Arcona Celestial Activating Essence review
I was luckily invited to the Sephora Thailand Spring 19 Press Event, where I got to explore some new launched from brands. And luckily, I received the new Arcona Celestial Activating Essence to try for myself.
I have been using this for 2 weeks, and I really like it.
Here’s the brand’s description:
This lightweight multifunctional essence delivers instant soothing hydration, while offering a boost of skin-perfecting actives. Pure D-Ribose energizes skin, improving the appearance of elasticity and overall complexion. Peptide based SensAmone helps calm irritated skin, while daylight activated Luminescine helps blur fine lines, wrinkles and imperfections, leaving your skin smooth and flawless. Potent antioxidants Rose, Chamomile and Green Tea defend against environmental impurities, while Sodium PCA hydrates delicate skin. Universally incorporates into any regime, either blended with your daily serums, or used alone for an immediate improvement in moisture, radiance and balance. Excellent for all skin types.
Perfect for everyday to super hydrate, brighten, and firm.
Allows for improved absorption of higher levels of actives.
Prepare and prime skin for serums and creams post-cleansing.
Helps blur fine lines, wrinkles and imperfections with daylight-activated Luminescine.
Finishes skin after makeup application.
How to use?
Use AM or PM, with one of the following delivery methods: Spritz into palm or onto a cotton pad and press into the skin for a quick-absorbing dose of hydration and antioxidants. Spritz 1 pump directly into your serums before applying to allow for improved absorption. Spritz over face during the day to finish and brighten the skin.
I have tried all the methods that the brand suggested, and I like the first method the most. I spritz into my palm and spread it all over my face. I tried 2 spritz at first, and that was a little bit too much. One pump is just perfect, and that will make one bottle last longer too.
I like the feeling when I spread this on my face. It absorbs super fast, but also leaves my skin feeling bouncy. I mean I do not mind using this as an additional skincare step in my morning routine at all. It barely took 5 seconds and its absorbed immediately.
As for the results, to be honest I have not seen any significant changes, because my skin isn’t troubled anyways. I mean my skin would probable be considered good, so I didn’t need much to improve.
However, I do agree that it does help “improve absorption of higher levels of actives”, and “prepare and prime skin for serums and creams post-cleansing”.
