5 Autumn essentials: Part one — Toners and Emulsions

I can live without toners in winter or spring but not in autumn, as it is the period of extra dryness and lack of warmth. Here are my heros for every concern.

Dry/Sensitive

I received this product for free from Picky and Mary&May in exchange for my honest review. This essence is actually a product I have already tried and my favorite product in the Mary & May blackberry line. It’s a dream for dry skin! It’s silky, hydrating, and soothing. It contains so many amazing ingredients like blackberry and fig extracts, jojoba, cica, hyaluronic acid, and ceramides. This essence is a bi-layer product that looks so beautiful when it mixes into a lovely milky texture. It smooths onto skin so nicely and absorbs quickly. No stickiness or tackiness ever, just instant absorption that leaves skin feeling incredibly hydrated and supple. It does contain jojoba oil, but it does not feel or look oily on my skin at all. It contains no added fragrance, just has a very natural, very slight sweet blackberry smell to me. I really enjoy using this essence both day and night.

Probio-Cica line — gourmand pleasure for your skin. Why I call this line gourmand? Maybe, because of fermented centella? Or upper end quality and pricing? Not at all. That's because of the textures 🥰 They are unique, so don't stop reading to find out more)) Step 1: Essence Toner This one is kissel-like liquid with no smell or colour. The toner is packed with different kinds of hyaluronic acid and is quite thick that make it really and essence. Kissel texture also makes it super easy to be applied with your fingers even if you are in hurry. Surprisingly, the toner's thickness does not mean it to be sticky. As a result, we have a marvelous treat for your skin in the morning. It is hard to make final judgments only after two-week use of the line, nevertheless my overall impression is more than good. My skin feels quicker and easier. Dry patches has gone and my pores are not clogged. Promising, I'd say 🤎

Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Emulsion

Mature saggy skin. Being rich, it's surprisingly light-weight. The only ginseng I know that realy makes your skin look more firm.

SRP: US $92.00 Size: 125 mL This is a great day moisturizer for my oily skin. Hydrates, moisturizes, and works well under sunscreen. This has a lotion texture that spreads smoothly. It’s rich in Steamed Ginseng Water Concentrate™ which is condensed ginseng water. Ginseng has been shown to have potent antioxidant properties, can inhibit wrinkle formation, and increase moisture in the skin. There is no alcohol in this emulsion. This smells like ginseng with a little floral (not my favorite scent among the Sulwhasoo Ginseng products) but it doesn’t linger. The product is housed in an opaque ceramic bottle with a pump dispenser. I rate this 5 stars because I love Sulwhasoo especially the Concentrated Ginseng line. I often switch brands and notice that my skin feels and looks plumper, brighter, healthier, and generally more nourished with Sulwhasoo. Other products from different brands do that too but I’m partial to those with ginsent scent.

Dry/Sensitive

Mugwort aka Artemisia is used in skincare products designed to soothe sensitive skin, treat dry skin and acne. It's also antibacterial and antifungal. Full of vitamin E and other antioxidants, it protects, nourishes and hydrates the skin🌿 This Mugwort Essence from i'm from contains 100% mugwort and is a great product for calming my skin, especially whenever it feels irritated or when I'm having painful breakouts. I like how the watery texture is ideal for layering and I've had no problems combining it with all of my other skincare products 💚 The herbal mugwort scent is thankfully not that strong, unlike the brands Mugwort Mask which I hated for its way too strong scent, and I've had no problems with this product at all! Had already tried the smaller size before purchasing the full-sized product; I'm almost through with the bottle and can see myself re-purchasing this more than often

If you are really oily skinned, I would recommend you ginseng rather than blackberry.
