I'm a total skin care junkie, I'm not gonna lie, and I've been on the hunt for the right essence in my routine for my extremely oily skin... Well, even though my skin is oily, it's definitely very dehydrated since most western skin care companies just try to dry out oily skin types any way that they possibly can... (Dry skin is a lack of oil, but dehydrated skin lacks water and acts differently than dry skin. You can be oily and have dehydrated skin)... I've tried some of the essences from Missha, and I like them, but I didn't love them... It didn't matter what I tried really, nothing seemed to give me everything that I was looking for... Then, I found this and I am so glad I took the plunge! It feels devine when applying on your face and smells so light and fresh! It doesn't matter how many layers of it I put on either, it never gets sticky!! My skin drinks it in super fast and I'm able to move on to the rest of my skin care routine quickly! BEST OF ALL IS THE RESULTS!! Gone are the days where I have to pile on tons of makeup to cover up my active acne pimples! Even though it's very hydrating, it isn't so thick that it clogs your pores! It has really balanced my skin and now it produces far less sebum than I was before! I don't look in the mirror half way through my day and see a giant oily mess that I have to now fix! After just one week of adding this into my routine, MY HUSBAND told me that my skin was looking the clearest, brightest, and overall the healthiest he's ever seen me! I'm 2 months in now, and I don't bother with foundation anymore! It's even making my old acne scarring wayyyy less visible! My friends have all been complimenting me on MY SKIN, not my makeup, AND I even get stopped when I'm in the grocery store by complete strangers and asked what I do to my skin! I recommend this essence to every single person I talk to, because it was literally the key to it all! If you have oily, dehydrated, sensitive, acne prone skin, hyperpigmentation, scarring, redness or basically any skin issues, then you NEED this in your life! I know that it is really expensive up front, but you use such a little amount of it since it's so powerful and concentrated, that it lasts for ages! I am barely half way through my first bottle and I have been using it 2 times a day for the last 2 months! Sometimes, I use more than one layer too! If I compare how much I spent on my last essence while replacing it every month, this one comes in at 1/4 of the price! So even though it's more expensive up front, it costs me far less over all! I can't recommend this product enough, it's truly my holy grail skin care product! It has made me feel so much more confident and comfortable in my own skin! I couldn't be happier with the way my skin looks! Thank you so much! Please never discontinue my holy grail!
I am a licensed professional and I adore this product. It's somewhere between and essence and a hydrating toner and I am obsessed.
This stuff is seriously awesome. The texture combined with its ingredients are quite the experience. I love how hydrating it is without it being thick and weighing down my skin. I can definitely see an improvement in the elasticity of my skin has well as its overall health. I am really enjoying it so far. Another thing that I really like about is that I feel like the product goes a long ways. Even after using it consistently there is still so MUCH product left!
I am infamous for not drinking enough water, (I’m only human don’t @ me). My skin can tend to get dehydrated, sometimes drinking water is not enough, but when I started adding this essence into my everyday routine (am & pm) there was a noticeable difference. My skin feels so plump and hydrated.
With the weather only getting warmer during the summer, I love using this essence to not only keep my skin balanced in hydration but it also helps control my sebum throughout the day. The essence goes on smoothly without being too greasy or oily. Although it feels light, it packs a ton of hydration keeping my skin well hydrated.
I enjoyed it's hydration.
I really enjoyed this product, and I am a skincare junkie. I consider myself damn near an expert. This product has excellent qualities, hydration and moisture being at the top. I found it by accident, go figure. So glad the day I did. Love love love, this skin Essence.
I've tried a lot of essences, and a lot of the ones that feature saccharomyces are usually kind of underwhelming, but this one by feuillete has definitely been some of the best I've tried so far I'm really glad they gifted it to me. It's hydrating without needing too many layers, doesn't add any stickiness and has a wonderful softening effect for my dry skin. I think this would work for all skin types!
Smooth Water Essence is my favorite of the duo ~ this contains 86.7% saccharomyces ferment filtrate which are rich in minerals, vitamins & amino acids. Fermented ingredients can have a greater concentration of antioxidants & can be more efficient in reducing wrinkles & hyper-pigmentation. Fermented ingredients in skin care products are highly moisturizing & also have antibacterial properties. This also has skin brightening antioxidants niacinamide, licorice, fig, lotus & peony, along with soothing centella, oat & chamomile. Hydrating beta glucan, algae, polyquaterium-51, hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid & glycerin ensure this toner is deeply moisturizing This comes in a tall deep green plastic bottle with a pin hole applicator. The toner/essence has a bouncy, thicker-than-water texture & has no strong fragrance to it. It has a pH level of 5.5 ~ 6, meaning it is skin balancing. This really feels good on the skin as it has a cooling sensation. I use my hands to apply as this is not an exfoliating toner, but a hydrating one ~ however, use what method you like best. Smooth Water Essence doesn't leave any sticky or oily residue, dries down quickly so I can apply multiple layers. My skin does feel refreshed, hydrated & smooth. I really enjoyed this essence/toner!
