A wonderful hydrator July 2017
”I haven’t used many hydrating toners, but I do really love this product. I have been using this for about a month now and I do think it has really helped smooth and even out my skin texture. I have very dry, sensitive skin and I was a bit worried because almost every toner I have tried has given me irritation, but not this essence toner!! On really hot days, I don’t even bother with moisturizer in the morning. I just use this toner and it adds the right amount of hydration and soaks in quickly so I don’t end up sweating off all the product! It has been a bit of a revelation using this product and it’s a great value as well!”

No fuss, no frills, just true to its claim

Have been using this for only 4 days but saw the difference on 1st use. My skin is so sensitive it only takes as few as 3 applications (yes, applications, not days) for it to react. Product is slightly viscous but spreads like water, is quickly absorbed by skin, has a silky matte finish (with a bit of healthy glow) when patted dry with hands. No sticky feeling or residue at all. Unbelievably ultra lightweight which is perfect for Philippine heat & humidity. Product is recommended for dry skin but I have extremely sensitive (even Cetaphil & Physiogel dry me out) & very oily skin (I need 3 oil films a day) but this works well for me. Product is so much better than using oil control toner, sebum control lotion & shine control powder all at the same time which i have done. With this, I find I don't have to use a single oil control film at all! I also don't have to use face powder either because it has given me a shine-free look. Product gives you that "fresh face" look, effortlesly. This is the only new product I've introduced into my skincare routine so I can definitely associate lessening of oil production to this. My skin now is a proud living testament to PYL's philosophy of balancing oil & mositure in the skin...and I've only started using this toner. Will start with the cream, serum and ampoule in the coming weeks.

I heard so many positive reviews about this product and I can say that it is all true. I love how it leaves my skin smooth and hydrated. I also like how the ingredients are very minimal and doesn't contain any strong fragrances that irritates my face. Some people recommend this product for those who have dry skin type but for me this product is good for every skin types, however, it can be too drying for them. But in my case, as an oily acne-prone skin, it did not broke me out and it did not felt heavy on my face, I just love how it feels when being applied, very mild and relaxing.

HG STATUS! i love it so much

after having my skin basically get wrecked from the klairs vitamin c serum (did not work for me at all), this toner helped my skin heal to what it was before the horrible setback. dont be intimidated by the clinical looking bottle, it is really quite gentle on the skin. i heard of this through the youtube channel Gothamista, and she has never steered be wrong before so i bit the bullet even after seeing the price. this toner has really become an HG for me, after stopping all harsher skincare products after my moisture barrier got compromised i replaced my typical toner with this one and just stuck to hydration hydration hydration to heal my skin and after a week or two my skin is looking better than ever with the exception of leftover dark spots from the cystic acne i got. i also tried the 7 skin method with this toner (though ive only reached 2 skins so far because of the Philippine weather, maybe when it gets colder) and this toner does not clog at all!!! i apply it using my hands directly to freshly cleansed face day and night and i can really see the difference. when using this dont expect a huge difference after a day or two, it takes time to work and it isn't a product thats gonna wow you with its effects but quietly surprise you one day after using it for a while because of how healthy and glowy your skin looks. absolutely love this product

Best hydrating toner out there!

I purchased this toner since I needed a toner that will help hydrate my skin and keep it moisturize during the day. My skin is still battling acne scars and hoping that this toner will help prevent impurities. This toner does the work! I've been using this for more than 2 months now and my skin loves it. I apply it every day, morning and night after I cleanse. I also love that it doesn't have a scent. It feels so pure and hydrating. Will definitely re-purchase this!!

Worth the hype!

This toner got so many positive reviews from blogs and from youtube videos so I wanted to try this out. I was blown away by how gentle and hydrating this product is. Although this was made for drier skin, I think it would also fair with oily and sensitive skin like mine. I also really liked that this toner is water-free and only had a very short ingredient list. It definitely was soothing and I really enjoy using this.

My NEW HG toner too!

I've been using this toner for over a month now and all I can say is that this is my new HG toner. Just what the first reviewer had said, I also discovered this through Renee of Gothamista from Youtube and so far so good everything she recommends has worked wonders on my skin. I loooove this toner because my skin feels so amazing and dehydrated. And, for over a month now, my skin's texture improved and looked plumped! I also love how it only has 7 ingredients and has no alcohol in it. It only actually takes 5 drops or less to cover the whole face and if you want a bang for the buck (no need to use cotton balls) I suggest to just put drops of it in your palm then apply/pat it all over your face and your neck. I'll surely be repurchasing this once my bottle is halfway through. And, just so you know, it's not even halfway through yet! ;)
