Medi-peel Aqua Essence Peptide 9 Toner


Medi-Peel Aqua Essence Peptide Toner Review

Starting off with the Aqua Essence Peptide 9 Toner by the Korean brand Medi Peel. This toner essence is suitable for all skin types and is especially ideal for dehydrated and sensitive skin. This product easily soaks into the skin, hydrating it without leaving a sticky residue and leaves the skin plumped and luminous. Additionally, this essence toner has patented time code collagen, 9 types of peptides and 4 types of hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate, even out skin-tone, enhance elasticity and combat signs of aging.


This product feels so soothing on my skin and it is thick enough to keep my skin feeling plumped and hydrated . I like how there's peptides in it so it feels good knowing that I can prevent and fade any premature wrinkles. I like to use the toner with the emulsion from the same range for more effect. Additionally, the product is definitely non-sticky and absorbs so well and quickly into my skin. My verdict would be that out of all the future mentions of essence toners, this has got to be one of my favourites.

RNW’s DER.MOIST Hyal Treatment Toner


NRW Der.Moist Hyal Treatment Toner

This is a moisturising toner that retains moisture in the skin with quintuple hyaluronic acid, trehalose and plant-derived polysaccharide. The 5 hyaluronic acids are composed of hyalight, hyalactive, hyalcover, hyalultra and hyalglue. This product is formulated with Glyceryl Glucoside, which is known as the main ingredient of desert plants, thus it assists with circulating and locking in moisture as well as strengthening the skin's barrier.


This brand is focused on “renewing your skin” and my skin definitely feels renewed. I sometimes get irritated, extremely dry and sensitive skin, so this product has repaired my skin’s barrier as I noticed that my skin wasn’t acting up as much as it was. Additionally, the product is scent-less and I didn’t feel the need to reapply or apply as much during the initial application, as my skin felt moisturised all throughout the day.

VT Super Hyalon Skin Booster

VT Cosmetics Super Hyalon Skin Booster Review

This hydrating skin booster is formulated with 8 different kinds of hyaluronic acid to provide and lock in intensive moisture to especially dehydrated skin, all other skin types and skin concerns. Additionally, it includes the ingredients sodium hyaluronate to restore moisture levels and improve skin texture, as well as polyglutamic acid, which helps improve fine lines and wrinkles by making the skin plump and rejuvenated.


I was interested in the ingredient polyglutamic acid, as I heard that the moisture locking system was stronger than hyaluronic acid. I gave this product a try as this has the infamous hyaluronic acid ingredient as well as polyglutamic acid. During the winter time when my skin was at its most dehydrated condition, adding this product to my routine, it really made a difference in moisturising the flaky and dry parts of my face.

Dr.Jart+ Vital Hydra Solution Mask

Dermask Micro Jet Vital Hydra Solution Mask (5pcs/box)

Although this not a Hada Labo dupe, you can get similar results with a face mask! This is a cellulose sheet mask that deeply hydrates, replenishes and protects the skin’s own moisture. This is a great addition to the skincare that fits well with all of the products mentioned above for all skin types.
