”This gel is quite tricky to use. It can be very sticky if use incorrect way. I find scooping the gel out and dot it all over my face, then press with my palms and pat it in the skin would make it sink in better and hydrating pretty well. Might not be enough for dry skin but I can see myself using this gel more often in summer.”

I wanted to like this product so much because I love the essence toner from the same brand. I watched and read a lot of reviews about this product and everyone is saying this is unique so I purchased it. I'm not sure whose fault it was but I received this item with a cracked lid. This meant that I can't close the lid tight and also the jar had a white cast probably because the spilled liquid has dried. I brushed it off since I figured the box was sealed so I guess the product wasn't contaminated or opened before I did. The crack must have happened in the factory or in transit from Korea to PH. Anyway, regardless of the broken packaging, I am giving this three stars because I've had it for months now an I'm not sure what it does. Yes, it is very very fun to use. I just dot some product all over my face and pat it to spread. It feels so cold on the skin, like your skin just drank a cold water. It's also kinda magic that though the consistency is very thick, it is easily absorbed by the skin. It also smells like distilled water. However, I have combination skin and I observed that this doesn't really do anything for me. In fact, I always get whiteheads whenever I use this. It's like my skin couldn't breathe. This product is good as the last step of your skincare to seal everything in because it really does that: Seal EVERYTHING IN. your moisturizer and sleeping pack won't budge when you use this after. However, for the price, it's not really worth it if the purpose is just to suffocate your skin with all the products you used before this. I found myself not even using this often and just forgetting I even have this. I won't repurchase this and I now have second thoughts if I still want other Pyunkang Yul products on my wishlist.6 months ago
I love how it makes my skin really fresh. The consistency of the product is very thick but once applied it turns to this almost watery consistency and has this cool feeling on the skin. Moisturizes my whole face. My skin just love this product. Best used with Pyunkang Yul Nutrition Cream.6 months ago
The texture of this gel is really...unique. It's thick and honey-like straight from the jar, but once you spread it onto skin, it turns into a slimy, gooey texture! It was off-putting at first, but I've grown to love it. The slimy, gooey texture melts right into the skin easily once you do a little bit of patting -- and contrary to what I expected, it wasn't sticky at all! It gives me an instant glow and makes my skin super soft to the touch. It does a fine job of soothing any irritation that I have too! This contributes a lot to my skin healing well whenever I get a pimple here and there. Another hit for Pyunkang Yul!9 months ago
