What I Say

It comes in a yellowish-green packaging. It has a simple packaging with enough information both in Korean and English languages. So, I don’t have problem looking for information over the Internet. My first impression about this product is – nice! Apologize for being so ‘fussy’ on the packaging because I have been studying in the Marketing industry, so I developed the habit to check every single details including the packaging. Sorry.

Anyway, the essence is what I love the most because it comes in a very lightweight, a bit watery, clear, and refreshing consistency. It has liquid texture but thicker than water with a slight slimy look that is reminiscent of most hyaluronic acid products. The essence get absorbed into the skin in a matter of seconds and it does not leave my skin with greasiness or tautness. Just a fresh and dewy look. I cannot comment about the anti-aging part because I have only used it for about 10 days, I bet the result can only be seen after a few months of religious using it. The only thing that I notice that the redness on my skin has subsided, less sebum production, and more hydration.

Since it is more to a ‘natural solution’, I applied this on my 2 years old daughter’s cheek as she had rashes and some redness this morning. I actually dabbed a few drops of THE PLANT BASE Nature Solution Hydrating Bamboo Water on her cheek before applied with THE PLANT BASE Natural Solution Skin Essence. Her rashes subsides within a few minutes. In other words, it can be used as topical relief.

The price might be pricey a bit but this product is really good. It’s not wrong to invest on good and high quality product especially skin care products because your skin will reflect the products that you put onto the skin.

My Verdict

This is a very good essence! I’d recommend this to everyone even to those who have sensitive skin because this essence is so good to skin. It does not cause breakouts when I applied it onto my skin, too. Definitely go straight into my favourite skin care products for 2017!
