What is an Essence and Why Do You Need One In Your Skincare Routine?

So maybe you’ve just gotten to the point where you’ve consistently taken your makeup off before bed. Or maybe you’ve got a highly curated 12-step skincare routine. Or maybe you find yourself somewhere in the middle. No matter where you find yourself on your skincare journey, Wander Beauty is here to help you find what’s best for you and your routine. Today’s topic: Essence. What is it and why do you need it?

Essence-tially, It's a Skincare Primer

To put it in the simplest terms, it’s a primer for your skincare. When you use an essence, it opens your skin up for all other products to do their jobs. Sure, you can have an entire skincare routine without an essence, just like you can see an entire city without a tour guide. However, just like a tour guide opens your eyes to the ins and outs of a city you wouldn’t find on your own, so an essence opens your skin up to all the serums and solutions you want it to absorb.

So how does it work? Our essence specifically is oil-based, full of niacinamide and adenosine that work to even skin tone and soothe. Additionally, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid deeply penetrates skin for long-lasting hydration. All of these fancy ingredients provide hydration and soothe skin.


Where Does an Essence Fit in in Your Skincare Routine?

After you remove your makeup and cleanse your skin, traditionally you’d apply a toner and follow with an essence. But here at Wander, we know that time is of the essence (pun intended), so we’ve made it simple and combined both toner and essence into one convenient product. With Mist Connection, all you need to do is shake and spray onto cleansed skin. Then, your skin will be fully prepped and ready for the remainder of your skincare routine that follows.

The soft cloud-like mist evenly distributes product onto skin, making it totally hands-free if you want it to be. For extra oomph, press the formula into skin with fingertips. Follow your mist moment with a moisturizer and finish with a face oil to lock in all the hard work you’ve done.

Easy right? Let us know what you think of our new multitasker at @wander_beauty!
