So what does an essence do? This is the question I asked myself before buying this product, mind you, I will buy anything by Bader. The beauty counter person says an essence is meant to help your other products perform better hence applying this as a base product. Hence this is the badest to ever do it. A triple threat: chemical exfoliant, toner and essence which is really all you need and cuts the number of products you have to use right down. Look, give me a good cleanser, toner and moisturiser and a powerful serum and I’ll be good hence the think about essences is that they are a nice to have and this one is a nice to have, its a miracle in a bottle, do people still say that?

The one drawback is the smell… it smells harsh but it does the job.
