Ingredients List and CosDNA Analysis:

Klairs Daily Skin Softening Water Review ingredients

Klairs Daily Skin Softening Water has a very simple ingredients list. It has a good balance of gentle exfoliating and hydrating ingredients:

  • For hydration, it contains 45% of cucumber water, also has glycerin and pantolactone
  • For exfoliation, it contains 0.15% of citric acid (most gentle kind of AHA), Apple fruit water (rich in malic acid, an AHA) and Sugarcane Extract (natural source of glycolic acid, an AHA).

How to use:

If you have sensitive skin or dry skin or combination skin or have recently gone through skin damage phase or using any other actives like AHA solution, BHA solution, Retinol, Benzoyl Peroxide, Pure vitamin c serum, THEN USE the Klairs Daily Skin Softening Water only 1-4 times in a week at max, depending on how much your skin can tolerate.

If you are not using any other exfoliating product, and if you have oily and normal, you can use this daily as a night toner right after cleansing your face on clean dry skin, by dispensing some on a cotton pad and swipe the cotton pad across your face and then you can follow up with your other skincare products.

Avoid using it in the day time, especially if you happen to live in a tropical country and do always use sunscreen in the day time.

To counteract the dryness that may be caused by any acid exfoliator do use a Sheet mask in that routine, you can also use any moisturizing sleeping mask and always have a habit of having a hydrating product in a routine. I love the rovectin Lotion.

Klairs Daily Skin Softening Water  Comes in a huge translucent dark green bottle. I feel that they should cut down the size to maybe 200 ml, because with so many products in the market lately, I don’t think everyone will be able to finish this exfoliating water in a year.

Expiry: After opening use within 12 months.

Quantity: Huge 500 ml

Price: This is available for $27 on Wishtrend.com and I got it as a PR from beautybarn.in (India only) back in March. Hope to see it launch soon as and when the shipping resumes on beautybarn.

You can also get it from Yesstyle (global) & wishtrend.com

Consistency/ Texture / fragrance / Absorbability:

Klairs Daily Skin Softening Water has a watery consistency, it is 100% fragrance-free and for some reason, it does take a bit of extra few secs to sink into the skin completely. It leaves the skin smooth, soft, and strangely moist for an exfoliating toner.

Klairs Daily Skin Softening Water Review


I had been using it 2 times in a week from March 2020 to June 2020 and did see that my skin looked smooth and a little bright as well. I want to try it on a daily basis, but I am scared, but if I do, will definitely update here in the future. Overall, I am very happy with this product.


  1. Very gentle exfoliating toner, makes my skin smooth and a little bright as well.
  2. Doesn’t dry out my very dry skin.
  3. Has never irritated my sensitive & acne-prone skin.
  4. Cruelty-free.
  5. Alcohol-free.
  6. Paraben-Free.
  7. Vegan Friendly.
  8. Fragrance-Free.
  9. Essential Oil-free.


  1. Now this isn’t a con but more like a declaration for expectations you want to keep from this product. This acid toner works well on minor whitehead issues and preventing them. If you happen to have serious whitehead issues, I would recommend the Cosrx AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid.
In this video I have shared how I exfoliate my skin with Cosrx AHA whitehead power liquid, a potent Chemical exfoliator to reduce and prevent whiteheads.


Rating: 5 out of 5.

Do I recommend it? Yes! I highly recommend it everyone.

Will I repurchase? Hmm.. not for now! This bottle will last for ages! LOL!
