Burt’s Bees Brightening Refining Tonic really brightens the skin. It’s not necessarily a toner but a great product to use right after cleansing for a refreshening effect. It also definitely brightens skin after continued use. It feels nice on cold winter mornings.

I love this toner. At night after I remove my makeup, and in the morning before I put any cream/makeup on, I use this toner. No matter how clean I think my face is, after I use this stuff, I still see traces of dirt/oil. I also feel like my complexion is better.

Of the two Burt’s bees toners I have used & utterly loved THIS one takes the cake & has been purchased by me over & over & over again and I’ll never allow myself to not use a toner again I don’t know what my life was before I was using it.

I started using this about a year ago and I really really like it! It is the only toner I have tried that doesn’t sting or slightly burn my face when I use it, and doesn’t leave it feeling dry or “tight.” I don’t think it is technically alcohol free, but it must have a very small amount because it is similar to alcohol-free toners I have tried in terms of it leaving the skin’s moisture, but the additional “natural” ingredients it contains (some patented blend of plant/seed products) help gently remove any remaining dirt/oil/makeup residue on your skin and slightly exfoliates, leaving your skin much smoother. It is slightly more expensive than other drugstore products, but Burt’s Bee’s is known for their natural products and contains less chemicals than other brands, plus I think they are cruelty free. I have repurchased it twice because I really like how it makes my skin smoother while not having the characteristic “burning/tingling” sensation that similar products have. It also has never left my skin dehydrated where I felt like I need to immediately moisturize, which others have in the past. Overall it is a great product for skin care- they are not just a lip balm selling brand!

I really get a kick out of using this product line. While many don't feel they stack up against more designer lines, I feel they are making a "buzzzzz"! 🐝 The brightening line is a seriously effective alternative. The line offers a superior range of ingredients, while not stinging you with inflated prices & promises. The products smell divine, never greasy or soo thick they just sit on skin surface & they do a pretty super job of skin care! Just like the petals of a flower skin is delicate & any type of harmful ingredients can cause dull, patchy or or irritation. So if you & your wallet need a break from the big bads, fly yourself to Burt's Bees, you'll find it sticks with you! 😄

This toner is amazing! My skin looks visibly smoother and has fewer bumps since I started using it. I have mixed t-zone and dry skin but I haven’t been struggling with dry patches while using this toner. I’ve used it with both moisturizers and light oils (since its winter) and they both work well with this product. It smells very fresh too but not overbearing. Price was also right when I bought it but I think it was $14 originally (i’m on the fence about whether I would spend that much). I never used toners religiously before this product but now I’m a convert

I used this product when I was at my lowest. I felt that my acne scarring was the only thing holding me back from displaying my entire potential. I have always had self esteem issues but they seem to overcharge when I have multiple acne spots and scars from pimples I have popped and scabs I continued to pick at. This product made a slight difference in my skin complexion and slightly brightened my acne scarring but using the entire line of the Burt's Bees Brightening line is sure to clear up more than just a little.

I've been looking for a tonic that is both great and affordable, so when I was strolling around Walgreens, I found this baby! It smells like the flower daisy, gentle on your skin, and gives it a soft touch. I'm glad I included this tonic into my morning/night facial cleansing routine. After weeks of using it, I see it does make my face look more radiant than ever. Will buy more after it runs out. <3

I absolutely love this stuff! I can wash my face to the point where it should be completely dirt free and then put some of this on a cotton round and rub it on my face. It never fails, this toner STILL finds dirt and oil and the cotton round is light to dark gray when I'm done. When I use this toner, I know my face is CLEAN.

I love Burt's bees toner!!! It's one of my beauty essentials. Doesn't have that harsh chemical smell most toners have. Very gentle on my skin. After a few weeks I definitely noticed a more even skin tone and this product was the only new thing I had introduced into my routine. Will definitely continue using this!

Does this make anyone else's face tingle after applying? I have super sensitive and dry skin? I am not sure if I need to stop using it or not.

Can I use this product at night? I've never used a toner before and am wondering if I can just use it at night after washing and then can you use face lotion afterwards? Thank youuu  Burt's Bees Brightening Refining Tonic
