Most Helpful Positive Review Pleasantly suprised.
For anyone who didn't know, the main purpose of a toner is to not only refresh your skin right after cleansing but most importantly, prepare your skin for your post cleansing products like seeums, treatments and moisturizers. While most can argue whether toners are needed in a skincare routine, i find that having a good toner on hand for when my skin is a little congested works wonders but I do not use a toner daily.
I was super excited but also skeptical about trying this toner/serum from Bliss. After using it for nearly two weeks, I have some thoughts: the packaging doesn't work as intended. I like the idea of the press down pad to dispense the product, however, if you're using a cotton ball or pad, the product doesn't absorb into it and just leaks out, causing it to leak under the push pad itself. To negate this, i press the pad down using a finger and let the product come out without a barrier and then take my cotton round and to "scoop" up the product, then apply. The formula is a gel-like consistency versus a liquid. I actually really like this. It definitely feels more refreshing on my skin and allows me to discern how much product I'm using a lot better versus a liquid formula. I also like that it is a 2 in 1 product. Traditionally after toning, you would apply a serum so this product essentially is two steps in one. That is something i can really get behind, especially if you're like me and have quite a few steps in your routine. Performance: I'll start by saying i have dry skin and after applying this, I expected my skin to feel super hydrated given the serum addition and the formula consistency but this dries down rather quickly, leaving my skin prepped but not exactly hydrated. While I appreciate that there is not tightness usually associated with toners, I was definitely assuming there'd be more hydration from the serum, so i would definitely reccomend a moisturizer as your last step if you do not currently do so.
Overall, I'm pleasantly suprosed with this product. It is effective at removing any left over makeup or dirt after cleansing, definitely hits the mark on refreshing my skin and really helps my skin drink up the post-toner products. I saw noticeable differences on days my skin was congested. Around my chin area is where I have the most issues and this toner seems to work just as good, if not better than my current toner at helping my other products do their job. Keep in mind, a lot of your skincare products need time to "work" before moving onto your next step. I find this dries down quite quickly and im ready for my next step within a minute or two making this a time saver as well.
Most Helpful Critical Review Great product but...
First of all, let me start of by saying how happy and excited i was when i received bliss clear genius clarifying toner+serum for free from Influenster to try. The packaging is bomb, the application is however a little different but I didnt have problem with that. When I read the ingredients, the 2nd ingredient is witch hazel which btw I dont have very good experience with. I tried witch hazel in the past and I caused me breakout and ended up returning it. Even though this product has witch hazel, the other ingredients niacinamide, salicylic acid those ingredients are my fav and my skin didnt have any issues with. So I tried the product every night and just used moisturizer afterwards to see the actual results. The next morning I noticed 2 new pimples. I wanted to give it a fair chance so still i used it next day hoping I wont have further breakouts. Unfortunately the next morning i woke up with 2 more new pimples. I wanted to try it for full 14 days but i had to stop after 5th day since i kept getting new pimples every morning using this product . I took a before and after picture to show the results but I doubt you can see all the pimples in the photo. I really wanted to love this product but unlucky me whose skin isnt suitable for witch hazel, couldnt really get any benefits from this. This product is definitely good and effective for people whose skin is fine with witch hazel but its just something that doesnt work for me. I would recommend it to those who dont have any issues with witch hazel and surely they will get all the benefits this product claims to provide. Thank you Influenster for letting me try out this new product #ClearGenius #ThisIsBliss #contest #complimentary #influenster @bliss @influenster

I'm not really sure about this product for me. When I put it on, i feel a slight burning sensation but I have pretty sensitive skin so, that didn't surprise me. Other than that I haven't really noticed a difference. In fact it seemed to maybe make me break out a bit more. I haven't been as consistent with it but I wouldn't say it's a bad product

This product is really nice. I love the smell of it and the texture of it. The consistency is also really nice and makes your face feel very clean.

I really like this toner, i've been using the witch hazel one for a while but I will use this from now on.

I actually saw a difference in my acne scars with this product! It made them fade away and gave me a more even skin tone! I loved it! Definitely recommend
I don't dislike this
tayhoffman_ from undisclosed
I don't dislike this product but I also don't think there's anything that special about it. I like to use it after a night out as a "2-in-1" skincare routine so I don't fall asleep in my makeup & feel clean. The pump is a little weird too and a lot of product gets underneath it
Bliss Clear Genius Toner + Serum
fruty1109 from undisclosed
I've been using this toner for about a month and a half, one of the changes that I notice on my face is less visible pores. Before bed after I wash my face I apply this toner + serum and my face feels refreshed and soft. This toner doesn't have any fragrance which is good for sensitive skin. I love it!

when i tell you this toner CHANGED MY LIFE... i'm not exaggerating, after just a couple of weeks using this after i wash my face, my skin has barely had any new breakouts and my scars are starting to fade!! highly recommend for anyone who wants softer skin :)

I love this serum. I use it morning and night now and it always makes my face feel clean and smooth. I will be buying this again. The pump top makes it so easy to get the product out. Love!!

I was never one to use toners till recently and I genuinely like this one. I received it in a voxbox not that long ago a and was kind of skeptical but I ended up really loving it and getting my use out of it

Love this product! I have always struggled with acne and have never found a product that consistently keeps my skin clear. I use it in the morning and at night and my acne has already gone down and my scars are fading. Love it!

The only toner sensitive on my skin
Nell from SA Tx
I have dry skin and this has been by far the best toner I have used. It leaves my skin feeling clean without completely drying it out. It's also a great size for the price.

Beats having to actually wet your face when the weather is cold. I prefer this over face washes now and also to clean away makeup for the night! Super useful, compact for on the go, and mess free literally. I now bought two more to gift to family.

A little different
kirstil from undisclosed
I got this free to try from influenster. I love a good toner and this is a good toner. But, it doesn't come out of the pump very well. Don't get me wrong once you get enough on your facial pad, cotton ball, or cloth it feels great on your skin. It grabs all sorts of build up on your skin. I just don't like the way it comes out of the pump.

I am generally a bit skeptical of two in one products but this really exceeded my expectations. There is a lot of room to add this into your routine and highly recommend if you want to kill two birds for one stone
I love the way

I love the way this product is packaged. I however had a drying effect after using this, so it won't be something I add to my skincare daily routine.￼
Brittany from Alabama
I really like this product because it isn't drying or harsh on my skin like other toners. I do wish the bottle was designed differently because the product is thick so when you press a cotton pad down on to the nozzle thing it doesn't soak up to well. It's no big deal tho, I just press the nozzle head down and scoop the product up with my cotton pad. It dries on nicely & isn't sticky.
