Honest reviews


Works, and lasts forever

Works and lasts forever when you use a cotton ball… My skin is so even, now!!!!! I couldn’t find anything else that was vegan, cruelty free, and worked! I’m addicted!

I bought this with the Alba Botanica Pineapple Enzyme cleanser, I used it a few times, nothing special. It’s sitting somewhere under the sink.

Have been using for about 2 years.

This toner is the most suitable for my skin. No matter what kind of irritation I have on the skin or just dryness, this toner soothes and softens the skin. I always need to have it. The smell is pleasant too.

Nice and calming but smells a bit strange

I definitely like this toner; it’s very calming after cleansing and I’ve also found that it’s really good for getting makeup residue off of your skin too – this is the only thing I would use to remove mascara residue from around my eyes, I don’t feel at all nervous about having it near my eyes. I don’t like the smell of it very much though, and I don’t like the packaging either; the bottle has leaked a couple of times and the smell is just…odd.

I found this at the store. Never tried Alba products before. My skin is a sensitive mess with redness and harsh dryness around the nose area, general redness and oily parts by the end of the day. Several toners, even alcohol free have dried my skin out and I’ve had to give them up. The Alba Sea Kelp Facial Toner has allowed me to use toner once again with no drying effects. It goes on with no strong smell, cleans up the oil and makeup, and hydrates your skin all night or day. Mostly, I just feel like cleaning my face with this alone because it’s great. I’ve had no breakouts and no harsh redness like I had with some other toners. This is excellent if your skin is terribly sensitive. I just wish the bottle came in condo size. Oh well, the price isn’t bad. I believe it was more expensive at the store, so sticking to buying it online might help you out with a few bucks.

So far, so good

I have very sensitive skin and have been battling redness and dryness for a while now. I use this toner twice a day as part of a skin routine and it seems to be helping. My skin doesn’t feel greasy after application or dry. The solution dries quickly so I can put my moisturizer on afterwards. It does have a light fragrance but its pleasant.

Not bad not good

I’ve been using this for a while it’s okay. I don’t feel like it does much for my skin but everyone’s skin is different.

Great price and product!

I’m a male, in my early 30s with combination, olive toned skin that isn’t sensitive or prone to breakout. Every other dermatologist says that there isn’t any need for toner BUT I highly recommend this one. I like the ingredients and the way it makes my skin feel–difficult to explain but it does have a slight numbing sensation that I find AWESOME! I was having a problem with product making my eyes red toward the end of the day. So, my derm said to cleanse and then use a toner as my only moisture during the summertime when I’m more oily. I’ve used so much product and this toner is my favorite! Note: some people talk about witch hazel being the cheapest and best toner. Witch hazel is not moisturizing and is similar to an astringent, which is drying. If you’re looking for something like that, try the Thayers with aloe/witch hazel.

Excellent Toner

I have not used a facial toner in years due to the products drying out my facial skin. I happened to see this product while looking for something else. Read the reviews, and purchased the items. My face feels clean and refreshed when using this brand, and I will purchase again. Also, the price is fair, especially for a good product.

A Must Have for Acne Sufferers!

I suffer from large cystic type acne since high school…so I know a thing or two about acne. After deciding that neither the acne nor the “teen hormone” will go away naturally in my 20s, I had to resort to creating a skin care regimen…a big UGH for someone as lazy as me. So I started using a mild benzoyl peroxide cleanser. ‘Twas OK…acne decreased after 3 months but post-acne redness still lingered around. Then a year later, I decided to add this Alba toner to my regimen (for reasons I can’t remember). I have sensitive acne-prone skin and I was very relieved it was gentle on my face. I run it around my face, jawline, and neck TWICE with 2 cotton balls every night…and boy can I see the dirt! You’d think the cleanser took care of that already! I have to say that using this toner made any acne I still get go away slightly faster. The redness has also dramatically decreased after 2 years of usage (though not completely gone, darn it). And the overall feel of my skin is smoother than with using BP alone. You do have to use moisturizer because toners generally dry out your skin, but I don’t mind because most skin care professionals recommend people to use facial moisturizers anyway.

Love Alba Botanica!

This product is fabulous, as are most Alba Botanica products. It’s gentle but effective. I will certainly be purchasing it again.
