What else you need to know:
During his struggle with cystic acne, Ole tried many astringent toners that left his skin feeling stripped. He was challenged to create his own version that delivered powerful results, but with a more comfortable, balanced feel.
This toner features Ole Henriksen’s Green Fusion Complex™, a proprietary blend of potent active botanicals—including green tea, eucalyptus, algae (kelp), and Irish moss extracts—with natural antiseptic properties to help absorb excess oil and refine pores.

I deducted 1 star because of the initial adjustment period. This product makes people think it won't work for them initially, when it probably would if they would just stick with it for a bit. Just like acne meds and birth control, your body needs to get used to a new introduction sometimes.
