As an aesthetician, I am often asked: What is your skin care regimen? What are your favorite products? When are you starting a blog? (I am so glad I had the other PGG’s to collaborate with so I could bring a beauty section to life!) I constantly have my eyes and ears open on trends and products. Last year, I had been hearing and reading a lot about the Korean 10 Step routine that women have been doing for generations (more to come in another post). While it’s nothing new, it was new to me. After I cross referenced my routine with the 10 Step program, I realized the only component I was missing was “Essence.” Essence is not a brand name, rather a type of product that is intended to reduce fine lines and improve skin tone. It has often been proclaimed as “a miracle water that hydrates, restores, rejuvenates, and gives you a glowing complexion.” After researching price and comparing quality amongst brands, (Essence can be pricey – some well over $100 a bottle) I decided to try the highly rated and affordable Essence by “Missha,” and I am obsessed! It is meant to be used after cleansing and toning but before serum and moisturizer by applying with your hands (not with a cotton ball) and working the product into your skin. My friends, with religious use every day, I can confidently say it definitely does what it claims. The First Treatment Essence has been, by far, the biggest game changer in my skin care routine. With active ingredients that promote faster cell turnover rate and rejuvenation, it is my favorite wonder product!
You can purchase off their website at Misshaus.com or on Amazon as I did. Whether you already have a lengthy routine, use just a cleanser and moisturizer, or have no defined routine and are looking to start one, Essence is for you!
