REVIEW: Yadah Cactus Toner Pads

What exactly is toner?

Toner is the first step (after cleansing) in the Korean skincare routine. It is normally a water-like liquid that delivers some hydration while helping remove dead cells off the surface of the skin. Toner acts as a primer to prep your skin to absorb your skincare products. Korean skincare products have many great toner options for all different skin types!

Just think of your skin as (dry) soil. If you pour lots of water all of a sudden, the soil won’t absorb all of it as it is not “prepped”. But if you slowly wet the soil, it will sink in the moisture more easily.



Who should use toner?

Everyone should use toner! But it is especially beneficial for those with oily skin, are prone to acne, have dry skin or wear makeup, because toner helps moisten, clean out pores and remove excess oil.


How to use toner?

First, make sure your face is cleansed. Immediately after drying your face, you can either tap toner directly onto your hands, or you can use a cotton pad to gently swipe it around the face. The Yadah Cactus Toner Pad is a pre-moistened cotton pad that is ready for use! Simply grab a pre-moistened pad and swipe your face.

Using a toner prior to using a sheet mask is a great way to making sure the skin is prepared to take on all the goodness from the sheet masks!


What’s so great about the Yadah Cactus Toner?

First off, its ingredients. This toner is made with clean products and is certified Vegan. Its main ingredient is Jeju Palm Cactus Extract (scientifically, Opuntia Ficus-Indica Stem Extract), which is known to be rich in anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants and it will help soothe your skin. (If you want to see why antioxidants are important, read here).

It also includes the following ingredients we love:

Opuntia Ficus-Indica Stem Extract: A source of antioxidant that helps in reducing signs of sensitized skin

Panthenol: Improves skin hydration and reduces inflammation

Allantoin: Increases skin's moisture absorption

Glycerin: Attracts moisture to skin making it soft and supple


And lastly, it is SO simple to use! It is already pre-moistened in the gentlest of cotton pads just waiting for you to use!
