F.A.Q.

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 energising 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 neutralises free radicals caused by pollution and environmental aggressors.

I use it after my last cleansing step as a prep before my serums and creams. It feels super luxurious and hydrating despite being incredibly light. I have combination skin and it doesn't make my oil prone areas feel oily. My dry areas definitely need a heavier moisturizer after using this product though. I know using an essence is not essential but after using this one I will never go back! A little goes a long way so the bottle lasts forever -I just finished my 150mL bottle a year after purchasing and bought my second bottle. If you're on the fence try the travel size, it won't disappoint!</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-10-29</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-10-29" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="213922619"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Black Tea Kombucha Antioxidant Essence" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">1</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Anonymous</span> from <span itemprop="name">Good product but bottle breaks easily</span> <span itemprop="description">Bottle breaks easy.
