The Hydrium Watery Toner from Cosrx is for all skin types and is said to provide long-lasting hydration and soothed and dewy skin.
Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Allantoin, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Pentylene Glycol, Sodium hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate
The Hydrium Watery Toner has 6 types of hyaluronic acid for long-lasting hydration. Glycerin is a humectant. 1,2-Hexanediol is a preservative and moisture-binding ingredient. Panthenol (also known as B5) has moisturizing, regenerating and anti-inflammatory properties. Allantoin is soothing to the skin.
Directions: After cleansing, use a cotton pad to swipe away any cleanser residue, pat on the skin with fingers or cotton pad, mist on the skin throughout the day when skin is feeling dry, or soak a cotton pad and let sit on dry areas for a few minutes like a sheet mask. I like to use these toner mates.
I have combination skin, more on the oily side in the summer, and prone to congestion. I have dry areas as I am using Retin-A. I have been using the Hydrium toner in the morning and evening after cleansing for a couple months now. I apply to a cotton pad and swipe over the skin to get rid of any cleanser residue and then pat the toner on the skin and mist with mineral water.
The toner has a water-like consistency and no scent. It applies smoothly and absorbs quickly. There is no sticky or tacky feeling on the skin. The skin feels hydrated and soothed; I would not say that it looks dewy, however.
I generally like the Cosrx Hydrium Watery Toner, particularly for hydration. If looking for a toner that is more calming and soothing to the skin, while providing moisture, I would recommend the Soon Jung Relief Toner (which I will likely go back to after I run out of the Hydrium Toner). I like mixing the Relief Toner with The Ordinary’s Marine Hyaluronics.
