Benefits of using toner pads

  • Cleanse the face: Korean toner pads can be used as a final cleanser. With this product, you can eliminate double cleansing and just focus on keeping your face light. All you need to do is put toner pads on the area where your skin feels dirty. Leave it for 5-10 minutes. End by gently rubbing the pad on your face. 
  • Balancing the skin’s pH: The toner pads are designed to balance the skin's pH. This helps in neutralising the effects of pollution and dirt on our face. It also prevents irritation, redness and dryness.
  • Exfoliation: For people who cannot exfoliate their face due to sensitivity, a gentle toner pad with mild AHAs and BHAs can be of great use. All you need to do is use toner pads with ingredients like Salicylic acid, and Hyaluronic acid. Put them on your skin for 5-10 minutes.
