Long before I had a blog, I was already obsessed with kbeauty toners. I don’t know why, but it’s the skincare step that I absolutely love, and so I enjoy testing out new formulas. One of my current favorites is Vegreen Alcohol-Free Nature Mucin Toner. It’s available on the brand’s official Amazon and eBay storefronts, as well as Oshen Skin (use KBHOBBIT10 for a discount).
Vegreen is a new-to-me brand (and a newer brand to the market in general). The name comes from the synergy of “vegetable” and “green”. All of their products are vegan and cruelty free, meaning they do not contain any animal ingredients and are not tested on animals. The brand takes steps to make sure the packaging is easy to recycle, including using simple to remove labels, soybean oil ink, and earth pack boxes. Watch my unboxing reel here.
Kbeauty is known for their use of snail mucin, and until now I have never seen an alternative to that. Of course, there are other ingredients with similar benefits, but this is the first time I have seen vegan mucin, specifically. Vegreen derives its phyto mucin from wild yams instead of snails.
In addition to the phyto mucin, Vegreen toner also contains five kinds of hyaluronic acid to plump, centella asiatica to soothe, and panthenol to help support healthy skin barrier functions.
How to use:
Apply after cleansing (best if the skin is still damp)
Follow with the rest of your routine (essence, serum, moisturizer, etc)
More than one layer can be used for extra hydration
The texture is thick but not sticky, definitely thicker than water. The closest well-known comparisons I can think of are Purito I’m From Green Toner and Klairs Supple Prep toner. There’s no scent (yay). For the fans of the 7 skin methods, when one applies up to 7 layers of a hydrating toner, you will likely only need 2-3 layers of the Vegreen one. It’s that hydrating!
I’m somewhat spoiled when it comes to skincare. Ok, I’m very spoiled. I get to try lots of brands and products at all kinds of price points. In four years of being heavily interested in kbeauty, dozens of toners went through my hands (and onto my face).
This one is a good one. I love everything from the brand values to the quality of the product. Because to be honest, no matter how nice the marketing sounds, I still won’t actually use the brand offerings if they aren’t good or don’t work for my skin.
The Vegreen toner can be used in the morning or evening. I typically only do it in the evening, because my morning routine is super basic and short. In the evenings, I have a lot more time to devote to slathering various things on my skin.
I have combination skin with oily and dry areas. The Nature Mucin toner hydrates well and plumps my fine lines without causing any congestion issues for the oilier zones. I also love it on the delicate neck and chest areas. I’ve noticed increased hydration, a healthy glow, and overall better appearance of the skin. Most of the time, I use it in conjunction with my other Vegreen products (more reviews later - stay tuned), but it also plays well with other brands. And if you messed up and accidentally over-exfoliated or otherwise compromised your skin, then this could be the soothing non-irritating solution to your problems (always patch test if you have a compromised skin barrier).
Overall, a great start to getting to know this brand.
Have you tried anything by Vegreen? What did you think? I expect it to be popping up on social media more and more. News travels fast these days.
