Great Basic Essence to Have in Your Routine

I enjoy this essence along with the snail essence as my second essence in my routine because of the texture and brightening results. The main reason this is a staple in my routine is because of the Niacinamide, which is in a lot of K-beauty products and is gentle enough to use twice a day. I sometimes mix it with heavier moisturizes as well to make the consistent lighter. I don't feel as if it hydrates the skin, just brightens. I would recommend to those with oily, combo and sensitive skin since the texture is light, does not irritate the skin. I have repurchased this product and it last sooooo long, as well as the COSRX Snail Essence.

Hydrating and soothing

I had a pretty good skin car routine with PCA which I was happy with all of their products but I have acne and the products can really dry you out. So I did some research and added this to my routine and I have noticed a difference already within three days. My skin feels and looks brighter and moist. I definitely recommend if your looking for something extra to add to your routine.

Lots of breakouts

This essence just didn't work for me, it gave me a lot of little breakouts around my face (whiteheads) and a lot of little red bumps (probably 50). I've been using this product for 3 weeks now and at first I thought my skin was just purging but I've been getting these bumps in places where I don't ever get acne (around my laugh line, jaw. Around my eyes). So unfortunately I will be returning this, even though I really wanted it to work, which is why I kept going after weeks of seeing bumps on my skin. The snail mucin essence worked much better for me, but I was hoping this one would give me results too. For context I have acne prone combination skin with PIE and I'm a person of color.

This one's a keeper

Galactomyces products are aplenty on the market these days from the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence to its competitor, the Missha First Treatment Essence. This is a fairly new product on the market and I was drawn to this just like other products from this line due to the lack of preservatives. The ingredients are very simple and contain only the very essential ones including the galactomyces yeast ferment and niacinamide. There are no parabens, phenoxyethanol, fragrance or alcohol.The essence is definitely thicker than SK-II or Missha and goes on a bit sticky but the way to handle this is by patting the product in gently until the stickiness is gone. Once you do that, the product will be entirely matte.I honestly saw results from this product faster than SK-II or Missha. Within about 3 days, my face felt smoother, brighter and the red marks appeared calmer. It also didn't cause breakouts for my sensitive oily skin. The only other product I added during this period was the CosRx Hyaluronic acid cream but that one's main purpose is hydration so I think the brightening effect likely came from this product. Charlotte definitely knew what she was doing when she curated the CosRx line. « less

Good Affordable Essence

I've used this for months without any problems with it triggering acne. It helps hydrate and brighten my skin. I always get compliments (weekly, if not daily) on my skin so this must be doing something right.
