At what point in my routine should I use this? Before toner or after toner? Before moisturizer?

Is there an expiration date?

I used this daily about a year ago. I stopped using it because I was having major skin problems and I wanted to be sure what the source was. I think it was something else, and I would like to try this again. But I’m not sure if my 2/3 full, year old bottle is still good.

Hi there, Thank you for reaching out. Please look at the period-after-opening symbol or PAO symbol is a graphic symbol that identifies the useful lifetime of a cosmetic product after its package has been opened for the first time. Our Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence has a 12M, we recommend to only use this product 12 months after opening to see full effects of the product. We hope this clarified your concern.

Fragrance?

I'm super allergic to certain fragrances and essential oils. The worst being rose. Does the fragrance formula contain any rose?

Does this exfoliate?

I’m wondering if I should use this after my chemically exfoliating toner in the morning. Does this replace an exfoliating toner? I want daily gentle exfoliation but I don’t want to do anything too harsh. I have combination/ rosacea prone skin. Thank you!
Asked by: Dora

What is the alternative to apply this? i get bad flare ups on my fingers due to eczema.

Face reacts well...only my fingers react poorly to the essence
