Gentle daily exfoliator
Skin Type: normal Skin
Skin Concerns: Rosacea, Anti-Aging (Fine lines & Wrinkles), Blackheads, Large Pores, Sensitive Skin, Dehydrated Skin, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

I would recommend this product if you want to start using acids to exfoliate your skin but you haven't used this kind of products before, so AHA or BHA in high concentration might be bad for you. I use this product every single day, morning and night routine, I apply it with a cotton pad or with my hands (sometimes I feel cotton pads absorb most of the product) after washing my face, I've been using this for over 2 months and there's 3/4 of the bottle left (very nice price-quantity relation).
So far this is what I think happened to my skin:
1. Most of my nose blackheads have cleared off
2. My enlarged pores are progressively shrinking
3. I don't get whiteheads as often as I did before
4. Even skin tone
5. Softer skin

I would not recommend this toner as a hydrating toner in case your skin is going through a dry season, we're in autumn right now so my skin is dehydrating more than usual, that's why I'm using this toner to exfoliate and then a second one just to hydrate.

Good product.
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Blackheads, Large Pores, Sensitive Skin, Dehydrated Skin, Uneven Skin Tone, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

It's a good exfoliating toner, which can be use everyday.

Pros
1. Gentle & mild exfoliator, can be used everyday but would not recommend.
2. Comes in a spray bottle, easy application.
3. Very affordable.
4. Suitable with people who has dry, normal & sensitive skin.

Cons
1. Doesn't do much (for me), didn't see any differences.
2. Has a slightly weird scent, (because when you spray it directly to your face, you might be able to smell it) but nothing major, it goes away pretty fast.
3. Won't work someone who has cystic acne type, because it does nothing for mine.

Great for dry and sensitive skin!

In my experience with toners, I have found that most of them either end up drying my already parched dry skin or agitate my sensitive skin. This toner leaves my skin feeling moisturised and doesn't cause any irritation. It's also extremely easy to use as I usually tended to over-soak my cotton pad with the toners that come with a screw-cap causing a lot of product to waste but 2-3 spray of this on my cotton-pad and I'm done. Easy peas'y.
