I've used up two Paula's Choice products so far, so it's safe to say I definitely like this brand. PC is mostly known for the Skin Perfecting Fluid (which I will review soon, although I'm not particularly taken with that product).
I liked this toner for the winter when my skin is drier. It has a thicker consistency as described compared to typical toners, and you're supposed to shake it before use. It was not a miracle product but it's definitely one of the better toners I've used. It's great if you have sensitive skin or if your skin's reacting to something.

I think PC products really do work, and they're pretty reasonably priced if you compare them to high end skin care products. I've been trying our her anti-aging moisturizers after using up the Skin Recovery moisturizer (review soon). The most I've taken away from Paula's reviews is that jar moisturizers are not ideal, for sanitary reasons but also because the antioxidants become less effective with exposure to air.

$21 for 6.4 oz (190ml)
This is quite a big bottle, but I guess some drugstore toners are 8 oz

Would I recommend it?

Would I repurchase?
Maybe! I'm trying out their anti-aging toner right now and the Peter Thomas Roth Hello Kitty balancing toner from Asia.
