Hey guys! I hope you are off to a good start on your weekend. I’m having a lazy start, but going to be doing some filming for my You Tube channel. Yay! Anyway today I wanted to share with you the toner that I’ve been using now which I have also used in the past. It’s the Hanyul Rice Essential Skin Softener.
Hanyul is a Korean cosmetics brand that is under the Amore Pacific company. This particular line focused on using natural herbs and ingredients that are found in Korea. Also using beauty knowledge that has been passed from generation to generation. It’s a very approachable brand that the packaging isn’t over done, there aren’t many scientific words to describe each ingredient. You get what you get, and that’s a good thing in this case.
So I purchased the same toner when it first came out in 2014 and I liked it, but I didn’t repurchase it because I wanted to try out different things. But at the start of this year I decided to get it again because my skin was dry and I wanted a toner that had anti-aging effects. This toner also has whitening effect, but to be honest I don’t necessarily care about it that. I love my Asian brown skin thank you very much.
The special thing about this particular rice toner is that it uses red rice. In old Korea the women would turn the white rice into red rice by fermenting it in red yeast for up to 8 days. This not only made the rice more nutritious for their families, the water to soak and wash the rice was used in beauty regime to make the skin more supple and hydrated. That’s Korean beauty wisdom right thuuur! I could end this post right here, but I still have some stuff to add.
So the toner isn’t like your normal liquid toner, it’s more viscous. When you apply it to the skin and leave it on it doesn’t evaporate as quickly as other watery toners. Which is good because it forms a barrier of moisture. It’s not sticky either and makes your skin feel smooth and soft. The smell is very pleasant like a floral smell and not at all like yeast, rice, or a fermentation smell.
I will say that the bottle is a bit heavy and the toner is hard to get out the fist couple times. But I think that all glass packaged cosmetics are all heavy anyways so I don’t think that should discourage you from getting this product. It goes for 38,000KRW for 150Ml and last time I bought it I used it for a good 6 months I think. With this product it’s east to see how much you’re using because it’s viscous unlike watery toners that are easier to go a bit over board. So if you’re looking for a nice hydrating, anti-aging, and whitening (brightening) toner try this skin softener!
