The essence is a combination of lotion and serum, whose primary task is to further hydrate and protect the skin from harmful external influences. Unlike tonics, the essence contains significantly higher amounts of active ingredients that penetrate much deeper into the skin and complement daily care, supplying it with additional hyaluronic acid, polysaccharides, antioxidants and other active ingredients that some cosmetic companies add to their essences.
Today, almost everyone in their product line also offers essence. Where did she come from? It was taken from the now world-famous Korean 10-step daily care routine and slowly entered our Western habits from the East. The tradition and effects of Korean care passed down from generation to generation, allowing Korean women to look up to 10 years younger than their biological age, need not be spoken of any more. For 10 steps of care I am not ready at the moment, but for one extra that does not require extra time and is completely practical and simple, and I have a feeling that I am doing a lot for my skin, I decided with ease.
And it is good that I am, considering the benefits it brings to the skin, especially the one that needs anti-aging care and which lacks moisture and cries out for additional hydration. I love the feeling of elastic, soft, nourished skin, so I gladly and with great expectations included it in my daily care. And I did not regret it! I do not see any obstacle to adding hyaluronic acid to the skin of the face and neck, and in the summer when it was unbearably hot I sometimes used the essence itself and it was enough for me. In winter, my skin is dry and absorbs everything I put on it.
I definitely recommend that the essence be dabbed with your fingers on a cleansed face and gently pressed with your palms on the skin of the face and / or neck to absorb it as well as possible. It takes very little time because it absorbs well, so continue with your usual care. I introduced it a year ago and today it is a mandatory part of my care. After soaking it richly and waiting for it to be absorbed, I apply serum, day cream and eye cream.
As FIlorga was among the first, at least in our market, to launch its NCTF essence, I only tried it and remain faithful to it until further notice. It contains the well-known Filorgin’s patented NCTF complex (a powerful combination of vitamins, amino acids, minerals, coenzymes, antioxidants), hyaluronic acid and the Aqua MX complex for intensive skin hydration.
The polysaccharides in the composition protect the skin from external harmful influences. Filorga’s skin essence is milky and liquid in texture and soft pink in color due to the high concentration of NCTF complex, which is 10 times more concentrated in this entire Filorga NCTF line than in their other products. So it has an ultra strong anti age effect!
The manufacturer stated that it gently removes dead skin cells and removes impurities, but I did not notice this on my skin, but I was completely occupied with intense hydration and ease of absorption. It even soothed my skin. The smell is wonderful; clean, gentle, “pharmacy”, as with most Filorga products.
This product did a great job for me what I expected from it, extra hydration and “rounded off” my anti-age routine and I would recommend it to anyone in the age group 35+, although we know that skin condition often does not have to match the actual age. It is suitable for all skin types, and younger girls can use it as a day cream or serum.
And finally, the answer to the question, whether it is worth including the essence in the care, is valid even though the price is high, and that is the only drawback of this useful product.
