Happy weekend readers! This week’s theme is Etude House. To start off, Im going to review my current toner from the brand. Im glad I found out they’re cruelty-free! Whew! now I dont have to update my routine. Etude House is my first love in Korean brands. I think if you ask a lot of Filipino kpop fans, this is the first brand that they have tried. Probably because 2NE1’s Dara was their endorser. She was an actress in the Philippines before.😊

It has undertone alcohol scent. I do not expect that it’ll permanently tighten my pores. It does tighten them but it’s just temporary for me. I have extremely oily skin and I have large pores. Im realistic about it. I have to wait until I get older for my pores to naturally become smaller /change shape. I can feel that it doesn’t hydrate my skin 100%. Don’t rely on toners alone. Apply a moisturizer after even if you have oily skin.
Overall, it’s a good toner for me. My facial cleanser tightens my skin and this toner gives moisture. It’s a decent product that prepares my skin for the next step. There’s no tight feeling and no sting at all. My extremely sensitive & oily skin approves this. 🙂
