Review: THE PLANT BASE Natural Solution Skin Essence
My life has been hectic these days, and I have been neglecting strict skincare routine which is why my skin has become quite dry. I have been receiving some products for review purpose and today’s post is about THE PLANT BASE Natural Solution Skin Essence which I received 2 weeks ago, and have been using it as part of my skincare routine. Another skin care product from Korea! Hooray!
THE PLANT BASE was established in 2005 as the most famous natural soap brand and it has been manufacturing 100% handmade natural soaps and entered skin care business because of continuous consumer demand. THE PLANT BASE has a very strict system which all the products by the company are hypoallergenic andare concentrated with bases that are composed of plant extracts and formulated with ECOCERT certified organic ingredients and natural essential oils. Now, with 8 different ranges and 45 skin care products, THE PLANT BASE is exporting over 10 countries and 100 global stores including Malaysia.

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.
