Tried and true. Our very first toner ever made, this cult-favorite has remained an essential part of a skin-detoxifying routine thanks to its gentle but effective exfoliation and pore-tightening powers. By sweeping away oil and bacteria while binding moisture to the skin, this toner leaves your face soothed, pH-balanced and perfectly prepped for what comes next. Features a cast of refining ingredients such as:

  • Sweet birch to lightly exfoliate dead skin cells and clear the way for newer, younger ones.

  • Clove oil, a soothing antiseptic, to help eliminate the oil and bacteria that can lead to breakouts or dullness while calming irritation.

  • Glycerin, a natural moisture magnet, to attract and hold hydration for a glowing complexion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best toner, easy to tolerate, great results! I used to not be able to use an acid toner because they were all too harsh for my skin. Erno Laszlo's Light Controlling Lotion turned my world around. It's the first acid toner my skin has been able to tolerate in years. I love how it shrinks my pores, picks up any last residue my double cleanse left behind and leaves my skin soft and balanced, ready for my next serum application. The tiny red breakouts I used to experience so annoyingly have also ended. I've seen the light and it's Erno Laszlo's Light Controlling Lotion...the value size, of course!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from makes my skin look younger I have used Laszlo products for over forty years and still always come back to my old routine of morning and night washing and splashing. It makes my skin look younger and keeps it younger than my age. Best product on the market, not only does what it should but smells great too! Leaves your skin soft and clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completes my beauty routine and is a necessity! I have hormonal-based acne that literally comes whenever it pleases, so I have to stay on top of my skin-regimen. My skin was at the point where no drug-store acne medication was working and neither was the very pricey skin regimen that I bought through my dermatologist. I decided to switch back to Erno, though pricey as well, I always see an immediate difference. I started using the black sea-mud soap and my skin started clearing up right away. Then I added the famous light controlling lotion and it was the piece to the missing puzzle. My skin's hormonal acne is best controlled when using this regimen and this light controlling lotion. I have used Erno in the past as a teenager and stopped due to not wanting to pay that much on my skin... worst mistake because now I know my skin is worth the investment and Erno is Definitely worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moi I cannot imagine not using the toner from Laszlo when I have finished washing my face. I put it on with a cotton ball, and no matter how well I have washed, the toner gets more grime off my face, before I put on the serum at bedtime, I feel that the toner has really made my face clean without being harsh. My skin feels refreshed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, can't live without toner Great toner! I'm so glad to see this value size. Love it coz it both is refreshing, and nourishing, and does oil control at the same time. My skin is soft, smooth and radiant and it is effective in oil control. Really great stuff. Highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fast! I have very quirky skin. It's a mad mix of dry, oily, sensitive and environmentally damaged. Finding a product that addresses all four issues is amazing!

Last time I used EL, the heavy controlling lotion was a must at night after washing.Why have you discontinued it ?

Asked by: Billby
I don't know which of Erno Lazslo's heavy controlling lotion, you used.  The only product named "lotion" I have used is their "Light Controlling Lotion."  It is a toner, I use after washing my face.  It is the best toner I have ever used.  It removes the dirt from my face, which is left, even after I wash.  I did not know how clean my face could be and glow.  For a person with combination oily/normal skin, cleaning one's skin is a critical must.  The "Light Controlling Lotion" applied with a cotton pad after washing, really does cleans that job beautifully.
