Use once or twice daily.
Q: Is this product safe to use around the eyes? Does it cause milia seeds/oil clots?
A: Our Hydrating Soothing Essence is safe to apply around the eyes and can help moisturize the delicate skin there. It won’t cause milia seeds or oil clots.
Q: What’s the difference between your Hydrating Soothing Essence and Stem Cell Repair Essence? Can I use both at the same time?
A: Our Hydrating Soothing Essence moisturises and calms dry, sensitive skin. As its name suggests, its key benefit is that it hydrates and soothes skin. It can be used twice daily, morning and evening.
Meanwhile, our Stem Cell Repair Essence is a hydrating anti-ageing mist containing botanical stem cell extracts and powerful natural compounds to smoothen and repair skin, and protect it from the ravages of time and stress. Besides using it as a toner after cleansing, you can also spritz it on anytime during the day or when you are outdoors, to keep skin feeling healthy and refreshed.
Both essences are suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
If you wish, you can use these essences alternately: one in the morning and the other in the evening.
You can also use them both at the same time, one after the other. (It does not matter which goes on first.) After layering on both essences, you have the option to skip using serum and go straight to moisturizer, especially in the morning. However, if dry skin is a concern, do continue using a serum after you’ve applied the two essences, especially in the evenings.
