This is the best toner I've ever tried! I love it so much. It works really well, and helps balance my skin, and fights blemishes! I often find toners too harsh, but this one is perfect, and doesn't cause irritation. I 100% would recommend this to those looking for a cheap but sensitive toner!

Good for quickly drying out t zone, but I wouldn't use it day to day or else it would dry your face up too much. It makes your skin feel very tight after using, and though some may like that feeling I don't enjoy it as much. It did a good job of reducing oil but no significant changes in acne

Although this toner gives a cool feeling to the skin, it does leave residue on my skin and has a sticky feeling after it dries. The smell is like any traditional astringent, I've worn it under makeup but notice it caused my moisturizer to not blend in as well so I only use it at night. So if you don't mind a sticky feeling afterwards, I'd recommend!

This stuff is AMAZING! I've had problems with acne all my life and this is the only toner I've used that's actually ever done anything. It doesn't dry out my skin like most toners do and it actually helps with breakouts. I would recommend this product to everyone who has issues with their skin!

I was an apricot scrub girl for many years, and it wreaked havoc on skin, but after I turned thirty I really started to have concerns about the look of my skin. A dermatologist recommended ditching the scrubs for a toner because chemical exfoliation is often better for sensitive skin. I have been using this product for about six months and I can see a remarkable difference in tone and clarity, and oil control. I also love the scent and the fresh feeling I get after I use it.

Yes just yes! I love this toner when my skin is acting up, it just works so well and actually treats acne. I don't use this everyday because I'm afraid of it drying my skin out but I do use this when I feel I'm about to break out or when it's getting close to that special time of the month!

I love love love this toner! During the summer time I like to use this because it leaves my face and neck feeling fresh and smelling like cucumber. The only cons about this product is that it leaves my skin feeling a bit oily and that is why I gave it only a 4 stars.

This was a really good product when I broke out in middle school to control and bring down my clogged pores. It has cucumber extract which I really like because it creates this stinging sensation which tells me that it’s working and within just a week of using it made my skin and pores feel so much better. I highly recommend it for anyone who is struggling with acne or just has a little here and there. Neutrogena® Oil-Free Acne Stress Control® Triple-Action Toner

I purchased this toner because of the advertised acne stress control benefits. When I say my skin reacts to stress, I mean my face blows up like a prepubescent teen 😑. This toner, along with my other skin care routine products, has helped clear up my adult acne and prevent new breakouts from forming. My face is definetly refreshed after each use, and I have beautiful again!!! Absolutely recommend this!! ☺

What if you don't break out but have medium to large pores? Does it make you skin more sensitive? Minimizesvpores?
