This is the best toner I have ever tried. It does exactly what it claims to do and more. My face doesn't get oily after I put my make-up on, it stays balanced and toned. Another thing I have noticed is my make-up stays in place when I use this toner. It makes my skin look smooth and my pores appear smaller. Love it!
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?
Best Answer: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.
Best Answer: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.
How does this toner react to moisturizers? Let's say you wash your face, then tone with this toner and then put on any moisurizer? Does it suck out all the hydrating goodies you just put on?

Best Answer:I feel this toner reacts great to moisturizers. I use it everyday and have been using it for a couple of years now. It does not suck out all the hydrating goodies you just put on. It leaves your face feeling refreshed with a matte finish.
I use the Rare Earth Pore Refining Tonic before I use the Abyssine Facial Cream and it seems to work fine. It just makes a nice matte surface so that the cream isn't just sitting on top of my skin feeling like an extra layer.
It did not clog my pores, there is only a small amount of the rare earth material in this. The other products in this line do have more of the material though and they do leave a bit of residue on your face.
Is this product something that you can use at night or does it only mattify and refine pores during the day?

Best Answer:You can use it night and day. There's a lotion that Kiehl has that renew your skin from the harshness of the day. I forget the name,but it's only meant to be used at night. It even come in a dark glass container that protect it from sun light
Best Answer:Hi Andrew, did you mean acne-prone skin? If so, yes. Rare Earth Pore Refining Tonic minimises pores and provides and helps to provide an even skin tone. I've been using the Rare Earth line of products for 3 years now and it has never failed in making my skin look the best it should.
Best Answer:I expect you will find your results improved. I have been using this product for over a year now and my skin has never looked better. Since your skin will be clean and smooth, you should expect the rest of your Kiehl's products to perform even better. I use it in conjuction with the Crystal Marine line and love the results.
