LANEIGE Cream Skin Refiner, $38
This unique toner-cream hybrid has already gotten rave reviews in Korea where women love it for its super moisturising benefits.

In keeping with the latest “skip care” all you need is one to three layers after cleansing. You can also decant it into a spritz bottle and refresh your skin during the day.
