Skin mal:gem review - Toner/Emulsion

Skin Mal:gem

Etude House have so many cleansers, toners, cleansers etc, it’s hard to decide what to buy, so I went with the consumers favourite, Skin Mal:gem. I was really torn between this and the baking soda products, but I wanted something gentle.
I have been using Wonder Pore products, which are really amazing, but as the weather is really harsh at the moment, I wanted to use something really moisturising.


I chose the ‘Fresh’ toner, it claims to help excessive oil production and keep pores tight and skin feeling smooth and fresh, without over-dying. My skin feels pretty tight after using it, but it does feel very clean, and after a few weeks of use, my skin does feel a little bit less oil. It’s definitely nice and clear. It also doesn’t string when I apply it, which I get from most toners. It has a very fresh and fruity scent; it smells all natural.

Moisturiser (Emulsion):

The emulsion is really, really nice. It’s very pure, and almost watery. It does not leave your skin sticky, so you can apply your primer and BB over this once you have left it to absorb into your skin for a minute or two. It has really helped improve my skin quality, and has even (almost) completely abolished a small frown line I had in-between my eyebrows. I love this product and I will continue to use it.

Both the toner and the emulsion can be used in small amounts, so it seems they are really long-lasting. They are also great value for money (both items cost me around £12 on eBay.)



  1. Nice and detailed review of this toner and moisturizer. I hate when my toner feels sticky/heavy.

  2. Me too - thanks for your comment!<3333 kemmypoos
