KLAVUU Green Pearlsation PHA Calming Toner is a gentle exfoliating product to help balance sebum production and reduce the appearance of pores. It features PHA, tea tree, hyaluronic acid, and a Green Complex unique to Klavuu. The toner is available on Oshen Skin, and you can save on your order with my code KBHOBBIT10.

How to use:
Apply to the face after cleansing using a cotton pad or hands (I use hands)
Gently pat in
Could be used as a DIY mask - soak cotton pads in the toner and apply to the skin for 10-15 minutes. Remove the pads, pat in, and follow with the rest of your routine (pro tip - don’t over soak the pads you will apply to the forehead, because they can drip into your eyes. Don’t ask me how I know that…).
I like to apply mine after cleansing in the evenings, let it work for a few minutes, then follow with the rest of my routine. Sometimes I will use a thicker hydrating toner as well, and other times will go straight to a serum.
In addition to the exfoliating PHA, Klavuu Calming Toner contains Korean pearl extract to brighten the complexion and even Cacao butter to help protect the skin from irritants. The consistency is light and watery - there is no sticky residue. The toner is made without alcohol, artificial colors, sulfates or animal products. I do notice a natural scent, probably from the tea tree, but it doesn’t linger.
I’m a recovering picker - you’d never know, because I’m lucky or unlucky enough to never have visible marks left behind by the next day. However, play with snakes and you’ll eventually get bit, so I’m trying to stop. I used to think that squeezing sebaceous filaments - those naturally occurring little dots on the skin - was somehow beneficial or “clearing” out my skin. However, that’s not the case. They will simply refill, sometimes as soon as the next day, and messing with them manually only increases the chance for infection, irritation, and scarring. Now I focus on gentle leave-on exfoliating products to get to the root of the issue - normalizing oil production.
KLAVUU Green Pearlsation PHA Calming Toner is a good leave-on gentle exfoliation product that helps my pores appear smaller. My combination skin isn’t sensitive, but a quick look at online reviews showed me that a lot of people with sensitive skin can tolerate this well. With that said, a patch test and slow introduction of any new product is always a good idea. I also apply this to my legs to help minimize ingrown hairs and help with the existing spots / irritation. Overall, definitely worth a try if you are in need of an exfoliating product and are sensitive to brands that add fragrance or more robust exfoliators.
