Review: Worth it? The K-beauty Brand – 107 Beauty: Toner, Mist and Cream

Hello all!

I received these products from the New K-Beauty Brand: 107 Beauty. The brand was started by Chloe Kwak, and it focuses on gentle formulations (not hugely acidic / hard-hitting products). So sensitive skins are a target audience when it comes to this brand.

I received the Micro Drizzle – Hydro Toner, the Dewy Glow – Serum Mist, and the Everyday Plump – Hydro Cream. This is from their Essentials Line which (fun fact): the colour gradation from lightest to darkest shade of pink shows the order in which you should use these products!

This brand is Vegan + Cruelty- Free. These particular products are Fragrance and Essential oil-free.

They also recently came out with a Vitamin C Serum from their new, extended Soseo range (that is fragrance + eo free) which looks like it would be a good try!

The brand specifically focuses on fermented ingredients, to help reinforce and repair the skin’s barrier, to reduce sensitivity.

Fermented Vinegar is the key, core ingredient in this brand (fermented for seven years and then extracted/purified to try and hold the most benefits of the vinegar possible. Fermented Vinegar is used by the brand allegedly, due to its inclusion of probiotics, vitamins and exfoliating properties (vinegar has been used for many, many years to help with skin issues). in terms of the science: Vinegar contains Acetic acid. It is anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial and antifungal. However, too much use of vinegar can irritate the skin, but the fermented vinegar here is measured and added in appropriate, skin-beneficial quantities.

Micro Drizzle Hydro Toner

Volume: 180ml

Price: £29.06

Available at: 107 Beauty: LINK / The Beauty Within: LINK

What is it + What does it do?: A lightweight toner meant to hydrate + prep the skin after cleansing. Aimed at all skin types.

  • I agree that anyone could use this toner. It does almost feel slightly oily, so oily skins may not prefer the texture as much as Oily-Combo / Normal + Dry Skins.

Directions + How I use it: Apply in the AM + PM after cleansing. Apply onto the face either with a cotton pad (sweep outwards) or with the fingers.

  • I applied this in the PM. I could apply it with a pad and/or with my fingers. It actually worked well using this with my Foreo Bear.
The box this product came in

Packaging: Plastic Bottle with a Screw-on Lid (doesn’t click shut). This also came with a Hygiene seal.

Key Ingredients: Grape Fruit Extract (Soothing + Antioxidant), Hyaluronic Acid + Hyaluronic Acid Derivative (Hydrating), Panthenol + Beta-Glucan + Allantoin (Hydrating + Soothing), Betaine (Hydrating / Moisturising).

Full Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Glycereth-26, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Camellia Japonica Leaf Extract, Betaine, Beta-Glucan, Allantoin, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Fruit Extract, Vinegar, 1,2-Hexanediol, Boswellia Serrata Resin Extract, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin.

  • So as you can see from this overall formula; it works to Hydrate and soothe the skin. Two forms of Hyaluronic Acid are included which helps reduce any stickiness.


  • As you can see, this is not sticky, not tacky and ALMOST feels greasy/oily, but doesn’t quite get there. This simply runs down the hand, and absorbs decently. It doesn’t absorb immediately, but it also doesn’t sit on top of my face thickly (See below for Video Swatch).
  • It feels similar to the Dear Klairs Oil in Water Drop Ampoule (Review).
  • This does NOT ball up.

(Left) No Product VS (Right) Product:

  • Hopefully you can see the almost oil-like texture / finish of this product.

Video Swatch:

  • As you can see from the above, this is a lightweight toner, but doesn’t totally disappear into the skin, adding some moisture.

Scent: This doesn’t have a scent to me (not like the mist).

Overall + My Experience: A hydrating toner that has been almost uncomfortable to use, but didn’t cross that line for my oily-combo skin. In fact, I just finished the bottle (was using for 2 Months and using in conjunction with my Foreo Bear). I wouldn’t recommend this to oilier skins in hot and humid weather, but it could be a nice hydrating + moisturising toner in the winter. Dry and Normal Skins would find this comfortable. It has a unique texture too. Also, this did not sting or irritate my skin.

Dupe?: I haven’t tried a toner that feels this similar in texture, but close dupes are the Rovectin Activating Treatment Essence and the Dear, Klairs Fundamental Ampoule (in terms of that ”almost greasy” feel to them).


Dewy Glow – Serum Mist:

Volume: 50ml

Price: £48.16

Available at: 107 Beauty: LINK / The Beauty Within: LINK

What is it + What does it do?: The brand states that this is a hydrating and nourishing serum that was formulated into a mist so that it would be easier to use, and quicker for absorption into the skin. This fruity-scent mist is aimed at all skin types and works on top of SPF and makeup.

  • Due to the lightweight nature of this product, I do think Oily Skins > Dry Skins would prefer this.

Directions + How I use it: ”Use in the AM + PM after cleansing + toning. Can be sprayed on top of SPF (please make sure the SPF is set before spraying) and makeup. In the PM, apply an extra mist layer for extra hydration. For me, I used this after toning and used 3-4 sprays to cover the whole face.

Note: This ca also be used on airplanes + during the winter to hydrate the skin (i.e. this mist can be used as a refresher throughout the day).

Key Ingredients: Adenosine (Skin-barrier reinforcing), Arbutin (Skin Brightening), Allantoin + Ivy Extract (Soothing), Rice Ferment Filtrate + Peach Extract (Moisturising + Humectants). Safflower Extract (Moisturising), Vinegar (Antimicrobial), Melon Extract (Hydrating), Rose Water (Hydrating), Soymilk Ferment Filtrate (Moisturising).

Note: This contains Rose Water (in case you allergic).

Full Ingredients: utin, Water, PEG/PPG-18/4 Copolymer, Pentylene Glycol, Lactobacillus/Soymilk Ferment Filtrate, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Allantoin, Adenosine, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Flower Extract, Pyrus Communis (Pear) Fruit Extract, Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit Extract, Hedera Helix (Ivy) Leaf/Stem Extract, Pimpinella Anisum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Vinegar, Cucumis Melo (Melon) Fruit Extract, Phenoxyethanol (0.36%).

  • Arbutin is a notable ingredient in here, which helps brighten the skin. However the addition of plant + fruit extracts that are both calming and hydrating, is a nice addition for a mist.


  • As you can see, this does cover the hand full of product. The product is liquid so it does bunch up and then slide down the hand (see video swatch below).
  • This is lightweight and hydrating. The nozzle disperses this lightly, and I can cover my face with 3-4 pumps).
  • This does not feel sticky or tacky or greasy (just a watery texture + feeling)
  • This also dries down relatively quickly (quicker than the toner)
Do you see how this covers the hand

No Product (Left) VS Product (Right)

  • This does not feel sticky on the skin.

Video Swatch:

  • As you can see from the texture and spray nozzle; this doesn’t attack the skin, but releases an adequate amount of product onto the skin.

Scent: This is Fragrance + EO Free, HOWEVER (I suspect due to the Rose Water), this has a lovely sweet scent to it! It’s not too strong or off-putting. It makes me understand why people would simply use this mist throughout the day to freshen up.

Dupes: Nothing I’ve tried has the same scent as this, however in terms of a Similar Texture + Effect: The Indeed Labs Hydraluron Mist (HERE), or slightly more simple; the Dear Klairs Fundamental Mist.

Overall Effect + Experience: This product did not irritate my skin. I really enjoyed this pleasant fruit (almost vanilla-like) scent. As this is a mist however, it disperses the product over the face, so it’s very lightweight and absorbs quickly, which means 1. It’s not that hydrating or moisturising and 2. if you want to keep covering your face and adding layers, it’ll use up more product than usual. So this has definitely been pleasant to use, but not that necessary for me, when I could simply be applying a more potent serum after my toner. But I will definitely continue to use this/use this up as it does feel refreshing and calming on the skin, and I can apply it on top of makeup.

Everyday Plump – Hydro Cream

Volume: 50ml

Price: £31.55

Available at: 107 Beauty: LINK / The Beauty Within: LINK

What is it + What does it do?: ”The brand states that this is a lightweight, silky cream-to-gel formula that’s rich without being heavy / greasy.” For all Skin Types.

  • Due to the nature of this product, Dry Skins > Oily Skins may prefer this product.

Directions + How I use it: ”Use in the AM + PM after cleansing + toning. Massage a ‘dime-sized’ amount onto the face and neck. Pat product into the skin. Note: You can mix this in with your foundation for a dewy finish.” I applied this in the PM, OR (as I found this too thick for me), I used this as a makeup primer, which was very suitable as this is creamy and does not ball up

  • As you can see, this product has a milky, creamy look to it.

Key Ingredients: Lactobacillus Fruit Ferment Extract (Exfoliating), Squalane (suitable for acne-prone skins, oil-like substance that is an moisturising), Arginine (Reinforces the skin’s barrier), Hyaluronic Acid (Hydrating), Panthenol (Soothing + Moisturising), Allantoin (Soothing), Beta-Glucan (Soothing + Moisturising), Ivy Extract (Soothing), Trehalose (Hydrating), Peach (Moisturising), Polyglutamic Acid (Moisturising + Hydrating).

  • I like the inclusion of Squalane (works for blemish-prone skin), and the addition of soothing ingredients. Polyglutamic Acid is an interesting addition, to help hydrate the skin.

Full Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Cyclopentasiloxane, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Squalane, Bacillus/Corchorus Olitorius Leaf Ferment Filtrate, PEG/PPG-18/4 Copolymer, Isostearyl Isostearate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Cetyl Alcohol, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Cyclohexasiloxane, Polysorbate 60, Dimethiconol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Sorbitan Stearate, Lactobacillus/Soymilk Ferment Filtrate, Lactobacillus/Punica Granatum Fruit Ferment Extract, Arginine, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Lactobacillus/Panax Ginseng Root Ferment Filtrate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Panthenol, Trehalose, Allantoin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Polyglutamic Acid, Pyrus Communis (Pear) Fruit Extract, Beta-Glucan, Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit Extract, Hedera Helix (Ivy) Leaf/Stem Extract, Pimpinella Anisum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Vinegar, Cucumis Melo (Melon) Fruit Extract, Phenoxyethanol (0.52%).

Note: As you can see, the formulation contains hydrating and moisturising ingredients. The base is water, and you can see that water-base when looking at the texture pictures below.



  • You can see the creamy texture of this product, and that watery base. Hopefully you can see the thickness of it, as this can feel quite heavy for oily and oily-combo skins.
  • This is NOT sticky or tacky. It’s smooth.
  • This doesn’t feel oily BUT it feels very creamy.

No Product (Left) VS Product (Right)


Video Swatch:

  • As you can see, this has a watery-base, but it is still a creamy and emollient moisturiser. It’s not sticky or tacky, but it is creamy.

Scent: I don’t get much of a scent from this (not like the mist).

Dupes?: The Laneige Cica Sleeping Mask, The Anua Birch Moisture Cream, The April Skin Artemesia Hydra Gel Cream.

Slightly Lighter Version: The Krave Oat So Simple Water Cream (Review) OR The Inkey List Omega Water Cream (Review).

Overall Effect + Experience: A Moisturising cream that although is gentle and moisturising (did not irritate my skin), is too thick for my oily-combo skin. Dry skins could enjoy this. I recommend this as a makeup primer as this does not ball up and isn’t sticky or tacky (smooth finish and fills in fine-lines for a smooth makeup application).


These products have been fine to use (didn’t worsen or irritate my skin, and felt hydrating/gentle). However, for my Oily-Combination Skin, I found the Cream too thick and uncomfortable overall to wear. If I had to repurchase anything, it would be the toner, as I found it to have a unique texture, and did help hydrate my skin. I do think the mist smells lovely and has been a nice addition, but overall not necessary and I would not replace it for my regular serums. Overall, I will continue to try out the brand if they release any more fragrance + essential oil-free products (like their new Vitamin C Serum).

My Skin Type: I am acne prone and have slightly dehydrated combo skin. My skin is usually tight where the cheeks and eye area is and the outer parts of my face. My T zone is oily. My skin isn’t a fan of thick/heavy formulas so I opt for lightweight formulas to prevent it from clogging up. My skin doesn’t like essential oils either and I try to avoid fragrance when I can.
