Broadcaster: Sabhya (@peachplum_beauty)

Age Range: 25-34

Climatic Conditions: Extremes in all climates

Skin Type/Texture: Dry skin

I Have Been Using It For: 3-6 months

I Use It: Daily, at night

Experience: I have been using this toner for the past one and a half month. A little goes a long way.

✨ The formula is so lightweight, absorbs quickly into the skin. And, leaves a glowy effect after. My skin literally drinks up this toner.

✨ Along with that, the product is so hydrating and soothing. Help other products to penetrate easily into the skin.

✨ It instantly removes any tight or dry feeling you get when you wash your face.

The toner has a pH of 5.5 that works perfectly on troubled and irritated skin.


So, overall I love this toner. And, this is a hydrating and soothing toner more suitable in summers according to me (as the texture is light), but you can use this toner for a 7 layer skin method for better hydration in winters (If you have dry, flaky skin like me). It’s suitable for all skin types. Best for dull, dehydrated and irritated skin.

What I love

🌸 Texture – The texture feels just like water, with a runny consistency.

🌸 Fragrance – It doesn’t include any fragrance. Yay!

🌼 How I use it?

I take it on my palms (I don’t use cotton pads) and pat it gently on my skin.

It is designed to match the skin’s acidity at a perfect pH of 5.5 to maintain a healthy balance to your skin. I have oily skin and I swear it doesn’t feel heavy and sticky. Believe it when I say this – the Keep Cool soothe bamboo toner has no cons.


My final opinion ❤️ This product is without any scent and also is very calming. I’ve never tried K-beauty products and after trying this, I am surely gonna buy a full-size of the Keep Cool soother bamboo toner. Love how it suits all skin types. I would highly recommend you guys to buy a mini version to see if it helps you/suits your pretty skin🥰🔥

Main ingredients:

~ Bamboo Vulgaris water and Bamboo Vulgaris extract – this star ingredient constitutes 85% of the toner composition. It helps in counteracting dryness and helps in reducing dark spots by keeping melanocytes (pigment producing cells) happy (this adds up to how hydration can combat a lot of skin conditions). Bamboo is also antibiotic and anti-inflammatory in nature with great antioxidant properties.

~ Cool Keeper Complex which constitutes Lonicerae Japonica extract (10th ingredient), Scutellaria Baicalensis extract (11th ingredient) and Forsythia Suspensa Vahl. extract (12th ingredient) which are natural antipyretic herbs used in traditional Korean medicine to reduce skin temperature and relief the skin of inflammation and dryness

~ Polyglutamic acid and sodium hyaluronate – one with higher molecular weight and another with lower molecular weight helps in providing moisture or hydration to different parts of the skin.
