Most Helpful Positive Review i would purchase again
to be honest i am not huge on toners, ive experimented before- even making my own at home and found it didnt really add a TON of a difference to my skin routine. HOWEVER, because i am required to wear a mask all day at work right now, i was interested and open to trying a toner from a line specifically targeting acne. i truly enjoyed this toner. it is a large amount and the packaging is perfect for applying it to a cotton par to swipe on your face after washing it. i felt a cool sensation after using it that made me feel as though it was really making a difference to my skin. now i must add a word of caution, my entire life i have been an oily queen, the skin on my face has no off button when it comes to oil. i did find using this habitually morning and night following the use of an acne targeting facewash was leaving my skin a liiiittle bit dry in a few places. i would suggest using once daily, especially for those with drier skin. in conclusion, as someone who never found interest in toners, i WOULD purchase this again when i run out. i felt it did what it said, it felt good on my skin and youre getting a lot of product!
Most Helpful Critical Review BEWARE PLEASE
Please please please read my submission prior to your purchase. I have relatively sensitive/acne prone skin, due to the immense heat here in Vegas, my skin has been misbehaving more than usual. Prior to using this, I had a few blemishes, nothing incredibly distinct nor bothersome. I figured I would try this out, and let me tell you friend, this is an ABSOLUTE NO. I am an esthetician specialist and have been for 3 years, and identified ABUNDANT, shimmering plastic-like shards upon my closer investigation of the product. Lift the bottle up, and with your phone's flashlight, you'll see the millions of shimmering, plastic shards scattered at the bottom of the component. The ingredient list had no display of anything that this could potentially be, which lead me to believe that this is what cause massive irritation in my skin. Redness, scratches, and sudden bursts of inflammation took over. Existing reviews seem to be positive, which is normal considering this formula has few great ingredients such as the Salicylic Acid 2% and Aloe, yet the neighboring ingredients being the immense concentration of alcohols and plastic shards, are extremely dangerous to the skin. Please, pass on this and try a more beneficial toner from the mass selection that Ulta offers.
Reviewed by 273 customers Alcohol is 2nd ingredient

Alcohol is 2nd ingredient and it definitely makes your face dry up like a raisin.
Pacifica y'all definitely need to reformulate this toner that will suit oily sensitive skin.
Buyers don't fall for advertisements/marketing of overly hyped products, there's more toners out there that's alcohol free and contains skin friends ingredient that will nourish your skin.
good for an astringent!

I definitely wouldnt use this type of product on a regular basis basically because I fear that overdrying would kick my oil production into overdrive, but the ingredients are decent for an astringent when Im actively breaking out, etc
love love love

I was a little worried by the stronger smell, but it didnt harm, or dry out, my skin. Definitely choosing this for my skincare routine.
Perfect for spraying on the inside of mask
Londa from Huntsville Al
Got this to spray on the inside of my masks and it has worked to keep the maskne away!! Not a strong smell and drys quickly!

I absolutely love this astringent. I use it after cleansing my skin and if there is any remaining residue it wipes it right off. Its not too drying for being an astringent & Ive noticed less acne since I started using this
vanessaj09e5 from undisclosed
I've been very impressed by the whole line of Pacifica. Its free of animal cruelty, it has a light cucumber smell that is not over powering. The cleaning agents isn't strong or irritating to skin (it does carry a disclaimer) but it feel great. It doesn't leave a tight feeling on your skin like other brands/products I've used.
serinawf0ad from undisclosed
I like this product. I feel that if it is used too much it can be very drying and harsh on the skin.
Pros and cons
emileebc960 from undisclosed
Pros are that this stuff works and I'll definitely be buying more once it's out. This one pro out weighs it's cons. Cons are: I hate the smell. I usually hold my breath when applying because it is so intense. It says on the bottle that it's supposed to help clear pores along with all of its other great things. It helps in all areas except my pores. If the smell wasn't so strong I might use it twice a day but I can't handle the scent so I only use at night.

It has a cooling feeling when applying to your face and then you need to allow that time to dry. Perfect for people with oily skin. Beautiful packaging and easy to use.
Don't waste your time
Reese from Chicago, IL
I really wanted to love this toner. However, my skin was literally burning immediately after using this product. I will definitely be returning this product. Please don't waste your time purchasing this product.
Skin hated it
Lovelyday20 from Ky
There's something in here my skin hated , broke me out worse . I was so surprised. I stopped and tried again and broke out even worse again .
Clean smell and quick absorbing
bailliew from undisclosed
I hesitate to overuse astringents because my skin dries out easily and I was worried about that happening with this. Thankfully, this product isnt over drying and has a clean, subtle scent.
sallyh620 from undisclosed
I like it but I also don't. First of all because of the acne medication and niacinamide it does feel like it's doing it's job. My face feels clean and less oily. I also wasn't sure if it was toner or not, but that's what I used it as. However, I feel slight burning sensations around on my nose from time to time and it has a slight bearable pain but is still uncomfortable. why that happens I'm not sure. could be that area is sensitive but who knows. no allergic reactions aside from that happening from time to time. ALSO becareful putting it on you face if you have an open cut/pore!!
*ALSO!! I cut out every other product I was using and slowly reintroduced it to make sure I was not allergic and was feeling and seeing its full effects!

hgryseels from undisclosed
I love using this product after Ive cleansed and before I moisturize. It gives me that extra clean feeling I love. It helped dry out some of my spots. I suggest going in with a god moisturizer after since it can dry you out
Perfect for Acne
kaitlynm33 from undisclosed

Tingles To Joy
glam1forev from undisclosed
I really liked how this made my skin feel. First time I used it I will admit it tingled a bit but it went away after a few seconds. I can really feel it working on my acne. Really dried out those zits. Really cleans the face. You are gonna be so surprised once you take a look at your cotton ball (or whatever product you use to wipe astringent on your face. It can be a bit drying so indefinitely cautiously if you're prone to peeling or if you have dry skin. But it definitely makes my face feel clean. DEFINITELY believe that this product is one of the most important and effective products in this set. Like, I feel like you NEED this!
jen_waz from undisclosed
This is a great product! This is my first time trying this brand, but I liked the fact that it helped with any smaller bumps or acne that I had. The packaging is really pretty and Id recommend it to others.
Acne Warrior Clearing Astringent
jasah1 from undisclosed
This product has cleared up my skin so much! Its very effective! I was not disappointed at all! I wouldnt changed a thing about this product! It has very excellent packaging!
daniellew5 from undisclosed
this product would probably be great for very oily skin, but unfortunately for my dry/combo skin, this just stripped my moisture away. I got very flaky and had to stop using it. I really wanted this to work, but I have to pass on it!
fwmelissa from undisclosed
This made my oily skin feel normal. My skin wasnt feeling dry after which was great! But I do wish it didnt have alcohol and witch hazel in it.
dana_alami from undisclosed
Im truly impressed by this entire line of skin care products! The scent is not my favorite but its not too bad. Otherwise I love it!
Pacifica Clearing astringent
vaibhupatel_03 from undisclosed
This product is great for acne clearing, the packaging is supercute,
It is too strong, when I started using it at first my skin started burning but they warn about that in the directions! #acnewarrior
gizmok7 from undisclosed
This toner is amazing. You can really feel it working. Its strong but not drying. I typically experience drying with toner but this one is perfect. Also its a lot of product for such a low price!!
Super clean pores
jacligocki from undisclosed
I used to use a similar product back when I was 15. I stopped using it and forgot about it. Now that I have received this all I can think is how dirty my skin feels if I DONT apply this after removing my makeup and before my bedtime skincare routine. Love it!
