Review: Etude House Soon Jung Ph5.5 Relief Toner

Sharing with you the toner that I have been using for the past 6 months. This is the Etude House Soon Jung PH 5.5 Relief Toner. I got this in Korea becase it was recommended by Director Pi. It was also on sale when I got it. This costs around 500 pesos I think. Out of all the toners I have tried, this is the most lighweight and the thinnest in texture. In fact, it almost feels like water. Since it is very runny, it works well for that 7 skin method but do not expect it to build up into a rich layer as this is easily absorbed by the skin once applied or patted. This has a PH level of 5.5 which is mildly acidic and balances the skin.

This has very minimal ingredients with glycerin,  madecassoside, panthenol, green tea extract, and skullcap root extract as its main ingredients. 🍃

It is free from parabens, mineral oils, and fragrance which makes it highly buntis (preggy) approved. I find it soothing too. It did not irritate my skin nor caused any reaction to my psoriasis flare ups. This is indeed formulated for sensitive skin. I also think this suits almost all skin types. This is very gentle and mild on the skin.

This lightly moistirizes my dry skin but it is not intensely moisturizing as I hope it would be. This is perfect for hot humid days and it feels very refreshing on the skin. I will transfer this to a nano spray bottle over the weekend to use it as a facial mist. Overall, I really like this toner but will not repurchase a second bottle anytime soon.

What is the best hydrating/moisturizing toner that you have tried? 💦
