Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product with unisex appeal Works great as a soothing toner on oily, acne-inflamed skin. My boyfriend and I used to fight over the bottle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second time's a charm... So the first time I used this years ago to help with my combination/ breakout prone skin & I just didn't see what all the hype was about. Flash forward 15 years & I am training for a marathon...& now I get it! This stuff gets rid of dirt & grime in one fowl swoop, is incredibly refreshing, and has kept my post-workout breakouts at bay. I swipe it on my face & shoulders after I workout & have fallen in love with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great astringent! This is my favorite thing that Kiehl's makes. It's great, and I use it twice a day for my adult acne. I could not find any other products that worked like this does. It's excellent. My husband even uses it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thirty-one years of using this incredible product!!! I have been using Kiehl's products for thirty-one years. Having very oily, acne-prone skin, I must testify that this is the BEST astringent I have ever used!! Being a work-out fanatic, I have suggested this unique product to many of my gym acquaintances(both male and female) as a great refresher with cooling and tightening benefits for after exercise. I am constantly thanked for the recommendation. Now please accept my thanks and continue making such wonderful products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Astringent -Ever! I adore (yes, adore) this product. I have combo skin, and this astringent helps "even" me out. After I wash off my makeup, I use this to get the "residue" off, and it leave my skin feeling clean, and not tight. Works great at combating my oily-prone forehead and at combating my large pores -and helps keep breakouts at bay. I have used this product for 10+ years now, and have gleefully introduced several people to it. Great, great stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product out there! I am obsessed with Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion. It is my go to product from Kiehl's (and let's just say I use all their products!). It is so refreshing and cooling and I use it throughout the day. If I need a quick clean and don't have time to fully wash my face, this is that product. I also use it with the Blue Cleanser and spot treatment. It leaves my face feeling squeaky clean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One, two Punch I love using this astringent with the face wash. Its so refreshing. It can be a little drying, so if you have issues with that I would use a moisturizer after. I have oily skin though, so it works perfectly for me. These two products have made my skin better than it ever has been.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will purchase again and again This is my first solution when I have break out. It doesn't work as miracle, but it works better than most other product I tried. It also controls oil greatly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, something that works! I work at a department store and decided to try a sample of this. Wow! This stuff is amazing! I've been fighting a losing battle against my oily skin for over 20 years. After being disappointed by every product I've tried, I gave up. While more costly than the treatments found at the supermarket, its effectiveness more than makes up for the cost. I've only been using this for less than a week and I already notice a huge reduction of oil on my face. This product is a Godsend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Staple for All! This product has been a mainstay in our home for over 30 years. It was first recommended to me by a Doctor for back acne. It worked! It is marvelous for acne, pimples, aftershave, relieves any itches or bug bites. We are never without it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bothering Flakes If I use this toner only, it would be okay in spite of the dry feeling, but if I put on other lotions or creams after this toner, I have to often wash my face again because of all the white flakes on my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from okay. super awesome. The title says it all! I love this product! Even though I don't really get zits, whenever I do, this is my go-to product. It dries up all of the oil INSTANTLY! It also smells really nice :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love it or hate it This is a love it or hate it product. It has a very pleasant scent and texture. Love the colour as well. My skin feels cool (very minty) when i first put it on. It does what it promises but the con is that this lotion is extremely drying! uncomfortably drying! I have super oily skin, this lotion is by far the only product that controls the oil but it dries my skin like heck as well!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The World's Best Electric Pre-Shave Lotion "The World's Best Electric Pre-Shave Lotion" says tt all! I have used this great product as my pre-shave for more than 25 years, and it allows me to shave my sensitive skin as smooth as a baby's bottom. I not only recommend it to my friends but to my clinical patients who need a modestly priced acne-reducing skin lotion. By the way, Blue Lotion also makes a superb (albeit expensive) deodorant during the summer. So soothing...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have The is the one Kiehl's product I could not go without. It makes my skin feel fresh and cleaned. It is the perfect in between step from washing to moisturizing. And my skin is clearer because of it, the tone has improved. It's the liquid gold in my skin care regimen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Go to treatment. This can be a little harsh to use all over your face everyday but I use it at night after I was my face (facial fuel cleanser) if I have any breakouts or if i've sweat a lot that day (Gym or just NYC in the summer) I can actually see the blemishes disappear and my pores shrink. blackheads on my nose are a thing of the past and its excellent to prevent any razor irritation. I like to use the facial fuel tonic in the morning after I was but I can only seem to find that in stores and not here on the website... Odd. My skin has been great since I've been using Kiehl's. I really love the products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! My skin has been as stressed out as I am, and I'm afraid at the age of 28 my face is breaking out all over the place! I decided to trust Kiehl's to help restore my skin, and it did not disappoint. I was looking for an acne-fighting toner and moisturizer, and I have found both in this one product. My face feels drier but not too dry that I would need additional moisturizer. However I do have to agree with what Tiziano said below - it does form a sort of barrier on your skin, and no moisturizer will go on after using this product. Strange!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A Dud, I'm Afraid I've used the product as an after-shave lotion. Unlike other astringents I've tried (which cost a fraction of this one), it's extremely drying. It also creates a "barrier" that prevents the moisturizer I use from being absorbed. Would only recommend it for people who have extremely oily skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff I don't use this EVERY day, but when breakouts are happening- it really helps to minimize the length of the problems. It never dries me out, either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From teenagers to adults............... My 17 year old and myself both share and absolutely love this product. When we have a few sporadic breakouts we pull out the Blue. Makes your face feel smooth and clean. Love it!
