      I've used this product as a toner and cleanser for my skin for years. I have combination normal/oily skin and I remember when I first purchased this product at Kiehl's the sales person said that it may be too harsh to use regularly. I'm happy to say that they were mistaken. I use this blue stuff after washing my face both morning and night. My pores are clean and tight! It really does cleanse well without drying out the skin. My face is never oily anymore. This is one of my favorite Kiehl's products.

      This is a love it or hate it product. It has a very pleasant scent and texture. Love the colour as well. My skin feels cool (very minty) when i first put it on. It does what it promises but the con is that this lotion is extremely drying! uncomfortably drying! I have super oily skin, this lotion is by far the only product that controls the oil but it dries my skin like heck as well!.

      The best product for oily skin

      By 

      from FLORIDA

      Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion:

      I had experienced with oily face and acne for a long time . This is reason why I feel so uncomfortable with other product, always ineffective. When my friend recommend this product to me, I was kind of doubt while taking a chance to try it. The result of trying this product has been satisfied with my expectation. This is the best product for OIL-FREE EVER.

      Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion:

      I love this stuff for clearing up acne. Only use it on spots as opposed to the whole face because I don't want to dry my skin completely out. Suggest using a moisturizer afterward.

      Blue Astringent Herbal (Spot Treatment Alternative) Toner

      By 

      from Portland, OR

      Pros

      • cost efficient
      • very effective

      Cons

      • should be relabed

      Best Uses

        Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion:

        I can only suggest to use this product as a spot treatment only. Put a little bit on a cotton pad and use on acne spots. This product has a lot of Alcohol in it and more than likely will dry out your face. So for the love of all that is holy, use a moisturizer afterwords. You may ask, why not just use a spot treatment specifically labeled as a spot treatment? Some people may notice that their products that worked before don't work anymore - Their skin is probably becoming immune to it. This Astringent becomes a great alternative! Also, don't be fooled by the word "lotion" in the name. Just a play on words as most toners in other countries are called Lotions.

        Cooling, and clearing

        By 

        from Miami, FL

        Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion:

        When you initially put this on your skin, it feels cooling and refreshing. I would suggest you only put it on the areas that are troublesome, instead of your whole face. It can be over drying which caused my skin to overproduce oil I think. But I will continue to use it as a spot treatment instead of all over.

        Way Too Strong

        By 

        from Boston, MA

        Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion:

        Let it first be said that I do not have acne-prone skin, though I have battled oily skin my entire life. Oddly enough, this product seemed to stimulate my oil production. It has a stripping effect on the skin, and while this can be useful to aid in the clearing of a blemish or to cut down on ingrown hairs, the Blue Herbal Spot Treatment is a better option. I figured that this product would be a miracle for my oily skin, so it was a disappointment to find that it actually seemed to make me oilier. And for the money, honestly, a drugstore astringent has the same effect for half the price.

        Mattifying But Not Good With All Moisturizers

        By 

        from Korea

        Pros

        • Mattifying
        • Smooth feeling

        Cons

        • balls up with different moisturizers

        Best Uses

          Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion:

          I decided to try this out based on the reviews I had read. I have extremely oily skin and am prone to cystic pimples. It has definitely controlled the acne because I haven't really gotten any significant deep pimples since using this. It has a really good texture and cool feeling when applied. My skin instantly feels soft. However, it has been hit or miss with different moisturizers I use on top of it. Like other reviewers mentioned, it does ball up. It works fine with the Herbal Blue Moisturizer but when I've used it under the Ultra Oil free Gel Cream, it balls up. I also like to mix my BB cream with moisturizer but when I apply it after this toner, I really have to rub it in well in order for it to not be streaky. But Once it is all rubbed in, it looks fine. Using it with a regular moisturizer then powder foundation is fine. I will just use this at night until I run out and probably just use a different Kiehl's toner.

          Best Purchase I Have Ever Made

          By

            Best Uses

              Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion:

              I have always had good skin, except for my chin! Every month I have a painful breakout on my chin. I have been to dermatologists and have tried everything! Now in my mid-twenties I thought the breakouts would have finally stopped and they hadn't. I wandered into Kiehls on a whim with a friend as I was passing by it in the mall and figured "Why not?". I spoke with the sales girl who was so sweet! She spent so much time with me and recommended this product. I am happy to say I have not had a single pimple on my chin for 6 months now! I use this product only on my chin, twice a day. My skin is not over dried and is perfectly clear. Kiehls is now my go-to place for skin care products.

              Swear by this astringent!

              Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion:

              Love this product since I discovered it 17 years ago. I have very oily skin and when I get lazy from my routine from this I definitely breakout. Blue Herbal has always cleared it up easily. I have tried drugstore bought astringent to try to save money and never got the same result as I do from this product.

                  Not sure why this is called a lotion. Results were just like an expensive Sea Breeze. Worked ok but not worth the price.

                    Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion:

                    I got this about a week ago, and its really nice my skin is looking good! It is a bit strong, as in drying so i just ordered the Calendula herbal extract toner. but I'll still use the blue stuff for when i need a good deep cleaning. It leaves my skin feeling a little tight so i recommend following with a moisturizer. It does contain alcohol so i won't use it everyday, but it really do like it. I recommend it to people with really oily skin like me. Has a bit of cooling menthol sensation so you really feel like you're getting your pore deep cleaned!
