The essence has an even more impressive ingredients list. The first ingredient is a phellinus linteus extract (meshima mushroom), which is a medicinal mushroom. It also has the bifida ferment lysate, a probiotic ingredient (used in one one of the most iconic serums – Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair). This ingredient it in all of the products in this range, but mostly in the middle or towards the end of the list. The essence however, has it as the second ingredient, then comes water, so you can tell this is a potent product. After that, it contains pretty much the same kind of floral and herbal extracts as the other products.
