So Natural pH 5.5 Red Water Toner Review

Through Seoulunni, So Natural is finally in the Philippines! The brand started way back 2007 and rose to popularity in Korea due to the effectiveness of their nature-friendly products. I'm so lucky to be gifted with one of their best-sellers, the pH 5.5 Red Water Toner.

So Natural pH 5.5 Red Water Toner

This first phase sub-acidic toner aims to soothe and balance skin's pH level. 

Key ingredients:
  • Melia Azadirachta (Neem) Leaf and Flower Extract - has anti-inflammatory and skin-calming benefits
  • Centella Asiatica Extract - an anti-oxidant which helps revitalize skin's protective barrier
  • Green Tea Leaf Extract - soothes the skin and has anti-aging properties
  • Lemon Extract - cleanses and helps control skin's oil production

Application: Pour an apt amount of toner on a cotton swab and gently wipe over the face and neck. You can use your hands too. I also read that it can be used as a mask pack: Drench cotton pads with the liquid and then place them on your forehead, chin, and around the face. Leave them on for 10 to 15 minutes. 

Observation: When the box arrived, I immediately adored the minimalist red and white packaging. The toner comes in a 130 ml glass bottle. I thought the liquid itself is in extreme red color but rather a faint pinkish hue. It's just the bottle that's red! Anyhow, here's my experience with the product:

It's good because...

  1. its consistency is very light so it easily gets absorbed by the skin.
  2. it gives off a refreshing feel after usage.
  3. it delivers the hydration my combo skin is looking for.
  4. the 130 ml toner will last very long.

Even better if... there's none I can think of!

Conclusion: The acceptable pH level is around 5. Higher than 7 (which is neutral) is leaning towards alkalinity and will eventually weaken the acid mantle or our natural protective barrier making our skin more vulnerable to irritants. Because of its pH, So Natural Red Water Toner provides a good preparation for other products that will complete our skincare routine. This toner makes my face considerably hydrated and I have no ill experience while using it. This can be purchased in Beauty MNL for P1580. It may sound pricey but hey it's 130 ml for all good reasons!
