Review: Neesya Illuminating Essence

Thursday, September 19, 2013

Hi Everyone!

I have been loving the Neesya Illuminating Essence. It has become a staple in my everyday skincare routine :D You can know more about Neesya from my previous post here.

I got this from the event as part of the Overnight Radiance Kit. I don't enjoy the other two products which is the Brightening Enzymatic Refiner and the Brightening Overnight Mask. I don't think there's anything wrong with the products and they do the job well. But I can live without them but I can't live without the Illuminating Essence :D

The Illuminating Essence is one of Neesya's signature product and it is in the LumiScience°TM range. The functions are high performance whitening, hydration, radiance and renewal. It is target for tired and stress skin to help boosts the skin's radiance. It is paraben and colorant free. 

The texture is just slightly thicker than liquid but still very runny. It is easily absorbed into the skin and a little goes a long way. What I love first about this is the smell. I don't know how to describe it but to me it smells luxurious haha.

The packaging is sort of a mix of cute (because of the size), luxury (from a far the bottle looks like glass) and simple. It's not glass though it's matte plastic which feels smooth and light. It's just a twist cap and the opening is not too big and not too small so you won't get excessive product, unless you squeeze it but I don't recommend it. I think it is nice that they focus more on the product itself than to use expensive packaging thats not necessary.

How do you use it? It states to spread all over the face but I find that it absorbs better if I pat it instead, like the Hada Labo lotion. In the beginning  I used it day and night, now it's a part of my night skin care routine :)

After using it for a few weeks, I do start to notice that my skin a glowing and looks healthy. It doesn't whitens but it does brighten up my face. It really helps especially on days I don't get enough sleep hehe. And my skin feels great after each application and I noticed the tone is a little even. It's not drying at all and it's a lil moisturising. A little note to remember, this is a water based essence and it can easily evaporate, so to prevent that you need to use moisturiser after, and as soon as it absorbs into the skin.

As for the price, RM 79 for 65 ml is quite affordable and this will last you a very long time. Overall, I am very happy with this product and will continue on to use until the very last drop :D

For more information, you can visit Neesya's website or thier fb page :)
