Rated 4.84 out of 5 stars
I'm almost ashamed to admit that I've been stockpiling this. Also, I have it in various sizes - 180ml bottles, 30ml bottles, 3ml bottles. Basically I am able to bring with me wherever I go so that I never have to be without it. I even use it on my body because I've got really dry skin sometimes. I'm so uncomfortable with not using this that I feel as though I'm going to get a breakout if I use a different toner? Must be some warped psychological effect. I've used various toners before and none of them made me feel like something is happening. Most toner simply feel like overpriced water to me. Some are overly perfumed chemical smelling water, which I absolutely hate. Then I had the chance to try out this from one of the samples I received. This smells so organic and fragrance free. The texture is slightly more tacky than water but still viscous enough to be absorbed easily. I fell in love. As this toner feels so good, I don't even care about the cleansers I use anymore because I figured that any drugstore cleanser works since I'm going to be slapping this on immediately and it would adjust the pH level of my skin to a healthy range. This toner is mild, non-irritating, does not break me out. It is so mild that when it gets into my eye area, it doesn't not sting my tear ducts. In fact, I think a little entered my eyes just now when I used it, but I didn't feel anything. Either this has a numbing agent or it is simply very mild. So given how mild it is, this doesn't do anything to cure acne, FYI so don't be counting on that. This also doesn't minimise your pores. What this does really well is make your skin feel relieved and well moisturised after a thorough cleansing. I kind of noticed that the fine lines on my forehead seem to have reduced ever since I started using this toner. My forehead tends to be extremely dry and wrinkly. Now, it is more plumped and makeup no longer goes on patchy. I'm able to pull a better heist in conning people into thinking that I have stunning complexion. Regarding my method of application, I like to pour it into my palm and pat it in for half a minute. I don't see the value in using a cotton pad because I'm pretty good at cleansing my face and generally will not have leftover dirt or soap on my face after cleaning. So I feel that a cotton pad may be a waste of perfectly good toner. It's absorbing toner away from my skin. If there's one item you want to try from Klairs, it has to be this. I never cared for toners until I started using this.
I like it and I will continue to use it but I can't say that I would repurchase unless for some reason I were unable to get a better toner elsewhere. I don't have any issue with the scent or the essential oils and I have pretty sensitive skin and I am usually not a fan of essential oils but this doesn't irritate me at all. It isn't as hydrating as I would like but would be fine for normal skin or someone who isn't looking for hydration in their toner. I just use this after my acid toner then layer a moisturizing serum over it or maybe a hyaluronic acid over. I don't find it to be sticky, it sinks in to my skin nicely. I wish Ulta would not discontinue so many of the dear klairs products (rich moist soothing cream and the midnight blue calming cream are both amazing). It is so much more convenient to order from Ulta than from Hong Kong but if Ulta won't carry Korean skincare I have no other choice.

I recently changed my skin care routine, and this step seems to be one of the reasons my skin has improved. It's more evenly toned (you put it on FIRST before any creams etc) and hydrated than it's been in years. Even my husband noticed ( and how often does that happen?!). I 100 percent recommend.

i really wanted to like this toner but unfortunately for me, it caused me to breakout. the toner did everything it said it would do… moisturize, balance ph, etc. so for that reason, if you don't have acne prone skin, it's def worth a try.

I have already purchased two bottles of this toner and am currently purchasing my third. I absolutely love it! It leaves my dry skin hydrated and helps all of my other products absorb better. It has no harsh ingredients as far as I can tell so I use it every night. I would absolutely recommend it, especially to anyone else who needs a little extra hydration!

Really happy with this toner! I was previously using The Good Acids from Peach and Lily but felt like I was going through it too quickly. This has a thicker texture, not thick but not just liquid like most toners. It feels more substantial than a liquid toner and like the product goes further. I feel like this is so moisturizing too! I'll put it on and sometimes almost forget that I haven't finished my routine bc it just feels really nice. I'll be making this a permanent part of my routine.

A YouTuber I watch always raves about Klairs so I decided to give them a try, but this product made my face burn so bad. Caused redness and breakouts. I'm shocked there's so many great reviews.
Happy customer from Arizona
This toner is amazing. It gets rid of the redness in my skin and it instantly moisturizes my face. Make sure to read the instructions before using, this is not a toner from years ago. I will rebuy over and over as long as the company doesn't change the formula

OMG!!!! THIS STUFF IS AMAZING!! I went through a real rough patch,bad break up,starting all over,etc. I gained weight,my skin became atrocious (as you can see in the first picture.my skin was grey,dark circles,dry patches,pimples etc.. after the first use(second pic) NO LIE MY SKIN WAS GLOWING,THE DARK PATCHES LESSENED,AND I JUST FELT I LOOKED AMAZING!! I'm in love with this stuff. I have insanely sensitive skin this stuff didn't burn,over strip my skin,give me red patches,make me itchy or irritated. It seems to have evened my skin tone...and my pores seem to be a bit smaller. It's been I think 2 weeks, I use it every day and my skin is INCREDIBLE.better than it ever was and it used to be great! The last pic earlier tonight excuse anything it's my lady time so it doesn't combat period/hormonal stuff. But still super great!!
I can definitely see the hype around this product! I could see a difference in hydration and I could see myself repurchasing this product for sure.

I rarely rebuy products and almost never stick to a single brand or product long-term. I love trying new products and always have exacting standards so I'm always seeking the next best thing. I use the Korean 7-Step Method morning and night and have been seeking a really hydrating toner. I bought this one to reach an order minimum but wasn't super hopeful because I feel meh about some of Klairs other products. However, I instantly fell in love with this toner! It's a good light-medium consistency so rather than being watery or creamy, it's somewhere in between. It instantly hydrates my skin and sinks in without sitting on my skin surface. Especially as the winter months have been especially dry this year, this toner has helped tremendously in hydrating my skin to prevent dryness and peeling. As added bonuses, this toner is affordable and cruelty-free, which are both requirements for me to purchase a product. I have combination to dry skin and do get the occasional breakout from a new product but haven't had any breakout issues with this product. It is gentle and does not burn, sting, or have a strong smell. I don't think this toner is comparable to any other toner that I have tried and I plan to permanently incorporate it into my routine, though I'm unsure if I will do so as a day or night or seasonal-only toner. Highly recommend!

Loved this toner! I use it every morning and it does a great job prepping my skin for makeup. I love to slap on a million different products every morning, but I can comfortably just use this and moisturizer in the morning if I'm in a hurry and my skin looks great either way!
I have been so curious about this toner so I was thrilled to get an opportunity to try it out. I find it balances my combination skin's pH level and quickly absorbs well providing long lasting moisture. Its lightweight consistency doesn't feel sticky or heavy and leaves my skin feeling soft and supple.

First toner I've used at 40+ years old and I love it. Nice light layer after cleansing before moisturizing, feels great on skin especially in colder weather when your skin can dry quickly. Highly recommend, leaves skin soft and primed, esp for my dry /combo skin.

I love this toner! It's the best gentle, calming toner that gives me glowy, hydrated, plump skin. The texture is like a cross between that of a hyaluronic acid serum and a regular hydrating toner. I use another toner with either glycolic acid or witch hazel to remove excess dirt and makeup around the perimeter of my face after I second cleanse, then I pat this on using just my hands. About 3 drops is all I need for my whole face. A little goes a long way.
It's just a simple, very nice toner to apply. It almost feels cooling as it goes on. The scent is lovely; gentle, soothing and spa-like. I may have never discovered it had it not been for Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty. Very happy to have come upon it. It is now a staple product in my routine. Great price for the quality of the product, imo. I love the dark bottle and the label as well. The whole user experience is just A+.
Leah from Phoenix, Arizona
Absolutely love this toner. Leaves your skin soft and supple. Nice texture when applying- a bit thicker than traditional toner. Have been using it for about 3 weeks now and has definitely become a new staple.
I am so happy I took a chance on this toner it leaves my skin so soft and clean. And a really good deal for the amount you get. I have previously purchased Pauls Choice toner that is similar but cost $34 for 4oz! but this might even work better honestly.
olivia from CA
5/5 for the product but -2 stars due to the packaging. this is a great product that is hydrating. i have sensitive and acne prone skin and this did not break me out or cause an irritation. i've been using this daily for years and highly recommend this product. i DO NOT recommend buying from Ulta though. when i received it, the outer box was open, and smushed. the bottle inside was quite dusty as well. luckily the seal for the actual product was not broken.

My skin gets easily irritated if I fall off my routine. I used this item for ONE day (morning and night use) and my redness/ irritation was gone! I ordered this during the sale and have had issues with other brands of toners in the past giving me irritation/breaking me out. I decided to order it on sale to give it a chance, but even the full price is worth it!!
Alex from Chicago
Was in the market for new toner and came across this with its high review. I have sensitive skin and always broke out when trying new products. This hasn't broken me out yet (knock on wood). I use this as a part of my night routine, it's hydrating and doesn't have a strong scent to it (it does have a slight medicine smell but it goes away). It's definitely worth the 5 star ratings

I use this toner morning and night right after cleansing. It soaks right in and leaves my skin hydrated and glowing. Will repurchase again and again.
This is one of my holy grail toners when I started into my skincare journey. It not only smells good, I love how it gets quickly absorb by my skin and how I see the effects easily as early as a week compared to the other toners that I'm using. A must try indeed.
I have tried so many hydrating toners and this one is my absolute favorite! I love the thicker viscosity and it feels amazing on my skin. I like both the regular and unscented versions but it's worth noting that the fragrance is very subtle on this version. This toner is perfection in my view. Everybody should have a bottle, at least for those times when your skin needs a little extra love (but don't be surprised when you start reaching for it every day).
I never thought I'd like a toner as much as I like this one. It absorbs into my skin effortlessly and really smooth it out, creating a perfect canvas to apply serum. I've tried the unscented too and they both work just as good. If you're okay with scent then this is a great option. I can also layer this too if I want extra hydration.

This toner is lightly scented which I don't mind as it doesnt irritate my skin nor my sensitive nose uncomfortable. The texture is light and non-tacky, it makes a great first step to prep and hydrate my skin for the next steps.
This product was sent by wishtrend to do a product review and first that i noticed is that this product are very excellent and have a quality on its packaging! I love the toner slide on my skin and its give plump and it has hyaluronic acid content which can give new bound on my acne and dry skin. Since this product are very famous on other social media - its one of the top most best seller on the market. And its give a sexy saultry under neat makeup. I always put this while having a glam makeup since im a macro influencer beauty guru! I give this product 10/10 because this product give me a smooth texture and a nice skin too.
