Thoughts: When I first used this, I thought it was too gentle and I wondered how I would ever finish such a big bottle for toning alone. It lay unloved on my shelf for about two months after which I felt bad and gave it another go. Now I can't imagine my life without it. It just goes with everything. Mostly I use it as toner or face refresher throughout the day but it works soooo well with DIY serums, lotions, masks, and I use it to dampen my Beauty Blender too. It's so gentle and soothing that I sometimes put some on cotton rounds and just put on top of closed eyes to depuff. I'm onto my second bottle now! The natural cleansing properties of witch hazel make sure my acne prone skin is protected.
