The second step after cleansing should be the use of a toner. Korean toners are packed with different substances that are beneficial for your skin. This is really not a step that should be skipped if you have any problems with your skin. After cleansing, the skin is quite sensitive and the toners bring nutrients back to the skin to protect it. Toners preps your skin for the next steps of your skincare routine. Many toners have the main purpose to hydrate the skin and this is of course important even if you have oily skin.
Is this for me?
If you have oily skin it doesn’t mean that your skin is hydrated, you can still have dehydrated skin even if you have an oily skin type. Dehydration means that your skin lacks moisture i.e water, not oil.
For many Korean products from skincare to makeup, the main goal is to hydrate the skin. There are a lot of great toners on the market and I will give reviews on the once I test
From the beginning the toners job was to neutralize the skins pH and bring it back to normal after cleansing your face.Now days the cleansers are so gentle that the skin doesn’t need to be neutralized, instead the toners of today are filled with other benefits to the skin. The skin should be clean after cleansed and the toners are not to be used as a second cleanser. Instead cleanse twice with your normal cleanser or once with an oil cleanser and once with a foam cleanser, and use the toner as a prep for the next steps…
Before I started reading about Korean skincare steps i didn’t use toner at all. Instead i used different cleanser like Dermalogica or Nutribiotic and after that, just a moisturizer and an eye cream, that’s about it. I felt that the European/American toners were more dehydrating. My skin felt dehydrated directly after cleansing and by using an alcohol free toner it would even make things worse.

Brand: Freeman •
Name: Clearing Sweet Tea + Lemon Peel-Off Clay Mask
Where I got this: I got this at Walmart a couple weeks ago since I've never tried it before, but like other Freeman products.
Targets: Clearing the pores of impurities, tones for radiant skin.
Notable ingredients: 3 or 4 different kinds of alcohol... Bentonite, chamomile, licorice root, tea leaf, lemon, tea tree leaf oil, need seed oil, Willow bark, banana, coconut, ginger root, guava, lemongrass, papaya, raspberry, sandalwood, kelp, watercress.
Scent: Despite all the awesome herbal and fruity ingredients in this, all those alcohols really take over and that's all I can smell! •
Results: It says to let it dry for 10-15 minutes, which I knew would be a lie. But even after 40 minutes it wasn't completely dry. It didn't seem to peel off much either. I can't get these other patches to dry or come off. It's all sticky and gummy.
Price: $1.30 or so at Walmart for this packet, $4.29 for 6 oz. tube at Ulta.
(Re)purchase?: Probably not. Elizavecca is better.

#Innisfree No-Sebum Powder
I love this powder and I'm so glad I gave it a try. I'll probably purchase more of these emojis because they're handy and each has a cute packaging plus I actually love the scent. My only issue with this powder is I have a hard time getting the powder out. If I shake it too much, sometimes the powder just flies right out of the case and onto my dressing table and I am just sort of spilling and wasting product here and there. I guess I still don't know how to use this properly. I still love it though. It really mattifies my face after BB cream.
Ever since Kim Kardashian posted about the Ben-Nye Banana Luxe Powder, I bought it as in impulse buy and I was at my second bottle when I decided to stop because it had parabens. I also have the clear/neutral version of the Ben-Nye luxe powder because I was sorta obsessed back then (when I was in college). I actually have no idea what to do with both now as they're still around 3/4 full.
I do want to try the Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder and am planning to purchase soon.
The pale pink and white color combo gets me everytime This pretty thing is a shiny new CC cushion from Kicho, one of my favorite K-beauty brands Wrote all about this cushion on #chainyan.co – go check it out!
