If you aren’t sure what an essence is, think of it as a hydrating liquid that is lightweight, but also powerful. Essences can usually work to enhance your skin’s appearance, while helping to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. Basically, it is an anti-aging treatment that usually works.

Essence treatments are popular K-beauty products that are typically part of what is known as the 10 step Korean beauty regimen. This is usually applied after a toner has been applied, although that is not always the case.

When you apply this treatment, it actually feels like splashing water on your face, although this is so much better than just using water. And because of how lightweight this product is, you’ll find that it tends to absorb easier than other moisturizers, all without clogging up your pores.

Essence treatments help tighten the skin, while hydrating and giving it the glow we want. Except, this isn’t the usual glow we see in other products, this is a glow that is noticeably different and beautiful. And according to Soko Glam, it is all part of what is called honey skin, a trend that gives you a glow that goes beyond healthy skin radiance.

As someone who loves beauty products and trying new things, this product lived up to the hype. And while I don’t usually like adding extra steps to my own beauty routine, once I tried this product I realized that this is definitely going to be one new addition I can get behind.

It might feel like one extra step is unnecessary, but once you get your own honey skin glow, you may just change your mind. So brighten your skin, hydrate, and get a glow that makes you a fan of essences.
