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.

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.

Michael Todd Blue Green Algae Toner

You almost lost me on the word algae in the name, but I must say I really liked this product. Smell was actually just fine and left my face feeling throughly cleansed and devoid of any oil, dirt or make up residue.

Great!!

I absolutely love this stuff. The smell is unique but it works wonders on my combo skin. Living in such humid weather germs build up fast and this cleans wonderfully.

Cooling and refreshing, with a hint of tingle to let you know it's working!

Gentle Toner

No alcohol, so not as astringent as I am used to, but was very pleasant smelling and seemed to provide some soothing qualities to my oily, sensitive, blemish-prone skin. I used the sample for 6 days in a row (until it was gone) and felt that it was a nice addition to my current skincare regimen. Not sure if I would want to get this or revert to my usual alcohol-based toner, though. My skin is excessively oily, especially in the summer.

Not my Thing

I don't really use toner and I cant say I ever will, I just this product twice and decided to give to my roommate. Didn't make me want to keep using it.
