Blog about Korean cosmetics, reviews and articles
Hello again 🙂 I want to tell you about two of my Korean toners for this spring and summer.
The first one – a wonderful hydrating facial toner Innisfree Jeju sparkling mineral skin. What makes it so wonderful?
First of all, the bottle is a wonderful teal (oh how I love it!). It makes me happy on the bathroom shelf and during use.
Second, the toner itself, despite being quite liquid, gives A+ hydration! After application, the skin soothes, becomes full of moisture and stops asking for hydration.
This mineral water toner normalizes the skin’s pH balance thanks to the balanced acidity of the treatment. Contains 88% mineral water from the Sanbang mountain of the Jeju island, rich in carbon dioxide and various beneficial minerals.
Onsen-Sui, Propanediol, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, Glycereth-26, Orchid, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Camellia Japonica Leaf Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum Fruit Extract, Betaine, Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit Extract, Saccharum Officinarum Extract, Acer Saccharum Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Fruit Extract, Octyldodeceth-16, Xantham Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Phenyl Trimethicone, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Fragrance
The bottle is thick plastic without a pump; pouring into palms isn’t very comfortable but that’s the only negative of this product. The color is somewhat white, the scent is fresh and slightly marine. The 200 ml of product should be used within 12 months of opening.
My combination skin has reacted wonderfully to this toner during the northern winter conditions. Now that Spring is finally here, my skin loves it even more 🙂 I love using it in the mornings.
The second one – Mamonde Rose water toner. I love it just as much 🙂 Why?
It smells like roses, a very delicate and pleasant scent (for those of you who don’t know – I love roses and their aromas).
In general, I like Mamonde’s aesthetic – flowers, pastel colors, non-pretentious packaging.
The toner is, again, very liquid like water, but hydrates well. Thanks to the rose water, the toner regulates sebum production, soothes irritation and inflammation. The manufacturer claims that the rose water extract is made at low temperature and high pressure, which helps it retain maximum amounts of beneficial ingredients.
The bottle is made from fairly soft clear pink plastic with a flip top, also without a pump (Koreans, why can’t you figure it out?). The liquid is colorless, the volume is 250ml, needs to be used up within 12 months of opening.
Rose Extract(90.89%), Butylene Glycol, Prunus Mume Fruit Extract, Nelumbium Speciosum Flower Extract, Glycerin, Ethylhexylglycerin, CarbomervPEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Tromethamine, Phenoxyethanol, Fragance
I’m sure this toner will be suitable for the seven skin method (which I don’t like myself all that much). It’s very light, doesn’t overwhelm the skin, and I often apply it with cotton pads and not hands.
Both toners make me happy: hydrate, soothe, and don’t overload.
I’m sure they will work well during the hot months.
