Brand Spotlight | Pyunkang Yul

As a Korean skin care addict, the essence toner of Pyunkang Yul shouldn’t be missing on your shelf. The Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner has been a bestseller for years. Skin care enthusiasts praise the essence toner for its natural and organic ingredients. And I must confess that I am also a fan.

I started using this essence toner early last year and have been using it in my skin care routine since. I love the minimalist packaging, plus it works great for my dry skin. Because of my enthusiasm about this essence toner, I bought more products of Pyunkang Yul, namely the low pH cleanser, the serum and the nutrition cream. Am I also satisfied with them?

About the brand Pyunkang Yul

The Pyunkang Korean Medicine Hospital in Korea had many patients suffering from atopic dermatitis. Therefor they decided to set up their own skin care line: Pyunkang Yul. In their products they use hanbang (traditional Korean herbal ingredients and methods) to treat skin conditions.

The philosophy of Pyunkang Yul is simplicity. Only natural ingredients are used that suit every skin type. These ingredients address the root cause of the problem and not just the symptoms.

The famous Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner

This essence toner consists of only 7 ingredients. The largest ingredient is Astragaulus Membranaceus. This is a traditional Chinese medicinal herb and it is anti- inflammatory, it protects against UV rays and it prevents dark spots.

What I like about the essence toner is the watery consistency. It is non sticky and absorbs quickly. Since using this, the dry spots on my face have disappeared. The essence toner is very hydrating.

The Low pH Pore Deep Cleansing Foam

This is a mild cleansing foam with a citrus scent. It removes makeup residue and impurities inside the pores. In addition, it soothes and protects the sensitive, irritated skin and it contains AHA for a gentle exfoliation. This makes your skin smooth and soft.

I really like this cleansing foam. I need a little bit of it and as soon as I put it on my face it immediately starts to foam. It cleans my face very well without stripping my dry skin.

The Moisture serum

This serum helps to rebalance the skin’s oil and moisture levels. It also calms and soothes the skin and provides hydratation.

This serum is the best I have used so far. It instantly repairs my dry skin. The texture is light and creamy, and it feels refreshing. Still I’m not quite a fan of the packaging. It is difficult to get the desired amount of the dropper. Every time there is still a bit left in it that I can’t possibly get out.

The Nutrition Cream

The nutrition cream protects your skin against external irritation, it heals your skin, and it moisturize it.

I’m a little disappointed with the cream. It has a thick structure which makes it difficult to spread. It feels a bit heavy on my face too. Besides, it doesn’t nourish my skin and since I use it, I see no results. I expected more from this.

I’m very pleased with the skin care line of Pyunkang Yul. It is very gentle for my dry and sensitive skin and it moisturizes well. I would like to use more products like the Quick Moisturizing Professional Hand Cream.
