Product details
Formulated in 1964, this unique formulation has been created for use after shaving or on oily-prone areas.
  • An iconic Kiehl's product, formulated in 1964
  • While the multipurpose facial astringent was created for use specifically on oily-prone areas, patrons with oilier skin employ it as an all-over toner
  • Male customers rely on it as a post-shave facial treatment
  • Just ask for the “Blue Stuff”!
Print
How to Apply:
  • Moisten a sterile cotton pad with facial toner, and apply to skin in areas where needed, avoiding the immediate eye area
  • Before applying, we recommend patch-testing a small amount of any cosmetic product on the inside skin of the wrist area to ascertain its compatibility with your skin
  • Use with Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser for best results



Cool Kiehl’s Fact:
  • When our chemists developed Kiehl’s iconic multi-purpose toner in 1964, its popularity took off almost from the start. Over forty years later, we attribute its appeal not only to its superior quality, but also its versatility. Kiehl’s male patrons tell us they use it as a post-shave treatment to soothe skin and prevent razor discomfort. Legend has it that Andy Warhol was a fan!
Key Ingredients
Camphor

Camphor

Derived from an eastern evergreen tree, Camphor is known to have a cooling effect on skin. It is often used in skincare products for oily skin.

Menthol

Menthol

Menthol is an invigorating ingredient known to provide an instant refreshing feeling to skin.

Sodium PCA

Sodium PCA

Sodium PCA is a naturally occurring humectant in the skin, partly responsible for the skin’s moisture-binding capacity. It is derived from amino acids and is highly water absorbing. Due to its moisture-binding ability, it is a high performance humectant which increases the skin’s softness when added to products.

Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Formula change It was great but new heavy alcohol formula doesn’t clean skin oil well. It’s aad but it doesn’t do the job now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lifesaver I've struggled with oily skin and cystic acne for more than 10 years. I've tried topical treatments (Differen, Aczone) and Accutane (not just once, but twice... that's how bad). I went to Kiehl's after using a product at a place I was staying. The employee sent me home with a sample of this blue stuff with advice to use as a spot treatment and wow. Like, wow. Within days, pimples zapped, blackheads GONE, oil under control. Now I use it all over my face. It's an essential part of my regimen. Kiehl's, you have a customer for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best toner for acne ever This is so far the best toner for acne skin I have ever used. I purchased this one a while ago, and almost half bottle is gone. My skin apparently gets so much better. I felt like my skin got less oil and the pimples became dried and pop off after a week. However, I don’t know if the alcohol ingredient has any effect on my skin after I stop using it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this for my daughter who has acne probe skin. Since she started using it her face has really started to shiw clearing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best product for oily skin I had experienced with oily face and acne for a long time . This is reason why I feel so uncomfortable with other product, always ineffective. When my friend recommend this product to me, I was kind of doubt while taking a chance to try it. The result of trying this product has been satisfied with my expectation. This is the best product for OIL-FREE EVER.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this stuff for clearing up acne. Only use it on spots as opposed to the whole face because I don't want to dry my skin completely out. Suggest using a moisturizer afterward.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Blue Astringent Herbal (Spot Treatment Alternative) Toner I can only suggest to use this product as a spot treatment only. Put a little bit on a cotton pad and use on acne spots. This product has a lot of Alcohol in it and more than likely will dry out your face. So for the love of all that is holy, use a moisturizer afterwords. You may ask, why not just use a spot treatment specifically labeled as a spot treatment? Some people may notice that their products that worked before don't work anymore - Their skin is probably becoming immune to it. This Astringent becomes a great alternative! Also, don't be fooled by the word "lotion" in the name. Just a play on words as most toners in other countries are called Lotions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cooling, and clearing When you initially put this on your skin, it feels cooling and refreshing. I would suggest you only put it on the areas that are troublesome, instead of your whole face. It can be over drying which caused my skin to overproduce oil I think. But I will continue to use it as a spot treatment instead of all over.

how to use it? do i apply moisturise after this ?

Asked by: Monique Cata
I apply mosisturizer after my face is dry from astringent. My son also uses the astringent and he does not apply moisterizer afterwards. So whatever preference you have.
