I’m having somewhat of a love affair with essences right now, and I just love trying new essences. I bought the B Essence Facial Lotion on a whim when Superdrug had a buy one, get one free deal on their own brand skincare ranges. I’ve had a mixed experience when it comes to the B skincare, but even at full price, the B Essence Facial Lotion is only £6.99.
B Essence Facial Lotion
B is Superdrug’s own beauty brand which offers makeup, skincare and tanning products. The name is always a little annoying as a blogger as it’s technically B. however you can’t put full stops in product names or URLs when writing posts, but it’s B by Superdrug.
“B. Refreshed is a lightweight, soothing essence lotion. It replenishes skin with 12 hour intense moisture. Instantly soothes – Allantoin helps to soften, protect and soothe. Softens and smoothes – With naturally derived Algae Extract. 12hr hydration – Packed with Hyaluronic Acid to moisturise deep down. Dermatologically approved.“
The directions for the B Essence Facial Lotion are simple, you just apply a few drops into your hand and gently pat onto the skin until fully absorbed. For best results, Superdrug recommend using the essence both morning and night before your day/night cream.
An essence is essentially a liquid which you apply to the skin with your hands rather than with a cotton pad, and can help to add in an extra layer of hydration for dehydrated skins and the B Essence Facial Lotion is such a lovely budget friendly essence.
It feels so soothing and pleasant to pat into the skin, and instantly leaves my skin feeling more hydrated and works well when applied to the skin before my serum as an extra layer of hydration. On my no makeup days, I also sometimes like to apply essence during the day, as I love how softening and hydrating they are.
They leave the skin feeling so fresh and soothed, and considering the B Essence Facial Lotion is pretty much always on a buy one, get one free deal and is only £6.99, it’s amazing.
