Review: Dr. Jart + Ceramidin Liquid Moisturizing Toner #DrJart #Ceramidin #CeramidinLiquid #Beauty #Skincare #ceramides #MoisturizingToner #KBeauty

Since my skin is dry (yes, this is something I have mentioned a lot on here) it is something I will continue to write about. Mainly because I tend to test out products for my particular skin type. I fell in love with Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream after getting a great deal on the whole cream and body lotion set during the post-holiday sale at SEPHORA. So I thought I would try the Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid Moisturizing Toner. This way I can still moisturize my skin really well during the spring and summer but ultimately use a lighter cream on my skin, such as the Elizavecca Moisture Hyaluronic Memory Cream I discussed yesterday. 

Well, I fell in love with the Ceramidin Liquid. I should have purchased this sooner for winter. I could have added this in before or instead of an essence. The Ceramidin Liquid Moisturizing Toner is an Allure 2019 Best of Beauty Winner. And with good reason. This lightweight moisturizing toner is not your normal toner. It is an opaque milky thick toner made with a 5-Cera Complex that leaves skin supple, moisturized and ready to absorb the next products in your skincare regimen. It contains a lot of great ingredients. I won't go into all of them here but let's succinctly discuss a few of them here. Propylene Glycol is a humectant that helps draw moisture into the skin, as does glycerin. Panthenol (Vitamin B5), a calming complex of fig, cica (centella asiatica) and phyto extracts relieve cracked or flaky skin. For all skin types really, but great for skin that is dry, rough, flaky, rough-textured or has its natural moisture barrier compromised. Sodium hyaluronate (a form of hyaluronic acid) is another humectant and it holds 1,000 times its own weight in water. Combined with propylene glycol and glycerin, this is a humectant powerhouse. Plus there is the 5-ceramide complex that it has, which helps to repair the natural moisture barrier of the skin. which is what is often compromised when skin is dry, flaky and rough textured. The fig extract helps to hydrate and smooth rough skin, while is also clears out dead, flaky skin cells. Panthenol and cica help to calm and soothe the skin, healing irritations. To help regenerate, calm and rejuvenate the skin, we have various phyto extracts such as cocoa seed extract, turmeric root and chinaberry (melia flower) extract. These also act as powerful antioxidants, ridding the skin of free radicals that attack collagen production and age skin. 

To use: after cleansing skin and removing all makeup, apply a generous amount on entire face. (Be careful not to use too much though because then you have too much product to put all over the neck and decoll├ęte too). I would advise using your hands to apply this, not a cotton pad. The cotton pad would soak up too much product and be wasteful. You want this product on your skin. So pour a little bit in your palm and then apply to your face with eyes and mouth closed. 

I apply the toner to my entire face and neck (it helps my atopic dermatitis). Immediately it starts to sink in and my skin feels amazing. Dryness is immediately quenched. Skin feels relieved and soothed. I am in the middle of having an atopic dermatitis flare-up on my neck and this toner makes my skin very happy. It helps to repair the natural moisture barrier, which has been compromised with atopic dermatitis/eczema (of course the natural microbiome is upset too, my skin also needs probiotics). Ceramides are naturally an essential component of the natural moisture barrier and when something happens to it, the ceramides become depleted and skin becomes dry, flaky and rough. Replenishing them is essential for having healthy skin. I love the way it makes my skin feel. This product is definitely going to be a staple in my skincare regimen from now on. I think I will alternate between this and my essence. There is really no need to use both at the same time. The Ceramidin Liquid does the work of an essence too. 

Would I recommend this product for all skin types? That is a good question. I know many products are actually recommended for all skin types but that doesn't necessarily mean that someone with oily skin can really use something meant for dry skin. I do think that this product is appropriate for those with mature, dry, normal and combination skin types. And someone with dehydrated skin (not a skin type but a condition of the skin). However, someone with oily and acneic skin would probably find this product a bit too heavy. If you suffer occasional acne, by all means use it. I am speaking of someone with moderate to severe acne. 

I definitely recommend this product for anyone with dehydrated, dry, mature or normal skin who needs some extra moisture in their regimen. It may seem expensive but the bottle should last a good long while because you will be only using a small amount each time. And the Dr. Jart+ products are really worth the money, from a K-Beauty perspective. These are some of the highest quality ones available.
