Even though it is quite gentle for the skin and works for my sensitive skin, it contains Alcohol and some PEGs and PPG. Nevertheless, their concentration is likely to lớn be very little, as most of the ingredients (except for PEG-7 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides) are at the bottom of the list.

The main concern of the PEG-7 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, in its turn, is its possible contamination with such potential carcinogens as Ethylene Oxide và 1,4-Dioxane. Nevertheless, some of the manufactures may have a policy on stripping down the contaminants, however, I couldn’t find any policy for Son & Park. Nevertheless, FDA considers PEG-7 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides as “designated as safe for general or specific, limited use in food“, since there is no strong evidence that PEGs & PPGs cause an adverse reaction khổng lồ the skin or health. However, to lớn be on the safe side, it’s better lớn avoid putting the product directly on broken skin.

How khổng lồ Use:

Beauty Water can be used multiple times a day, including your morning & night routine as well as for refreshing the skin in between. There are a few ways khổng lồ use Beauty Water.

Use it as an exfoliating toner by moistening a cotton pad & gently sweeping across the face. Use as a regular toner patting it into your skin before you apply your skin care products or lớn prep the skin before makeup application.

I prefer using it as my last “cleansing” step. I apply a little bit on a cotton pad, gently cleansing my face & neck. Besides, I also lượt thích to apply it before I put my makeup on since it gently smoothes my skin.

I’ve almost finished my full size (11.49 oz / 340 ml) bottle & it has lasted me for over 7 months & I think the remaining amount of the hàng hóa will last me another couple of months.

My Experience

As I mentioned, it feels lượt thích water on the skin và doesn’t leave any sticky feeling or residue. This K-beauty cult favorite product absorbs fast into the skin và gives me instantaneous glow.

Son & Park Beauty Water

I also love the packaging and the closure on the bottle since it prevents dispensing the excess product. I struggled to lớn find the exact name for this type of closure, but hope you understand from the picture. If you know the right word, just leave it in the comments! 

Overall, I loved this product a lot, & I’m likely to lớn repurchase it if I don’t find an alternative with “cleaner” danh mục of ingredients. 

You can also see me using this product in my latest clip on Youtube:

The retail price for Beauty Water is $30.

Bonus Tip: How I took these pictures

In stories on my Instagram account, I asked if you, guys, would lượt thích to see behind the scenes more, so this section is for you!

My initial goal was to lớn capture the bubble in the product. For that, I was using a tripod – his name is Slavik by the way, và my Nikon D800 with Nikkor 105 mm Micro lens. 

Excuse my “falling” #behindthescenes images, it’s quite hard to have only two arms outstretched in two different directions!


Some Technical Details

I’m a huge tín đồ of adding sun rays into the picture. You can achieve this by closing your aperture to lớn the max, in other words, choosing the highest number of your F stop. My lens gives me a chance to lớn close it down khổng lồ F/39! Can you imagine this?

Nevertheless, you have lớn be careful when you choose a high number of F stop, as all the dust that you have on the camera sensor will show on the picture. But you can always retouch the image, which is what I did, but it’s quite a time-consuming process, though.

This is a screenshot from Lightroom. All the grey rounds are the places I had khổng lồ retouch to lớn keep the photo “clean”! 

My remote control stopped working, so I had to lớn use a timer. I also attached an extra monitor from Neewer, so that I see what I’m shooting. I also had a reflector that I was trying lớn hold with my foot, but I’m sure it barely added any effect khổng lồ this. I definitely need to lớn invest in a stand.

Finally, I was experimenting!

The secret behind the background

I was shooting at home. It was a sunny day, around noon, and the sky had that perfect xanh color. I pointed the camera upwards and used the sky through the window as my background. Khổng lồ my surprise, the dirty window didn’t ruin my picture. On the contrary, it added a sophisticated background lớn the photo! It looks like I used an extra source of light and sprinkled water from the back – this is what I did for the picture below back in a day.
