great toner for sensitive skin
Review by Jennifer
My sensitive skin cannot tolerate most skin care products. I have even sensitized to some of PC's products. But, this toner is fantastic and will be a staple in my skin care routine for as long as it's available (please, please NEVER stop producing this!!!)
One more thing - I also smooth a little of this over my skin after I shave. It helps prevent razor burn that can appear around my bikini line in the summer. It's very soothing. I wonder if men might find this to be a good all-natural alternative to after shave. (Posted on 06/07/2012)

What do toners "tone"? I thought Paula didn't recommend toners!
Paula has always recommended toners that are well-formulated. Toners can be a great after-cleansing step to be sure you've removed all your makeup and to give skin essential skin repairing and healing ingredients in a light liquid base. When properly formulated, toners soothe skin and add hydrating ingredients to make skin softer, not to mention they're another leave-on source for antioxidants and other ingredients that help repair and restore skin.
How do I know which toner is right for me? Besides skin type, what are the main differences between Paula's Choice toners?
All of our toners restore skin, help remove last traces of makeup, are alcohol- and fragrance-free, and contain no plant-based or synthetic irritants. All our toners are great as an adjunct to any skin-care routine. Even more significantly they go beyond the basics by offering skin benefits you can see and feel.
Earth Sourced Purely Natural Refreshing Toner is for all skin types. It has a distinctive, liquid-gel formula bursting with antioxidants proven to repair skin and stimulate collagen production. The formula uses proprietary technology that truly captures the best of nature and modern science.
Healthy Skin Refreshing Toner is an excellent choice for normal to oily/combination skin.
