wipes a very good. You would need a separate face cream.If you want a one step product, the 3-in-1 cleanser will not only clean your face, but also hydrate it. It’s your best choice if you are too lazy to put face cream after cleaning it (that’s me).The toner really makes a difference and it should be the last step of your routine. You instantly see the difference on your skin..#freeproduct #trywithtopbox #ad #freesample Less" - vichy.ca user

Supple Preparation Unscented Toner  by Klairs

"I'm new to K-Beauty, and as I began integrating new products purchased from SOKO Glam with products I already owned, I knew that my old go-to toner just wasn't cutting it. I have combo to dry, extremely sensitive skin with patches of eczema and persistent redness. This toner was a part of my second purchase, and man is it amazing! I don't sweep it on my face with a cotton round like my old toner; instead, I pat this into my face using the palms of my hands. It is SO hydrating! It is honestly very lovely to use, and it may be my favorite part of my routine because it is so soothing. I concentrate most of the product on my cheeks since I live in a very humid climate, and my makeup no longer feels tight on my cheeks anymore. I love that this product doesn't contain any essential oils, which can be sensitizing and irritate skin. Because the product itself is on the thicker side you don't need a lot of it for an application, making the 6 fl oz. bottle very generous. « less" - sokoglam.com user

Turnaround Revitalizing Lotion by Clinique

"**I did not receive a sample of this or reviewing for a sweepstakes even though it's trying to post that I did** I have sensitive, breakout prone and combination skin. Also starting to show first signs of slight aging... My face was a wreck trying Retin A (which I gave up on) and it had caused me dehydration, flakes, and very weird texture and visible fine lines. I believe the breakouts I was getting that in return had me prescribed Retin A, was from other lotions and products I was using. I decided to be nicer to my skin and start treating it more gently. I read about this on PC and decided to give it a try. I purchased this, PC Hydralight Toner, the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing GEL, Clinique Moisture Surge and the PC Resist SPF 30 and WOW!!! No breakouts!!!! Smooth skin!! AM: First I wash my face, tone with alcohol free toner, applied Clinique DM Gel, this Turnaround lotion, Moisture Surge, spf then makeup routine. My face and makeup has never looked so good!!! At night I used the same routine, minus the spf, and wake up with great skin! A couple of weeks ago I ran out of the moisturizing gel and moisture surge :( but still use this turnaround lotion every day and night and it's still working!!! It took a couple of months to see skin texture actually change but it really does!!! I can't believe it! I thought I was stuck with it. Just have patience and use this lotion every day and night and you'll see results!!!!!! Your skin will really turn brighter and more radiant and the texture will smooth out!!!! It also makes makeup apply more beautifully. I love this stuff I'm glad that I randomly came across it!!! If you have hormonal acne you'll still need to see a dermatologist to throw a good treatment for your skin type into your routine." - nordstrom user

Smoothing Toner by PCA Skin

"I just discoveed the PCA Skincare line, and I am thoroughly pleased. I *love* this skincare line!!! Love it. I recently purchased the Phaze I cleanser for oily skin, this Phaze 2 toner, the pumpkin toner and the mask. Each of the products has worked beautifully. I have combination (more oily), sensitive (get flushed/red very easily), blemish-prone skin. As you can imagine, it's very difficult to find skincare products that actually keep my skin clear but aren't too harsh. This toner is amazing - at first it stung a bit, but that was only the first few times. It actually shrunk the size of my pores - I kid you not. It also controls gives my skin a more matte look, and it's helped to reduce the frequency and intensity of my breakouts. I'm definitely getting this toner again, and would highly recommend it to anybody. " - dermstore user

MultiActive Toner by Dermalogica

"I love this toner. Not only does it help calm any redness, breakouts, or irritation on my face, I also use it on my legs and bikini area to calm razor burns. It works like a charm. My legs sometimes get a bad razor burn and if I spray this toner on my legs before moisturizing, it helps my legs recover much quicker. I even use this on sunburns. If you have a man in your life that shaves and needs a better "after shave", gift him this toner. I will always have this toner in my skincare routine even if I buy others for other purposes because this one is truly "multi-active"." - dermstore user

Absolue Premium Bx by Lancôme

"I went to a Lancome event and when they took my makeup off she thought I was having an allergic reaction. I had to explain that my face was always that red. We talked about my issues with sensitivity and how may anti-aging products would break me out. They went on and on about how dry my skin was, I was surprised because I would have said I had combo skin. In the end they recommended this product and my skin felt hydrated and comfortable after they put it on. I cringed at the price, I have never paid more than $60 for a cream, but I took it. After 2 days I knew I would never regret it. This cream is ultra-rich, but my makeup wears beautifully with no break down. My redness is already greatly reduced and I didn't have to conceal after foundation for the first time in years. Active hormonal break outs improved the first day and are quickly disappearing. This is probably an over-kill product for my age, but I don't care. I have tried approx 15 creams in the past 2 years and finally, this one works. « less" - Sephora user

Hydrating Face Tonic by Bobbi Brown Cosmetics

"I have an autoimmune disorder, one of the symptoms of this disease is the appearance of the characteristic "butterfly mask" on the face. This is an area of marked discoloration, pimples and rash extending from the forehead and includes the eyes, cheeks and chin. I am prescribed medication to treat the medical symptoms of these skin flares, they help but leave my face with enlarged pores, dark spots and an uneven, flaky drying skin tone and appearance. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Tonic is my remedy, for these problems. Within days it restores my skins natural hydration and calms the red, dry flaky appearance. I use the "Hydrating Face Tonic", with the SPF15 moisturizing skin lotion and within a month uneven discoloration also disappears. My skin has a healthy glow, I am 66 years old, have no obvious skin wrinkling and very little sagging. I usually wear very little make up. People tell me I have beautiful skin, and I do, despite having auto-immune disorder. I tell people Bobbi Brown skin care products are the primary reason. I have used these products for more than 15 yrs. ...donna" - nordstrom user

Aloe Vera Toner by mario badescu

"I have never been so in love with a toner! My skin is very sensitive, dry, and acne prone, and this toner targets all three brilliantly! I had given up on toners completely, every toner I had ever tried left my sensitive skin irritated, dry, made my skin burn, and would make my acne worse because of it. It had been years since I last used a toner, until about three months ago when I was in Ulta to repurchase the Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel, that I saw the Aloe Vera Toner. I was hesitant to try it, but convinced myself to buy it due my satisfaction of the enzyme cleansing gel. Oh. My. Gosh. This toner has transformed my skin to the point where I'm actually getting compliments on my skin from other people(something that has NEVER happened before)! Instead of irritating my skin, it soothes it, and does everything you want a toner to do all while being extremely gentle to my skin! It has also evened out my skin tone, minimized pores, helped prevent dryness and breakouts, and leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed! If you're looking for an amazing, non irritating toner, you NEED to try this product! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - ulta.com user

The Treatment Lotion by La Mer

"This product has totally changed the complexion of my skin! As a 21 year old guy, I have the usual problems like occasional mild acne and discomfort from shaving. I have used the La Mer Soft Creme for a while, and it has helped, but the Treatment Lotion was a whole new experience. It visibly improved the tone of my skin immediately after using, and it made the soft creme go on my face easier and more effectively. Red marks from previous acne blemishes have almost completely disappeared, my pores are smaller, and fine lines from morning fatigue are gone.La Mer recommends this before using their moisturizers, which I do, but on days that my skin is particularly oily, it works well as a moisturizer and shine controller.As a guy, my favorite thing about this product is the comfort it provides after shaving. No ingrown hairs either! A lot of the guys in my dorm have seen me using this product and now they are turned on to it too. Definitely recommend to everybody. « less" - Nordstrom user

Even Advanced Sea Kelp Facial Toner by alba

"I have extremely sensitive skin. When I use this daily it improves my skin, no little bumps, acne has cleared up but just make sure you dont get any on your lips by accident its nasty haha. I tried everything, I used Dr. Hauschka Clarifying toner and it helps but is expensive when i ran out I wanted to check if there was a natural alternative but still as effective. This was much cheaper, and interesting enough it is more effective. I see better results with this. I do notice that if I skip just one day it matters, so keep on a habitual cleaning with cleanser, toner and a moisturizer and you should be good to go. But everyones skin is different but I gave it a month to see any effects and it cleared it up in a week. its a small bottle so I saved my Dr. Hauschka spray toner bottle, washed it out and I poured the alba toner in that, I spray it onto my skin and press in gentle wave movements and it lasts a lot longer! and I dont have to worry about puffs from cotton balls getting stuck to my face etc :) oh it does dry out your face though so be ready with your moisturizer once it dries. I will always buy this stuff! love it :) « less" - drugstore.com user

"I have struggled with acne for more than 10 years. I have changed my eating habits, taken vitamins, tried countless products, prescriptions, and doctors. About 3 years ago I went all natural with my eating and skin care. This sorta helped but did not clear my acne. Literally, nothing seemed to work. Then about a month ago I stumbled upon Derma e at my local Whole Foods. Since then I have returned about 4 times for different products. ALL of which I love. My acne is actually clearing up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For the first time ever!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so freaking excited. So the things that I use are as follows- 1. Very Clear cleanser and toner 2. Anti-wrinkle Cleanser and toner 3. Over night peel4. Microdermabrasion scrub 5. Anti-wrinkle Glycolic mask and 6. Very clear acne spot treatment. I know it sounds like a random mix but it is what is working for me. These are great products with actual results that don't have harmful ingredients:) Less" - myshopify.com/dermae user

Facial Toner by Dr. Hauschka

"Love this product. It tones my skin and does not dry out my skin. I use it twice a day after both cleanses morning and night. Other facial toners are often drying, sometimes leave a sticky surface and contain ingredients that I do not want to put on my skin. I prefer this facial toner to the clarifying toner, it seems to hydrate and, overall, suite my aging skin best.So happy that LovelySkin is carrying more Dr Hauschka because I love their products and LovelySkin too, so it makes a winning combination.Very happy with this product and how it makes my skin feel!

Peach Sake Toner by Skinfood

"I'll start off saying this...I have no idea how to be a girl. I'm a 34 year old freckle faced, pale skinned, ginger woman who has never learned how to take care of my skin, hair, or even put on makeup properly. The only skin care routine I've ever had was avoid the sun and wash my face with whatever soap I had in the shower. I am fortunate enough to look younger than my age but the skin on my face has started to look rough over the past couple years due to sunburns and my pores remind me of craters on the moon. Ok, maybe they aren't as bad as that but they have gotten bigger and my skin has gotten this dull dirty look to it that I can't stand. Anyway, I bought this toner yesterday after researching about 50 different kinds. I washed my face soap and water (nothing special), patted dry, put some Peach sake toner on a cotton ball and put it all over my face. First thing I noticed was the smell. It smells AMAZING. Sweet, light peach scent. Not too strong but definitely enough to make you go "mmmmm that smells great". Second thing I noticed was all the nastiness on the cotton ball that I hadn't gotten off my face when I washed it. Third thing was my skin was WAY brighter, not shinier, brighter. My skin tone was even, healthier looking, cleaner. I'll go with the term whiter, because for a pale girl that's exactly what it did for me. It whitened and brightened my skin which is a great thing and exactly what I needed. Fourth, the dreaded pores....they were legit smaller. The pores on my nose and my cheeks were much MUCH smaller. Maybe this is what all toners do, maybe not? I dunno. I was so thrilled that I thought maybe I was fooling myself so I used it on my boyfriend and it made his face look better and made his pores smaller. He wasn't too thrilled about it but I was. Lol So, now I'm hooked on this stuff. I woke up this morning and my skin still looked pretty darn good. I washed my face, used the toner again and BAM! My skin looks even better now." - ulta user

Tea Tree & Willow Clarifying Astringent by 100% pure

"The Tea Tree and Willow Astringent has exceeded my expectations! I'd say I had moderate acne (mostly cystic and with some texture issues). I saw a significant difference within a week. My skin is so smooth now and I no longer get those tiny, hard bumps. It definitely feels more plump as well! The cystic acne has calmed, so not only have the cysts healed faster, but the frequency of the breakouts have reduced. It does leave my face sticky, even after putting on moisturizer, but I don't mind. The tackiness makes it a great primer on my makeup days (bonus!). The packaging is very lux looking, but the pump sticks sometimes. Again, I don't mind, but I wouldn't be mad at a redesign. Overall, I LOVE this product and will DEFINITELY repurchase when I run out! " - 100percentpure.com user

The first time I used this instead of my regular toner, I noticed a difference! My skin felt softer and a little smoother.

I have sensitive, and oily skin and this helped me deal with my large pores and even my skin. Love this product!!! " - glamglow.co.uk user

Bright Dew Skin Toner by Laneige

"This has thousands of great reviews, but I still wanted to leave one from someone with super oily skin since it is marketed towards dry skin. So many products say “for all skin types” but this is the one product I have tried and truly believe it is a miracle for all skin types.I love this toner. I thought as it got warmer I wouldn’t be repurchasing, but after a few days I realized I needed her back in my life. It’s the heaviest toner I have ever used, but it is still a toner. So it’s really nourishing yet lightweight making it perfect for all skin types.Even with my oily skin, I still do not use this as just a moisturizer most of the time. If I’m in a rush or super tired and just want to go to bed without doing a whole skincare routine I will just use this after washing my face. But for daily use I use a lighter toner with a cotton pad to get any gunk off my face washing may have missed, then dump some of the Laneige cream skin in my hands and pat on my face. Then I follow up with any serums and a lightweight moisturizer.Since I use this after a lighter toner, you’d think it’s not needed. Which is what I thought too. But without it I notice a huge difference in my skin. Props to the formulators for this one.Sometimes in the winter my skin gets dehydrated and this is perfect to layer up and feel nourished instead of layering up with a heavier moisturizer that will just make me greasy.Also I can have really sensitive skin and this never made me break out. I will repurchase again and again. If you haven’t tried it, please do. Less" - Sephora user

Rehydrating Ginseng Toner by Elemis

"At my age, most toners dry my skin out. This one never does, but it leaves it feeling refreshed and clean. It helps close the pores without making your skin feel like stretched saran wrap and it is not irritating in areas that may be broken out. It is a great, balanced toner. " - Beauty.com user

Aloe Calming Toner by The Body Shop

"To start off I found the body shop through an app called goodguide. I'm currently taking hormones and my acne was out of control. I've never had horrible acne, just mild and in occasion. And this product, along with the aloe day cream, and aloe facial scrub (comes in a tube) had done me wonders. Instead of getting their acne line which according to goodguide was good, it told me that their aloe line was the best choice. the toner really calms your face with the redness and once I apply all three products, I can't stop staring at how nice and glowing my face is. I've tried many products even proactiv and this gave me results within the first day." - thebodyshop-usa.com user

Visible Difference Skin Balancing Lotion SPF 15 by Elizabeth Arden

"I have only been using this product for a couple of weeks, but so far I have found it delightful. It is rich, but goes on smoothly, sinks in quickly and leaves an iridescent shimmer and a tingly fresh feeling. It allows for a lovely massage to the skin and my neck feels far more nourished since using. I am not sure how effective on wrinkles it is due to the short period of use, but the tone of my skin has already improved so believe with continued use it could well have an impact. I would recommend if you have the money to splash on your skin - a little goes a long way, so should last a good while. Looks pretty swish on the bathroom shelf, too, with its shiny packaging...

Centella Water Alcohol-Free Toner by cosrx

"I tried out this toner because it is said to be good for acne prone skin. It comes in a bottle with a spray dispenser so it is very easy and quick to apply to the skin. It leaves my skin hydrated and absorbs well into the skin. My only problem with this product is that I didnt really see a difference in my skin. However, be that as it may, I did not break out from this product, which is a win to me. I would recommend this product if youre looking for hydration or a quick, on the go toner that can be reapplied throughout the day. " - ebay.com user

C Rx System C-Balancing Toner by Obagi

"I love the serum .i have been using it for several years and it has really improved the overall appearance of my skin, people have commented about how healthy and glowing my skin looks. The serum has also brightened my skin.. The cleansing gel is wonderful without drying out my skin. The exfoliating day lotion is really light and does not make my skin feel greasy. Just soft and supple. The night lotion is very good. I only suggest applying it on damp skin so it is easier to apply all over. These products have improved the firmness of my skin. And I am in my late 50's. I highly recommend this whole kit. The kit includes full size products and using daily will last me 4 to 5months. I highly recommend this product. My dermatologist sold me this proct line first. That is why I am so confident . The kit price is great" - dermstore user

Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner by Clarins

"I bought this because of the fruit acids it contains. I read in a magazine that AHAs were the right thing to use to try to get rid of those irritating white spots that clog your pores. I suddenly developed these on my cheeks a couple of years ago and nothing I did seemed to shift them. I tried this product and used it as per instructions (once or twice a week) but it didn't make any difference. I THEN DECIDED TO USE IT EVERY DAY AND .............IT WORKS! I have combination skin. It may be too harsh to use it daily on dry skin. Clarins also warn against using the product if planning to sun bathe. (I live in Scotland: sun exposure is not a problem!) I will continue to use this product. It's magic! The texture at first is rather surprising. I expect a toner to feel refreshing. This isn't. It is thick and gloopy and feels very sticky. However, it dries very quickly and does not leave a residue. I only use it at night. I tried it once in the morning, but as I wear foundation most days, it was not a good idea. Makeup tends to flake off. I suspect that twice a day might be too much anyway. If you are looking for a result, this is it. I can't believe how much my skin has improved. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Escentual user

4-in-1 Essential Face Tonic by Ursa Major Skincare

"I was happy to see that Well.ca carried Ursa Major products: it's probably the easiest way to get this line in Canada if, like me, you're not near a store that carries it. While this is the first time I bought the tonic from Well.ca, I have been using it everyday as a toner for my sensitive/normal to dry skin for several months now, and I really notice a difference. My friends comment on how nice my skin looks. I can't say I notice, so I'll have to take their word for it. What I really notice, however, is, first, after shaving: I have a really coarse beard, and the tonic really helps to alleviate the irritation to my sensitive, and in-grown hairs have actually stopped altogether, likely due to the tonic's exfoliating property. Second, the tonic just really soothes and tones my skin in general, likely because the first ingredient is aloe juice, not just water: my face is markedly happier after using the tonic. The scent is also great, a really nice herbal aroma. Less" - well.ca user

Aqua Bomb Hydrating Toner by belif

"I find this toner very hydrating! It does what it says it’s here to do and I can’t complain about how it makes my skin look. On an average day after washing my face, my skin tends to feel tight and dry. After using this toner my skin looks so luminous and “fresh” I love it. The consistency is a little different than some toners I’ve used. When I apply with my hands it leaves a sticky-ish feeling to my hands so if that bothers you, I’d suggest using cotton pads. It has a light smell to it not bad or chemically like other toners I’ve tried. The price pin can be a tad steep for some, but when seeing the results, especially for the combo and normal to dry skin people, it’s worth it. I got to try this product complimentary, but I’d definitely recommend to friends and family." - sephora user

Extra Comfort Toning Lotion by Clarins

"After reading lots of helpful reviews on this product, I decided to buy it and give it a go myself. I am nearly 20, have very sensitive skin that can be very dry on the t-zone. I have never used a toner before due to the fact that 'toner' on my senstive skin just sounds like it would not do me any justice and make my skin very red. However I couldn't have been more wrong, this toner is very refreshing and gentle on my skin, it makes it look and feel soft, which has made me more confident about my skin as I have a few break outs now and then! Even if I have a spot and use this and somehow it makes it appear smaller! And after spending lots of money on skin care that just does not work, this is fantastic! I use this every morning after extra comfort cleansing cream and before gentle day cream, they work so well together and I would recommend to anyone with sensitive or/and dry skin. Also fab before make up! Also I could not fault the debenhams delivery service, even with the olympic torch weekend. Very very fast delivery and I also recieved a sample of perfume I was not expecting. This plus extra beauty card points had made this order all worthwhile! Very happy! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-1537221007142943223-full" data-show="-1537221007142943223-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Debenhams user

Moisture Prep Toning Lotion by Benefit

"I had been looking for a great toner that didn't dry out my skin, and I felt like I had tried them all, in all price ranges. I had previously bought the B.Right Total Moisturizing lotion and had loved it, and decided to give this part of Benefit's skin care line a try. After the first use, I was hooked. I tend to use it after my shower, before putting on moisturizer. From the first day, I felt like my skin was brighter and more even-toned. I love that this does not dry out your skin or leave you with that "tight" feeling. Also, I have Rosacea, and this product did not irritate my skin at all. Other toners have left it irritated and red, but not this one. In fact, I feel like the redness has gone down with continual use! The only con I can think of is that it is a bit pricey for how much you get. The packaging is beautiful, but it's a deceiving bottle that looks like it holds way more than it actually does. I have had my toner for about a month now, and I'm sad to see it going so quickly! Overall, a great toner that works well for sensitive and dry skin. I highly recommend it! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - ulta.com user

Special Cucumber Lotion by mario badescu

"I love this toner and can not be without it. This is probably my 5th or 6th bottle since i discovered this brand and product. I ran out and didn't have a chance to restock for awhile and noticed how clogged up my pores became. This takes all that junk out. After you wash your face and use this you would be amazed at all the stuff you see on the cotton ball! This lotion removes every last bit of makeup and dirt without stripping your skin. I have combination skin, more oily in the summer, that is also acne-prone and sensitive. This lotion balances my skin and seems to shrink my pores. My skin tone and texture improves greatly when i use this product. I also use the alpha grapefruit cleansing lotion from this line and love that one too! I recommend that toner for those that need more exfoliation and have discoloration or pigmentation issues. That toner helps reduces my acne scars significantly! I recently picked up both toners and enzyme cleansing gel when i had a coupon on mario badescu products, very rare btw. I switch b.w the 2 toners and use the enzyme cleansing gel as my regular cleanser and the foaming gylcolic cleanser about twice a week(what my skin can tolerate bc it is very drying for me) and my skin has become soo much better, clearing up my acne greatly. I'm going to stick with this routine and make sure i dont run out of this toner again! This skin care line is amazing and i highly recommend his products, esp if you have sensitive skin like i do. I have found products that work without irritating my skin :)" - ulta user

Botanical Grapefruit Toning Lotion by Sisley

"I recently went in too rough with my Alpha Beta Peels and I woke up with red, dry circular patches. They keep flaking and new skin forms that sloughs off again. I have not messed with them and I have been very careful not to make them more MAD. Well, I happen to be running low on my La Mer toner and decided to try Sisley because of the alcohol free element, and I am so glad I did. I used it last night and the next morning, my red patches have calmed down about 75%. I have had them for over a month and they would not go away. All I can say is I found a keeper and I should have purchased this sooner!!! I do not know what ingredient healed me, maybe the cornflower? But this is a miraculous little tonic I will never be without since my skin is super sensitive." - nordstrom user

Aloe Vera Complexion Toner & Freshener by earth science naturals

"I am not familiar with facial toner as a whole since this is my first one so I don't have anything to compare this to.That being said, I'm pretty satisfied with this. The bottle says it's for dry/sensitive skin, neither of which I have, yet this works for me. It's pretty moisturizing, surprisingly, but doesn't leave your skin greasy or oily AT ALL. And, it's very gentle on the skin; it's like putting nothing on at all, yet, it leaves your skin feeling really soft and conditioned. Sometimes, after using this, I don't even PUT moisturizer on, and I'm fine. And when I do, my skin isn't overly greasy or oily. This product has an amazing moisture balance quality.It's a pretty big bottle so it lasts a while.The only thing I DON'T like about this product is the fragrance; it smells a little like roses to me, which I abhor the scent of. Though, it's not TOO strong and does dissipate. As another reviewer who had a problem with the smell stated, I, too, am probably a little more sensitive to smell than most. But, if you DO have a hard time with scents, you may want to pass this product by. « less" - Vitacost user
