Rated 4.6 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Works Pretty Well, Just WAY Overpriced
I am an ingredient junkie, and while this formulation doesn't have the "safest" ingredients, the ones used are far from being harmful. It's just that the Calendula Extract, Articum Lappa Extract and Allantoin ALL come AFTER very cheap, generic ingredients. Sure, the ones listed above are relatively "premium" but I mean come on. Even the preservative (Methylparaben) is listed before any of those ingredients. I wanted to give it 3 stars because of how overpriced it is, and how it should be priced like their Cucumber Toner, BUT it does perform very well for oily & sensitive skin -- which is very hard to find.
**As a note, here are all the ingredients that come before Calendula (for which the product was named): Water, Propylene Glycol (a little scary as the 2nd most concentrated ingredient), Pentylene Glycol, Methylparaben and Disodium EDTA.
Most Helpful Critical Review It's almost expired.
It was my first time to shop Kiehl's product online, but I am really disappointed! The Calendula Toner they sent to me is made two years ago and it's almost expired. I also got a delux sample of Creme de crop, but it's expired and the color has already changed. Although I really like the effect of Calendula Toner, but be careful of the expiration data when you are shopping online.

Beli from NJ
I received this toner as a sample. I was skeptical of trying it because I have sensitive skin and suffer from mild Rosacea. I first used their face cleanser and with a wet face, I used this toner, rinse this toner off because of my sensitivity, and applied a natural ingredients moisturizer. Within seconds, I noticed my face was burned. I had large red patches, so I quickly washed my face again with my regular cleanser and only apply a gentle oil to my face to let it rest from any harsh ingredients. Never again will I use this on my sensitive skin. :(
Didn't workout good for me
Moni from Edinburg, TX
I usually use the Calendula Foam Wash (which is great) and wanted to try out the toner. The first day after I applied it I got cystic acne. I tried it again for the next few days getting got more acne. I stopped using it and my face cleared up again. I bought the smaller one just to try it out, if you want to try something new buy the small or travel size. Didn't work for me, but it might to you.
Kate from North carolina
This is probably the worst toner I've ever used. When I first started using I liked it , it's not super harsh on the skin and doesn't dry u out. A couple of days after using it I got horrible cluster breakouts on my cheeks and so did my mom! Not worth the money at all.
Nice scent and dewy effect
AndyK from New York, NY, USA
I first received this as a gift from a friend and most recently just placed my first purchase. What I love about this is it actually gave me a dewy effect on my skin but without it making it feel or look like I have greasy skin. I love the scent. Instead of putting it on cotton, I put the container in a spritzer/sprayer and will spray this on my face. It's quite refreshing and gave a nice texture to my skin and I love the scent of the product!
PSA: Allergic to RAGWEED? Don't use this!
Georgia Mom from Marietta, GA
First of all, I love Kiehl's! Since I've never heard of Calendula before, I did a little research. Good thing I did because if you are allergic to RAGWEED or other plants in the Asteraceae/Compositae family (marigolds, chrysanthemums, daisies) you should NOT use products with Calendula. I'm highly allergic to ragweed, so this is a no-go for me. Gave this an average rating because it might work for some.
I love love love love love kiehl's

Broken bottle(online ordering)
LIPIPI from undisclosed
I have been a big fan of Kiehl's for a couple of years and this toner is definitely one of my favorite. Recently I have to order everything online, but, unfortunately, this time the product I got was damaged. The toner itself definitely worths a 5-star but the damaged bottle is a bummer.
Always the best toner!
Tnllc from Monterey Park, CA
I have been used this toner for several years. Love the smell and it feels comfort after applying. Great product. Will keep using it ^^
Solid product, didn't notice much from it
cleanfaceclub from Chicago, IL, USA
I liked this likely because I just like using a toner in my routine. I didn't notice that this did much -- if anything -- for my skin, despite daily use. Further, once the bottle gets down to about a third full, you start getting pieces of the flower petal on your cotton pad...and then it ends up sticking on your skin. It smells really nice and is refreshing, but I will not be buying it again.
Great product but poor bottle packaging
fayelatte from Taguig City, Metro Manila, Philippines
I love that it made my skin supple and soft that's why I bought a 2nd bottle. I brought it for traveling and almost half of the contents spilled. I thought it was my fault all along for not making sure the cap was secured. When I brought it for another one of my travels, I made sure the cap was tightly secured, but after my 8 hr flight, all of the contents still spilled.
Love this toner
CC from Indiana
I have very sensitive skin, dry skin. This toner has calmed my skin and smells wonderful. Highly recommend.
Particles in the bottle
Effiestl from St. Louis
To be clear. I really like this toner and I?m finishing up my first bottle now...but the sea monkey//pulp/gunk (flower petal matter) is super weird and hard to get used tO.

CALENDULA LINE IS AMAZING!
ashleysayhello from California, USA
Kiehl's was introduced to me back when I worked in retail. I started with the Calendula facewash but someone recommended the toner. I wasn't sure I was ready to pay such a high price for a toner but I did and have noooooo regrets. I always buy the large size. Amazing product. I have combo skin and mild acne and it helps whip my skin into shape all the time! Thank you Kiehls!
nikkiajets1 from undisclosed
I used all the Kiehl's toners. This is my favorite. I love the smell, texture and it's alcohol-free. It clams my skin every time I use.
Love this toner
Hello1234 from Las Vegas
I love this toner and have repurchase it many time. I ordered a rice and wheat shampoo with this toner this Black Friday and both came with a broken cap. I don?t know what happened during delivery, but I am not happy about this.
Use to Use
Lynn123 from Burlingame, CA, USA
I use to use this toner all the time and have for years. I also have used neutrogena. Although I really do like this toner, I have decided to stick with neutrogena. I get to frustrated with the waste of the kiehls toner when the particles get caught in the opening. When I squeeze harder to get the toner out, it always ends up squirting way more then needed until the particles become dislodged. Then repeat = more waste. This toner is to pricey to have the waste.

I have been using this for a year, love the scent and it's refreshing after use
hanyao from undisclosed
I like. It's very mild and more suitable for summer use.
swin1 from OK
My skin type is oily and this really helps control my oil production. The smell reminds me of honey, I really love it. This also doesn't leave a sticky residue which I've gotten from using other toners. I use it right after the calendula cleanser and this helps rehydrates my skin even more.
My search for a perfect toner is now complete. I'm so happy my friend introduced this line and product to me.
amazing for sensitive, combination, acne-prone skin!
samijara from Orange, CA, USA
I bought this in conjunction with the calendula cleanser and i guess you can say I AM OBSESSED with both of these products!!! I've been using both everyday, twice a day for the past month. I love applying this product with my hands and pressing it into my skin following the cleanser. It adds the perfect level of hydration and my skin feels so balanced after. BOTH OF THESE PRODUCTS WORKED SO WELL TO CLEAR MY SKIN SIGNIFICANTLY AND MAKE IS SO SO SO SMOOTH AND AMAZING. These are my first ever Kiehl's purchases ever and I AM HOOKED. Don't even think about buying this any longer, JUST DO IT! your skin will thank you (:
Works well, don't like slimy petals
Wink from Austin, TX
So overall, this product works really well, like the others in Calendula line. I have the face wash, and also the mask. When I use this toner I do notice a better quality and smoothness in my skin. However, my big gripe about this toner is the flower petals in the bottle. At the beginning of the bottle its not a problem as the petals mainly stay near the bottom. However, once you are about half way through, slimy petals begin coming out with the toner. I wish they had something in the packaging to help to strain the liquid so you didn't experience this. Also, I feel like the petals take up a pretty significant volume of the bottle that could be more toner for your money.
Ariaqu from Maryland US
I could sit here and wright about this product for a whole hour telling you have great it is, want my honest opinion? BUY IT NOW! shoot BUY 4 BOTTLES! This toner has saved my skin!
I went from dry skin! super gross break outs! and a texture that was rough to back to my 19 year old skin! my acne spot are going away as I use this toner and my skin has become smooth and soft. I have combination skin and this toner has evened out my skin tone and texture. I LOVE IT! truly thankful for this product, its made me feel beautiful again.
