I consider myself an organized person, so of course I can't bear any mess. Everything in my life has to be clean and pretty, and when it comes to skin care, I always find myself drawn to products with a minimalist aesthetic.
TIRTIR is a Korean skin care brand that promotes and hugs healthy skin. She has a range of products with minimal packaging designs that I like to add to my skin care routine. I'm checking TIRTIR's Calm Down Bubble Toner and some of the brand's Water Glossy Line items, including milk skin, SOS serum and ceramic cream. In addition to the slim packaging, I also think it's great that these products are formulated with moisturizing and anti-aging ingredients – perfect for my current skin problems!
Calm the blister toner
What it claims to do: A rich blister toner that soothes and cares for dry skin
My experience: I have never tried bladder toner, so it was definitely exciting to test because its texture is different from other regular toners. The blister toner consists of fermented soybean and witch hazel extracts as well as panthenol to hydrate, calm and tighten the pores. I'm used to applying toner to a cotton pad to make it feel strange (at the start) Apply toner with a blister structure directly to my skin. As part of my routine, I apply a bladder toner pump immediately after cleansing and my skin absorbs it quickly, leaving me with skin that is hydrated and ready for the next product. Although the toner is intended for dry skin, I don't find it too rich for my combination skin.
What it claims to do: A toner that provides deep, long-lasting hydration to the skin
My experience: At first, I thought that milk skin was an essence because its packaging resembled other essences that I tried. Do not make this mistake because it is actually a toner! I use the Calm Down Bubble Toner in my morning skincare, so I swap it for milk skin for my nightly routine.
Milk skin contains all the ingredients my skin currently needs: rice bran extract and niacinamide for brightening, sodium hyaluronate for moisturizing and extracts from Centella asiatica and witch hazel for calming.
I've left a lot of dark spots from previous acne, so using products that help to lighten them is my main priority right now. Dark spots take more time to heal, but I'm glad that this toner not only brightens my spots but also my entire complexion. Milk skin is also a great toner that can be added to my evening program as it is very moisturizing and prepares my skin very well before I apply the SOS serum.
What it claims to do: A moisturizing serum that strengthens the skin barrier and deeply hydrates the skin
My experience: After cleaning and tightening my skin, I apply 3-4 drops of SOS serum day and night. The texture of the serum is slightly watery and my skin drinks it to the fullest, so I don't have to wait long for it to sink completely before moving on to the next step.
I think it's great that my complexion always looks super hydrated and glowing when I use this serum so I haven't spent a day without it! The serum is also said to help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and after use, my smile lines are undoubtedly less visible and my skin looks smoother and feels smoother. It also has no smell. So if you are sensitive to fragrances, this serum is perfect for you.
What it claims to do: A rich cream that deeply nourishes the skin
My experience: Ceramic cream is formulated with shea butter, and since shea butter is one of my favorite ingredients for my winter routine, the ceramic cream has earned a place in my winter skin care collection. With its combination of shea butter and polyglutamic acid, this cream provides a deep and long-lasting moisturization that is a bit too much for my skin during the day, so that I only include it in my nightly skin care routine. I think it's great how easily the ceramic cream spreads on my skin and how the SOS serum leaves a beautiful and healthy glow.
I would highly recommend this cream for dry or dehydrated skin or if you have an impaired skin barrier. People with oily skin can also try this cream. However, try to use it in the evening to avoid making it look smooth until noon.
My final judgment
All four products worked very well on my combination skin and I'm glad I didn't have any new breakouts when I added it to my routine.
Both Calm the blister toner and Milk skin are perfect for moisturizing my skin, and I can imagine using both toners in spring and summer. The SOS serum and Ceramic cream Provide deeper hydration so I can use it throughout the winter both day and night. As soon as the weather warms up and it feels a bit wetter outside, I will most likely only use the serum and cream at night.
I strongly recommend trying all four TIRTIR products if you want a well-groomed and smooth complexion! Have you ever tried TIRTIR?
