Four Beauty Waters We Love
One of the best ways to adhere to a skincare program is to adapt it as a daily ritual, making it something that you enjoy to do. Removing your makeup after the end of a long day is a perfect way to unwind and check in, you know, self care. It’s’s easy to splash off cleanser and call it a day, but what about really treating yourself? Incorporating a beauty water, essence or toner is a great way to extend your skincare routine, because they more often than not enhance the products that follow. Here are some of the products we are loving as of late.
a beauty water Tip
Don’t apply beauty waters with a cotton pad, rather, apply a few drops to the palm of your hand and press the water into your skin This approach only uses the amount that you apply in your hand (read, no waste here) and it’s better for the environment.
Mamonde Hydrating Beauty Water
This heavenly scented beauty water incorporates 100% organic Damask roses, which are naturally high in hyaluronic acid, making it beneficial for both plumping and retaining moisture.

This water harnesses a potent antioxidant trio of green tea, rice and algae to stimulate cell turnover and leave skin noticeably more radiant and supple.

Circumference Active Botanical Refining Toner
Another great product from Circumference. We have waxed poetic about our love for this new brand—we chatted with the brand’s founder in the newest edition of the Journal—because all of the products make your skin look and feel amazing. Their Active Botanical Refining Toner combines a soothing blend of lavender hydrosol and aloe juice alongside a Proprietary Pore Refining Extract that tightens and reduces the size of pores.
