[REVIEW] 9wishes Rice 72% White Lucent Refining Toner

9wishes Rice 72% White Lucent Refining Toner Review:

I have decided to try this toner when I ran out of my last one. Since I was battling with post-acne scarring, I was specifically looking for brightening products and decided to test out this toner due to its brightening claims and my love for rice skin products.


+ The toner claims to be a functional whitening toner that cares for melanin and skin tone.

+ To my knowledge, a functional whitening product contains at least 2% niacinamide, which seems to be the case looking at the ingredient list.

+ However, The star ingredient of this product is rice water, which the company claims brightens the skin due to its vitamin e content.

+ It also claims to be pH balanced and provides moisture and hydration to the skin.

9wishes Rice 72% White Lucent Refining Toner Review:

The product comes in a tall cylindrical bottle that has a screw-on cap. I actually prefer this for more watery products as pumps have a tendency to squirt everywhere. However, I found that the cap is not particularly tight and product will actually leak out if the bottle is left on its side. It may just this particular bottle but be wary!

In terms of texture, the product is very watery (it is 72% rice water after all) and only a little bit more viscous than actual water. However, this is preferable for a toner as it doesn’t take long for it to sink in and I can get straight into layering my other moisturizers without waiting for a very long time.

A note of warning though, if you apply this to broken skin or any open wounds, you can expect it to sting a bit due to the active ingredients of the toner.

The product has a slightly floral fresh scent that I found very pleasant. It smells nice but is also not to overpowering. Although note that I am rather insensitive to fragrances and do not get turned off by scents easily even by the infamous scent of the Cosrx AHA whitehead liquid. It may be a bit much for others.

I have been using the toner for a couple months already and my scars have been fading slowly but steadily. I have been using the toner in conjunction with vitamin c so I have a feeling that my vitamin c has been doing most of the heavy lifting, but coupled with the toner, I think the whitening effects have been bolstered.

Yes, I would repurchase if I ran out of toner and don’t have another one that I want to test. It’s a solid toner that claims to be pH-balanced, moisturizes well, and preps skin for other products. It definitely provides enough moisture and is comfortable on my combo skin, but I’m not sure whether it would be sufficient for someone with very dry skin.

In terms of fading hyperpigmentation, this toner might be able to fade minor discoloration within a month of continual daily use, but I would look elsewhere if you want a stand-alone product that will be able to fade darker discoloration.
