Korean serums and essences are lightweight liquid hydrators packed full of skin-loving ingredients. These true glow-makers are designed for use after cleansing and toning, and before applying your moisturizer. Don’t forget to pat, pat, pat!
Daily concentrates to target your skin's unique needs.
Layering is everything in the world of K-Beauty, which is why you’ll find an array of products in many different textures. Essences traditionally were more lightweight and less concentrated than serums, and were used after a toner to add another layer of hydration before you applied serums. Korean essence is a hybrid between a toner and a serum. Facial essences allow all of your other products to absorb deep into your skin for maximum results. The texture is much more watery than you would find in a regular serum or ampoule. Essences are lightweight but work hard to prep the skin for the rest of your routine. Typically, serums are more concentrated and a few drops is all you need. The trick is to find active ingredients that address your specific skin concerns. These facial serums and essences nurture your skin and prepare it to absorb moisturizer. You can think of toners and essences as prep before the main treatment: serum. Discover green tea serum for a moisturizing and nourishing serum containing organic Jeju fresh green tea. No need to stress about whether a product is an essence, serum or ampoule – all of these active-packed treatments will do wonders for your skin when layered properly within your skincare regimen – after cleansing & toning and before a moisturizer.
