Go-to morning toner

It has a milky consistency but still very watery. I have combination skin and it still provides hydration without being too oily. Love the fact that it doesn't contain essential oils or fragrances, so I can just slather it on without any concern. I use it in the morning after cleansing followed with a serum and sunscreen. So far it's great.


Fantastic Even For Combination Oily Skin

Such a wonderful, refreshing and calming toner! Although it's suppose to be for Normal to Dry skin types, this toners works like a charm for my sensitized combination oily skin. I was suffering from redness, breakouts and surface dehydration. It's a milky white liquid and runny like water. I pat it on (sometimes once or twice depending on how luxurious I want to feel) and it soothes, comforts and calms my skin. It's like a hug for my skin. It feels lightweight but it certainly packs a punch. I use it after cleansing and before exfoliation (also PC products). This toner has wonderful ingredients. I know from a previous product experience (not from PC) that Borage Seed Oil and Evening Primrose Oil is suitable for combination skin so I wasn't afraid to purchase and use this toner. It doesn't have fragrance but it has a light scent that I find quite comforting. Love this toner!!

Excellent product

This product works very well! I noticed results immediately and you do not have to use a lot, a little goes a long way. It calmed my redness and help hydrate my skin without making it feel greasy or heavy!
