Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.I was really excited to try this product to counteract the redness caused by my breakouts but unfortunately, it didn't suit my skin. A few seconds after application my skin turned red and I felt a stinging/burning sensation that subsided only after a couple of minutes and several layers of thick moisturizer. I am happy with the rest of my PC products, this toner is simply not the best fit for my skin.
Customer Care: Hi Sveva, thank you for your review of our Calm Soothing Liquid Toner. I'm sorry to hear that this product isn't right for your skin. Athough irritation isn't a common result of this product, all skin is different and no one product works the same for everybody. If you are still struggling with irritation I recommend considering the Calm Serum. I'm happy to see you are in contact with our customer care team already about your experience. Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer CareIt burns my face and turns it red every time. I don't really have a particularly sensitive facial skin though and usually fine with any product, but this one was not compatible with my skin whatsoever

Although this is not a common response, we do understand that each customer is uniquely different in how they will respond to certain products or ingredients.

Though, when I tried it, my face turned red and it felt like burning. The following morning, my skin still felt uncomfortable.
I am happy this product works for other people, but it is definitely not for me.
Customer Care: Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that this product was not for you, but are happy to see that our customer care team has provided you with an alternative solution.This toner has actaully made a difference on my sensitive skin. It feels and looks much better and I really feel it does what it says. The smell though, is slightly unpleasant (otherwise it would definitely have gotten five stars), but I can live with that.This is a soothing and calming toner for my oily yet sensitive skin. Nice to use when having the red and flaming feeling on the cheeks. I may still like the Clinical Redness Relief better... This toner is liquid - Clinical Redness Relief is a bit gel-like.
