Additional Information

Hydrating Water Essence is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 103.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job - texture could be improved Stickier than most essences I've used. Hydrating, but not enough for harsh winters. Good value for money if you are looking for an inexpensive essence. The amount also lasts a while. I've had this for 3 months and i'm just halfway through the bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I only regret that I didn't buy two I bought this on december because I saw it on sale for their end of season sale and decide to give it a try. I'm so glad that I did because this product is AMAZING it leaves my skin feeling so plump, fresh and hidrated. I use it in the morning and in the night and the results have been great, people complement me all the time for how nice my skin looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I bought this because I heard the we need a essence in our skin care regiment, I don't thought that I'll love it. It smell like water melon, but the scent is not strong at all. Is also very refreshing!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful product! I adore this essence. I have incorporated into my daily skin care routine, right after my PC toner. I can feel it putting the moisture back into my skin. The texture is great, too, somewhere between water and serum, it has a little body to it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for light moisturization Could double as a makeup primer. Great for summer months when only light moisture is needed. Nice ingredients for the price. Very light scent smells exactly like the juice that comes in canned fruit cocktail. Love it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells so good! I bought this about a week ago and I've used it in combination with other toners. It smells great and I like the consistency as well. It is hydrating but I usually put on 2 layers in the morning and at night. Since I use it along with other toners I'm not sure if it would be enough on its own. But iy has good ingredients in it so all around it's a good product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily one of the best I bought this just to try after seeing rave reviews for it on Reddit, and it really does live up to the hype. I was using a mix of The Ordinary's niacinamide and hyaluronic acid serums mixed with snail essence before, and this not only replaced all of them but is easier to use. More than anything else in my routine, this makes a visible difference in how smooth and soothed my skin is, and since I've started using it my skin has been better than it's been in years. I don't have a complicated routine either, just cleanse, this essence, then a moisturizer. I did read the reviews and notice that some people have had issues with it, and I'm wondering if it's the coconut water since some people can be sensitive to coconut products. There's also a fair bit of fragrance in it, and though it's never bothered me, it could be potentially irritating if you're sensitive to fragrances. One thing to note is that it's an essence, and the easiest way to apply it (for me) is to drip some in my palm and use my fingers it spread it over my face. I saw the review that someone rated it low because they couldn't find the spray nozzle and had to laugh because it doesn't have one, though it could easily be decanted into a spray bottle if that works better for you. Also this could be possibly used as a light moisturizer but isn't meant to be, and really shines best when layered under a moisturizer. Overall though, this is definitely worth trying and worked really well for me, and at $10 for a 5oz bottle (which lasts me almost a year), it's really cheap for such a good product.

Can these be used as a toner/instead of a toner? What is the consistency?

Asked by: Keal
The consistency is a little thicker than water but thinner than the thinnest syrup ;0)

Is this basically a toner?

Asked by: Ice Princess
An essence is a layering product that you put on after toner and before serums and moisturizer. A lot of the frustration I have with some of these reviews is that this is NOT meant to be a toner, nor a stand alone moisturizer. You use this in conjunction with your toner and moisturizer to deliver a more potent dose of beneficial skincare ingredients to the skin (in this case hydrating ingredients). The magic of essences is that you can choose a specific formula with particular ingredients to address specific skin issues that your other products can't address alone. Essences are your friend, buddy.

Mine just arrived. Should it look cloudy? Or have small items floating in it? (not air bubbles but something white).

Asked by: Mechellebelle
It should look relatively clear in the bottle (considering, of course, that the bottle is frosted), especially when it's still. When you shake it, it looks like it has little air bubbles suspended in the esscence that can look white. When you pour some in your hand, however, it should be completely clear. If not, contact customer service and ask for a replacement.

Why is there fragrance in this? I was really excited to try it until I read the ingredient list. Fragrance does nothing for the skin and it stops a lot of people with sensitive skin from being able to use it. 

Asked by: CARAD2015
I'm not certain why they chose to add fragrance, but it is rather unfortunate. It sill surprises me that there are people, even in the cosmetics industry, that don't understand that the ingredient "fragrance" is usually made up of many additional ingredients, any one of which could irritate sensitive skin. But sadly labeling laws allow companies to avoid listing the ingredients in their fragrances for proprietary reasons, which means that people with sensitive skin have no way of knowing if the product is actually safe for them to use. Hopefully elf will reconsider their decision to add fragrance to this product and change the formula. I'd rather deal with my products smelling weird than know that someone else could get hives just because they were looking for a good quality, inexpensive product.
