I know the Klairs Supple Preparation Toner has a huge cult following in the realm of Asian skincare and since I am and always will be easily swayed by product claims and hypes, I added this on wishlist. However, I won a giveaway from KBeauty Cafe last year and one of the prices was this toner. Whoo! Now I can review it.

On top of that, Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner contains some key ingredients. Key ingredients like Phyto-Oligo helps to thoroughly moisturize the skin to help resolve skin dryness. Wheat amino acids help reduce inflammation in the skin and provide deep hydration.
The Supple Preparation Facial Toner comes in a brown plastic bottle containing 180 ml of product. It smells strongly of citrus and the clear fluid feels just a little bit thick against the skin. It doesn’t have a watery consistency but it’s also not thick enough to be considered gel-like. Despite the slight thickness of it, it doesn’t produce a tacky/sticky residue.
I feel that majority of its users just put it on their palms and pat it on the skin. I, on the other hand, pour it on a cotton pad to apply it on my face. I know I read somewhere that for dry skin, it’s better to use the palms but for oily skin, the use of a cotton pad helps in wiping off excess dirt or sebum from the skin. I just can’t remember right now where I read it, if it pertains to this specific toner, or other toners in general.
Anyway, this toner is hydrating enough but it never made my skin extra oily and whenever I use it, my skin has always felt so soft and smooth, even when I forego moisturizers or essences (but only when I have no plans to head out). I used this last month in my trip to South Korea. Th extremely cold temperature was a torture to my skin and I have a feeling one of the reasons I didn’t get dehydrated was because of this. Because of its texture, it doesn’t get absorbed right away but it also doesn’t take too long. Kind of like something in the middle. Furthermore, my skin has never reacted badly to it.
As far as toners go, this one was pretty good for me. But just so you guys know, this is one of the first toners I used that made me think of skipping some steps because of how hydrating it is. It certainly is more convenient if I’m feeling lazy but I’m not really a fan of the scent. If I weigh all those into consideration, it’s case of 50/50 for me. We’ll see how it goes once I finish this bottle.
Who else has tried this Korean toner? I’d like to hear your thoughts about it.
