Most Helpful Positive Review worth every cent, I love it!
This is 100% a new staple for my skincare routine. I am 27 years old and struggle with large pores and an oily T-zone. Since using this product I have been able to tell a HUGE difference in the way my skin looks and feels. My pores are minimized and my skin feels rejuvenated - even in the winter months. The product is easy to put on (I recommend with a cotton ball!) and dries quickly, doesn't sting or burn and does not require much to make a difference. I use it twice a day, after I wash my face and before a moisturizer.
There is a method to putting toner on correctly, starting in the center of your face and sweeping outward, towards your hair line on each side of your face. Apply on forehead, nose and cheeks, and chin.
Most Helpful Critical Review I would buy this product again, maybe for the summer.
I use this after the face wash in the am and pm. I like that it gets rid of all the dirt and oils my skin comes in contact with through out the day. But not good for the winter weather. Skin gets too dry with this product. Should be good for the summer though.

Even in my 30s, I have issues with outbreaks and this toner does help. What I find it helps me for most, however, is that I no longer get this oily film on my forehead as the day goes on. I do not have the issues with alcohol as some people seem to. In my opinion, it's not a zero sum thing. I always follow with a moisturizer. Maybe it's just me being a dumb guy, but it just makes sense to me that I should do that!
My *only* complaint is that I recall many years ago (like at least 10-15 years now) I used to use a toner Origins had that had this sediment in it. I think it was White China Clay? You had to shake the bottle first to use it, and it was the greatest.
I have asked about that product in person before, and it seems that it's been discontinued for so long no one remembers it. :(
Has Alcohol in It.
Sunshine_beauty17 from Virginia
This product has Alcohol denat as the 2nd ingredient in the ingredients list listed on the back of the bottle. Anything with alcohol in it is not good for anyones skin. I hadn't realized that it had alcohol in it until I felt my skin drying up after a weeks use. I'm returning the bottle.
Kay from Chicago
Overall it is ok, and I might purchase it again, but I'm still on the market for a toner that minimizes pores.
I purchased a hand-full of pore minimizing toners at the same time, and this is the one I kept. Not because of its ability to make my pores less visible, but it did help with oiliness throughout the day. However, I am about 3/4 of the way through my first bottle and I no longer see the same results I did at the beginning. I have less control over oily ness than I did when I first started using this product a couple of months ago. My soap and moisturizer are from Clinique and also both for oily skin, which has worked very well.
I will try and find something that really helps Minimize pores versus purchase this product again.

Strong alcohol smell.. never seen a toner bottle with such a big mouth opening so you waste more than actually using it. Good , I will get rid of it faster and will get something better! Not worth the money!!!!
Payton from Panama City, FL
This is my favorite toner. My face is always balanced and it has gotten clearer and brighter since I started using it. Doesn't leave your face oily. Highly recommend
Adam E. R. from Brick, NJ
I got this toner several days ago. My skin is on the oily side, so this toner works great for me. it does what toner is supposed to do. I love the smell. It reminds me of a Mohitto, just can't put it on ice a drink. lol.
Best toner for oily skin
Mkayl19 from Gilbert, AZ
I was searching for a new toner and came across the zero oil toner. Best product for oily skin for sure! I've used United State in the past but this product is awesome! I've been using zero oil toner every night and morning for the past few days and my skin has been less oily during the day. It feels refreshing and doesn't sting like some toners do.
Shelbey from Sherman, TX
This is my daily toner that I use day and night. I have acne prone oily/combo skin, so I was excited to find a toner with SA. I noticed a dramatic improvement to my skin immediately. It controls my oil amazingly, leaves my skin matte, and prevents and treats any break outs. The rest of my skincare routine is very hydrating, so I haven't experienced any dryness at all.
Lizzo from Pennsylvania
This toner has become essential to my night time regimen! I can't clean my face and then moisturize without using this toner first. The scent is woody and natural. The product itself leaves my skin feeling cleaner and fresh without stripping my natural oils completely. Specifically in my pores around my nose and my cheeks, I feel my skin has gotten tighter. There hasn't been a product Origins that I've disliked yet!
I am certaimly buying this again and again
MerV from Austin, tx
I usually put it on morning and night...I love it
Made both my pores and my oily skin WORSE
Esther from Palm beach, FL
I've always had huge pores on my nose and on the sides of my nose. And my whole face is extremely oily. I've read that salicylic acid helps clean out pores. So when I saw this product it's a win win. I remember buying this before and returning it but I couldn't remember why. But now I know. This things makes my oily skin worse and makes my pores worse. After the first use of this my skin started pumping out even more oil! I wore makeup yesterday and normally I wouldn't get oily because I set my face so good but within an hour my face was greasy. Even after washing of the make up and sitting in the house with no make my skin was pumping out oil in a way I've never seen it do. And more pores looked worse. The ones on my nose seemed even more prominent and the ones on my cheeks that are usually not to noticeable looked angry. I'm promptly returning this. My guess is the alcohol in this toner is a no go.
Kate from Columbia SC
I had used other toners in the past but nothing compares to this one.
I have been using Origins Checks & Balances face wash for a few weeks now and it wasn't clearing up my skin as much as I hoped so I read about this and decided to take the leap of faith. I am so happy for that, I had small but noticeable acne on my jaw lines and within a few days it's basically all cleared up. I don't think I will ever stop using this product.
Perfect Product for Oil Control
amyelise from Falls Church, VA
This toner is one of my favorite things in my skincare routine. This toner is ridiculously necessary for me AM and PM during summer. I only use the Zero Oil toner once per day in the cooler seasons as my skin does get a bit dry. I have sensitive skin and Origins is now the only brand I use for skincare. After trying many products (which is hard as I try to stay eco-friendly and crulety-free is a must and companies get bought out so they no longer fit the bill), this is the only toner that truly helps with oil control, especially as I live in a humid environment. After about a week, I'm a true believe this toner also helps protect my pores from sucking up makeup or additional dirt/debris/pollution from the day. I wish I had taken before/after pictures since I started using Origins.
Pretty Good Toner
Hmarsh from Raleigh, NC
This is a pretty good toner. Doesnt dry out my combo skin. I havent really noticed it helping when I get a breakout, but is helping cut oiliness. Not sure if this is the toner for me, but its overall not bad.
A from .
I am normally very oily. But this dried my skin so much, to the point where i got dry patches. My skin is incredibly red and irritated:/
Dr. Boots from Boston, MA
I have a condition in which my oil glands over-produce and nothing helps, so I never expect miracles. This would probably work really well on someone who has average or slightly above average oiliness. I have been using this before bedtime for two weeks and will say that my pores look a little tighter when I wake up. The smell is very refreshing and I will probably continue to use this product.

I'm not sure if I notice anything changes yet...
My all time favorite toner!!
Elle8 from Washington,DC
I have been using this toner for about 2 months now, and it has done wonders for my skin!! I have oily and acne prone skin and after using it for one night, I could already see a difference in my skin. My acne has gotten a lot better since I started using this product. I highly recommend getting this product if you have oily and acne prone skin!!
Kanye from Dallas, TX
Not for dry skin, always make sure your toners don't have alcohol because it's harsh and dries your skin out. Use at one risk
Oil be gone
Stephanie from Cincinnati
I have extremely oily skin that's somewhat sensitive. I got this along with the ginzing scrub and moisturizer. The smell is not super great it smells like astringent forsure but it's cooling to the face and it cut down on my oil A LOT. Dare I say i almost don't have oily skin anymore. It doesn't dry my skin out and it helps with acne. I'm sold forever
cleansing but not drying
amand3219 from STL
gets all the dirt and grime out of your skin! doesn't leave your skin dry but it feels nice and firm! also does not burn like some toners tend to
Addie MUA from Lafayette, IN
I have very oily, acne prone skin and this product kept my skin looking balanced and healthy looking. My acne has subsided and my skin is far less oily - but not dried out or dehydrated! Plus it smells (and feels) minty. Love!!!
Toners are a must!
esthercp from boston, ma
I never took toners seriously, and haven't used them for years. Until I discovered how toners are important in regulating the skin's PH. I researched and found this toner (which contains Salicylic Acid). Its been two weeks and it has transformed my skin! I haven't had anymore breakouts and my skin is beginning to even out. Its my first product from Origins and it has won my heart. I love this toner and I highly recommend it!
My mface will not stop itching
ShanaT from Boston,Ma
I just came here to see if others have had a bad reaction to this toner. I have never had any issues with any products purchased from Origins until tonight. This was my first time using this toner. My skin has been itching and burning for the last few hours. At first I did not make the link between this skin reaction and this product until a few minutes ago. I have tried Aloe Vera and Vaseline to try to lessen the irritation. I hope to be able to sleep this off. I noticed another reviewer has described experincing an allergic reaction and now I am scared that I have the same fate
Will buy again!!!
Mizzprettyhuston from Ohio
I love this product...I also bought the Zero oil cleanser too...I use them both in the morning and at night. I noticed this toner helps my makeup not turn into an oil slick after four hours....when I didn't use this toner before applying my makeup I noticed I got oily sooner. I will buy this agin!!! Thank you Origins!!!! Oh and it smells like a nice spa like minty scent not like toothpaste.
