Huh. The 'real' purpose is for skin tones but you use it for skies.
As opposed the what I said, "It's deceiving to call it a skin tool because it can used for any color in an image..."
No need to fight friends. You're both right.
In our online classes
we call this the Consistent Color Tool. As noted twice above it changes the WB (kelvin and tint) to ensure that the same subject (whether it is sky, skin, suade, or saxophone) appears the same color even when the light source changes. It's also great to match a particular subject color between two or more cameras.
The Color Editor can also be used to manipulate skin tones and is both harder to use and more powerful.
