The essence can also be used to moisturise dry areas where makeup cakes: soak cotton pad and leave on rough or irritated areas, proceed with eye makeup/leave on for a few minutes, remove cotton pads and continue with makeup.
Why we like it
This essence is 95% galactomyces ferment filtrate: this fermented ingredient is great for skin, it hydrates, brightens, repairs and smooths.
This essence has been referred to as a dupe for Missha’s first treatment essence and SKII’s pitera essence, because they all contain a high percentage of yeast ferment. It also comes in a generous 100ml bottle and is much cheaper than the other 2 cult favourites so you can afford to use generously!
Free from: parabens, ethanol, synthetic surfactant, artificial coloring, synthetic perfume, triethanolamine and phthalate.
