I've never had a regular skin regimen, but my sister got me to try this and I was hooked! I think it is the aromatherapy benefits you get when using it. It's been over 100 degrees here everyday for the past week, so I put my Eucalyptus Toner in the refrigerator. I take it out and apply it 2-3 times a day and it totally refreshes me, cools me off and lifts my spirit all at the same time. I love it!!
