I love multipurpose products. That being said, it’s very rare that one makes its way into my skincare stash. I’m wary of products that promise too much—like restaurants that claim to serve the best burgers in the world but also carry the most amazing pasta you’ve ever eaten and the “must have” sandwiches before you go.
So I tend to stick with cleansers that cleanse, toners and tone, exfoliators that exfoliate and hardly anything else. I realize that might add more steps and products to my routine, but it’s better than spending big bucks on a product that can’t do any of what it advertises.
However, one product has made it on my radar, and I’ve been trying it out long enough to say that I. am. In. love.
THE SON & PARK BEAUTY WATER
This huge bottle (11.5 oz or 340 ml) will last you a long time. I’ve been using it for the past month and a half, 1-2 times a day and I’ve made the smallest of dents.
The Son & Park Beauty Water can be used as a toner, cleanser, primer. I primarily use it as a toner, as well as sometimes after my cleanser when I have stubborn makeup (looking at you, waterproof mascara). You could use it as your cleanser, but I find it’s not strong enough to take off my full face of makeup. Maybe if you have light, no makeup makeup on it would be enough, but usually it’s best after cleansing to get rid of any gunk your cleanser couldn’t, while simultaneously balancing your skin.
It also boasts gentle exfoliation, which it lives up to. Using this every day, I can skip exfoliating during the week, unless my skin is breaking out (and while using this, has lessened). Plus, it doesn’t dry out my skin, actually keeping it hydrated. Yay for peeps with drier skin! 🙌
My skin has been consistently smoother as well, keeping my pores small and since it has helped in simplifying my skincare routine, there’s less chance of another product causing my skin to freak out.
For the size and most importantly, the benefits, the $30 price tag is completely reasonable. Packaging is simple & sleek, looking almost like frosted glass at first glance, but actually plastic, so still durable. There is a clean, floral smell, but it’s subtle and doesn’t linger upon application.
All in all, it’s a great product to help streamline your routine, that doesn’t wreak havoc on your skin, and is as simple as the packaging.
