Unfortunately it made me break out
from St. Louis, MO
About Me Budget Buyer
Comments about SKIN BALANCING Pore-Reducing Toner - 6.4 oz:
I was so excited to purchase this product since a friend of mine uses it daily. I even tried a sample for a couple days and didn't seem to have any side effects after use. After I purchased the product and and used it for a few weeks, I started breaking out. I immediately stopped using and the product and the acne went away. If you are prone to cystic acne, you may want to reconsider purchasing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is my "holy grail" toner!
from Roy, Wa.
I user PC Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner 2 times daily (am/pm) after cleansing and before applying other treatment(s)/moisturizer. I discovered Paula's Choice about 2 years ago - and am hooked! I've noticed a huge difference in my skin and feel this toner plays a big part. It's nonirritating, the product applies easily and evenly over my skin when applied with a cotton ball, and I feel is a great way to start my skin care routine each day - weather it be in the morning prepping my skin for makeup or in the evening after cleansing and taking my makeup off for the day - I know the products that follow will be more "effective" starting with this toner. < 3 Paula's Choice!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Viva La revolutions
from Woodstock, Ontario, Canada
VIVA LA REVOLUTION!So I started a Skin Revolution on my face March 8th 2016.Today is Mach 17th 2016, and I can already see a difference. Let me break it down for you.Skin concerns:1. GIAGANTOR Pot Hole Pores. (That's top of my list)2. Skin Texture (I have some weird texture up by my eyes/tops of cheeks)3. Oily Combination Skin4. Fine Lines and wrinkle prevention. Plan of Daily Attack!1. Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash2. Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner3. Paula's Choice Skin Perfect 2% BHA liquid Exfoliate4. DAY: Paula's Choice Clear Ultra-Light Daily Mattifying Fluid SPF Moisturizer5. NIGHT: Body Shop Nurtiganics Night Cream6. Clay Mask 1-2/week: Sephora Brand Mud Mask Purifying & MattifyingNow I am by no means admitting that you can actually shrink your pores… this is a giant misconception. We need them, they do good things. However; mine are so large that they get clogged up easily thus making them appear larger. Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing TonerI always thought tonners were a gimmick up-sell. That they really didn't do much for your skin, or that people prone to acne needed them and not me. I found that in the past when I used them, it would dry out my skin and break me out. Even if I used sensitive skin ones, as I thought for the longest time I had sensitive skin. Not true. A GOOD tonner should not be alcohol based. That will make anyone's skin sensitive; thus breaking you out cause you are drying up any moisture in your face causing your skin to produce more oil thus creating a never ending cycle of breakouts and dry/oily skin. I thought I would give this one a go. I feel that it is probably why I didn't break out during reformatting my skin regime. Good tonners repair damage to the skin and help restore skins natural PH so it doesn't go in hyperactive mode to produce what its lacking (AKA Oil). No matter how gentle a face wash is; when you wash away your skins natural moisture it needs to repair itself. Tonners help do the work for you, and you get to have clear nice skin as a side effect… sounds like a win win in my books!

Icing on the cake
About Me Brand Buyer
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.

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.

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
