Am I using the same product as everyone else?

I have been using Estee Lauder all of my life and will not use any other brand. I use everything that's possible and love everything. So when I received a free sample of this product, I automatically ordered it so I didn't run out. When I used the free sample, I wasn't impressed but I figured as all products, the longer you use them, the better the results. I have been using the product now for a month and my face has been feeling bad, rough and red toned. I don't know why I'm having such bad luck with this. I paid almost $100 for this and didn't save the box or receipt assuming I would love it. My skin is generally oily but lately has a tendency to run dry in the winter as I get older. I'm using it twice a day as a toner. Am I doing something wrong? Could it be just drying my face out?

Cannot Do Without

I've been using Essence in my daily skin care routine as the first step for a few months now, & I can tell you it's done wonders to my skin! I have combination skin that gets oily pretty easily so I would get break outs & other blemishes a lot, but since using this it has noticeably cleared & smoothed my skin texture. I just dab a couple shakes into my washed hands and pat it on my face, wait until it dries, then apply my other Estée Lauder creams (Eye cream, wrinkle cream, acne treatment if needed). It's a delicate product that works! It's non-sticky & doesn't smell, irritate, or anything. Seriously so happy I found this collection that works!

A BELIEVER! Every time I doubt...

I have aging, oily, acne and rosacea prone skin and just switched skin care and makeup from Trish McEvoy to Estee Lauder. Now, I am in love with my skincare routine and new makeup but was intrigued by this product. I am a minimalist and only want to add what is needed, useful, effective, and worth the money. I was intrigued but skeptical. I used a sample for a few days and had to buy a full size (on sale;) Every time I feel like this thin, unassuming liquid cannot possibly make a noticeable difference, I take a break and then, Viola, the Magic appears. My skin feels silky smooth, redness seems calmer, I notice a healthier appearance. I love the silky feel skin after each use. My makeup, especially foundation, loves this. Primer are so unnatural. I use this after cleanser and before serum (Idealist) and lotion (Hydra lotion or Supreme+). Uggg to everyone who loves this, and keeps snapping up all of the full-sized Micro Essence Gift With Purchase EL offers up! Less

My Holy Grail!

If there is one product that I want to have on a deserted island other than sunscreen, it is the micro essence. I have tried several Korean essences (high end, low end and in between) in my quest to improve my uneven skintone and redness and until I tried this, I considered Korea to be the expert on formulating a good essence. This beats everything I have tried from Korea hands down. If you have oil skin, you may need nothing other than the essence as a moisturizer -- it is really that hydrating. I have combo/dry skin, but since using this, my skin has normalized. My skin no longer feels dry or dehydrated. My Rosacea has improved since starting this to the point where I can get away with using a tinted moisturizer. It has improved my sunspots from my youth's sun indiscretion. Something nothing else has done...even prescription medications. My skin now resemble the skin of my 20's and 30's and I am almost 50. I really can't say enough about this product. Every time someone complements my skin, I mention this product as a significant reason. I rarely write review unless something really impresses me so that tells you how much I love the Micro Essence. You need this Micro Essence in your life no matter your age! Absolute Holy Grail status!!!

AMAZING!!! All-time favorite product EVER!!!

Buy it! You won't regret!! I have nightmare skin (ultra-sensitive, dry, rosacea, breakout prone, combo skin) and I will never go without this again!!! It is super gentle, hydrating, brightening and nourishing. It wakes my skin up and prepares it to better absorb my serum and moisturizer. I use it morning and night and honestly wish I could drink it too :) lol. TIP: To get the most out of the product (since it is expensive!) make sure you are keeping up with your exfoliation routine so that this product can really soak in and not be blocked/wasted on dead skin cells. Enjoy ladies!!!
