If you’re not familiar with essences they are basically primers for your skincare, helping to increase the efficacy of other skincare products. To be used, post-cleanse and pre-serum/moisturiser etc. I will often use an essence within my routine to not only help the other products I use to work harder but also to add an extra layer of hydration and the newest addition to my collection is this Filorga NCTF-Essence*.
I have been using this essence both morning and evening as an extra step within my routine, it’s a beautifully light lotion that I apply to the palms of my hands and then gently pat into my skin; or you can apply to a cotton pad that you can then sweep over the face. It’s a silky smooth texture that has a slightly floral scent, nothing too overbearing but just adds a nice subtlety to the product. It’s absorbs pretty much instantly on contact with the skin and just gives a beautifully hydrated base to then apply further skincare products on top of.
The lotion uses water sensors and AQUA-MX Technology, both of which work in synergy with each other to help deliver instant and long-lasting hydration. Also being enriched with NCTF®, a medicine-derived polyrevitalising complex, this helps to regenerate the skin to give a youthful and radiant appearance to the complexion.
Priced at £50.00 for 150ml it is definitely more of a premium priced product and in all honesty a luxury product that isn’t a necessity within your skincare product. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a beautiful product and I have really loved having this within my routine but in my opinion it’s an optional luxury. If it falls within your budget and you like to invest in your skincare then by all means you will love this!
