Why: "For years I have been searching for the perfect toner and I finally found it! It makes my skin feel near perfect and it changed my skin from oily, acne, and irritated to dewy, clear, smooth, and perfect! Well worth the investment!" one reader exclaims. Another says, this toner "restores the pH balance in the skin" and is "even great after sunburn [since] it's so calming, it just takes the stinging and tightness right out." Women say "it is refreshing, has no harsh chemicals or smells, and soothes my sensitive skin." For an avid user, "if I run out of this product, I can notice a change in my skin within a couple of days. It starts to look dull and just doesn't feel right," so it's a "great toner even if you don't use the complete Obagi system."
