Rated 4.31 out of 5 stars
I have always had good skin, except for my chin! Every month I have a painful breakout on my chin. I have been to dermatologists and have tried everything! Now in my mid-twenties I thought the breakouts would have finally stopped and they hadn't. I wandered into Kiehls on a whim with a friend as I was passing by it in the mall and figured "Why not?". I spoke with the sales girl who was so sweet! She spent so much time with me and recommended this product. I am happy to say I have not had a single pimple on my chin for 6 months now! I use this product only on my chin, twice a day. My skin is not over dried and is perfectly clear. Kiehls is now my go-to place for skin care products.
I decided to try this out based on the reviews I had read. I have extremely oily skin and am prone to cystic pimples. It has definitely controlled the acne because I haven't really gotten any significant deep pimples since using this. It has a really good texture and cool feeling when applied. My skin instantly feels soft. However, it has been hit or miss with different moisturizers I use on top of it. Like other reviewers mentioned, it does ball up. It works fine with the Herbal Blue Moisturizer but when I've used it under the Ultra Oil free Gel Cream, it balls up. I also like to mix my BB cream with moisturizer but when I apply it after this toner, I really have to rub it in well in order for it to not be streaky. But Once it is all rubbed in, it looks fine. Using it with a regular moisturizer then powder foundation is fine. I will just use this at night until I run out and probably just use a different Kiehl's toner.

Love this for treating acne and oily Tzone! As a long time user, very disappointed that the larger 16.9oz bottle is being discontinued.

I was told that the 16oz size was discontinued. It's disgraceful that Kiehls forces it loyal clients into smaller, more expensive bottle sizes.

I have used this product for many years. I do not know why the large bottle was discontinued. There are a number of discontinued products that were excellent.

I love this toner and so was very disappointed in the company's decision to stop selling the larger sized bottle. I've always promoted Kiehls because of its customer focused service, but that decision was a true disappointment to someone who's used your products for over twenty years,

I've used this product for years and can't do my evening routine without it...even after washing my face, there is still more to remove with this on my skin pad...and my skin "tightens" and feels great!

ahramaru from Washington
Its really good for oily skin. Once applying helps for about 5 hours during day and 7~8 hrs during night time. But it also makes the skin really really dry. Must apply hydration after use.

I have oily skin and this is the first toner I have found that actually helps with keeping my face dry and not oily all day long. Love it!

Best product I've ever used for cleaning face and preventing ingrown hairs on face. I use it every night before bed.
Park from Dallas
Definitely helps to rid pimples like yesterday lol
David V from New Jersey
I've used this product for years. Great as an aftershave and body splash. Gets rid of the occasional pimple, too. Bottle cap was damaged when I received it, but not a game changer. I'll just swap it when my old bottle is empty. Will continue to purchase!
Suze from NJ
This smells good and makes your face feel really clean but it makes my eyes burn to much so I will not be purchasing again.

I had developed some unevenness in my skin tone and within a week the Blue Astringent went to work. After two weeks my skin tone has really evened out, and it glows. Great product if you need a fast regimen.

Great product, nice cooling feeling after a shave. Smells good.
BTong from Northern California
I've used this Blue Astringent since the 1980's for everything from blemishes, bites, cuts & scrapes… wouldn't be without it! A little goes a long way!

This product didn't really make a difference for my oily skin. I'll go back to my normal niacinamide serum
