One of my favorite clean K-beauty brands, HaruHaru WONDER has me in awe. It includes an uber-gentle cleansing gel, an amazingly lightweight oil, plus the biggest bottle of toner I’ve ever carried. Oh, and the entire line is surprisingly affordable.
And while we all love generous sizing and impressive pricing, what really has me coming back for more is the effective formulas, thanks to an intriguing star ingredient (black rice extract) and innovative technology.

What is black rice?
Once known as the “forbidden rice” in China, black rice is an ancient grain that was an exclusive delicacy for the wealthy and royals. Written in the Chinese medical book "Bonchoangmok" as a great delicacy in preventing aging by making the blood circulation flourish. Thankfully these days people worldwide can enjoy the powerful benefits of black rice in their diets, and in their skincare.
HaruHaru uses patented technology U.D.T. to ensures all of the skin-benefiting properties of black rice penetrates deep into the skin. This antioxidant-rich ingredient stars in most of the HaruHaru WONDER line. Black rice is packed with polyphenols and flavonoids, which protect skin against free radicals, like ultraviolet radiation and pollution, while promoting skin cell regeneration. Combined this with superstar hyaluronic acid and you’ve got an age-defying powerhouse.
Out of all the Haruharu WONDER products I’ve tried so far, this is definitely my favorite of them all and that is no surprise since this is Haruharu’s best selling product. This black rice toner is almost like an essence, lightweight but still has some body to it. It is super soothing and hydrating. It is perfect for layering, I could almost get away with using 4 layers of this and skip the rest of my routine if I really wanted to. The rice and hyaluronic acid are two of the best combos to combat dehydrated dry skin. It absorbs into the skin quickly and your skin instantly feels like there is a hydration shield keeping your skin from cracking.
Seriously can’t recommend this one enough!
I especially love Haruharu's Wonder Black Rice Moisture 5.5 Soft Cleansing Gel! This cleanser unscented, is super gentle while balancing the skin using soap-free, coconut-derived surfactants to remove dirt and oil from the skin's surface. Making this one especially great for sensitive skin types. Fermented black rice extract moisturizes and provides protective antioxidants while fermented bamboo shoots calm irritation to brighten and clarify. Added coco betaine, trehalose and Panax ginseng root extract further hydrate and strengthen the skin barrier.
I really love this facial oil. This is a super lightweight oil but is also very nourishing and doesn't leave you feeling like you got oil on your face. Jojoba, sunflower seed oil and sweet almond oil are a cocktail for success since they are very nourishing and hydrating. This will help seal in all your layers and moisturizer but it is not to replace your moisturizer, so please use AFTER your moisturizer.
