Review: COSRX Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream*

As you guys will very well know, COSRX is one of my favourite brands for skincare. They have a product for all skin types and have figured out the secrets to give you the affordable skincare that's effective with no nasties. It's absolutely remarkable on what they can do. Now, there's a new addition to the family - the COSRX Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream. To be quite honest, I bought this purely because I was curious as to how a toner can become a cream. And to my surprise, it was gem found in a sea of skincare. Find out why I love this product and how it helped my combination skin.

I picked this up on Let's Face It's website a while ago and wanted some new products to try. I came across the COSRX Light Fit Real Water Toner to Cream and it caught my eye instantly. One click later, I came to fall in love quickly and hard.
This is a lightweight cream that claims to also have the properties of a toner. This multipurpose cream is packed with minerals, sea water, hyaluronic acid and vitamins to deliver great benefits to your skin. It is said to ;

  • either be used as a moisturiser, toner or cream
  • hydrate, nourish and brighten the skin 
  • control sebum production
  • improve the elasticity of the skin, as well as restore the moisture condition of the skin
  • be gentle, non-greasy and light weight
  • contain 200-300 more times Vitamin C and E than an apple
There's a lot going for this product and I was incredibly to see whether these claims were true. I have never been disappointed by COSRX and this time was not going to be it. I immensely love this product for so many reasons. It is not a seasonal product as it caters to all parts of my combination skin. After one week of use, I noticed a real difference to my skin (especially around the cheek and the nose area). 

Like any toner and cream, it hydrated my skin and also improved the appearance of my skin. I had been sick for 3 weeks and my skin had become dry and sensitive. So finding this cream was a godsend. This was no ordinary product. As soon as I applied it on my skin, it was more moisturising than the average toner. Once it touched my skin, a burst of moisture began to cool my skin while also moisturising it. In conjunction to using thicker moisture creams, such as the Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream, it was amazing! It was double as much effective as it was on its own. It enhanced the effectiveness and my skin was restored within the week of using it religiously. 

The consistency of the cream is exactly described in its name. It looks like a cream but as you apply it it feels like a toner but the more you massage it into the skin, it begins to feel like a cream. Once it is distributed on to the skin, it does stay on the skin for bit while it gets completely absorbed into the skin without leaving any residue, tackiness or stickiness. 

This cream contains four key ingredients;
  • Sea Water
    is rich in minerals and helps to soothe itchiness, as well as control the sebum levels in your skin. It also has the ability to fight off bacteria that cause your skin to break out. 
  • Hyaluronic Acid
    is a common and infamous ingredient that is well-known for hydrating the skin, while also improving the skin's elasticity and appearance. This giving you that smooth and healthy complexion. 
  • Niacinamide
    also known as Vitamin B3 is the ingredient responsible for collagen production as well an amazing helper in locking in the moisturise that resides in your skin. It also has the ability to accelerate skin turn over. As a result, this gives you a more youthful appearance. 
  • Sea Buckthorn Extract
    is a super nutrient for the skin as it contains high concentrations of anti-oxidants, vitamin (C,E and A) and omega fatty acids. It's commonly used to heal acne, burns and sun damage. But when used in the COSRX Light Fit Toner to Cream, it just soothes the skin and reduces irritation. 

I've been using this for a month and I have to say, it was an expected find that was much needed in my skincare routine. I use it as an all-in-one cream where it tones, hydrates and nourishes my skin, especially when my skin is in a state of crisis. It helps to enhance the effects of my moisturisers and gave my skin a radiance without the heaviness, stickiness or grease. It is extremely lightweight (like a toner) and was very easy to apply and massage into the skin. 

One pump was enough to cover my entire face. I always apply this right after my cleanser and before my skincare routine. I only use it at night before I go to bed. Though, it is gentle enough to be used in the morning as well. It was so incredibly fun to apply to the point I was addicted to the cooling sensation. You can purchase this on the Let's Face It Website for $32.95. They have an amazing loyalty program, as well as offers AFTERPAY.
