  • Must-Have

    I love this and wouldn’t dream of going without it. It is perfect for preparing my skin for moisturizer. I even like it alone sometimes too. It does not break me out or irritate my very sensitive skin.

  • Soothing and Refreshing

    Essence is a luxury purchase and I use it am and pm. It preps my skin for the serum, eye cream, and moisturizer. Every detail is considered: the website is well done, ordering is easy, and the packaging is top of the line.

  • Post 3 months

    After using this product regularly for 3 months now, I have noticed that my skin has started to develop serious break-out issues. I have never suffered from acne before but now I consistently have at least 3 painful, acne break-outs. Consulting with some skincare specialists, I have been told that oil-based cleansers are not for everyone and have moved away from oil-based cleansers.

  • Love this!

    So glad I decided to try this. I will always use it before the rest of my skin care. I have noticed a difference adding this to my routine. I'm glad I got it on the replenishment program, just in case and I love it.

  • it's ok

    I like the design of the bottle, and the 98% concentrate. It smells like light rice wine with some bamboo scent. On the first few days, my skin feels moisturized and plumping, and after few weeks, my skin get used to it, so not so moisturized afterward. But overall, it's not bad to use with other products.
