What the brand says: This effective toner is formulated with select herbal extracts to gently cleanse and soothe normal to oily skin types without the use of alcohol or harsh synthetic drying agents. The Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner may be used to soothe and improve problem areas.

KIEHL'S CALENDULA HERBAL EXTRACT ALCOHOL-FREE TONER REVIEWPackaging: The toner comes in an amber plastic bottle with flip-open leak-proof cap. The packaging is travel friendly.

Texture: The texture of toner is just like water- non sticky and just watery. It contains calendula flower petals steeped in it.

Fragrance: The toner smells a bit floral but not exactly sweet. I am glad it does not smell of alcohol like most of the toners as it is alcohol-free.

How I use and staying power: To use, take some product on a cotton pad and wipe your face with it, avoiding area around the eyes. Let it dry completely and follow with your regular CTM routine.

I always wanted to try out this toner from Kiehl’s since alcohol toners never really work for me and only made my skin dry and bumpy. I had received a sample of this toner and totally loved it since it made my skin look healthy and prevented acne with just few uses. I had to order this toner and did it along with Kiehl’s calendula face wash. Trust me, the combination works amazing especially if you have uneven textured skin due to acne and have oily skin. I have used a million skincare products but this is the best I have ever used. the toner made my skin’s texture even (still improving!), I have no acne past 1 month, skin feels less oily and I wake up to soft and smooth skin since I also use it before bedtime. I have been struggling with hormonal acne since a year and this product (along with face wash from the same brand/range) has improved my skin drastically! It is expensive but I feel its totally worth it. It removes all the dirt from your face thoroughly and provides your skin with all the essential ingredients and nutrients that keep’s it healthy and clear.

  1. I started using Calendula toner for a couple of months now & I love it.
    By the way, what to do with the petals when the toner is finish?
    Thx ?

  2. Hi, I would like to ask except for using the cleanser and toner, what other products that you match with ?
    I’ve been suffering from hormonal acne skin for very long time. I’ve tried various brands of products but can’t cure my acne skin.
    Besides, what cleanser that you used with the calendula toner?
