What I say..
I have been using this since 4 months now. & A few more uses out of this & it will be empty.
this toner comes in the patent The Body Shop bottle. It smells exactly like the Tea Tree oil but a little less strong. It is a light green color toner & there is some product that stays on the bottom of the bottle so you have to shake it up & then pour some on a cotton pad/ ball.

I was liking it in the beginning. It deep clean my skin, makes it feel refreshed. I was amazed to see how much make up & dirt was still on my face after washing the face.
When used for the 1st time I had a burning sensation on my whole face especially near the nose where i always have dry & sensitive skin. It also makes my face hot.. literally. & also when I apply the moisturizer it stays hot for few more seconds. I had read after using it 2 -3 times it doesn't burns.. but mine still burns & tingles. It helped to remove the acne till a certain extent. Makes skin feel refreshed & tight, because of Alcohol!( I recently discovered) But it does not helps to clear the blemishes.
There is alot of product that they give & now my skin has become immune to it. I thought that it will become my HG toner but it dint work on me that well. Its is a good product over all but not a miracle product.

  • cleans well
  • helps to clear acne till a certain extent
  • refreshes the skin
  • keeps me matte for 2-3 hours
  • will last for a very long time
  • shelf life of 3 years
  • burns & irritates my skin
  • the smell may irritate some
  • expensive
  • not suitable for sensitive/dry skin
  • doesn't helps to fade blemishes
  • Doesn't prevents future break outs
Verdict: This is a hit or a miss product for some. They should come up a smaller size packaging too so that everyone may give it a try. I had thought this may work wonders for me! but it turned out Im not liking it so much!

Do let me know if you have tried this or liked it? & toner suggestions for oily/ acne prone skin required!!!
Hope this review helped you!
