Saving Grace...Hydrating as a Lotion!
from Austin, TX
About Me Beauty Expert
Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Toner - 6.4 oz:
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!!!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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!

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
About Me Brand Buyer
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!
I have normal to dry, olive tone skin. I was nervous to try this because I am prone to cystic acne and my skin gets sensitive with new products. However, I'm so glad I did. I am just getting ready to order my second bottle of this and will never go back to a drugstore toner as this leaves my face feeling moisturized and clean. I use this in the morning and evening after cleansing. It's a larger bottle that goes a long way (I ordered on Feb. 28 and am ordering a second bottle today - May 14) and was worth the price in my opinion, especially if you get it on sale!
Perfect for My Weird Skin
from Salem, Oregon
This stuff really keeps my skin from becoming irritated. I have extremely dry skin that is prone to cystic acne breakouts. I've found that minimizing inflammation helps keep breakouts to a minimum. I use this toner on my face and neck every day after washing. My nighttime routine is complicated - I exfoliate with my Clarisonic and use AHA and BHA after this toner. This has really kept my face and neck clear of acne.

Not bad but there are better
from Chicago, IL
I tried the skin recover line because my face was recovering from a bad reaction to other products. This toner was good and very gentle but I ended up preferring the Skin balancing toner which was better for my combination skin
