Why is it different?
CALM Redness Relief Toner for Normal to Oily Skin is formulated with our own complex blend of soothing, refining, and skin-replenishing plant extracts, including green tea and colloidal oatmeal to revitalise dull, dehydrated skin and ease redness. It is an essential step in any skincare routine to renew skin after cleansing. Can also help remove the last traces of makeup.
What does it do?
Quickly relieves redness and calms sensitive skin while renewing skin’s surface after cleansing. Its one-of-a-kind formula is a carefully selected mix of potent antioxidants and soothing plant-based ingredients. Gentle enough even for skin prone to rosacea.
How to use
After cleansing, apply toner to a cotton pad and gently stroke over face and neck. Do not rinse. Follow with the rest of your morning or evening skincare routine. For daytime, finish with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 15 or greater.

Ratings & Reviews

GREAT for my extremely sensitive skin :-)


Works GREAT for my rosacea + Central Sensitivity Disorder -affected Extreme Combination Skin :-) Only caveat: if, like me, you have "porcelain" (extremely pale) skin, you'll probably only want to use this before bed. This product has an extremely light yellow/orange tint, which actually shows up on my skin! (It makes me look a bit "off" or "unwell".)

My Favortie Toner


I have sensitive, combination, cystic acne prone skin. This is my favorite toner because it balances my pH and helps reduce the redness of my acne. I highly recommend to anyone out there looking for a sensitive toner.




Is quite calming


I have extremely sensitive skin to the point most ezcema cream burn my skin so it is hard for me to find products that works. The only toner that seems to work for me is the skin recovery toner and this one - I like this one as it is a little thicker and therefore a bit more moisturising than skin recovery

Only PC Toner that doesn't make my skin sting!


I have very sensitive skin around my eyes and I've tried the skin balancing and hydra light toner both which made the skin around the area sting. Not this one! This instantly calms my skin - I can visibly see redness go away and after 2 weeks of use the tone and feel of my skin has definitely improved.

Awesome product


I'm here to increase the rating on this product. This product has, over time, significantly improved my oily and rosacea-ridden skin. Paula's whole CALM line is excellent, but I think people get frustrated with it because it fails to deliver significant change quickly, and perhaps people are very attached emotionally to the old Hydralight line. I always felt Hydralight met my needs, but never surpassed them. (I intermittently used the Hydralight cleanser, toner, and moisturizers over the last few years, but only really liked the sunscreen, although I didn't LOVE it.) However each CALM product I've used has delivered healthier, less oily, less irritated skin over weeks of using them. I am on a major budget and can basically only use one product at a time, and chose to buy this one because I wanted something to remove every last trace of dirt/makeup at the end of the day. I am very happy with how much softer and less oily my skin has become over the month I've used it.

So light and soothing


I bought the Calm line for Oily skin. I am combination. This toner is light, gentle and soothing. It doesn't sting. I applied the Calm serum and the Calm Moisturizer for N/O skin after. My face feels soft, balanced, and calm. I really like this little line for sensitive skin. Very nice.






I love this toner! I was using a different toner from Paula as well but I tried this and love it way more! I need something that cleans my skin and doesn't cause me to breakout while still making sure my skin doesn't get dry, red, and irritated. This is amazing! My skin felt clean but not tight and so calm, not irritating at all. I love this toner! I also needed something oil free since anything with oil (even if its non comogenic) still breaks me out bad.

Refreshing and calming


This product is great for my sensitive combination skin. Unlike some products, Paula's Choice calm toner leaves the skin feeling refreshed without greasey,clean without blocking pores and smells slightly earthy - which is a nice change from a majority of products on the market.




Who cares about smell?


I use this toner daily in am and pm. I use RX trentinoin in PM and RX glycolic acid serum with l-ascorbic acid during the day. (Followed by SPF 30) My skincare regimen is aggressive and I have tried everything from every line!!! I mean EVERYTHING! I spare no expense when it comes to my skin and I am very appreciative of my successful career which allows me to splurge but hands down this Toner is superb! I ordered 3 bottles after using the first bottle for 3 days. For the love of God please don't discontinue this or change anything! I will have no choice but to seek custom compounding from my local pharmacy! In fact, in the event that you do decide to discontinue this product, I will purchase any remaining stock you have!

Excellent after a chemical peel


I had my first glycolic peel in a doctor's office yesterday. My face was (and still is) very sensitive. Sunscreen, moisturizers, and even water left me stinging. This toner is the only thing I've used that did not sting the sensitive areas. I still had a sample of the serum, and also no stinging. It also mad a difference in the redness that was left behind. I will make sure I have both products in stock before my next treatment.
