As usually it started on day when I was just browsing through Qoo10.sg when I saw the deal for Son & Park’s Beauty Water – a dual purpose toner and make-up remover. With all the hype on this product, I decided to try it out since there was a promo and it was going at S$32.90 per bottle and if you bought 2 bottles, shipping was free. It’s selling on SokoGlam for US$30, which is about S$42. So it was a really tempting offer. Needless to say I bought 2 bottles, from which I saved about S$18 (not much but every since I become somewhat in ‘debt’ because of Beijing 101, every little dollar counts now).
So what is Beauty Water? Beauty Water is a multi-tasker, which acts as a toner and exfoliator with properties that not only cleanses, brightens and softens, but also hydrates your skin; gentle enough for daily use and good for all skin types… so the description states.

I’ve normal to oily skin and so far so good. The first application was a refreshing experience, no tingling or anything but it did feel clean(er). The only thing I have to gotten used to is the smell. It’s not a bad smell nor is it strong, rather it is rather faint and smells somewhat natural… just that the fragrances blended in together end up smelling weird to me initially. The citrus fragrance stops short of being refreshing (I think the lavender/willow bark/rose fragrance kind of clashes with the orange and papaya fragrances) which made it smell like it couldn’t decide being herbal or fruity. But like I said earlier on, the smell is neglect-able since it is not that strong and it’s a subjective thing.
How I used it:In the mornings and at the end of the day, after cleansing my face I would use a cotton pad to swipe across my face to remove any dirt which was not removed throughout the cleansing process. After that I’d just follow-up with my moisturizer, sunblock etc… Don’t forget the neck too!
Verdict: Is it really that fantastic as the reviews state it out to be? Well, clean pores are happy pores! 340ml can go a long ways though (about 3 months or so), and it isn't really that expensive (for such a big bottle too. This product works best to prep the skin for a dewy, fresh look, and I can definitely say that it does just that, especially early in the morning before putting on bb cream. So I guess I’ll be restocking this for the next time when I am done with my current bottles. If you are interested in trying it out, you can get it from Qoo10.sg here.
