Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner Review

Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner

I went into a Kiehl’s shop one day, and was told that they are doing a 15% off store wide! Yes, I should have bought more, but I have a box full of beauty items I still haven’t even looked at. After a lot of deliberation, I settled on this funky looking Calendula Herbal Extract.

From the photo, you can clearly see petals of marigold floating around. The fluid as you can see, is tea colored. This looks like a yummy tea someone would drink if they did not realize that this is not that nice to drink. Aside from pretty petals, this toner contains other additives/ preservatives to keep the shelf life longer.

How I Used It

Mask with Calendula Tea

I soaked it in the dry sheet mask, and use it as a hydrating and soothing mask. You can soak cotton pads with it, and apply on problem areas, the like T- zone. The cap holds enough liquid to allow the mask to soak in the toner, and expand, and it would take around an hour before the mask dries out. After I put it on my face, I will then add more of the solution on the mask, to make it really wet.

It felt like I was using marigold tea as a facial treatment, In hindsight, a box of calendula tea would not cost that much. Aside from the marigold, not sure if the other stuff in the solution does help with any skin condition. On the plus side, this smells like tea? As it is fragrance free, it might appeal to some who are after an alcohol free toner that also does not smell bad without fragrance.


Although Kiehl’s is generally a good brand. I like its range of good quality items, such as its infamous Ultra Facial Cream. Even though this sounds and looks good, in reality it is overpriced. It is not like the petals are standardized or chosen as a specific species. Ultimately, you could really just get a back of Marigold tea, use some on your face and drink the rest.

But if you would still like to buy some, Amazon or Ebay sells them.

  1. I haven’t heard of this brand before, but not sure it sounds worth the price. Did it make much of a difference? Might be something needed to use regularly before seeing any benefits, at least it sounds as though it smells nice 🙂
