What is Essence ?

What is Essence? Is it a toner, serum, or face wash?
Today, I am going to dive deep into the most asked question in the beauty industry. In February, 2004, a Japanese skincare called SK-II launched in the USA with a handful of locations in Saks Fifth Avenue. In the same year, Vogue published an editorial page on SK-II. This article got so much buzz that SK-II sold out of the Facial Treatment Essence in the US.
I believe the first Essence has officially taken over the entire beauty industry by storm. With reasons to launch K Beauty at Sephora, more brands started to create their own versions of the essence.

 

So what is Essence?

A skin balanced liquid packed with lots vitamins and some key essentials to recharge your skin and help maintain skin’s natural rhythm.
In addition, Essence can help other skin care products to absorb much better and  deeper into the skin. If the skincare product you apply only sits on the surface of the skin, it will not work to its potential.

So, I call it magical liquid.

If you’ve read this far, you’re probably wondering, which brands have the best Essence?

I honestly believe SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is truly the best of the best in Essence category.

Facial Treatment Essence SK-II’s signature product and highly awarded best-seller. Essentially unchanged for more than 35 years, this essence transforms all five dimensions of your skin to crystal clear – spots are less visible, appearance of wrinkles is reduced, skin texture is more refined, firmness is improved, and radiance is beautifully elevated.

Besides, each bottle of Facial Treatment Essence contain over 90% of pitera . I mean every bottle of Facial Treatment Essence is 90% Pitera which is SK-II’s key ingredient.

What I love the most is the texture of the this Essence. It looks and feels like water. Even after applying it onto the skin, there is no weight or stickiness after fact! Most essences have some kind of texture and leaves a residue which I don’t really care for.

Who can use essence? Basically, everyone no matter their age, skin condition or concerns!I hope this helps.

Do Asian women naturally have better skin?

Do Asian women naturally have better skin?

So many people will say that Asian women have the best skin amongst all western world women. Its this really true?
My option is that it is not true. What causes Asian women to have better skin is the following facts:

1. Environment
2. Skin Care Ritual

Here are my thoughts on these two critical reasons.


Environment  

Generally speaking, Asian countries have a more humidity climate than the USA. Humidity will give the skin natural hydration, resulting in skin that looks and feels more plump. In contrast, a dry environment  will dry our skin’s natural moisturizers and dehydrate the skin. Have you ever visited Hawaii or tropical country? The moment you step out the airplane your skin looks and feels far more hydrated.

Skin Care Ritual 

It’s very common to double cleans the face. Using makeup remover first before use cleanser to wash the face. After the wash from toner, essence , serum , face and eye cream, mask and SPF is must . Taking time to take care for the skin is huge deal for Asian women and men who live in Asia. Weekly masking is also very common.

Finally, taking time to care for your skin, increases everyone opportunity to have amazing skin. Even if you live in desert
