The product is a combined product of toner and essence, thereby the name of the product.
The packaging is a sturdy bottle (150 ml) without any fancy Korean typical packaging. But still the product is the only thing that is important in the end huh?
You use this as you would any other toner, directly after washing your face, and then pat it in.
Its main ingredients are mainly hyaluronic acid, glycerin and ceramides.
What is hyaluronic acid?
It is an acid produced by your body and located in-between your skin cells. When you are younger your skin will have a high level of hyaluronic acid, which basically is a molecule that helps the skin to bind water. When the skin has a high level of hyaluronic acid the skin looks even, bright and elastic. The older you get the harder your body will have to produce this acid; the skin gets dryer and won’t be able to bind as much water and wrinkles starts to be visible. By adding hyaluronic acid in your skincare, you will help the skin to increase moisture improves the skins barrier and elasticity and also serves as an anti-aging ingredient.
What is glycerin?
Also known as glycerol or glycerin. It is present in all natural lipids. It is one of the substances in skin that helps to maintain the outer barrier and prevent the skin from getting dehydrated. If one uses pure glycerin it can instead lead to an increased dryness. But in the right amount it can help other lipids do their job better.
What are ceramides?
They are naturally occurring skin lipids which are the major structure components of the skins outer layer. They are important for their water-retention capacity but also for barrier repair. This also decreases by age quite rapidly. So, by adding ceramides to your skin routine you can help to restore the skins barrier and keep the skin moisturized. It will basically protect the skin from damage and prevent moisture depletion.
My thought on Skin watchers ceramizing essence toner
I love this on, this is my new favorite toner. It used to be this one from Etude House. But I have completely changed my mind on this. This one is so great that I do expect magic to happen to my skin. Here (Sweden) it is winter now (still no snow and +5 during the days) but the cold weather really makes my skin even more drier (as if that would be possible) so it is really important that I moisturize a lot, or else my skin will actually crack from dryness (read about my skin story here)
So, this was exactly what I needed this winter, as my skin still haven’t messed me up.
The product is very thick in its consistency, and if you are using toners that are common in Europe and America, this one is completely the opposite to that. it is really not possible comparing Asian toners to what we are used to, you can read about the difference here
The toner is scented, and the scent is perfume like and too me it is way too strong, Usually I am not a fan of products that are too strongly scented, but I guess this one could have smelled like pig pee for all I care, it is still an amazing toner.
I give this product 7/7
