Lovely toner but still not a favorite

Skin Type: dry Skin
Skin Concerns: Anti-Aging (Fine lines & Wrinkles), Dehydrated Skin, Uneven Skin Tone

The toner has no smell, which is a huge plus for me. I am really not a fan of scented products. I really think that when you have so many products on your face, body, hair etc., and everything has a scent. Then you add perfume on that and maybe you have scented fabric softener as well. It is just totally overwhelming. Bare in mind that I might have a sensitive nose?.

This toner is very liquid and transparent, it feels more or less like water. It absorbs rather quick and it doesn’t leave any sticky feeling on my skin. I really don’t feel that it does much on my skin at all. I have super dry skin and I love for my toners to be somewhat moisturizing and this is not. If you have oily or normal skin, you might feel satisfied after using it.

I have two other toners from Etude House that I simply love (Collagen freshener and skin mal gem) but this is more like aha, and what’s next feeling.

The claims of this product are impossible to test. The claims being, reduce skin irritation and heal damaged skin. These two claims really take time to change, and there is simply not enough product to make that change on my skin. Therefor I simply can’t say anything about that.

The toner isn’t drying on my skin but it is not moisturizing either so I really am conflicted about what this one does on my skin. The feeling is more that I add something in my routine just because I am supposed to. Usually with Korean toners (like the once mentioned above) the skin really feels great after just applying it. But this one, does not give me that feeling.

I started using this toner after I emptied out the Dear Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner, and I think I have found my favorite HG toner. This 80 mL bottle lasted me for about a month and a half with daily use, morning and night. I apply about 1-2 layers of this and it is the gentlest toner I have ever used.

PACKAGING:
This product comes in a transparent thick plastic bottle with a white cap. Its label is also transparent with blue and black fonts. It looks and feels so chic, you can really tell that the packaging isn't cheap.

CONTENT:
This bottle has 80 mL of product in it. There is also a bigger size but I chose to get this smaller version because I wasn't sure if it will work for me. The content is enough to last you for a good month or two, depending on how much product you apply every day. I use this one morning and night and layer it 1 to 2 times to it lasted me for about a month and a half. Not bad at all.

TEXTURE:
The product is very watery and it greatly resembles water because it is just a clear, transparent liquid.

SMELL:
It doesn't has any smell of fragrance at all. It is really just like water. And I love it. I don't mind a little fragrance in my products but I appreciate it if they don't come with scents at all. And this product does not have any fragrance and this is a huge plus for those with sensitive skin. (Like me)

APPLICATION:
It applies so well to my skin and it just sinks in immediately. It's very gentle and just like water, but with the soothing and relieving goodness in it from its ingredients. When pat dry, I feel how my skin feels so refreshed, soothed, and nourished. I am in love with it, I cannot wait to repurchase it!

EFFECTIVITY:
After just a month of using this product, I saw and felt the difference it made on my skin. It helped tame my breakouts, I am currently having less to no breakouts at all compared to the previous months that I was not using this toner. Incorporating this product into my skincare regimen really made a difference. It is gentle, but it is so effective.

PRICE:
This 80mL bottle retails for P400 in Althea Korea and I think it is worth the money. It is kinda pricey because you can get other toners at the same price but with more amount of product. But this product is really worth its price.

The Verdict:
I love this toner. It didn't break me out, and it helped sooth my skin. It is gentle and does not irritate the skin. It has become my number one out of all the toners that I have tried. I will definitely repurchase!
