My experience
This is the first time am using alcohol free toner!! I used it after I cleaned my face with a cleansing milk. I took a little amount of toner and dabbed all over my face. The toner is transparent in colour with a strong smell of green tea and added fragrances.
The toner comes with a press button cap and dispenses a little extra toner if the bottle is tilted more. My skin felt instantly fresh after the use and experienced a little tingling sensation. This may be become of tightening of the pores. The fragrance is the only thing which I didn't like about the toner. It's a little strong and lingered for around one and half hour after use. Other than this I find the product very very great.

Overall thoughts
