What it is: A bi-phase essence formula that provides mattifying benefits while over time addressing the cause of clogged pores for a refined complexion.
What it does: Essence is a powerful, multi-benefit skin care step that is applied after cleansing and balancing the skin and applying targeted serums. This facial essence feels like a water but is actually a concentrated, gently astringent serum that works to refine, retexturize and hydrate skin while absorbing excess oil. Unlike many other serums, essence is applied with a gentle patting motion which allows the dynamic product to be pushed into the skin and diminish visible pores, even after other serums have been applied. The legendary Clé de Peau Beauté purple water is enhanced with new Surface Refining Complex EX for more powerful skin-polishing results. This complex addresses the persistent impurities and inflammation-inducing sebum that affect skin's texture. By dissolving and removing persistent impurities within the pores, it ends the chain reaction of inflammation and the clogged pores that result.
How to use: The essence should be applied after cleansing and balancing the skin and applying targeted serums, and before applying moisturizer. Shake well to mix the bi-phase formula, which is infused with powder. Saturate a cotton pad and apply to the entire face using a patting motion. Finish application by gently smoothing the cotton over any noticeably rough areas.
