The product that is known to be the heart of Korean skincare, essences, also known as “treatment water”, delivers hydration to the deeper layers of the skin for the radiant, glassy skin glow. 

Often packed with tonnes of hydration and some active ingredients, they are designed to be able to layer multiple times

Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence

Formulated with 96.3% Snail Secretion Filtrate, this essence helps to repair the skin, while increasing the radiance and elasticity of the skin.

The high concentration of the snail secretion filtrate also helps to replenish moisture and increase the skin’s ability to retain moisture. It even promotes skin cell turnover, which over time helps to reveal healthier, more radiant skin.
The Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence is on the thicker side, but absorbs very quickly – giving your long lasting moisture without leaving a heavy feeling on the skin.
This serum is great for sensitive skin and is suitable for all skin types as well. Containing less that 15 ingredients, this essence means business!

Energy Seed Antioxidant Hydro Essence

Although it is named as a water-serum, this antioxidant rich essence helps to replenish hydration and to boost moisture retention. 

It has a large antioxidant complex of tocopherol, Rosemary Extract, Oats and Green Oat Extracts which help to promote skin cell turnover and revitalisation.
This super essence also contains Chia Seed Extract and Mango Seed Extract which hydrate (chia) the skin and moisturise (mango) to keep all the goodness inside. 
The Energy Seed Essence great for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin! Literally drizzle away your skin’s dehydration with this product!

Snail Bee High Content Essence

Yes! Another snail essence. Except this time, it has Bee Venom Extract as well! This luxurious essence by Benton contains Snail Secretion Filtrate, Bee Venom (yes, I literally mean the venom from the stinger), Niacinamide and Aloe Leaf Water.

It is watery in texture compared to the COSRX Snail Essence but is slightly more active. It helps to deliver nutrition to the skin, improve the skin’s barrier and vitality PLUS it also helps to increase moisture retention. 
The niacinamide also helps to brighten pigmentation and reduce redness so this essence is great for scarring. (Don’t forget that the snail does the same this as the COSRX essence! Promoting skin cell turnover = more radiant skin)
This essence is once again great for all skin types especially for those with oily/ combination and acne prone skin!

This multi-property essence delivers hydration and nourishment to the skin while helping to repair and brighten the skin’s complexion over time.
It also contains niacinamide, for the brightening, and panthenol, to soothe and heal sensitised skin. 
This essence is more suitable for drier skin types as it contains multiple powerful moisturising and hydrating agents. 
Radiant, energised and hydrated skin with Galactomyces!
