Whamisa Organic Flower Deep Rich Essence Toner
In a post on her website detailing her seven-step Korean skin-care routine, Olivia Palermo spoke highly of Whamisa's Organic Flower Deep Rich Essence Toner, calling it her "glow game-changer." "I’ve been personally using this beautiful blend of botanical extracts with cushiony and bouncy texture for the 7 Skin method," she wrote. "It’s not only great for applying with your hands to pat into the skin but can also be used with cotton pads to wipe away. This formula goes beyond balancing skin’s pH level and replenishes the moisture loss that takes place immediately after cleansing."
