It calms irritation and inflammation.
Skin redness — often a byproduct of eczema, rosacea, or hypersensitivity — can prove frustratingly tricky to ameliorate. Moreover, cold weather can exacerbate redness, incite flakiness, and generally leave skin looking and feeling rather worn. Luckily, solutions exist, And one such option is the Anua Heartleaf Soothing Toner, which boasts over 1,800 five-star ratings at Amazon in part thanks to a sizable fanbase on TikTok. For a limited time, the toner is on sale at Amazon, where it’s $20 — just in time for the skin-sensitizing seasons ahead.
The Anua Heartleaf Soothing Toner is a calming Korean skincare fix for relieving redness, soothing dryness, lessening irritation, and quelling inflammation. True to its name, the formula calms on contact while imparting lightweight, long-lasting hydration.
Additionally, the formula balances skin’s pH — which, as dermatologist Dr. Hadley King, M.D., previously told InStyle, is a crucial component in maintaining a healthy acid mantle — the outermost layer that “functions as the final barrier between you and the outside world.” Moreover, it’s responsible for retaining “moisture and nutrients,” while shielding skin from environmental irritants. When pH levels are imbalanced, skin is more “susceptible to…conditions such as acne and eczema," dermatologist Dr. Marisa Garshick, M.D. previously confirmed — both of which share redness and flakiness as salient symptoms.
The toner’s hero ingredient, heartleaf, is found in myriad calming-centric Korean skincare products for its antiinflammatory benefits. As is true of many essences and toners, Anoua’s formula also preps skin for ensuing serums and moisturizers by improving product absorption and amplifying hydration.
Shoppers with sensitive skin swear by the toner; one reviewer says it “literally saved” their complexion from redness and sensitivity. Another reviewer says the toner “calms down redness.” Moreover, they report noticeable improvement in their skin’s hydration levels and praise the ultra-light, layerable pilling-proof formula. Finally, another fan, who says they’d given up on toners until they discovered Anua’s, noted that it yielded “drastic changes” in their skin tone, pore size, and facial redness. “My skin feels calm and ready to absorb any serum or product afterwards,” they share.
For a soothing, hydrating, redness-quelling solution that can seamlessly incorporate into any existing skincare routine, shop the Anua Heartleaf Soothing Toner at Amazon while it’s on sale for $20.
