What is the difference between the CALM Nourishing Milky Toner and other Paula's Choice Toners?
While all Paula's Choice toners are fragrance-free and loaded with antioxidants, replenishing, restoring and soothing ingredients, the CALM Nourishing Milky Toner was specifically formulated for those with reddened, sensitive or compromised skin. It hydrates and eases discomfort while also addressing the first signs of aging.
What's the difference between the CALM Nourishing Milky Toner and the SKIN RECOVERY Enriched Calming Toner?
The CALM Nourishing Milky Toner is a specialized formula that offers a robust list of ingredients that soothes, restores skin's barrier and visibly reduces redness and sensitivity. Suitable for all skin types, this toner helps to strengthen skin's barrier, so it becomes less reactive over time. The SKIN RECOVERY Enriched Calming Toner is a great option for those whose primary concern is dry to very dry skin with minor signs of visible aging. It's a milky, hydrating formula with additional non-fragrant plant oils and emollients help to nourish and eliminate dry, flaky skin.
Can I use the CALM Nourishing Milky Toner if I have blemish-prone skin?
Yes, the CALM Nourishing Milky toner is a great option for those with oily + acne-prone skin and can be used as a toner or liquid moisturizer. The panthenol, marshmallow (Althaea officinalis) root and Ophiopogon japonicus root extract help improve skin’s barrier and reduce irritation. Additionally, it contains clinical levels of allantoin which can help fade signs of post-blemish marks.
My skin stays red after cleansing, will the CALM Nourishing Milky Toner instantly reduce the redness in my skin?
Yes, the CALM Nourishing Milky Toner can help visibly reduce redness, assuming you're using a fragrance-free, skin-softening, water-soluble cleanser along with tepid (not too hot or cold) water first. On application, this toner will immediately replenish skin and deliver skin-strengthening and calming ingredients that soothe redness and irritation. With continued use, redness will continue to decrease.
