Disappointed in product, absolutely will not buy again

      Interesting. I submitted a review last week and it has not been posted. Short story this toner is unlike any toner I have used in the past. It is heavy and does not leave my face feeling clean. I developed an amazing number of whiteheads using this product and had to get a facial to rid myself of them. I have been using Paula's Choice products for years and have not needed facials until using this product. I have since switched to a toner from another company. I did speak with a Paula's Choice rep who convinced me to order the normal oily toner, which I did, but I am reluctant to use it. I absolutely would not recommend this product.

      Clogged pores and caused numerous whiteheads

          I have used Paula's Choice skin care products for a number of years. I have combination normal/oily skin, more so normal after number of years using good products. Prior to me using the Redness Relief toner normal to dry skin I had been using the Moisture Boost Toner which worked very well for me. Unfortunately Paula's Choice discontinued that product and replaced it with the Redness Relief line. When I ran out of my toner I ordered Redness Relief, I started using it about 4 weeks ago. Right away I was surprised by the consistency, it was thicker and looked oily to me. Since using the product as a toner twice a day my skin has developed large amounts of whiteheads, so many in fact I had to go to an estethician for a facial and removal of the whiteheads. I have not gone for a facial for at least 4 years as my skin was so smooth and clear from using Paula's Choice products. After the facial I got an Eminience toner I had used in the past and my face feels clean again. I am very disappointed that Paula's Choice discontinued the Moisture Boost toner and replaced it with the Redness Relief line. I do not recommend this product. Last week I spoke with a Paula's Choice representative who suggested I try Redness Relief normal to oily, I did order it but am reluctant to use it at this time.

            I would recommend ordering a sample of this first if you have sensitive/dry skin. This toner made my skin feel like it was burning on the first application so I discontinued use.

              I use this product on the hypersensitive skin on my neck and behind my knees. It gently hydrates and soothes without causing any irritation or redness. I can't understand why this super product isn't more highly rated.

                  I used this product for the first time yesterday. I was surprised with how it gave me a burning sensation. Especially since it's for redness relief. I also woke up with tiny little red bumps all over my face and since this was the only new product I used I'm pinning it on this. I would return it but you have to pay to ship it back so il just keep it and try it again. But they know that most people don't want to pay to have it shipped back and end up keeping a product they are unhappy with.

                    Nice, milky, formula that hydrates my dry sensitive skin. I have mild redness that I thought this could help, I also bought the face wash, serum and sunscreen. Unfortunately I don't find this line does anything for my redness.

                      I had high hopes for this toner. I've enjoyed the Resist Advanced Replenishing Toner for several years but thought I'd try a calming version. I'm so disappointed! I'm ordering what I know works and I'll never change again.

                        I have found my favorite line in this new CALM line. I just love everything CALM for dry skin. My skin is so sensitive, easy to break out and often have dry patches. I have tried the Resist Replenishing toner and while i like that too, I love this better. I feel like this fits my skin type much better. This CALM line really does it job in calming redness and breakouts. I see instant results and loving it right away. Love love! Thankyou for creating this CALM line for people who have complicated skin conditions like me! (Dry, acne prone and super sensitive).

                          Being Canadian and with our weak dollar right now, I am particularly demanding of the products I am willing to order from the US. They have to be unique formulations that I can't dupe for less $$ locally, and be effective for my skin concerns. This product is one of those irreplaceable superstars that is worth the trouble and expense for me. I have type 1 rosacea, and this toner is soothing and calming like few other things I have found. I apply with my fingers, quite liberally on my cheeks and nose twice a day. When I am having a flare up, this will reduce the redness for me pretty well immediately upon application.

                          I have looked extensively for other toners/emulsions/essences with similar ingredients, and have yet to find anything that remotely compares. As far as the sheer number of proven skin soothing ingredients, and the lack of irritants such as fragrance and alcohol, I believe this product is unbeatable, really at any price...which annoys me every time I crack open my wallet and face that exchange rate, but it is what it is. I believe this product is unique, and worth trying for anyone with red, sensitive skin.
