Additional Information

Hydrating Water Essence is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 98.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I bought this early January to try to focus on my 57 year ild skin. I totally am in love. My face feels perfect. I can stand moisturizers that leave my face feeling greasy and sticky. Not a problem with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skin drinks it up Both I and my little sisters really like this product. My dry skin feels so nice after applying. I also use it on my face alongside other e.l.f products. I'm already stocked up, so I don't run out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it so far The consistency is thicker than water but thinner than the thinnest syrup. It's comparable to a mid range competitor (raw sauce). Feels great on the skin. I put it on as a 3rd step after cleansing and toning, before serum and moisturizer. I prefer to put a few drops on my fingers, it doesn't drip because it's relatively thick and viscous. Then pat it on my face around the cheeks, forehead, chin and neck. I prefer than than cotton swab because I believe it wastes the product because it's absorb in the cotton. It's the first time I'm using the product so I don't know how effective it is yet. But I'm happy enough that it adds another layer of moisture on my skin. It doesn't feel heavy or oily or sticky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good! I like this product !! it is very hydrating and easy on skin, I have oily skin and this doesn't make it worst and it is also gentle on my acne marks,, I recommend it if you have dry skin or live in a dry state or area.

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.
