Toner uses to balance skin PH. It also hydrates the skin. After cleansing and exfoliating your skin needs hydration so toner provides your skin necessary hydration. It helps to prep skin for further process and make them more effective. Toner is more suitable to oily or acne prone skin. Its main purpose is to clean skin and shrink the skin's pores.

The essence is the heart of the Korean beauty routine. It's somehow similar to serum or booster but it's more watery then them so it's more similar to a toner but its purpose isn't cleansing. It helps in hydrating and balancing your skin PH. You don't have to dab a cotton pad in Korean essence and clean your face but you need to press it on your face with your hands, moving inside out. If you've got an overproduction of sebum or acne on your face then this product isn't suitable for your skin.
