I started using a treatment essence around five years ago with SKII. Of course, SKII's version is very, very pricey. I'm so glad I recently got a chance to try Kiehl's new Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence ($45 at Kiehl's). This pretty purple bottle holds great anti-aging skincare that helps hydrate your skin and deeply nourish it. My entire routine has changed these last few weeks and adding this into the mix has helped maintain my skin's smoothness. It also has a beautiful soft, subtle smell.
Cleanse your skin first, then use the essence after your face is clean. Put a few drops in the palm of your hands and press it gently into the skin so that it can get absorbed. The essence has velvety-feeling and once you pat it in, it just makes your skin feel amazingly hydrated. Follow it with the rest of your moisturizing routine with serum(s), moisturizer and sunscreen if it's in the day.
