I just got Kiehl's Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion, which is pretty strong. Just wondering how often you guys use toners? Once a week? Every day?

I plan on using my exfoliating scrub every third day or so, and the cleanser/moisturizer every day. Should I just use the astringent when I use the scrub, or more often?

Thanks.

You would tone it down with the alcohol-inclusive one then right?

Dickinson's Witch Hazel on weekends, but am going to get Thayers scented WH from GNC next. You can get it in either Rose or Lavender scents, and it has no alcohol (if I'm not mistaken).

I'm a fan of the Baxter's as well. I've got a half used bottle of some Neutrogena Pore Perfect stuff with alcohol left over from the dark ages of grooming products... I use the alcohol stuff at night and the Baxter's in the morning; I figure when I moisturize in the morn it helps replenish the effect of the alcohol from before.

I'm sure there's some benefit to an alcohol toner, right? Or is it just that it is simply cheaper and easier to mass produce?
