Etude House AC Clean Up Toner | Review

Most people skip toner as they believe that skin is clean enough after cleansing, but most of the time, cleansing alone isn't sufficient. The purpose of toners is to clean off leftover grime and impurities that your daily cleanser failed to remove. It also helps to bring back the pH level to skin's naturally acidic pH level after cleansing, as most cleansers are alkaline. When choosing a toner for acne-prone skin, look out for ingredients like salicylic acid, tea tree oil or witch hazel, which will help to lift dead skin cells, remove excess sebum and reduce oil production.

One of my recent favorite toners for acne-prone skin is the Etude House AC Clean Up Toner, which I will be doing a review today. It is a revamped version of my all-time favorite toner, AC Clinic Daily Toner.

Formulated with salicylic acid, tea tree oil and madecassoside, Etude House AC Clean Up Toner moisturizes and soothes red, irritated acne skin. It is non-comedogenic tested.

It has a 6-FREE system — Free of animal ingredients, mineral oil, imidazolidinyl urea, triethanolamine, tar coloring and artificial fragrance

Ingredients List: Water, Alcohol, Chamaecyparis Obtusa Water, Glycerin, Propanediol, Peg-8, Salicylic Acid, Allium Sativum (Garlic) Bulb Extract, Madecassoside, Ampelopsis Japonica Root Extract, Allium Cepa (Onion) Bulb Extract, Glycoproteins, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Chamaecyparis Obtusa Leaf Extract, Butylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Potassium Hydroxide, Peg-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Disodium Edta, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance

Etude House Precious Mineral Magic Any Cushion MINT SPF34/ PA++ | Review

Makeup artists always emphasize the use of a good primer to create a flawless and even base before the application of foundation/bb cream. So today, I will be sharing my thoughts on Etude House Precious Mineral Magic Any Cushion, which is a 6-in-1 almighty color correcting primer that can be worn alone or under foundation/bb cream: Moisturizing + Whitening + Anti-Aging + Sunscreen (SPF 34 / PA++) + Foundation + Cooling.

There are four colors to counteract different skin problems like red, dull or pallid skin:
- Magic Pink smoothes out and brightens pale skin into a healthy and vibrant skin.
- Magic Mint covers blemishes and neutralizes redness for an even-looking complexion.
- Magic Peach brightens dull complexion to make it appear even and refined.
- Magic Lavender balances dull and yellowish skin into a natural bright complexion.

I'm sure many of you have heard about this product over the years. Some of you may have tried it already. For those who haven't and are interested in Magic Mint, I hope my review provides you with the information you need.

Let's begin with the review, shall we?

As I have acne-prone skin and lots of capillaries, I got it in Magic Mint, which is for redness. Ideal for acne-prone and easily irritated skin.
