So, what the heck are essences?
They seem to have popped up out of nowhere, but apparently, the Koreans have been using them for decades. Essences are similar to serums, but they are more lightweight and hydrating. Hydration is the key word here. The main job of an essence is to add an extra layer of hydration. With Missha’s most popular customer favorite, The First Treatment Essence Intensive they use 90% fermented gemmule yeast extract. Yeast is a naturally fortified Vitamin B Group. Vitamin B supports and increases the rate of metabolism and maintains healthy skin.
It also contains niacinamide, which
- increases moisture levels in the skin, keeping it hydrated
- reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- soothes irritations and rosacea
- diminishes dark spots and brightens skin
- banishes sallowness
- treats acne
Glycerin, dimethicone, and purple barley add hydration. It’s a great next pre-moistuizer step to improve clarity and soothe the skin.
Another great product from Missha is their Super Aqua Smooth Skin Peeling Mousse. It’s a wash-off peeling mousse with fun bubbles that tingle when applied for 5-10 minutes. It contains a triple acid complex that controls sebum & removes dead skin cells all while being super gentle.
