It’s not everyday that a game-changer lands on our desks, but that’s exactly what Mamonde’s Rosewater Toner proved to be the first time we swiped it. Instant holy grail!

We’ll admit we’re a little late to the party with this one: after all, fellow beauty devotees have been raving about this K-beauty marvel for years. They swear it’s one of the best things to come from skincare innovator AmorePacific in a while (for reference, AP is also home to Laneige and Innisfree), that it’s as effective as it is delightfully simple. It’s even been compared favorably to other, much pricier rose-infused beauty waters. The consensus is that it’s well worth your coin, since it gives you all the benefits of a luxury product while still being relatively budget-friendly. Made with 90.89% Bulgarian rose water, this gentle toner is hydrating and calming, giving your skin an ultra nourishing boost thanks to the freshness of its ingredients. For people who still think toners should be astringent to be effective, this one’s a non-stripping option that proves you can have cleansed skin without the tightness. Of course, it also smells distinctly of roses, but it’s not the kind of scent that will make sensitive noses itch. Likewise, it’s also compatible with sensitive skin, so those of you prone to redness or breakouts might want to give your complexion a drink of this.

At P850 for a 250ml bottle that’s this skin-saving, we’d say it’s a steal—but it also comes in a trial size for people who want to sample it first before committing. In any case, these 5-star customer reviews have us even more convinced that this should be on everyone’s top shelf. Scroll!


IT SMOOTHES OUT TEXTURE. “I’ve been using this toner for about 3 months and this is just the best toner I’ve ever used. I really noticed as soon as I started using this toner. It’s very moisturizing and made my skin texture really smooth! I use this with the rose water gel from Mamonde as well and the combination gave me a super smooth skin.” —Franzia, 21

IT’S GENTLE AND NON-DRYING. “I love this toner mainly because it smells so good! I can tell that this one is very gentle compared to those with alcohol in its ingredients. It leaves my skin feeling plump and hydrated. The texture is light and watery, ideal for the 7-skin method.” —B, 23

IT CHASES AWAY SKIN DULLNESS. “This toner is like magic on your face. It really gives my face that energy, whether I use it in the morning or after work, when my face becomes dull. It also smells so good, even just the scent is energizing to the senses. I sometimes use it as mask, too. It’s also brightening, which is a plus.” —Rochelle, 24
