Korean Skincare 101: The Saem Urban Eco Harakeke Toner

IMG_8581

Hello Reautifuls!

It look a long time for me to find the right toner that I could just pat into my skin instead of swiping it across my face on a cotton pad. When this toner from the Saem came across my path I quit searching because this is the one!

It took me over 2 years to find a toner that I liked. I needed one that felt moisturizing enough and suited my overly sensitive skin.  I’m so glad I got this beauty!

After reading a couple of reviews online I decided to do more research on the brand and the ingredients of the toner. I found out that the ingredients were amazing and I would be stupid if I wouldn’t try this one.

What the Saem says about the toner:

Harakeke extract has an exceptional moisturizing ability that fills the skin with proper hydration and nourishment to improve its overall condition. The Saem’s Urban Eco Harakeke Toner gets absorbed by the skin’s deep layers to supply moisture and seal it in. This results to softer, smoother and more glowing complexion. Along with Harakeke extract, this toner also has Calendula extract and Manuka Honey extract which are both effective natural antibiotics. This eliminates skin impurities and protects it from the environment’s harsh elements.

How to use

After cleansing, pour an appropriate amount of the toner onto a cotton pad. Gently sweep all over the face and pat lightly to allow better absorption.

A bottle usually contains 180 ml and I got a bottle that contains about 50 ml to try out. I really regret not getting the bigger bottle but for the price it was definitely worth it. A big bottle cost about 14 dollars while the smaller bottle cost me about 8.

I have to say that I cannot, yes, I cannot live without this toner! If I don’t use it for a day or longer I notice that my rosacea is getting worse and my skin feels noticeable drier than when I use this toner. It feels like it makes all of the products I use after this toner really sink into my skin and make it work better (?). It sinks into the skin really quickly and feels very cool and calming at the same time. It somewhat feels like a thicker consistency of water but less harsh in my opinion. I spread it over my face and pat it in until it’s dry.

It has a pump dispenser which is really hygienic and it controls the dispense really well. It’s a very gel-y consistency which if it warms up in your hand becomes watery.

final thoughts

I really, really love this product. I couldn’t go without this toner in my life anymore. The small bottle is still 4/5 full and I got it about a month ago. 55 ml is not much compared to the 180 ml you usually get. I think the big bottle wil last you at least for a couple of months and makes it really inexpensive for what it’s worth. I will definitely be repurchasing this again!!!
