Mositure is everything, whatever time of year it is. Let’s actually back track real quick. In terms of skin care, what is an essence? Essences are concentrated treatments that are like water consistency. There are high doses of active ingredients in essences but don’t let that scare you! They are made not only to soften the skin but it will nourish the skin and prep it for serums you may add to your skin after applying an essence. If you want to give your skin the most moisture as possible, an essence is always recommended. They easily absorb into the skin and help promote clear skin.

Check out some essences we’ve been loving lately.

Ugh! I love skincare products that have matcha in them. This Green Tea Watery Essence from Tonymoly The Chok Chok is an 80-plus percent concentration of fermented green tea. This acts as the moisture for the product. It provides a beauty bouncy glow to the skin that is just incomparable to any other green tea-infused product.
