Rare Earth Pore Refining Tonic is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reduces pores This is a great product I does help reduce the appearance of pores. I've ran out and I'm buying again.
Date published: 2017-07-10
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 I love this! I have never loved a product enough to write a review about it until now. I have a really oily forehead and get lots of pimples and often big painful under the skin spots. I have been good at cleansing and moisturising my skin everyday for some time now but it has never really improved my skin, and i've been searching high and low for the past 5 years for something that will help it. I decided to introduce a toner into my skincare routine and thank god I picked this one. About 2-4 weeks after using this toner twice a day, my skin cleared up massively, and I don't think that's just a coincidence. I have been using this for about 3 months now, and haven't had any big red spots since and the amount of bumps and pimples on my forehead have significantly decreased. I don't know what its done or how but I literally couldn't love this product more and i'm so happy with how my skin looks now the spots have stopped and the scaring is starting to heal ! yay yay yay

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
Date published: 2017-01-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but... I love this product however, after using it continuously for a number of weeks I found that it dried my skin out (especially my nose) even though I have very oily skin. Unfortunately, I had to give this to a friend as I didn't want to waste it and had gone past my 30 days. I'd suggest using this every other day or when your skin is feeling particularly oily and clogged.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-10-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's Good, But Not For Me... 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.
Date published: 2016-04-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic in a Bottle 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.
Date published: 2016-04-11
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh.. 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..
Date published: 2015-12-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 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 Does the job Decided to get this 3 days ago and I can already feel/see the difference. I use this alongside my other daily Kiehl's products (Ultra Facial Oil free lotion and Midnight recovery) and it works a treat! You can feel this working as soon as you put it on! It has reduced the size of my pores and my skin looks less oily throughout the day
Date published: 2015-05-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it It is a very refreshing tonic, always feels cool on the skin. You need to shake the bottle to stimulate the clay. Its non greasy & very refreshing & dries quickly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm not a 'skin care' kind of bloke but... ok so I'm mid forties I'm not the vain type but I still got spots, quite a few around the mouth almost daily(mmm perhap those packets of digestives don't help... :-)). Tried various skin scub types things but nothing really helped. Came across Kiehls in London, gobsmacked at the price. I'm a bloke, £17 for a bottle of tonic, your kidding right? Hey guess what, it's cheap I don't get spots now. Last me about 4 months eachone. Also my 19 year son, lots of spots too, tried everything under the sun, even antibiotics, no real change,eating healthy, no change. Sounding like an advert I said to him 'well you know this stuff has worked for me'... and guess what it's worked for him! I'm really surprised because I know there are different causes for teenage versus 'mature person' spots, but hey! He's spot free for some time now. I'm delighted for him.

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 Thank god No more shiny oily skin... Use this under my make up and I still look fresh after my shift. With out this I look really shiny and greasy. My new favourite product!
Date published: 2014-06-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from brilliant Having used a few different toners in the past this has to be the best one I've used, it gives you a nice tingly feeling once you apply but then starts to really work on the skin, my pores have seemed to have got smaller and this also makesyour makeup look nicer as the skin is so much more rerefreshed, I would also recommend the rare earth clay mask for really good looking skin too, an absolute must have!
Date published: 2014-06-05
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 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.
Date published: 2014-05-20
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.
Date published: 2014-03-05
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 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.

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 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 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 5 out of 5 by from Newbie I think alll of the RARE EARTH products are fantastic, absolutely 100% perfect for my skin, in store I had a skin test then the woman went through what was right for me. She reccomned a full daily skin routine, total of which came to £82.50 I had to have a long think as that is a lot of money to anyone for creams. I took the plunge and I will NEVER look back! what a stunning product! does exactly what it says it will! NOTHING puts a price on the way you look and feel! this product range will give you so much confidence and make you YOU! WILL BE SUGGESTING TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Total Shine Blocker! I bought a bottle of this last September '12 and I'm just about reaching the end of it.....I'm running to get a replacement as I cannot live w/o it....it mattifyies skin to the point where you'll wind up looking like a dull stone if you forget to add moisturizer after the fact. It does an excellent job in shrinking my colander sized pores and keeps me matte most of the day. I stopped using it for a while as I found it made me too dry but my skin is a mystery I still can't seem to figure out. I started again about two months ago and cannot be w/o it....i also have some at the office where i use it to refresh my skin at the end of the workday....all in all, a lifesaver if you tend to shine like a sun reflecting mirror!

Should this be used before serums & moisturizers?

I've seen better results using it right after cleansing and toning, and then following with another serum, though, the clearly corrective is a serum and then moisturizer with your moisturizer of choice.

What are people's recommended methods for applying this product? The bottle suggests pouring it into your palms and splashing it on your face, but I'm afraid of wasting it. Does putting the toner on a cotton square work just as well?

Asked by: Kim Lee
Usually I pour a very small amount in a tiny bowl and use my finger tips to pat on my skin. I feel like the minerals get left behind if I use a cotton pad. Also making a small tight bowl with your palm and using the other hand to pat on your skin works.
