Review: Laneige Pore Trouble Skin Refiner

Good day everyone!!! How's your week? It's already Friday here in the Philippines and it's a very hot day.. I'm so excited right now because it's already a "-ber" month and Christmas is nearing so hopefully the cold season will come very soon and my suffering will end haha :)

So, for my first review after my comeback, I will talk about Laneige Pore Trouble Skin Refiner. This is a toner from Laneige's Pore Trouble line or their skin care line for acne prone skin.

This is what it looks like:

It's a beautiful bluish-green glass bottle that is 7.5 inches tall and it contains 160ml of product.

At the back of the bottle, it says there "Dermatologist tested" and that it's made in Seoul, Korea.

It has a screw type lid which is very secure so you don't have to worry about spilling. It has a stopper so you get to control the amount of product to be dispensed in your cotton pad.

Here's my take on the product after finishing it up ^_^


- It smells good. It has no strong scent of alcohol that other toners have.

- It doesn't sting my eyes if I accidentally placed it near my eye.

- It didn't cause any irritation or breakout in my skin.

- Cleanses any trace of dirt and makeup left.

- It helped in controlling my oiliness because it doesn't strip my skin dry so my skin doesn't produce more oil.

- It comes in a very pretty packaging. It's so nice to look at on top of my dresser hehe ^_^

- The rubber stopper has the perfect size of hole so I don't waste a lot of product every use.


- It's quite pricey. It cost around Php1,500 (sorry I can't remember the exact price) for 160ml of product.

- The glass bottle is not travel-friendly coz it might break. SO this might be a con for some. But you can just transfer some product in a travel size spritzer that you can bring when you travel, that's what I do :)

OVER-ALL RATING: 5/5. This is the best toner I have tried ever! I think this is my HG because I can't find anything wrong with it except for the price but I don't mind paying a little extra if I get the results I want.

WILL I REPURCHASE? Yes! But not now coz I'm gonna try other toners from Laneige and Etude House next. But I'll definitely buy this again if that doesn't work as great as this :)

What about you? What's your favorite toner? Share them in the comment box below. I love trying out products. If I can find something as good as this one but a lot cheaper , why not? Right? ^_^

Till my next post. Bye!!

Thank you Kumiko Mae! I so agree with you. They do over-price on some of their products...I'm thinking because of the quality of their packaging hehe ^_^
