This is considered a toner but very different from any toner I have ever used. I can only describe it as a very watered down lotion, if that makes sense. It is white in color and makes your skin very soft. I have not been using this long enough to say that I notice a difference, especially since I use it with other Origin products in my skincare routine. I will say that it hasn’t caused any irritation, is not harsh, goes on smooth. My only complaint is the packaging. Wish it had a pump because I docnot want to use a cottonball to apply it bc it may soak up too much of the product. However, getting it out of the bottle without spilling or pouring too much is annoying. Overall, I would recommend this product to be added into your routine.
