WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW?
In the last few years this product got a lot of hype especially by a famous skincare influencer who said that this toner works wonders for her. Many beauty enthusiasts worldwide also swear by this toner. Cream skin? Bear in mind that in Korea, toner is referred to as skin. So cream skin is a toner that has creamy texture/finish. Lets take a look why this toner is so raved by them.
Miraculous skin fortifier, deep hydration repairs and strengthens skin barrier.With skin refiner alone, leaves skin moisturized as if cream is applied.

3. Mild and safe moisturizing solution

After going through all the claims and reviews, I can conclude that this product is a holy grail for dry skin peeps. So I decided to purchase myself a mini sized 30ml packaging.
I decided to buy a mini sized because the price for full sized is quite expensive for me and I afraid of wasting my money in case this product did not work for me. What I love about Laneige is they deliver full performance on packaging even on mini sized packaging.
It has sturdy translucent plastic packaging. The only downside the openings. It is too wide so need to be extra careful when pouring out the product. Sometimes, the liquid dripped around bottle’s mouth and get messy.
The texture is very watery and adsorbs fast. The liquid has cloudy white in color. I am quite amazed by how this runny toner is able to supply intense moisturization for skin.

White leaf tea water extract is the key ingredient as it claimed to have higher concentration of amino acid.
Im quite happy as this time Laneige has eliminate fragrance from the list.
I am quite impressed with this toner’s performance. No wonder beauty lovers swear by this toner. It adsorbs fast on skin and leave a silky moisturizing layer. If you need more, you can layer this up and your skin will feel like you already done with a creamy moisturizer. So you can just depend on this product by itself. Sometimes I just bring only this as my hydrating toner and moisturizer when on travel.
Somehow, too much hydration might be troublesome especially when you are living in hot humid weather. My skin feel greasy and I am not comfortable with it. This toner caused me tiny bumps in long run. So I conclude that this toner is a NO for my combination skin.
Worth the hype? YES! This toner is great for dry skin peeps or your skin are prone to dryness. The hydration also lasts for quite some time. But I need to accept the fact that this toner is not for me.
