    I have sensitive skin and this gently clears my bumps and spots. I swipe it on with a cotton square on my spots and they go away over night. Love this!

  2. Great toner!

    This toner smells AMAZING! Not drying - use after "Chill Out" cleanser, and follow with "Don't Flake" moisturizer.

    I love how refreshing this toner feels on my face. It's one of the few toners that hasn't irritated my face. Going to keep using this product to see how much it will improve my skin.

    My acne has always been very tough to manage but its been so much easier to deal with now and started this trial with 30+ on my face now after using it for a month I have maybe 10 max and Im super happy and excited to see what the progress is in another month!

  7. Amazing acne cleanser

    I loved this product. The first couple of times using it it had a warm burning feeling but felt refreshing from cleaning my acne. I now use it atleast twice a day. I will definitely finish this product until it's gone I love it!

  8. Happy tester

    This product was very good! It helped with instant breakouts and oil control also provided a cool refreshing feeling! While it didn't get rid of acne right on the spot it did go away over night!

  9. Definitely Worth Your Time
    Posted by Emma on 2nd Jan 2019

    I was pleasantly surprised with this C&C product. In the past their products have been harsh and drying, but with this one, I found that if I used it every other day along with a moisturizer, it reduced the amount of breakouts. It seemed to prevent them as well! I would definitely suggest this product to a friend in need of this type of toner while they're on a budget. It is a great value, but definitely nothing like the high-end toners available on the market.

    After a day using this product I saw and felt a difference. My skin is super smooth and just visibly looks brighter. (used 3 times today) only downside is that the peppermint smell is a bit much for me.
