i got the small size from this essence as a sample not too long ago (probably 2 weeks) and have used it up tonight and can give an actual opinion on it. i'm liking this essence very much!! it's my first rovectin product and i'm positively suprised of this magical product. with a thicker viscosity and not really water like consistence, it felt super hydrating. my skin was really dewy and looked really good under makeup and layered well with my toners, serums and other skincare products. there was so greasy or oily residue or layer on my skin and didn't freak my skin out. i dunno if i'm just gaslighting myself into thinking this, but it helped with evening my skin texture and post pimple marks which had me shocked in a way. overall, i can say that this product is amazing and good for any skintype and skin concern to hydrate it well. i will try to get my hands on this once i see it being on sale or being sold for a good price!! i would give this product 4.4 out of 5 stars

Usually toners dont do anything but OMG!! I was using another toner which was breaking me out and I had a little left from my old bottle and I was just going to use the last few drops as to not waste obvi and I swear to you this is not some overnight marketing scam but I literally woke up the next day with some of my texture gone, redness and dark spots toned down SO MUCH. It hydrates so well for my dehydrated skin. I don't know what ingredient in this helps with acne scars and texture bc it's literally just an essence but seriously. Literally bought 3 times already over the past years bc its so good.
