My skin loves this stuff
About Me Brand Buyer
Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Toner - 6.4 oz:
This toner is awesome. I have dry acne prone skin and this stuff brightens my skin and leaves it smoother, softer, and with a healthy shine to it. It also seems to make any products I use on top of it (2% BHA Liquid, Moisture Boost Cream, and some topical acne treatments) absorb more easily. Overall this is a win, people with dry skin and especially acne who think they don't need a toner in their regimen, you should seriously give this a try.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I do use this everyday but perfect for when I give myself a chemical peel or a facial. Love this product. Really calms my skin, hydrates it. My skin feels clean, soft, plump.
Service and delivery comments:
My Fav PC Product Ever
from orange county
I've always hated toners because they always left my acne prone skin stinging and dry, but not this one! Holy moley this milky toner is sooooo soothing and mositurizing. I've never felt anything like it. It just sinks into my skin like a dream and leaves it baby soft (with no redness). I use this day and night and have already ordered another bottle because I just cant be without it! I want to bathe in this stuff!
Very quick delivery as always.
Don't know what I'd do without this product

About Me Budget Buyer
This is the only toner I've ever found to be useful. I've taken it out of my routine a few times to see what happens, and inevitably my skin is drier and my rosacea becomes more active. I put the product in a spray bottle and mist my skin twice a day after very gentle cleansing, then wipe down with cotton. Perfect. I'd buy this in quarts if PC sold it!
Always prompt, always just as ordered.

Best toner ever!!
from Chicago, IL
I use this only once a day, but I see significant improvement every time I use it! It hydrates my skin so well I barely use much moisturizer. It evens complexion, reduces redness, and smooths texture! I love this toner.

from Los Angeles
I tried nearly every Paula's Choice toner, and Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner has been the one I keep going back to. It is a water-weight translucent liquid with a mild, natural (but fragrance-free) scent. My skin is normal to oily with dry areas, and I have found this toner to be more "normalizing" or "balancing" than products that are specifically marketed for that purpose. It has proven to be non-irritating, and in fact, is quite soothing to any sensitive areas I might have.For the AM: I don't use this every morning. However, when I need a little extra boost of moisture, I apply with clean hands the first step after cleansing, and before BHA. When used in this way, the toner plumps my skin without being oily or heavy, and provides a delicate amount of hydration that enhances application of subsequent products.For the PM: I use a small amount on a very thin cotton pad to remove traces of sunscreen and makeup leftover from cleansing, and to prepare my skin for subsequent treatments. Since I alternate Renova and AHA, which can be slightly irritating at times, the soothing quality of this toner is very welcome.I waited a long time to review this product, comparing it thoroughly to other products and finishing one bottle over a period of around 9 months. I was skeptical at first that an enriched toner would make so much difference in my skincare routine, especially since my skin used to be a complete oil slick before I learned to use milder cleansers/toners in order to avoid overproduction of oil. Words can hardly do justice to how well this product works for me, but needless to say, it will be my go-to from now on.

Calming and moisturizing
I have extremely dry sensitive skin with moderately severe rosacea. About a month ago I did a complete overhaul of my skin care routine and now approximately 90% of the products I use are Paula's Choice brand. I believe this toner is one of the most beneficial of the new products I'm using. It's calming and moisturizing, not at all greasy or sticky, and I think it helps my skin absorb other products better. My skin also looks less red and feels less irritated overall. I might switch to something a little less moisturizing in the summer, but I'll definitely buy this product again for use during fall and winter.

Best friend for dry skin
from Washington, DC
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.

Worth the splurge
from SF, CA
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.
