We like to think of essences as the key to unlocking potential. You might have some lovely serums or moisturisers at home that you’ve been using and not seeing the results you’ve been expecting.
Essences can help with this by improving how your skin absorbs and handles other products. To help make finding your essence easier, here is what the Skinsider family thinks you need to know about these amazing products.
What do essences do?
Essences are your go-to when you want to improve absorption for creams & moisturisers, while also making sure that skin is well hydrated.
If you have a specific aim in your skincare routine, be that reducing irritation or getting rid of dry patches, a good essence is only going to help speed up the process.
What brands are known for K-Beauty essences?
We only ever stock brands we believe in, which is why there are only a select few, which we think are just fantastic with essences. Ones to look out for include:
When should I use essences?
Always think of essences as the buffer, or mid-point, between cleansing skin and hydrating. A good essence will help get deeper in the skin after you’ve exfoliated and used toner, and you would be best to use it when you want to add more hydration to your routine.
Which essences are the most popular?
Ask anyone who has a dedicated K-Beauty routine about essences, and they’ll tell you just how important it is helping toned skin feel firmer. Some of the most popular essences we highly recommend include:
Which essences are best for dull and dry skin?
With essences dealing with hydration, if you’re someone who has dull or dry skin, a good essence should become a pivotal part of your skincare routine.
Benton Fermentation Essence is one of the best-selling essences for dull skin, while By Wishtrend Quad Active Boosting Essence has anti-inflammatory properties which help tired skin feel and look calmer.
Are these essences vegan-friendly?
A good number of essences we have available are vegan-friendly, with some of the most notable options including:

Are there any mists I can use as part of my everyday routine?
In our opinion, mists are the unsung heroes of essences. If you find the right one, it can quickly become a daily skincare staple.
Real Barrier Essence Mist is an incredibly popular option amongst the Skinsider family. Not only is it fast absorbing on the face, but it also comes in handy when you need a reliable setting spray for makeup (just one quick spritz does the job). Oh, and with it being 100ml, it is just the right size to take on your travels too.
