Skin Type: Combination.
Today, I will be reviewing another product from the Innisfree White Tone Up Range – the toner. I have previously reviewed the Innisfree White Tone Up Eye Serum, which I absolutely loved, as well as the Innisfree White Tone Up Sleeping Pack. The White Tone Up range uses berry extracts to revitalize and brighten up the skin. Read on to know how this product fared for me.
INR 1250 for 200 ml.
A whitening toner containing 5 active ingredients extracted from pure berries.
1. Pure berry extract: Pure berry extract, a great source of vitamin C, has an outstanding whitening and exfoliating effect. The melanin-controlling properties of B3 derivatives brighten dull skin.
2. Brightens dull skin: The grape seed oil in the product provides moisture and nutrients to the skin while enhancing the skin’s natural shine.
3. Jeju green complex: The Jeju green complex consists of green tea, tangerine, cactus, camellia leaves, and orchids to keep your skin healthy.
The ingredients of note include niacinamide, squalene, extracts from five types of berries and coffee extract.
My Experience with Innisfree White Tone Up Skin:
The product comes in an off-white packaging. The bottle is quite sturdy and has a very minimalistic design, which I find very chic. The bottle is translucent; hence the amount of product left can be monitored.
On opening, the white screw on cap, it further has a white plastic dispenser with a small perforation. Just like the Innisfree Olive Real Skin Toner, I prefer pump packaging as dispensing the product is less messy and the amount of product to be dispensed can be controlled.
The colour of the toner is pale white and looks like milk. The texture also resembles milk as it is quite watery and runny. The fragrance is quite floral and reminds me of slightly of daisies. I am not a big fan of the strong fragrance.
Coming to the actual application of the product, I like to apply this toner by soaking it in cotton balls and swiping it over my face rather than applying it directly. This ensures that I do not apply excess of it in certain regions of my face. The toner feels very hydrating and sinks into my skin within seconds. The texture being non greasy, does not leave my skin oily, rather it leaves a slight sheen to my face, which I don’t mind. The fragrance lingers for a while, or until I move onto the next step of skincare. Although it feels very hydrating, it does not feel refreshing. I feel this product would work better in brightening my skin if I keep the product refrigerated.
I have been using it in conjunction with products from the same line, to help reduce the pigmentation on my face. In the initial weeks, it did seem to work and helped to keep my skin bright, but after a while, the dullness returned. On its own, I feel that it does not provide additional brightening or rejuvenating effects, but works well as a toner for my combination skin. I feel that this product might work for people who have minor pigmentation, but for me, it does not do what it claims anymore.
Pros of Innisfree White Tone Up Skin:
- Non-greasy texture.
Cons of Innisfree White Tone Up Skin:
- Added fragrance, might not suit everyone.
- Not suitable for oily skin.
- Does not provide instant refreshing or brightening effect.
- Packaging not very hygienic.
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Innisfree White Tone Up Skin?
No, I would not repurchase this toner; I would rather try more products from Innisfree. I would not recommend this to people who are looking to clear out heavy pigmentation on their faces because it might not work for them. For me, it was not a miracle product – it was a basic toner.
