    Love love love!!!! Thank you again Renee it's like you read my mind. I just got my order on this amazing Pyungkang Yul deal. Ofcourse I'm dying to try the essence toner! Ever since you reviewed it on your moisturizing toner video. I'm also trying the oil and the nutrition cream. Thank you girl! ❤️

    Very aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Though reading through the ingredient list has me worried a bit. For example the "moisture serum" contains dimethicone. A chemical that I've learned at times has been connected to cancer in some research tests. Is this true? It has other non organic chemicals. Are they truly safe?

    You're my favorite. I'm so tempted to do a skincare post on my site now (inspired by you), even though I have a feeling it will tank since it's so different from what I normally do! I love all of your videos, though. Keep them coming.

    I totally love the essence toner – ordered it when you recommended it in that toner video. I also ordered the foaming cleanser, but find it to leave my skin a bit too "squeaky" clean. It's probably just my skin, but i find that fragranced cleansers just don't agree with me. That said, I do like it…but I won't be able to use it daily. I've had a really hard time finding a foam cleanser I can use daily, so I'd love any suggestions you have. I'm going to try the rest of the line and I really appreciate you breaking the whole collection down so I have a clear view of the right products for my dry skin! I absolutely LOVE your channel and learn so much from you!

    Great video! I was just about to buy Klairs Supple Preparation Toner, and now I don't know if I should try one of the Pyunkang Yul toners instead. I have sensitive skin with rosacea and prone to congestion, so I am always looking for ways to hidrate my skin using lightweight products that don't feel heavy or clog and irritate my skin. What do you recommend Klairs or Pyunkang Yul products? Both look like good brands for sensitive skin at a reasonable price, and I really wanna try some korean skincare! Thanks

    The feel when these products look so good and you want to buy so many and then you find out shipping to Australia starts at $46.50 USD…guess that'll be a no from me when the shipping costs more then the product

    Hi Rene! I was on ohlolly the other day and I saw these and immediately thought of you. I did watch your fav toner video but must have forgotten that you had mentioned this brand's toner. I'm so glad you did a review. Is it because older skin loses so much of its vitality, for a lack of a better way to phrase, that anti-aging is grouped together with dry skin? I am 42 so I'm all about anti-aging, but I consider my skin pretty normal and hydrated. Just wondering. Thank you again for another wonderful brand video.

    Question! If you plan on wearing an overnight mask, should you still apply the ampule last? maybe not use it at all that night?

    I wanted to try this brand's products so bad I was waiting for your review! I have oily skin (really oily around t zone and sometimes cheeks) but sometimes my skin feels dehydrated around my cheeks area or tight after cleansing, what products recommendation should I follow? Combination, Oily or oily dehydrated?
    I really wanted to try the essence toner because I've read some people use it as a moisturizer during summer and my skin gets really oily during summer so I wanted to try it out but it doesnt appear in the recommended products for oily skin…

    I really love the cleanser and the mist. Those are the only two I have so far, but I am about to put in another order and going to add a couple more from this line. Renee is right, Ohlolly has great customer service, shipping is fast and there is a handwritten thank you note each time I have received my products, which shows me that they genuinely care about their customers. Thank you Renee and Ohlolly for these wonderful K beauty products, I'm hooked! Looking forward to trying more.

    I was so excited to see this long-awaited video on my subscription feed. =) I love the nutrition cream and balancing gel for my dry skin. I've been using it after actives at night. It's one of the only products that can soothe the redness in my sensitive skin. I agree that the gel is similar to the J one jelly pack, but I think there's more value in the balancing gel. The only difference is the packaging. Great video as always!
