        I use this every A.M. after cleansing, gets my very oily skin ready for makeup. Since my skin is also aging I find the toners I used when I was younger seem a little harsh & this one just leaves my skin feeling healthy & nicely balanced.

          After having a lot of skin problems and reactions to many products I started trying Mario products and they actually saved my skin. Now I only use Mario for everything and my skin has never been better. They are also fairly inexpensive for what you're getting and the products seem to last forever.
