10.14 fl.oz./300mL $46.00

Since K-Beauty came to the US, I have fully favored the ultra luxurious ritual of adding extra steps to my skincare regimen in lieu of only cleansing, toning and moisturizing. One step in particular that I never knew I needed but cannot live without is an essence. Yes, an essence. I absolutely love one that gives me fully hydrated skin in an instant. It is amazing what a few drops of liquid can do for your skin. What makes them so special you ask? Let me tell you...

Essences are chock full of humectants, nature's hydrating ingredients that take  skin that feels like tight & dry and makes it feel soft, supple and plump again. Kind of like an oasis in the middle of a desert. There is one in particular I am loving right now, Hanskin Hyaluron Skin Essence. I received this in my February 2021 BoxyCharm base box and I cannot stop using it. This essence has 5-in-1 properties: moisturizing, skin glowing, skin boosting, skin balancing, and skin softening. It is free of parabens, benzyl alcohol, chlorphenesin, benzophenone 8, artificial dyes and artificial fragrances. 

Hyaluron Skin Essence contains glycerin, butylene glycol, pentylene glycol, two forms of hyaluronic acid, and collagen. Glycerin is a well known humectant that has a molecule small enough to reach the dermis. It is in many skincare products and helps to moisturize and soften the skin. In this essence it adds so much moisture and makes the product feel slippery. Butylene and pentylene glycol are humectants and emollients (derived from petroleum) that are known to be safe for the skin. Sodium hyaluronate is a form of hyaluronic acid that helps to bind moisture to the upper layers of the epidermis. Hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid is a low molecular weight hyaluronic acid and can penetrate the skin better. It acts as a sponge, allowing the skin to soak up 1,000 its own weight in moisture. Hydrolyzed collagen helps to reduce the appearance of dry skin skin by reducing flakiness and restoring suppleness to the skin. This essence also contains linseed extract, also known as flaxseed oil, which helps to soothe the skin. Zostera marina extract helps to keep the skin firm and luminous.


The directions for this product are very simple. After cleansing and toning, simply dispense an appropriate amount into the palm of your hand and apply to your face by patting until absorbed. Product will feel slippery. Your skin will feel amazingly soft and hydrated afterwards. Trust me. It says you can put this on a cotton pad but I wouldn't, as that is wasting the product. I am in love with this essence. Simply and utterly in love. This is something I never knew I needed but definitely cannot be without now. It is a part of of my skincare ritual and I use it as often as possible. Definitely twice a day. Hyaluron Skin Essence leaves my skin (which is very dry) soft, supple, and very hydrated. I am so happy that I received this in my BoxyCharm box. 

Hanskin Hyaluron Skin Essence retails for $46.00 for the 10.14/300mL size or $25.00 for the 5.07/150mL size. It is available from www.sokoglam.com or ULTA Beauty. Like Soko Glam on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SokoGlam/, Follow Soko Glam on Twitter: @sokoglam; Follow Soki Glam on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/sokoglam/; Follow Soko Glam on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sokoglam/ and Subscribe to Soko Glam on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCN-8_RNsFIYZrPPZXZJNkaA.
