I use this in summer when temps are over 95 F degrees, but also use it throughout the year anytime my skin barrier needs a little help. It smells a bit medicinal but then dissipates quickly; the feel can be a little sticky depending on ambient humidity, and it makes my skin look smooth without being greasy. I first bought this as a travel size in a kit of a handful of Real Barrier products and wish they would bring the travel/sample kit back.
I think this is a fabulous toner, in general. Whether you want to repair or simply maintain your skin's balance, this toner will aid in that effort. It is unmedicated (e.g., no actives like BHA's, AHA's, or high percentages of antioxidants vitamin C). You can use it in virtually any skincare routine, day and night, as it will pair well with other humectants and emollients. It is cooling and soothing. And you get a generous amount of product in this bottle.
I use this toner in the am. It works well for my sensitive, prone to rosacea skin without irritating it. I use it together with the essence and cream from the same brand. The toner preps the skin for all other skincare steps. It doesn't have any smell that is a big plus for sensitive skin.
This is perfect for anyone with sensitive skin, it offers deep hydration in addition to being lightly moisturizing. I use it by layering several times straight after cleansing and I find the benefits include, calming irritation, reducing redness and strengthening my skin barrier. Love this brand in general and this product did not disappoint
It is not very moisturizing since the consistency is very watery. I won’t be buying more, I prefer more moisturizing toners. But overall working good
Real Barrier very good brad . Using it for a few years , never dissapointed
Really like this toner. Light, calming and doesn’t dry out the skin. Really good. Will he repurchasing it for sure!
Very good for sensitive skin. This tool turned out to restore the skin after irritation
Nice smell, non-sticky and very light, works even on oily skin in winter very well.
