Additional Information

Why is it different?
This 100% irritant-free toner leaves even the most sensitive skin calmed, revitalized and free of traces of makeup left after cleansing. With its lightweight formula, it can also help to balance combination or oily skin while delivering just the right amount of hydration.

What does it do?
Powerful anti-irritants like willow herb extract soothe redness and inflammation. Green tea and grape seed extracts act as natural antioxidants to fortify skin’s protective barrier against daily environmental stress like pollution.

How to use
After cleansing, apply toner to a cotton pad and gently stroke over face and neck. Do not rinse. Follow with the rest of your morning or evening skincare routine. For daytime, finish with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.

    This toner was discontinued about a year ago, I was devastated. Out of all the toners that I've tried this is the only one that balanced, moisturized and soothed my combination skin. Now I'm just hoping this re released toner is the same old formula.

      Thank you for bringing back Hydralight toner. After it was discontinued I used Resist and Skin Balancing toners, but they didn't compare to Hydralight on my skin. This toner and the 2% BHA liquid are my all-time favorite PC products.

        Comments about Hydralight Toner - 6.4 oz:

        Wow! I wish I knew about this product sooner! I have spent my whole 20's and 30's dealing with rosacea and sensitive skin. Plus I have spent a ton of money on products that made my skin worse which caused more trips to the dermatologist. Love, LOVE this product! I have been using it for four months and the results are amazing. It has reduced a great amount of my rosacea and I don't use ANY of the prescriptions my doctor gave me. My husband commented on the change he's seen in my skin and said, "Wow, that stuff does work." I feel for the first time in my life my rosacea is MANAGED without costing a small fortune. Thank you Paula! If only I could go back and tell my younger self to use Paula's Choice.

          I decided to purchase a toner after wanting and needing to seek that healthy skin. I use a BHA and AHA. I will say I think this product has helped those work better. I am loving this toner. Now it is warm out, I clean my face and just swipe this on instead of a moisturizer.

          I really like the ingredients found in this toner, it left my face soft and clean. However, it can make your face and blemishes red! The effect was only temporary but still unsettling to watch your pimples go from pink to red! Excited to try the new Calm Redness Relief line!

            Such a brilliant toner! It truly is a shame that it is being discontinued! It's simplicity is what I love most. This toner calmed my reddened skin and improved the clarity of my skin tone. A brilliant line is being discontinued, which I do not understand.

              Comments about Hydralight Toner - 6.4 oz:

              I don't have much of an opinion of this product but I bought two bottles of it. It doesn't really feel like it does anything but it's just a toner. I'm used to the kind that sting and irritate my face so this product probably just feels like what a toner feels like. Which is like nothing. It removes my makeup residue (if I have any) after washing and preps my skin for the rest of my routine. I've only been using it for a month. I don't feel like a toner is really a product that is supposed to do anything great or miraculous for your skin... but if you're used to using products that irritate you... your skin will just be feeling normal and balanced after using this. Don't expect to "feel" it working, because it's not supposed to feel like anything. Hope that all makes sense.

              I bought this toner since it said it helps with overall redness. I found that it did help with my oily t zone but when I put the toner on after cleansing, it makes my face bright red. I'm not really impressed and will not purchase again.

                This is my first time using a toner so I can't compare it to any other ones but I have to say that I should have started using toner a long time ago! I love how fresh and clean my face & neck feel after I put this on. I have noticed that my skin looks more 'normalized' and my face feels like it's ready to take on the rest of the products that I put on. I love the tingling feeling as well!

                  Comments about Hydralight Toner - 6.4 oz:

                  I am so pleasantly surprised with this toner. Unfortunately my cupboards, drawers, and bathroom closets (yes I'm serious) are filled with the result of an endless frustration filled world wide search for the perfect toner. All of the toners I've wasted money on are too harsh, riddled with skin irritating ingredients, and basically just a blend of fancy words that are actually different types of alcohols in disguise, so you can see that I was a little nervous to try yet another toner. But then a ray of light busted through the clouds of cosmetic lies and landed on this wonderful liquid.

                  For reference: I am a 23 year old female with combination/normal skin that is prone to breakouts (mostly hormonal) with an oily but not always T-zone

                  I use this toner in the morning after washing and sometimes at night if I've worn makeup that day, with a cotton pad. And I will just tell you, it is the best dang toner I've ever used. It's silky soft and oh so gentle on the skin. This toner moisturizes in a way that makes your skin feel like YOUR skin. It makes my skin feel soft and comfortable, it also really does soothe the redness I tend to have due to breakouts. It's the only moisture that I need and dries nicely. I don't feel like I've used a toner after it dries, it's not sticky or greasy and it doesn't affect my makeup application whatsoever. My skin feels clean and balanced in an effective gentle way after using this toner.

                  The only negative thing I can say is that it has a dull burning sensation that goes away in a few minutes when I swipe it across my eyelids. So I just don't use it on my eyelids anymore. Problem solved! I wish I could send all of my friends this toner that's how good it is.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  I would just like to say that the customer service I received on this product was wonderful. I sent an email asking if this toner was okay for breakout prone skin and within a couple hours I had an email saying yes absolutely it was okay and a list of more in depth descriptions/info on the other toners Paula offers. I appreciate and highly value a good customer service experience. This positive experience will have me coming back happily. Also all of my products arrived in 3 days in perfect condition.
