What's the difference between a serum and an essence?

(It's all to do with the active ingredients)

An essence and a serum are both skincare products that are applied after cleansing and toning, but before moisturizing. They are both typically water-based and are used to deliver specific active ingredients to the skin to target specific skincare concerns.

The main difference between an essence and a serum is the concentration of active ingredients. An essence typically has a lower concentration of active ingredients than a serum, and is used as a lightweight, hydrating step in a skincare routine. An essence is also typically more watery and less viscous than a serum.

On the other hand, a serum has a higher concentration of active ingredients, and is used to target specific skincare concerns, such as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brightening the skin, or controlling oil production. A serum is typically more concentrated and thicker than an essence, and is designed to penetrate the skin more deeply.

In general, an essence is used to hydrate and nourish the skin, while a serum is used to target specific skincare concerns. Some skincare routines may include both an essence and a serum, while others may only use one or the other. The best choice for your skincare routine will depend on your specific skin type and concerns.
