iUNIK Vitamin Hyaluronic Acid Vitalizing Toner features 45% hyaluronic acid and 5% hippophae rhamnoides (sea buckthorn) fruit extract to hydrate and brighten the skin. It’s available on YesStyle (reward code KBHOBBIT), Stylevana (code INF10KBH), and iHerb (code CWN6107).
Sea buckthorn is a well known healing ingredient and when I was little, we had a sea buckthorn tree. I was in charge of harvesting the elusive orange berries, then my mom and grandma made all kinds of things out of them, including concoctions for the skin. It’s not a super popular ingredient in the USA, but it definitely strikes all of the nostalgic chords for me.
In addition to sea buckthorn, this toner contains RESMELIN H, a patented plant extract with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It can even help minimize damage caused by UV rays.
How to use
Apply after cleansing
Gently pat in
Follow with the rest of your routine
The toner has a thick-ish texture - definitely thicker than water but not quite a gel. I notice a slight, amazingly pleasant scent that disappears almost immediately.
“Lucy, how come the bottle of toner in your pictures is half empty?”. Great question! When I was a brand new blogger, I tried to review every single product I bought or got as PR. Well, I can no longer do that. I only have one face and there are more new releases and old favorites than I can reasonably test. Still, I love trying new things. Going through my piles of unopened tubes and jars, I noticed that this iUNIK toner expires later this year. Instead of doing proper pictures and so on, I simply opened it and started using it. I didn’t expect much, just a hydrating toner. Well… I LOVE IT. And I wanted to review it. And that’s how these half empty pictures happened.
I have combination skin with an oily t-zone and dry-to-normal cheeks. My morning routine is simple and nothing special, but at night I like to layer lots of hydration and seal everything in with a nice moisturizer. I absolutely love applying iUNIK vitalizing toner because of its texture. It plumps my skin up almost instantly and the effect lasts well into the morning. I put this on the face, neck, and chest several times a week. Definitely a lovely hydrating product. I can’t speak to the brightening claims, because I use stronger products for brightening (vitamin C serums and so on).
This is definitely on my current faves list and I bet people with dry skin will love it even more than I do.
