Today I will continue with the review of the Atoclassic Real Tonic skincare line which the overly lovely Jieun from Kokofash send out to me for reviewing purpose. Again my thanks to hear to give me so much time for the reviews! I really tested all the products thoroughly since May and I’m so happy to be able to write the reviews now. She sent me a total of 4 products, plus four different types of sheet mask, so I will make three separate reviews. I started with the Atoclassic Real Tonic Soothing Multi Cleanser and Soothing Origin Essence last time and today I will talk about the Atoclassic Real Tonic Calming Smart Lotion and Intensive Cream.
Atoclassic is a Korean hanbang brand with more than 100 years of experience, developed by a Korean herbal medicine doctor family of three generations. They opened their clinic in 1912 and been devoted to treating skin diseases and troubles since 1997 and by now there are 15 clinics across Korea. The same ingredients for treatments used in these clinics (both internal and external) have been used to create Atoclassic skincare line. The Real Tonics skincare range thereby focuses on enhancing complexion in whole.
The design of the brands products is simple, and yet really beautiful! All the products have white containers with black/grey flower and plant illustrations. There is a rosegolden ring around the cap of the products which makes it even more elegant and beautiful! All the products are packed in separate cardboard boxes with the similar beautiful design. I was absolutely stunned when I opened the box! The Atoclassic Real Tonic skincare products consist of a cleanser, an essence, a lotion and a cream. A toner is still being developed. Furthermore, there are 4 different sheet masks available. Here are my reviews for the Atoclassic Real Tonic Calming Smart Lotion and Intensive Cream:
Atoclassic Real Tonic Calming Smart Lotion
The Atoclassic Real Tonic Calming Smart Lotion is a lightweight lotion with a calming fragance according to the description. It is safe for all skintypes and also suited for under eye area, aswell for breastfeeding women. Below you can see the beautiful bottle of the Atoclassic Real Tonic Calming Smart Lotion.
The ingredients of the lotion are listed below. I can spot a lot of plant based extracts when taking a closer look here.
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Olivoyl Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Oleate, Glyceryl Stearate, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Hydroxide, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, PEG-100 Stearate, Butylene Glycol, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Stearic Acid, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, Sophora Angustifolia Root Extract, Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract, Angelica Gigas Root Extract, Cnidium Monnieri Fruit Extract, Forsythia Suspensa Fruit Extract, Lithospermum Erythrorhizon Root Extract, Sanguisorba Officinalis Root Extract, Xanthium Strumarium Fruit Extract, Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Coptis Chinensis Root Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Disodium EDTA, Allantoin, Xanthan Gum, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Ceramide 3, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Biosaccharide gum-1
You can look up the ingredients on COSDNA >>here<<. There are some typical key ingredients for hanbang included in this lotion. Lithospermum Erythrorhizon Root heals jaundice, baby boils & ageing spots. It is also said to have antiviral properties and detoxes by promoting blood circulation. Korean Angelica helps pus/skin trouble to get easily extruded, promotes skin’s radiance, and helps to produce new blood. Elm tree / Ulmus Davidiana root helps reduce puffiness and reduces insomnia, sinus, ageing spot and freckles. All these sound kind of promising already. On top it contains also licorice, ceramide and macadamia seed oil. there are some yellow labelled ingredients though, although in the minority so please be sure to patch test before you use it.
Like the cleanser and the essence the lotion comes in a pump bottle. The bottle contains 200 ml of product, which is huge and lasts for quite a bit. The texture is quite thick for a lotion I would say. Therefore I loved using it as my main moisturizer. It makes the skin feel hydrated and glowy, but absorbs fast into the skin. Although it has a rich consistency it is not sitting heavily on the skin but fully absorbs.
Atoclassic Real Tonic Calming Intensive Cream
The Atoclassic Real Tonic Calming Intensive Cream is the last step of your skincare routine. It is suited as night cream. In the morning it can be applied in addition to your lotion in the eye area for extra hydration. It is mildly formulated to be suited for all skincare types again.
The ingredients of the Atoclassic Real Tonic Calming Intensive Cream are listed below and also here the main components of the cream are plant-based.
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Betaine, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter, Hydrogenated vegetable Oil, Lecithin, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Cetearyl Glucoside, Glyceride Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Vitris Vinifera Seed Oil, Glycyrrhiza Glabra Root Extract, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, Sophora Angustifolia Root Extract, Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract, Angelica Gigas Root Extract, Cnidium Monnieri Fruit Extract, Forsythia suspensa Fruit extract, Lithospermum Erythrorhizon Root Extract, Sanguisorba Officinales Root Extract, Xanthium Strumarium Fruit Extract, Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Coptis Chinensis Root Extract, Trehalose, Beeswax, Tri-C14-15 Alkyl Citrate, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Limnanthes Alba Seed Oil, Imperata Cylindrica root Extract, Viscum Album Leaf Extract, Butylene Glycol, Stearic Acid, Olyacrylate-13, Polyisobutene, Polysorbarte 20, Caprylic/capric glycerides, Citrus Paradisi Fruit Extract, Caprylyl Glycol, Panthenol, Lavendula Angustifolia Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Disodium EDTA, Ceramide 3
You can look up the ingredients also on COSDNA >>here<<. There are similar key ingredients to the Calming Smart Lotion, but apart of these you will find more oils in this cream, like shea butter and macadamia oil and so on. These make the cream more rich than the lotion.
Other than the other products from the Atoclassic Real Tonic series, the Intensive Cream comes in a jar containing 50 ml. The jar comes with a plastic spatula for taking out the cream, which is great. Between the lid and the container is a second plastic lid. Compared to the already rich lotion this cream is even richer. It is definitely something for dry skintypes and for cold winters because it gives so much oils to your skin and protects it. It is too much for normal and oily skintypes, because the lotion fulfills already all the needs of moisture here. Since it is mildly formulated it needs a bit longer for absorption and has to be rubbed into the skin in circular motions to help the absorption.
I love the Atoclassic Real Tonic Calming Smart Lotion and Intensive Cream. They are perfectly suited for dry skintypes and formulated as rich creams. I was surprised to see that the lotion was not the usual milky thin lotion but really a rich cream already. On regular basis the lotion would have been totally sufficient for me. The cream is so much more rich that I loved using it when my skin felt tight or super dry. I guess it will be great for cold winters. Both formulations can be used under the eye, too, which is great. The Atoclassic Real Tonic Calming Smart Lotion retails for 52 Singapore Dollars which is around 38 US$ from Kokofash. The Atoclassic Real Tonic Calming Intensive Cream retails for 59 Singapore Dollars, which is around 42 US$. Kokofash ships also to US, Europe and Australia! What I really like about the store is that they offer you selected brands which are not at easily seen elsewhere in online stores. I really like how much effort is put into this online store. I hope you will stay tuned for the last reviews of the sheet masks from this skincare line, I really enjoyed using these so much, that I hope that you will share my excitement.
What is your first impression of this hanbang brand? Did you try anything from this brand already?
