Most Helpful Positive Review Life Changing!
I have oily skin but some parts are flaky as well and finding products for my face is really difficult especially as a teenager. My skin is sensitive and gets irritated easily. I found with this product my face would feel a slight burn when I first put it on however it was not a horrible pain and it lasts only a couple seconds. As my acne went away so did that pain when I put it on. My skin would also stay red and splotchy in some spots for about 15-20 minutes. To avoid any problems with that I would just put the toner on at night after I wash my face. What was great was that the toner helped get rid of a lot of the oil on my face without completely drying it out, however for the parts of my face that are already dry and flaky on their own I found that they looked bad. Luckily this was not a huge problem because with a little lotion my skin was perfect. The smell of the product is not beautiful but it isn't nasty. It almost smells like rubbing alcohol. My skin feels so soft and looks brighter. I have had severe cases of acne since I was 12. I have tried every brand, every price, every medicine, and I've been to just about every doctor. I personally feel that spending money of laser surgeries for my skin is a waste of money because I want to feel happy with the skin I have. I shouldn't have to pay thousands of dollars to feel comfortable right? So when I saw this product I didn't have a positive attitude, I figured it would fail like everything else but not only has it cleared my skin but all of my scars have started to go away. At first a few scars faded away after a couple days (just small barely there scars) and after about a month of putting this on all over my face once a night I have found that my scars and dark spots are getting brighter. My boyfriend has started to notice that my cheeks look brighter than usual as well as my family. This product really does work and I am so happy that I finally found something great for my skin.
Most Helpful Critical Review Ok product
I bought this product after my baby was born. I don't have really bad acne and I have normal skin not oily but not dry. A couple days before my period I've been breaking out more than usual. I'll get small red bumps and maybe two or three pimples. I used it twice a day on the pimples and bumps like the instructions said. It did work with reducing the redness and the small bumps. I applied it at night and I noticed a difference in the morning. I was really excited but after about four days of use it really dried out my skin! I stopped using it since my pimples and bumps went away. My skin was so dry that my moisturizer burned. I will keep using it but only when I break out and only once a day until they go away! I think it's a pretty good product you just have to be careful because it will really dry out your skin. I think for people with oily skin it might not be so harsh on the skin.
Reviewed by 432 customers It's ok but I would not repurchase

I just finished the whole bottle of this toner (which took about 3-4 months?) and I have some thoughts.
- it has quite a strong scent. It took about a week to get used to it.
- it did not irritate my skin, but if I did make my skin feel tight until I applied my moisturizer.
- It didn't fade my acne scarring as well as I hoped.
- it did help lessen the redness and swelling of my breakouts (I don't know about "in under 8 hours" though..)
Overall, it was a ok toner. Would I purchase it again? No. I would want to see what else is out there.
Definitely, cleans thoroughly.

Twice a day!
Nice and refreshing
Tan from IL
i use this toner every morning right after i wash my face. usually i find toners for acne are super harsh and drying, but this one isn't! it doesn't make my skin feel tight, it just leaves my skin feeling refreshed and extra clean. it also has a nice cooling feel after you apply it. i have acne and suffer from acne scarring (don't pop your pimples!) and i noticed such a huge difference within the first few days. my scars look more faded and my acne looks less red and irritated. i also have those little bumps on my skin and it helps with that too!
if you have acne, acne scarring, and oily/ combo skin i'd recommend
Only use if you WANT breakouts
Anam from Texas
I was in the market for a new toner. I usually have great luck with Neutrogena products so I decided to use this because I was really interested in the fading dark marks part. Unfortunately after a week of using this, I broke out all over. It left me with more acne scars than when I started using this product. Like others have said, the smell is super strong too.

I bought this product three days ago and it burns my face after I apply it for a while but reduces the acne on my face.My face is also oily so it makes my face look extra oily after applying.I really hope it works and helps my skin

This product has worked wonders my Acne marks! After the first day of use I started seeing a difference.
Most effective toner I have used! Instant results!
Daniiii from San Diego, CA
Honestly, this toner is amazing because I have break-outs that occur often. When I put this on with a cotton ball after washing my face and taking my makeup off and go to bed, my break-outs are always majorly reduced and for the smaller acne they're gone 100%. It's amazing, if you want instant results this is the toner you need! I have oily/ combo skin, so if you have dry skin I suggest you moisturize well with this toner because it does dry the skin out if you apply it everywhere. Overall, I recommend to all my friends!

Works like it's supposed to; it helps clear out acne and reduces blemishes.

I feel like it helps with pimples but not as much with scars
cali from missouri
I bought this about a week ago and when I used it my face broke out in hives. I use the acne eliminating spot gel so I didn't expect it to do this. Just a little disappointed that I couldn't use it and am interested in finding out what may have cause it to do this.
Does the job but irritates/dries
Jill from Eastlake
The alchohol component is strong and makes
the skin feel dry and at times burns. It feels refreshing tho and takes off makeup not to use around eyes will burn eyes. Don't recommend
Works like 75% of the time
anonymous from Keller texas
Works well most of the time but drys out skin. Sometimes I feel like it doesn't even clear it but other times it does.
My skin is irritated
Zani26 from Bloemfontein
I bought this product a little over two weeks ago, after toning my face and neck itches. I seem to be breaking out some more
Love this !
Jacna from Dmv
I really love this toner. I started seeing a difference in my skin like about 2 weeks in. I saw that my skin was clearing up and my oils were at bay. I got a lot of compliments on my skin about how much it was glowing and I truly believe it was because of this !
So the pros about this product is that it has salicylic acid and glycolic acid which is a great aha and bha for this skin and gently remove dead skin. I did use it twice a day but I started seeing my results quick so I was able to use it once a day.
Only con I can see about this product is the alcohol in this ! I know some alcohols are safe for your skin but the alcohol in this product apparently can have bad affect later down the road. That's why I gave this product 4 stars. Other than that really great product for the price !
works if you stick to the routine
Todo from Chicago, IL
it was actually really good, It took a little bit of time for it to start working
kzzn from undisclosed
This is my first time using this product. It cleans my face well and helps with breakouts.
Maddy from Oregon
I truly think this toner is amazing! At first it is pretty drying so I recommend having a nice moisturizer close by. I added the toner to my skin care routine slowly until I was able to use it twice a day with no issues. It does a great job controlling my oily skin! After every use my skin feel fresh and clean. I will most definitely be buying again!
Using for about 5-6 years
KrysC from Stockton
STAPLE. It has faded my acne scars SO much. I had hormonal acne BAD! It subsided significantly post-partum but I still get PMS acne. This as a morning routine followed by a good moisturizer has faded my scars away and fades new acne that comes.
I love this
Sophia from Clive, Iowa
This has cleared up my skin and quickly faded my acne scars in literally less than a week. I highly recommend.
Dallas M from undisclosed
Can be very strong/ over drying if used twice daily, as recommended. But your skin should get used to the strength and eventually adapt.
Good but strong scent
Billie M from undisclosed
This toner has definitely helped me to control my breakouts, I just wish it didn't have as strong of a scent.
PrincessM from Wilm, DE
Very happy, I see improvement already. My sister and I are both using it and we like it.

Helped clear up my acne and acne scars.
:) from MA
I'm a high school girl and have had mild acne on my back and shoulders for a couple years, coming and going periodically. It seemed to be mostly the result of sweaty sportsbras and not being able to shower right after practices/workouts, and while it wasn't too bad, it was enough to make me self-conscious when wearing bathing suits and tanks. This was the first acne product I've used to try to get rid of it, and I'm so glad I did. I saw a difference after the first day of using this product, which I apply daily after showering with Neutrogena's Body Clear Body Scrub. Redness and pimple heads disappeared, tone evened, skin looked clearer. I have been using this for a couple of weeks now and although there are still some hints of acne, it's much less noticeable than before.
Some more pros:
- This product DOES NOT BLEACH/DISCOLOR FABRIC!! This was a huge plus for me because I'm tired of using products that stain my clothes, bedsheets, and towels.
- Super easy to apply (I use a cotton pad) and dries quickly.
- For a pretty small bottle (and small price), I've gotten so many uses out of it. I've been using it every night for at least 3-4 weeks and it's only about half way gone (and that's after applying it fairly liberally).
- I will say that the first few days my back was really itchy, probably because my skin was not used to the chemicals and I do have sensitive skin. This stopped after a couple of uses and overall the product was definitely worth the initial itchiness.
I definitely recommend this product to anyone who is struggling w acne. Overnight (I'm not kidding - I'd have flare ups one night, I'd apply, and the next morning they'd be gone), this product will make your skin more even and clear! I've never written a review before but I really believe this product will help you! I'm no doctor but I'd also recommend drinking LOTS of water and thinking about what you're eating to clear up that acne! I'm so so glad I bought this product. Hope this helps!!
