My experience
This is the first time am using alcohol free toner!! I used it after I cleaned my face with a cleansing milk. I took a little amount of toner and dabbed all over my face. The toner is transparent in colour with a strong smell of green tea and added fragrances.

The toner comes with a press button cap and dispenses a little extra toner if the bottle is tilted more. My skin felt instantly fresh after the use and experienced a little tingling sensation. This might be due to the glycolic acid in the toner. I have a love and hate relationship with this toner. The day I get a breakout I blame the toner. When I don’t get any acne I praise the toner. Basically the glycolic acid brings the deep seated comedogens to the surface and helps in getting clear skin. Do not rub the toner on your face, just swipe gently on face. I would suggest sensitive skin types to stay away from the product.

The fragrance is the only thing which I didn’t like about the toner. It’s a little strong and lingered for around one and half hour after use. Other than this I find the product good.

Overall thoughts
The toner does an good job in tightening of the pores. It has reduced the size of my pores after multiple usage of the product. Moreover it comes with the goodness of green tea, a great antioxidant. Overall the toner is good toner for oily skin, just sans the fragrance (for me that was the problem)

Repurchase and Recommend – Yes!
