Toner is one of the easiest products that can suit my skin well. I have found several toners that do not irritate my skin. Unlike moisturizer, so far, I still stick to my Clinique moisture surge and blossom jeju pink camelia soombi, since nothing else match my skin. Anyway, for hydrating toner, I really love these two toners Klairs supple preparation facial toner Vs Isntree hyaluronic acid toner.
I used to only know astringent toner, that contains alcohol and was used to pick up the left-over dirt after washing my face. I have oily skin, back then I thought it make sense to use astringent toner after fa face wash. My skin was feeling squeaky clean and a bit dry (well duh). The idea of hydrating toner on oily skin used to scare me, I was thinking what if it makes my skin super sticky. Then I find this gem, Klairs supple preparation facial toner. My first ever hydrating toner. I used Klairs supple preparation facial toner for 3 years.
Korean skincare is a little bit hard to purchase a few years back. Unlike now, Klairs has an official store in Indonesia and you can purchase it very easy. There was a time that imported skincare to Indonesia is being held by the customs department for a few months. The demand for that toner is pretty high, a lot of people love the toner. Luckily that time, I have 2 bottles of supple preparation toner to survive, LOL. The constant “out of stock” status in some of my favorite online shops makes me so desperate to get my hands on Klairs toner. Such condition also makes klairs toner raise up.
That is when I decided to try out a new toner that is available in Indonesia. I tried a couple of hydrating toners, some toner that has a similar feel with Klairs supple preparation facial toner is the isntree hyaluronic acid toner. Here is the comparison between the two toners:

Klairs supple preparation facial toner is a great toner. The official store is selling sample size toner, if you haven’t try Klairs supple preparation facial toner, you could purchase the sample size first to see how your skin reacts to it. As for isntree hyaluronic acid toner, there is no sample size of the product except when they release the sakura version of for isntree hyaluronic acid toner. I think there are some online shops that offer a share in a jar for this toner, I do not know how hygienic it is but if you doubt it just buys the full size.
Klairs supple preparation facial toner also has the unscented version for people that do not like the smell of the original version, I have not tried the Klairs supple preparation unscented toner, but I think the benefit is the same with the original version. The only difference is; Klairs supple preparation unscented toner is gear towards people with sensitive skin by eliminating essential oil, natural fragrance and chemical fragrance from its ingredient list, it has a clear bottle packaging and the price is slightly higher which is Rp 310.000.
In terms of price, isntree hyaluronic acid toner is cheaper and has more product than Klairs supple preparation facial toner. Both are not really traveling friendly due to its bulky bottle, just pour it to a small traveling bottle container and you good to go. I cannot choose between these toners, I love it both. At the moment I am using isntree hyaluronic acid toner and have not to use Klair supple preparation toner for 6 months-ish now. Both toners have a mild formula that does not irritate my skin. I sometimes do a 7 skin method with these toners. Klairs supple preparation facial toner is more hydrating than isntree hyaluronic acid toner, so if you have dry skin perhaps Klairs supple preparation facial toner is more suitable for you.
