Additional Information

Why is it different?
SKIN BALANCING Pore-Reducing Toner helps balance skin with antioxidants and hydrating ceramides, making oily areas less noticeable and skin more even, smooth, moisturized, and protected. It is an essential step in any skincare routine to renew skin after cleansing. Can also help remove the last traces of makeup.

Collapse
What does it do?
Antioxidants, soothing plant extracts and niacinamide help tone down oily skin and minimize pore size. Its exceptionally lightweight liquid formula feels weightless on skin but still provides high-quality hydration to diminish dry flaky areas of skin.

How to use

After cleansing, apply toner to a cotton pad and gently stroke over face and neck. Do not rinse. Follow with the rest of your morning or evening skincare routine. For daytime, finish with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.

    Fantastic toner for all skin types. My skin can get quite dry, but it also prone to breakouts. This is the best toner I have found. It leaves skin clean and soft. No tightness, no smell, no sting, no stickiness. Please don't ever discontinue this!

    Must Have for Large Pores and Oily Skin

        This toner is a must-have in my routine and I have tried dozens and dozens over my lifetime. I have oily skin and enlarged pores, but also some anti-aging concerns as well. This toner is gentle and hydrating while also leaving me feeling oil-free and refreshed. I tried stopping it and using another toner and within a week my face was out-of-control oily by mid-day and my pores were more noticeable. I highly recommend!

          Great for dry skin, "summer oily" T Zone area

            I have dry skin, especially in Canada's winter months, but in summer humid heat, my face tends to get oily in my T zone. I love that this helps to stop acne in my nose and chin area. After cleaning with Resist, I use this toner and get a "squeaky clean" canvas for my foundation and cover up, knowing it won't slide off. Depending on the weather, I have Skin Recovery for dry heat, and in winter months, I switch up between Resist toner and skin recovery. Awesome product!

              I will repurchase this forever. Please never stop making it. I started struggling with clogged pores when I was 24 and eventually stopped having the problem within a week of starting to use this product. I think it is important to use a toner like this on a cotton pad to make sure every last trace of your cleanser, makeup, sunscreen, etc. is washed off (especially behind the ears, around the hairline, and other harder-to-rinse areas) and your face is totally clean before bed.

                Comments about SKIN BALANCING Pore-Reducing Toner - 6.4 oz:

                This product worked really well for managing oil and felt really great on my skin. The con is that when I was using it I couldnt figure out why my skin was older and older looking, very dull and aging. I didn't believe it was anything I was using until I experimented and stopped using this toner to see what would happen. After a few days my skin got its radiant glow back and I looked younger again! I will keep looking for something else to manage my oil control.

                    I'm 35 and have oily break out prone skin. Within a couple hours of arriving to work in the morning my face would be super oily. I'd have to blot at least 3 times during an 8 hour work day and have always been very conscious of it, boo! But..not anymore! I've been using the skin balancing toner for about a month now and the results were immediate. My skin texture changed very noticeably. The larger pores on my face have shrunken and the oiliness has been significantly reduced! I don't even think about it anymore! I only blot once a day. It's worth mentioning that I started using Paula's Choice skin balancing spf at the same time. These 2 products work really well to keep my skin in check during the day under my makeup. (I also use Clear extra strength bha to prevent acne, another must have). I've been using PC products for years and I feel like I finally found the combination that's perfect for my skin. And the right makeup thanks to her awesome reviews. Hope this is helpful!

                      Comments about SKIN BALANCING Pore-Reducing Toner - 6.4 oz:

                      This is my second time using this toner. The first time was when Hydralight toner was discontinued and I needed an alternative. I wasn't impressed the first time, so I moved on to the Resist lightweight toner and didn't like that one, my pores were huge. I came back to Skin Balancing and within 3 uses, my pores are looking about 50% smaller. Mind you, I am also using C15 Booster with Vitamin C, E and Ferulic Acid, Resist AHA 10% Weekly Treatment, 2% BHA Liquid, and Clinical 1% Retinol...I'm sure those help as well. However, I was already using those other products before starting back on Skin Balancing toner.

                      Delivery could be faster to Canada. But the products always arrive in good condition.

                        I had tried several toners, including PC's hydralight and Resist but this skin balancing is just the right one for my skin. I shouldn't say the rest are not good, it's just that it's formulated for different skin types and conditions. Everyone's skin is different and oil control has always been an issue for me. I started off with the Resist line and it was way too much for my skin though I do love the anti-aging properties within despite the price tag. Hydralight toner works well for me but it had a smell plus it does stinks a bit. 'Cos of it's discontinuation, I made a decision to try this and it's sooooooo much better. Cleans well, scent free and most importantly it serves a good base for exfoliation. Oiliness is in much better control and I rarely had breakouts now compared to last time.
