Pros: Alcohol-free, gentle, great scent.
Cons: Doesn't help with oily skin.
Always on a quest for the perfect skin care product, I purchased this one in hopes of finding a good toner that removes excess makeup, oily residue left behind by my cleanser. Neutrogena is always a brand that I have trusted, and so I bought the Alcohol-Free Toner.
Usage & Toning: My Experience
Moisten cotton ball with Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner. Apply to face with gentle, upward strokes.
Purified Water, PEG-4, Butylene Glycol, Polysorbate 20, Ceteth-24,Choleth-24, Panthenol, Glycereth-26, Sodium PCA, Benzalkonium Chloride, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Chloride, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Fragrance.
I washed my skin as usual and applied the toner using a cotton pad. The toner was fresh-smelling and did not sting my sensitive skin at all upon application. The products claim that it's "gentle, non-stinging formula won't strip skin of it's natural moisturizers" seemed to be true. My skin felt soft, fresh. After a few minutes, though, there was a bit of a "sticky" residue left and the toner did not seem to help with oil control (although the product does NOT claim to help with this), and oil control is something I need.
Money & Looks
The 8.5oz bottle of toner sells for about $6.50 at most stores. The bottle is a classic baby-blue with a white cap for easy usage. Very simple, very nueutrogena-esque.
Would I use Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner??
I trust the Neutrogena line. Their products are high-quality and I haven't had any past problems with their products, and, in fact, have been quite satisfied. When it comes to the Alcohol-Free Toner, although it is not for my oily, sensitive skin type, it would probably work quite well for drier, sensitive skin types. The toner would also work well for jet-lag dryness that accompanies traveling. I have used this toner as a post-flight pick-me-up and it was quite refreshing. Although it doesn't fit into my personal care routine because I need more oil control, I believe that it may work well for other skin types.
