Well, not worth the price

I am sure it is great if used on a regular basis but i am not entirely sure of the high price is not mainly based on the packaging and brand rather than ingredients. You can find same ood ones at a fraction of the price. I dont thinkni would make a purchase, nice to try sample and i would stop here. There are other options available and lover price range

Nice but Expensive

I was given a sample of this as it is not a product or brand I have used before. However, it is very nice and sinks into the skin with ease. It has a watery consistency and as the sample packet was one where you ripped the corner a quantity fell out immediately, so I was only able to get a couple of uses from it. As I said its nice but do not think it is any better than others I've used especially for the price as expensive. I like that it does not have any parabens etc and happy to use again but not to purchase at full price.

Best Use: Hydrating, Barrier Repair, Reduce Dullness

Little effect

I didn’t like this. It was very watery and after applying to my skin, it felt no different at all. I didn’t see any effects, and felt like it was a waste of time. It wasn’t unpleasant, didn’t really have a fragrance and caused no skin reaction, it just didn’t seem to do anything.

I got this as a sample but it lasted for about 5 uses. It definitely delivers a really sudden and fresh hydration and plumping effect to the skin. My skin felt very supple and hydrated and it looked healthy too. I really loved my makeup on the days I used this product. However, I have not bought the full-size product as I think it is very overpriced and I have not tried other essences before, but I feel that there are probably ones that are very similar with reasonable prices. Still, if this product was cheaper I would definitely purchase it and add it to my skincare routine! It is like putting water that stays on your skin :)

Nice if it’s a guft

A very nice essence but as others have said not worth the money. I received a free sample and like it, but it definitely wasn’t special and I couldn’t see why the price is so high. So in summary’, I would happily get this again, but only if a free sample or gift was available.
