The first essence is different from a typical essence in that it goes, well, first. The first essence goes on directly after toner and before any other essences. It contains a large amount of fermented ingredients.
Fermented ingredients = Glowing skin
This is an optional step.
SK-II Facial Treatment Essence- This is the queen of first essences. It also has the price tag to match. If you have the means, this essence comes highly recommended and you likely won’t look back after using it. However, there are cheaper, effective alternatives.
Missha Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence- Some who have tried the SK-II essence claim that this is a great dupe.
Cosrx Galactomyces Whitening Power Essence- Cheap and gets the job done. Also provides a punch of hydration. (I’m also very biased to Cosrx 🙊 )
