What does the product description say?
"Burt's Bees Natural Acne Solutions Clarifying Toner removes lingering traces of cleanser, dirt, oil and makeup resulting in naturally clear, healthy-looking skin."
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (cetyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate citrate, polyglyceryl-3 stearate, sodium stearoyl lactylate, sucrose stearate, xanthan gum) and should be able to cleanse the skin gently. Still keep in mind that any cleansing can disrupt the skin barrier, and most people do not need to cleanse their skin more than once per day.
