Humectant/Moisturizing Active Herbs Brightening Fragrance Potential Irritant
Niacinamide has been making a splash in the Western market over the last few years and has been splashing in Asian skincare for decades. This beauty powerhouse is the topical form of vitamin B3.
Several well-documented studies show that when used topically, niacinamide can:
- Strengthens the skin barrier by increasing ceramides and lipids, increasing stratum corneum thickness, and decreasing transepidermal water loss (TEWL);
- Improves the surface structure and smoothes out wrinkles;
- Boost hydration;
- Controls sebum production;
- Reduces acne;
- Calms redness and evens out red blotchiness;
- Improves skin texture;
- Lessens hyperpigmentation;
- Brightens sallowness of the skin;
- Treats rosacea, melasma and psoriasis.
Long story short, niacinamide does everything, and the good news is that it is well-tolerated by most skin types. To learn more, please read our Complete Guide on Niacinamide and How to Reduce Hyperpigmentation with Niacinamide.
Cnidium Officinale Root Extract
Cnidium Officinale Root Extract is an important oriental medicinal plant considered a great source of phthalides, polyphenols, and flavonoids. It acts as an antioxidant, skin-moisturizing, and whitening herb that combats inflammation in skin care.
Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil
Also called the Golden Solution, the oil helps give skin vitality and prevent moisture evaporation. It is suitable for anti-aging and firming.
Squalane, in skincare, is nourishing, moisturizing, preventing wrinkles, scarring, sun damage, and pigmentation.
Dioscorea Japonica Root Extract (Yam root extract):
Also called Yam root extract, it is a phyto-mucin component that forms a natural barrier and moisturizes.
Licorice is a potent antioxidant that evens skin tone and soothes sensitive skin. Studies also have shown it acts as an anticarcinogenic.
- Anti-Wrinkle Benefits. Adenosine stimulates collagen production and down-regulates collagen degradation.
- Skin restoration. Adenosine promotes dermal wound healing and tissue repair.
- Soothing. Adenosine decreases inflammation of the skin often experienced by people with sensitive skin or acne.
Sodium Hyaluronate is a natural moisturizing factor that strengthens the skin’s barrier. It has a smaller molecular size than hyaluronic acid, which can penetrate the skin better.
Ceramides are a family of lipids that account for 50% of the skin barrier (by weight), so they’re essential, right? Ceramides are crucial to:
- maintain the skin’s moisture levels;
- protect skin from external irritants making skin more resilient;
- help make skin more plump, juicy, radiant, and smooth;
- makes skin tolerate chemical exfoliation much better;
- skin is less likely to become irritated;
- because they prevent dehydration, ceramides are a great anti-aging ingredient;
- regulate the cell cycle and apoptosis (regulated cell death);
- beneficial for all skin types.
Heralded as skincare heroes, ceramides can now be found in cleansers, toners, serums, masks, moisturizers, and even hand creams.
I believe this is one of the most underrated ingredients in anti-aging skincare. Wrinkles form when the skin loses elasticity and collagen. Peptides are cell communicators that alert your skin to collagen loss so your body can produce more collagen. Theoretically, when peptides are applied topically, they penetrate your skin without damaging your cells so that your body receives the “More collagen, bro!” message, thus stimulating more collagen production wherever it is applied.
Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 Peptides did not earn notoriety in skincare until the beginning of 2000, when Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 was launched, proposing to reduce facial wrinkles. It is among the most commonly studied peptides in wrinkle attenuation and skin filling.
The Thank You Farmer Miracle Age Repair Toner* offers everything for dry skin! I give it a thumbs up!
Thank You Farmer Miracle Age Repair Toner comes in a purple glass bottle, is slightly transparent, and has a luxurious design and feel.
I love that the Thank You Farmer Miracle Age Repair Toner uses a pump bottle mechanism, not a dropper mechanism. Whilst I don’t mind a dropper, I find the pump quite quick and easy to use in the morning. The packaging is convenient because the usage is precise; there’s no spillage or overuse. There is no waste due to unnecessary cotton pads.
The content is protected due to lack of air contact, so no bacterial contamination exists.
One pump is generally enough to use on my entire face for daytime and evening; a little does go a long way with this toner. Therefore the 150ml toner lasts a lot.
The bottle is not travel-friendly; it is very heavy and can break. For traveling, I recommend buying the Thank You Farmer Miracle Age Repair Travel Set. When finished, the little containers can be sanitized and refilled with the original products.
A floral, luxurious scent. It feels therapeutic for the mind, also.
The Miracle Age Repair Toner has a thick viscous, chewy texture. The color is slightly whitish but blends in immediately. The Thank You Farmer Miracle Age Repair Toner is not sticky, nor does it leave any stickiness.
The absorption is divine, leaving it soft and supple.
My Experience with Miracle Age Repair Toner Review
My skin type and concerns
I have a normal – dry skin type, and I live in a temperate-continental climate with cold & dry winters and hot &dry summers.
When I started using the Thank You Farmer Miracle Age Repair Toner, my skin was extremely dehydrated due to a lack of care and harsh dry winter.
The results had the wow factor!
Thank You Farmer Miracle Age Repair Toner is genuinely hydrating, making me feel like my face had a glass of water. My skin feels plump and firm. My skin becomes glowy in a fresh and supple way, not in a greasy, slimy way.
It diminished the crepey skin and fine wrinkles around my eyes. Although packed with many active ingredients, it doesn’t sting my eyes, allowing me to apply it all over my face.
Thank You Farmer Miracle Age Repair Toner has minimized the pores on my face. I noticed this, especially on my nose, and it was pleasantly unexpected.
I use it morning and night. It is my HOLY GRAIL toner. We shall never part, and I hope it will never be reformulated.
The multi-purpose toner works wonderfully when you’re in a hurry—but doing your entire routine boosts the skin’s adhesiveness for the next care product.
Although destined for skin types on the dryer side, I feel it can benefit anyone. I think it can be used as an emulsion for oily skin types. If you’re looking for a brightening milky toner, I recommend you try Thank You Farmer Rice Pure Essential Toner.
How I use the Thank You Farmer Miracle Age Repair Toner
- Start by cleansing;
- First essence, exfoliating toner, mists, and other hydrating toners if in need of more pampering;
- Two pumps into the fingertips of your hand and spread on the entire face area, including the eyes and lips area;
- I pat Thank You Farmer Miracle Age Repair Toner on my face instead of swiping with a cotton pad;
- One more pump for neck and décolletage.
- I like to give my skin a full minute to fully absorb this power toner before moving on;
- At night I add a serum;
- Carry on with a moisturizing cream, lotion, or emulsion as desired;
- In the mornings, don’t forget SPF;
I loved the toner so much that I repurchased it and tried everything from the Thank You Farmer Miracle Age line: eye cream, serum, emulsion, cream, and mask. Reviews will be coming up soon.
- truly hydrates
- smells amazing
- crepey skin gone
- not travel friendly
The Thank You Farmer Miracle Age Repair Toner is a multi-purpose product doing the job of skin (toner in Asia), lotion, and essence all in one bottle.
Will I repurchase Miracle Age Repair Toner?
YES. It is my holy grail, and I always have one more unopened bottle on my shelf.

I was not paid for this review or received it as a gift.
As always, you do you, be kind to your skin and yourself!
Remember that every person’s skin and skin type is different, so what might work for me might not work for you, and vice versa.
So before trying a new product, doing a little research first pays. Pay special attention to ingredients that you might react to.
Doing a patch test is always a good idea. Unsure? Best to consult your dermatologist.
Happy skin experimenting!
