Thursday 31 January 2019

Toner pads! I honestly don't know what's the generic term for this product but that's what I'm calling all the toners or liquids that come with cotton pads and usually packaged in tubs. The first toner pad I've got is a sister product to this number from the brand COSRX and it's one of those products that took me the longest to finish as I'm not an acne-prone person but beginning mid last year where I turned 30, I've noticed that some of facial area has started to become dry and flaky; thanks to episodes of allergic reactions but even after more than 6 months, the dry area doesn't seems to improve as much as I want to hence I'm looking for a solution/product that can help with the dryness at the same time doesn't irritate my skin (unlike abrasive physical scrubs or cleansing brush) in the process.

At this point, I know an exfoliating toner that usually contain AHA, BHA even PHA (gentle acids) can actually do that but I'm still looking for one that still offer hydration and peeling off i.e. exfoliate the dead skin cells gently. If you aren't familiar with acids in skincare, here's article that I found recently. Now that you know where I stand when it comes to gentle acids in skincare,  let's go to basic details of this product!

COSRX One Step Green Hero Calming Pad

Swipe the embossing side across the face avoiding eye area after cleansing. Swipe the softer side across the face to pick up the remaining debris. Replace the lid tightly to make sure the pads stay wet and clean.

  • Centella Asiatica Extract - skin texture improving, soothing
  • Witch Hazel Extract - soothing, hydrating
  • Tea Tree Leaf Extract - sebum & pore care
  • Mugwort Extract - soothing, vitality care 

Now, let's talk about the packaging!

Same as its sister products, this one too came in a box with similar design; the illustration of Mr. RX on top lid of the box with photo of the front elevation of the tub printed at the front part of the box.


At one side of the box, there's the ingredients list, instruction on how to use and more information printed while the period-after-opening (PAO) symbol is printed at the bottom of the box which indicates the product is to be used within 12 months after opening.

The toner pads came within the above sturdy, opaque white tub with a screw lid.


There's the expiration date printed at the bottom of tub and the format is YYYY.MM.DD so that's 12th November 2021. There's simple product description and instruction printed at the side of the tub as well.

There's also the white product seal that need to be taken off before using the product. No product seal? I'd suggest for you to return the product ASAP!

As I took the photo before using the product, you can see that the 70 pads are almost reaching the top of the tub. Don't you just love it when all the pads are still nicely arranged like that? I have found other products that came with disarranged pads and that's just unsightly. The toner is actually green in colour and there's only little of it left at the bottom of the tub to be absorbed.



The two sides of the pad is totally different; there's the embossed side of the pad where I usually wipe my whole facial area with and there's the smooth side of the pad where I tap my facial area with for the excess toner in it.

As you can see, there's definitely impurities/residues getting caught in there. I'd say this toner-soaked pads are not irritating even to my sensitive facial area; cheeks and jawline. There's a faint scent to it but I can't determine what's the scent is.

Overall, I do like it very much! I can't help when it's too easy to use and I kept reaching for it (which means both my morning and evening skincare routines) ever since I've got it! The toner is so soothing and surely toned down my redness to almost none. I also use couple of the toner pads as point mask; placing each of the pad on my cheeks for like 5 minutes before wiping off my whole facial area, neck, at the back of my ear and chest area. I sometimes place the whole tub in my refrigerator in the morning and use them for my evening routine. 

Now that I have all three of these toner pads, I'm using the One Step Moisture Up Pad (contains Hyaluronic Acid, propolis and natural BHA) in the morning while the One Step Original Clear Pad (contains betaine salicylate; a type of BHA and willow bark water; salicylic acid, also type of BHA) in the evening and this One Step Green Hero Calming Pad (contains 75% green tea, 10% Green-RX Complex and 0.25% PHA; Lactobionic Acid) in either of my routine especially when my skin is feeling irritated. I always use either of these pad toners right after cleansing and then proceed with my hydrating toner and the rest of skincare routine.

I know people with dry and sensitive skin would appreciate this product and love to have this in their skincare stash but if you're one of those who are a little bit sceptic, please refer this cosDNA page for your further reading. I gotta point out that almost all ingredients are rated 1 with Glycerine rated 2 when it comes to safety. 

Also, if you're familiar with unpa (beauty SNS platform with almost 2 million downloads) then you should know that this product is one of the winner for Pad Category. This product is also currently ranked at no.14 (best at no. 2) for Mask/Pack Category on Hwahae (beauty SNS platform with almost 4 million downloads)! Speaking of which, I wonder when can we have reliable English beauty SNS platform like these two?
