Hi there! I’m back! It’s been awhile since I posted my last review here. Been busy with my love life (just kidding!). But yeah it’s true! But being busy doesn’t mean I’m not taking care of my skin especially my face. So here’s another review of mine.
After using my 2nd bottle of Eskinol and Belo Essentials Hydrating Toner which I didn’t used up the entire bottles. I decided to go for a different brand. So I decided to go for Kojie San’s toner plus cleanser. The reason of choosing this is because I don’t want to go for a whitening toner anymore. Well, i don’t know ironically my main reason of using toner is to eliminate my pimples, cleanse my face and diminish those nasty and stubborn blemishes caused by my effin pimples.
6 reasons why you should use facial toner
Dr. King explains all of the toner benefits:
It shrinks pores.
Applying a small amount of toner, like Nelsons Pure & Clear Balancing Toner ($10.95 atNelsons Pure and Clear), to a soft cotton ball or pad and gently blotting and wiping your face with it will remove oil and give the appearance of smaller pores.
It gives your skin pH balance.
Our skin is naturally acidic, normally with a pH balance of between five and six. After cleansing, due to the alkaline nature of soap, the pH balance of skin gets disturbed. When this happens your skin needs to work overtime to restore the balance (and that may result in oil), but using a toner helps to restore this balance quickly.
It adds a layer of protection.
Toners can help close pores and tighten cell gaps after cleansing, thus reducing the penetration of impurities and environmental contaminants into the skin. It can even protect and remove chlorines and minerals present in tap water.
Some toners are humectants, which means that they help to bind moisture to the skin.
It refreshes skin.
Toner can also be used in lieu of washing your skin when it’s oily or dirt. It will leave your skin revitalized, even when you’re on-the-go.
It can prevent ingrown hairs.
Toners containing glycolic or other alpha hydroxy acids can help to prevent ingrown hairs, so it also aids in grooming.
Kojie-san Cleanser Toner
We swear by the power of this toner. It easily lightens the skin with regular use. It has a dual action formula that is made from Panax Ginseng, which cleanses and tones the skin. Best to use at night after a long day to flush skin impurities.
- I like the packaging of the toner. It’s kinda looks CUTE.
- I like the smell of this toner too. Not too strong.
- It is refreshing on the face.
- It cleanses my face. My basis is how dirty my cotton pad/ball is.
- Affordable. There are 2 sizes. I bought the small one it costs 43 pesos. It somehow goes a long way. It depends how much you put on your face.
- Readily available on almost all drugstores and supermarkets.
- I don’t know if it really helps in lightening my blemishes.
- I think this toner is just merely for cleansing your face
- There might be a stinging sensation especially if you have open wounds or pimples on your face.
Overall Rating: 3/5
Will I purchase it again? I’m not sure. I might look for other toners. Right now I’m thinking of going for Celeteque or other toners once I used up the entire bottle.
**Update: Hi guys!! As of now I’m sticking to this toner and for months haven’t changed my toner. Since my tretinoin cream and vitamins helped a lot on my acne and post-acne issues I don’t have plans of changing my toner . I’m cool with this. I don’t want to opt for expensive ones that doesn’t deliver great results.
