i didn’t love this product but it is still a good toner. i didn’t see much of a difference in my skin but that is because i need a stronger acid to exfoliate and tone. would absolutely recommend to anyone with sensitive skin or someone who can’t tolerate strong exfoliating acids.

This toner has definitely helped minimize acne but does dry out my skin. Trying to find the the ideal balance between using this and a more gentle toner to reduce dryness. Overall love the product.

I am obsessed with this toner. I have been using it for well over a year now and I just keep coming back to it. It does burn and I've noticed such a positive change in my skin since I started using this and the matching fash wash. My skin breaks out less, my complexion looks more even, and it keeps the pores on my nose nice and cleaned out. Definitely a holy grail and necessity in my skincare routine.

The effect of cleaning and clearing pore is there. It helped remove any residues on my skin after the washing step. However, if I use it daily, it made my skin dry and was a bit harsh on my skin. I reduced it to twice a week, and therefore it works like a charm again. Also goes well with my current moisturizer and toner, so highly recommend it.

I love La Roche-Posay.. This toner/clarifying solution works nice for clogged pores. 0.5% salicylic acid 2% glycolic acid - no sticky feeling - feels face feeling refreshed It may dry your skin out so if your skin is already pretty dry I wouldn’t suggest using this, or as often….

AMAZING MUST TRY

This is by far the most Important part of my skin care routine. I use this every night after cleaning with their Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser and my last step is a generous amount of the Lipikar Body Lotion Daily Repair Moisturizing Cream(this is for the face too!). This was an incredible match for my combo skin. I cannot believe the results. I also take a daily probiotic because bad skin usually starts with poor gut health. This routine has changed my skin drastically in 2 weeks. MUST TRY: For combo sensitive skin 1. Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser 2. Effaclar Clarifying Solution Acne Toner 3. Lipikar Body Lotion Daily Repair Moisturizing Cream And I take "Rae Start Probiotic" every morning before food.

I’ve been using this daily for about a week. I have not noticed any significant changes in my skin to date. However, it has helped reduce the size of pimples. If you have dry skin, I would recommend using a hydrating moisturizer after use.
