The best for my skin so far!!
I have a history of picking the wrong toner. If it didn't make me break out, it would be sticky or just not do anything. Ironically enough the only thing that seemed to work was an acne astringent. I've been wanting to try this because a clinique consultant recommended it, but I didn't buy due to its price. But a few weeks ago, I saw a nearly new bottle at a garage sale, so I bought it and gave it a shot. :) I'm so glad I did! First of all, my acne has gone down tremendously. I only get two to three pimples at a time now around my chin. This stuff works so well and has a nice mattifying feel. Literally, if I cleanse my hardest I'll still see left over dirt on the cotton ball after using this. If I'm lazy and just go for a quick swipe around my face, the cotton ball looks absolutely disgusting with how much crap has accumulated on my face in a day! This is the first toner to do anything close to that. The only reason I didn't give it 10 stars was because it has a very strong alcohol smell and irritates my eyes if the area isn't well ventilated. Also, I have to use a facial moisturizer afterward otherwise my face will feel too dry. So I say if you don't have sensitive skin, try this out!

If you have oily skin - run away!
I bought this because I thought that perhaps the oil minimizing toner would do that - minimize oil. I'm 20, so even though I do the best to exfoliate and cleanse with acne products, I usually have one to two small pimples on my face. I tried this product because I thought it would help cut down on the oil my face produced (my forehead makes my bangs look greasy by the end of the day) I tried the toner for a week, and started breaking out like no tomorrow, so stopped. Last week, I decided to try it again, thinking maybe it was just coincidence. Wrong. At the last day that I used it, I counted NINE pimples on my face! I felt disgusting. And of course, as soon as I stopped using the toner, my breakout went away. It's been a week since I stopped using it and I haven't gotten a new pimple since. So my take on the product: good if you don't have oily skin (which defeats the purpose of the toner). Also, I do have to admit that it made my face feel very smooth and nice after putting it on.
