Rated 2 out of 5 by LCCC Just disappointed!
This toner did not do anything for my combination Oily skin, just had to return it back to Kiehl's store in Sherman oaks, CA.

I like the idea of this toner; however, I personally don't have oily enough skin to fully benefit from this toner. It's great if you are looking for that matte finish and to not feel dry after.
You'll notice the clay pools to the bottom of this bottle, so you'll want to shake it up before you use it. Also, don't use a cotton pad to apply this toner, as the cotton pad will soak the clay particles up and be useless to your skin.

I didn't think that my oily skin with very large pores could ever appear to be matte...until I tried this toner. I am using it with the facial wash and I am having amazing results. Despite being in my 40's, I never outgrew my oily skin. My makeup now goes on smoothly and I can go all day without shiny skin. Best of all, My pores no longer look like tiny swimming pools on my cheeks.

I wanted this to love this..mainly because I read some great reviews. Nothing special for me.. and the cost didn't make it worth it. If it works for you awesome..
Rated 5 out of 5 by littlerager Interesting... and amazing!
I sampled the Rare Earth Tonic on the back of my hand while trying to waste time at an airport. Much to my surprise, the patch on my hand where I had put it still felt different from the rest of my hand hours later. Matte, but not dry. I was impressed enough that I bought a bottle and I absolutely LOVE it. Along with the Rare Earth Cleanser it has helped to clear a ton of black heads out of the unfortunately large pores that I have on my face. It keeps the shine away all day long. It has only a light smell of alcohol to it. There's no burn or discomfort. As long as the bottle gets a good shake to mix the clay around, it's pretty hard to make it uneven. And it's great under make-up if you're into powders only - I don't know about cream foundations. I can't say thank you enough to Kiehl's for creating this incredible product!
Rated 1 out of 5 by KHewlett Not sure why people are saying it's alcohol-free
I bought this toner hoping since the Rare Earth line has become a personal favorite & must-have in my routine. I'd had the Calendula Herbal Alcohol-Free toner first but didn't notice any difference. Upon first opening the bottle I immediately got an immediately strong whiff of alcohol (and yes, I'd shaken it up well). I don't know if the ingredients have changed since some of the other reviews saying it's alcohol-free but it clearly says on the ingredients label that the 2nd ingredient in this is denatured alcohol, which is a mixture of ethyl alcohol (ethanol) and additives (the denature process) that, among other things, intentionally creates the unusually strong scent of alcohol. If that is not enough of a deterrent, denatured alcohol is used as fuel for burners and stoves. I'm not completely opposed to alcohol in my toner but it's overpowering here & dries my skin. Disappointed since Rare Earth has so many other great products. Two unsuccessful toners so far. Becoming more and more convinced I don't need a toner, going to try the cucumber one next.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Alli Works wonders!
This product is amazing. I have somewhat oily skin that tends to break out in the summer (horrible humidity) & I have a few dry patches below my cheek bones. After a solid week of using this product, my dry patches are gone, my skin is not breaking out at all, my face feels so soft, my color is more radiant. I absolutely noticed a difference & use this every morning & night.
Would highly recommend this to anyone!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Raven Love this With Cleanser
I really like to use this with the matching facial cleanser and one of its best qualities is that it doesn't have alcohol. It's very soothing to the skin.
