As summers are here so, I started picking up toners for my oily skin. The first one which I got is the Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner. Before this Korean toner caught my attention, I was never into toners as I found them full of alcohol, strong fragrance and watery base which does nothing other than just irritates my skin and nose.
I came across Klairs toner recently by seeing so much buzz around it over Internet and it has created a sudden urge in me to buy this product.
About the Product
Toners are meant to prep our skin in order to absorb everything that follows it. This toner from Klairs could be a boon for dry skin types. Oily and combination skin people like me can also include it in their summers' skincare routine.
Its texture is more like viscous in nature unlike any other toners which has watery or runny base. Though, it has viscous texture but it is extremely lightweight and absorbs quickly into our skin. It hydrates and calms our sensitive skin post cleansing and maintains the skin texture. It also has some anti-inflammatory properties that helps in reducing redness, calm up irritation and reduce acne causing impurities.
Also, the pH level of this toner is 5 which is almost same as the pH of our skin so, it helps in balancing pH as well. It has very mild sweet citrus like fragrance which is very calming and soothing.
The packaging is very minimalistic. It comes in dark colored bottle with a black screw cap. All the details are mentioned on the backside of the bottle and on the outer carton box. It has pinhole dispenser which makes it leak proof and we can dispense the product well without any unnecessary wastage.
Here are the details about some key Ingredients
Hyaluronic acid: Boosts and soothes skin and provides hydration
Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract: Has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties which helps in healing irritated skin, redness and burning sensations
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract: Aloe extract, known for soothing irritated skin.
Arginine: Anti-aging effects and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Centella extract: Has antioxidant properties
I have combination to oily skin in summers which is prone to acne. I prefer to use it in evenings as my PM routine and leaves it overnight. This way, it provides superior soothing, moisturization and hydration to my skin.
I generally takes very less amount of it and gently press the product over my face. The best thing is that, it doesn't clog our skin pores so, it never caused any irritation or breakouts to me.
It hydrates my skin from within without any heaviness and makes my skin look supple and plumpy.
My Ratings to Product
It retails for Rs 1430 (180 ml) but you can also have it in 30ml bottle size which costs for Rs. 350 only. I feel, 30ml would be a great choice to purchase as it will be more travel friendly.
Small 30ml travel size available
Helps brighten up skin
Heals irritated skin and reduces inflammation
Lightweight and non-greasy
Easily absorbed in our skin

Seeing the price of it, I would not say that it's a must buy and everyone should include it in their skincare routine but I know most people would really get benefit from it. It really helps in providing deep moisturization to your dehydrated skin. If you really want to give it a try then go for the small size bottle first which comes in 30ml and that packaging is pocket friendly too.
Also, those who are allergic to essential oils and fragrance may skip this variant and try their unscented version.
Would I repurchase?
Yes or may be not as I really want to try out the unscented variant next time.
