I Replaced My Morning Wash With SanDaWha Liposome Skin Softener

When one K-Beauty Squad member found even a morning face wash too drying for her skin, she replaced it with SanDaWha Liposome Skin Softener.

About the product

What Is It:


When is a toner more than a toner? When it’s SanDaWha Liposome Skin Softener!
This pH-balancing skin softener sets the tone for your whole day, or night! It refreshes and hydrates skin in the morning and helps remove any lingering traces of makeup and dirt after cleansing in the evening. No other toner can soothe, plump, and hydrate your skin quite like SanDaWha Liposome Skin Softener. This Skin Softener is an essential step in prepping your skin for the rest of your skincare routine and any following treatments such as serums or acids. Rich in camellia flower extract and over 30 herbal extracts and oils, the number of skincare superstar ingredients has to be seen to be believed (really, click the ingredients)! This hydrating toner also provides skin with an antioxidant jumpstart to fight free radical damage from UV rays and pollution. Its lightweight texture and barely-there natural scent (no artificial fragrances, dyes, or preservatives in this one!) will make the toning step of your skincare regimen a pure joy, like a healthy drink for the skin.
SanDaWha Liposome Skin Softener is infused with a multitude of skin brightening botanicals such as Liquorice Root Extract and Camellia Sinesis Leaf Extract. It’s also packed to the brim with anti-inflammitories like Bisabolol and Centella Asiatica Extract. It’s perfect for any skin type and its lack of heavy scent makes it ideal for sensitive noses. TheSanDaWha Liposome Skin Softener is veritable dream blend of hydration, brightening, and soothing. We predict that this might just be your next holy grail!


Our insight:


A hydrating toner is a vital part of any skincare regimen. It balances skin’s pH after cleansing and preps skin to better absorb serums and essences. The watery texture of this milky skin softener makes it easy to apply and easy for skin to absorb. For a real treat, try the 3 skin method for the ultimate in hydration.
The SanDaWha Liposome Skin Softener really is more than a toner for our contributing editor Coco Park. Read how she incorporates it into her own routine here.

How do I love this stuff? Oh let me count the ways. This is a must holy grail for me. It is light. It is effective. Perfect start to my skin care regimen (after double cleanse of course). It just seems to get my skin ready to accept everything that comes after. It soaks into my skin quickly so not a lot of dry down time. I use this before my active.

I have read and tried not washing my face in the morning (article above) - just rinse and use this product. Yes it is effective and can... Read more

I really wanna try this product but how to use it should i leave it after applying or should i wipe it off with cotton can someone help me out in which way it works better??

mariposa

Leave it on, it's meant to sink into the skin! You can apply it with cotton if you want, but I just use my hands so I don't waste any product.

mounikakote

Thank you so muchh for responding 😊

Hello
I currently use cosrx vitamin c, cosrx bha and cosrx aha every night, one after another (with 10-15 minutes waiting time in between). My question is, when should I incorporate this toner? I ask because this seems to be be thicker than my actives which are more watery.

annapark

I apply my acids right after I wash my face (on clean, dry skin), and then I apply my toner. You're right, this one is a thicker toner and it feels heavenly after your face has been soaking in acids for 15-30 minutes!

moldita2002

Thank you very much. I thought that might be the right order. 🤗😊

I'm a toner/essence fanatic and this one is one of the best. I love the smell, texture, and the effect it has on my skin. It evens out redness, softens, calms, and makes my skin feel healthier. Plus the ingredient list is amazing. I think all skin types would enjoy this, barring those with sensitivities to citrus extracts and essential oils. I generally use at least three layers of this, depending on my mood, and it layers beautifully under all my other skincare. I'm currently using some other toners at the moment but I'll definitely come back to this in... Read more

Feels so good on my dry skin!! Sometimes I layer 7 times and wow does it feel plump and hydrated, all before I even apply the rest of my products.

I’ve been using a few pumps of this day and night and my skin has never felt plumper, softer or smoother!! It’s great for layering and sinks in quickly without leaving and residue stickiness. Has been my HG toner throughout winter!

alixiepoobear

Lots of layers sink in quickly with little stickiness and so many antioxidants, it’s a great protector!

michellebelle

This is a very refreshing and hydrating product that is perfect for all skin types. Initially I saw it was a milky texture and thought it might be heavy but it manages to be incredibly light with no stickiness but also very hydrating and soothing. My skin feels velvety soft and very plump after using this and I also noticed my tone is improved. It smells mildly of citrus which is very fresh and bright and perfect for using in the morning!

mariposa

I've been using this for a while now and I love it! I will definitely repurchase. It's thicker than some toners but sinks in quickly and seems to boost the absorption and effects of the products I use after it. I also love the scent, the beautiful glass bottle, the convenient pump as mentioned by the previous reviewer... It's perfect, basically! I've only been doing 1 or 2 layers but I'll probably try even more layers during the winter.

This was my first SanDaWha product and I will definitely be trying more! Next up are the lotion and essence that I... Read more
