Nothing

By Alicia

from Kansas

Comments about Michael Todd Beauty Online Only Blue Green Algae Antibacterial Toner:

I was on the hunt for a good facial toner to remove any left over impurities on my face. This did absolutely nothing for my skin! The smell is almost over powering and it leaves quite a bit of a oily residue. I used until gone but I will not be repurchasing.

  • Does not remove mascara

  • Tightening pores

Comments about Michael Todd Beauty Online Only Blue Green Algae Antibacterial Toner:

I'm on my second bottle of this and I can definitely say this product smells quite different than before. It is still a great product and seems to be working the same but it doesn't smell as good as it used to so I am a bit disappointed. That being said, I do love this product. It removes concealer, powder, dirt, and grime with ease and leaves my skin looking smooth and super soft.

    • Don't bother with this product!

    Comments about Michael Todd Beauty Online Only Blue Green Algae Antibacterial Toner:

    This toner was totally ineffective... did nothing for my skin at all. The such strong and unpleasant smell turned me off even more so. Don't waste your money, people!!!
    Mornings: I use Philosophy face wash, a toner (NOT this one), Belief moisturizing eye bomb, and First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream.
    Nights: I take off my makeup with Simple Micellar makeup wipes, the same cleanser, a toner (again NOT this one), the same eye cream, and Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer

      I just started using this product and I have been using it every night since I got it. Overall my face has had less breakouts. It is a little drying so I make sure to follow it up with a moisturizer. It does leave a tingly feeling so I'm wondering if that happens to everone or I may be allergic to it? Overall it is a great timer and I think it is very affordable.

      from KL, Malaysia

      Pros

      • All good with me

      Cons

      • Can't think of any

      Best Uses

        Comments about Michael Todd Beauty Online Only Blue Green Algae Antibacterial Toner:

        Omg what can I say, this is a great invention. Together with other products like the Charcoal Detox cleanser, Jojoba Scrub, Soniclear, moisturizres and Kaolin Clay mask (I use almost all Michael Todd facial products) it's given me a proud confidence that rosacea is a friend instead of a competitor.

        I also have the Lemon Toner (I think its production has since discontinued) but I like this one better. I love all MT's products.

          • Gentle
          • Leaves Clean Feel

          Comments about Michael Todd Beauty Online Only Blue Green Algae Antibacterial Toner:

          I've been struggling with acne my entire life, well 3 decades at least. I have oily (combination in the winter), photosensitive (redhead), sensitive (fair), mature, acne-prone skin. I've experimented with all kinds of products over the years and have found that less is more and sticking to a very specific regime of ingredients has been the only thing to lessen the eruption of cystic acne. I cannot use heavy masks or scrubs (paper masks or light, easily washable clay masks are ok).

          Thankfully, my cystic acne is better managed these days. However, my face is not perfect and I wanted to try toners in hopes of boosting the efficacy of my other products. I've tried several lines of products (Juice Beauty, Paula's Choice, etc.) and they were all too harsh or ineffective for me. On a whim, I looked up antibacterial, alcohol-free toners and this MT Blue Algae Toner appeared. Explain to me why they put alcohol in toners in the first place? But I digress. I was eager to give this a shot, so I decided to give it a test run for a month and see if it was worth all of the hype.

          For the first month I literally just washed my face, used this toner, and moisturizer. I did break out in tiny bumps in areas I normally don't break out in and I found this did little to nothing to lessen the oiliness of my complexion. After a month, I re-incorporated my BP treatment into my regime and my oil is now 'better controlled.' I can't say for sure if this is enhancing the quality of my treatment or improving the appearance of my skin as again, it did initially cause breakouts and didn't combat oiliness. I'm going to continue to use this in conjunction with my BP to see if it helps. For now, the introduction of the BP is controlling the oil and my breakouts are healing. I don't believe I have new ones, but I would have expected a toner for acne prone skill to have done more than break me out, given the supposed acne fighting ingredients. But it IS non-drying & safe to use along my neck.

              A:

              The Charcoal Detox Cleanser and Blue Green Algae are great products for Oily and Blemish Prone Skin. Unfortunately, there is not a Michael Todd Beauty Moisturizer at Ulta that we recommend for this skin type.

          • Q:

            I have a few breakouts on my skin and I simply can not find anything to technically clear it and to not strip my skin. Is this a good product to use?

              A:

              This is an excellent toner to help promote skin balance. Ideally, it should be used after cleansing/exfoliation and before a treatment serum to properly prep the skin. The natural soothing marine extracts will help soothe the skin without stripping the skin of its natural balance.

              A:

              The Blue Green Algae Toner is ideal for use once or twice daily. You should start out using one time daily and then gradually increase usage as your skin acclimates.

          • Q:

            I am looking into the addition of more anti aging products into my skincare routine, but my skin tends to be on the oily/combination side. Should I use the algae toner or this one and what other products are recommended to reduce fine lines?
            Asked on 12/9/2016 by Budget friendly beauty from Georgia

            1 answer

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              The Blue Green Algae Toner would be an ideal choice for you. It will help keep over-oil production in check while prepping the skin for next steps. We also suggest the Honey and Oat Gentle Cleanser, KNU Anti-Aging Face Lift Serum and the Intensive Cream Eye Treatment. All of these products are a good fit for somewhat oily skin to target aging. We also recommend the Pumpkin Enzyme Mask as a weekly enzyme and glycolic acid mask to help smooth the look of fine lines, refine pores and improve the youthfulness of your complexion.
