I've been using this for over a month now. A hydrating toner with a viscous feel. I use my hands to spread and pat on. I have had no irritation with this and do feel that my skin is more supple from using on a regular basis. I have combination skin and this has, with regular use, seemed to have calmed down (not totally) the oily parts of my face but yet hydrated all areas. A nice toner which I will most likely purchase again after I finish this bottle.
