Great for dry to normal skin types, this essence has a non-sticky finish and is free of parabens, artificial color, artificial flavor, triethanolamine, and phthalate.

This stuff is amazing!! I have pretty dry skin, but can't stand the feeling of heavier creams on my face. This sinks in quickly and keeps my skin happy and non-flaky. Definitely one of my holy grail products!
