Facial essences are formulated with lightweight texture to penetrate deeply into our skin, delivering high levels of moisture not only to the epidermis to heal the surface of our skin, but also deep into the dermis to heal our complexion from within for our smoothest skin yet. Furthermore, facial essences act as a powerful primer for the rest of your skincare steps, ensuring that you get the most out of any subsequent products. Life Plankton Essence is formulated with the miracle microorganism that has a natural affinity for our skin’s membrane, which therefore opens up our skin to accept the products which follow. This rejuvenating and healing facial essence should be used as the step 0 to your skincare regimen at night in order to maximize the effects of your night mask, whilst also repairing and strengthening our skin to help it appear smoother and healthier day after day. In clinical trials conducted by scientists at Biotherm, they found that after 8 days, skin was transformed to appear as if newborn, with the complexion appearing 3 years younger after only 8 days of use (morning and night), and in the best performance, 13 years younger.
