good review
This toner has a waterless formula which contains 91% of Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract. The bottle has an opening from which you can pour the product, and it’s easy to dispense because the toner is somewhat viscous. It doesn’t get as “messy” as very watery toners. Just like all toners, apply this after cleansing. I pour it on the palm of my hand, rub hands together and pat it on my skin. You can layer this depending on your skin’s needs. Don’t let the last layer dry completely before jumping to the next product of your routine. It’s very easily buildable and doesn’t become tacky. I use it morning and night. No need to use a cotton pad. Absorbs well, doesn’t leave any tacky feeling or any film on the skin. This toner really helps me with relieving that uncomfortable dry skin feeling that you sometimes have even after applying your skincare products. If you feel like your skin still feels dry under your skincare, then you may give this a try and pair it with an essence. It really makes a difference. I don’t notice any long term brightening effects from the toner, but I have noticed reduction in inflammation. Thus, the skin appears more even. Works great not only layered but with other skincare products and doesn’t affect sunscreen or makeup. It creates a smooth canvas instead and improves texture. I was a bit surprised by the scent at first. It smells herbal/earthy because it contains Milk Vetch Root Extract. Not exactly my cup of tea, but it’s not overwhelming either. Seeing how often I reach for this toner and how much of it I use, it doesn’t bother me in the least. This toner does not contain alcohol, fragrance or essential oils.... Read more

I like double hydrating toner at night. So usually after washing my face, i continue with hydrating toner and then connect with essence toner. Now I'm using pyunkang yul essence toner. The texture is unique, a little slimy but runny too. The effect is comfortable. Feels more moist and helps absorption of treatment products. Especially if I use exfoliate serum or retinol, I will definitely use it to hydrate my skin so it doesn't over dry in the morning... Read more

𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭: Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner 𝐃𝐞𝐬𝐜𝐫𝐢𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧: 91.3% of this toner is milk vecht root extract, full of skin-beneficial betaine and minerals. With the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, nutrient-boosting properties of the root extract, this gel-type toner quickly absorbs to hydrate and strengthen skin. 𝐊𝐞𝐲 𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬: •milk vecht root extract helps soothes breakouts and acne, along with its skin reinforcing properties to keep the skin healthy •arginine is an amino acid and a natural moisturising factor to help skin hydration 𝐁𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐟𝐢𝐭𝐬: •soothes the skin •aids skin’s hydration •maintains healthy skin 𝐌𝐲 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞: ✅: The ingredient list to this product is so simple that those with sensitive skin will enjoy its straight to the point method. This essence toner is also a two in one for those who want less products in their routine. Now about the product, I love: •it’s lightweight texture (a bit thicker than water) •how quickly and nicely it absorbs •can layer it up for more hydration without any tacky feeling or pilling •it’s large sized bottle so you get a lot of product for its affordable price •the packaging is simple and the cap has a slow released drop system so product doesn’t come gushing out When talking about results, I’ve noticed much plump and healthy looking skin as it no longer looks so dull. I honestly believe it’s helped so much with my dehydration as well! I would consider this a soothing product and always grab it when I have the occasional breakout. When stripping down my routine, I find myself still keeping this product as a must due to how gentle, simple yet effective it is! Would recommend to all skin types, it’s such a universal product!...

❎: through my personal experience, I would consider this soothing for my breakouts but for those more acne prone, it might not be enough. The addition of centella/mugwort/aloe would definitely make this product stand out a lot more! This product may not make a massive visible change for the skin so I wouldn’t go for it if that’s what you are looking for.... Read more

𝙒𝙞𝙨𝙝 𝙄 𝙝𝙖𝙙 𝙩𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙙𝙪𝙘𝙩 𝙨𝙤𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙧! Punkang Yul Essence Toner 💧 is an intensely hydrating toner. It does not contain water but is 91.3% made of milk vecht root extract (Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract). Milk Vecht Root is rich in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties and nutrients. 𝙈𝙮 𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝𝙩𝙨 : I used to think toners were overrated until I tried this toner. Sometimes the simplest products can make such a difference and this is one of those. The toner is a very light gel-type toner that quickly absorbs in my skin. While it sinks in it gives me a funny feeling. I can litterally feel my skin absorbing it, it kinda feels like little insects walk all over mu face. Not sure how else to desribe it. It feels really nice, not irritating at all. The product feels so soothing and deeply hydrates my skin. No more dehydrated skin with this product😍. Also really love the packaging. The blue bottle looks really nice. After trying this product I can’t wait to try more from Pyunkang Yul. 𝘼𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙋𝙮𝙪𝙣𝙠𝙖𝙣𝙜 𝙔𝙪𝙡: Pyunkang Yul is a skincare brand by the famous Pyunkang Oriental Medicine Clinic in Korea. They are known treating skin conditions. They really know how to select great ingredients that are gentle and safe for skin. It’s a cruelty free brand of which I can’t wait to try more!... Read more

I wish I could give this product a 3.5 stars. I’m quite conflicted about it. On one hand, there are a lot of pros. I’d imagine this essence toner would be a dream for someone with slightly dehydrated oily skin. It provides some hydration without feeling greasy at all. The texture isn’t too liquidy so it doesnt run down your hands or face as soon as you apply it. It sinks nicely into the skin and calms the skin. It does seem to give my skin a gentle glow which I really like. It contains only 7 ingredients which is nice to see in a skincare product as sometimes simplicity can be better. It also is good value for money. It is fairly inexpensive and after a month of using it day and night, I’m not even 1/3 through the bottle. A little goes a long way.... Read more

My issue with this product is focused mainly on how it works on my skin type. I have very dry skin and although this made my skin soft, I didn’t feel like it added any moisture to my face at all. As I put it on, it would soothe my skin and make it feel hydrated. After use, my skin still felt fairly dry, no matter how many layers of product I applied. It supplied me with the level of hydration I’d want if I had oily skin, but for my dry skin, it supplies nowhere near enough. Using this hasn’t resulted in any major changes to my skin but it has been a nice experience. I tried layering it and still didn’t notice any major changes. Personally, if you have dry skin, I would give this one a miss. If you have oily skin, absolutely go for it!... Read more

🧊 The glass of 💦💧 for my skin 🧊 If you are still not familliar the toner/essence step is the one between cleanser and serum or moisturizer if you exclude the serum... Essences have a lot of benefits such as: penetration, absorbation and hydration. 💦 So if the products are absorbing better into your skin, and they are penetrating at a deeper level, you gonna get much more hydration. 💧The @pyunkangyul Toner/Essence is very online present and I got it to see what was all the hype about. 💦The brand philoshopy is minimal so all their products contain 10 or less ingrediants. They are cruelty free and on the affordable side. 🧊 This Toner/ Essence has only 6 ingrediants. The main ingrediant is Astragalus root extract, which has anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. ____________________________________ My experience: This toner is the glass of water for my skin. It has really nice texture, not too thick nor too runny. After application my skin literally drinks it off. It is very hydrating, easy to layer and it is scent free.... Read more

It’s a toner which has a thick consistency. It starts off as something thick like it is plump but when spreaded, it becomes watery. It doesn’t really have a smell. It has a whiff of an herbal scent which fades away quickly. This is so lightweight. It’s perfect for the 7-skin method. I like using it both day and night. I often use it more as an essence than a toner. I love to pour about 4-5 drops on my palm and pat it gently on my face. It doesn’t feel hydrating when I put on just one layer though. I like putting on 2-3 layers to be exact! I also add more layers if my skin has been irritated due to products that I have used. This toner really saves my skin whenever it’s in trouble. This won’t be my last repurchase of this product for sure. I highly recommend this to all skin types! It’s like water for my thirsty skin. My skin feels so hydrated and plump afterwards. It’s like it has chugged a lot of water and retained moisture. I’m not even kidding.... Read more

Nothing for me! I find this really good. Although when I apply one layer, it doesn’t feel hydrating and I don’t like using it as a toner too.... Read more

wow! This toner blew me away, it evened out a lot of redness I was having on my face and gave my moisturisers and serums such a perfect glide for even application. The product is 100% natural and unscented for those who like the less is more kind of approach (and those with sensitive skin). It gave my skin a very dewy look as well under my moisturiser, Im excited to pair it with Glossier Futuredew once it arrives in the post.... Read more
