Essence is the heart of the Korean skincare routine, and it is a skincare category that was created in Korea. You'll see more results from essence than any other product because it treats skin on a cellular level. Essence is a concentrated formula that specifically targets wrinkles, fine lines, and dull and uneven skin tones. Korean essences typically contain an active ingredient that optimizes your skin's natural cell turnover rate (think skin regeneration) and with regular use you will notice that your skin is more smoother and brighter. It can't turn back time, but it will definitely revitalize your skin so that with continued use - you can look more youthful.
