What's an essence?

An essence is the first step in treating the skin. It specifically delivers concentrated ingredients with targeted benefits (like smoothing, hydrating, and refining) while prepping the skin for the products applied after (think serums, moisturisers, and night creams); this allows your products to work more effectively.

What is kombucha?

Kombucha is fermented black tea rich in natural acids and vitamins that has been around since ancient times. Historically it has been known throughout Asia and Russia as an "immortal elixir" beverage for its energizing and detoxifying properties. When it comes to skincare, kombucha keeps skin smooth, boosts luminosity, and protects from pollution.

How is kombucha specifically protecting my skin from air pollution?

Air pollution—both indoor and outdoor—contains particle matter like heavy metals, hydrocarbons, and other contaminants that are smaller than 2.5 microns in size (PM2.5). These microscopic particles can cause oxidative stress that leads to premature fine lines, dryness, and a dull, fragile complexion. The potent kombucha ingredient protects skin from indoor and outdoor pollutants in two ways: First, it deactivates damaging pollutants to minimise interaction with the skin and prevent oxidative stress. Second, the antioxidant-rich ingredient neutralizes free radicals caused by pollution and environmental aggressors.

I had been wanting to try it for ages, but I have combination skin which is also extremely sensitive so I hesitate to invest in new products without knowing how my skin might react. I received a sample in store and used some in the evening. I woke up with the most amazing glow, as if I had just had a facial. I ordered a bottle shortly after and it hasn't disappointed. My pores are visibly reduced and tighter, and people have commented on how healthy my skin looks. Would definitely recommend - I am obsessed!</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-12-18</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-12-18" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="" data-reviewid="224206868"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype=""> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Hen Hen</span> from <span itemprop="name">Bought as a gift, she loved it</span> <span itemprop="description">Bought this for a friend who loves skincare.... always hard when you're not too sure what exactly their skin needs / what they like, but this didn't disappoint!!

I used my sample for 3/4 days and noticed a huge difference in how my skin looks - so much so that I currently don't need to wear any make! The product is similar to a toner but has a bit more silky texture. It is best used by putting onto your finger tips because if you put it in a cotton pad it absorbs the product and given the price tag you want as much as possible of it on your skin!</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2020-05-18</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2020-05-18" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="" data-reviewid="219558460"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype=""> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Cindy</span> from <span itemprop="name">Smell amazinggg!</span> <span itemprop="description">Well, first of all I start to buy full size of all products I was given as samples and this is one of them. I've become a huge fan! This product smells divine, very natural and luxurious like a spa treatment. I was given a small sample that lasted for like 4 uses but that's enough for me to go for the biggest size. A real treat for skin, a great prep for the next skincare step, which absorbs quickly, revitalises, hydrates and softens. 100% worth the price.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2020-05-07</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2020-05-07" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="" data-reviewid="213942284"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype=""> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">4</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">cherylwsy</span> from <span itemprop="name">Hydrated and bouncy Skin, but so pricey.</span> <span itemprop="description">THIS ESSENCE IS LITERALLY THE BEST THING EVER. it stopped me from breaking out and it keeps my flaky skin away and hydrated. skin feels bouncy and firm even after one use. the fact that its so pricey is such a shame, but definitely did not disappoint.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2018-10-24</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2018-10-24" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="" data-reviewid="221075914"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype=""> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">emily</span> from <span itemprop="name">Love the product</span> <span itemprop="description">I became interested in this product because of the ingredient extracted from fermented black tea.
