Kicho Phyto Natural Refreshing Toner
A word of warning, I have two more Kicho reviews to come this week! It’s a lot of products to try out but hey I’m not complaining! 🙂 Today I’m introducing the Kicho Phyto Natural Refreshing Toner.
Who is Kicho?
Kicho is a natural cosmetics brand, part of the Dooyeon corporation which has over 50 years of history.
What’s it for? Its key functions are brightening and anti wrinkle.
Here’s the blurb from the packaging:
‘A fresh light toner for all skin types with soy phyto placenta water extracts. Gently purifies while respecting skin’ s eco-balance, with velvety-smooth, radiant effects of vitality phyto formula thoroughly and comfortably soothes and tones with deep moisturising effects.’
The instructions say that it should be used with a cotton pad but I’m the type who likes to directly apply the toner to the skin rather than have the cotton pad absorb all the goodness.
As you can see it comes with a pump which makes it very convenient for dispensing.
I find that the Kicho Phyto Natural Refreshing Toner is not overly watery. It has a slight gel consistency which gives it the ability to pool on your skin instead of slip off like….well…water. It is not too dissimilar from the Hado Labo one (which is an old favourite of mine!)
The Kicho Phyto Natural Refreshing Toner has a really pleasant light fragrance which I think has some fresh citrus notes with an aquatic hint. The scent really reminds me a lot of the Innisfree Jeju Sparkling Toner.
The fantastic thing about this toner is how quickly it absorbs into the skin. The effect is cooling and it leaves my skin feeling very soft and hydrated. It’s really perfect for your morning routine before work. There’s no need to wait around, it literally takes about a minute and you can move on to the next step!
Fast absorption seems to be the key feature of this range which I’ve noticed across the Phyto range (which will be reviewed very soon! Same goes for the eye cream, I have now decreased the amount I use, so it now takes just a moment to absorb!
Generally, I’ve always thought watery toners are pretty interchangeable so I’m not particularly picky about what I use. I do think the consistency of the Kicho Phyto Natural Refreshing Toner makes this stand out and overall it is a really nice product to use!
BUT the cost for a 120ml bottle is $52.00 (approx £40.00). It’s really expensive for a toner. So once this finishes I will sadly be going back to more affordable options.
If you’re feeling like a splurge or you are generally lucky in the wallet department – you can check it out at its official site.
