Fermented ingredients are at the heart of Korean skin care, and this water-like essence is a cult favorite among skin care lovers because it's well-known to repair damage and even skin tone in just a few weeks. This newly upgraded formula contains over 90% fermented yeast extract from Himalayan purple barley to effectively plump skin, refine texture, and reduce pigmentation -- even better than before! The double-fermentation process of the “RX” version more effectively provides rapid absorption of moisture, allowing skin to retain hydration longer and restores skin elasticity. Niacinamide brightens and clarifies, while adenosine energizes skin for more younger-looking skin. This much-loved essence will be your new holy grail!
Why we love it:
- ph level of 5.5
- Dupe for the SK-II Essence
- Very hydrating and brightening toner essence
How to use:
- After cleansing, apply a generous amount onto hands and pat onto face until fully absorbed.
- Follow up with serum and moisturizer

This is the most amazing product - it takes less than 1/2 a bottle of consistent use to notice a difference that any products added on top of this essence only improve the product layered on top - I will never be without a bottle of this essence. The hydration of my skin improved together with the overall appearance. Consistency is key for any good product like this in order to get results - nothing shows instant results but on going daily use will certainly reveal why it is an amazing product.
I have only been using this product for a couple weeks so I haven’t seen any dramatic change in my skin (I feel like products like this are more about long-term benefits), but I will say that i do feel more moisturized and it definitely calms my puffy face in the mornings.
I use it after I cleanse my face, before I add any serums or creams.
