CthonneMVP Essence TonerDecember 19, 2017I'd bought Pyunkang Yul's Essence Toner just to help address a skin issue - itchy, dry, with ezcema-like patches. The essence toner is lightweight, viscous out of the bottle but turns watery when applied. (It's never any less fascinating watching the drops roll around on a cotton pad before they sink into the cotton.)
It absorbs well - so much so I've been able to tell when my skin needs less instead of more, depending on how fast it vanishes into my skin. I've never been able to sense that. More fascination!
It soothed and chucked moisture into my skin when it needed it badly. With everything else I was using, in under a week the dry skin had gone, the flakes were down to nothing, the redness was fading, and I was starting to get a slight glowy sheen. I'd been assuming it did nothing much or was just something of a background worker when I overhauled my entire skincare regime then, but now, I'm appreciating it more and more for what it does. This thing is perfect. It's almost good enough as a standalone moisturiser. Almost! Currently, I'm pairing it with Cosrx's snail moisturiser and boiii I never knew I could look Insta-worthy straight out of bed but gaddamn, I am. Whew.
DrNikHydrates as it saysNovember 4, 2017Purchased this on the recommendation of YouTuber @gothamista (she should get commission from Yesstyle, given almost everything I buy on here I know about because of her!) It is quite watery, but with a nice amount of slip, it soaks in quite quickly and it doesn't have a strong smell. My skin does feel slightly smoother after using it, and best of all it doesn't cause spots in my mature-yet-oily skin!
Melanie Ponticorvomy love letterAugust 31, 2019Dear PKY,
I've suffered with scalp plaque psoriasis for 17 year. 2 of those I've been using your product as part of the 7 skin method and have seen amazing results. Please keep up the good work.
- Your most ardent admirer
P.S. I would love a scalp tonic!
LOCNGUYEN_S...My new favorite toner.September 1, 2017After cleansing, I use this toner to prep my skin. This toner is very hydrating and absorb very quickly into the skin. There's no sticky residue after I pat this viscous toner into my skin with my hands. The ingredients are all clean. There's no alcohol, Parabens, or any nasty stuff that might irritate or sting your skin. This toner has a subtle herbal scent to it but quickly disappear away after applying onto the skin. I actually love the herbal scent. It smell so refreshing and soothing. My skin looks healthy and glowing after I use this toner. I really like this toner and will likely purchase again. Highly recommended from me.
Alyssa GuzmanLight but hydratingNovember 20, 2018I adopted the Korean skincare method about a month ago, specifically the 7-skin method, and it has done wonders for my skin! I used to be oily and acne-prone but I honestly believe this toner has helped balance my skin. I'm no longer oily (except for my nose due to large pores), I rarely ever get breakouts now, and my skin has never felt so soft! I often find myself just touching my cheeks to feel how soft they are. I've even tried to get my friends and family to feel my cheeks! LOL I loved this product so much that I've already purchased the 30ml for my gym bag and another 200ml as a backup once I've run out of my current bottle. I use 1-2 dashes/drops(?) of this every morning and night for at least 3-4 skins, alternating with other essences/toners depending on what my skin needs. So I still have over half the bottle left. Love love love!
bonnie taylorLoveOctober 7, 2017Purchased this after seeing a review from Gothamista on YouTube and it's just perfect for layering on my dry skin ive been using it daily and I've just repurchased.
The texture is not thin and watery it's a little denser but my skin soaks it all in. Also love the way it drops out you have control how much you want to put on at a time
JayebeeHoly GrailApril 29, 2018This is my 2nd purchase of this and I couldn't imagine my skin without it! I LOVE This! It's so hydrating!! It has become my favourite toner absolutely even after trying a few others now!Super hydrating!March 26, 2018This was my first foray into the world of Korean hydrating toners. Completely different from western toners this has blown my mind! I can do a couple of layers of this as it is so thin; the consistency may be slightly thicker than other Korean toners I have heard but it sinks in in seconds. From the very first layer of this, my skin felt plump and smooth! With continued use it has only improved leaps and bounds. I have found now that having properly hydrated skin has solved any fine lines and some of my spots too! It's made with a Chinese root which is proven to help blood flow, which explains why my spots have healed much much quicker as well! There is little to no smell with this also and no essential oils or alcohol.
In short I'm really happy with my purchase and will definitely be buying again!!
Divya Nadkarniholy grail for dehydrated, eczema-prone skin!December 10, 2017I have been using this product for almost a month, and I could tell from the moment I first applied it that it was something special. It is slightly viscous, almost like a light non-greasy oil (the closest I can compare it to is a linoleic acid rich oil), and it glides effortlessly over the skin with an instantly calming sensation. I keep mine in a tiny refrigerator, and the added cooling effect has been amazing in relieving the eczema flares I have been suffering from on my face and neck. Within days, the angry red inflammation underlying the eczematous patches-- including one that had been raging on for months-- was resolved. Furthermore, within weeks, the thin crepey-ness from the atrophy caused by the inflammation is also significantly improved! Most importantly, this product did not cause any breakouts thus far. I cannot imagine getting through the winter months without it. Will definitely repurchase!
Anna NorellAmazing and affordableNovember 13, 2017Great toner that lasts a long time. Hydrating and calming to my skin. A real find!
ElizabethFountain of youthSeptember 17, 2017I don't write many reviews, but this toner/essence is da bomb. I highly recommend this if you have sensitive skin. it truly improves the texture of your skin. I purchasing several more today!
Kirsty IintellJust love itMay 25, 2019So I'm new to k beauty and wanted to try a toner for my dehydrated skin. I'd seen a lot of people recommending pyunkang so ordered. Omg! My skin drinks it in not rashes or breakouts. Its help my oily tzone to calm down and my skin looks plumped and so smooth and fresh. I've already got more in my cart! I don't were foundation or power just blush/highlight and eyes and lips. My skins positively glowing since starting this.
FreyaSimple but very effective tonerApril 9, 2019I used this toner right after exfoliating my skin (Skin type - Combination). Three things I love about this product is
(1) no scent - I personally don't trust products' claim of both smelling great and being natural at the same time;
(2) light weight - it slides on skin even though the consistency is slightly thicker than toners from other brands. It's somewhat similar to Klairs', and Yehwadam's toners (you know if you have used these toners :)
See the photo below for consistency comparison (...all three from Pyunkang Yul.)
(3) hydration - a serious business between this brand and me :))))).
Maybe....Pyunkang Yul should ask me to become their influencer :))))Great for the 7-skin methodApril 7, 2019This is a very hydrating and light weight toner, perfect for layering. The minimal list of ingredients is a star feature of this product, and the whole brand in general.
