Product Review -- Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner

I haven't used a toner with any regularity since I was in my early twenties.

That's because in my experience, toners are generally a better fit for oily skin -- and even when my skin was an oil slick, most toners were seriously drying.

Even when they didn't dehydrate my skin like mad, they certainly weren't what you would call hydrating.

Now that my skin is normal to dry, I couldn't really imagine any reason to use a toner.

But then I read about the Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner in a blurb on the Allure website, and I was more than a little intrigued.

A deeply moisturizing toner that cleanses and soothes at the same time?

Sounds like the perfect thing for dehydrated, winter-irritated skin.

Klairs is a Korean skincare brand, so you can find their products on a variety of websites that sell Korean beauty and skincare products -- but it's also conveniently available on Amazon (with Prime shipping too) for about $16 to $18 (I paid $16.75 for it, but the price is now $18.50).

The Supple Preparation Facial Toner comes in a heavy, dark-colored plastic bottle that holds just over six ounces. It has a simple twist off cap, but there's a stopper inside the bottle's opening with just a small hole in the center, so you don't need to worry about the whole thing spilling out if you knock it over.

While the toner is a liquid, it is a thicker texture, which is probably why it is able to hydrate as effectively as it does. Klairs also credits the phyto-oligo for the moisturizing -- and I'll be honest, I don't know what the hell that is, but this stuff legit leaves the skin feeling more hydrated.

I know -- totally crazy, right?

Klairs also claims that the toner balances the skin's pH level, which allows your serum, moisturizer, and other treatments to work more effectively. I don't know if that's really true, but I will say that my skin has looked really good lately -- there are no dry flaky patches and it looks smoother and brighter -- so no complaints from me.

I add a little to a cotton pad and then sort of press it all over my face. It absorbs into the skin very quickly, so you don't have to wait too long to get to the next step of your skin care routine.

I think I can safely say I've found the first toner that I really love.

I wouldn't say this toner is for everyone, though -- folks with oily skin will definitely find it too hydrating. Those with combination skin, though, may like it just for the drier patches.

For me, it's definitely a real winner.

Have you tried the Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner? Are you a fan of toners?
