This toner is very calming and soothing, I have sensitive skin that reddens super easily, and spraying this really helps refresh, and hydrate it. I spray it after cleansing and after my serums before I sleep at night. I didn't get any type of irritation. I get hormonal breakouts, I can't say it particularly had any effect on my skin when I went through them.The smell reminds me more of lavender water and I enjoyed it, but if you are not so much of a lavender fan you probably won't like the smell. It definitely calms the skin, but for the overall effect it had on my facial skin, I believe it is overpriced which is why I'm giving it a 4/5.
