  • "Even though I get really oily throughout the day, my skin gets dehydrated really easily. I use this toner every day as it helps balance the pH levels of my skin along with hydrating it. I am also a huge fan of the fact that it doesn't have any alcohol in it (a big misconception/mistake to use products with alcohol in them for us acne prone skin types). The scent is also really nice. Love this!" in 226 reviews
  • "Sadly after looking at the price i figured to try and find a cheap alternative but after spending 100+ dollars trying to find a comparable product I decided to bite the bullet and buy a bottle, ive been using it for like 2 weeks and its made such a huge difference in my skin!" in 1 review

I have only tried a few different toners, but this is my favorite and the only one that has stuck with me. It was first introduced to me during a facial, in which I had to stop and ask the aesthetician what she was using because it smelled so good. The scent reminds me of peaches and grapefruit, and I literally love using this toner simply for the relaxing smell. I do have to say however, that you need to be careful when purchasing because the smell per bottle does vary--I once purchased a bottle in which the fruity smell was not present and it instead smelled strongly of alcohol, which was very unappealing. In terms of usage, I apply this toner every morning and night by spraying it onto a cotton pad and genlty wiping the pad all over my face. I found this application method better than directly spraying the prodcut onto the face.

I wasn’t a fan of this. It burnt/irritates my skin pretty badly when I used it. It contains witch hazel, which usually works great with my skin, as well as some fruit extracts, peach & cucumber (maybe some others I’m forgetting). I tried this out in place of my holy grail toner, the Clinique 1.0 twice a day exfoliating lotion, but this one just didn’t do it for me. To be fair, it did add some hydration back into the skin after cleansing as a toner should, especially since they call this their “hydrating toner” but for me the irritation isn’t worth it. I think it must be the added fragrance to this product that probably caused that burning sensation for me, but either way this product was a bit of a fail for me.

I got a facial a year ago and my aesthetician told me my goal was to hydrate, so I went on a hunt for "hydrating toner". I definitely did not know that was purpose of a toner-I have tried many a toners and nothing stands up to this. It is so gentle and hydrating, but cleanses your pores so well. I've bought this time and time again and will continue to use this in my skin care routine.

My only tiff: I appreciate the fact that it has a spray, and some times I do use it, but honestly, I take the top off and put it on a cotton pad. It may not last as long that way, but I just found that be less time consuming rather than waiting for the spray to settle.

Overall I'm super pleased with this product. The oil isn't greasy whatsoever. It says 2-3 drops will do the job, but I use way more (maybe 10?). Even though I've used quite a bit in just 6 days the bottle looks nearly untouched. It leaves a yellow/orange look to your face, so I usually put it on before bed. A little bit to dry spots during the daytime isn't too obvious, but that'll probably depend on your skin tone. Every morning I wake up and my skin feels INCREDIBLY soft and smoothed. I've struggled with intense acne for a good year or so now. I've easily invested a good couple hundred of dollars from high end to questionable companies. I love love love that this is animal friendly and so natural. I highly recommend this product and will continue to explore/ test this company's line of cosmetics. The one thing that aggravated me a bit was the fact I payed for one day shipping but it came in two days. Otherwise if you're questioning on wether or not to invest in this don't think about it too much. It's quality for it's price? AMAZING

One of my very first “high end” skincare purchases. I consider Murad more midrange, but $30 for a teenager is pretty expensive. I first started using this toner when I was 18 (I’m 23 now) and it’s an amazing product. It has a lovely peach fragrance and has a fine mist. I spray my face, pat in, and repeat the step for several layers. I also use it to refresh my face throughout the day.

I am in love with this toner. I have combination skin and have trouble balancing out my dryness and oil amount, but this toner made my skin feel refreshed without drying it out or moisturizing it too much to the point it felt oily. I would definitely buy again and I would recommend this product to anyone who deals with combination skin.

This toner is out of my budget but it was gifted to me along with the clarifying toner from murad But to be quite honest I feel like all toners work the same I am addicted to toner the second I wash my face I wipe it down with toner before putting on moisturizer I do the same as well It takes up all of the leftover make up that was left after washing your face and it really helps clarify the skin

I ordered this without ever trying it because I've loved all Murad products that I have tried.  I was not disappointed. It is hydrating with a light sweet grape seed oil smell that did not overwhelm me.  So if you are sensitive to scents, this is pretty light.  I'm using it as a refreshing mist throughout the day, not as a toner after cleansing although it can be used for a tonal as well.  I'm vey happy with my purchase, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a hydrating spritz

My mom actually showed me this and I love it! It does feel a little tacky for a while after applying, but I put on a moisturizer after it anyways. It kind of stung the first time I used it but I had exfoliated my face pretty well that day because it hasn’t done that since. I notice my skin texture is better and it makes me feel refreshed.

This toner stays on my desk at all times. It's there for whenever the day is done or after cleansing my face. It really helps balance the pH on ya face. I use this before I start a treatment and after if the treatment had a slight deying effect. I also LOOOVE the peach extract and it gives it a pleasent soft smell. VIVI APPROVED!

What is the best way to apply this toner? Do you spray on a cotton swab or round? Or just spritz directly onto the skin?
Is this a good toner for oily skin and if so where's best place to buy it?

I have acne problems so it's really hard for me to find a products that won't dry out my skin too much or give me some type of bad reaction. How well does this product work and will it dry out my skin?
