I was moved to create this product when I saw something similar in the Korean beauty scene, because I loved the idea of a multifunctional product: something which cleanses, exfoliates and deeply nourishes at the same time. I usually tell people that if you want to only make one change to your routine to see the Sabbatical Beauty difference, just incorporate one of our Beauty Waters into your routine and you should see a glow coming on in a week or two.

This smorgasbord of delicious for your face is designed to refresh, hydrate, nourish, gently exfoliate and cleanse your skin, as well as to remove makeup. Beauty Water contains a tiny amount of surfactant (ingredients to cleanse your face) in the form of Hydrolyzed Silk, which gently cleanses your skin just with a few swipes of a cotton pad. To gently exfoliate your skin, Beauty Water contains a mixture of Alpha Hydroxy Acids from Starfruit, Passionfruit, Kiwi, Mangosteen, Pineapple, Lychee and Jujube, as well as calming and exfoliating White Willow Bark Extract. Once your skin is exfoliated and cleansed, it will enjoy nutrition from Rose Water (hydrating, soothing, anti-aging), Lavender Water (calming, soothing, astringent, healing), Yeast Extract (antioxidant rich, anti-aging, hydrating), Algae Extract (antioxidant rich, gentle, anti-aging) and Panthenol (Vitamin B5, extremely moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, helps build your moisture barrier.

We also have two variants of Beauty Water-- Mugwort Beauty Waterfor sensitive skin and Tea Tree Beauty Water for acne-prone skin.

  • Cleansing
  • Exfoliating
  • Deeply Nourishing

Beauty Water can be used as a first cleanser, a single cleanser (like when you don't want to do your whole routine) and a toner.

To use as a first cleanser - apply with a cotton pad and swipe on entire face, neck and décolleté, then follow with foaming cleanser.

To use as a single cleanser - follow steps above and then follow with rest of routine as desire.

To use as a toner - follow steps above after cleansing.

Note that the exfoliating fruit complex will make your skin more photosensitive so sunscreen is a mustwhile using this product.

Versatile toner

The feature that I like the most about this beauty water is that I can use it for first stage cleansing, and/or as a toner after my cleanser. It feels wonderful, too.

Amazing scent, truly cleans!

I'm usually very lazy and the face cleaning routine is always something I just want to get over with. I got a small size of this from my REVIVE pack, and this water has extended my routine but also made it a calming ritual for me morning and night. The scent is lovely, and I actually look forward to gently wiping my face with a cotton pad. I find that unless I use this, the "2nd step" cleanser (e.g. rose foaming cleanser") tends to not get absorbed as well. With that being said, I have pretty sensitive skin, and I do find this very stringent and potentially a bit drying. Personally I'm not a fan of "deep clean" - this is something I've tried to really move away from in recent years because I've felt more benefits from a stronger skin barrier and more clogged pores, than rubbing my skin raw with clear pores. I love this particular water though so I did purchase the full size, but prob will not use it every day.

Beauty Water is like a facial in a bottle

I am a new SB customer in 2021 after a friend raved about it for years. Started my trial with the dry skin Revive sampler kit that contains Beauty Water and knew after the first few uses that it would be a favorite! I have used a variety of astringents and toners and makeup removers for years, and SB Beauty Water tops anything I have tried thus far. It really cleans thoroughly, yet gently. No stinging for me, no sticky residue, and the scent is not flowery but fresh and natural without being too strong. I think of it as my own personal spa smell.

Good cleanser!

I use this sometimes when I'm too lazy to wash my face! It does cleans wonderfully and smells good but it makes my skin sting a bit. Although it goes away I don't use this everyday.

Perfect for a Quick Cleanse!

I ordered a travel size of beauty water in my first order about a year ago. Since then, I've ordered the full size twice--it's that good! My skin is a bit sensitive, and at first I was nervous that my skin would react. I had a bit of tingling at first, and a bit of redness. But, my skin quickly got used to beauty water, and now it's my go-to! It's perfect for a quick cleanse during the day when my face feels gunky, or for a quick cleanse at night when I don't have time/energy/etc. for a full routine. Plus, it smells amazing & feels silky on my skin!
