Review: Etude House Skin Mal:gem Smoother

Hi everyone! Today I'm going to review about a toner called Skin Mal:gem in Smoother type from Etude House ^^

Actually, there are 6 types in this range :

Though I have an oily skin, but I chose the 'Smoother' type, not the 'Fresh' one, because I heard that this product is good for trouble prone & sensitive skin like mine. And I bought it for IDR. 159.000. (^~^)

[Mal:gem] - The Korean word for cleanness, clarity and pureness.
Skin Malgeum hypoallergenic toners promote clean, clear and pure complexion with moisturizing and pore cleansing formulas.

Smoother - Fruit acids in green grape, exfoliate keratin on a skin clearly for keeping smooth and soft skin.

I hope you can read the directions, the caution and the ingredients above clearly~
Well.. this toner is free from paraben, mineral oil, and animal material, but unfortunately it still contains alcohol. (≧д≦)

There are several ways to use this toner. It could be use as a toner, eye mask, face mask or facial mist. (^ε^)♪

This toner comes inside a translucent plastic bottle and contains 250ml. It's big enough for me (and also for my mom lol (≧▽≦) ).

This toner is watery and colorless. It's not sticky, very easy to absorb in my skin, and it doesn't have a cooling effect like other toners. Oh it also smells so good~! ( ̄∀ ̄)

Until now, I use this product only as a toner in the evening after cleansing and before applying my night cream.
Honestly, at first I used it twice a day (in the morning & evening) but I dunno why, it made my face breakout! I'm still not sure, so I stopped to use it for a few days and I tried to use it again last week only at night and thanks God, it doesn't make me breakout again now~ (^∇^)

Love :
Smells so good and not strong.
Free from paraben and mineral oil.
Moisturizing my face very well and gives a healthy shine.

Hate :
Contains alcohol.

Overall rating :4/5 :

So, have you tried this Skin Mal:gem? If not, so what's your favorite toner now?
Please share it with me ^^
Thanks for reading, have a nice day!
