One of the best toner. It seems to have a lot more ingredients than The Tonic thus leaving a slightly sticky feeling to the the skin. However it doesn't irritate my skin, leaves it moisturised like The Tonic and it is nice to know that there will be some extra benefits from using it than using other regular toners. I totally believe in the deconstructed waters. I realised that any of the La Mer products that contained it seems to absorb in a flash, their serums, toners and body lotions etc.... seemed to prove this point. Take for example for the body lotion, when I applied and trued to smooth it over, the water seems to sink right in within a few seconds and leaves the heavier coating on the outside. I felt the transformation of texture.

I use the Whitening Essence together with this product, so you can read up the results on my other review. I don't know how far this product works on its own so I will tell you that as a toner, it just feels like a regular, nice smelling product. It hasn't caused any irritation or other problems but it hasn't produced any positive results as well. After using it for 2 months with the essence, I have not experienced any whitening or fading of my scars/pigmentation/freckles. I will keep using it until my La Mer Whitening Set finishes but I doubt I'll repurchase it

This whitening water works well. It doesn't sting up my sensitive skin. I am not crazy about the grandma rosewater smell. The miracle broth, or whatever they put in the ingredients, works its miracle to brighten up my skin. I do use the whitening essence after. I see the results in a week. My skin is near flawless and I hope by the end of this expensive bottle is used up, my skin is all perfect.

I bought this as I recently decided to try CDLM for the first time, along with the new Whitening Essence and being the good lil consumer I am, I thought it best to buy the whole regime. Surprisingly, I'm glad that I did decide to incorporate this water (which is basically just a toner) into my kit. It feels beautiful upon application... cool and silky and it leaves my skin feeling lovely and soft and hydrated. So much so, that I generally wait a few minutes between applying this water before applying the Essence, as the moisture remains on my skin for some time. It feels very nourishing - similar to some of the LP toners I have tried. But over-all I would have to say I prefer this product as it leaves my skin soft and hydrated, but never greasy. I have already repurchased, and whilst La Mer continues to work for me, I think I will continue to use this.

I use is as a prelude to the Whitening Essence to prep the skin for the essence.
Price: SGD 130
Appearance: It is a clear liquid with the slightest tinge of sea green. Smells faintly of rose and a little like the creme de la mer.
Usage: You're meant to swipe this over your skin with a cotton pad but I find there's too much wastage. I poured mine into a spritzer bottle and spray it onto my face. This way it saves a lot of the liquid and also it refreshes my face just like the Evian Atomiser. Really does some prepping up for me.
Verdict: I can't see how this helps the absorption of the Whitening Essence, but when I use it, my skin feels very plumped and smooth, even before I put on the essence and the creme. This is rejuvenation indeed. Update 7/11/03: My skin's become brighter and clearer. Freckles have faded slightly. Skin is overall more radiant looking. I would give this 8.5/10, this plus the whitening essence are the best whitening products I've used so far.
