Icing on the cake
About Me Brand Buyer
Comments about SKIN BALANCING Pore-Reducing Toner - 6.4 oz:
Horrid acne with an oil slick before I started. Used the Clear Regular Strength kit plus this and Resist moisturizer. The clear kit takes care of the acne, but this over time truly balances oil production. The effect didnt become notable until the bottle was almost done. It does not over dry, or over moisurize. It also preps the skin for the exfoliator or whatever else you choose. I ran out and realized this product's exact contribution to my skincare routine. Without it my skin is a little tight, and after a 2-3 days starts becoming oily again. The other products do the heavy lifting and this is the icing on the cake.In regards to pore minimizing, the pores on my nose shrink, otherwise it doesn't fix ice pick scars and potmarks but I'm currently using the scar serum on my face and just having healthy skin is allowing healing. I am reordering this product because I'm addicted to how good the whole skin care line together improves my skin. I feel like the naturally pretty girl in a teen movie lol.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My favorite Paula product
I love putting this on, it leaves skin feeling great. By far my favorite Paula product. I have really sensitive skin, it gets red so easy and feel like this has helped! I know there's a new redness relief line but honestly not sure if it would be worth switching over, love this one!

Love this product, does what it says!
By Donna the mom
from Chicago, IL
I have been using this for about 3 years as a regular part of my skin care routine after cleansing and before exfoliating. It has helped my skin become more even and healthy, less visible pores and less redness. This is huge as I have always had ruddy cheeks that I chalked up to my Irish heritage. Thank you for making good solid products Paula's Choice.

Irritating to my skin!
from Seattle, WA
I was looking to add a toner to my routine since I've been trying to step up my skincare regimen in my 30s. I researched all the different toners on beautypedia and was slightly overwhelmed. I chose this one because I have normal-slightly dry combo skin and liked the idea of balancing. I also liked the description that it was slightly hydrating. However, this really irritated my skin, which can be sensitive. I also purchased the new Calm moisturizer and both ended up irritating my skin. I have since purchased the Resist hydrating toner and am liking it so far! I think this toner would be best for really oily, not sensitive skin.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have an "average" oily t zone, combination skin, enlarged pores and blackheads on nose. The rest of my face is clean. This toner works for 10 min and then your face slides right off. :/ i am really trying to give paulas choice product a go but... :/

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.

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
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

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!
