[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was skeptical when this product first came out. After using a sample, I’m a believer. I use this line and the Le Blanc line because I have dry skin and some discoloration. When I swithched to the Le Blanc serium, I stopped using the Hydra. But I still had some dryness. This product, the essence, gives me that underlying moisture base and the little boost that I needed. However, it’s so light that it doesn’t impact my foundation.
