It's okay as a cleansing water, not as a toner.
I bought it hoping I could use it as a substitute for my Kiehl's Calendula Toner. I know it's supposed to be a cleansing water, but some reviews I read said it can also be used as a toner so I had high hopes for it. Unfortunately it didn't meet my expectations.
When I wipe it on my face with a cotton pad, there's a soapy feeling to it--as if I put soap and water in bottle, shook it, and used a cotton pad to apply it to my face. Apart from micellar water, I've never used any other kind of cleansing water so I don't know if all cleansing waters have that soapy feeling. I'm also not a fan of the smell. It's not bad, it's just quite strong.
But to be fair, if I were to review it as a cleansing water, then it's not bad but it's not overly impressive either. It gets the job done I guess, but for the price and my personal experience with it, I wouldn't repurchase.
