Would've been a great moisturizer

I have received this in full size. I was very excited to try it because I know this brand only uses good ingredients. I've used this for a couple of days. Let's get to the pros first. I like that it's just like water. It feels light but it hydrates the skin really well. It sinks in quickly. There's a slight stickiness that goes away within a few minutes. For cons, it feels hot and it triggered my rashes. I wanted to love it but I got irritation. This would be ideal if you don't have sensitive skin.

Hydrating, but did not offer much more

This is the first essence I've tried and now I can say that an essence is already gonna be a staple in my routine. I love how it preps your skin for the next skincare steps. I used to not understand what "prepping your skin for the next steps" meant when I read it in blogs but now I do. It gives your face that supple feeling like it can better absorb the creams after it. Instead of having fresh out-of-the-shower skin which in my case is often parched. That being said, I'll always want to have an essence but not particularly this one because there's not much noticeable improvement with my skin. I used this twice a day everyday for six months until I finished the entire bottle. It provided hydration but it didn't help much with my blemishes. It also didn't improve the fine lines around my eyes and mouth. I think there might be better products for the same price.

Best Fermented Skin Solution. Highly Recommended for Sensitive Skin.

I use this after double cleansing my face, specifically, to prep my skin for the serums, oils and moisturizers I'll be laying on top of it. I'm glad to report that this product didn't break me out nor did I experience any harsh reactions from my skin despite its sensitivity. No wonder, the formulation is excellent, full of skin-friendly and effective ingredients versus other Korean fermented toners. I really appreciate that it comes in sturdy packaging that's been tinted to protect the formula against UV exposure. Overall, this is an impressive product and would be glad to repurchase it in the future. If you're looking for a more affordable alternative to SK-II, look no more!

Good first step toner for layering

Even though it's an essence, I use it as a hydrating toner since it's quite watery. It absorbs/dries fast and is good for layering additional skincare products over. So far I have not noticed any visible difference on the appearance my skin due to this, except that when I don't use it, my face feels a bit drier and tighter.

Neutral ground

I like that the serum is watery and not thick. Having oily skin, I've found that heavy ones tend to make my skinbreak out. It is odorless which also earns it plus points. The packaging is great as well; very sanitary pump, tight cap, and I've never spilled it. There's a lot of it in a bottle so it's actually a really good value for around a thousand pesos. As to its effectiveness, I'm not really sure... I've been using it for nearly half a year now but haven't really gotten noticeable improvements in terms of elasticity or lift. But maybe I'm expecting too much. :)

Perfect for oily skin

Enjoyed using this. I have oily skin and cream moisturizers are, most of the time, too heavy for me. I apply 2 to 3 layers of this and it gives my skin just the right amount of moisture before applying sunblock and foundation. I love that the ph level information is available online, too (pH 5 to 6).
