              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.

Wanting to keep wrinkles at bay and keep skin tight are my two main Objectives. Which toner? Which cleanser? Which lotion? Have been using the orange line the most plus I LOVE the invisible ahead. Help! As I am need of ordering!
