What Is Centella?

Before we get too far into the review, I think it’s important khổng lồ know what the main ingredient is. Not all of us are super duper knowledgeable K-beauty enthusiasts so just in case, if you’re like me & you’re learning as you go, here are the deets. Centella Asiatica is also known as Cica, so you may have seen it on other products. It is rich in antioxidants so it helps soothe inflammation of the skin which means it’s great if you are trying lớn combat redness or acne. Centella asiatica extract also has anti-aging powers, is rich in amino acids and helps boost skin elasticity. When you start lớn read the ingredients lists carefully, you’ll find this all over. It’s in one of my must-have favorite products, the Parsley Seed Energy Serum by AwakeAsleep and in one of my favorite vi-ta-min C serums, the All day vi-ta-min Brightening và Balancing Serum from Jumiso. It’s really a necessity for my skin & probably for yours too.

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Toning Toner

*
What is it? Toner

The site explains that this is a non-irritating exfoliator for sensitive skin as well as all-types of skin. As dead cells prevent complete absorption of nutrients, this exfoliating toner helps khổng lồ prepare your skin for the application of other ampoules and serums. The company uses high-quality centella asiatica from Madagascar and the toner is meant khổng lồ keep skin moist, bright, and không tính phí of wrinkles. Other ingredients in the toner include niacinamide which is for reducing blemishes, hyaluronic acid khổng lồ help with moisturization and hydration, and betaine for balance the waters và oils in the skin. This product is alcohol không lấy phí and paraben-free.

This is a trộn toner, as opposed to a AHA or BHA which you may have seen before. Pha has a larger molecular structure than AHA, which means it penetrates the skin a bit slower và therefore doesn’t exfoliate as powerfully as acids with a smaller molecular structure. These mild acids are perfect for all types of sensitive and/or dry skin conditions, prone to irritation and/or redness.

When to Use: After cleansing face. Morning and/or evening.

My Thoughts: First of all the packaging is just beautiful. Apparently the company changed their packaging in the autumn of 2019 and seeing what the old bottles looked like compared lớn this, I can say this is just exquisite. The previous bottles didn’t allow you lớn see the hàng hóa but lớn see this amber gold is just right in my opinion. The simple packaging is elegant, sleek, and minimalistic.

I know you really want to lớn know about the product inside though; the toner has a watery consistency. At first I thought it would probably only be suitable in summer months but as the weather has chilled và winter has arrived, my skin is still loving this và actually maybe a bit more than before. The toner is immediately absorbed into the skin without any oily or tacky residue feeling leftover. It leaves my skin refreshed. I use it both in the morning and in the evening và love how it makes my skin bright & supple after use. There is no discernible scent that I can detect. This is definitely a toner that I will keep in my arsenal. If your skin is like mine & doesn’t react well lớn AHA toners, then definitely look into this trộn toner. My skin loves it.
