Dear By Enprani Moistful Booskin (or the product I enjoy enough to forgive the name.)

Dear By Enprani Moistful Booskin
This product is pretty well known already (and I think most people who read blogs know why...) But despite using it a long time it took me a while to review. Part of the reason I guess is that what I'm going to say is mostly out there already. But I have other hydrating toners and I want a detailed basis for comparison to link to so I'm writing this anyway. I'm sorry if you are bored!
This product is a hydrating toner. You can't tell that from the name... well maybe I guess because it says "moist full" Man the name drives me crazy. I'm one of those people who will ask for "chicken wings" in a restaurant instead of whatever crazy super individual name the restaurant cooked up to make it seem more interesting. On the subject of chicken wings if you are a fan of buffalo wings don't order them in California. Buffalo sauce is more than tabasco and vinegar and blue cheese dressing should not at all resemble ranch. Both the sauce and dressing should be made fresh in house. The wings should be cooked so that the skin is crispy and the inside is tender. Breading... is unnecessary. When I order in California I just pick a different flavor and ask for them "very well done." When I bite into a wing I want to be thinking about how good it tastes not consciously thinking that I have chicken skin in my mouth (and I love chicken skin, if you are looking to cut calories man... skip something else.)
But I suppose no one is here for my amateur food critic "only NY can do some things right," ranting huh? You want to hear about human skin not chicken skin. I understand. I will proceed.
So aren't toners supposed to clear off excess left behind by cleansers?
Well in the Asian beauty world with the magic of double cleansing a toner doesn't really need to remove anything. Hydrating toners are meant to add moisture to the skin and in some cases (like this one,) help other products absorb better.
According to "When your skin is lacking in moisture your are more prone to premature aging. Prevent early signs of aging with Dear by Enprani Moistfull Booskin. This toner has a rich blend of hyaluronic acid and premium green collagen which effectively delivers moisture deep into the layers of skin. It provides twice the amount of intensive hydration to the skin to revel a more supple, firm texture. It is also specially formulated to supply long-lasting moisture and nourishment to keep the skin healthy and radiant

My take?

I love hyaluronic acid but I'm skeptical that topically applied collagen does anything. Also... premium green? I don't even know what that means. The part about giving skin a more supple, firm texture to keep it healthy and radiant is exactly what I'm after in a hydrating toner. I give that part a huge thumbs up. I'm a very heavy actives user with dry skin. I need all the moisture I can get.

How to use

Again memebox helps out "After cleansing your skin, pour an appropriate amount of the toner to a cotton pad. Gently wipe all over the face in circular motions and pat gently to allow better absorption."
My take?
I skip the cotton pad. This toner has a thicker texture so I just use my hands to apply. I think I would be wasting precious toner and cotton pads (I'm serious about my cotton OK?) I don't really think circular motions are necessary either (to each their own.) I just kind of smear it on my face, neck, and upper chest area. I skip the patting too. It soaks in just fine on it's own. Feel free to pat pat pat if you like though. It doesn't hurt and I've hard people find it fun.
So what's in it? 
Purified Water, Glycereth-7, Glycereth-26, Butylene Glycol, Dioscorea Japonica Root Extract, Sodium PCA, Beta Glukan, Hydrolyzed Corn Starch, Sucrose, Allantoin, Bis-Peg-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Glycerin, Anastatica Hierochuntica Extract, Caulerpa Lentillifera Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract, Propylene Glycol, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Mineral Water, Rose Flower Oil, Geranium Oil, Iris Germanica Root Extract, Jasmine Extract, Sandalwood Oil, Atlas Credarwood Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Ylang Ylang Flower Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Cinnamomum Camphora Bark Oil, Dipropylene Glycol PolyGlyceryl-4 Diisostearate/Poly Hydroxystearate/ Sebacate, Sodium Isostearate, Ethanol, Disodium EDTA, 1,2-Hexanediol, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Caprylhydroxamic Acid
My take? 
Based on the ingredients list alone I really should not be all that excited about this product.
Note: COSDNA is not infallible and you know your skin better than a website. Remember to patch test, introduce slowly, and skip this if you see something on the list you know bothers your skin.
How did it go for me?
I love it! The texture is thicker than water but not quite get. It feels smooth and slippery on my hands and then the rest of my skin as I pat it on. I'm told this smells like roses. Even... strongly like roses. I guess maybe because I've used the Mamonde Rose Water toner and my grandmother grew many kinds of roses at once when I was a kid I need a little more rose scent to feel slapped in the face. I just think it smells pleasant in a mild, calming, possibly floral kind of way. hen I've dried myself out like a prune.
It really does skin in fast enough to skip the patting and when I use this my products do soak in noticeably faster. It's part of my skin recovery kit w
Final Verdict?
I give this one 5/5. I'm glad I tried it even though the name is weird and the ingredient list didn't make me jump for joy. I've kept it on hand through other product testing and I keep coming back to it. Even if I find something more amazing, the price (plus frequent sales,) accessibility, and knowledge that if all else fails this one works are enough to keep me coming back. I'm not the type to have a massive panic over a discontinued product but... I would miss this one. I don't exactly have a replacement lined up at the moment. It's just a super product all on it's own.
1- I want both my money and the time I spent using this product back. It should never be used and if I encounter another in my collection it goes to the trash bin.
2- The product is nothing special but not horrible. I would use it again or give it away if I got it as a free sample.
3-The product is nice enough but I would not repurchase because I have many better options. May be better suited for others
4-I really like this and would likely repurchase if I do not find something better.
5-I love this product and it has become a staple in my collection.
So now you know what the numbers mean!
