Skincare: Laneige Cream Skin Refiner Mist Review

Ah, Laneige. What can I say. This is the ultimate among the cult-favorites and if you are a skincare enthusiast, there is no way you have not yet come across Laneige Cream Skin Refiner β€” dubbed as the moisturizer melted into a toner ideally made for the sensitive skin.

I must be honest, I am not a skincare enthusiast and my routine consists simply of the basics. When I first came across Cream Skin Refiner, it was from one of Liah Yoo’s videos. I think most of us reading this post is familiar with her but in case you are not, she is a skincare blogger who started her own brand, Krave Beauty.

It was a long time ago and during that time it was not yet available from where I live, although I’m not so sure but when I finally saw a 50mL version on BeautyMnl I didn’t hesitate and made an order. Shortly afterwards, I got a full 120mL mist version.

I have an extremely sensitive skin, so if you perhaps relate with me and you’re interested to learn about my experience with Laneige Cream Skin Refiner Mist, without further ado, let’s read on.

Product Description

It is a deep hydration mist that gives a fine spray in a circular angel ring-like form before and after makeup without clumps.


Water / Aqua / Eau, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, 1,2-Hexanediol, Polyglyceryl-10 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Inulin Lauryl Carbamate, Glyceryl Caprylate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Propanediol, Disodium Edta, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Tocopherol

My Experience

As a person with generally dry skin I have had my fair share of hydrator and moisturizer experiences but because my skin is extremely sensitive too, I tend to buy only tester sizes. When I came across Laneige Cream Skin Refiner I first bought a mini size to try it out but after two days I knew instantly that my skin is a match because normally with other products, I get breakouts after two uses.

I decided to buy the mist version because I’m not a fan of the bottle design of the Cream Skin Refiner. It leaks easily when held upside-down.

What Do I Like About It?

The consistency is my favorite. It’s watery, milky and light. It gets absorbed by the skin easily especially if you don’t layer it. Living in a tropical country, this kind of product is a must-have! Also, this does not contain fragrance oil, so you get fewer irritants.

Furthermore, this product is paraben-free, EU allergen-free, sulfate-free, alcohol-free, silicone-free, and cruelty-free. Plus, it contains Vitamin E which is a notable anti-aging ingredient!

What Don’t I Like About It?

Although I really do love this toner but there are some things about this which I can do without. First, it is not fungal-acne safe. There are actually three ingredients here that may trigger fungal-acne, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Limnanthes Alba Seed Oil, and Polyglyceryl-10 Stearate which are all skin-conditioning ingredient.

Second, something in the formula tends to irritate my eyes that is why I don’t spray this directly on my face. Yes, this can make my eyes sting! What I do instead is I spray the product on my hands and simply pat it on my cheeks and forehead. Lastly, the price is a bit steep at least for me, and it tends to be a bit sticky when you pat on more than three layers.

Will I Recommend It?

Ah, what can I say? How can I not recommend it when it’s sooo good?

YES, I am prescribing the Laneige Cream Skin Refiner Mist to everyone, especially if you have sensitive skin. Although there are certain fungal-acne triggers, from my experience my skin did not react negatively. I think this product is safe for everyone, just avoid getting some in your eyes!

However, if you have extremely dry skin, this cannot hold up especially in the colder months. You will still need a heavier moisturizer.

Here is where I bought my Laneige Cream Skin Refiner Mist.

Additional Notes:

So far so good! Every morning, I wash my face with water and pat a good amount of Laneige Cream Skin Refiner Mist then top it off with Dear Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence.

I did not have any reaction with those two products layered. However as of writing this post, I am trying on a new facial cleanser, the Make P:rem Safe Me Relief Moisture Cleansing Foam which I now am using every morning. Unfortunately, I now have noticeable tiny white bumps on my forehead and under my eyes.

I’m still trying to find out if the reason for this is because of the facial cleanser alone (which will be a big let-down if it is!), or because the mildly acidic formulation of the cleanser is not a good match for my another slightly acidic product – the sunscreen, or maybe the Laneige Cream Skin Refiner Mist too is a factor, at this point, I really don’t know.

Anyway, have you tried the Laneige Cream Skin Refiner? What is your HG toner?
