What is a facial essence?
It’s a facial mist with a high percentage of active ingredients, formulated to target specific needs of your skin. It’s a great product for restoring hydration, balancing the skin or strengthening the skin barrier. Our essences have anti-ageing and anti-acne properties. They are similar to serums, but more lightweight.
How to include an essence in your daily skincare routine?
For most people, a face essence should be the first product on clean skin. You can then follow it with serums, creams or whatever your routine consists of.
Combining water-based serums with essences
In a way, essences are similar to water-based serums. They both contain active ingredients and hydrate your skin. However, our essences are formulated for specific skincare needs and with active ingredients not present in our serums. You can definitely combine our essences with serums!
The question is: do you need to? Depends on your skin goals. If your goal is just hydration, you definitely do not need to use both. But if you’re looking to improve a specific problem with your skin, a combination might work wonders for you. As always, it’s worth discovering what works best for your skin – so you can have the best skin possible!
If you combine an essence with one of our hydrating serums (Hey, Gorgeous! or Face It, You Love Me), apply the essence first, then the serum.
