this is okay

I haven't seen any major changes after 3 weeks but it absorbs easily and hydrates the skin pretty well. I hope it shows more results. It works well as a daytime serum/essence under make up altho it tends to clump a little when I layer two or three coats of it.

No effect for me

I have been looking for an SKII dupe for so long, so I was hoping this would be a cheaper substitute. But this had no significant effect on my skin. It didn't break me out, but it didn't deliver for me. So i'll be sticking to my SKII for the meantime.

I’ve only had this for two weeks but I swear I saw a difference after using it. My skin seems to be brighter and take the serums and oils I use a little better. I’m excited to keep using it and see if my skin improves any more!!!!!!!!! I think it will take more time to see if it actually helps with hyperpigmentation

Favourite skincare

This is one of my favorite steps in my skincare routine. I am on my second bottle of this, and I will definitely rebuy it when I run out. It is thin and light but very soothing and hydrating. This keeps my skin very calm and helps me look more even and luminous.

top toner for me

This is a top toner for me, though maybe better described as a serum or essence. It keeps my skin looking smooth and moisturized, and it's a nice neutralizing effect on my acne-prone skin. I think toner in a spray bottle is genius. You don’t neeed to spill it on your hands or use a cotton pad. As for the product it does it’s job. No complaints

thicker than water/toner/typical essences

People probably only come to know of the COSRX Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence only when they are looking for SK-II Facial Treatment Essence dupes, however this product is so much more than the Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate (which it has more of). It contains other great ingredients including niacinamide, which together has been working well on my oily skin. The product comes in a frosted clear bottle and the product dispenses as a clear liquid that is thicker than water/toner/typical essences but still very spreadable. The product absorbs very quickly and my skin is left very smooth and happy!
