A post-facial glow is something we wish would last forever. Now we’ve found a way to get moisturized, glowy skin by adding one step to our skin care routine. It’s called an essence. It reminds us of a serum, except less concentrated, and it will become your skin’s best friend.

A facial essence’s texture feels much more like water than a serum. It should be applied before any products in your regimen, after face washing. It gives skin a boost of moisture without weighing it down and makes the rest of your skin care routine much more effective. These formulas work by gently exfoliating dead skin cells, helping with skin cell turnover and making it easy for products applied afterward to penetrate.

Each essence targets a specific concern, from anti-aging to dark spots, and a little bit of this miracle product goes a long way. Daily use of the concentrate will lead to enviable, dewy, lit-from-within skin. Check out our favorites below.
