Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol Free Toner Review


Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Toner comes in a beautiful bottle that has a dispensing flip top cap. You get all important information printed on it. The bottle is quite light weight and totally safe to carry out in your bag. 

The toner has no fragrance and is of yellow gold in color. It contains real Calendula flowers; makes you really feel that you’re getting the real benefits of this precious flower. The Calendula petals in this product were inserted in the bottle by hand to ensure freshness and maintain efficacy. You can see those petals floating in that beautiful amber gold liquid.

I use it after cleansing my face with a cleanser. I put some on a cotton wool and then apply on the face, especially on the areas where I need it more, like around the area of the nose. I have been using it all the summer/monsoon and I found it great to my skin.

Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol Free Toner Review

The formula is super gentle; no sting, irritation, or itch. It tones my skin effectively and removes the last traces of dirt and impurities. It is also effective in minimizing the pores. The best aspect of this toner is that it never makes my skin dry. 

This toner claims to be suitable for normal to sensitive skin but after using it I can say that  it works great on dry skin too. My skin is normal/dry and I never feel any dry effect after applying this toner, In fact, I feel my skin gets hydrated. 

I’m using it continuously when the season has become a bit dry and cold. Though the product is working perfectly even in this season but I need a good moisturizer to hydrate it well.
