I have been so excited to share this toner but I wanted to give it a decent amount of time under testing. But from my first impression I’ve liked this product and my love for it just keeps growing every day I use it.
Galactomy Clearnskin Toner is a pH balancing toner that is hydrating, mildly exfoliating, and infused with the muti-functional powerhouse Galactomyces ferment filtrate. (what? find out here)
Manyo Factory is a lesser known but still relatively popular Korean brand that delivers high quality, simple, effective, concentrated, natural products. They don’t formulate with a lot of common irritants and always load up on key ingredients.
I love this stuff because well… It’s so gentle! So gentle I can remove heavy duty chemical exfoliators with it and it’s still incredibly soothing. My favorite part has to be the consistency. Many hydrating toners I’ve tried leave my skin sticky don’t leave it feeling entirely clean. This is based with Mineral water and Galacta so it’s perfect. It feels just like water. I also like that it’s in a spray, I can either spritz onto cotton pads or all over then wipe. Whichever way, the spray bottle works the best.
Here’s a breakdown of the great ingredient list:
Mineral Water, Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Extract(Smoothing, softening), Chamaecyparis Obtusa(Hinoki cypress)(moisturizing) Water, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract(hydrating), Centella Asiatica Extract(soothing), Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract(BHA/exfoliating), Lactic Acid(AHA/exfoliating), Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit(Japanese Pepper) Extract(antioxidant/protection), Pulsatilla Koreana Extract , Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water(Soothing), Sea Water, Potassium Hydroxide(conditioning), Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract (BHA,exfoliating) Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract(antioxidant/protection), Rosa Damascena Flower Oil(moisturizing,scent) , Citric Acid, Malic Acid, Carica Papaya Fruit Extract(enzyme/exfoliating)
*bolded are ingredients I like to see, as you can tell, Manyo put a lot of love into this.
What I don’t like about it: it has rose oil in it. It’s a small complaint but some people complain more about it. *shrug* NBD
