Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swoon! Oh Rare Earth Pore Refining Tonic (inhale) - how do I love thee? This is the only tonic/toner I have EVER used that works well on my skin. It helps control my oil - I've noticed that my pores seem smaller - and it doesn't dry out my skin even though it controls the oil! It also seems to help with my breakouts. It's a miracle. I will cry, scream, kick and then beg on hands and knees for more if Kiehl's ever discontinues this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pores...What Pores! This tonic is the consistency of water which is very refreshing because there is no thickness to it. I have very sensitive skin and this tonic has a cooling effect and I have had no irritation at all. I have been using this in combination with the rare earth mask and my pores are almost completely gone after only 3 uses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love If I could slap a ring on this toner and lawfully wed it, I would! Sound a little dramatic- then you haven't tried this yet. I have struggled with my pores the last two years. One morning I woke up and there was this vast grid of visible pores on my entire forehead and I went into mourning for 2 weeks. I have no idea what triggered their appearance but they have given me trouble ever since. I even went so far as to cut my bangs as I no longer had the confidence to wear them to the side and I was always self conscious when I was out and carried a compact with me to touch up every couple hours when the shine would make them a beacon for lost ships. I used the toner last night and this morning and I am in awe. We got up went up to the zoo all day, came home and collapsed and took a nap and it is now 12 hours since I applied my makeup- no touchups and my skin looks wonderful. The matte finish after all these hours is incredible. It does not- nor would any product- completely get rid of the appearance of my pores but the difference is amazing. I actually giggled when I got up from my nap and looked in the mirror. I also use the deep pore exfoliant and the abyssine copper with spf 23 as my moisturizer but the addition of the deep pore toner was the missing piece. If I could give the lovely people who developed this a big hug I would.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not the best. I brought this toner sometimes last year but only had recently started using it daily. I was drawn to this toner because of what the company claimed it does and how raving the reviews were. Unfortunately I haven't seen much much transformation or seen result that the toner claimed to do. First thing I notice was the smell, it has a strong alcohol scent, but it soon dissipate. Second, it leaves a white residue on some spot when dries, but I guess it is due to clay. While this toner helped controlled and mattified my oily T-zone, I see no difference in my pore size nor has it helped clean out the pores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty good toner! I started using this toner to address my large pores -- and this product definitely did the trick! I got noticeable compliments on the suppleness of my skin and the tightness of my pores. I also noticed fewer small breakouts and acne. Clearer fresher skin all around. I think it also evened out my skin tone. This product did a lot of great things for me! One drawback: I feel like it dried my skin in dryness-prone areas

Rated 3 out of 5 by from BEWARE if you're not oily skin I have normal skin but this toner always dries my skin very badly so I have to use the KIehls Ultra Facial Cream ._. so far,i cant really see the result of this product If you have dry skin,NEVER buy it or you'll regret it anyway i think it's suitable for oily skin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't start my day without it! I added this toner to my daily regimen a few months ago and now I wonder how I ever started my day without it. It feels great right after a shave, or straight out of the shower - and it manages my skin so I don't get that oily glow that used to creep up in the afternoons. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed I have for a long time loved the rare earth mask, as well as the lotion. I have normal/ combination skin with large pores. I received this as a gift back in march and I was hesitant. My previous experience with toners was not a positive one- they all left my skin feeling dry and as if it was going rip open any any time. THIS CHANGED MY LIFE. I don't want to go even a day with out having this in my routine. Alone it makes my skin feel soft and fresh, minimizes my pores, and leaves my skin with a nice matte finish. It is a great base product for my Kiehls routine- day and night. I have a about a 1/4 of a bottle left and am purchasing more because I do not want to go even a day with out it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite toner I really enjoy using this toner. I have sensitive combo skin but this toner does a great job of providing a matte effect without being drying. Please make a travel size available!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 1 out of 5 by from 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 from Great Toner for Oily Skin I have oily, shiny skin and this does a good job mattifying. It also makes your skin feel clean without feeling at all dry. I jjst started using so will have to see how it affects the pores but so far so good and my wife loves it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This is the best product in my collection! This tonic noticeably minimizes pore size and rids of dirt in just a few days time. Its application is easy and the step by step instructions are wonderful, especially for newcomers. My skin feels tighter and clearer and I would hate to run out of this product ad not have it even for a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A necessity for my skincare regimine I use the Rare Earth Pore Refining Tonic in between the Ultra Facial Oil Free cleanser and lotion. I have oily skin prone to acne and this system is amazing. My skin feels great all day!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great toner I have oily, acne-prone skin, so I'm always hesitant to try new products. But I am so glad I gave this toner a try because it's great. I do hate having to shake it up everytime I use it, but that's just a tiny inconvenience I can overlook. It didn't make me break out or dry my skin out. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from Perfect addition to my skin care regimen keeps my pores clear and my skin matte for hours. I have VERY oily skin and this combined my my other Kiehl's skin care products keeps me matte for hours. as with other products I've used I am very happy with the performance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too drying I didn't really like this product and it's a bit disappointing as I have been a loyal Kiehl's customer for a very long time. This product claims to mattifies the skin, clean away dirt and minimize pores. It does a good job of mattifying but at the end of the day, my skin gets oilier to compensate for the lack of moisture. I use moisturizing serum and other moisturizers on top of it and it still didn't improve my skin condition. I had to return this product but I found out Kiehl's actually do not provide free return shipping labels to its customers. I think they should change that policy if they want to stand by the "100% guarantee" slogan. In the end, I did get a refund but not after having to argue with a customer service representative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Undoubtably my favorite product! My type of skin is oily. This tonic makes it possible for me to have a nice healthy looking skin. When I don't use it I start to get pimples. That's why I use it everyday without fail. Best product ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from Never leave home without applying I slap this on my face before applying a moisturizer every time! makes my pores smaller, my skin looking smooth and fresh, less greasy and its easy to apply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall a good tonic, gives balance my skin properly, and it does control oil, if you have blemish, this is the one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from where did my pores go?! I almost never write a review, but this toner calls for it. I have dry skin, but struggle with big dirty looking pores. I wash my face twice daily and take really good care of it, so its frustrating that I hadn't found something that really scrubs and shrinks my pores. I HAVE FINALLY FOUND IT! I hope to never be without this toner. I love it so so so much and my sin has never looked better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 from Should have tried this sooner! So I’m 27 with sensitive and combination skin. Recently I tried the birth control arm implant and it gave me moderate acne along my jawline. I have been trying all my tricks to calm it ( I’m allergic to most skin care) but nothing was taming it. I decided to give this toner a try since I love the mask so much. I have been using this for a week, morning and night. It has controlled my oil production significantly. Usually I put my makeup on by 7am and am oily by noon but since using this, I don’t need to blot till about 4pm! As far as my acne goes, it has definitely calmed down and the bumps are starting to disappear. For the claims of pore size reduction, that has yet to be determined. Pore size is genetic so I don’t expect them to magically disappear. I’m totally happy with the oil control. Make sure to shake the bottle well before application. I’ve also used my midnight recovery on top of this and everything is still fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have huge pores due to constant acne and breakouts over many years and I tried this with out much expectation but boy, I am delightedly surprised. I am using the toner with rare earth mask and my pores actually seem smaller now and my skin feels cleaner. I am almost done with my first bottle and buying it again!
