Birchbox Breakdown

This hydrating toner is to our complexion what a date with Harry Styles is to a teenage girl—totally, unbelievably awesome. Ms. Paula’s moisturize-restoring toner, which is applied after you wash your face but before you put on moisturizer, whisks away excess oil and dirt. Beyond boosting the performance of your cleanser, the refreshing formula soothes to relieve redness and improve skin tone, smooths wrinkles, and firms skin.

can't live without this!

I just started using a toner when I started my all-PC regimen, and I wish I'd been using one all along. This toner removes every bit of make-up and dirt, and makes my skin glow. I need less of the BHA exfoliant, too, once I've applied the toner. PC is incredible--I highly recommend the full routine of cleaners, toner, liquid exfoliant, and moisturizer. I have really oily, congested skin, and just two weeks of these products made all the difference.

AWESOME FOR MY BROWN SPOTS!

So when I"m on a retinoid, my skin turns orange.. and ugly orange. So I have to lighten my skin a little so I use this with a bit of hydroquinone and my gosh what a difference it makes! It feels so nice on my skin and my skin looks radiant! I love this stuff so much!

Okay product
Purchased

I purchased this toner as part of the resist anti aging line. I won't be purchasing again. This line is not good for combination skin. It left my very normal skin greasy and caused breakouts. I haven't had a single pimple in over 5 years until using this line. I saw no improvement in my fine lines or wrinkles.

Hidrating
Purchased

I liked this product, It feels very hidrating instead of ussing a cotton ball wich I think takes a lot of the product i just put in in my hands and apply it on my face an neck.
If you want extra cleaning you can remove the excess with he cotton ball. I do think it relieves redness howver I do not have a chronic skin condition .
I havent seen any wrinkle smothing but the hidration is definitelly a good thing of this product.

Love
Purchased

I purchased this as partner a three step routine. It had an interesting consistency. I expected it to be straigh liquid but it has almost like a watered-down lotion consistency. I've been using it for a while now and I'm really starting to notice a difference.

Lovely Toner
Purchased

I have very sensitive skin, so I normally use toner as a cleanser, it's about the only 'cleaning' my face gets...other than a rinse in the shower. Usually my toners of the past were rather drying, but this one feels like silk in a bottle. Very soft and refreshing. It easily whisks away the dirt and grime from the day. It has also done a decent job of reducing the redness my fair skin usually shows. However, I can't say it's done much for my fine lines/wrinkles. I'd be inclined to purchase it again, if I don't find something better in a future sample pack.

Good product but small and expensive
Purchased

I love the quality and price of Paula's Choice products. However, I was a little surprised to discover that this product, despite being more expensive, is only 4 ounces to the usual 6.4 ounces of her other toners. While this works better than her pore reducing toner during the colder, drier months, I don't know if I'll be repurchasing it.

Toner
Purchased

This toner is very moisturizing. Most toners irritate my skin and dry out my face. This toner is great, but I think it is causing breakouts.

Moisture makes me happy

Got this as a mystery box sample (Those are hit and miss, but I always grab mine anyway and sometimes you get the goods... like a deluxe sample of this!). I was so happy to try it because I've hit the age where the stupidity smoking and sun without protection in my youth is starting show up on my face! Not a real noticeable difference on the fine lines yet... but it goes on silky and doesn't get sticky at all! It also does restore the moisture in my skin and seems to be improving my skin tone... so hopefully the rest come soon!

Great Toner
Purchased

Thanks to Birchbox I was introduced to Paula’s Choice products and I couldn't be more grateful. I've started using 4 of her products already and about a week into my routine I can already see a difference in my oily skin. The Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Oil-Absorbing Mask
I've used twice already and I love how my skin feels after. At night, before bed, this is my new routine: I start with Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Oil-Reducing Cleanser then Paula's Choice RESIST Advanced Replenishing Toner and I complete it with Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Exfoliant. I must say that the toner is the first toner I've use that doesn't burn my face when using it. It cleans off all makeup or dirt left behind and my face feels super clean. I can already tell that I will be using these products for a very long time.
