Hydrating Water Essence is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 152.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Hydratio n Product I will always buy this product. I wish ELF would put it in a big bottle with pump so I could use easily in place of body lotion. It is a great moisturizer to use alone or before any other products. Love the smell to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this essence The people complaining about stickiness don’t know what they’re doing. Humectants are meant to be sticky, it’s chock full of hyaluronic acid and glycerin both of which are sticky. That feeling is temporary once you cover it with other products and they help your skin attract and retain moisture so definitely include them in your routine! Anyways, I applied this to damp skin after cleansing and toning. Follow it up with moisturizer and sunscreen in the morning, my moisturizer, chemical exfoliant (every other night), and occlusive (Cerave Healing Ointment or facial oil) in the evening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hydrating This does a very good job of hydrating the skin. This can easily be a dupe for other more expensive essences.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Dry Skin, Dewy Complexion and Soft Skin I have dry skin currently living in the high desert with a dry climate. This product has noticeably softened my skin and improved my overall complexion using twice daily. It is beneficial to apply as directed by patting it on the skin. I start with my nose and cheek area and pat towards the outside of my face, as excessive circular motion will cause lathering of the product. There was a slight tackiness after application as noted in other reviews, but it was temporary and lasted for less than a minute. I find that this layers well with additional products as it is very light after application. I usually use a toner, the Hydrating Water Essence, followed by a serum/sunscreen or heavier moisturizer at night. A little goes a long way and it is water based so pour slowly! Highly Recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very sticky Doesn’t feel like a true essence. Leaves the skin feeling sticky and tacky. I have dry skin, and the only way I can make this work it to apply straight out of the shower with a wet face

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this because i have super dry skin and was curious about using essences. I added this into my multi step skin routine and i love the way it feels. Its cooling and feel great after my toner. It allows my serums and moisturizers to absorb better. I currently use Lancome and laneige productsbut would be interested in trying more from the elf hydration line. The value is great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think it's good? I'm writing a review for this because I just finished the bottle. I love the smell; I can't distinguish any coconut or coffee (yum!) scent but it is very clean and pleasant smelling. As for the product itself, I have to admit that I have tried too many essences or toners (just watery/liquidy skincare items in general) to really compare. However, I liked it enough on its own. I used it and liked it especially during the day when I just washed my face and wanted to moisturize because I have a dry skin but I didn't want something too heavy like a night moisturizer, especially since I'll have to apply moisturizer again at night, before bed. My rating is 4 stars, not 5, however, because I used this under a hyaluronic acid (the popular Neutrogena one) and it just would not absorb. I tried the latter with other products, including water, and absorption is not a problem. So I don't know if it's the essence or the two products not working together but I was kind of disappointed about that. However, this is more of a personal experience based on no advice or instruction (and the very combination may work on others!), so take it with a grain of salt. Overall, pretty decent, if I say so with my limited experience with essences and the anecdote about mixing above. Simplicity may be the best course, after all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love! Honestly a holy grail in my kit. Great for all skin types, I'm an oily girl myself but everyone needs hydration and this is my favourite product for just that!!

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.
