Hi Beauties 💗
Today I’d like to introduce you to one of the BEST essences I have tried ever - the Neogen Real Ferment Micro Essence. I have heard a lot of good things about this product from my coworkers and friends. This time I finally got my hands on one, and guess what! I absolutely love this essence and it has definitely become a staple step in my skincare routine!
How to use: Use this essence daily in the morning and evening after cleansing and toning. Sprinkle the essence into the palms of hands or use a cotton pad to gently sweep across the face and neck, lightly patting your skin until the essence is fully absorbed.
The name of this essence suggests that ferment extracts play a major role. Fermentation is a natural process which produces amino acids, vitamins, and various antioxidants, which are great for the skin. And these fermentation products have smaller molecular structures, which makes it easier to absorb into the skin. This essence has 93% naturally fermented ingredients, including Bifida ferment lysate and Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate, both help to Increase elasticity, skin tone and intensely hydrate skin.
It also contains 9% rice extracts to illuminate skin from within. Instead of using water as the solvent, this product is formulated with 17% birch sap to bring extensive hydration into the skin. The mild acidity pH~5 of this essence helps to balance the pH level of skin.
Overall, with no harsh ingredients or fragrance, this product is perfect for everyone who wants more hydrated, plumped and glowy skin✨
In terms of texture, it is very runny and watery. I absolutely love how lightweight the essence is and in fact, I have been using it to replace my toner for both day and night. It is very easily absorbed into the skin and does not leave any sticky or pore clogging feelings at all. This allows me to layer the product a couple of times. Personally, I like to use a cotton pad to apply the product on first, and then take a bit more and pad into my skin to maximise the effect of the essence.
In terms of packing, it comes in a clear glass bottle, feeling heavy and luxurious. It is a quite big bottle, containing 150ml of product which can last you for a long time.
In term of effectiveness, I absolutely love this product for the following reason: It feels so lightweight on the skin, just like you are putting on a toner, despite being way more effective than your normal toners. It delivers hydration to the deeper layers of my skin and keeps it supple and hydrated for a longer time. I have noticed my skin producing less oil throughout the day because it is hydrated all day long.
As I mentioned before, I personally find layering this essence really maximises its effect. Unlike some other essences or serums, the Neogen essence is non-pore-clogging no matter how much product you put on. It just sinks right into the skin without residue. It also works well with other skincare products I put on after and sits well under makeup. I see noticeable results in my skin becoming more glowy and healthier looking, achieving the ‘honey skin’ goal. But I haven't really noticed the brightening effect as much.
Overall, this product is one of the best essences for deep hydration, plumbed and glowy skin I have ever tried! It has definitely become a stable step in my skincare routine and I would highly recommend beauties with all types of skin to give it a go as well!
Thank you for reading till the end.
