Honest reviews


I actually like the bottle design

Like most reviewers, I agree that the toner itself is great.I mostly just wanted to talk about the bottle design. I was really afraid to buy this because so many reviewers said the opening made the product hard to use but nobody wrote about how the opening actually looked. Once you screw the cap off, it basically just looks like the opening of a water/soda bottle. Maybe other people were looking for more of a small opening that you have to shake/squeeze the bottle to get product onto the cotton.However, this was exactly what I was looking for. It makes it so easy to just hold a cotton pad (I use cotton pads, not balls) at the opening and quickly flip down and back up once or twice. So hopefully, this helps for anyone who was concerned about what the opening actually looked like.

Good product

MY skin is always so dry. I used to use Pond’s Toner before when I was in Asia as it’s not so expensive there and really effective on my skin. But since I moved to USA, I changed to this L’Oreal toner. It’s about as effective as the Pond’s one and less expensive here.I bought first one from Walgreens, it’s good, just not so fragrant as the Pond’s one. And I decided to order another one on Amazon as Amazon’s price is about $1 less than Walgreen or other stores, and I got it for free shipping as my order is over $25. However, once you used that super saver shipping method, it also mean you accept super slow order confirmation and delivering too.Anyway, this is a good toner for the price

I have very sensitive skin. Many toners irritate or burn my skin. This doesn’t! Good toner without having to spend much either.

Burns my eyes!!!

I have used ‘Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner, 8.5 Ounce’ for years, and just wanted to get something new for a try. I have also used astringent toner which has a lot alcohol, but neither burned my eyes. This does however, very bad. My mum told me the same. Did it not happen to all the positive reviewers?? This toner is horrible!!! Also since the opening area is very wide, it is hard to use an appropriate small amount each time and easy to spill a lot all the time.

Alcohol alcohol

This product is misleading. It says alcohol free yet alcohol is listed in the ingredients. I put it in the rubbish.

Sophie Ben Franklin, TX

Meh, I don’t see what is so special about this.

It’s an ok toner. But it didn’t really transform my skin. And I even feel it is a bit pricey for what it does.

Amie Winfred, SD

good toner

I’ve spent way more money on toners that didn’t work nearly as well. This is a classic standby. I highly recommend it, clears dirt and oil and keeps your skin fresh and tones pores.

Light, Fresh Toner

This is one of the best toners I’ve tried (and I’ve tried many) it’s light and has a lovely scent that lasts on the skin. It removes that last traces of my make-up, leaving skin clean, toned and refreshed. It also helps to refine the look of my skin, leaving it hydrated and clear.

L’Oreal Paris Toner

I usually love L’Oreal Paris products and I use them often. This toner is OK, nothing special about it. The price was right, so I guess 3 stars is a good review.

Kristen Galliano, LA

I like it.

It does the job of taking off the residue left behind by the cleanser or makeup. I don’t know why if I use it close to my eyes, it’s stings very badly and my eyes become watery afterwards.

Rochelle Mc Cune, KS

it’s amazing……..

This product is really works and make my skin more younger and smooth.I use everyday,now I don’t want face cream may often. Thanks Amazon introducing this product.

Jaime Felt, OK

Smells nice and feel all tingly.

This lasts forever and I would highly recommend it. My skin feels so clean and fresh after using and it dries quickly.

Crystal Truro, MA

Absolutely the best

This is my favorite toner. It leave you feeling moisturized instead of dried out. Most toners – even gentle ones have a lot of alcohol in them. This one has minimum. Literally 1%. I also love that it has Beta Hydroxy. It cleanses the skin of old dry bits, and makes you look great. This really helps if you are going sans makeup.I use this daily. When I can’t find this in store I usually use Neutrogena, but it isn’t 1/2 as good as this one. L’Oreal even has a better, cleaner fragrance then the alcohol free Neutrogena.

Hello soft smooth skin

Get ready for a brand new skin, with this toner. It cleans your face, it leaves it soft and fresh and it is affordable. I have been using this for years and I love it. It is very gentle and does not burn like other toners, it is worth trying.

Madelyn Markleton, PA

Hydrafresh ready

The only toner I use. This product once belonged to the Nivea Facial products line, but once Nivea abandoned the facial product line, Loreal picked this up. YEAH!. I was so nervous it would be discontinued like every other product I grow to love.Anyways this toner is great. Doesn’t dry your skin at all, and really feels like it is exfoliating your skin with the alptha hydroxy vitamins. Great to use in the morning to prep your skin for moisturizer. The smell is lovely too, plus I am sucker for the pink color.

Kari Duplessis, LA

My fav…

This is one of the best toners that I’ve tried. There’s no odd smell and I don’t break out or get dry skin. I have very sensitive skin but this toner makes my face feel really nice. I’ve also caught my boyfriend using my toner! I used it on him once during the night when he had really dry skin and he said his face was smooth throughout work the following day. He doesn’t like my other toners because they "smell" according to him.

L’Oreal Toner

L’Oreal Dermo-Expertise Hydrafresh Toner is a good product. It does what it says it does. It cleans your skin and makes it feel fresh. I would recommend it for anyone to use.

I love this toner i have purchased it before from Amazon I love that it is alcohol free since i do have sensative skiface feelssilky ater use great buy

Marilyn Burlington Junction, MO

Really good product and a super great price

I’ve used Neutrogena oil eliminating astringent for the longest time and it sort of burns. With this stuff, it’s like putting water on your face compared to the Neutrogena. It’s very mild, actually rather soothing. Nowhere near as good as something like LANCME Tonique Toner which is my absolute favorite but hey, they are made by the same company so I don’t believe this one is bad at all especially for the price!!

Roslyn Roswell, GA


I just bought this from Walmart today. I think I like it, it smells good and leaves skin feeling hydrated. If you like ponds facial cleansing wipes than you will like this. It smells just like it and leaves my skin soft and moisturized after using it.

Susanna Smithwick, SD

Excellent toner

I’ve been using this toner for many years and it’s been getting more and more difficult to find in local stores. I switch from time to time if I see a new product on the market or feel like a change, but this is one of my favorites. My skin feels clean and smooth after I apply it and add moisturizer. It doesn’t dry my skin at all, although I feel a slight tingle after applying with a cotton pad. I do not recommend cotton balls, since they’re wasteful in my opinion. A cotton “round” or “square” uses less product and will clean your face better. I use a facial cleanser every night before bedtime, but this toner removes any residue left on my face and any impurities from the tap water.

Trisha Hope, ME

Very good Toner

It does its job I like the fragrance of it…! I was looking for alcohol free toner so tried this first time and I absolutely love this!

Harriet Alger, OH

Hydrates and Cleans!

This is my 3rd or 4th bottle of L’Oreal Paris HydraFresh Toner. I use wet cleansing towels to take my make-up off and use 2 cotton pads with HydraFresh Toner to finish cleaning my face. I clean my face until there isn’t any more make-up showing on any of the cotton pads, then apply my hydrating cream. This has been my routine for years and it works for me. Hope this helps those of you who might want to try the L’Oreal Paris HydraFresh Toner.

This toner keeps my skin feeling pretty good after I clean my face

This toner keeps my skin feeling pretty good after I clean my face. My daughter uses it too and she is pleased with it.

Lottie White, PA


Too strong for my skin(combo, a little sensitive )this is actually my second bottle. I dont use it on my face ,instead i use it on my body, made my skin very soft.I used to use it on my face but i had this burning sensation and my face was red so i stopped.

Francine Craig, CO


I like the product. It is indeed refreshing every time I use it. I will be happy to order again

Hillary Gatesville, TX

Great after facial wash

I gave this 4 stars because I don’t really like the bottle design. It is difficult to control the amount of toner you want to apply to a cotton ball. But the product itself I would give 4.5, just because it isn’t a miracle product on its own. Let me elaborate:I use this after washing with theAlpha Hydrox Foaming Face Wash – 6 fl oz. It feels refreshing and keeps the skin supple and moist. I have acne prone skin so I need to apply theProactiv Solution Original Repairing Lotion 2 ozafter washing, followed by theProactiv Solution Green Tea Moisture 1 Oz. I find this regimen to be best for my skin. But I digress, if you require a refresh during the day this toner is perfect, alcohol free (so won’t dry out your skin).
