I’m 28 and have combination skin that could shine with oil or flake - never a dull moment. I usually don’t get breakouts and don’t have many wrinkles.
I like to have at least two toners in my rotation - a hydrating one for the evenings and a “I don’t like a shiny face” one in the morning. Since it’s still cold right now, even the morning toner needs to be mild, otherwise the over-dried skin will produce even more oil.
I adore Innisfree and have had great luck with just about every product that I’ve tried. So I didn’t hesitate to order their Green Persimmon Pore Toner. The product doesn’t contain alcohol, removes sebum and impurities and makes the pores visually smaller (all good things). The natural salicylic acid derived from willow bark exfoliates dead skin cells and results in a more clear, even-toned skin.
The legend (from Innisfree): “For hundreds of years, Jeju Island’s fishermen have soaked their nets and clothing in the juice of unripe persimmons because it helped make them stronger and firmer. Just as it enhances the weave of the nets and garments, we discovered that Jeju Green Persimmon also helps smooth skin’s texture, improve the look of pores and balance oily skin.” Sounds great :)

One word: AWESOME. This toner is great. If your skin is prone to oiliness but you don’t want to overdry it with alcohol-containing toners, then this one is for you. My inner hobbit is already eyeing the serum from the same line for the summer. My face stays matte all day without a tight, dry freeling. It’s very comfortable. I don’t have any particular issues with pores as it is, but they became even less noticeable. I’m thinking about talking my husband into using it since the scent is unisex (light and citrusy). The consistency is water-like, maybe a bit thicker; quick absorption. The size is generous - 200ml (6.76fl oz). Try it!
