A very good essence at a reasonable price.

First of, it's freaking gorgeous. The price makes it even more attractive, being one of the cheapest first treatment essences I have come across. It is essentially a dupe for the Missha FTE. It has a relatively short list of ingredients, which I appreciate. Nothing more than what is needed. It has a high percentage of galactomyces ferment as well as niacinamide. Both contribute to skin brightening. The product claims to brighten and hydrate the skin. I found these claims to be true. Indeed, after using it immediately after my cleansing routine, I wave brightness and hydration hello. It does not leave a satisfying glow that the MISSHA FTE gave me but once I stopped using it I could tell the difference. I didn't have any issues with how my skin reacted to it. It has a faint rose scent which disappears upon application.

All in all, if you are looking for an affordable first treatment essence to even out your complexion and hydrate your skin then look no further.
I honestly have nothing negative to say about this product, I would rate 5 stars, but then again it didn't wow me to oblivion 4.5/5.
