Minimize fine lines and discoloration. The exfoliating powers of citrus extracts and the soothing nature of aloe and seaweed extracts make this toner perfect for dull, dry and sensitive complexions. Citrus naturally breaks down pore congestion and dead skin cells for a healthy, refreshed glow. Also a solution for those suffering with pigmentation and discoloration of the skin. Alcohol free.
Twice daily after cleansing, pat skin dry and apply lotion-dampened cotton to skin, wiping in an outward direction until cotton comes up clean. Avoid eye area. Follow with moisturizer or night cream.

          Great serum. I have noticed my skin is softer and seems to help my other night creams absorb in my skin easier. I have also noticed my hyper-pigmentation fading slightly.

            I didn't know I was missing a step in my daily facial cleansing until I went to ulta. I asked a sales person what product they recommend for combination skin that has few ingredients in it and affordable. This product is great and very happy with my purchase. I also have the moisturizer too and love it!

              Second time buying this toner now and it will officially be a staple in my skincare routine. I have combination skin and deal with leftover marks on my skin. This is alcohol free so great for sensitive/dry skin but my t zone tends to get oily and this leaves my skin feeling clean. In part with other products targeting my marks I feel this product has helped a lot with any discoloration I had!

                I am switching over to all Mario Badescu products in my skin care regimen and I found that this toner works the best for my crazed, combo skin lol. No irritation but gently exfoliates. I use after the Mario B cleanser of choice 2x daily. Did not cause breakouts and actually helped heal current ones I had. I have been using for about 2 .5 weeks now and I hope it continues to provide great results.
                A little goes a long way.

                    I'm really liking this toner. I have very sensitive, acne-prone skin and noticed I've starting seeing some sun damage. This toner helps reduce my acne and I think it's slowly helping with the sun damage as well.

                          If you do not have a sensitivity to glycolic acid, you should try our Anti Aging Kit. It features both our glycolic acid-based cleanser and toner. http://www.ulta.com/anti-aging-kit?productId=xlsImpprod6200815
                          If you are sensitive to glycolic acid, then the Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion is a better option for you.
