About the Brand BEAUTY OF JOSEON
BEAUTY OF JOSEON is a company that was inspired by the last standing dynasty in Korea that lasted over centuries. The time of the Joseon Dynasty, many used traditional Korean herbal/holistic medicines (also known as hanbang) to treat many illnesses. BEAUTY OF JOSEON products contains natural ingredients such as ginseng, green plum and rice to develop healthy skin promoting skincare products.
They currently have an Amazon store with many products that I would love to try out.

The bubble toner packaging is absolutely beautiful and looks great on my vanity. The bottle is nice and heavy, made of some sort of thick hard plastic that does not feel cheap. The cap is a basic plastic cap as well as the plastic of the pump. The design of the bottle in general is very simple and I love how visually aesthetically pleasing it is.
As the name “Bubble Toner: Green Plum + AHA” suggests, it is bubbly. This toner is a liquid that is pumped out to become a foam (check out my post on instagram to get a better look at the texture). The foam is not thick, its similar to dish soap loose bubbles. The bubbles do not last long, they flatten out very quickly.
I personally like this texture, it allows you to remove the need of using cotton pads – just use your hands! This makes it more eco-friendly and reduces product waste.
It smelt kind of like a sour grape? I’m guessing this is the scent of the green plum water. It is a really light scent but it was definitely on the sour/acidity side. The fragrance of the bubble toner on a scale of 1 to 10 where 10 is heavily fragranced, is a 4. The intensity of the scent is good enough to overlook the acidic notes and did not bother me.

Product experience review
This is my first time using an acid exfoliator and I must say, I’m digging it!! I’ve read a few reviews saying this product was hard to use because it is a foam, but I personally really like this texture for a toner.
I use this product 2-3 times a week without a cotton pad. I pump the bubble toner into my hand and sort of just pat it all over my face and rub it in. At first it was tingly, but it was nothing major that would make me avoid completely using this product.
After a week, I noticed my pores were “clearing” and smoothing out. I REALLY like the effects it had on my skin and I’m still using it today.
Considering this is my first time using this type of product, I’m not sure if it is a holy grail for me (yet?), but I would say this is a perfect entry point.
Usage tips for using Bubble Toner: Green Plum + AHA
