What the brand says: Klair’s toner hydrates and calms sensitive skin post-cleansing and tidies the skin texture to smoothen while maintaining the optimal pH balance to help the absorption of other products as well. With various plant extracts and soothing ingredients blended together for a calming formula, the non-irritating, super hydrating toner can be used for sensitive skin as well. The skin glows brighter with higher moisture retention.
My Take on Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner:
Packaging: The toner comes in a sturdy amber bottle which is travel-friendly.
Texture: The toner isn’t thin like regular toners but is gel-like and is thick. Feels really hydrating on the skin and leaves behind no tacky residue.
Fragrance: The toner contains essential oils and smells floral-sweet.
How I use and after-effects: After cleansing, apply an appropriate amount to clean skin and use the heat of your palms to help the complete absorption. For dry areas, multiple applications are recommended. I love taking a generous amount on my palms and patting it onto my skin until fully absorbed.
Using a toner is essential after cleansing to hydrate skin and prepare it for optimal absorption of next set of skin care products. I have used a lot of toners till date and they either leave behind a sticky residue or shiny finish that I am not a big fan of. This particular toner literally hydrates my skin without even leaving behind any sort of sticky after-feel or shiny finish and the serums and moisturizers that I use on top sink into my skin effortlessly. My skin literally drinks this up and stays hydrated all night and day (after night time and day time routine). I always wake up to a hydrated and soft feeling skin! There are days I have even used 3-4 layers of this toner while sleeping in air-conditioned rooms to keep my skin plump and drenched! My skin did feel dry after using only 1 layer of this toner in dry weather and in air conditioned rooms so make sure you layer this up. My skin definitely looks clear and has a healthy dewiness that I absolutely love. My skin’s texture seems to have refined within a month of usage and I hardly get any acne. Makeup looks really healthy and skin does not dry out when you use matte cosmetic products. I am in love with this toner and I give this a big thumbs up. If you have oily-combination skin, this toner might even reduce the oiliness and shine as it did on my combination skin.
