It's Time to Replace Traditional Toner... Let These 10 Essence Lotions Rivalling Concentrates Save Your Skin

Start 05/25/2017

Essence lotions appeared most early in Japan skincare. Distinguished from traditional toners, an essence lotion is close to serum, but different in texture (more lightweight). This kind of treatment toner is formulated with a few key active ingredients to bring not only all toner properties, but the efficacy of a concentrate. Watered-down essences bring skin’s surface pH back to normal, deliver hydration that makes the skin more amenable to what’s about to go on next, and provide specific issues like lightening, dark spots correcting, antioxidant, anti-aging, etc. We would recommend replacing the traditional toner you're using now with these 10 highly-reviewed essence lotions in the skincare circle!
