Review: Aqutop Dual Effect Signature Tone-up Water ★★★★☆

Aqutop Dual Effect Signature Tone-up Water

As the name suggests, Aqutop Dual Effect Signature Tone-Up Water claims to be a multi-toner that balances skin pH levels, reduces redness, and prepares the skin to better receive subsequent skincare. It contains “cell bi-unique water”, Aqutop’s signature water, instead of regular purified water. Claiming to absorb quickly, toning away rough skin, as well as specially designed for the 7-skin method, this toner contains:

  • Mung Bean Seed Extract – reduces wrinkles and provides anti-aging effects
  • Elecampane Flower Extract – brightens and returns skin glow
  • Phytosphingosine – relieves skin and speeds up recovery
  • Pantolactone – nourishes skin barrier
  • Hyaluronic Acid – deeply hydrates and maintains moisture within skin

Aqutop Dual Effect Signature Tone-up Water

250 ml of product came in a blue plastic bottle with a screw on cap. Product is dispensed through a pinhole dispenser via shaking. The toner comes out clear with a consistency that’s thicker than water yet still has fluidity. It has a strong floral fragrance that I’m not a huge fan of when it comes to skincare products.

Usage Instructions:

Start with a freshly cleansed face as the first step. Apply on a cotton ball or soft pad and swap the skin along its texture.

On my facial skin, I prefer to dispense around 4 drops into my palms, rub them together, then pat the product into my skin right after cleansing. Due to the slightly more viscous nature of the product, it takes a couple of minutes longer than a watery toner to absorb and dry down. As I have combo skin, this immediately feels very hydrating and moisturizing to me right now in the summer. But after letting it sit for a couple of minutes, my skin felt normal and is ready for the rest of my skincare products. The fragrance however, lingers around for quite some time. I found this rather annoying especially around bedtime.

As the days got hotter, I tend to neglect the skin on my body since applying a regular body lotion started to feel sticky and uncomfortable. Skipping body lotion has a more comfortable feel but my skin is starting to look dry, wrinkly, and dull. Then, a light bulb turned on in my head and I decided to pat this toner on my arms and legs. The amount of hydration this provided is the ideal balance I was looking for for my body. It is way lighter than a body lotion yet more hydrating than a regular toner. This is not a cost-effective method but the comfort that this toner provided to the skin on my body was worth it.

As a regular facial toner, this was mediocre but as a summer body hydrator, it was perfect.
