    Breaks me out
    • I wanted to love this as I like thicker toners that I can apply with my finger tips instead of always using a cotton pad and like the idea of extra anti-oxidants and lightweight hydration- but I've used this on and off for months now and every time end up with little pimples all over. I've tried it enough times now to be pretty certain it is the culprit as it always happens within 2-3 days of resuming use of it.

    Use as an antioxidant
    • I don't use this as a conventional toner. I use it as an antioxidant product because the serums are just too pricey for me right now. I add a few drops of the C15 to a few drops of this and dab onto my fave after toning and the 1% BHA gel. It feels great and does not make me break out. My skin is aging but breakout prone, although I have not broken out in years due to a combination of birth-control pills and PC products, which are brilliant.

    Scratch that
    • I rated this 5 stars because the first couple of times I used it I loved it. I didn't need a cotton pad with it and it had loads of amazing ingredients, and the best thing was is that it didn't break me out. After one week of consistent use my face got extremely red and irritated. I did not use it for 3 days and my skin went back to normal. So I decided to use it again after those three days to make sure this was the culprit, and it was. I cant pinpoint which ingredient did it though.

    Post acne red marks and redness goodbye
    • LOVE THIS!!!! It has a slightly thicker consistency than the rest of her toners, and I love the feeling of it, and it absorbs very quickly. I have extremely acne prone skin so I was wary of trying this because some people got acne like symptoms from it, but I did not have a reaction. It repaired my skin and quickly helped to fade my discoloration from acne. It was slightly hydrating, and did not sting my face when I used it. I absolutely love the ingredients in this. I will buy the full product.

    One of Best PC Products!
    • I have used the Earth Source cleanser and toner for about 6 months now, and I think they are wonderful products. The cleanser removes all of my makeup and is great with my clarisonic at bedtime. I use the toner as my combination toner/serum/moisturizer because I have very oily, acne prone, sensitive skin; and this product mixed with the C15 twice a day has made my skin the best it has EVER been in my life (and I am 62). And the best part is they are also very reasonably priced!

    Only okay
    • I think I'm used to toners having alcohol and being more liquidy but I think Paula's Choice toner's are more of a lotion which I'm just not used to. Because of this you need way more on the cotton ball or pad to feel like you are really getting enough on your skin. I didn't see any adverse effects from using this for a week so no complaints I just didn't see anything spectacular that would make me want to buy the full size. But there are no scary ingredients or alcohol so that's good!

    Can Antioxidants give you breakouts?
    • I've used PC antioxidant serums in the past, and I'd always break out. But since Paula highly recommends antioxidants and customers are always saying it brings your skin to the "next level", I thought I'd try the toner. It feels lovely and I really liked it but after about a month my skin was so clogged it was disgusting. It's been about a month since quitting and I'm finally close to normal. I usually only get inflammatory acne so the clogging was unbearable. Really wanted this to work :(

    We're so sorry this toner didn't work for you. To answer your question though, antioxidants, especially in aqueous or extract form, are highly unlikely to clog pores.

    The Best
    • Best toner I've ever tried. Really soothing after shaving or when my skin feels a little dry. I love putting it on in the morning underneath a moisturizer + sunscreen. My skin looks really healthy and feels moisturized thanks to this product. I would say for those with really oily skin or really dry skin to try another product, simply because of the texture of this one. For every other skin type this is an amazing buy. Great value for an amazing toner.

    Not moisturizing enough for dry skin, made me break out
    • The texture is nice and it applies and dries easily. Unfortunately it did not help my dry flaky skin at all and I got 6 new pimples the 2 days I was using it. There are so many plant extracts that I can't be sure which one caused my breakout. For reference I usually get 3-4 pimples a month and I haven't gotten a single new one since I stopped using this.

    Thanks for your review! We suspect the pimples you observed weren't true breakouts (these take weeks to form and show on the surface) but rather an irritant dermatitis, which is a type of reaction that comes on suddenly and, confusingly, can resemble breakouts. You may be allergic to one or more of the natural ingredients in this toner. We're happy to help you select another toner or provide a refund; just contact us and we'll work it out!

    Overnight relief from peeling irritated skin!
    • My skin was peeling so badly that it looked like I was recovering from a sunburn. I didn't even want to go out in public that is how awful I felt. I ordered this because it said it could help with irritation and skin recovery toner wasn't helping. OMG I saw OVERNIGHT results! My skin still has a little surface dryness but the peeling is gone! I have used it for 2 days now and the results are sincerely dramatic! Now that it is on sale I am stocking up as I now can't live without! Thank you Paula!

    Lovely texture that moisturizes
    • Currently using the clear-liquid of pore-refining toner from PC line, but got a sample of this and tried it, and completely fell in love! It's not clear, but more milky and creamy, but my skin absorbs it so well and it feels moisturized after just the use of this. I did use a generous amount. I actually don't see much effect of the pore-refining toner, and it stings my face just a little bit, I will buy this one after I use up my current one. Great product!

    Not much difference
    • I bought Clear Regular Strength Acne, Earth Sourced Toner, Resist C15, Redness Relief, Hydralight lotion, Hydralight Shine-Free SPF30, Shine Stopper together. Toner is more viscous than normal, nice smell but not much effect. I use toner in daytime and exfoliant as toner at night. Don't think I will buy it again as there's not much difference but could be due to other stronger products I'm using.

    Great antioxidant
    • I was using the antioxidant serums but along with all the other PC products I use, it was getting too pricey. So I switched to this because it's packed with antioxidants and you get much more product for less money. So now I used MB cleanser, followed by Hyralight Toner, then the 1% BHA, and then mix Earth Sourced toner with a few drops of the C-15 serum and pat that on my face. Follow with moisturizer (to which I often add a drop of argan oil and pump of hyaluronic acid from other lines.)

    Light moisture and soothing
    • I have very oily, sensitive and acne-prone skin and I use this after I wash my face. I just squirt a dime on my fingers and rub it all over. It soothes and lightly moisturizes so that whatever treatments I apply after go on more smoothly and evenly. It does not cause acne at all. If I forget to use it, I can tell because my skin is more irritated, red, and flaky. It's full of natural ingredients, too. Have repurchased many times and will again.

    I love love love this!
    • This is by far the best PC toner--have tried 3 in past. In the summer, I use it as a moisturizer applied with my fingers followed by an antioxidant serum, tanner, then sunscreen. In the winter, I do the same but add PC Skin Bal. gel moisturizer. I thought I could go without for the winter, and my skin got seriously dry. I really missed it, so I placed another order just to get it. I hope it is kept as a permanent line. The smell is very light and pleasant and the texture is like a thick water.

    Best Toner
    • I have used several toners over the years and this is easily the best. It's soothing and has substance - I like that it isn't drying but provides antioxidant benefits to the skin. I have very oily skin and this doesn't worsen acne - proving that witch hazel and alcohol do not need to be included to have a great toner! I love using this after cleansing for an additional cleanse and pre-moisture.

    So far so good
    • This is the last paulas toner on my list and I hope I saved the best for last. Through trial and error I have discovered I can't use the silicones in others (breaks me out) and Niacinamide and Willow burn horribly so this is my only option. It feels a little thick, kind of a strange texture but so far no breakouts. Hopefully this will work for me - fingers crossed.

    Winter Toner!
    • This is my favorite winter toner. I have dry but also acne-prone skin during winter time and I can't use any skin care that contains alcohol, silicone, and willow herb extract as they will cause me break out! I realized although PC toners are free of alcohol, they still contain either one of the two remaining ingredients, which gave me hard time to look for a good winter toner. FINALLY, IT IS HERE. I'm so glad Paula has created this toner without using silicone and willow herb!

    Great for my redness!
    • I ordered a few samples of this and I am totally in love and can't wait to purchase the full size. I have a lot of redness in my cheeks and although this doesn't make huge claims to help combat redness, I found that it calmed my skin so much and my skin looked so even after using this! It has a wonderful texture that's slightly creamy so I feel normal, combo, and dry skin would like this. I've noticed a reduction of breakouts too which is great!:)

    Nice Natural Toner
    • This was the first toner I used from Paula's Choice. It's white-milky in appearance and fluid like. I found that it was easy enough to spread without a cotton pad, though you would probably be using too much. I enjoyed it and learned that my skin would drink it up, and it left some nice moisture on my skin. I like the fact that this has mostly plant extracts, while only mentioning phenylalanine as an odd ingredient you find in artificial sweeteners but I'm sure it's no big deal.

    • I love this toner. It is made up of so many fantastic ingredients. I like the consistency and enjoy using this as more of a serum. It is so great to have found a natural product that contains effective ingredients that are suitable for my sensitive skin. My skin is also quite oily and this toner has worked well for that as well.

How can a toner improve my baby's skin?

Earth Sourced Purely Natural Refreshing Toner is loaded with soothing agents, gentle hydrating ingredients, and antioxidants designed to smooth and reinforce healthy skin. It can be especially beneficial for babies with eczema or other signs of dryness, redness, or irritation. Ongoing use helps keep baby's skin baby smooth!

What do toners "tone"? I thought Paula didn't recommend toners!

Paula has always recommended toners that are well-formulated. Toners can be a great after-cleansing step to be sure you've removed all your makeup and to give skin essential skin repairing and healing ingredients in a light liquid base. When properly formulated, toners soothe skin and add hydrating ingredients to make skin softer, not to mention they're another leave-on source for antioxidants and other ingredients that help repair and restore skin.

How do I know which toner is right for me? Besides skin type, what are the main differences between Paula's Choice toners?

All of our toners restore skin, help remove last traces of makeup, are alcohol- and fragrance-free, and contain no unnecessary irritants such as menthol, peppermint, and citrus oils. They are great as an adjunct to a more thorough cleansing routine, especially post-workout or in hot/humid climates. Even more significantly, they go beyond the basics by offering skin benefits you can see and feel.

Resist Advanced Replenishing Toner is a specialized formula designed to supply normal to dry aging skin with a broad range of ingredients it needs to produce healthy collagen while reducing wrinkles. It is a super-charged version of our popular Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner, with a specific emphasis on improving the signs of aging skin.

Resist Weightless Advanced Repairing Toner is a specialised formula designed to supply normal to oily or breakout-prone aging skin with a broad range of targeted ingredients to help improve signs of aging plus reduce enlarged pores and reduce dry, flaky, uneven skin texture. It is ideal for those struggling with oily skin, wrinkles, and large pores.

Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner for normal to very dry skin is an excellent choice for those who need more help protecting their skin from environmental damage or dryness. Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner has a richer texture than any of our other toners and contains more plant oils and other emollients than our Moisture Boost Essential Hydrating Toner. This is a great option for dry to very dry skin, extremely sun damaged skin, or those dealing with eczema or rosacea accompanied by dry skin.

Moisture Boost Essential Hydrating Toner contains ingredients that help soothe and restore normal to dry skin, plus it includes a greater amount of glycerin, a key ingredient to make dry skin look and feel better. It also contains a broad range of ingredients that aid the barrier repair process so those with dry skin (or normal skin with occasional dry patches) will receive even more benefit from their Paula’s Choice moisturizer and/or specialty product. Moisture Boost Essential Hydrating Toner feels lighter than our Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner, yet still provides an array of antioxidants, anti-irritants, and skin-protecting ingredients. To get the benefits of both toners for normal to dry skin, you can use Moisture Boost Essential Hydrating Toner in the morning and Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner in the evening.

Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner for normal to oily/combination skin is excellent for protecting skin from environmental damage or dryness. In addition, its cell-communicating ingredients can, in theory, help balance skin so its oily areas do not worsen or lead to reddened or blemished skin. Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner uses a more complex formulation than our Hydralight Healthy Skin Refreshing Toner, and helps restore normal cell function.

Hydralight Healthy Skin Refreshing Toner is an excellent choice for normal to oily/combination skin. It provides a weightless finish, and although it feels very light, it supplies skin with potent antioxidants and anti-irritants. Hydralight Healthy Skin Refreshing Toner is a great option for those who want more protection and a soothing, soft, feeling on their skin, particularly those with sensitive skin. To get the benefits of both toners for normal to oily/combination skin, you may want use Hydralight Healthy Skin Refreshing Toner in the morning and Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner in the evening.

Earth Sourced Purely Natural Refreshing Toner is for all skin types. It has a distinctive, liquid-gel formula bursting with antioxidants proven to repair skin and stimulate collagen production. The formula uses proprietary technology that truly captures the best of nature and modern science.

Just how natural are the Earth Sourced products?

Earth Sourced products are formulated with 98–99% completely natural ingredients. The natural ingredients we use are guaranteed to be non-irritating, safe, and effective for many different skin types. The ingredients are derived in whole or in part from natural sources with no synthetic compounds. Paula's Choice uses a specialized, proprietary technology to ensure these natural products have elegant textures and function as intended—all without using ingredients known to cause irritation. That's a big difference from what Paula and her team have seen from countless other natural lines, as many of them contain natural ingredients research has shown irritate skin and damage healthy collagen production.

Why aren't all Paula's Choice products "Earth Sourced"?

For many skincare concerns, putting together a completely effective group of products that will give your skin truly remarkable results when it comes to treating most skincare concerns such as acne or sensitive skin simply can't be done with only natural ingredients. Paula's Choice Earth Sourced products work beautifully when combined with other Paula's Choice products designed for your skin type and concerns. It is the most balanced way for you to take exceptional care of your skin.
