LEEGEEHAAM Grow Hyal B5 Toner  has been laying in my "needs to be reviewed" pile for a while and now it is time for this gem to shine. It is well designed and is perfect for damaged skin. Wether it is intrinsic or caused by external factors, all skin types would benefit from this product.

My experience:

LEEGEEHAAM Grow Hyal B5 Toner is a beautiful product for those who suffer from pigmentation and sun damage. As with many other skin care products it has its beauties and it's flaws. The design of the bottle and the entire range from LGH is impeccable. I love how minimalistic and effortless it all looks. and when you touch the bottle you realize it is sturdy heavy plastic that is not easy to break or damage even if you drop it full force on the floor. I confess, it happened, my bottle flew down the stairs before it got captured on today's pictures in this blog 🙂

 

This toner is rich in niacinamide and humectants that is an extremely healthy combination for my skin current need. I managed to burn my face off while being on antibiotics and !!!while wearing SPF!!! I am miserable, my skin is still peeling in some areas so I do need all the anti-redness help and hydration I can get. Consistency of this product is very lovely. It applies like an ampoule and sinks into the skin like fast absorbing toner. It is somehow thick and light at the same time. So far me gusta.

 

The product is very economic in use. Pump disperses the right amount of product to cover half of my face.  And I do not speak of using it sparingly. Two pumps is all it takes to do the job. After 5 minutes I do use the 2nd coat of it just to nourish my skin some more. Normally I'd just go for 1 layer only method but considering the state my skin is in now, more is better. If I use it in the evening can build it up to 3-4 layers, afterwards it just gets too sticky. In terms of scent it is very mild and fresh and doesn't linger on the skin.

 

Since LGH has officially rebranded and became Dr. Ceuracle, this toner may go out of production. I hope it won't because otherwise I'd have to break a bank and buy 2 years worth of supply. It entirely replaced my niacinamide craving and my skin has been feeling better with each use. After using it twice a day, plus all the extra layering, I managed to go through half the bottle. To soon but the amount I used was necessary for making my skin feel good, despite the traumatic circumstances. I like this product and recommend it to anyone who requires niacinamide and beta-glucan combination for restoring skin's moisture barrier.
