Review: Innisfree Rose Clear Skin (Toner)

Innisfree Rose Clear Skin (Toner) Review

Until February 2014, I had technically not used a toner in 5 years! I used to use Rose water occasionally but I always thought Toner was unnecessary for my dry skin. I thought toners worked better for oily skin. And I stand corrected. After using the Innisfree Rose Clear Skin (toner) I now know that it helps close the pores and maintain the pH balance of the skin. Of course for dry skin one should opt for non-alcoholic toners. And this one from Innisfree does not have any alcohols. Let’s see how it is working for my skin!

Innisfree Rose Clear Skin

Product: Innisfree Rose Clear Skin (with Rose & Green Complex)

Claim: Enriched with rose water to refine coarse and dull skin leaving skin sleek and vibrant.

Quantity: 250 ml

Price: 9500 KRW (~ 9.5 USD) | Buy Online

At this price, the Innisfree Rose Clear skins is the most afforable toners from their skincare range. It comes in a clear plastic bottle with silver metal twist open cap. All the details are mentioned on the cream sticker plastered all over the bottle. I am not too much into Rosy scents and rose based skincare products except Rose water so I opted for this toner. The sale going on at the time was 20-50% and I got this at a 20% discount I think. I really like the subtle (not-in-your-face) rose scent of the toner.

The consistency is just like a normal rose water and it is also a clear liquid. The quantity is so big, I doubt I will be able to finish it anytime soon!

Since I have not used a toner for a long time before using this one, I do not have a frame of reference but I know what the basic functionality of the toner is and how well this matches up to it!

So first things first, it does not dry out my skin. I have used 3 different face creams in the past 2 1/2 months while using the same toner and I have not noticed any drying or breaking out my skin. My skin gets a little sensitive to excessive alcohol content and it has not happened with this one so I think this is quite mild and nurturing to the skin.

I do not have to use a lot and my skin feels refreshed after using it. I have used this a little on my makeup brush to apply some powder makeup as liquid and it worked well like that too.

However, I do not see any visible improvement in the quality or looks of my skin other than the effects mentioned above. My pores have not shrunk either; not that this claims to do it but just thought of mentioning it!

So all in all it is pretty average in results but a lot better than alcohol-based toners out there in the market! I like the simple packaging as well, no tam-jham (show-off)

I have really enjoyed using this over the past two months. When I first got this toner, I was not sure I would like it as much or that I would use it regularly but I am glad I did. I sometimes skip using this at night but I always use this after taking a shower in the morning to close the pores.
