A favourite essence! It made my skin feel softer, smoother and it helped with my overall skin texture. I felt that when I used this, my skin looked more vibrant and brighter. It doesnt cause any acne for me, nor does it contribute to my oil production. I have oily skin, so I layer a lot of products and Benton Fermentation Essence fits in my skin care routine easily, as it is fast absorbing, not requiring a lot of time between steps.
