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.
