Which face essence to choose and give you smooth and healthy skin
30 Mar 2020

Face essence seems to be a mystery to even the most avid skincare enthusiasts, but those who know this all-star product, swear by it! Similar to serum, essence is concentrated in active ingredients and formulated to work at the cellular level to give you glowing, healthy skin. As one of the most powerful products in your skincare routine, an essence can provide the most noticeable improvements to your skin’s overall health and appearance when used daily. So, now that you know what an essence is, how do you choose the best essence product?

Thermal Life Plankton™: a golden ingredient

Famous for its regenerative properties, thermal Life Plankton™ is a powerful ingredient from the hot springs of the French Pyrenees mountains. This extraordinary microorganism is at the heart of Biotherm products and there are now two incredible essence formulas that feature the highest concentration of it possible.

Biotherm Life Plankton™ Essence: hydrate, strengthen, nourish

An iconic formula that was 8 years in the making, Life Plankton™ Essence is a unique face essence with a watery texture that transforms into a lightweight serum upon application and absorbs in seconds. Life Plankton™ Essence is ideal for those looking to plump fine lines, address dehydration or dryness, treat flaky patches, repair sun damaged skin, and restore their skin’s overall resilience.

Biotherm Life Plankton™ Clear Essence: mattify, clarify, smooth

Boasting the same concentration of thermal Life Plankton™, the new Life Plankton™ Clear Essence features an even lighter texture with gentle micro-exfoliating agents to clear away dull skin and reveal a brighter complexion. It also helps to reduce oiliness, minimize the appearance of pores, and smooth bumpy skin texture. In just 8 days, you’ll notice a brighter, more youthful complexion.
