I always opt to skincare routine that focusing more on hydrating for my oily dehydated skin. Hence, my routine usually consists of few products that mainly focused on hydration be it toner, essence, emulsion, or serum. One of the product that I discovered recently that did great on supplying hydration to my skin is the one from THE SAEM which is called The Saem Iceland Hydrating Essence.
This essence claims to be a hydrating essence that gives a rich moisture with Iceland mineral water and vitamin capsules. It ensures skin to be keep mosturized and healthy. With Vitamin E Capsules, this essence hydrates skin and enhance the moisture content of the skin. Apart from containing Iceland mineral water, this product also contains Arctic plants from Iceland that supplies strong moisture energy to the skin. Among them are Iceland Kelp to prevent loss of skin moisture, Iceland Moss that soothes sensitive skin, Arctic Berry that hold mosturising energy, also active marine ingredients that promotes instant skin plumping and firming effect.

First of all, let’s talk about the beautiful packaging. Credits to THE SAEM for paying attention to the details of the packaging as I noticed most of the products come with pretty and stand out packaging. Just like this essence, it comes in a gorgeous design of glass bottle, with the plastic cap with a touch of ‘woody’ design to complete the elegant look, added with the blue colored essence, it’s really a picture worthy for me! I also appreciate this product comes in a pump, so it makes easier to dispense the essence with necessary amount.
Let’s move on to the texture. It is slightly thicker than standard essence our there, or should I say a bit gel-like texture? But once it is on the skin, it spreads beautifully like water droplets and quickly absorbed into the skin with no greasy and sticky feeling. I’m very happy to report that it quickly makes my skin feels moist and hydrated. I would say it lives up to its name, hydrating essence, it delivers just the right amount of hydration needed by my skin. The scent for is more like floral, sometimes I feel like it smells like talcum or lotion used by my grandma But all in all, it doesn’t overpowering and also doesn’t linger.
I would say this product is able to complement my skincare routine in terms of boosting the hydration effect to my skin. I also love to use it during my mid day routine because with this essence alone, I can just skip the hydrating toner, and straight away use it. For my oily skin, I believe it get enough hydration from it, thus without the hydrating toner, my skin still feels moist and looks glowing too! That is why I often reach out this product!
Is this product worth to try? Definitely yes! If you are searching for a product that can provide more hydration to your skin, this is the product that you can try! Apart from the gorgeous packaging, the effect is quite impressive and the fact that it’s very quickly absorbed with no heavy feeling, it’s definitely a great choice for those who always rush but need hydration for skin
Rate : 4/5! I’m a happy user! I’m glad I get to try this product and I’m very excited to try another variant as I heard they did pretty jobs too!
