WHY USE A SKIN ESSENCE IN YOUR ROUTINE?

Thursday, January 5, 2017


WHAT IS AN ESSENCE??


It is a nourishing silky water formula that's meant to penetrate deep into the skin with products to follow and boost their effectiveness. I first heard about an essence at work as one of the K-Beauty favorties. Honestly I had no clue what is was used for. Was it a toner or a Korean moisturizer? What really stood out to me was the beautiful glass bottle packaging. Other than that I never asked about it again. I felt a bit intimidated with not knowing what it was. It soon became out of sight out of mind. One day months later a friend of mine was having skin issues she really wanted to get a solid skincare routine. We both went into Sephora to visit my co-worker Peter (who is absolutely amazing BTW) He really helped treat her concerns and explained everything thoroughly. Soon he brought out the essence in my mind I was like yes! now I'm going to find out what it's used for. I immediately fell in love with it, and knew it was absolutely necessary to add into my skincare routine. I've seen a dramatic difference in my skin. It feels smoother, brighter, and more supple. This essence contains highly effective ingredients such as glycerin, maple tree sap, antioxidants, and fruit and soybean extract to name a few. It immediately absorbs into the skin for an instant boost of hydration. It is able to achieve a healthier glowing complexion and obtain the benefits from any product applied after wards. You will see more results from an essence as a result of it treating skin on a cellular level. It optimizes your skin's natural cell turnover rate (think skin regeneration) With continued use it will undeniably rejuvenate your skin. Beyond it's simple feeling of hydration and opulence there's an anti-aging element to an essence as well. That being said this product isn't a be-all product for someone with overproduction of sebum in there skin.
WHEN DO YOU APPLY IT?after double cleansing, treating, and toning you will apply 3-5 drops onto a damp face and neck in upward patting and pressing motion. Korean women are all about patting/tapping anything on there face. They recommend this style of technique because it amplifies absorption.

WHERE CAN YOU BUY IT?You can buy this at your local Sephora online or in-store. Or www.peachandlily.com the price ranges from $14 for 1.35 oz or $43 for 5.07 oz I have bought two of the small bottles and they have definitely lasted me awhile.

  1. I've never heard of essence! Do you use it night or morning like under make up? Or just at night in place or a nighttime moisturizer?!

    1. You can use it for both always before a serum and moisturizer. They're more concentrated and penetrate deeper into the skin and makes your skin more supple and definitely more youthful.
