Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.I really struggle finding a toner that doesn’t dry out or irritate my skin as I have really sensitive skin so can’t use products with any fragrances, (drying) alcohols, etc. but this is PERFECT. My skin feels so nourished and looked after when I pat this on after cleansing and is a brilliant base to put other products on top of. Have finally found my perfect toner and will continue to buy from Paula’s Choice on top of all the other products I love from here as well - an incredible brand :) <3I like this product. My skin is dry and after this toner left very soft:)I use this every day after cleansing without cotton wool, straight onto face. It is calming and desensitises my skin. I absolutely love this toner.I love PC products and I usually get the Skin Balancing Toner (which is very good), but during the winter months & when I use AHAs & retinol I find it a bit irritating. I so wanted to like the Calm Redness Relief Toner, but unfortunately within seconds of applying it it made my skin irritated (obviously more red and itchy). The irritation would subside after 5-10 minutes, but this is a product which is supposed to have the opposite effect! (same goes for the Normal to Oily Skin version)
