Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rare Earth Pore Refining Tonic This toner did not help at all! Very disappointed :(

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 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!

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 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 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.

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.

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.

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..

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 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 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.

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 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 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 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 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 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!

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 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 I am a believer! I have VERY oily skin, and by very I mean that my face was previously "greasy" but the time I arrived at work after only a 20-25 minute drive. I used this product for the first time yesterday (along with the moisturizer) and my face has an appropriate glow, but I am no longer wiping that greasy, oily look from my face every 5 minutes. I highly recommend this product to anyone that has oily skin.

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 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 4 out of 5 by from good stuff Really helped minimize pores, and take away shine. Doesnt overdry.

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.
