Top 5 Korean Toners
Remember Your First Toner?
Full of alcohol, astringent and capable of taking every last drop of moisture in your skin with it?
So, the good news is that Korean toners are nothing like that.
In 2023, toners go way beyond just treating acne. Thanks to K-Beauty’s goal of hydrated skin, toners from Korea address a wide range of skin concerns without stripping your skin of much-needed oils.
Unlike western beauty toners, Korean toners come in a variety of textures from watery to more viscous. They also contain different active ingredients like salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, AHAs, BHAs, PHAs, Vitamin C and more.
No matter your skin type, there's a Korean beauty toner that is perfect for you.
Wondering why you should use a toner?
Firstly they help rebalance your skin’s pH levels after cleansing. In addition, they assist to increase absorption of other skincare products you apply next.
