This highly moist facial toner enriched with green clay and tea tree leaf extracts is used for healing blemishes and other impurities clogging up and enlarging pores.  The toner treats enlarged pores without drying the skin.  The directions are to shake the bottle to get the powder and liquids mixed up, then wet a cotton pad and gently wipe all over the entire face.  This toner has a very sweet smell.
