Review:
When I purchase the Hanasui during my Tokyo 2013 trip, I was just trying to stock up on Japanese  toners that are affordable. It was when I started to research the product then I realized more benefits.

There are two sizes for the product: 240ml is in a spray dispenser both while the 400ml is a cap bottle like pictured above. I purposely bought the bigger size because 1) I have spray bottles at home that I can pour into to use 2) I think it's a better value for the bigger bottle.

Although it's a multi-purpose product, I solely use it as a facial toner/lotion. I find it very refreshing and light. I use about 3-5 sprays directly to my face and neck prior to serums and moisturizers. There are no alcohol so it's not drying at all. It's not the most moisturizing facial toner/lotion I have however I think it's much better than just mineral water by itself due to all the beauty ingredients added such as fruit extracts and amino acids.

Overall I think it does its job well. It doesn't promote lasting results but can immediately refresh and provide moisture to the face. I don't think I will repurchase this product though.
