If you’re familiar with the Korean skincare community, then you might be somewhat familiar with a skincare product by Son & Park that has become quite the global sensation. We love seeing Korean skincare blowing up in the beauty industry, but when it comes to costs, we certainly love seeing affordability as well.

If you’re looking for a just as effective skin toner that will be a little easier on your budget than the Son Park Beauty Water, then you have come to the right place to find your comparable dupe that is still in the realm of K-beauty!

Son & Park Beauty Water Break Down


This global skincare product has become popular due to its wonderful skin hydrating, cleansing, mild exfoliating and pH balancing effects that it has on the skin. What makes it so effective is the mass amount of natural plant extracts that encourage the features this beauty water hold dear while maintaining a gentle effect on the skin. The Son Park  Beauty Water is one toner you need to be sure you carefully read the ingredients on. Although it claims to be gentle, this toner does contain an abundance of oils, extracts and essentials oils, which can, in turn, be irritating for those with hypersensitive skin. Below are some key ingredients we love to see, as well as some ingredients we find can be tricky for those with sensitivities:

Ingredients to Watch Out For

  • Orange Fruit Extract
  • Orange Oil
  • Lavendar Oil
  • Jasmine Oil
  • Citiric Acid

  • Witch Hazel
  • Butylene Glycol

The Son Park Beauty Water has a vast list of a complex formulation of essential oils, natural oils, cleansing agents, waters, and hydrators. However, within this list, there are multiple ingredients that can lead to irritation alongside its benefits. So before to take the plunge and splurge on this product, make sure you read the ingredients list. If you have found some culprits in the product in which you know will cause you irritation, then we have a couple recommendations for some Korean skincare dupes that will give you the same benefits, with a friendlier formula and price point!

The breakdown? This toner can be a make it or break it! If you’re sensitive to essential oils or fragrances, this might be one to pass up on as the formula is mostly fragrance based essential oils and extracts. View the cosDNA ingredients analysis to view the skin safety and risks of this product.
