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.

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.

Can't live without!

I've used this for a long time. I ran out awhile ago and could not believe the difference in my skin texture - I had forgotten how large my pores were. The texture of my skin was like an orange again - large pores and rough looking. Needless to say, I will ensure I won't run out of this toner again! It was a good reminder of how well it actually works. My oily skin still needs a touch up midday but at least the texture is smooth and nice feeling. I can't live without this toner!

Never want to live without

I thought this toner wouldn't be very hydrating as it's for oily skin... but I'm glad I tried it because it's the best hydrating toner ever. I have oily dehydrated skin and need a lot of hydration but like to avoid oils. This toner immediately makes your skin feel plump, smooth, and bouncy. It's very watery so you can put on multiple layers and your skin just drinks it up. If you compare this to the hydralight toner which is quite basic, this has much more beneficial ingredients such as ceramides, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide and is just all around a more substantial product. I also like that it isn't heavy in silicones (I can't see any in the ingredients...) so subsequent products absorb more easily. If you're looking for a lightweight but very hydrating toner, try this one!

Fantastic for All Skin Types

When I first found out about Paula's Choice, I started with the Skin Balancing line. This toner was the first ever toner I tried, and I was amazed at the immediate results. I have acne prone, combination/oily skin, and this took care of that! My face would be a little flakey after using the Skin Balancing Pore Reducing Cleanser, but after I put on this toner it got rid of my flakey spots AND my oily spots (stupid combination skin). It also aided in minimizing my canyon-sized pores!

My absolute favourite product!

5

The perfect toner for my skin which is sort of on the oily side of combination. I've been using it for years and could not go without it. It feels so good, and my skin loves it. I'm about to turn 60 and I know this product is one reason no one can ever guess my age. I have to agree with the reviewer who wished this was available in travel size, I do too. I take the sample packs on trips but it's kind of a messy solution . . . a small travel size option would be so helpful. Actually considered trying another toner in travel size but noticed there are none. Why no travel size toners?

Love this Toner

I have used this product for years. I tried the Resist version and decided this toner worked best for me (less expensive and more of it). I have an oily T-zone. My skin will not let me forget this step: my skin feels dry if I don't use this toner after cleansing. When I was younger, it was my only moisturizer (besides Paula's sunscreen). I have never had problems with sensitivity or any kind of irritation using this product. It's been a staple in my skin care routine since Paula introduced it.

Holy Grail and Desert Island product for me!

If I had to keep to only one Paula's Choice product, this one would be it. I have been using it for many years. My skin just does not feel "right" without it. I ran out of it on a long trip to Australia last summer and my skin just was never as glowy or comfortable as usual when using this toner. I would bathe in this stuff if I could.

I tried this toner on a whim -- I was using the Resist line toner for normal/dry skin and was happy with it, but this toner was on sale so I gave it a shot. I do have oily/combination skin, acne prone, large pores but I'm also conscious of wanting to diminish the development of fine lines and wrinkles as I age and usually have been using my toner as an extra base layer of moisture. First, I appreciated the larger bottle compared to the Resist line... for something I use twice a day, I don't like running out too quickly! Initially, I wasn't blown away... I kinda missed the extra moisture from the Resist toner. But I kept using it. I was going through some retinoid sensitivity and this toner felt soothing and was definitely non-irritating. About 2/3rds way through the bottle, I really could tell a difference in my skin balance (not overproducing oil, but not dry either) and pore size, and my skin looked more youthful, firm, and refined. I truly think my pores on my nose and cheeks look tighter. I am going to continue to use this formula for that reason alone!

Excellent Toner For Oily, Sensitive Skin

5

I have oily, breakout prone, super sensitive skin and Skin Balancing toner has worked wonders. My skin is smoother, pore size on my nose has been reduced, plus it's as light as water and absorbs within seconds. I use mild (.025%) tretinoin cream at night so only use toner in the morning and this product does not cause breakouts or irritate my sensitive skin at all. It took about four weeks to see a significant change in my skin. I've been using it for over two months now and continue to see improvement. As with any skin care product, give it time to work. Don't believe the crazy false hype you hear in TV commercials about products that claim to work in a week. Repairing and improving skin takes time and this product has delivered amazing results!

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!
