Exfoliating ESSENCES | Review

I’m reviewing 2 new products that are a whole new way to do Essence! These are multi-functioning exfoliating essences and I love me a 2-in-1 product! I definitely take a gentle approach to exfoliation so I wanted to know whether or not these could do the job!

Nothing’s better than applying skincare with the cutest headband ever!~ We’re twins^^ I love the time you put into making videos.

pewpewnim says:

The pumice, zinc and oat face scrub from formula 10.0.6 is a holy grail for me. It works as well as the SK-II stuff(chemical exfoliants)

Jasmine G-H says:

Thank you so much for this review. I’ve been eyeing the Neogen code 9 Lemon essence for some time now and I couldn’t find anyone doing a review on it (because it’s really new I guess). I have combination to oily skin so I get really oily (or acne) when I use heavy products, especially now in the summer. Is it necessary to use an exfoliating essence because since they look really interesting I wanted to try out one. Thank you!

Angie Le says:

Hi Renee, do you keep the Neogen code 9 jar in the fridge until next use? Thanks!

Kalimero says:

Can you make a video reviewing affordable sheet masks like I am real by tony moly, Sally’s box loverecipe masks, eggpore by tony moly etc.

Santiago Aguilare says:

VickyMorr says:

Do you keep the neogen essence in the fridge?

Anthony Perry says:

Hi Renee,  Thank you for taking the time to do this video, as usual I really enjoyed, I don’t think I will be able to try these as I have oily combo skin, not to worry I’m sure there will be plenty of products that I will be able to use.thanks again,,      Ria x

ANH Ngo says:

Can you do a skin care regimen  for mature dry skin  please xoxo  I love and looking forward to your video

What is the purpose of an essence if it’s not a toner or a moisturizer?

Naz Qassim says:

I jst love you
I love you explain things as a pharmacy student I find your videos really really helpful thank you

Kim KimParkLeeChOhLuMoon says:

I have acne/ acneprone but more combo to dry skin – do you think I could still give those a try?

Vivian says:

Do I have to refrigerate it after every use?

Corinne Elysia says:

Do you have any recommendations for men? How to fit the routines into shaving? My husband is hooked to my regimen but he would love some info on helping his beard. Example he loves p50 but after he shaves he can’t. ❤️ your videos. My skin says thank you.

France Rioux says:

I received the neogen lemon caviar today and just finished trying it, I didn’t know that I had to keep the essence on so I rinsed it off lol. Even after rinsing it off, while I was applying my other skincare products I noticed that my skin had a nice glow to it, great product! Thanks for another awesome recommendation!

GLORIA P says:

Another awesome video! I do have a question (dumb) what do you mean by congestion?

ANH Ngo says:

You have convinced me use exfoliating toner. I’m trying Pericone Md pre-empt pore mininmizer with green tea, turmeric extract. I took your skin care concept to heart thanks xoxo

I bought the peeling tap today because I’m so intrigued by your reviews. Thanks for being very informative. Love your videos!!!

chriseqisaeqmoi says:

Thank you for these. Always love your skincare reviews, product roundups, and informational guides on ingredients and types of products. You seem to have the same needs/tastes in products as me too. Would love ot try these as an additional alternative to use every once in awhile to mix it up from an acid toner (Good Genes by Sunday Riley/Pixi’s Glow Tonic etc)

What products can I use for brown spots on my face

RidleyOh says:

How do you remove the second product? Does it act like a peel off mask? or do you wash it off with water after you’re done? Not sure if i missed it being said in the video, but I wasn’t sure. Just wanted to ask 🙂

I find it interesting that these products are so hydrating.
Usually exfoliating products aren’t associated hydration.

teenysquirrel says:

OMG..your hair is extra amazing here! When you get your haircut, do you ask your stylist to texturize it with a lot of layers?

Kimberly York says:

Like many others, I have enjoyed the educational process in your videos. I have purchased a half dozen or so products at your recommendation (plus 2 more from this video). I have not been disappointed with any of them. I am 46 with normal to dry with patches of eczema on my face and arms. I don’t think I look my age thanks to you tubers like yourself. My favorite video is making your own custom compact video. I purchased the sparkle ampoule and think that product has been a game changer. Thanks!
