NUTRIENT-FILLED, SERUM-LIKE TONER
An essence toner by Pyunkang Yul may be a new name to the skincare market but they are a famous name in Korea that specialises in hanbang, or traditional and herbal medicine. With this knowledge the Essence Toner was created and what a superb product this turns out to be.
Reason being, Pyunkang Yul has produced this essence toner with a lovely consistency and balance of wateriness and surface tension. It is not too watery like some toners (looking at you Keihl's), yet not as thick as the Hada Labo Gokujyun toner. It has the right balance which allows this Pyunkang Yul essence toner to go on your face smoothly and absorbs well. Very light and incredibly gentle on the skin yet produces impressive levels of hydration. It is definitely geared towards people with sensitive, dry skin.
With such a short ingredients list of less than 10 things, the Pyunkang Yul Essence toner is a no frills toner. Only the essential things that work is added to the mix. Therefore This toner contains 91.3% milk vecht root extract (or astragalus root), a plant used in traditional Chinese and Korean medicine. It has been used to treat skin for hundreds of years, and is supposed to be a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. No perfume is added either so is suitable for allergy sufferers.
