    Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Toner:

    I apply this after washing my face and before applying my moisturizer. It makes my skin feel great and it removes any make up from my pores that didn't come off when washing my face. My face feels so clean and freaks after using this.

                  Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Toner:

                  Everyone keeps commenting "my face looks/feels great." Well, what does that mean exactly? A consultant at Ukta helped me find products to get rid of my redness and broken capillaries in my cheeks. Well, this is not the product to help with those issues. I'm very disappointed that the consultant led me to this product when in fact it has nothing to do with improving redness or broken capillaries in my cheeks and facial area. It does have a nice refreshing citrus smell and does seem to remove the remaining make up left over from washing my face with a facial cleanser; however, this is the only thing that I saw that this product is useful for.

                        I love this toner. I was never someone who used a toner because I didn't see the point in it. However, I picked this one up one day because I figured I should try one out. After using the whole bottle I still didn't think it made much of a difference until I didn't repurchase when I ran put and immediately noticed a difference. I repurchased it and am in love with it. I do like that it is a spray bottle because it is convenient, but I feel like I tend to use more than I need with it. Besides that I LOVE this toner.

                            Essential-C Toner is designed to restore balance and supply the skin antioxidants. If you are working on evening out texture on your elbow an knees I would try our Rapid Resurfacing Peel. They come in a convenient wipe that can be used on your face, neck, elbows and knees.
