I love this astringent! I have combination skin that is prone to breaking out and this does not dry my skin out at all. I have been using it for a few weeks now and have noticed such a huge improvement in my skin.

Special Cucumber Lotion
Absolutely love this product! It is so gentle on my skin, yet keeps acne from popping up. I use this twice a day with my cleanser, moisturizer, and drying lotion at night. Definitely recommend to those looking for a simple toner/lotion like product. AMAZING!

I had been having a lot of problems with adult acne prior to using this product and was considering visiting a dermatologist when I started using this product. It has worked like a miracle on my face - I have had no breakouts whatsover since trying this product. It is very gentle on my skin,causing no drying at all. I highly recommend it.

Great to keep bacteria from face!
Since my last purchases of MB my skin has never been clearer. The cucumber lotion is great addition to keeping my face clear.It does not dry out my skin at all! I use it am and pm before i put anything else on. I also have the silver powder, cucumber tonic mask and seaweed night cream in addition and I love them all!

When my skin is not too oily, not too dry
This is my everyday toner. When I find that my skin is acting appropriately, I use this toner. It is light, cleans my pores very well, and I simply love it! I use it after the Enzyme cleanser, and my skin feels fabulous! It is the perfect toner for the Combination skin!! One of the three toners that I use depending upon how my skin is acting that day! And my FAVORITE!!!

Calm and Refreshig
I have to agree with the other reviews this toner is very gentle and doesn't burn. Plus it doesn't leave your skin dry and irritated. A must have to any skin care regime.

Great Toner It Doesn't Burn!
I have sensetive, oily, cystic acne prone skin. This toner is a must have if you have similar skin problems. Like another reviwer stated, all other toners have burned and dried out my skin. The Special Cucumber Lotion is PERFECT! It's mild and controls the oil throughout the day instead of drying out my face. I really cannot go without this toner.

I have never been a fan of toners, I find that they make your skin dry and burn. I was hesitant but decided to try one from Mario Badescu when I ordered other products. This is a wonderful toner that doesn't strip your skin. I have only been using it for two weeks and already my skin has shown noticible improvment in tone and texture.

Special Cucumber Lotion
This toner is awesome:) The scent reminds me of baby powder and makes the skin feel refreshed and moisturized. It is by far my favourite of all the samples I received. I'm not usually one for using toners but this is one product I plan to include within my daily skin care regimen!
Ps. thank you for your generosity in providing a consultation along with "try before you buy" samples to consumers. I'm so glad I took the time to fill out the questionnaire.

I love this stuff
I received it as a sample and love the way it smells. I use it every day and it just doesn't overdry my face but I can tell its cleaner. I don't ever wear makeup (I naturally just don't need to) and I have a small travel bottle I carry around for when Im feeling "a little oily". It works great with the "Swisspers" cotton rounds too; you can't buy just any cause those will leave lint on your face..lol

Last year, I started developing some major cystic acne along my forehead. I used this product diligently and I was clear of ALL breakouts for 3 months straight. I figured my skin problems were just a "phase" and stopped using it. Boy, did I learn my lesson. My skin problems returned, and I immediately returned to using this product. With the conjunction of this and the buffering lotion at night, my skin is smooth and clear again. Definately a keeper that keeps skin clear!

i've never used such a good toner before.

I have used the Special Cucumber Lotion for several years and I KNOW there is no better! My son just turned 13yo and it has made a huge difference in his skin!

A key ingredient in the fight against acne
I have very oily skin and was constantly battling breakouts. After using this product morning and night after cleaning with the new acne wash, my face has not looked this good in years. Used in concert with other Mario Badescu products aimed at oily skin, the results are phenomenal!

This is the best astrigent ever! It makes you feel refreshed after you use it. I swear by it!
Brandi G. | Sunday, September 10, 2006 | CA
Yay for Cucumber!
this stuff is so nice on my skin. its very cooling but doesnt leave that "minty" feeling that most toners i have used tend to leave behind. ive been using this with the buffering lotion, the drying cream, and the acne face wash. my face has never looked so good! bye bye cystic acne, hello again pretty face!
