Features and Benefits of Skin Clear Toner

Skin Clear Toner is an anti-bacterial, anti-microbial toner, medicated with Salicylic Acid, which gently exfoliates, refreshes, and calms skin without drying.

The other key sciences at work in the Skin Clear Toner are Alpha Lipoic Acid and Eucalyptus Leaf Oil.

While Eucalyptus Leaf Oil combats acne and calms inflamed skin, Alpha Lipoic Acid addresses:

  • Scarring and other skin imperfections
  • Fine lines and discoloration
  • Enlarged pores

Recent Reviews of Skin Clear Toner

Works – “I use this twice a day and it’s given me great results. My acne has definitely improved since using this along with my daily regiment. I look at the cotton ball after using this and I think to myself, ‘I know I washed my face!’” —From Sephora

Great product – “Great compliment [sic] to the acne line – definitely recommend using this with the rest of the line.” —From DermStore

Love it - “I love this toner. It DOES NOT dry out your skin like other acne toners. It also leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. I’ve definitely noticed a difference in the clarity and tone of my skin.” —From Sephora

Great at keeping skin clear! – “This toner seems to act as a disinfectant to keep blemishes away. I have tried many, many products and think this one really works to keep skin clear.” —From DermStore

Gentle – “I have very sensitive skin, and most anti-acne cleansers dry out or irritate my skin. This one does not. My acne has really come under control in the few years that I’ve been using the Perricone anti-acne line. For me, this line is a little pricey, but worth it.” —From Sephora

  1. I’d love to be a tester! I have had acne for over 10 years now and have scars to prove it. I’ve had trouble with toners so I’ve stopped using them altogether. I wonder if this one is different and worth the price? I see a lot of positive reviews!

  2. After many visits to a dermatologist and spending a small fortune on products that did not work on my cystic like acne at 53 years old I bought the skin clear cleanser and toner…..after 3 days this acne that has persisted for 5 months is GONE! And my skin feels better hydrated and smooth and soft! Needless to say I’m a huge fan! It works!

  3. I want to enjoy my youthful skin while I still have it! I would love to be a tester for the skin clear perricone line!

  4. I have such troubles with most commercial acne products. They work for a bit, but then stop and my face gets too dried out. I wonder if your products would perform better? I would love to be a tester for these items. Acne and rosacea plague me! Thanks so MUCH!!!

  5. My mom has had such GREAT things to say about Dr. Perricone. I would love to be a tester. I have tried everything out there to obtain smooth acne-free skin. I have not had success yet. I just started looking at the website and will start the acne diet asap. Looking forward to seeing the results.

  6. I have had skin issues as an adult for over 10 years now, bad acne. I have tried everything and have dried my skin out and still do not have a smooth face. It is very frustrating and upsetting. I would be so thrilled to be a Perricone tester. My mom has had such great things to say about Dr. Perricone.

  7. Hi talk about curse, I’m probably the healthiest eater around, I eat all that I can get organic and still my face without makeup looks like that of a leopards. I’t all damaged from acne, I try to cover it with makeup but it still shows, I can’t look people in the eye when they talk to me. I’m so insecure at age 42, still struggling since age 15, and being African American born in Jamaica and came here as a child with beautiful skin. Please please help me. thanks.

  8. I’m 27 and did not have acne until adulthood. Now, it’s clearing up but I’m maintaining and doing what I can to heal my skin, including stopping flare ups before they start, taking care of my skin after having used too many harsh cleansers, and healing scars.

  9. I have been cursed with the worst ance I’ve had ever since my teens. I was placed on antibiotics and still the problem remains. I am currently unemployed and have given up the job search since my skin remains so bad. I am so embarassed I don’t even want to go out. I am not a teen, I am 45 and 2 doctors have yet to come up with a salution. Please help. I am very depressed and giving up hope. Thanks!!!

  11. I have too much acne scars. I hope this can clear them up!

  12. I am 35, and I have VERY, VERY OILY SKIN (always have)!!! I have tried countless items & searched & researched endlessly for help with my problem (IT’S A ENDLESS WAR, THAT I’M LOSING!). It seems that everything is created for “DRY” skin!! However, I do moisturize my face once a day, with ONLY OIL-FREE products. I just wish that I could find an OTC product at a reasonable $$, that would help with Xtra-Xtra Oily Skin!! p.s. I would be more than willing & more than happy to “Guinea Pig” (with no ?? asked!)any product that you produce or invent for such a problem!! Thanx

  13. I would love to try the products for free first.

  14. I have combination skin with enlarged pores (especially on my nose) — coupled with fine lines and the other beginning signs of aging. As a 33 year-old woman, I believe that NOW is the time to attack my fine lines…before they turn into deep wrinkles. Up to this point, I have not been able to find an effective toner that does not dry out my skin.

    I would really appreciate the opportunity to become a product tester for Perricone MD. I do believe that I am well-suited for this role — I enjoy trying new skin care products on a regular basis and I would be more than happy to share my honest opinions.

  15. I have frequent acne breakouts.I have tried different products with no results.
