WOW! I bought this just to try it as a regular toner, I didn't really pay much attention to the Pore Refining part. BUT I can honestly say that it HAS shrunk the pores on my nose, which is insane. My pores were not craters (like some of my boyfriend's!) but they were definitely noticeable and had those weeeeeeee tiny blackheads in them that can't really be removed. Anyway you could definitely tell even under makeup. Now they are virtually nonexistent. What the h*ll! I was so surprised because nothing ever does what it says, right ladies?

Anyway the toner itself doesn't smell like h*ll and removes little bits of dirt that your cleanser leaves behind. The real purpose of a toner is to re-balance skin after washing. Some toners boast cleaning and blemish fighting as its main purpose. I dunno about this in balancing, because my skin is already pretty balanced, BUT I will say that it makes me skin SO SMOOOTH. It must be the glycolic acid exfoliating? Not sure but I love it. And I know it is this because finals week has just ended and I had no mental energy for toning and moisturizing so I didn't do anything but washing for like 4 days haha and these benefits went away. Hooray for this toner!

I find this just an average product. It doesn't do anything bad to my skin, nor does it do anything really great for my skin.

I do not find my pores smaller. I also do not find a decrease in blackheads nor clogged pores.

It has a very harsh alcohol smell. I have learned to hold my breath whenever I'm applying it, if not I'd choke on the smell. However, it leaves a very strong and perfumey scent when it dries, which I quite like because that means my face smells nice!

I recently had a break out of tiny pimples across my forehead (NOT blaming this product) but I was disappointed to see that this toner did nothing to prevent the break out in the first place!

If you're looking for a solution to problem skin, this might not be the answer. I rate it as a regular toner and not a toner to cure any type of problem skin.

      After use, it leaves a messy feeling, it's the opposit feeling you want after washing your face.
      Irritate my skin into dry, red and itch.

        Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner, Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Formula, 8.5 fl oz:

        The only thing wrong with this product is that it's mis-marketed. I've used this for years & am grateful I can still buy it online. I think of it as a well kept secret. The combination of ingredients is ideal and very simple. It contains active ingredients you'll find in more modern, way more expensive products as anti-agers and skin improvement aids. Wash your face, then swipe this over it on a cotton pad and see what it picks up that your cleanser left behind! Use daily & your skin will look beautiful!

              Seems to be making a big difference in my complexion and I'm breaking out less. If you think your face is clean, use this & see how wrong you are. It removes the traces of muck that get left behind. Overall a very good product that I'm reordering today.

                  I bought this on a whim thinking it would be nice to try out a new toner. The reviews were all pretty much positive so I decided to give it a shot. The first day I used it, I washed my face as normal then proceeded to use this product after. Then I put on my makeup as usual, and I noticed my skin was super super oily and no matter how much powder I caked onto my face, the oil was not going away. I used my normal everyday makeup products as well. I then retraced my steps to find out why my skin was so oily, and I came to the conclusion this product was at fault. I then remembered I heard nothing of this being oil free. I do not have the worst oily skin, more combination of oily and dry but not severe. Just to warn some of you guys with oily skin, this may not be for you.

                      This is strong but it does work, I wouldn't recommend using it with any other potentially irritating products. I had to change cleansers to one that was more gentle on my skin in order to keep using this but it has really made a difference. I'm not sure if my pores are actually smaller or just look this way because they're clean and not blackheads but either way I'm pleased.

                        I have been "blessed" with combination skin, so finding a toner that addresses clogged pores without giving you the feeling of a chemical burn is awesome. I've tried other toners (some of which did a pretty decent job) but this one is my favorite so far. It doesn't work miracles, but I'm on my third bottle and have given a bottle each to my two daughters. On a recent church retreat, I let a young girl (twenty-something) borrow some, and she was blown away at how it worked without aggravating her very sensitive combo skin. Love this toner!

                            I really liked this toner. With just one bottle and regular use, I have seen a difference in the clarity of my skin, with less breakouts and more smoothness. I will buy this again and continue to use.
