Why is it different?

CALM Redness Relief Toner for Normal to Dry Skin is a beneficial milky fluid with a unique mix of hydrating, skin-replenishing, and anti-aging ingredients that smooth, soften, and visibly lessen redness. It is an essential step in any skincare routine to renew skin after cleansing. Can also help remove the last traces of makeup.

What does it do?

Instantly soothes sensitive skin while its specialized mix of antioxidants and skin-replenishing ingredients nourishes and hydrates for visibly healthier-looking, more resilient skin. With ongoing use, helps fight visible signs of redness and wrinkles. It is gentle enough even for skin prone to rosacea.

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.

Ratings & Reviews

This is fantastic for combination skin in winter


I switched to this once the weather became colder and more dry. I adore this toner as it still doesn't contain oils but contains fatty acids and hydrating ingredients to replenish my skin and leave it soft. It is so soothing yet not heavy. It can be applied with a cotton pad or your hands. I have an extra bottle on hand in case I run out. This will be a staple all winter long!




Can't live without it


I never thought I needed a toner, and then I tried Calm Redness Relief toner. I use in place of moisturizer morning and evening, and get an instant calming on my rosacea prone skin. It imparts the perfect amount of moisture without ever being greasy. For the love of all that is holy, please do not change or discontinue this toner! I cannt live without!!

REDNESS almost totally gone!


I LOVE this product! It is slightly creamy and doesn't burn (even with breakouts) or leave my extremely sensitive, fair skin feeling dry at all. This is a little more expensive than other PC toners, but I think well worth it to keep my normally irritated and red face HAPPY. I highly recommend this toner!!!

Holy grail toner.


I've been using this product ever since I discovered Paula's Choice. It's my favorite for my somewhat sensitive skin. It feels so light & hydrating without being greasy at all. I love that it calms my skin with the licorice extract & other soothing ingredients. I really love it for after I shave my face as well. This toner is perfect IMO. Highly recommend for any skin type, thanks Paula!

Great product I'm already on my second bottle!


I have fair skin with slight redness that is very dry. This toner does reduce the redness in my skin and leaves me hydrated. I'm in the process of purchasing my second bottle.

It is very good


This product is great. I use it twice a day for breakouts on my extra sensitive skin. It also soothes and reduces redness. Love it. I'm ordering this toner and cleanser from another collection for acne prone skin the most. Was frustrated to see this product got bad reviews. Hopefully Paula doesn't discontinue this one. It's frustrating every time I find that one of my faves is not available any more

Works great on my hypersensitive neck


I use this product on the hypersensitive skin on my neck and behind my knees. It gently hydrates and soothes without causing any irritation or redness. I can't understand why this super product isn't more highly rated.

favorite toner


I've never had a toner that didn't smell like garbage until this one. Nice packaging. Thick in texture and I can actually feel it working.




I love this toner. So gentle and calming


I have found my favorite line in this new CALM line. I just love everything CALM for dry skin. My skin is so sensitive, easy to break out and often have dry patches. I have tried the Resist Replenishing toner and while i like that too, I love this better. I feel like this fits my skin type much better. This CALM line really does it job in calming redness and breakouts. I see instant results and loving it right away. Love love! Thankyou for creating this CALM line for people who have complicated skin conditions like me! (Dry, acne prone and super sensitive).

One of the standout PC products for me!


Being Canadian and with our weak dollar right now, I am particularly demanding of the products I am willing to order from the US. They have to be unique formulations that I can't dupe for less $$ locally, and be effective for my skin concerns. This product is one of those irreplaceable superstars that is worth the trouble and expense for me. I have type 1 rosacea, and this toner is soothing and calming like few other things I have found. I apply with my fingers, quite liberally on my cheeks and nose twice a day. When I am having a flare up, this will reduce the redness for me pretty well immediately upon application. I have looked extensively for other toners/emulsions/essences with similar ingredients, and have yet to find anything that remotely compares. As far as the sheer number of proven skin soothing ingredients, and the lack of irritants such as fragrance and alcohol, I believe this product is unbeatable, really at any price...which annoys me every time I crack open my wallet and face that exchange rate, but it is what it is. I believe this product is unique, and worth trying for anyone with red, sensitive skin.
