Suki Concentrated Balancing Toner with White Willow Salicins

I recently gushed about Suki's Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser, which has quickly become my favorite face wash. I'd like to now wax enthusiastic about its Concentrated Balancing Toner, which I've also been using the past month. These two products have transformed my skin from acneic-oily to combo-normal. Here's why the toner is amazing:

Pretty factor:
First, Suki products are ultra pure and free of all these irritating and potentially pore-clogging ingredients. This toner's star ingredient is white willow bark—a natural form of salicylic acidwhich exfoliates and cleans out pores without irritation or dryness. It additionally contains organic chamomile and aloe vera to reduce inflammation and redness, and vitamin C to repair via boosting new collagen production.

Eco factor:
Suki products contain organic ingredients and are packaged in eco-friendly materials like recycled stock, vegetable ink and glass (never plastic). The company supports fair trade, organic and biodynamic processing and local suppliers. It's an active member of numerous organizations including the Organic Consumer's Association, Breast Cancer Action and the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics for Responsible Medicine. Absolutely no animal testing.

To buy:
$24 at Whole Foods, sukipure.com and futurenatural.com

Two things: Does this toner come in spray only? I like the cotton ball pour-n-pat better.
Also, does this Suki make something to refresh your eyes? I feel like I am neglecting my lookers and they could use some lovin.

Thanks for the questions, Jennifer! Yes, the toner comes in spray form only--but I like this because 1) it stays on your face, and the longer a product has contact with the skin, the better it will work. And 2) you can spray it on your face during the day for a little refreshment + anti-bacterial action.

And yes, Suki makes an amazing eye product. It's called Eye Tissue Repair:
