Acwell is a Korean skincare brand that focuses on using fermented and traditional Korean herbal and medicinal ingredients known as hanbang ingredients such as licorice and ginseng in its formulation and fuses them with modern science and technology.
Ingredients and formulation
It is formulated with 10% licorice water that brightens the skin and helps target skin concerns such as pigmentation, discolouration, and dryness. Licorice root water extracts are also an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial antioxidant that helps fight acne. Licorice is a well-studied ingredient that directly targets the creation of melanin and thus helps with pigmentation and discolouration.
Putting licorice aside, the formula is also a potent blend of green tree extracts, a proven antioxidant that protects our skin against free radical damage. It contains extract of the Perilla Seeds and Peony Flower Extract that has antiaging and skin moisturising properties.
Benefits of Acwell pH balancing licorice toner
This toner will not only tone up your skin and hydrate but is multiplayer that will also deep cleanse, exfoliate and brighten your skin.
It can be termed as a "cleansing toner" as it works amazingly as a skin cleanser. After cleansing, if you swipe it across your face using a cotton pad, it will take out all the leftover dirt and gunk. This is no joke, but even after double cleansing, we usually have a fair amount of residue left on the skin.
Besides deep hydration, it also brightens up the skin tone and helps lighten the pigmentation, be it post-acne scars, dark spots, sunspots. This toner is formulated, keeping all skin types in consideration. However, if you have sensitive skin that doesn't work well with any of the active ingredients such as Vitamin C, AHA, BHA, Retinol, this toner could be your holy grail. Or if you are looking for light exfoliation without any excessive dryness or stripping off day and night.
If your skin is super sensitive and gets red very often, this toner can help you keep your skin calm. Also, if you struggle with dry skin, getting that natural glow can be a difficult road as the skin sucks up anything you apply. This pH-balancing toner from Acwell will provide you with deep hydration and moisturisation. At the same time, the green tree extracts will give you soothing and calm skin.
Toner with a perfect pH balance
Acwell licorice toner has a pH balance of 5.5, so it will maintain your skin balance perfectly and won’t strip your skin of its natural oils. Even putting up some extra layers 2-3 times will boost your skin with hydration. Our skin has a natural pH of 5.5. But external factors such as pollution, excessive oil production, makeup, and alcohol can disturb its pH. K-Beauty toners mostly have a pH ranging from 5.0 to 5.5 that mimic the skin's natural pH and thus help maintain skin balance.
