Lightweight & Absorbs Instantly
January 14, 2015
”This essence is very lightweight and absorbs into the skin instantly. Morning and night I will use two pumps and massage it into my face and neck. The essence makes your skin very moisturizing especially when your skin is really dry from the cold winter. I’m on my second bottle already, will definitely repurchase again!”

Love love love

I wanted to try the korean skin care routine, so I decided to buy this essence. I did not really have any expectations going in, but i was pleasantly surprised! It worked well for me, and the bottle really lasts you a long time. It may be quite pricey, but for the length of time you can use it, plus the quality, no doubt that it’s an awesome purchase!

boost your skin

This really boost my skin's dull condition. It is a gel formula but with the lasting moisture of a cream. Easily absorbed by the skin. Very lightweight and not sticky on face. This is really great specially on summer as this wont feel heavier than any other creams. My skin has become more supple.

Hydro boost!

I have been using the Neutrogena Hydro boost items in rotation with my Korean beauty products to help my dry skin. The essense gives me a dewy glow and enough moisture on my skin not to look dull most of the time. However, on colder days, I find it better and useful to layer this with other moisturizers.

Hit and Miss

There are days that I enjoy using this product and there are days when I regret buying it. Application-wise, it's a breeze to use. In cooler climates, it's easily absorbed but during summer, there are times that I feel it just melts away with sweat. There are occasions that I suspect it to be the culprit behind my pimples.

i love it

i use it along with my hydro boost moisturizer, my skin easily absorbs it upon application, it's very light and hydrating. it does not break me out nor cause irritation on my face. it is very gentle and it has a nice smell too. this is really good for oily skin like mine because it has a watery feel to it and it's not heavy on the face as well.

Great for oily skin

I have oily skin and this works like magic. Not too sticky and not too dry either. Though I sometimes find it necessary to reapply in the middle of the day because my skin absorbs everything so easily.
