Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner Review
Good Morning! I hope you guys had a great weekend! I'm starting off the week with a review of the Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner*. I've mentioned this a few times in previous posts (here and here) so you know it is definitely a favorite in my book. This toner claims to "removes excess dirt and sebum while restoring pH balance. Amino acids reduce irritation and provide deep hydration." Check, check, and check!
I use this toner morning and night after cleansing my face. The purpose of using this toner in the morning is simply for added moisture so I pour it into my hands and gently pat into the skin. In the evenings I put this toner to work! I saturate a cotton pad just enough so that I can work it across my face smoothly. I swipe gently in circular motions and it picks up dead skin, skin plugs, and any extra gunk that wasn't washed off. I know it did its job when 1. my face looks clean and smooth and 2. the cotton pad is discolored from picking up all the gross stuff. You don't have to do this exfoliating process I just described, but I find it helps my skin absorb my next products way better. When there's nothing clogging your pores or creating a barrier on your skin, products will sink right in and do its job. :)
When I was younger, I used to think good toners were the ones that made your skin tingly because it meant that it was "working." Thank goodness I stopped doing that because all those alcohol toners were actually drying my skin out! This Klairs toner is so comfortable to use on my combo skin. It doesn't strip the skin, it doesn't tingle, and it doesn't make my skin feel irritated or raw. I am just left with a soft, smooth, clean face that is prepped for serum and moisturizer. I bet if I lived in a humid environment I could just use this toner and sunscreen and call it a day. This toner definitely lives up to its claims and my sensitive skin is a happy camper!
If you're shopping for a new toner definitely give this one a try! If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions please comment below- I'd love to hear from you! :)
