Originating from the Korean beauty industry, a facial essence – not to be confused with a toner – essentially works as a primer for your moisturiser whilst also including a lot of extra benefits for the skin.

Essences have similar benefits to a serum, and with a lower molecular weight than most daily creams, they work to penetrate the skin much deeper than your average moisturiser. Essences combine the various elements of a skincare routine in one step: they hydrate and re-balance the skin whilst also using highly concentrated levels of active ingredients, enabling a deeper penetration into our skin barrier. This extra hydration allows your skin to absorb all the goodness of your next product even more so than usual.

So plainly speaking, an essence is predominantly used to bolster the benefits of all the other products in your routine. The active ingredients will penetrate even deeper into the skin, working to further enhance your other skincare products, making the whole thing a lot more effective.
