I received Propolis Synergy Toner to try for free. I am not a big toner user so I was skeptical. I used the product faithfully for 3 weeks and now I wish I had taken a before photo. I feel that my face has a glow about it, and I swear some of my little lines have disappeared. I love the ingredients, and they way it makes my face feel after using. I washed my face with my regular product, then grabbed a cotton ball and went over my face with the Propolis Synergy Toner. I was surprised to see the dirt that was on the cotton ball. So I went over my face twice till it came out clean, and my face felt wonderful. It was refreshed, and light, and left my skin soft. So I began using the product every morning and every evening. After about a week and a 1/2 people starting asking me what was different about my face. They couldn't figure out what it was, but would compliment me on my glow. I also surfer from uneven pigment in my skin, or dark spots. They have seem to fade some of them away. I had people tell me they could not believe I was going to be 53, that they thought I was in my late 30s. Will definitely continue to use Propolis Synergy Toner as part of my skin regime. I have included a photo, this is me with no makeup on at all (a little sun burn).
I was excited to try this as I find it hard to find a toner that I liked. This toner has definitely a more thicker texture than water. It has a slightly more tackiness to it and a denser texture than most toners I've tried. I have combination skin so I tend to get dehydrated but on the oily side. This toner is probably better for people with more drier skin as I felt like the product was a bit too tacky for my skin and doesn't absorb fast enough. I feel like people who need more hydration would be able to try this, but for me, I wanted something that can absorb quicker, but at the same time doesn't feel like it was too much for my skin. I don't really notice much after using this for a couple of weeks, but I think I would try it again during the winter when my skin is a little more dry. I think for the spring and summer, it was a bit too heavy for what my skin needs. I would only use it at night for the extra hydration. Overall, I thought it was ok. I liked that it didn't have a scent so people who are sensitive skinned can try it out. I've tried applying it with a cotton pad and just my hands, and I would say that patting it in with my hands has helped it absorb slightly faster which I like. I also be careful to not use too much as it can be a bit too tacky for my combination skin. It does still leave a slight feel of a film after it dries, but it's not too too uncomfortable and I still moisturize after applying this, but I would use a lighter moisturizer.

I love all this cosRX, but this toner didn't quite do it for me. I noticed after using it for a couple weeks that my pores looked super congested and caused toms of tiny black heads.

Got this almost on a whim, since I've had poor luck with toners in the past and had stopped using them. I found other ones to be either too watery or too alcohol-y. But I LOVE this one! I'm over 60 and have dry skin, and this is the best thing to use right after my cleansing step. I follow up with a serum and a moisturizer, and my skin feels soooo good. I was hoping it had a faint honey scent, but it has no scent at all that I can tell. Would definitely repurchase, plus I want to try other things in Cosrx's Propolis line now.

Everyone hyped up this product so much in the reviews and I know everyone's skin is different but. This was the the effect as water. NOT hydrating. Very dissappointed.
Coco from Michigan, USA
By far the most beneficial product in my skincare routine. This toner completely changed the texture and tone of my skin. This stuff is soooooo hydrating I would bathe in it if I could. Its very cost effective as well, i use it twice daily except and it lasts forever.
Beth from Normal, IL
This is a great toner that feels sooooo good once it absorbs into the skin! I love how lightweight this is and it's perfect for all seasons. Unfortunately, it made my oily skin more oily and shiny during the day. I had to go to the bathroom to blot multiple times a day. I wouldn't recommend this for someone with oily skin.
Asia from honolulu
Per the title I wanted to try a new toner and it led me to this product. I was pretty skeptical at first because before using this product I was using Murad clarifying Toner. My skin is acne prone, sensitive, and oily skin. You could definitely tell my skin was getting use to this product but I would only break out small acne. I would say after 2 weeks my skin looked completely different. My acne scars for sure did lighten and acne was at a minimal but my skin looked very bright, in my opinion. AND the formula is super gentle and hydrating on my skin. My skin still breaks out here and there due to hormonal acne but it is not as intense as before!

jan from houston,tx
I got a sample of this and within two weeks i noticed my skin was feeling a lot smoother.
i did make the mistake of using too much the first time and it left my face feeling very sticky. I recommend using a few drops while your face is still damp.

i never write reviews but this is a priduxt i will continue to keep restocking as a part of my skincare routine. I've tried so many different toners amd this one without a doubt is my favorite because it leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated. I always feels like it gets off all the extra stuff i missed when cleansing !
KC from Port Charlotte, FL
I wasn't sure I was going to like this as the first few times I used it, I felt it was too heavy on my face. After a week, I actually enjoyed using it and it didn't cause acne or an rash. Makes my skin so soft.
Sophie from Winter garden
I began using this toner as a new part of my skin cycling routine (that includes exfoiliants like BHA and Retinol) and it has been so soothing on my skin! It makes my skin barrier feel hydrated, and my skin has visibly improved while using this. I have dehydrated oily skin, and this has become a new staple in my routine. Try it out!
Em from Virginia
I have rosacea and sensitive skin. Tried this toner a few times, months apart, and each time ended up with tons of superficial white heads the next day. Wouldn't soak into my skin and left a weird, sticky film that interfered with other products.

This toner is so hydrating. While using this toner my dark spot started to go away little by little. I highly recommend this product for acne/normal to dryish skin, it hydrated my skin and helps even out my skin tone which is a bonus. It's also really gentle for the skin.
Zoe from Denver, CO
I'm about to be on my fourth bottle of this stuff and it's just *chef's kiss*. I get so many compliments on how glowy my skin looks! I also have very oily skin, but this doesn't make me look shiny like some moisturizers do. Some advice i'd give us to use three layers in the morning and one at night and you'll see a difference! A lot of my dark spots/discoloration has also faded because of this. It's a godsend i love < 3333

I had this toner for a while and just purchased this one and it burns my skin. I thou it was my moisturizer which then I used without adding the toner first and nothing happened.
Lisa from MO
I really do not have anything bad to say about this toner, but it is also not spectacular. It is not worth returning... so I will use it up -- but I love their other AHA one, so I will stick with that one in the future.

25F with very sensitive skin. I bought this product on a whim and planned on giving it to my mom bc I didn't know anything about the product or brand. But after using it, my goodness. I LOVE this toner. I've tried Mario Badescu, YTP, WldKat, essentially a lot… This is the only one I FEEL and SEE a difference with I don't break out, some of the redness on my cheeks goes away, & I feel glowy.
I've had this product well over 8 months (I don't use religiously) but mostly every morning. You don't need a whole lot, glides over your face & makes your face feel like a baby's bum so soft.
I haven't used any of Cosrx's other products but kind of wanting to try now. Only thing is sometimes I like a spray for a toner but by no means would the application keep me from repurchasing.
Nancy from MA
This is the perfect first step for hydrating dry skin. I use it morning and night before skin serum and moisturizer. I love the way my skin does not have that tight feeling that most toners cause. Great product!
binda from kentucky
For background, my skin type is combo and prone to dehydration and hormonal acne. I love love love the way this product feels on my skin. It makes my skin feel so silky, soft, and plump with hydration. I bought it because of reviews saying it helps with acne due to its antibacterial/anti-inflammatory properties. Can't say I've noticed any improvement with that but that may have more to do with my type of acne being controlled by the moon and the tides. Still it's my favorite toner and will always have it on hand. A little goes a long way and you get such good value for the bottle size.
Mariam from Dar es salaam, Tanzania
I am not a serious toner lover. Being in a part of the world where it's usually humid than dry, my skin becomes a combo of oily and normal. So since I started breaking out, this toner has dried out my acne my skin feels much calmer than before.
Noël from Gillette, WY
i am obsessed with how this feels on my face. i hate sticky toners and this one isn't at all. makes my face glow and didn't break me out at all. i have zero complaints and will always repurchase
jace from new jersey
this is such a nice toner. it leaves my skin so soft and moisturized! the smell is something you have to get used to, but it doesnt linger. it is so good!
Tara from Oakland
Hydrating and soothing. I spend 5 hours a day in a very chlorinated pool swim instructing and this saves my skin after washing. My skin drinks it up. My skin no longer feels dry and dehydrated. No acne or irritation. I have sensitive, dry skin, and I have repurchased many times.

This is awesome. Hate toners, nothing bad to say here. Smells good, not harsh, pleasant way to transition from cleanser to the rest of your routine. Refreshing to use. Feels like a treat
Alex from Washington
This is awful! The reviews hooked me into trying this out, worst thing I could have done to me face!! It just plain burns instantly and am now swollen, red and dried out, especiallyby my eyes. Positive I am having a BAD allergic reaction. 24 hrs later, face is still burned
