    I read your review and just used the Laneige cream skin refiner. My first thoughts-texture feels good just like milk,didn’t like the packaging though..would have loved a pump dispenser as its kinda runny.
    I applied a vitamin E Moisturizer followed by beauty of joseon rice water sunscreen after this and it kinda makes my skin look dewy.
    May be I should skip the Moisturizer next time as this alone is hydrating enough. Felt it was a little pricy for a toner but it’s dual action of toner/Moisturizer makes it worthy I guess. Will update after regular usage.

    can i use it without moisturising after?

  3. Brandon says:

    Can I use Laneige cream refiner along with toners such as Thayer’s (application via cotton pad to remove gunk) and BHA (Cosrx Blackheadpower Liquid) at night? which comes first in layering?

    For daytime application, I can layer it with a sunscreen?

    I’m very new to skincare sooo help me hahahaha

    • Jenny says:

      They all serve different purposes so yes you can use them together! I’d use the Thayers first (since it sounds like you’re using it as a second cleanse almost), then BHA, and finally Laneige to add hydration.

      And yes definitely layer a sunscreen over this in the morning!

    Coz am kinda confused on how to use it.
    Am I to apply all one after the other and how to use them in sequence, its actually about 5 of them.

    I ordered this from Yesstyle, waited weeks for delivery and it arrived while I am away. Cannot wait to try Monday upon my return! Fingers crossed!

    I love Laneige products a lot. Especially their sleeping masks and always have high hopes for the amazing brand. I have not tried this toner but sounds lovely. I love the details you have included Jenny. Will have to check it out. :-)

      Unfortunately their sleeping mask didn’t work for me but I do love their lip mask! Definitely check this one out if you’re looking for a super hydrating toner!

    Glad this toner is a winner for you. Looks awesome!

  9. I gotta say, I love hyperbole, or best ever reviews – they always draw me in lol.
    Thank you for the great review as always. I’ve been considering a different toner so this is perfect timing. Although I don’t follow a glass skin routine, I’ve been curious about it and it seems maintaining good moisture is a big part of it. I love how you break down the efficacy of the ingredients. Also I am honestly considering going to Korea and going wild on skincare products though I have no idea what to start buying lol. I will have the husband pick up some Tunemakers as well on his next trip to Tokyo!

    • Jenny says:

      Lol I love exaggerated post titles too, but I try not to do it too often unless I really mean it, and this toner blew me away with how good it was. Oh gosh Korea and Japan is like skincare heaven! Especially Japan because for some reason not a lot of their products are exported to the West, so you have great brands like Tunemakers that are totally under the radar but deserve so much more hype! So glad you enjoyed the review :)

    I love toners in my skincare…Laneige cream skin refiner sounds great with wonderful ingredients and I am impressed that you gave it 9.6 rating… would love to try it… thanks for wonderful review…❤️

  13. Naya says:

    Wow, Jenny! Now I am seriously curious about this toner, you had me at serious moisture! I am currently running out of my beloved Grown Alchemist toner, so this could be a perfect replacement. Thanks a lot for such a thorough review xx


    • Jenny says:

      Ooh I hope you do get a chance to try it Naya, it’s such a lovely product! They sell smaller bottles on ebay too if you don’t want to commit to a full-sized product yet!

  14. Ting says:

    I love love your skincare products review! So glad that located your blog and read the informative review. I always skip toner as I feel they don’t really work on my skin. But after read your review, I am going to give it a try. Laneige Cream Skin Refiner sounds like a miracle in a jar. Thank you for sharing!


    • Jenny says:

      Thank you so much Ting! Yep, I’ve had toners in the past that made me question their purpose and necessity, so it’s good to finally find one that actually makes a difference! Hope you’ll love it too if you try it!

  15. Ooo I love laneige products! Such a plus that it doesn’t have a scent. Some products have way too much fragrance in them.

  16. Luchessa says:

    Very informative post Jenny. Especially because I’m almost done with my third bottle of klairs toner and am currently looking for a nice substitute, simply because I want to try something different and this particular toner was already recommended to me and after reading your post I’m definitely willing to give it a try. I have also seen there are travel size versions of it available – maybe I should start there!
    Xo, Lu.

    • Jenny says:

      Thank you so much! I definitely recommend the travel sized first, just in case it doesn’t work out! I have a bottle of the Klairs toner as a backup and I think I might try mixing the two in the summer when my skin is at its oiliest!

  19. Ohh I definitely need to try this ! Sounds AMAZING!

  20. Anna says:

    I´m lately obsessed with toners, don´t know how I lived without them before lol Will definitely try this one from Laneige – it looks awesome according to your review!

    Have a nice week!

    • Jenny says:

      They can be skin-changing once you find the right ones, and this one definitely falls in that skin-changing category! Hope you have a great week too!

  21. Maria says:

    This sounds like perfection! I have combination skin so a hydrating toner would be great for me. I haven’t tried this yet but need to. Thanks for sharing.

    xo, Maria

  22. This toner sounds amazing! I can always use more moisture.

  23. Wow a a jar of cream in ever bottle! This product sounds really unique and like a total savior for dry skin. From your description of the texture, I bet it would be perfect for the 7 skin method which I swear by when my skin needs a boost of moisture. I’m relieved to hear that it isn’t heavily fragranced either.

  24. Oh wow, that goes straight to my wish list simply because it SOUNDS so unique. A cream in toner – I need to try that!

    • Jenny says:

      It’s definitely different from any other toner or really any product I’ve tried so far! Hope you’ll love it too if you do try it!

  25. I’ve never tried anything from Laneige and I don’t think I have ever come across a bad review from one of their products either. This cream sounds like a great starting point into the brand though, especially as my side of the world is moving into winter.


    • Jenny says:

      Oh this will be lovely for winter to layer under serums and moisturizers for that extra hydration! I’m a big fan of their lip mask too, but unfortunately their sleeping mask was a miss for me :(

  26. Non ho mai sentito parlare di questo prodotto

  27. Gemma Etc. says:

    You’ve totally sold this to me! It sounds incredible. I’ve never tried any of their products before xx

  28. Shoot! I just check Sephora and it’s not available there! I’ll have to check eBay! :-(

  29. Thank you for this wonderful review, Jenny! I have pretty much stop sheet masking so if this product can give me the same chiok chiok effect, I am game! Into my Sephora love list it goes.

  30. Gabrielle says:

    I’m definitely on the hunt for better hydrated and moisturised skin and so this sounds like a safe bet! I love your read your excitement about this; look at that high score, wow! x

  31. Chanel says:

    Ugh this cream sounds life changing, Jenny!
