K-Beauty Toners 101: Everything About That Oft-Forgotten Hydrating, Prepping Step

When you think “toner,” you may conjure up sensations of burning, tingling, and the scent of alcohol.

About the product

What Is It:


More bounce, to the ounce! With a refreshing straight forward simplicity, Earth’s Recipe Energy Boosting Toner cuts a clear path to bouncy, happy skin!
Earth’s Recipe Energy Boosting Toner does more than just hydrate your skin. This is a rich bouncy essence toner which provides a fortifying barrier that almost makes you feel like you can abbreviate the rest of your skincare routine! Great if you’re short on time or for a quick morning routine, this toner deeply hydrates skin with the power of Tremella mushroom extract. The Tremella fuciformis mushroom is renown for its ability to draw and hold water (up to 500 times its weight!), and since its particles are smaller than hyaluronic acid, it can penetrate the skin better and more deeply. The formula also features soluble collagen, hyaluronic acid, and a variety of soothing, anti-inflammatory botanical extracts to fortify a damaged skin barrier and provide a bouncy glow.
And Earth’s Recipe Energy Boosting Toner doesn’t just plump you up. Ingredients like Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract and Ceramide 3 work their anti-aging and antioxidant magic, promoting wound healing, collagen production, and safely delivering brightening effects to the skin!
Earth’s Recipe Energy Boosting Toner is 100% Paraben, Sulfate, Alcohol, Silicone, and EU Allergen free!


Our insight:


Our director of marketing Jude Chao (aka Fiddy Snails of Fifty Shades of Snail) is a big fan of the Earth’s Recipe Energy Boosting Toner:

“As thick as a serum but in a much more generous bottle size, Earth’s Recipe Energy Boosting Toner spreads easily and sinks in quickly on my normal-to-sometimes-dry skin, leaving my face softer, smoother, and so engorged with hydration that it gains the dewy brightness typically associated with a good sheet mask session. … “The effects get even better when I layer multiple applications of the product on my face. … Unlike many hydrating toners that are all hydration, the Earth’s Recipe toner has a richness to it that smooths out and fortifies the outer layers of my skin as well. … “Final verdict: I love this toner to the point of addiction. I reach for it before anything else and prioritize it above nearly everything else.”


How to use:


After cleansing face, take a cotton pad and smooth the toner all over the face. Pat face with hands until product is completely absorbed.

I am finally trying this toner out and it is so, so good. It is thick with some nice slip. When I put it on my face, I can see my smile lines softening. This toner also calms my skin and soothes the chronic irritation I have around my nose. I've got five other toners in my collection right now and when I stop using this toner in an effort to use some other ones up, I miss this. It's been a while since I've tried a product that has wowed me so I'm happy that I decided to take... Read more

My favorite toner of all time. I swear this heals acne, gives me an incredible glow, and lovely bouncy skin.

honeydew

could anybody tell me what kind of dispenser this has? it looks like it’s one of those small holes that you shake to get product out of but i cant tell for sure!

annapark

Yup, it's the small hole that you shake to get product into your palm. But it's not one of those you have to beat to death to get product out!

honeydew

thank you!!

hchillin

It is very hydrating and great for when your skin is feeling really parched. I just use my hands instead of using a cotton pad to apply. It’s a lot of product and will last a long time because I find I only need a bit for each application.

Holy moly! Just used this toner for the first time this morning and wow! I definitely see what the hype is all about. It is so thick and just glides across face. I've used serums that are not as thick and rich and moisturizing as this. Can't wait to see long term performance but it is definitely off to a good start!

I'm just about finishing my first bottle of this and I'm resisting the urge to purchase a second, for the sake of continuing to try new toners. The Boosting Toner is SO hydrating and plumping; it has a slightly thicker consistency than a watery toner, which gives it such a substantial feel and texture when applying. I always do at least a 3-skin with this toner, and if I really wanted to minimize my routine, I would be fine with using only this toner and a moisturizer. Would highly recommend!

(For reference, I have dry and sensitive skin!)

This is a simple but effective moisturizing toner. It doesn’t do much more than that but what it does do, it does remarkably well.

I love this toner. My skin was so dry when I started using a vitamin c serum and this completely turned it around. I think the mushroom in this is a better option for me than hyaluronic acid (since I live in a desert and there's barely any moisture in the air). It sinks in pretty quickly when I'm doing the 7-skin method, but I don't think it makes my other products absorb faster. It has ceramides and matrixyl so I'm very excited for those longterm effects as well :D

tezzsong

I recommend who has sensitive skin! My friend loves this one!!!

leolouie

I've only been using this toner for about a week or so, but I really think everyone needs to give this a try, especially if you have dehydrated skin or live in a dry climate. It's incredibly hydrating and soothing, and I can literally see it filling out fine lines with just a few layers. It also makes my serums I put over it penetrate so nicely and I've actually been able to swap out my hydrating serum for other products to target other concerns because I don't need any more hydration after using this. So worth it!
