Comments about SKIN BALANCING Pore-Reducing Toner - 6.4 oz:
I was super bummed, this toner felt nice and made my skin feel pretty soft, but I woke up bright red after my first use. So, definitely won't be using this again, though I wish I could.

About Me Brand Buyer
Really love the whole SKin Balancing Line-I tried the whole line with samples, loved everything so bought the Essentials Kit-and now will buy the full size on this one. It's a must-it completely refreshes and clarifies, helps minmize pores(therefore improving texture) and perfectly primes your skin for your exfoliant, moisturizer and the rest of your routine! My skin type is combo to oily, occasional breakout and this routine is the be all and end all-and I've tried many brands-being a novice beauty blogger
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love Paula's choice. I buy her products exclusively and have for years. I have very oily skin but I keep it under control with a good primer. I bought this toner thinking that was the thing missing from my routine, as my skin is looking dull lately. This toner made my fave so oily that my makeup was sliding off my face by noon. It was horrible. I want to like this so bad
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great for acne+dry and sensitive skin
About Me Budget Buyer
I love this product and it's one of the few products that I repurchase regularly. With acne+dry skin it's difficult to find a good moisturizer that doesn't A. break you out or B. leave you parched and flakey. I like gel moisturizers but they're never moisturizing enough on their own. When I use this toner and then a gel moisturizer it's the perfect amount of hydration for my skin without being comedogenic.

I had been reading Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me and bought Paula's line almost when it first started. I had been using BHA liquid exfoliant, which is still my favorite product, but several years ago I started adding this. I had always thought toners were unnecessary but tried a sample of this. It is now part of my daily routine morning and night. I used to get acne on my chin regularly, which would leave dark marks for months afterward that I had to conceal. This has improved dramatically since using Paula's Choice products. This toner feels so clean and removes the oil without drying, so I stopped washing my face in the morning, which has kept the skin more balanced. I have never tried it as a makeup remover, but it does remove any leftover eye makeup. I don't know if you're supposed to use it near the eye, but it never irritates it so I do, and it's not oily like my eye makeup remover can be. Several women at work asked me how my skin looks so good for my age, so I told them about Paula's Choice, and now they use it, too!

Changed My Skin
from San Antonio, TX
**First and only toner I've ever used.**I've used this product every single day (after I cleanse my face) for a few months now. I used to always get these small bumps on my forehead (most likely due to excess oil/dirt), and since I've been using this toner -- CLEAR FACE. It removes all the dirt from my face and helps remove any excess make up I have. It makes my skin feel clean and fresh! It's very gentle on the skin, though I do have to say when I let my boyfriend use it, he said he felt his face tingle (which I don't ever feel), and he broke out the next day. Then again he has no skincare routine/regime...I'm always asked about what products I use to get my face so clear + even, and I honestly have to say it's because of this toner! To be honest, I've had pretty clear skin all my life, but this toner has made my skin look and feel even better.

I saw no improvement after 6 months
from Charleston, SC
I faithfully used this product for 5 months and have found no difference in the amount of blackheads and the size of pores. I used this product day and night, right after my cleanser, let it dry for a minute or so, apply product, and let it dry for a few minutes before applying my other Paula's Choice treatment or moisturizer. I like that it is very mild on my skin, as the Hydralight tingled a bit, and I liked that my skin was just slightly moisturized and smooth to the touch. I was hoping for more noticeable changes in my skin though, so I will not re-purchase. I love PC products though, so this does not deter me from trying a different product line.

I LOVE PC, but this one wasn't for me...
I want to start by saying PC products saved my skin. This product, however, gave me little red whitehead pimples everywhere I used it on my face. When I called they said I probably had a reaction to the niacimide, but I use many other PC products that contain that ingredient. I think it was maybe the combination of the ingredients in this toner. Disappointingly, this toner wasn't for me. But I must say, I love the SB cleanser, and moisturizers.... They literally sav d my skin. I wish this one worked for me. Oh well. I still love all of my other PC skincare.
This is my all-time favorite toner! I've used total of 4 bottles and it definitely does its job of reducing my pores. I stock this toner whenever paula's choice is on sale and it surely is a must-buy item for me.

i use it morning and night. Other toners would always dry my skin to the point it would start itching, but not this one. I love it!!!
