Benefit Moisture Prep Toning Lotion

For maximum preparedness, devoted students turn to pre-SAT classes; devoted skin-care connoisseurs, on the other hand, turn to a premoisturizer. This toner is the perfect middle step between your face wash and face cream. Not only does it tone and clarify pores with aloe leaf and yeast extract—it also contains a blend of botanicals to smooth and hydrate skin. The result? A head start on all-day luminosity, and more bang for your moisturizer buck.

Nothing Special

I tried this product and didn't feel like it made a huge difference in the way my moisturizer worked. I already have so many steps in my cleansing routine to add one more that wasn't amazing is too much.

unsure what it really does

I can't say I really understand what this really does. I already use a serum, moisturizer, and primer under my make-up. I really don't want to add another layer of stuff...I'm feeling way too layered at this point. I can't say the times I did try it that I noticed anything major. I think my moisturizer does more for my skin than this would,.

Not for me
Sampled

The fragrance was terrible. It smelled harsh and felt like it was drying out my skin. I normally use a full skin care regimen, and tried this in place of my regular toner. Skin felt strange all day.

Nice feel
Sampled

The best thing about this product is the adorable bottle! The feel of this is so nice, goes on very light and smooth. Seems to really absorb. I used it with my regular moisturizer so I haven't notice a big difference, but it does feel good.

Best for Normal Skin Types

Formula was light-weight, leaving skin feeling "fresh." However, after a few days of use, my sensitive skin reacted adversely to the product: redness, irritation, breakout. Wouldn't recommend for sensitive or acne prone skin types.

Not for me...
Sampled

I have very sensitive skin and so I have to be careful about which products I use on my face. This product did seem to remove dirt from deep within pores, but I really didn't like that it was scented. It makes me feel like I'm putting unnecessary chemicals on my face. I also didn't like that after I put it on my face felt somewhat sticky. Maybe that's part of the whole prepping for moisture thing, but I don't regularly use moisture on my face because it tends to clog my pores so for me I want my toner to make my skin feel clean and soft.

Didn't notice a difference

This didn't seem to improve the effects of my moisturizer and is really so moisturizing on its own, I think it could probably be used alone. It is sort of a smooth gel texture, and my mineral makeup didn't really blend well over it.

Left my skin oily
Sampled

I actually wasn't terribly impressed with this product - it left my fairly non-greasy skin feeling greasy!

Cute bottle, thats all
Sampled

Bottle is cute, like others have said. But its not very practical for traveling. I keep all my samples in a basket, ready for use and throw them into my travel and/or gym bag. I'd be nervous traveling with this bottle in fear that it would break. I don't use toner currently and didn't necessarily think this adding this to my beauty routine was imperative. With that said I'm not a toner user, so perhaps thats why...
