Most Helpful Positive Review Love this stuff!!
This stuff is AMAZING! I'm one of those people who didn't even think about toner because I never saw the point in it. I have acne prone, dry skin and before I started using this I was using 2.5% benzoyl peroxide which did wonders for my skin! Well I decided to skip my benzoyl peroxide one night (used toner in the morning and peroxide at night) and I expected my skin to be covered in pimples the next morning, but my skin was so clear. So I started skipping it more and more and only using the toner along with my cleaner, hylauranic acid, and moisturizer and my skin is still clear! I never knew anything else would work fr my skin, but I'm glad this does. Plus it smells great and keeps my skin looking glowy.
Most Helpful Critical Review OUCH!!!
First of all, I love Mario Badescu products! They are very reasonably priced and work as well as philosophy or dermalogica without the hefty price tag. This toner, however, burned my skin. I used it for about 2 weeks thinking that maybe I just needed to give it some time. The skin around my nose actually became hard, flaky and red. It looked and felt like a terrible sunburn. Eventually that look spread around more areas of my face. The glycolic acid in this toner is too potent!!! I do not have particularly sensitive skin, so this surprised me. My face was so painful and continued to burn for hours after use. After I quit using it, my skin returned to normal. I use the Alpha-Grapefruit cleansing lotion now and I absolutely LOVE it!!!

HORRIBLE BRAND DO NOT BUY ANY OF THEIR STUFF!!
Good performance, lasts a long time!
AndyO from Boston
Obviously if you are not a toner person then this is not the product for you. I give it 4 stars because this has ingredients that some people may find issue with such as parabens. I work in the chemical industry so if I'm getting cancer it's not going to be from my skincare. Besides that, it's the bottle lasts a long time and the toner always picks up any remaining dirt and oils that are on my face whenever I try using a lower quality cleanser to save money.
I would NOT buy this again
Lindsey from Fort Lauderdale
I never use toner because I have very dry skin but I wanted to try to add something into my skin care routine so I decided to try this one since I've loved all the mario badescu products I have used in the past. I thought the ingredients would not irritate my skin because of the aloe and other ingredients in it that i have used before. After a few days of using this, my skin became extremely dry and flaky and would burn so bad every time I washed it or put other product on. My skin is still recovering right now, after trying to just intensely moisturize i eventually had to turn to cortisone ointment and benadryl to help the burning and itching sensation, which has seemed to help turn my skin back to normal. I don't normally have sensitive skin but if you do I would not recommend trying this!!!
Worst product ever..
Faye from Ac
I have clear n clean skin but a little bit dull. I bought this toner for brighting my skin, it gave me worst ache on my face that never happened before. Had big red pus pimples on all over my face. And now throw it out.
Good from Altoona PA
I use this toner every other night or so on spots where i have acne or oiliness and it's awesome. It's strong so I don't use it all the time or everywhere but it's worth having
2nd Time Around...
MochaFrost from Warrington PA
Used this toner previously with less than favorable results. Face broke out horribly...from overuse. Definitely have to follow the directions to get the best results. The dark spots on my face a clearing up nicely, my skin is smooth and pores aren't clogged. I have combination skin that is part oily and part dry. I use this at night after washing my face at bedtime. So glad I gave this another chance!
Thought It Would Be Good
P from Ohio
I normally use the Clean & Clear Oil-Free Deep Cleaning Astringent toner but i want to try something different so I gave this a shot. Plus I was wanting to improve my skincare. I was excited when it arrived and started using it right away. I have notice my skin is breaking out WAY more than it used to in a few days/weeks. It made my eyes/bags area extremely sensitive,my nose is starting to break out way more. I recommend the Clean & Clear one because it actually does something and you would feel it cleaning your skin. (It may burn a little but all the mean is the product is take the rest of the dirt that's deep in your pores and skin.)
Must Have Product
Nik from California
I've used this toner for morning/night for several months and have seen tremendous improvement is the texture of my skin. Especially for the price, this is a must have product!
Not for me
Not for me from Charleston, SC
I wanted to try since it was highly recommended but only after 3 days of using my skin started to dry dramatically. Looks like my skin is about to peel off! I did feel my face a lot cleaner but unfortunately it just wasn't for me.

This is a fantastic product and I recommend to all my friends!

Jessy from Tennessee
I just started using this toner and my skin has been less irritated nor red. Also has helped with my dryness and large pores
Becca from Baton Rouge
I just started using this toner and it's working better than any other one I've ever used. Has a nice smell and doesn't tingle like other toners!
Lissa from KCMO
I love Mario Badescu products and this one is no different. I can feel it do its work immediately after putting it on my skin. I usually let it absorb for a couple minutes before applying moisturizer or serum and it works and feels wonderful. I love my skincare regimen and it would not be the same without this toner.
Montse from Shelton, CT
This toner is amazing on my skin. I have combinations. This does not dry out my skin, its getting rid of those small bumps. I will defend buy it again
This stuff is awesome
Dea from Philly
So since we've been home on quarantine I've had more time to pay attention to my skin and I've been following the directions on this product and using it twice a day after washing my face. And my skin looks great!! I got my glow back!! I'm 41 and my face had looked a little dull but now my skin feels fresh and I got my glow back!! Will certainly get more as soon as they have it in.
Didn't work for me
Nope from Birmingham, Al
This toner is a big no for my face. So I wanted to add a toner to my routine since I didn't have one and decided to go for this based on the reviews. Well right after I washed and cleaned my face, I went in with the toner and my face immediately started tingling then it turned red and it started to burn. I quickly washed it off. I know it wasn't my cleanser cause I've been using it for months. The only new step added to my routine was this toner. I did patch tested it on my forearm and nothing happened. Read the ingredients and it has alcohol and it's also heavily fragranced which is another big no no for the face.

This product makes my skin feel fresh and clean
Great mild toner
Kristen B from New Hampshire
For context, I'm in my early thirties, I have combination skin, and I'm prone to random zits during "that time". I was looking for a toner to help even my tone and texture, something to use after or between face washing. My skin can get dry with particular products, but I also need to ensure I'm keeping the oil at bay. This works great, it's not harsh, and my skin has been very smooth and even since using over the last couple of weeks.
I love this toner!
Destiny from Florida
I love how soft this makes my skin feel. I use it after washing my face and before bed.
