This is the 4th step in the Sulwhasoo process, to be used after the First Care Activating Serum
The Balancing Water is a toner, but the texture is a light gel that spreads easily and absorbs fast.
You don't need to use a cotton pad, otherwise you would need to use 3x as much and it's such a waste, just pat it on your face
It has a light herbal scent that is warming, calming and relaxing
Suitable for dry or combo to dry skin
It belongs to the Basic Line in Sulwhasoo and only provides hydration and moisture
It helps foundation to better stick on your face
It also controls oil and reduces acne
Since it's stored in a glass bottle, the gel is always in a cool temperature
I always prefer to use products that give an effect, such as whitening or anti-aging...
So for a Sulwhasoo toner, I would prefer using the Snowise EX Whitening Water or this one
Sulwhasoo Gentle Cleansing Oil --> Gentle Cleansing Foam --> First Care Activating Serum --> Essential Balancing Water / Snowise EX Whitening Water --> Essential Balancing Emulsion/ Snowise EX Whitening Fluid
