Today’s review is on Kiehl’s cucumber herbal alcohol-free toner. Toner is a very important step of our skincare routine. I have problematic skin. I am always searching for a toner that can help improve my skin texture and keeps a balance. Kiehl’s is one of the brands that are very generous when it comes to giving samples. I got this product as a compliment on my purchase at kiehl’s. Read on to see how it works.

My Experience with Kiehl’s Cucumber Herbal Alcohol-Free Toner
As I said, I got it as a deluxe sample. I love complimentary products. I was very excited to try it as it says Cucumber herbal alcohol free toner. I have used the TBS for a long time (Tea Tree range). I love that toner but when it got over I started using Kiehl’s cucumber herbal alcohol toner. It has been almost 3 weeks and I still have product for another week.
The packaging of this product is great. It has a flip flop cap. It is a transparent bottle. It is Easy to carry without the fear of spilling it. It is a 40 ml bottle.
It doesn’t smell anything like a cucumber. But it smells quite strong of a usual toner but little organic. It is a green color toner. I put it twice on the cotton pad and it covers my face. I use it twice daily. It does shrink my pores. It does give a clean feel and soothes my skin. But I feel something is missing in this toner. I like the tingling feel of the toner on my face but this doesn’t do that. Maybe because it is alcohol free. I think it leaves some residue after use that I hate. Somehow I don’t get that perfect clean feeling with this toner. I am happy that I did not buy the full size and it is great I tried it first as sample. The only feel good factor would be, it alcohol free and has some herbal extract that naturally soothes skin.

Would I be purchasing Kiehl’s Cucumber Herbal Alcohol Free Toner?
No, maybe it is not for me!
Overall, this is a great product for toning the face after wash. I feel it leaves a little residue after use. I would still recommend this to people with dry & sensitive skin as it could be very comforting to those.
