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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by pahom Best solution for oily skin
I've been fighting oily skin for long time, and this one was a saviour. I've been using it for 4 years now and it works great. I noticed that when I ran out of it and don't use it even for couple days, my skin gets oily again so I always make sure to stack up to make sure I have enough.
Rated 5 out of 5 by pbot08 Very effective, not overly drying
This is the product I was looking for. It works very well to control my oily skin throughout the day, and I definitely notice on the days when I skip it. It makes my skin feel clean and fresh and not overly dry. Love this.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SeattleSweetheart So fresh and so clean!
Perfect toner that makes my skin feel ultra clean without over drying it. The Rare Earth line does a great job of making my skin feel really fresh, and the toner is no exception. When everything is used together, I definitely notice a difference in the appearance and texture of my skin. Love it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DenverGrl A sceptic...no more!
I have large pores and oily skin. I saw this product and was thinking "yeah right, another pore minimizer and oil reducer!!" When I put it on, it felt like there was nothing on my skin. This made me even more... a sceptic...until I saw the results!! My skin had no shine and no pores! No way!! I put on my makeup and my skin looked like glass. Clay absorbs oil...for a matte glow.
The results were amazing. I love this product. Did not break me out and kept my skin from getting oily...ALL DAY. :-)
To me it's almost like a light primer...without that "clogged up" feeling. I would recommend this to anyone with oily skin and large pores.
