Very Enjoyable Gommage
I'm really enjoying Essence. I really like this brand so far. I have used a few other gommage-type products before and Essence seems to work the best for me out of all so far. I love that this is a mask, peel, and treatment all in one. I still do at least an abbreviated skin routine with a serum and moisturizer after this, but Essence really leaves my skin feeling great on its own. I do think that this product leaves my skin a bit clearer and it does not cause any irritation even though there is some manual exfoliation. The texture of Essence is quite thick but it is lovely to leave on for a few minutes and extremely satisfying to rub off gently. I do find the scent to be a bit strong but I don't mind it since it's not unpleasant and this is a rinse-off product. I also love the packaging. I find the tub design to be quite elegant. I liked this product enough to go ahead and try out Balm and The Facial as well.
