My thoughts This is a lightweight, calming essence which provides long- lasting anti-redness effects. It is suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive. I loved using this, it was very refreshing & my skin just drank it up. I use this twice a day as a first essence. On the days my skin feels especially irritated I will use several layers of this & my skin is immediately soothed! It has a subtle herbal scent which dissipates quickly. I think this essence could very easily become a HG product for me & I have already stocked up.
