Review | Pyunkang Yul – Essence Toner Mini



The Pyunkang Yul Essence toner is a lightweight, non-sticky, and highly concentrated toner that removes leftover dirt and makeup residue while leaving skin firm and highly moisturized.

The toner is infused with 90% astragalus membranaceus root extract for skin hydration and hydroxyethyl cellulose, arginine for better skin texture.

About the brand: Pyunkang Yul was established in March 2016 by Pyunkang Korean Medicine Hospital, an institution known for treating atopic skin disorders. Adhering to a philosophy of holistic body wellness, Pyunkang Yul believes healthy skin is attained by maintaining its oil and moisture balance. The brand avoids unnecessary chemical substances in its products, using only natural ingredients that are most gentle on the skin.


Astragalus Membranaceus (Huang Qi) Root Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Butylene Glycol, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Carbomer, Arginine

How to use:
Dispense a moderate amount on a cotton pad and gently wipe from the inner to the outer part of the face.


  • Amazing absorption and moisture
  • Highly concentrated essence
  • It creates a highly firm and revitalized skin after use.

Texture & Scent: Lightweight texture and does not have any scent.

My Experience: I will say it is one of the best hydrating toners I have used. My skin looks well hydrated and soft for the whole day after use. I really like the benefits I got from it after using it.

But, I will say that it is really not for me. My skin is reacting to one of its ingredients. After using for a few days I noticed that my skin feels itchy and really uncomfortable for the whole day till I wash my face. At first, I was not sure it was the toner since it was the only one I introduced to my routine at that time, I decided to try it alone and then I discovered it was really the cause of my skin irritation.

Recommendation: Mixed thought about this. You might have to use it to decide if it works for you or not.
