Current Skincare | Toners #3

I am so close to finishing most of these toners I thought it was high time I did another roundup! Now, I do currently have more than these four toners in my collection but I am still taking Roaccutane so these are all I have been using for the last 5 and a half months as they are all gentle and hydrating so perfect for my drier than normal, sensitive skin! 


hydrating toners for sensitive skin

Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner RRP £16 for200ml

One of my favourite beauty discoveries of 2020, this is my second bottle as I love it so much!

It contains just seven ingredients (milk vetch root extract being the main one), and is instantly cooling and soothing. It’s thicker than a normal toner, feels very gel like and is so gentle and hydrating. Like I said, it is perfect for my currently sensitive and dry skin and my face just drinks this up! I apply with a cotton pad like I would a toner but you can also apply by patting in with your hands like you would an essence. Previously, I had the 100ml and but I upgraded to the 200ml as I love it so much! Full review here!


I’m From Rice Toner RRP £26 for 150ml

Continuing with the K Beauty theme, this is a milky, hydrating toner that contains rice extract to brighten the skin as well as one of my favourite skincare ingredients, niacinamide! I love using this in the morning as it feels calming and balancing as well as brightening and doesn’t dry my skin out so it feels well prepped for my next skincare steps and makeup. Overall, my skin looks more even and this also featured in this Five Things I’m Loving post here!


Dear Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner RRP £20.10 for 180ml

Like the Pyunkang Yul, this is another gel like toner perfect for dehydrated skin. It is formulated with hyaluronic acid as well as centella Asiatica and amino acids so as well as being hydrating, it is cooling and anti-inflammatory. Like the name suggests, it preps skin well for my next skincare steps leaving it plump and calmed. I would say I prefer the Pyunkang Yul just very slightly over this though the two are very similar! I seemed to gravitate towards the essence toner more when I started Roaccutane as it felt slightly more hydrating to me but this one is still a great shout too!


Scientia Peach and Glow Hydra Skin Tonic* RRP £24 for 100ml

With my skin being too sensitive for any products containing glycolic acid, salicylic acid and retinol at the minute, I was happy to see this toner contains Tranexamic acid and Bakuchiol, two much gentler alternatives to help with pigmentation and fine lines! It also targets dullness and the ingredients list has Matrixyl 3000 and Glycerin in there too resulting in hydrated and brighter skin. Since using this toner, I have found my skin tone looks more even although I haven’t seen a dramatic difference in my pigmentation but there is some improvement for sure! My skin does look much brighter though and I think this has been helping combat fine lines. It leaves my skin feeling soft and well prepped and though you can use by patting into skin I still prefer to use a reusable cotton pad to apply! Full review of Scientia Skincare here!

So, that’s the current toners I have on rotation! If you would like to see instalments one and two you can! And if you want to see my full toner collection it's right here! I have about a week of accutane left then I will be adding them back into my routine as my skin gets less sensitive! Let me know your favourite toners!
