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

This saved my skin in less than ONE week. I recently relocated from the Southeast to the Southwest. They have completely opposite climates and I was developing texture skin and acne from the change in climate and wearing a mask.
I chose this product because of the ingredient list: all of the products listed on the bottle were listed very high on the ingredient list which tells me that there's a high concentration of them. Also I have sensitive, combo skin so I am very picky about what I put on my face.
Day 1: I was glowy, it soothed any textured skin, and shrunk any active acne.
Day 5: My skin in completely clear and it's lightened up my acne scars.
Bonus*** It also helped with my hormonal acne when my period came on. I never had a product actually reduce my hormonal acne because it's so stubborn, but it worked!
Saved my skin in two weeks

Since the start of wearing mask at work for 8 hrs I was getting worse and worse clogged pores/textured skin that was leading to larger breakouts, in two weeks time my clogged pores are about 75% gone and it's still improving each day, if you struggle with clogged pores do not hesitate, GET THIS! And in case your wondering I use any face wash really as long as it's not too drying but still cleans well and pair it with the bliss vit c moisturizer I just got too and together they do amazing
I usually never do this but...

This serum has significantly reduced my chin, cheek, and nose acne. Those pesky deep pimples have seemed to disappear in a WEEK! It's like magic. I really can't believe this serum has gotten rid of my white heads and black heads. My skin is glowing and is so smooth. I haven't had skin like this in years. If you're prone to face mask acne (like me) give this a try! It's worth every penny.
kaitlynng from undisclosed
Love that this toner isnt over drying. I cant 100% say if this product works long term because I just received this product two weeks ago but so far I am loving it! It hasnt made me break out or dried out my skin.
worth the hype
shirly from undisclosed
I reallly liked this product! Ive heard great reviews and this really lives up to expectations that I had. Its my first tome trying this and Ive been using this for the past 2 weeks and Ive seen a noticeable difference
rvntrbl from undisclosed
ive never really tried many toners or similar products before, so i dont have anything to compare it to, but this product seems pretty good so far.

amandab72 from undisclosed
This is great! I was a little surprised by the consistency; very thick. Did like the pump to get toner out. Love bliss brand.
angelafaab0 from undisclosed
Love this toner! Very light and feels great on my skin. Im already seeing some improvements around my chin and forehead. It also smells better than others I have tried. I would definitely recommend!
Good Toner Overall
danielleh5 from undisclosed
Ive been using this toner for a couple of weeks now and it seems to work pretty well. I like that it is more like a serum and doesnt feel as harsh as other toners. Although, it does contain witch hazel and Ive heard that this is not good for your skin over time.
I like this product but not my fav
laurenp98 from undisclosed
It works pretty well but I dont think it would be my go to product. It does work pretty well though and the texture is fun
I LOVE this stuff!!
briia4 from undisclosed
This stuff makes my face SO soft, doesn't make my face breakout and it helps make my pores look much smaller. I've been using this stuff every morning and night since I got it and I will definitley buy it again and continue using it!
jineeno28 from undisclosed
Im not a big toner fan. I dont believe toner really works so this product was ok. I like how it pumps out thats nice.
fat water dupe
alyciadanae from undisclosed
Ive really been enjoying this toner/serum combo. I like that theres a no-mess way of getting the product out of the container. The instructions say that you should use a cotton ball, but youll waste product applying it that way so i use my fingers and apply it to my face, neck and chest. It has very similar ingredients to the new Fenty Fat Water and is more accessible and cheaper. Definitely recommend!
viow from undisclosed
I've never used Fenty's Fat Water but I imagine the product be somewhat similar. I find many American toners to be less hydrating than Asian toners that focus more on hydration. Now this product has a blend of hydrating and also keeping the face moisturized.
Noticeably Clearer Skin
alexab0f5f from undisclosed
Wow! This product really impressed me. I started using it day and night as instructed and my skin is so smooth and clear! The pump is not great and causes a bit of the product to leak out, but that being the only fault makes this a pretty good buy.
amirachenelle from undisclosed
I love this toner serum. It feels so refreshing on the skin and very moisturizing. Doesnt make my skin dry either. The packaging is also very helpful and gives you just the right amount. I would definitely recommend.
apatterman from undisclosed
I didn't know what to expect with this product,but actually really liked it. it's thicker like a gel with little to no scent. it feels very hydrating and dries quickly with little to no tackiness. however I'm not quite sure where to use this in my routine as it's a toner and a serum.
love it so far
moniquesdume from undisclosed
i love how this toner has a gel like consistency but it isnt sticky, so it feels like a toner and serum in one. makes my face feel clean and fresh. and no scent very gentle.
natalie_nicole_meyer from undisclosed
I like that this product is a toner and serum all in one! It makes my skin routine faster but putting two steps into one. I also like the bottle and the fact that you can just pump the product onto a cotton pad.
deborah16 from undisclosed
this is wonderful!! im always skeptical about trying new face products but my face feels so refreshed and better!!
venelinaaa_ from undisclosed
I really like this toner/serum! It wasnt irritating at all. I noticed after a week of using it that I got more pimples but I think its because it was pulling everything from under my skin. It didnt dry out my skin at all and didnt cause any irritation. The formula is very lightweight and it doesnt feel sticky at all after application. I really enjoyed the pump, however, I wouldnt use a cotton round but my fingers instead. I like the way you have control over exactly how much product you want!
not bad but wouldn't repurchase
katiegf6c8 from undisclosed
I was hesitant to try this toner. I have dry and sensitive skin, it dried my skin out a little bit and burned slightly. Im going to pass this along to someone else.

lydiapierce13 from undisclosed
This product is amazing, I have been wanting to get a new toner vie with my dry/sensitive skin I get worries what will actually work, but this did everything I wanted it to and more! My skin was soft, hydrated and it is super easy to use with the pump at the top! I will be purchasing again
