Cosrx Full Fit Propolis Synergy Toner

Shifting my skincare to dealing with acne, then healing them was not an easy task. I went from having near perfect skin, to volcanoes on both my cheeks, to skin in dire need of recuperation.

As I turned my focus towards healing ingredients, propolis stood out not only because Swati had already been using it and seeing its benefits, but also because it has incredible soothing and wound repairing properties that I truly needed. After a few searches the Cosrx Full Fit Propolis Synergy Toner caught my eye.

Because I have dry skin that's also dehydrated, I like to incorporate hydration as layers of toners and essences. It seemed only natural for me to look for either of these while trying to incorporate propolis in my regimen. Swati has the CosRx Propolis Light Ampoule, and now I have the toner to complete the set.

What the brand says : A toner that contains 72.6% of Black bee Propolis extract and 10% Honey extract which will make your skin glowy and smooth. Apply as the first step of your skincare routine after washing you face. Massage over the entire face for better absorption.
  • Toner containing maximum content of propolis extract without water
    Formulated with 72.6% of black bee propolis, which is the highest content of propolis extract.
    The largest amount of Propolis extracts among any other propolis products let the toner delivers maximum efficacy of propolis itself such as anti-inflammatory/antibacterial/recovering/enhanced immunity.
  • Non rich, non heavy essence-like toner
    Toner with viscous, essence-like texture leaves your skin light, non-sticky and absorbs faster into your skin the more you tap.
  • Create Synergy with Propolis Light Ampoule
    A boosting toner and the best selling ampoule, the combination of two propolis product will make your skin plump and nourished even better than one.
This toner has a watery texture with slight slip to it. It spreads on the skin and I like to gently pat it in. As soon as the toner sinks in, my skin looks and feels supple and has a distinct glow to it. Never before has a toner given me instantly noticeable effects like this one, and now I understand what the fabled 'propolis glow' is.
Too bad I lose most of the glow when I wash my face, but with continued use I can say that my skin looks better, healthier, and is starting to regain the glow it once had (i.e. I can see the healing progress!)

Propolis can help reduce inflammation and pigmentation associated with it, but I don't experience much reduction in redness, only a decrease in pain and swelling over active breakouts. Any pimples do, however, heal faster and I like to put my faith in propolis for that. Studies have linked propolis to stimulating Type 1 and Type 3 collagen production, and favouring re-epithelialization.

Ingredients : Propolis Extract (72.6%), Honey Extract (10%),  Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Glycerin, Betaine, Cassia Obtusifolia Seed Extract, Panthenol, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Polyglyceryl-10 Myristate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride

I'm glad I gave this the Cosrx Propolis Synergy Toner a try. Apart from the high concentration of the star ingredient, it also contains Panthenol, which we all know and love for its soothing and barrier-supportive properties. Sodium Hyaluronate is always welcome, especially with my dehydrated skin. It helps retain water inside the skin layers making it look plumper and more bouncy. Minimal ingredients also makes me happy because I have lesser chances to trigger an adverse reaction, something that I'm actively trying to avoid in these times.

Plus the fact that it is thankfully non-tacky (propolis / honey products usually tend to be), I can comfortably layer it below my other products in both AM and PM routines. I'll be repurchasing the Cosrx Propolis Synergy Toner for sure, and I've made Swati try it out too (she's successfully converted!)

Price : 1450 INR (22$) for 150ml

Will I repurchase it? Yes, definitely! 

Who will it be good for? 
All skin types who want benefits of propolis without the heaviness. (Oily, Combination, Dehydrated, Sensitive skin). 

xoxo,
Smriti
