I didn’t know, when I bought this, that it’s my friend’s HG essence. She and her boyfriend love it and have yet to find it’s equal. I love that it was nice thin and watery consistency as it seems to ********* into my skin better than something thicker that will leave my skin tacky feeling. I feel like I have already seen the brightening effects from this in the few weeks I have been using it, however I have also been using the Heimish All Clean Green Foam 5.5 ph cleanser which has centella in it (which could also be neutralizing my skin tone as well. I don’t love the cost of the full size bottle, but my friend said that hers has lasted for at least 10 months, so I think it’s ok in the long run. My small bottle will probably last another 2-3 weeks, maybe more as I alternate it with the Cosrx Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence. This essence is definitely going on my likely will repurchase list.
Wow this is just better than SK2 for real
Like that there's a trial size for this essence. This one by Neogen is brightening, incredibly lightweight and does make other products absorb more quickly. I have oily dehydrated acne prone skin - this didn't cause any irritation or breakouts, however this wasn't hydrating enough to replace my hydrating toner. I did like how it made other serums absorb faster. Compared to Missha FTE pro ferment version, Neogen has a more brightening, glowy finish, while the Missha has a silkier slip and makes skin look more pearlescent and immediately softening. I think oilier skin types will prefer Neogen.
The NEOGEN Real Ferment Micro Essence contains 93% naturally fermented ingredients to instantly boost your skin hydration while providing skin firming benefits. The added birch juice and rice extract to maintain hydration while revitalizing the skin. This essence offers the skin a dewy, glowing complexion!
