REVIEW | SWANICOCO FERMENTATION SNAIL CARE TONER


A dry and flaky skin has always been a big problem and challenge for me, especially during the winter season. And what's tougher for me is to find a good product that is also for sensitive skin.
Surfing the net to find products that are specified for dry and sensitive skin, I came across to this Korean brand that is specialized to bio-fermentation cosmetics, so I started to follow them on Instagram and read so many positive reviews regarding their products. Then I saw a post from their account that they have a programme in which they allow their followers to participate and try their products, and so I applied and I am really thankful for being one of them - and especially from May who has contacted me.



And today, I'm here to talk about Swanicoco, which started off its business by creating naturally fermented soaps.To produce excellent natural soaps, they carefully select the best medicinal herbs, boil them, and then ferment them. Currently, they are the top natural cosmetics company in the Republic of Korea. Thanks to their corporate philosophy that only those obtained from nature, and not artificial chemical products, are the best. Moreover, they put foremost priority on obtaining high-quality ingredients, engage in ceaseless bio development research to create a natural bio system, and relentlessly accept challenges. Furthermore, they always keep a beginner’s mind to create products as though they are for our own family.

In this blog post, I will be reviewing their Fermentation Snail Care Toner.



PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Swanicoco Skin Expert One Step Fermentation Snail Care Skin Toner is packed with powerful ingredients such as snail secretion filtrate, hydrolyzed collagen and camellia sinesis leaf extract. These main ingredients help fade away dark spots, heals any blemishes, nourishes skin with amino acids to repair skin cells and protect skin from pollution and environmental stressors.
This hydrating toner is filled with essential ferments such as rice, mushrooms including Chinese herbs and ginseng. Collagen also helps skin maintain its elasticity and bounce, making it appear more youthful. Ferments are crucial in promoting good bacteria to maintain skin health and digestion of other skincare products.



PACKAGING


The brand's packaging is a simple cardboard box yet there is so many information printed on it, from the picture above, information regarding the product and company is printed on it.


At the top part of the box, you can see the company's logo.


On this part of the box, there's a question where it says, "내 피부에 맞을까?" - which means "Is it suitable for my skin?". And there's this diagram where it explains it.


On this side of the box, other details are printed including the quantity of the product.


On this side of the box, there are some precautions when using it.





The product's packaging comes in a sturdy plastic bottle.
On the front and back part, details about the product and company are printed on it.



And this is the first time for me to use a toner where there is a pump to take the product from the packaging - and I really like it because it will reduce the product's leakage.



Inside the product's packaging box, there is more information about the product itself, and I like that they printed the information about it in both English and Korean.

The first 4 ingredients - in my opinion, are the best part of this product as they act as an emollient, soothing, smoothing, brightening, effective in removing dead skin cells, tightening pore and skin conditioning agent



MY OPINION


The product's texture is quite thicker compared to other toners because they are more liquid but this one is less liquid and a little bit powdery - I think because the texture is a little bit more concentrated compared to other toners.
There is a delicate scent and it's not bothering at all for my sensitive skin as it fades immediately.
I was worried that I might feel some tingling sensations - which always happen when I change toners - and to my surprise, my skin loved it immediately the first time I used it. No tingling sensations and it calmed the redness on my cheeks.
I usually use three pumps of the product, when I started to use this one, I tried to apply it first on a cotton pad, but it was a wrong idea as the cotton pad absorbed most of the product. So I decided to use the palm of my hand and dab it to my face.
I have been using it for more than 2 weeks from now and I never had any skin breakouts. The redness on my skin is soothed - and every time I use it, my skin feels refresh. I also noticed that it has brightened my complexion.



RATING


What I really like about this product is that it never gave me any tingling and tightening sensations while applying it. It is easily absorbed by my skin and it soothes the redness of it.
I highly recommend it if you have tingling sensations when you apply toners - and I will surely buy this product once I find some resellers that ship to Italy.



Thank you for visiting my blog, until to the next post again!
