- Step 4: Toner
Hi there, welcome back, today we are doing top 10 of K-beauty products. I’ll be talking about the best Korean toner. I feel like this is a really good one to wrap up the year. I’m going to go through each of the best Korean skincare toners. So think of it as the 10 different toners. Ok, we’re jumping in.
The things that I look for in a good toner is one for it to be relatively thin in texture. So that it feels like a splash of water for my skin and it absorbs really quickly. I also want it to be pH balancing and clarifying. So it removes any fewer traces of makeup on my skin. Of course, I want it to kick-start the hydration for my skincare routine. The Son and Park beauty water hits all the checkboxes for me when it comes to a toner.
It’s the best low pH toner. It has a really low pH of 4.5 which is exactly what I want to be putting on my face after cleansing to help rebalance my skin’s pH. It doubles as cleansing water. So it’ll remove any last traces of makeup that may be lingering on my face after my double cleanse.
It has very gentle. The natural exfoliator is like willow bark and papaya extract which help give my skin a very gentle exfoliation every day. And just the way that it feels on the skin. It can’t be beaten. Honestly feels like an ice-cold glass of water for your skin after cleansing. There is nothing more refreshing than that.
This pH balancing toner works well, it does everything I wanted to do, This Korean pH balancing toner hits all the checkpoints, and it’s that nice watery refreshing texture that just feels so good as the first step in your leave on products for the rest of your skincare routine. So 100% this beauty water toner is what wins the toner category for me.

This Acwell licorice pH toner is a high concentration of licorice water. It has a 5.5 ph really makes my skin feel hydrated and prepped and ready for the rest of my skincare routine.
Acwell licorice toner contains one of my favorite ingredients, licorice extract which is a natural brightener. This brightening toner really brightens up your skin and it removes makeup so well. It kind of like a toner, but it also works as cleansing water after washing your face. I do double cleansing and then I would follow up with this toner, and sometimes I would see makeup on the cotton pad.
This toner is amazing. this is hands-down my all-time favorite toner. If you haven’t tried this Acwell pH balancing toner you need to try it now. And now Acwell licorice pH balancing toner also has a mist version. This is the best toner for brightening skin.
Dear, Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner
The main reason why I love Dear Klairs supple preparation toner so much is that it’s the perfect toner for every skin type, but especially for acne prone and sensitive skin type. Every time you put on toner out of 10 times, if it stings about 3-4 times, it probably means that it does not fit your skin. It was really hard for me to find a toner that really didn’t string.
I love this toner because every time I put it on even when my skin is irritated or even after I pop a pimple, it doesn’t string. I love the fact that it moisturizes deep within. If you don’t have a serum, you can apply 2-3 layers of this toner. This actually works as a serum also.
This toner absolutely saves my life. This has a lot of good formula with essential oils in that, and this is very very hydrating, and after your cleansing step, you’re just going to pat this on. It’s low pH, it’s going to really help you hydrate your skin.
This is something that you probably have tried. This toner literally saved my face, really great for super sensitive skin. It made my face so radiant and it didn’t cause any breakouts. This is the best toner for acne-prone skin.
Dear, Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Toner

Dear Klairs unscented toner is a great toner. If you have sensitive skin, don’t worry, this is free of essential oil, so that means it’s not going to irritate your skin, this is the best facial toner for sensitive skin. It is transparent like its bottle. I was surprised at how light and natural it felt on my skin without any tingling sensation. The consistency is a little thicker than water. It’s one of the products that you try and you can feel like an immediate difference.
Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner
I am obsessed with this product. My first-time kind of hearing about the brand Pyunkang Yul, I think it’s most famous abroad, then it is famous in Korea. I used to be one of those people who was wondering what do toners even do? I don’t see a point of putting on toners, but oh my gosh! this was a total life changer because after using this I realized what are toners for, they’re hydrate to your skin, prep your skin for the other skincare that you put in afterward layers perfectly on top of the toner. This really changed my perception of toners. I absolutely freaking love this.
This would be perfect for literally every single skin type, if you have oily skin, sensitive skin, dry skin, I think every skin type will love this because even when you’re using it you can tell that it’s very gentle, it’s not aggressive at any anyway.
I just to mention a bit about its consistency and all that in the formula. It’s very light and very gentle, it almost feels like water, and it really hydrates your skin. What I do is dump a very generous amount of it onto a cotton pad, and I just gently wipe it across my face. So I highly recommend this one. This is the best toner for all skin types.
PURITO Centella Green Level Calming Toner
I raved about the Etude toner and I think this centella asiatica toner has taken its place. I actually didn’t know what centella was. It’s actually a very good ingredient for skin. My skin loves it. I have nothing but good things to say about centella toner.
Purito centella toner is made with really good ingredients, it’s very gentle, very moisturizing. Even if you have oily skin you would stay away from toners that dry out your skin. This toner is suitable for all skin types. If you have sensitive skin I think you might really really love this centella water alcohol free toner.
Whamisa Organic Flowers Toner Deep Rich
The essence is something a little bit more bouncy and viscous than a toner. These are products that have a little bit more volume in the formula, they’re a little bit thicker but at the same time they’re still a liquid, so they absorb into your skin quickly and they’re usually going to be in like a dropper formula or something like that. Whamisa organic flowers deep rich essence toner is one of my favorite products ever out of everything that I’m talking about across all steps in my routine. Whamisa toner organic flowers is one of my holy grail products. I just love everything about it.
First of all, the texture is exactly what I’m looking for in an essence, it’s that bouncy voluminous, still liquid texture. This flower water toner is incredibly hydrating. It doesn’t have any acids, exfoliators or alcohol. It layers really well which is another quality that I love in my essence. It’s also just a sensorial product, it’s such a pleasure to use.
Whamisa is known to use organic ingredients, have waterless formulas, and they use a lot of fermented ingredients which I really like. It doesn’t irritate my skin, it is so intensely hydrating, it absorbs really really quickly, and it preps my skin for the more heavy products that I’m going to be applying afterward.

The person that made Nakeup Face stress zero toner has super sensitive skin, so she needed a toner. That’s why Stress 0. All the ingredients are EWG. Basically, all the ingredients are good for you, and they’re not going to break you out, even for the most sensitive skin. It’s calming and balancing.
I like Nakeup Face toner because it’s a redness reducing toner, it really calms down the redness in my face because I use a lot of products. It feels like water but it’s more moisturizing than just water. It’s 500 milliliters, it’s a lot but it actually not that expensive, it’s long lasting. So love that. The Stress Zero is the best facial toner for redness and best calming toner for sensitive skin.
Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner
When I was researching toner for pores, the Etude House wonder pore toner came up a lot, so I thought I had to try it. It’s basically called considered a toner, but it doesn’t have the really stripping properties that alcohol astringent have in the United States.
What this is supposed to do is it has 10 different functions such as deep cleanses your pores, maintains pH, controls a large amount of sebum, minimizes the appearance of pores, refined skin tone, keeps the elasticity of pores, moisturize of skin inside and out. It is an awesome multitasker that it’s just really quick and easy to use.
After you cleanse your skin, you basically just take a flat cotton pad and apply it all over your skin, or you can just pour a little bit into your hand and apply it onto your skin. If you have oily skin and you want to try something to help correct that,
Wonder Pore Freshner is the best toner for oily skin and large pores. I would definitely recommend the Etude House pore toner because I’ve heard a lot of people love this, and it’s definitely a Korean cult favorite.
