I’m a big fan of cleansing waters – Bioderma or other if it’s a light liquid that can remove dirt and makeup I’ll try it. In my trip down the rabbit hole that is K-beauty I heard about the Son & Park Beauty Water. Claiming to cleanse, calm and nourish how could I not try it out? After a few good month of trial I can now present my thoughts.
Unlike some cleansing waters the Son & Park Beauty Water contains a few extra extracts for added oomph. Willow bark and papaya mean it can gently exfoliate dead skin cells for brightening action and a fresher face. For hydration there the addition of lavender and rose waters as well as orange fruit extract.
Here is the full ingredient list:
Water, Rose Damascena Flower Water, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Orange Fruit Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana Water, Butylene Glycol, Propanediol PEG-7 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Alcohol Denat., Xylitol, Phenoxyethanol, Decyl Glucoside, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, PPG-26-Buteth-26, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Citrate, Citric Acid, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel, Citrus Granolis Grapefruit Peel oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Cedrus Atlantica Bark Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Water, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Water, Copaifera Officinalis (Balsam Copaiba) Resin, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine), Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit/Seed Oil, Sodium Lactate, Sodium PCA, Artemisia Absinthium Extract, Rose Flower Oil, Propylene Glycol, Thuja Occidentalis Leaf Extract, Ferula Galbaniflua (Galbanum) Resin Oil, Malic Acid Sucrose Urea, Tartaric Acid, Origanum Majorana Leaf Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Salix Nigra (Willow) Bark Extract, Pelargonium Graveolens Extract, Mentha Rotundifolia Leaf Extract, Origanum Vulgare Leaf Extract, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Extract, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Leaf Extract, Mentha Spicata Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Benzyl Alcohol, Chlorphenesin, Methylparaben, Dehydroacetic Acid, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Propylparaben.
It not the most minimal of ingredient lists so watch out for any irritants. If you’ve got super sensitive skin maybe you’d rather skip this one.
In terms of packaging the bottle is quite big and takes a while to make a dent it. The top is a screw top, clumsy people beware of spilling, and dispenses the perfect amount of product onto a cotton pad. I only use this on my face and find the it leaves my skin refreshed and cleansed. It’s not the great for removing heavy makeup though. For me this is perfect on mornings where I’m feeling lazy or if I’m removing my makeup from the day and applying some for the evening.
Overall the Son & Park Beauty Water is a great product for refreshing the skin and for cleansing it lightly. There’s no strong scent to it which is a plus and I’ve found that it really calms my skin as well.
