Hanyul Lotion review

Photo Credits: from the Hanyul website


I first started using products from the Korean brand “Hanyul” in 2017 because of my mum’s recommendation. (Fun fact: Hanyul’s advertised by actress Kim So Hyun)

As someone who has a peculiar skin that’s sandpaper-dry after I wash my face and abundantly oily just by noon, I’ve always tried looking for a product that would improve my skin tone and break-outs.

After trying out 3 Hanyul products, I’d like to share my thoughts on them.

First, I tried out these 3:

  1. “Trouble toner”
  2. “Trouble cream”
  3. “Trouble spray” (for body)

Note: “trouble”= for skin acne/breakout, etc.

I’ve finished using the spray so I don’t have it at home anymore, but the cream and toner look like this:

  • Smell & texture
    • I like the cream because it doesn’t smell too strong. Strong smelling moisturizer somewhat tends to feel like it contains a lot of artificial substances. There is a very light scent.
    • The cream feels cool and soft, gel-like. The color is a slightly translucent white.
  • Effects on moisturizing & break-outs
    • I think this cream, at least for me, does the perfect job of moisturizing my skin without making it too oily. It’s always been a challenge for me to find a good moisturizer that would keep my skin moisturized (which is important to reduce break-outs) but not make my skin look too oily.
    • But different people have different types of skin, so I can’t guarantee everyone will benefit from this cream the same way I did.
  • Purchase
    • I bought it for about 12 000 won, which is approx S$13.80, from Korea. You can buy it on platforms like Q0010.sg for about S$25.62 or Amazon for about S$57.35.
    • Given that the cream improves my skin complexion quite visibly within the 2-3 times I use it, I think the price is definitely worth it.


  • Smell & texture
    • The toner also doesn’t have a strong scent. It’s just like water, so you can open the cap, dab it on your palms 2-3 times, and pat it on your skin.
  • Effects
    • I don’t know exactly if the toner does its job, but I do know that it’s very cooling on my skin and helps to “prepare” my skin before I put on the moisturizing cream.
  • Purchase
    • I bought it for about 20 000 won, which is approx S$23, from Korea. You can buy it on platforms like Q0100sg for about S$28 or Amazon for about S$60.15.
