        I love this tonic. I mean, if I could marry it, I totally would. I have weird skin. It dries out after cleansing, no matter what kind of face wash I use. My skin even dries out from just getting it wet. So, I've never gotten along with a tonic before - they always seem to exacerbate the problem. The obnoxious thing, then, is that half way through the day, my skin becomes really oily - no matter how much or how little moisturizer I put on. But knowing Origins products, and after reading the description and reviews of this product, I decided to give it a try.

        SO glad I did! This is now my FAVORITE Origins product. No joke. So, I wash my face, it starts to do its transformation into the Sahara, but then I sweep this stuff on (it smells fabulous!). Instantly, the tightness is gone. My skin is relaxed, soft, smooth, ready to absorb my serum and lotion. I never write reviews. I mean never (look how long this thing is already). But this stuff is so great, I decided Origins definitely needed kudos for it. Also, I'm hoping others with dry/combination skin weirdness will try it. You'll be glad you did.

        This tonic seems primarily designed for users who need an additional cleansing step in their daily skin routine. Unlike most of Origins' other tonics and liquid lotions (Zero Oil perhaps excepted), this one claims to remove dead skin and dirt as well as balance and condition the skin before moisturizing. And you can tell. The "tingling" that the product description notes can be abrasively stinging after any kind of exfoliation or cleansing with a scrub brush. And if like me—someone with naturally oily skin—your routine ALREADY consists of oil-reducing products and steps, the United States tonic can overly dry out skin, causing it to over-produce oil to compensate. That said, for folks with less elaborate skincare routines (i.e., those that don't already include a step to remove dead skin) or more truly combination skin, this is a solid choice. For those looking for a conditioning lotion, I'd keep looking.

        It's also worth noting that this tonic has a strange and (to me) slightly unpleasant smell. Several other reviewers have described it as smelling like rubbing alcohol. It is pungent, though it only lasts as long as it takes to apply.

        United State, welcome to my permanent skin care regimen!

        from Asheville, NC

        Comments about Origins United State™ Balancing Tonic:

        I have combination/oily skin with pores larger than I care to admit. Since adding United State to my regimen last month, I can say that my pores appear smaller and my T-Zone is less oily and shiny by mid-afternoon (when my makeup usually melts off). Thanks for a great product! I will be telling my family and friends.

        Comments about Origins United State™ Balancing Tonic:

        It's been a decade long battle to find the right skincare. I have acne around my mouth. No where else, and an oily T-zone. It's been so difficult to find the right regimen and balance. This has been amazing. I've only been using it about a week and I have noticed such a huge difference. I'm also using 4 other origins products with it. So very happy with the results of these products so far!

        I love this more than my longstanding Clinique toner. If only it was a little cheaper.

        Comments about Origins United State™ Balancing Tonic:

        I had a nice chat with a online rep and she recommended this as a toner for my 13 year old daughter. She had previously been using the Dr. Weil Soothing Treatment lotion (along with the rest of line) with minimal outbreaks, redness, or irritation. With in several days of using this product we had major breakouts that were flakey, angry, and red. After using Dr. Weil for a week again she's back to normal.

        A Difference

        By 

        from Lockport, NY

        Comments about Origins United State™ Balancing Tonic:

        I usually use Otigins Perfect World toner, however was given Origins United State toner as a gift. I really like the scent and smooth, refreshing feel when first applied. I kid you not, I have been getting compliments for the entire week that I have used it asking what I have done different. I only use face wash, toner and lotions (all origins) eyebrow pencil and lipstick, no other makeup (including foundation) is applied. They said my face looked more youthful, so balanced and healthy. I see these people often and this is the first time they have complimented this change! The changes I personally have noticed is that my skin feels more clean, moisturized and softer than usual. I really like this toner! It's a keeper!

        I don't know what's happening to my skin!

        Comments about Origins United State™ Balancing Tonic:

        I have been using origins products for about a year now (face was, exfoliating wash, and cream). I previously used the Dr. Weils Toner and it worked magic on my skin but to save money i decided to switch to this toner. After about a week or two of use I've started getting red bumps all over my face, especially the left side which now has 12 bumps that look like they could be pimples and extremely clogged/irritated pores. I'm 23 and this is my first breakout ever!! Has this happened to anyone else after using this product?!

        This balancing toner is very strong in the smell. I feel like there is alcohol there. I do not like this product at all.

        Irritated my skin, caused redness and itchy bumps

        By 

        from Waterloo, ON

        Comments about Origins United State™ Balancing Tonic:

        I used this in the morning and at night; I was looking for a new toner and this seemed perfect because I have dry/sensitive skin. However, it really did not sit well with my skin, I'm not sure what ingredient in it is causing my skin to breakout in red, itchy bumps, but I was really disappointed with this product, especially considering how expensive it is..would not repurchase sadly.
