Frequently Asked Questions
In what order does The Essence feature in my skincare routine?
The Essence is your second step after cleansing — when you once may have used a toner or hydrosol — it replaces these and offers so much more. An easy rule of thumb to follow is to apply your products with the smallest molecule size to largest, or from water based to cream to oil. We follow The Essence with The Moisturiser and then seal it all in with The Serum [which is 100% oil-based]. Applying your skin care products in the proper order ensures that your skin receives the full benefits of each product.
Do I still need to use a moisturiser or oil-based serum with The Essence
Following with a moisturiser or oil-based serum is an important step after using The Essence. Since the key purposes of The Essence are to deliver active ingredients deep within the skin, and to provide intense hydration, you will want to lock in those benefits.
What different functions does The Essence have?
As well as being super hydrating, this organic concentrate also works wonders at tackling specific skin concerns, such as reducing irritation, fading spots, evening skin tone, and reducing the appearance of fine lines [plus, a good option for pregnant women looking for a safe way to treat melasma]. It can also be used as an under-eye treatment and soothing after shave. We also like to store ours in the fridge in the warmer months and use it as a cooling after-sun so ease inflamed skin.
