Toner is almost everyone’s favourite step to skip in their basic skincare routine. Although cleansing and moisturising might seem like the two most crucial skincare step, a toner can help prep your skin to better absorb that moisturiser. Besides, a toner removes excess dirt and chemical residue from your cleansers, apart from hydrating your skin.
Typically, about 90% of you will soak a cotton ball or pad with toner before wiping your face down. That’s the right way of getting rid of extra dirt, but you are not making use of its hydrating capabilities. You can always follow up with the splashing method, but the more effective way to hydrate your face is through toner masking.
What is toner masking?
Traditionally, beauty junkies will paste their faces with toner-soaked cotton pads for up to five minutes. It can be a tedious process, hence why Japanese Beauty brand, Lululun, designed a daily toner mask pack to ease this toning method with additional beauty benefits!
Structured for deep-skin masking
Made with 100% cotton and microfibre, this sheet mask has a three-layer structure. Its middle layer locks in the toner, while the two outer layers support the toner penetration into our skin. This makes the absorption rate higher by 65% as compared to other regular masks in the market. It allows the toner to reach into the deeper, inner layers of our skin when we leave them on for the recommended 10 minutes.
According to Lululun, the moisture can stay on the skin for three hours longer compared to wiping it with a cotton pad. Also, the sheet mask is stretchable, so it can better fit our face and the corner of our eyes.
The Sake Lees and Fermented Glucosyl in the ingredients work to help moisturise your skin, preventing dryness and dehydration. Besides, there’s also Rice Barn Oil and Tsubaki Seed Oil that can minimise dryness and smooth out rough skin patches. Additionally, Ferulic Acids and powerful antioxidants in the toner can help absorbs UV light that can cause skin cancer.
This mask can even out rough skin patches with the avocado and apricot oil in its ingredient. Also, the Double Hyaluronic Acid work to stimulate collagen and elastin production, reducing the size and visibility of fine lines and wrinkles.
