I have never used a toner before and never have I felt the need to, so when I was given this Rice Toner, I was stoked! My first impression of the toner was that it looked stunning - the bottle is fantastic! So classy and very beautifully designed. The packaging of this product has recently been changed from glass to plastic to avoid damage during transit and I actually prefer it in a plastic container. I feel like glass would be classier but it doesn't bother me too much!
The I'm from Rice Toner is a popular Korean skincare product that combines the benefits of brightening and hydrating in one formula. It claims to help target dull, irritated or ageing skin. Perrrrfect! It is created with ground Yeoju Rice and 77.78% Goami Extracts. This toner exfoliates your skin and leaves it feeling smoother and more hydrated.The product forms a protective barrier over the skin to prevent water loss, leaving it supple and radiant. Perfect for babes with dull, fatigued skin, as well as dry, irritated skin. I also love that this toner contains Niacinamide, which is great for Hyperpigmentation!
I used this toner everyday for 2 months in my morning and nighttime routine. It is super hydrating and has a water consistency that easily absorbs into your skin. Every time I used this toner, my skin instantly felt supple and healthier. You must shake the bottle well to separate the water layer & emulsion layer. I tip it into a cotton pad and apply it to my face and it doesn't have an odour, but it feels luxurious on your skin and very refreshing.
And the results? This is clearly a powerhouse hydrating toner, there is really nothing bad I can say about it. I've been thinking and thinking about something bad to say about it - but let's be honest, if I've got nothing bad to say - I can't just 'make it up' right? I mean we're trying to be honest here. It's hard for me to say something bad about a toner that works quite well. I'm glad i tried a toner and have it in my routine now, I would definitely use a toner in my routine from here on out. It has been nearly two months and I've still got 3/4 of the bottle left to go, so for the price this toner is huge value for the price. Now I am very lucky my skin doesn't throw up too many issues to begin with, but i have noticed my skin is a little brighter and smoother after the two months usage. There's not huge a difference but I can already see my skin just looking healthier.
My Verdict: I would definitely re-purchcase! It's not an elaborate or time consuming application, and eaves skin refreshed. It's the perfect pick-me-up in the mornings and just before bed. This toner has really changed my idea on what a toner should do and how it should feel on my skin. I thought toners didn't really do much and that they were all astringent (i.e. they took off any leftover makeup) but this one is super hydrating. It is a winning luxury toner in my books!
What does an eye cream do? Well, it pretty much does what a moisturizer would. It can hydrate, soothe, treat fine lines, hyperpigmentation, etc. So do eye creams really make a difference? And is an eye cream really better than moisturizer for your face? The answer is, they can indeed make a difference to your skin AND they can be better.
