There are reasons why it is my most favorite product among this series. Read on to know why! You may also read here about my first product review on their wash-off mask too.

About Half Moon Eyes

The brand name itself is created by beauty director Lee Seung Hyun, where she got inspired from her half-moon shaped eyes. Eyes are like the window of the world, it captures women's hopes and desires to find the most beautiful side of themselves.

Here's the product range of Half Moon Eyes and the correct stages of using it.

Milky Jelly Toning Essence claims to have 3 in 1 functions where it acts as Toner + Booster + Essence in just one bottle.

3 in 1 Functions

Suitable for mild sensitive and oily skin

For me, I use it as a moist base toner since it contains tea tree leave water that optimized and lock skin protection in the meantime it softly tidying up your skin into regaining energy and vitality. I do have dry skin around my cheek area and oily skin around my T-zone area. 

Main Ingredients

Milky Jelly Toning Essence is a multifunctional all-in-one product. It can be used easily and conveniently as a makeup base. It contains silica powder component straightens up your skin texture by eliminates pore waste and dead skin cell on our skin. Not only that, it contains fig extract that maximises the absorption of nutrients on our skin too.


I love that it comes in a small and lightweight bottle. Transparent bottle packaging and there's really cute measurement print on the bottle too. It will keep you reminded how many product usages you have used! Seal packaging to secure the product nicely.

Texture and Scent

The texture of the product is so light and smooth!! To those who don't really fancy on rich texture for your skin, especially if you are oily to combination skin. This product might be up to your liking! Because it absorb to skin so quickly. There's super light sweet scent when you use the product. It feels really fresh and sweet when you apply it on your face.

Milky Jelly Toning Essence contains silica powder which required gently shake to mix up the products before using the product.

Since I will be using the product as a toner, I will pour few drops on my hand first. 

Next, I will gently dab it all over my face. When I was dabbing it on my face, I can start to feel the jelly and soft texture on my face. Makes me wanted to keep dabbing and use the product all over and over again.

This product does come with a box of cotton pad as well. But since I will use it as a toner for my skin. I'm not sure how you guys will prefer to put on toner on face. I will just pour few drops on my hand and gently pat all over on my face.

Overall Verdict

When the first time I apply, I can feel my skin is quite dry since the product absorb so quickly into my skin. But after few weeks of using this product, I can feel my skin so supple and soft like jelly whenever I apply this Milky Jelly Toning Essence!! I love that it absorbs and soak into my skin quickly but also able to gives this soft jelly skin texture for my skin. Since it contains fig which has excellent effects on anti-oxidant, it actually helps to cure pimples and inflammation area on my skin. With it silica powder, it also helps remove extra sebum around my nose area too. 

The Good

Pore Control
Remove excess sebum
"Boink Boink" Texture
Fast Absorption to our skin

The Bad
For people which is dry skin, you may find this product too dry and fast absorption to your face. In this case, you may apply hydration essence after applying Milky Jelly Toning Essence around your dry skin area.

Will I repurchase?
Yes, I will! Although the price of Milky Jelly Toning Essence is more than RM50, despite for its multi-functional products I would say it was really worth every penny.
