      I tried this when I asked the representative at the Kiehl's counter for a "stronger" tonic because I wanted something that would give my face a more matte finish and tighten my pores. I have combination sensitive skin so I feel like i am always sacrificing one element for the other-a product that fights breakouts usually strips my skin and one that doesn't usually causes some whiteheads. I am so glad she recommended this as it is not "strong" in the sense of striping my face but has helped clear up my nose and small blemishes on my cheeks without drying. I love the way this makes my face feel. I generally use it at night and then I use the cucumber tonic during the day as I find it works better under foundation. I LOVE this tonic, I wish I had known about it years ago. Totally worth the price.

          This is the best product in my collection! This tonic noticeably minimizes pore size and rids of dirt in just a few days time. Its application is easy and the step by step instructions are wonderful, especially for newcomers. My skin feels tighter and clearer and I would hate to run out of this product ad not have it even for a day.

          I started using this toner to address my large pores -- and this product definitely did the trick! I got noticeable compliments on the suppleness of my skin and the tightness of my pores. I also noticed fewer small breakouts and acne. Clearer fresher skin all around. I think it also evened out my skin tone. This product did a lot of great things for me! One drawback: I feel like it dried my skin in dryness-prone areas

            I like the idea of this toner; however, I personally don't have oily enough skin to fully benefit from this toner. It's great if you are looking for that matte finish and to not feel dry after. You'll notice the clay pools to the bottom of this bottle, so you'll want to shake it up before you use it. Also, don't use a cotton pad to apply this toner, as the cotton pad will soak the clay particles up and be useless to your skin.

            I didn't think that my oily skin with very large pores could ever appear to be matte...until I tried this toner. I am using it with the facial wash and I am having amazing results. Despite being in my 40's, I never outgrew my oily skin. My makeup now goes on smoothly and I can go all day without shiny skin. Best of all, My pores no longer look like tiny swimming pools on my cheeks.

              Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Rare Earth Pore Refining Tonic:

              I sampled the Rare Earth Tonic on the back of my hand while trying to waste time at an airport. Much to my surprise, the patch on my hand where I had put it still felt different from the rest of my hand hours later. Matte, but not dry. I was impressed enough that I bought a bottle and I absolutely LOVE it. Along with the Rare Earth Cleanser it has helped to clear a ton of black heads out of the unfortunately large pores that I have on my face. It keeps the shine away all day long. It has only a light smell of alcohol to it. There's no burn or discomfort. As long as the bottle gets a good shake to mix the clay around, it's pretty hard to make it uneven. And it's great under make-up if you're into powders only - I don't know about cream foundations. I can't say thank you enough to Kiehl's for creating this incredible product!

              Not sure why people are saying it's alcohol-free

              Pros

                Cons

                • Haven't Seen A Difference
                • seems to be drying
                • very strong scent of alcohol

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Rare Earth Pore Refining Tonic:

                  I bought this toner hoping since the Rare Earth line has become a personal favorite & must-have in my routine. I'd had the Calendula Herbal Alcohol-Free toner first but didn't notice any difference. Upon first opening the bottle I immediately got an immediately strong whiff of alcohol (and yes, I'd shaken it up well). I don't know if the ingredients have changed since some of the other reviews saying it's alcohol-free but it clearly says on the ingredients label that the 2nd ingredient in this is denatured alcohol, which is a mixture of ethyl alcohol (ethanol) and additives (the denature process) that, among other things, intentionally creates the unusually strong scent of alcohol. If that is not enough of a deterrent, denatured alcohol is used as fuel for burners and stoves. I'm not completely opposed to alcohol in my toner but it's overpowering here & dries my skin. Disappointed since Rare Earth has so many other great products. Two unsuccessful toners so far. Becoming more and more convinced I don't need a toner, going to try the cucumber one next.

                  This product is amazing. I have somewhat oily skin that tends to break out in the summer (horrible humidity) & I have a few dry patches below my cheek bones. After a solid week of using this product, my dry patches are gone, my skin is not breaking out at all, my face feels so soft, my color is more radiant. I absolutely noticed a difference & use this every morning & night. Would highly recommend this to anyone!

                  I really like to use this with the matching facial cleanser and one of its best qualities is that it doesn't have alcohol. It's very soothing to the skin.

                      I've been fighting oily skin for long time, and this one was a saviour. I've been using it for 4 years now and it works great. I noticed that when I ran out of it and don't use it even for couple days, my skin gets oily again so I always make sure to stack up to make sure I have enough.
