As I mentioned at the start of this piece, the Keep Cool Soothe Bamboo Toner is simple yet effective. It gets the job done without being too showy. It can be very easy to succumb to ultra-flashy packaging in the world of Korean skin care. Trust me, I've been there. But what good is the flash without the results to back it up? That's not a concern when it comes to this toner.

I'm someone who has struggled with dehydrated, problematic skin in the past. A perfect storm of factors — some beyond my control — had made it difficult for me to effectively address those issues. Introducing my accidental bottle of Keep Cool Soothe Bamboo Toner has helped reduce a lot of those problems over the last year. My skin has not only been more hydrated and supple, but I've also been dealing with much fewer breakouts.

The bottom line

In terms of K-beauty, the price for Keep Cool Soothe Bamboo Toner is considered rather affordable. However, relative to drugstore toners, you're shelling out a handsome sum of cash for a 12-ounce bottle ($30). But take it from me — it will last you months, so it's well worth the investment.

This lightweight toner is very easy to layer on for added benefits. (You can Google "7-skin method" to learn more about this.) Depending on how dry your skin gets in the colder months, it may not be enough on its own; however, it could act as a serviceable supplement to heavier, creamier formulas.

But overall? The Keep Cool Soothe Bamboo Toner is one of the best Korean beauty products I've stumbled upon. It's a no-frills way to keep skin hydrated, soothed, and protected from environmental irritants. Plus, it's such a gentle formula that anyone with sensitive skin may want to give it a glance as well.

Consider this your invitation to check out a lesser-known Korean skin-care brand that isn't any less deserving of accolades. Your skin will thank you for it.
