My Thoughts on COSRX Cica Toner

Swipe left for more pictures:


Ingredients
Looking into the full ingredient list of COSRX Pure Fit Cica Toner, it's key ingredients are Centella Asiatica which is the same as the rest of the products in the range. Other than that, it contains Bark Extract which is known as a natural anti-inflammatory ingredient. This toner also contains Panthenol, Glycerin and Allantoin which all are great for those with sensitive skin.


Packaging
Looking at the packaging, it reminds me of pharmaceutical products, usually the type of drugs our doctors prescribe with. LOL.. Since it comes with a screw cap, it certainly serves well without any experience of spills but still, I wish it came with a flip cap. It'll be so much easier to use in the routine.

This semi-transparent white plastic bottle does look cute since it's short and fat but it's a bit bulky when added to my vanity, so I'll prefer a taller and slimmer bottle so it could save a bit of space.


Texture
It's very watery just like water and non-sticky either. The absorbency rate is very fast as well which makes me love pouring the toner on my palms and pat it in. It sinks in the skin almost instantly and leaves a nice hydrating feel to the skin which makes up for the dry feeling the Pure Cica Cleanser creates after a wash.


Scent-Wise
Similar to its Cica Pads, this toner doesn't have much scent to it too.


Experience
It serves just as other toners. I did not experience any irritations or redness while using it nor do I feel that this toner is a game-changer. To me, this toner functions well in helping soothing the skin and restore back hydration to the skin. It doesn't last long, just enough to help prep the skin before adding other layers of skincare.


Overall Thoughts
To me, the COSRX Pure Fit Cica Toner is a great soothing toner to prep the skin. It's a good option for those with acne-prone or sensitive skin to use it combined with a much stronger serum afterwards. It does have a great absorbency rate and the ingredients look promising as well.



My Rate
Rate: 4/5
Repurchase: Maybe if it was on sale
