I received this essence from Picky & Mixsoon in exchange for my thoughts. Let's talk about it... 🧸Mixsoon Soondy Centella Asiatica Essence 💲32/3.38oz 🐇Cruelty Free 🤍Fragrance Free Rating:🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️ My experience : If you've followed me for a while you know how much I love cica. Its a game changer for sensitive skin. Mixsoon has formulated it beautifully in this product. There are multiple ways you can use it & I tried them all. I applied it with my hands & patted it in, I mixed it with serums, & then repurposed one of my favorite bottles & used it as a mist. The mist has become my favorite way to use this essence. It really soothes the skin on contact. 🥶It has been so devastatingly cold in the midwest & my skin gets windburn easily. This essence has worked wonders for the irritation & redness. My skin drinks it up.

Disclosure: I am a Round Lab Ambassador but please know I critically test everything and only share my genuine thoughts. On to the review!🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️ This has been my calming soothing go-to since I got it and I am obsessed! I keep it in the fridge and usually apply it with my hands, but sometimes I'll soak some cotton pads and place them on my chin and cheeks for a few minutes. It soothes my redness and irritation on contact and I'm super grateful for that. I love Mugwort and this toner just does all the things for me. If it sounds like something you'd love I have a 15% discount link in my profile here and on IG.😘 Highly recommend!

*Received from Picky and Plodica in exchange for review 💛Plodica Re:wake Moist Treatment $28/150ml 🌱Vegan ⭐Rating: 🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️ 🙌🏻Ingredient Highlights: ▪︎Nelumbo Nucifera(Sacred Lotus) Callus Culture Extract & Leaf Cell Culture Powder ▪︎Magnolia Officinalis Bark Extract ▪︎Niacinamide ▪︎Cocoa Seed Extract ▪︎Adenosine 💬My thoughts: Hello hydration!! I was not prepared to love this so much. I had never heard of the brand & didn't love the packaging... I know that shouldn't matter but let's not pretend we don't see a product sometimes & think "no thanks" without even checking the formula. This is why I love getting so many new things to try. There are hidden gems everywhere! The texture is viscous and silky. A few drops go a long way & once patted in, this stuff feels like instant gratification. Super soothing & hydrating without feeling heavy. Highly recommend for my dry/sensitive friends or anyone looking to add a hydrating moisture boost to their routine.

SoonJung pH 5.5 Relief Toner

This is a new love thanks to Picky! I love that it doesn't contain HA since that seems to be in everything these days. I can use my fave HA products with it & not worry about overdoing it.

SOON JUNG ph5.5 Relief Toner 💲16.52/200mil Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Highlights: ✔️Lovely light watery texture ✔️Layers beautifully ✔️Soothes irritated skin ✔️Simple but effective ingredient list ✔️Can be used as a mask 💬Thoughts: This is my favorite from the set! I keep it in the fridge for a cooling effect & use multiple layers. It soothes my skin on contact. I love that it does NOT contain Hyaluronic Acid. It's hard to find products without it these days & while I like HA, I don't need it in every single step of my routine. Highly recommend for my sensitive skin friends!

⚠️HOLY GRAIL ALERT I love everything about this toner. 💲22/100mil 🛒www.goodlight.world 🇰🇷Made in Korea 🐇Cruelty Free 🌱 Vegan 🤍Fragrance Free ♻️Recyclable Packaging 🌏Sustainably sourced Standout Ingredients: 🌼Meadowfoam Seed Oil ~A fatty acid that hydrates & improves healing in damaged skin barrier function. 🍄Snow Mushroom ~Holds 1,000x its weight in water in particles smaller than HA to penetrate and hydrate. 💧Ceramides 🥰Niacinamide 🤍Oat Kernel Extract 🌵Prickly Pear My Experience: 💬 Y'all, I am OBSESSED. I feel like my phone pics can't do this product justice. From the clean, white, milky texture to the gorgeous, detailed packaging, it is seriously beautiful. But beyond the looks, this stuff works. 🥰My skin drinks it in & instantly feels silky smooth & hydrated. I fell in love immediately. While I have quite a few toners I enjoy, this quickly became my number one. If creamy toners are your thing, you will LOVE this. Highly recommend for dry sensitive skin like mine, but I have a feeling every skin type can benefit. It's formulated beautifully & the ingredients are perfect for me. 🛍Don't walk...RUN and get it! Get the whole line. Get three of everything

I received this Neogen Dermology Cica Repair Snail Essence from Neogen & Picky in exchange for my honest review. Lets talk about it... 🐌Neogen Cica Repair Snail Essence 💲27/100mil 🌈Standout Ingredients: 🐌96% Snail Mucin Extract 💜Hyaluronic Acid 💜Plant Collagen 💜 AC-CICA PURE COMPLEX *Centella asiatica, asiaticoside, madecassic acid, asiatic acid, madecassoside 💜10 different fruit extracts *antioxidant & soothing properties 💬My Thoughts: If you're someone who wants the benefits of snail mucin, but is put off by the slimy texture, this is a great option! This is the lightest, fastest absorbing snail product I've ever tried. It feels so nice going on & leaves my skin feeling plump, smooth, & calm. Its also greatly reduced the redness in my most sensitive/irritation-prone areas.🥰 There's no sticky feeling, and it pairs so well with the rest of my products. I also really love cute packaging & the decision to put it in a pump bottle. 🙌🏻 After using this essence twice a day for the last 3 weeks I have gotten so many compliments on my skin from the people who see me most often. I really love it & will definitely repurchase. 😘Huge thanks to Picky & Neogen for gifting me my new favorite essence. I'm obsessed!🥰

Round Lab sent me this toner to try out & I freaking love it!! Its the perfect combo of milky & watery. "Nourishing" is in the title for a reason. Nourished is the best way to describe how my skin feels after layering this on. Oh and the bottle is huge so it will last a long time! I prefer using my hands as cotton pads take away from the smooth, milky texture. Highly recommend for most skin types! *Affiliate/discount links in my profile & IG

I received this toner free from Picky and Skin1004 in exchange for my thoughts. Quick features: ✔Fragrance Free ✔Cruelty Free/Vegan ✔Fermented Centella Asiatica (Lactobacillus/Centella Asiatica Extract Ferment Filtrate) ✔TECA (Titrated Extract of Centella Asiatica) *I've been making some notes for a post all about TECA, but in short its said to strengthen the skin barrier, calm & sooth irritation, prevent dehydration, & even skin tone. Talk about a multi-tasker! My thoughts: Y'all...its so good. I layer this up after cleansing & it leaves my skin feeling soothed & hydrated. While its clear, it almost has a milky feel to it. Every product that follows absorbs like a dream. LOVE this toner.

Another winner from Skinfood!! This one has gone viral a few times so you may be thinking "is it overhyped?". In my opinion the hype is totally justified. Here's why... Standout Ingredients: 🐝 63% Black Bee Propolis Extract 👑 10% Royal Jelly Extract 🍯 10% Black Honey Extract 💬The texture is rich, but not tacky. There's no fragrance or essential oils & it comes with a convenient push-button dropper. (Love those) I can tell they put a lot of thought & care into this one. It feels really soothing & hydrating on contact. Looking forward to any long-term benefits I may see.

*Received free in exchange for review 🌿#1 Pure-Full Calming Herb Toner $15/300mil (price varies so shop around!) ✔️Fragrance Free! ⭐️Rating: 🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️ Ingredients I Love: ▪︎Centella Asiatica ▪︎Heartleaf ▪︎Licorice Root ▪︎Panthenol 💬My experience: First thing I noticed was the giant size. This big boy will last a long time! Like most watery toners, I popped a mist top on the bottle & stored it in my skincare fridge. It's quite soothing & absorbs beautifully. I love misting between skincare steps & this is a great toner for that. I've been using it for about a week & haven't had time to see results but for me, & more importantly, I love how it feels & absorbs so it's more of an instant gratification toner that soothes & hydrates will prepping my skin for next steps.
