I have come to like this toner. At first it did slightly sting when used but I was having a couple breakouts and eczema outbreaks as well. (This was a bad reaction to a mask I used 😳) I stopped using it for a week, once my skin was healed I tried it again and have been using it for about 5 weeks now...... let me tell you, this toner really helps with redness on the skin. Usually my cheeks, nose and chin have a lot of redness, but after using this toner after 3 weeks I noticed my face was less red and I could see my freckles instead of a bunch of redness. I wouldn't say it's a quick thing. It will take time and consistency to see results. I have combo skin and this has worked for me pretty good. I use it in my day/night routine by drenching my skin with the toner and letting it completely dry. I put some in a mini bottle and when I need to refreshen up I use it and it hasn't disturbed my makeup. I can see why some people don't like it but if your skin isn't too sensitive and you have redness, you will love it too.
