A huge part of my skincare routine now has been taken over by Asian products. I’ve got something from Japan, a little bit from Taiwan, and a whole lot from Korea. I am loving every bit of product I come across in the Asian beauty community. And one of those happens to be a toner made for oily, shiny skin from Pyunkang Yul.

Pyunkang Yul was established in March 2016 by Pyunkang Korean Medicine Hospital, an institution known for treating atopic skin disorders. Adhering to a philosophy of holistic body wellness, Pyunkang Yul believes healthy skin is attained by maintaining its oil and moisture balance.

Products are 100% made in Korea. (From YesStyle) Continue reading
