    different - I love it!
    • I took a chance with this toner, as I had never used it before. I was pleasantly surprised. The product is milky and kind of thick, so I have better luck pouring a bit into my hand and smoothing it on, rather than using a cotton pad. I then use the cotton pad to wipe the excess off. It always makes my skin feel good, and definitely clean. It does not dry out my skin at all. Will continue to order.

    Favourite toner
    • Having only used alcohol based toners before, trying this was an eye-opener. It is slightly milky in texture and colour and really calms and soothes my skin. It doesn't try it out at all and my skin soaks it up. Like most PC products, a little bit goes a long way. 3-4 drops on a cotton balls are more than enough. I will definitely be re-purchasing this in the future.

    Best toner
    • I have been using SKII Facial Treatment Essence for the past year with great results, but found out it wasn't really a "toner," and so I needed to add one to my routine for maximum effect. After a lot of research, I thought the ingredients in this toner seemed optimal, and after 3 days use, I could already tell a huge difference in how it feels! But the appearance is the same, oddly enough. Now I use this as the step before SKII. I love the texture/how it goes on! ('Pat on' method, not w/cotton)

    Great toner but...
    • I would love for this toner to come in a larger size. 4 oz is a very small amount, perhaps it was created this way for expiration reasons or something else (feel free to respond to this). It's calming on my skin and has a great softening feeling after applied. I'm a huge fan of Japanese "lotions" which are basically hydrating toners formulated without alcohol and come with the benefits of hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. This is well made, great for sensitive and dry skin.

    Hello! Yes, the size of this toner is to ensure maximum efficacy of the anti-aging ingredients with daily use.

    Hydrating
    • I really love this toner! I have combination skin and use the Skin Balancing cleanser, which is excellent at taking off all makeup without feeling like it is stripping the skin. In the winter, the cleanser can be a bit more drying, but the Resist Toner replenishes all moisture to my skin immediately (so I use the same cleanser year round). I also use it around the eyes and on my neck, where I tend to get mild eczema and it has helped that as well.

    I can't wait to use this
    • I love this toner and use it along side the hydrating cleanser etc and I love it. My face feels so hydrated and healthy. I find that if you use this properly, the cleanser and toner only last about 2 months-I do wish PC would offer a larger size, or perhaps offer stock up sales on the basics. It would be a good package to bundle the cleanser, toner and makeup remover as a basic. I love this stuff.

    Eczema relief
    • I didn't notice any of the effects that I got it for- reduced sun damage and pore size, firming, etc. But boy does it soothe my prickly, itchy eczema. I will buy another bottle just to drown my itchy bits in. I'm excited to see that it's an eye makeup remover too. Doesn't surprise me, I got right up close to my eyes with the cotton ball.

    Can't live without
    • This product is amazing and quite frankly, worthy of a review (I've never written a review on any internet platform before, EVER). I have combination/dry, sun damaged/pigmented, aging skin. I used 100% Witchhazel as my toner before finding this product bc it was 100% natural and I prefer natural to synthetic products. But now that I've tried this, I am NEVER going back... to any other product. This is a milky product that leaves my skin moisturized, firm, and glorious. ***Highly recommended***

    soothing silky toner that doubles as an awesome eye makeup remover
    • This is a wonderful silky slightly milky toner. Very gentle, soothing, and hydrating. I put a few drops into my palm, and put it on with my fingers. Avoids the waste of using cotton balls or squares and is just as effective. As an added bonus, I discovered that because it's so gentle I've been using it as an eye makeup remover. Does a spectacular job! No stinging, no bleariness, just calming and soothing goodness. Very pleased with this product.

    Pure Decadence!
    • Never in my life did I think I'd ever be passionate about a toner. Every toner I'd ever used had alcohol or fragrant oils in it and they always irritated my sensitive skin. I stopped using toner all together until I discovered Paula's Choice. This product is just so comforting and luxurious, I look forward to using this toner every night. During the day I use the Skin Recovery Toner which is also really nice.

    Love this!!!!!
    • I recently discovered Paula's Choice and will be a life-long customer. I am a product junkie, but I know I need not look any further for a more effective toner. Please read Paula's book "The Beauty Bible" to understand the importance of of toners - I was clueless until I read it. Not only will I use toner from now on, THIS is the toner I will use. It feels like liquid silk on my skin - at a price that can't be beat. If you are looking for a good toner, try this, I know you'll fall in love!

    Preventative care is better than reparative!
    • After I use the PC Softening Cream cleanser, I apply this, then hydroquinone cream (4%). I've noticed that using my hydroquinone cream with this toner has significantly lightened my brown spots FASTER than just the hydroquinone itsef. When my skin is bare of any product, my skin has a new glow. I absolutely LOVE this product and I hope this will never be discontinued! To know I am doing something to delay aging feels good - and to see this product actually working makes me feel even better!

    Gorgeous toner. Try shaking it before each use!
    • This toner REALLY helped me with extremely dry skin from sleeping in air-conditioned room all summer. I tried this and it helped so much! Between this & PC moisturizers I don't have this problem anymore. PC has changed my life and given me confidence back. This toner is soothing, helps redness, helps dryness and helps my skin heal. I think it's the reason I am able to tolerate PC 1% retinol! One note: I noticed that if I shake it first before use, that prevents me from breaking out from it.

    New to Toner
    • I'm 44 years old and I've never really used toner since high school. This toner is creamy, not stripping and it compliments the Resist cleanser well. It goes fast so I wish the container was larger. That's why I gave 4 stars and not 5.

    high hopes but breakouts are happening
    • I wanted to love this as I use almost exclusively Resist products now. I was using the Hydralight toner and when I got a sample of this one I thought I'd give it a go, as the rest of the line is quite lovely. I used the samples with no reaction but now after almost a week of using the full bottle I purchased I'm experiencing a rash-like breakout, something that never or rarely happens to me. Unfortunately I won't be able to continue using this brand new bottle :(

    Soothing.
    • I have probably reviewed this product before but I need to add to the review. I love this toner and use it as a light serum. I have put it in a spray bottle for ease of use. Just this week I had a typical reaction to the new Cllinical 1% retinol so I needed something moisturizing and soothing. This did the trick. Several days in a row I used the toner and followed it up with a little Moisture Boost Hydrating cream. It felt so good and reduced the irritation.

    Love it!
    • I love this toner- it is worth every penny. It hydrates dry spots, soothes any irritation, and my skin just loves it. Even on my lazy days when I just want to wash my face and be done with it, I always use this toner- my skin doesn't feel complete without it. For reference, I have acne-prone oily skin in the summer and dry skin in the winter, and it is equally suitable- I just apply less in the summer. I'm 29 but most of the PC products I use are from the RESIST line- they're excellent. :)

    AM Moisturizer for Aging Acne-Prone Skin
    • I'm so glad I tried this toner based on reviews of other acne-prone women. It is now the only moisturizer I need most of the year, under my sunscreen and make-up. It's lovely and hydrating but isn't too much and doesn't clog my super-sensitive acne-prone problem skin. For PM, I use a serum with the toner and that's enough, except for part of the Canadian the winter, when I need more. My partner has started using it after shaving and noticed an amazing difference too. Love it!!!

    Obsessed
    • I didn't realize how much toner could make a difference in my skin until I tried this product! I use this twice a day and it leaves my skin so soft. It also helps get the makeup off that my cleanser can't. I do agree with the other reviewers in the fact that I go through this quick but it's worth it!

    Wonderful toner!
    • I was skeptical at first but thought I would give this toner a try. I've used others in the past that dried out my skin, this product makes my skin feel like silk! I use it on my face and neck twice a day and can't believe how soft and wonderful my skin feels. I don't think I'll ever be without it again. If you haven't tried this do yourself a favor and at least get the sample to try (love that you can try a sample), I took a chance and bought the full size, so glad I did! Thank you Paula!!

    Hardworking Toner
    • I started using toners in my early 30s when I realized my cleansers weren't getting all the dirt off. The toners I used helped reduce my breakouts but tended to strip my skin of moisture and made my face tight afterwards. (I used Thayers and Alba Organics.) So, I decided to check out the RESIST Toner. The consistency is milky and light. It goes on smooth on your facial skin and feels soothing and nourishing. Balances the pH. Love it! Wish it came in bigger sizes as it will run out fast.

    Excellent
    • I use this immediately after cleansing, the minute I dry my face with my towel. I can use this all over my eye area and face with no irritation at all. Perfect to lock in moisture immediately before I use my exfoliant. Necessary because I am a generic brand retina-a user, as one more soothing mechanism for my skin.

    Another great PC product
    • This a lovely soft, gentle and calming toner. I find the bottle lasts the same length of time as the Resist cleanser and moisturiser I use, often longer. For less waste, you could do as another reviewer does and just dab straight on your face rather than use a cotton pad (assuming you cleansed thoroughly). Paula, please don't increase the size and thereby reduce the stability and effectiveness of the ingredients. It is great the way it is now and a little dribble goes a long way!

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 of your makeup. When properly formulated, they 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 improve skin’s healthy functioning.

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 specialized 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.
