Do you use toner in your daily skin care routine? If not, you’re missing out. Toners don’t just deliver hydration to skin. They also offer soothing, clarifying, brightening and anti-aging benefits.
Searching for the perfect toner to complete your regimen can be quite a task, so we made it easier for you with a list of some of the best K-Beauty toners to try out this year:
For healthy and glowing skin, try incorporating I’m from’s Rice Toner into your morning and evening routines. This toner is packed with goami (rice) extracts that brighten skin and improve its elasticity. When used daily, you’ll start to notice that your skin tone looks more even, more radiant and plumper than before.
Are you dealing with inflammation or irritation? Leave it to Nacific’s Real Floral Toner Calendula to calm your skin. Packaged in a sleek bottle with real calendula petals, this toner will look good on your shelf. It also does a good job of soothing and nourishing a compromised skin barrier, thanks to calendula flower extracts and Jeju Herb 7-Complex.
NEOGEN’s Probiotics Relief Toning Pads are perfect not just for moisturizing skin but also improving its texture. If your skin feels rough or bumpy, try these toning pads formulated with rice ferment filtrate and probiotics to boost skin’s moisture while refining skin texture. Use the embossed side on targeted areas. Afterwards, sweep the smooth side over entire face.
COSRX’s Pure Fit Cica Toner Pads are recommended for those with oily or acne-prone skin. Formulated with centella asiatica extract and madecassoside, these toner pads work to soothe blemishes and get rid of inflammation or redness.
Toners can also provide exfoliating benefits, and Beauty of Joseon’s Green Plum AHA Bubble Toner is a great option. It contains 25% green plum water and 3% glycolic acid that work together to slough away dead skin cells to reveal a brighter and smoother complexion.
Although this toner is suitable for all skin types, it’s most ideal for those with sensitive skin. Anua’s Heartleaf 77 Soothing Toner is infused with EWG green-grade ingredients, such as houttuynia cordata extract to soothe skin and provide antibacterial benefits. It also protects your skin from environmental stressors including air pollution and UV damage.
Acne-prone skin types need a toner that gets rid of dead skin cells, reduces sebum production and refines pores. This is where Pyunkang Yul’s Acne Toner comes in. The star of its formula is salix alba bark extract, which acts as an anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing ingredient. Use this toner to treat blemishes and prevent new ones from forming.
Getting rid of pores may not be feasible but you can find products that help to shrink them, like RNW’s DER. Pore Reducing Toner. The formula leaves skin feeling balanced with a bit of a glow. Thanks to witch hazel leaf water, lactic acid and licorice extract, this toner gently exfoliates skin, reduces inflammation and helps fade dark spots.
Who else loves a toner in mist form? If you do, then you won’t be able to get enough of the Fundamental Ampule Mist from Dear, Klairs. It works great as a daily toner or a mist to reach for whenever your skin needs a pick-me-up. With key ingredients like green tea, hibiscus, mugwort, rice and cucumber extracts, the Fundamental Ampule Mist will give your skin maximum hydration!
For face mist fans who want to explore new options, Haruharu WONDER’s Black Bamboo Mist is worth trying. Say goodbye to tired skin as soon as you spritz your face with this mist! This ultra-fine mist instantly refreshes and quenches dry or dehydrated skin, thanks to a combination of phyllostachys nigra (black bamboo) and bambusa vulgaris (common bamboo) extracts.
