I first started using Gaelle Organics products in January 2012. My skin is allergic to just about every drugstore face products you can imagine. It was even worse post-partum, so I had to make a drastic change. I began with the soap and moisturizer only and eventually added toner, then exfoliant. The TONER made more of a difference than I would have imagined. It removes slight impurities from my skin and has even shrunk my gigantic pores, over time. I highly recommend you purchase this with your other products the first time around; this makes a profound difference in your skin's appearance.
