bought this essence on a whim during sale. have been using tatcha, SKii, missha essences up until now. this one has a thicker consistency than the other 3, feels very fresh and hydrating when going on. doesnt have the fermented urine smell that SKii essence has, and is much cheaper than the 2 japanese essences. its a winner for me...LOVE THIS ESSENCE!!...LOVE this essence. I've heard a lot about essences and been waiting for Juice Beauty to come out with one.
