Toner is often given a bad rap, but a number of them, like this gentle, alcohol-free formula defy the stereotype. There’s no need to brace yourself before applying this antibacterial toner from Michael Todd, which rids skin of oil, sweat, and impurities without causing dryness or irritation. In fact, thanks to its soothing lavender and birchwood scent and gentle ingredients, using this toner couldn’t be a more relaxing experience.

terrible toner
Purchased

Both my mom and I purchased this toner and we both hated it. My skin is sensitive and I have a very clear complexion with the occasional breakout and hers is normal and aging. When I first tried this toner it stung my face so bad and then got very tingly and it made it red. After the first week of trying this my fave began to breakout terribly! I formed more blackheads on my chin than I've ever had and my face got very bumpy. My mom had the exact same problem. Not sure what's in this toner that's supposed to be 'anti blemish' but clearly it did the opposite for both of us. I bought this toner because it has such great reviews so I'm not sure what's so good about this stuff? After 2 weeks of using it I stopped and my face has now began to get back to its normal pimple free self. Not a good toner for me!

I Love You Michael Todd!
Purchased

I have two Michael Todd toners. They're both great, but this one is my favorite. The other one is harsher, and my sixteen year old daughter with acne/oily skin loves it. This algae toner fits my aging normal (well, it's not oily or dry) skin much better. Both the Michael Todd toners are the best I've ever used, but this one seems to extra soothe. It just makes my skin feel so nice and prepped for serum and moisturizer.

This is the one!

I was drawn to this proscribe cause of the natural ingredients and algae, etc. I put it on after I wash my face and still managed to get dirt off my face using this. And like any toner, it deep cleans and can feel tingly on your skin, but that's to be expected- and it's certainly not painful or harmful. I love this stuff. It doesn't dry out my skin. It wipes out breakouts. And it leaves my complexion looking so fresh and clear. I love it. It's going to be a new go-to toner!

Smelled ok. Don't really use toner and not sure quite what to do with it. Nice to try

Too Drying For Me
Sampled

I actually really liked this the first few times I used it - mostly on sweaty but clean skin after running around doing errands on the weekend. However, I have really dry skin and after getting out of the shower this literally sucked the moisture out of my face. Seems great for those with oily complexions but not for my desert face.

Didn't notice even the slightest change on my face. Still not completely sold on what this is supposed to do.
