This well-known clarifying toner from Korea is among the top-rated items in its category. Actually, my friend bought this one. She bought this clarifying toner instantly since she wants to try it. She continued for two days but decided to quit since she wasn’t pleased, so she purchased another toner (different one). Then, two weeks ago, I asked her if I may test this product during my sleepover. She offered me this one because she isn’t using it anymore. Perhaps she recognized my interests in skincare and cosmetics, reason why she offered me this product, which gave me a chance to presently evaluate.
I was so delighted that I tried it right away on my face. We have sleepovers with masks on, much like those closest friends in a movie. We both adore cosmetics, so I really loved it.
So what’s inside this product that everyone has been hyped about?

Despite my friend’s unpleasant experience with this product, I was excited to try it for myself, expecting that because we have different skin types, it would work well on me, so I tried it the same day she gave it to me. Because it is a mist toner, I sprayed it on my cotton many times because I didn’t feel like I sprayed it enough (so I think this product will only last a month for me). You may also spray it straight on your face, like we do with other facial mists, or on your hands and gently press it on your skin for improved absorption.
Toner is something I prefer to use with cotton. So, as I began to slide it across my face, I began to believe what my buddy had told me, that it felt like I was wiping my face with wet cotton that had been drenched only in water. I didn’t feel anything out of the ordinary. This, I assume, is a clarifying toner… And, in my opinion, it should exfoliate dead skin clearly. At first, I dismissed this product as insignificant, but with continued use, I found that my skin grew fairer and dewier. I can’t tell if it truly helps for blackheads or whiteheads because I don’t have any obvious ones on my skin, but if you only use this product for a short time, you won’t really see the change it will make to the skin.
I had great hopes for this product because I had read so many positive online reviews about it. Anyway, it’s a good thing I opted to keep using this toner, because that’s how I discovered its effectiveness on my skin. I will most certainly repurchase it in the future. I strongly advise anyone with skin issues to use it. ☺️
