Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner

Thursday, August 31, 2017

Good morning!

Do you ever find yourself buying skincare cult favorites, hoping for the same result that others rave about? Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner is possibly one of the most popular toners in kbeauty. It's always wining some sort of award or mention, product of the month or year. With such accolades, I found it impossible to resist. Having used it for the last few months, I figure that's long enough to write a review.

The Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner comes in a really hefty amber glass bottle that comes in a simple brown box with purple lettering. The texture of the toner is like a thick water, not quite as gel like as the premium HadaLabo Lotion, but heavier than the regular and light versions. 

The toner absorbs rapidly into the face. It makes serveral claims. It is supposed to be pH balancing, deeply moisturizing as well as cleansing and soothing. Ingredients:
Water, Butylene Glycol, Dimethyl Sulfone, Betaine, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Natto Gum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Disodium EDTA, Centella Asiatica Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Polyquaternium-51, Chlorphenesin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Carbomer, Panthenol, Arginine, Luffa Cylindrica Fruit/Leaf/Stem Extract, Beta-Glucan, Althaea Rosea Flower Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Lysine HCL, Proline, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Acetyl Methionine, Theanine, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil, Copper Tripeptide-1

I've used it the three ways; using small soaked cotton pads to wipe down my face, patting it on with my palms and leaving large toner saturated pads on my face as a quick DIY mask. While the thick watery liquid leaves my face feeling cleaning and refreshed, it really doesn't put any lasting moisture into my skin. After ten minutes (if I don't flood my face with other products), my skin starts to tighten and dehydrate.

It also stings my lips a bit. Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner reminds me of some really unimpressive essence from a sheet mask that makes you question if applying the mask was worth the effort. Used for almost ten weeks (though not every day), not seeing much of a difference in my skin in any way.

A crowd favorite, but I'm not finding it all like I thought it would be. It does leave my face slightly supple but I have quite a few other watery type products that I prefer. While these are not all toners, let me just name a few products off the top of my head; 2Sol Black Tea Essence, Oolu Jasmine Moisture Liquid, Manyo Factory Bifida Mist. The most flattering thing I can say about the Klairs Supple toner is that at least it didn't irritate my face (well I guess that's not true, my lips hurt).

After using this for a few months, I ended up rehoming this toner to a friend, in the hopes that it may perform for another in a way it never did for me.

This toner is about $16-24 for a 180mL bottle. If you're in the US, particularly the east coast, SokoGlam is a great place to purchase your Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner. I've ordered from them before here in CA with really speedy processing and delivery. Currently an Amazon Prime deal for $16.90. Also goes for around $20 on YesStyle.
