Nature Republic The First Essence Review


What is an essence?

An essence is a concentrated formula that specifically targets wrinkles, fine lines, and dull and uneven skin tones. Korean essences typically contain an active ingredient that optimizes your skin's natural cell turnover rate and with regular use you will notice that your skin is more smoother and brighter. 

This is a really important skincare product as it is responsible in increasing the rate of skin regeneration and it treats your skin in a cellular level.

It is very important that you choose the best essence for you. I have been loving fermented essences as it contains probiotics which just doesn't increase cell turnover, furthermore, itcan also help preventing acne.





Nature Republic The First Essence is very similar to SK II Essence as it is also a fermented essence which claims to brighten, moisturize, even out skin tone and maintain a clear complexion









This is the list of the main ingredients and what it does. It actually has the full list of ingredients on the packaging however, I have thrown away mine before. It is actually very wholesome and it has 90% fermented yeast which is absolutely GREAT! The ingredients are good coming from fermented yeast and some herbs which altogether helps the skin to recover and maintain health.







The Packaging:


Just like other essences, it is contained in a frosted glass. I'm not sure what the reason is but maybe it has to do in maintaining the product's effectiveness.








The Product:


It is very light and watery and not sticky at all.





Once applied, it is easily absorbed and it is actually very moisturizing. The brightening effect is also immediate, maybe because of the moisture that it gives to your skin. It is very refreshing and it doesn't sting your skin.







VERDICT:

Pros:
-brightening
-moisturizing
-very light on the skin
-mildly scented
-after a long use, skin is smoother and more even


Cons:
The packaging is a little bit heavy other than that I can't think of anything wrong with it.
Honestly, it will benefit everyone. I have oily skin but yet I still use it to manage oil-moisture balance for a healthier skin.

  11. 90% fermented yeast.What a surprising main ingredient that I have never really heard of before in beauty products. In your experience as a beauty blogger, is yeast a common ingredient in make-up?
