The Essence is a true beauty elixir designed to restore skin’s vitality and freshness after just one use, helping serums and creams absorb more effectively for softer, radiant results. Perfect for anyone with dry skin.
This essence is packed with vitamins and minerals that nourish skin health, using Green Mineral Water, Garden Cress extract, and Kale to keep the complexion clear and vibrant.

Utilizing Green Mineral Water as its foundational ingredient while working to increase “original moisturizing ability,” and stop moisture loss.

This rich and thick formula may feel heavy or greasy when applied to oily skin types, so use it cautiously on oilier complexions.

While many of the ingredients are beneficial, this lotion does contain an excessive concentration of synthetic fragrance blends which may cause skin irritation for some consumers. Keep this in mind before purchasing this product.
If you try this product, I suggest one with no phthalates or sulfates in its ingredients list. Since there may be a long list of products you are considering purchasing, double-check their labels before deciding. One tool to help with this is the Cosmetics Database, which allows users to easily search for potentially hazardous ingredients found within beauty products.
Water Bank Toner
Laneige has recently unveiled the Water Bank Toner, an exfoliating toner designed to leave skin visibly soft while priming it for optimal absorption of your skincare regime. As one step of their 3-step system, this toner contains PHA (gluconolactone and soybean ferment extract) for gentle exfoliation, while Blue Hyaluronic Acid fermented with deep sea algae is quickly absorbed for intense hydration – thanks to Laneige’s Cream Blending Technology it combines toning properties with moisturizing properties – all in one bottle!
Zeichner recommends this Water Bank Toner as an ideal combination of exfoliant and moisturizer. At the same time, Jaliman suggests it for dry to typical skin types looking for a lightweight moisturizer that helps prevent fine lines and wrinkles. She appreciates how alcohol-free this toner is as it contains glycerin and honey, which have super hydrating properties. In addition, unlike many toners available today, it does not contain synthetic fragrances. Unfortunately, it lacks a pump, so using it might not be as convenient.
