Brightening and wrinkle improvement toner that calms and balances the skin’s pH thus helps retains moisture in your skin barrier.
Other than moisturiser and sunscreen, toner is also an important part of your skincare routine. My skin has significantly, and I mean by A LOT just by adding a toner to my skincare routine. However, there are various types of toners and like moisturisers you will have to find one that is right for your skin.
What: Watery toner for brightening and wrinkle improvement.
Recommended for: All skin types including acne prone skin and damaged skin.
Packaging: Very fun the packaging, it’s cute and colourful. Most of their products are also brightly coloured.
Fragrance: Slight Citrus scent detected (Jeju is known for its fresh citrus fruits!).
Formula: Watery and I mean VERY watery consistency. Not sticky
Feel on the skin: It feel like nothing? As it feels like water, it just like splashing water on my face.
- Aloe Vera Leaf Extract – Contains salicylic acid which helps prevent and eliminates traces or bacteria-caused acne. Also helps to cool skin down and thus calms and balances the skin.
- Niacinamide – Again this ingredient is also a form of vitamin B3. A powerhouse ingredient that is compatible with most other skincare ingredients. B3 work to reduce hyperpigmentation (dull skin), decrease pores but also hydrate and support the skin barrier.
Previously Orinbe, it is now Orinheal. Well, now that’s out of the way let’s go with first impressions. The bottle is massive, and I mean huge! Never have I seen a toner bottle of that size, I think most toners are 100mls minimum and maybe 200mls, but this bottle is 500mls! The bottle is a simple bottle but the brand and the sticker itself are fun and bright as it has so many colours splashed everywhere.
When I tried pouring it into my hand, it went everywhere because the bottle was massive so when I squeezed it, I couldn’t control how much was coming out. Also, the consistency was watery, so it went everywhere! So, if you could buy the spray cap that would be less messy but otherwise use the cotton pad to cover the lid first then pour it.
The toner itself has a slight citrus smell which I don’t mind however I have eczema so anything remotely citrusy has me squirming as I am afraid it’ll sting my skin, imagine pouring lemon onto an open wound kind of feeling. However as mentioned the consistency was watery but also felt like water on my face. So much so that I felt like I wasn’t putting anything on my face and presumably it felt like the product didn’t work at all. I gave it a chance and used it for a week, and I did notice my skin surprisingly calm down which I wasn’t expecting. When my skin calms and cools, my skin seems to clear up so it’s definitely a good thing however aside from that I haven’t noticed any brightening or wrinkle effects YET. I got to keep trying the product then!
How to Use
1 – After cleansing, pour an appropriate amount of toner onto a cotton pad.
2 – Gently apply to the face and neck.
3 – Tap for absorption
TIP: You can soak multiple cotton pads (thin ones) and cover the whole face or areas where they are most problematic. This becomes a ‘toner mask’ almost like the sheet masks you buy. Apply on the face for 10 to 15 minutes if you find just applying using your hands not absorbing well.
Pros & Cons
- Large quantity – Definitely the biggest toner bottle I’ve seen so far, 500mls!! Almost an average water bottle size.
- Jeju recipe – Claims to be made from ingredients derived from Korea’s very own Jeju Island.
- Get a spray cap – as it mentions everywhere, this is a VERY BIG bottle of toner, so it is very hard to control what comes out of the bottle without it spilling or going everywhere! So, get a spray cap so that way you can just spray it on and tap in for absorption.
- Citrus scent – its not strong but it can be refreshing!
