    Very comparable to the Petra Pixi Toner which I've used for over a year now. I switched to this because you get more for the same price. I'm in love with it!

                    I started using this twice a day with the enzyme cleansing gel and the cucumber cleansing lotion and my skin hasn't looked this good in a long time. My acne scars are fading, my skin is clearing up, and it's only been a week. Use it with a cotton pad, a little goes a long way!

                        Thought I would give it a try since it has pretty good reviews. But after using this, my skin started break out and I kept getting those deep, under the skin pimples that hurt. Don't think I'll be using it again.

                          I use this product as it says to on the back- after washing my face in the morning and at night. I break out super easily and this 100% helped. All break outs went away and I have even noticed it start smoothing out my skin and any spots I had. It dried out my skin a tiny bit but nothing moisturizer couldn't fix. I love this brand and this is a must buy!

                              A:

                              Our Glycolic Acid Toner can be used on combination skin to help reduce uneven texture and congestion. This would be a great option if you do not have acne to help smooth and brighten the skin. If you are dry, our Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion can be used instead. This contains citrus extracts that naturally break down pore congestion and dead skin cells for a healthy, refreshed glow.

                              While our Glycolic Acid Toner is not recommended for sensitive skin. Our Aloe Vera Toner is our mildest toner for the most sensitive and dry skin. Aloe vera formula soothes irritation and removes pore clogging debris from skin's surface.
