I’m From Rice Toner is a multi-function toner. It hydrates the skin. It brightens the skin. And it improves the visible signs of ageing.

This distinctive milky toner improves dryness, dullness, tone and texture.

It uses a high concentration of rice and rice bran extracts to gently exfoliate dry areas, increase hydration and reduce the appearance of surface discolourations.

Skin will look clearer, more even toned and radiant.

Why I’m From Rice Toner?

Rice water has been used by women in South Korea, Japan and China since ancient times. It contains vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and delivers proven anti-ageing benefits. And it does all this while being gentle and soothing.

I’m From uses a specific breed of rice, Goami, which is high in fibre, unlike most other forms of rice. Science has confirmed the benefits of rice bran when used in skin care products. It is rich in more than 100 antioxidant compounds, including Vitamin E, Ferulic Acid and Oryzanol. Additionally, it contains micronutrients such as calcium, selenium, phosphorous and zinc. And if that wasn’t enough, there are omega-3 fatty acids and polysaccharides. These polysaccharides are naturally found in the skin and are critical to skin health. They help with skin hydration, as well as repair and renewal.

This toner also contains other active ingredients, including Niacinamide, Purslane Extract, Amaranth Seed Extract and Adenosine.

Key ingredients

I’m From Rice Toner contains about 75% Rice Extract (Oryza sativa), as well as Rice Bran Extract. These provide the skin with antioxidants to protect against free radical damage and necessary nutrients to enhance skin health. They also help with skin renewal by providing gentle exfoliation and improving hydration. The species of rice used, Goami rice, is rich in beneficial compounds,

Niacinamide is one of skin care’s it ingredients. It restores the skin barrier, evens out tone, minimises the appearance of pores and helps reduce acne breakouts. Niacinamide is also up there with Vitamin C and Retinol when it comes to anti-ageing benefits. This Vitamin B3 ingredient is a powerhouse that covers all the bases and a good one to on an ingredients label, so long as it’s not in too high a concentration.

Purslane Extract is an antioxidant that has soothing and anti-ageing properties. It’s rich in vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids and polysaccharides (hydrating sugars). Of particular interest is its content of the compounds Glutathione and Genistein. Glutathione is a super antioxidant that protects the skin from premature ageing. Genistein has been found in studies to reduce dryness, wrinkling and sun damage.

Amaranth Seed Extract has a high content of Squalane and is helpful in treating dry and irritated skin. Squalane replenishes the skin’ surface lipids and strengthens the barrier function. This extract also contains high levels of peptides and polysaccharides, which help the skin hold onto water.

Adenosine is another powerhouse ingredient in skin care. We particularly like seeing this ingredient used alongside Niacinamide. They are a power couple. Adenosine has been found to be a cell-signalling ingredient. It calms inflammation and helps with skin repair; it improves skin firmness and elasticity; and it strengthens the skin barrier and improves its function. As an anti-ageing ingredient, Adenosine has been shown to smooth the appearance of crow’s feet brow lines, likely due to the stimulation of collagen production.

Suits all skin types.

It provides very gentle exfoliation.

If you have rosacea, you may need to limit use to 2-3 times a week.

I’m From Rice Toner Review

I cannot say enough good things about this toner. This is actually my first K-beauty product,  and I bought it because influencer James Welsh kept bragging about how amazing this was … I’m literally on my fourth bottle, as it does wonders for my skin. I made the mistake of listening to a friend of mine’s recommendation who told me about a new toner that he was using. He knew I like trying new products and suggested I should give it a try; and that was a huge mistake. My skin began to look dull again. It looked nowhere near as hydrated and overall just made my skin look tired. I will not be making that mistake again and I will be sticking with what works for me and my skin, and that’s this toner. ❤



How to use

After cleansing, shake the bottle to mix the contents.  Using a cotton pad or your hands, apply an adequate amount to your face, tapping in to aid absorption.

The product will separate into an emulsion layer and water layer.

Be sure shake the bottle to combine before using.

Store in a cool, dry place away from sunlight.

Avoid contact with eyes.

  1. Anna Marie

    This is a lovely milky toner that is as soothing to look at as it is to use. You’ll soon fall in love with this gorgeous toner and won’t want to skip using it. Rich in Goami Rice Extract, this toner has a thin texture that goes to work immediately to calm, hydrate and gently refine the skin. It contains a thoughtful ingredient list that, in addition to rice and rice bran extracts, includes Niacinamide, Adenosine and extracts from Purslane, Amaranth and Japanese Elm Bark. I like to do a few passes with it to build up the hydration. My skin feels soothed, moist and plump after using it, and it provides extra-gentle exfoliation that doesn’t irritate my skin at all, and that’s saying something given I’ve got super sensitive and super picky skin! This goldilocks formula suits all skin types … really. If your skin is dry, sensitive or combination, you’ll find it especially helpful. It’s also great if your skin is dull, fatigued or stressed. And if you have oily skin, you can enjoy hydration without your pores becoming clogged. As there are no essential oils or fragrance, it’s kind to your skin and nose too. For me, this is toner heaven.
