Best friend for dry skin
from Washington, DC
About Me Brand Buyer
Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Toner - 6.4 oz:
This is by far my favorite part of my skin care routine. I actually get excited to us it. For reference, I have dry skin that occasionally will get slightly oily in the t zone. It's milky and luxurious. I feel like my skin is "drinking' it in after I wash my face. It's almost like a pre-moisturizer. My skin feels moisturized without the slightest bit of greasiness. And my skin is SO soft after. Seriously it's amazing. I don't use it how the directions say though. I put it directly into my hands and then rub it on my face from there. I only do this because I double cleanser and don't need to wipe away any traces of makeup because I ensure it's all gone before. I feel like this way saves product too. I don't want to lose any to a cotton pad. If you have dry skin or really any type of skin other than super oily....you NEED this in your life.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Worth the splurge
from SF, CA
About Me Budget Buyer
I was hesitant to spend this much on a toner, but if you're serious about avoiding alcohol and fragrance, PC has your back. With this toner I can wipe away the last traces of waterproof mascara under my bottom lashes without irritating my sensitive eye area. My skin absorbs it quickly and feels velvety soft.

The worst for me!!!
About Me Beauty Expert
I used and loved the moisture boost toner. Since that is discontinued, I got a bottle of this. Terrible idea! My skin is peeling off, red, and so irritated that even my moisture boost moisturizer stung to put on. Paula's Choice is the best, however. They gave me a full refund, and they've mailed me samples of the Calm toner. Hopefully, that will work better, and hopefully my skin will have healed enough for me to try it once it gets here. Right now my face is a mess! Today, people kept asking me what had happened to my skin.

Saving Grace...Hydrating as a Lotion!
from Austin, TX
I described this product as my saving grace to a friend who needed skin care recommendations! I have very dry skin and this is PERFECTION...Exactly what I needed in my skincare routine. I was using the RESIST version before, and while that was better than any other product I'd ever used...This...This is the real deal I need for my very dry skin! Honestly, I had to stop myself from using it as a lotion! It is uber hydrating and does not irritate my very sensitive skin. Love the milky formula very much. Once again, thanks Paulas Choice for this!!!!!

My favorite product in the universe
By St Fidgeta
About Me Minimalist
Honestly, this is the first skin care product that I've ever found to be worth the trouble. It singlehandedly convinced me that facial care products aren't a racket! When I use it, my skin feels great, and I don't get pimples, even when I have PMS. I love it.

Breaks me out horrifically!
About Me Beauty Conscious
This toner has a runny consistency and is milky in colour. It does a great job at hydrating and moisturising the skin but, unfortunately, that is where the benefits end for me. I don't know which ingredient is responsible but this toner breaks me out horrifically! Every time I use it I get at least 5 sore, angry red pimples. Some of these pimples are pustules and one or 2 are deep cystic pimples. This is concerning as I very rarely get cystic acne. I was really hoping it wasn't this product but it's the only thing I've added to the routine and I stop developing this acne every time I remove it from my routine as a test. I do not recommend it to acne-prone individuals!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love everything about this toner other than its packaging
from New York
The products softens and soothes my dry skin while reducing fine lines. I love everything about it but the packaging. More than half my bottle of toner leaked out of the container while I was traveling by plane about 2 weeks ago . Despite the leakage i've continued to use the toner because its just that good of a product but because of said leakage I dont know if i'll be ordering it again and If I do I definitely wont be traveling with it .I just wanted to give others who travel often a heads up before they choose to purchase this toner.

Love This Toner!
I have consistently used this toner for 2 years now along with various other PC products. I think a toner is an essential part of any skincare routine and I notice with aging...it is getting tougher and tougher to keep my skin looking refreshed and youthful. This toner goes a long way toward helping my skin stay soft and supple. This is practically the only toner I use in the Winter to combat the dryness but now I pretty much use it year round. It's just one of those great products that I do not ever want to be without. I love to use this with the Skin Recovery Cream Cleanser....just perfect!

from New Brunswick, NJ
I use this twice a day with a cotton pad and it's made my skin so much less dry than it was before I tried this! It's very soothing and reduces my redness. It also doesn't cause my breakouts, which I love because I'm acne-prone, despite having such dry skin.

Disaster for my cheeks
from Egg Harbor Twp, NJ
I've happily been using the Skin Recovery cleanser and moisture mask, so I thought I'd give a sample of this a try to see if it brought me even better skin. My cheeks HATED it, though. Applied on a freshly clean (and calm) face without layering any other products on top yet, this toner gave me cheeks the color of tomatoes. The extreme redness calmed down a few hours after I removed it, thankfully. Just be careful trying this if you are the least bit prone to redness. Patch test! I wish I had!
