I use this toner every morning and every evening. What I like about it the most is how cool my skin feels after I apply it. For you guys who haven't used toner before, you need to step up your game. Consider it an energizing treatment for your face. It literally evens out the color of you skin. So if you have red spots from acne or discoloration from the sun; this evens it out. Works great for helping you look your best.
I may not have been using this long enough to really give a fair and accurate review of the product, but after about a week of use, I'm not sure how much longer I'll be using it.
Don't get me wrong. The tonic, as far as I can tell, works and feels great after my daily shave, but I can't really get past the smell. Unlike the other products in the Facial Fuel line which smell great and leave your skin feeling invigorated, the Toner smells like a mixture of clay and a hint lemon (N.B. remember to shake before using). It also lacks, to a certain extent, that really invigorating feeling that you get from using the Scrub and Moisturizer (I actually use the Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser instead of the Facial Fuel Face Wash because it's not as thick and it feels a little more refreshing).
I think, most importantly, like one of the previous reviews stated, it doesn't strip the skin or dry the skin out like most of the other toners I've used. If you can overlook the smell until it dries, I think you'll love it, but I think I may just try the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Toner instead, next time, and see if I like that better.

This is a great daily, no-nonsense, all-round effective toner for men. And women. Anyone-- as long as one enjoys a vibrant facial awakening!

It's so good for me. It's not sticky and it doesn't smell too much.

Did not like the smell, as I thought of a delicate balm instead

Helps my face feel and look fresh. I recommend it to anyone who has oily skin

This is a great product for both men and women. I like that I can purchase Facial Fuel products for us to share. It reduces clutter and simplifies my life. We can't live without this tonic and the Energizing Scrub. (We also must have the 12.5% Vitamin C). Great regimen and we both love our skin.

Since I've been using this as part of my daily regimen I noticed it really helps to even out and clarify my complexion. Some older reviews complained about the scent but maybe it's been reformulated a little because I think it smells great. Very energizing. I have oily skin and I think this also does a great job of balancing it. Definitely worth the buy.

Started using this before applying moisturizer and I can see the effects after only a week. My skin is less greasy and glowing! My only criticism is that I dislike applying it onto a cotton ball because I feel like product is wasted. I wish it came in a spray bottle to mist my face and dab from there.

I'm a guy that has used cleanser and moisturizer consistently for years. I even did the occasional mud mask and eye cream. But for some reason I didn't think a toner was something I needed. Then I tried a sample...hello!
This is such a quick and easy step to add to your skincare routine. The smell is pleasant and it leaves your skin feeling fresh. After shaving with a razor, I wipe my face with a damp wash cloth to remove any remaining shaving cream. I then apply the toner with a cotton pad. It grabs any remaining bits of shaved stubble that are clinging on. It also seems to help stop the bleeding from the occasional shaving nick.
Since I started using this product I've noticed an improvement in my mild adult acne.

This is a good "after shave" for those that hate the sting of most products. It provides a solid seal of all the little cuts and bumps that may occur during shaving. Don't leave without it.

This product is a thin, clean liquid that you can dispense onto a cotton circle and spread over the skin. It's super light and refreshing, making your skin tingle. It has an effervescent and energizing effect, it's made with bamboo extract and leaves your face feeling invigorated.
I use this twice a day, right after cleansing. After applying the toner, I layer serum on and the toner actually helps evenly disperse the serum across my face for maximum coverage and absorption.

The Facial Fuel Energizing Tonic is a wonderful toner to provide an soothing secondary cleansing experience to your skin. The only thing I don't like about this product is the scent. I can't put my finger on it, but it just isn't too pleasant.
I've also noticed this leaves my skin feeling sticky. I personally wont be using this product for myself as I found that Kiehl's has some better ones for my skin type, but I suggest for you to try this product out to see if it works well with your skin and texture preferences.

I been using this product for a couple years. I think is a great tonic, skin looks energized right away and I've notice it has close pores with time.

Before purchasing this product, I never really used toner but after the first use I knew there was no turning back. This toner leaves my skin feeling invigorated and clean.

While my boyfriend hates the smell, I think it smells great. It's the best toner I've found yet, and I just splash it on with my hands. I use the entire Facial Fuel line, and in combination with the gel moisturizer and the SPF moisturizer, it works great.
Billybob from Greensboro, NC
I found this to be a geat facial energizer on really hot days when you sweat and simply do not want to apply a facial moisturizer or cream. I apply with a cotton pad and this seems to give the perfect feel and takes care of any facial dryness on those really hot days.

The odor from this product turned me off immediately. Followed by the complete lack of results.
I will never use this toner. Much better off with cucumber or astringent blue
Timothy from Long Island, NY
Applied this product as instructed. It gave my skin the color and feel of a very bad sunburn. I would not recommend this.
dirtbarbie from Los Angeles
My boyfriend had chronic blackheads, so after a year of this I finally convinced him to go with me to the Kiehl's store. He used a the rare earth cleanser, followed by this, followed by the facial fuel sunscreen with moisturizer. I LOVE the way he smells in this. He loves that it makes me want to kiss him. And that it closes his pores and helps minimize his blackheads. He says it "puts a spring in his step."

I purchased this toner at the recommendation of a Kiehl's employee. I was having a tough time recovering for the disappearance of the Herba Mate line, and disliked the more "light" toners. Let me tell you, this product is fantastic! It leaves your skin feeling clean and fresh! It has eliminated blackheads and lessened breakouts.
This product can also be used all over your body. I recently had a serious hip surgery where I was not allowed to shower for 2 weeks (ew!). I used this product, on little cotton swabs, all over my back and shoulders to keep me feeling clean and fresh. It was quite the life-saver!

I have tried many, many facial toners and this is one of the best. It doesn't strip the skin and dry it out like many other toners. While I wish that this product didn't contain alcohol, the pros outweigh the cons.
I use the entire Facial Fuel line, and this product works very well when used with all of them. I'm still not sure if this product helps to heal my skin faster after shaving, and I'm still experiencing some ingrown hair issues, but I will continue using this product for a while. It's a great daily toner for men!
