MISSHA ARTEMISIA CALMING ESSENCE 150ml
The essence soothes skin with Ganghwa's Artemisia Annua Extract,
which grew with the sea breeze and went through
two fermentation processes for a higher level of purity.
1. Process of Naturally Twice-Fermented ARTEMISIA
+ We grew ARTEMISIA with the pure sea breeze of Ganghwa Island, mineral soil, and warm sunlights.
+ We harvested ARTEMISIA with full effective skincare ingredients in September
+ We made ARTEMISIA extracts through double fermentation, once in warm temperatures and twice in cool temperatures.
+We have put extract with highly effective skincare ingredients through low-temperature & high pressure extracting methods.
2. More powerful skin-calming effect from Artemisia Annua
Extract than that of Centella Asiatica Extract! Immediately after applying
Artemisia Annua Extract on skin that's damaged by high heat, skin temperature improved by 11.2%,
representing a 55% higher skin-calming effect than that of Centella Asiatica Extract.
3. When your skin needs calming, the Artemisia Calming Essence
helps relieve the five major skin stressors.
HOW TO USE:
1. Moisturize dry skin! Apply multiple layers on dry, flaky skin for a skin-calming effect.
2. Calm sensitive skin! Soak cotton pads or mask sheets in essence and place them
on the skin for 5 to 10 minutes for soothing benefits.
Pleasant barely there scent, provides immediate feeling of moisture and calming, which helps buffer when I use retinol or acids. First I was just splashing and patting from my hands, but then I put this in a mister bottle (pack of 2 from Amazon) and mist generously over face, neck, and décolletage, then lightly pat it around for distribution. Once it's almost absorbed I add whatever serum is on the menu for the routine, etc. I'll even mist it after all products applied (but before SPF/BB cream with SPF, to help spread these more smoothly. It's a wee bit thicker than a toner, not quite an ampoule or serum, just as it should be!
Texture; a wee bit thicker than a straight up toner. Scent; very very light and pleasant. Effect; immediately calming and soothing on the skin. I've been using a few drops in my palms to pat onto my face and neck, which feels very nice, I think I might put some into a mister to lightly spritz as I think it will feel super calming. (especially in the morning after a retinol night treatment!)
I love this first essence. It is my to-go for winter especially now that I'm on Tretinoin. It both soothes any irritaion and hydrates my skin. I went through many bottles of this essence and still go back to it when my skin feels any irritation.
