Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner Review-
Hello lovelies 🙂
I am a self-confessed toner junkie & love experimenting with a lot of toners. I am still besotted with my Pixi Glow Tonic but thought I should limit my use of glycolic acid to alternate days so I started alternating with this lovely gentle toner from Kiehl’s- their calendula toner.
What Kiehl’s Says-
This facial toner for oily skin and normal skin has been trusted by Kiehl’s customers since the 1960s. Hand-inserted Calendula flower petals work with other gentle ingredients like Great Burdock Root to create a cleansing and soothing toner for skin.
- Gently cleanses and refreshes facial skin without harsh synthetic drying agents
- Soothes and improves to create a more balanced, even skin tone
- Formulated with Calendula, Burdock Root and Allantoin
- For normal to oily skin types, including sensitive skin
- A customer favorite
The Calendula petals in our unique skin toner are still inserted by hand in the Kiehl’s apothecary tradition to ensure the most efficacious formula.
- After cleansing with a face wash like Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash, moisten a sterile cotton pad with this facial toner
- Smooth on skin in areas where needed, avoiding the eye area
- Apply day or night
- Can be followed with the cooling hydration of Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask

My take on the Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner-
All Kiehl’s liquid products come in cylindrical transparent bottles with white flip-top caps & this is no exception. It is a fuss-free & convenient packaging though I would not carry it along for the large size.
The toner is pale yellow in color with real calendula petals actually floating inside 😀 It has a runny texture & feels like water when I saturate a cotton round with it & sweep gently across my face. It has no stinging or cooling feel & instead feels very mild, hydrating & instantly wipes off the remnant dirt & grime from the skin without stripping it at all <3 My skin immediately feels refreshed, softer without any stretchy/dry feel 🙂
I have been using this toner for more than a month now & have till date not seen any irritation/aggravation of my sensitive skin. It instantly calms & soothes my skin & is perfect for even my normal-dry skin type even though it claims to be for oilier types.
The toner has a very mild herbal type of fragrance which I don’t like much but it is too mild to bother any nose so that’s okay 🙂
Pros of the Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner:
1> Sturdy fuss free bottle packaging with flip-top cap 🙂
2> Mild, watery consistency- neither stripping nor heavy/greasy.
3> Skin immediately feels & looks refreshed, clean & soft <3
4> Does not irritate/aggravate skin in any way.
5> Suitable for all skin types.
Cons of the Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner:
None as such except the fact of course Kiel’s products are awfully pricey.
My Rating: 4.7/5!
Do I recommend the Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner?
Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner is a very mild & gentle toner suitable for all skin types, made to calm & soothe skin while removing all remnant makeup & dirt & grime. It is pricey indeed but a little goes a long way & I have hardly made a dent in mine after using for more than a month 🙂 Recommended.
