Review: I was intrigued by this product when I read about it on Mischievous Mack. Tried to save money by attempting to buy it on Gmarket, but unfortunately, this product cannot be shipped overseas due to its packaging (aerosols are classified as dangerous goods). Luckily, it wasn’t too expensive in the stores. The product reminds me of silly string! But it was not silly at all… the product solidifies to form the cotton pad and can be applied to face quickly and easily. I don’t think it can save you money by replacing cotton pads because you won’t get a lot of product in one can, but you’re paying for the novel idea.
The toner is cooling and feels really nice on skin, especially after a hot and grimy day. It smells quite nice, quite like Elizabeth Arden’s green tea perfume. As you wipe the “cotton pad” around your face, it will get smaller and smaller, eventually leaving you with a small piece that cannot get any smaller, and that’s when you know you can throw the lint away. The toner dries quickly on face, and is also moisturizing so oily skinned girls may choose to skip moisturizer if they wish. Having used it 3x so far, I cannot comment on pore constriction, but it is moisturizing enough for me.
Would I buy again: Maybe… not sure if it’s value for money yet.
