Oily/Sensitive

I am really impressed on how this basic toner immediately re-set my skin. I was suffering from a damaged skin barrier, and it did its wonders to soothe and hydrate my skin! I have also observed that it: - Lessened my redness - T-zone less oily - Soothe my breakouts - prevented my pimples to form PIH Texture wise, it's watery, but once you've applied to your skin you'll have that "slip" feel I really recommend this if your skin is sensitized from using a lot of actives, or if you have a damaged skin barrier!

As soon as i step out the shower, my face immediately gets dry. I love how this toner preps my skin and literally quenches it and brightens up my face! It smells good and less is more as it does kind of translate oily. One of the best toners I own and i highly recommend.

I have been using it for about two weeks and usually use it with a cotton pad. Besides hydrating my skin, it works well as a cleansing toner as it does remove the impurities on my skin. I love everything about it as it is made with natural ingredients. It is friendly to sensitive skin because it's free of alcohol, paraben, and artificial fragrance.

[ Anua Heartleaf Soothing Line ] Hi gorgeous, Just to be honest I have 2 ingredients that always keep in my skincare routine, Centella Asiatica and Heartleaf (Houttuynia Cordata)because both are powerful soothing ingredients and today I want to share my thoughts about the ๐—›๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ณ 77% ๐—ฆ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ง๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ฟโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ ๐—›๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ณ 77% ๐—ฆ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ง๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ฟ This is a moisturizing toner that helps to soothe the skin irritations and protects the skin. This toner has a very watery texture that absorbs fast without leaving any sticky or oily finish. Love that doesn't contains any particular scent so definitely if you don't like fragances this is the perfect option. This toner is super hydrating and gentle and also leaves my skin so soft and calm during the whole day definitely that's why this toner is an award winner. Love the ingredient list, contains 77% of heartleaf Extract, Centella Asiatica and Panthenol that helps to soothe the skin irritations. I was searching for some comedogenic ingredient and I couldn't find any of them so this toner is perfect for my oily skin community as well.

With 11% AHA this power toner will perk your skin right up and remove all those dead skin cells. I use this every other night after working my way up. You can smell the Kombucha which makes this a delightful treat for your senses too. Filled with fermented tea extract, Lactic acid and glycolic acid. This power toner is also alcohol-free fragrance-free and essentialoil-free.

What can I say? Toners are a girl's best friend! Anyway, I've used plenty of toners and there are some that are a keeper for me and some that I wouldn't use anymore. So without further ado, here's my experiences/review on the Mamonde Rose Toner. ๐ŸŒผWhat is Mamonde Rose Toner? A reinforced soothing and hydrating effect. 90.97% rose water provides enough hydration, and also contains added hyaluronic acid and allantoin for a reinforced skin barrier. (Mmm...I'm loving it)๐Ÿ˜Š What makes this toner special is that it contains exceptional soothing and moisturizing effects of the Damask rose and it's free from animal ingredients, mineral oil, polyacrylamide, imidazolidinyl urea, triethanolamine, silicone oil and synthetic color!๐Ÿ˜Š It is also used to soothe tired and dull skin after a long day, add multiple layers of moisture to dehydrated skin and it is used as an easy and instant hydration solution to dehydrated skin for a soft skin texture. ๐ŸŒผKey Ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid๐Ÿ‘‰Attracts moisture to the skin, keeping it protected and hydrated. Rose Extract๐Ÿ‘‰Provides intensive hydration and a calming and astringent effect to help reduce redness and skin irritation. Also plays a key role in preventing cellular oxidation caused by environmental stress. Prunus Mume Fruit Extract๐Ÿ‘‰Used for fighting skin yellowing and darkening through its powerful anti-glycation action, and effectively restores skin luminosity as well as elasticity and firmness. Nelumbium Speciosum (Lotus) Flower Extract๐Ÿ‘‰Acts as a moisturising agent which helps to heal dry and flaky skin. Also rich in antioxidants and helps prevent acne breakouts. ๐ŸŒผTexture: Light, watery and transparent texture(Because it's water!)๐Ÿ˜… ๐Ÿ“ฆPackaging: The packaging of this rose water toner is quite sturdy and small too which makes the overall bottle looks cute๐Ÿ˜Š Housed in a rose-tinted plastic bottle with a screw cap, it's relatively safe to travel with. As the bottle is translucent, it makes it easy for me to tell how much toner is left so that's a plus point for this toner (You gotta love translucent bottles!). ๐ŸŒผScent: A light fragrant rose scent. ๐ŸŒผWho Mamonde Rose Toner is for? Those with sensitive skin, combination, acne-prone and dehydrated skin. ๐ŸŒผHow to use: As this toner is a hydrating toner, the Mamonde Rose Water Toner is multifunctional. Here are the following ways to use it: ๐Ÿ“ŒAfter face wash, use Cotton pad soaked with toner to wipe skin gently. (Dead skin removal) ๐Ÿ“ŒDecant toner into a spray bottle and use as hydro mist. (Moisturising) ๐Ÿ“ŒWet gauze or sheet pack with toner to use as soothing pack. Place on skin for 10 mins when skin feels dry. (Soothing, Moisturising) ๐Ÿ“ŒMix facial oil and rose toner to use as oil mist. ๐Ÿ“ŒDampen makeup sponge with toner to help loosen cakey makeup. ๐ŸŒผPros: 1โคHas multifunctional uses as listed above๐Ÿ‘ 2โคGood for those living in cold climates area as dehydrated skin is a common issue there. ๐ŸŒผCons: 1โคDoesn't refine pores, lift dirt or impurities away from the skin. 2โคPricey. ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผ ๐‘ด๐’š ๐‘ป๐’‰๐’๐’–๐’ˆ๐’‰๐’•๐’” Honestly, the above mentioned multifunctional uses of the toner sounds pretty good but for me, I don't think I might want to purchase this again. Here's why: During the course of using Mamonde Rose Water Toner for a year, I've not noticed any improvements in my face. Sure, my skin was not dehydrated instead it was rather moisturised but it didn't refine my pores nor did it lift any dirt/impurities on my face. I've used plenty of toners and whether they are oil control, hydrating or pore refining, they all have these in common: Pore refining and Lifting dirt away from face. Unfortunately for Mamonde Rose Water Toner, it doesn't which is why I'm not really into this toner. Hence, I would rate it 3/5 stars๐Ÿ’—. But for those with dehydrated or combination skin, then perhaps this toner would be of great use to them.

Guava 70 Skin Toner Pad

I just tried these recently and am in love with them! I love that they can be used as a toner, essence, or sheet mask, and I love the material of the pads and how it's sturdy but can still be easily torn into strips.

AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner

This is great for when I have a breakout or am feeling extra oily or congested.

AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner from Some By Mi is great for all skin types, especially oily or acne-prone skin, because it contains ingredients such as niacinamide, Witch Hazel, tea tree water extract, and papaya extract which are great for clearing congested skin, balancing excess oil, and shrinking pores. It's also actually a dual purpose product that's both a toner and an exfoliant, thanks to the AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), BHAs (beta hydroxy acids), and PHAs (poly hydroxy acids) which are chemical exfoliants that gently dissolve dead skin cells without damaging your skin barrier. I saw a noticable difference in my skin after just one use. My skin has been a little congested lately (the combination of cold weather, dry air, and furnaces has the tendency to do that), but after the first use my skin was noticably clearer and smoother, and my pores were less noticable. I think this will be a great toner to have on hand for winter months, during hormonal acne outbreaks, etc. My skin is normal-to-dry though, so I feel like daily use might dry my skin a little.
