Essences traditionally were more watered-down and less concentrated than serums, and were used after a toner to add another layer of hydration before you applied serums. The roles have since reversed. Just like serums are changing and becoming lighter and more watery in texture, essences are changing and being made into creamy or gel-like formulas.

Essence is considered to be the heart of the Korean skin care routine and is meant to be used after cleansing the skin and applying a hydration prepping toner.
