Shani Darden Skin Care

Sake Toning Essence


This brightening, mattifying formula is the best of a toner and essence in one formula. Many toners can strip skin. My alcohol-free formula provides treatment benefits without being harsh. It features Sake Water, a powerful antioxidant that brightens skin, and Sebocytine, which helps control oil production and refine the look of pores.

Formerly known as Daily Toning Essence.

Key Ingredients

Sake (Fermented rice water):

This powerful antioxidant helps soften and brighten skin.

Sebocytine (Rose Cannina Fruit Extract):

Helps control oil production while reducing the appearance of pore size.

Niacinamide (vitamin B3):

Diminishes the look of pores and helps even skin tone.


Sake is a powerful antioxidant that helps to naturally brighten the skin.


I recommend starting by using this at night and building up to morning and nightly use if needed.
