Rated 5 out of 5 by blakerboo Little Known- Big Results
I received a packet sample of this product and didn't know what it was. I ended up applying it like a toner, probably using too much of it. But in the morning, my skin seemed more radiant and glowing.
I love the scent of this product, it's very herbal and natural. It seems to be more of a serum so I imagine that a 6.8 oz bottle would last quite a long time, making it an economical purchase.
I could never find this product on the Kiehls site, I had to do a search for it to even find it. Hopefully, it is being plugged more and will get more exposure since it's an awesome product that smells great and leaves your skin smooth and refreshed.
Rated 5 out of 5 by nford My Skin is Glowing!
I love this product. As an essence, you'll want to use this product after your toner, before your serum and treatment oil. I've noticed this only takes 1-2 drops to do the job - making this bottle last for up to a year. I've also noticed this product has brought more hydration to my skin and lightly exfoliated my skin. I've never seen my skin glowing as much as it does after using this treatment!
Wish there was a smaller size
Rated 5 out of 5 by SerenityNow The Best! Apparently, this is what my skin craves.
Bought this because I am always looking for something to improve my skin texture, clarity, etc. Within two weeks, I received 3 compliments on my skin -- from a friend (who also asked if I was pregnant, because my skin was glowing!), my mother (who notices everything), and a waitress at a restaurant. I have NEVER been complimented on my skin in my entire life before this, I usually have acne and acne scars, and my skin is either dry and dull or oily. I'm about 2/3 of the way through my first bottle, and my skin is the best it's ever been. Apparently, all it wanted was the right amount of exfoliation and moisture, and this magical formula provides exactly that. I use it morning and night, and transfer it into an eyedropper bottle, because the original packaging is not quite right. It's the first product I use immediately after washing my face, usually followed by the hydro-plumping serum (also a fantastic product).
Rated 5 out of 5 by Varelia Love this product very much!
I love this product, already purchased three time. very rich essential location. Little sticky but perfect using before a toner for my combination skin. This is great performance and value.
Rated 5 out of 5 by minsocal Why isn't this on every buzz list?
I have been using this product for a few months now and consider it an essential part of my skin care routine. I have always had problematic skin - dry yet prone to break outs in addition to just general issues from aging to sun exposure. Since using this, I have seen a noticeable difference in my skin such that I feel totally comfortable with no make-up at all. In addition the wrinkles around my eyes are barely apparent. I think that this essence just makes the other products I use work better and conditions the skin to better absorb moisture. This is especially apparent on my lips which are chronically chapped. A few taps of essence and a lip balm and I am ready to go. I start with ultra facial toner, this essence, midnight recovery or line reducing concentrate and end with either crème d'elegance or skin rescue. Nothing too crazy, but the results are great. I truly attribute this to the essence.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Yumi Great as a First or Second Step after Cleansing
Love this product! I have dry skin that can look dull at times. After trying this product from a sample I received, people started to compliment me, saying my skin was glowing. I noticed the difference when I ran out of the sample and my skin didn't have that same glow. Needless to say, got the full size as soon as I could. After trying this product, I realized the importance of the skincare steps: toner, essence/serum, and moisturizer. This product has the perfect viscosity for hydration between the toner and moisturizer. So highly recommend for dry skin and all skin types during the winter months.
Rated 2 out of 5 by jane42 not worth the price
I only have myself to blame: I caved in to the marketing and now I have a bottle of basically scented water that I splash on my face every morning. No bad effects, but I haven't noticed any benefits either. The only plus is that one bottle will probably last over a year.

Although i love the texture (i'm a texture snob) i haven noticed much in the depart of "illumination" i guess its because I use midnight recovery. Overall its a nice hydrating formula (I have dry skin).
