WHAT IS AN ESSENCE?
Skincare show-offs will know that it slips into a routine between the toning and serum-slathering, but what exactly is a facial essence? And what does it really do? A facial essence (not to be confused with a toner) essentially works as a primer for your serum and moisturizer. It has a lower molecular weight than most daily serums and creams, and works to penetrate the skin much deeper. It hydrates and re-balances the skin while also using highly concentrated levels of active ingredients, enabling a deeper penetration into your skin barrier. An essence is mainly used to bolster the benefits of all the other products in your routine. The active ingredients will penetrate even deeper into the skin, further enhancing your other skincare products and making everything in your routine more effective. Its water-based formula makes it suitable for virtually every skin type.
HOW DO I USE A FACIAL ESSENCE?
Morning and evening, on cleansed face, use after toner and before serum. Squeeze 4-5 drops of the essence into the palms of your hands, then gently press onto face, neck and décolletage. We always recommend applying products from thinnest to thickest to guarantee the best possible absorption. After cleansing, the product order we use is: toner, essence, serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen in the AM.

DOES YOUR ESSENCE LEAVE MY SKIN OILY?
The delicate extracts found in our essence have been precisely balanced to ensure quick absorbency by the skin, preventing any residual oiliness.
CAN I USE THE ESSENCE IN PLACE OF A TONER?
Despite their similar appearances, the functions of essences and toners are very different. Toners work as a second cleansing step - they remove any residual dirt or makeup and also help balance the pH of your skin. Essence, on the other hand, is formulated to help deeply hydrate the skin and prep it for subsequent products. They help improve absorption of whatever products you use next, so you can really get the most out of your routine.
IS AN ESSENCE LIKE A SERUM?
Though serums and essences both work to deliver high concentrations of actives, essence is thinner, usually more hydration-focused, and less dense.
Essence is actually what you want to use right before serums to help them absorb more deeply into the skin.
