    Difference between Serum and Essence

    Hi,

    Anybody knows what is the difference between serum and essence?

    Went to try out chanel's hydration range serum ($105) and kose's sekkisei serum ($145!).. Both are good. But still looking out for a cheaper/better one.

    Not sure if i should get a serum or an essence.

    Any recommendations?


    TIA!

    i think both serums and essences are the same thing. they are more concentrated in their ingredients to deliver better results than toners/moisturisers.

    i thought both are the same?they are for targeting a specific problem like whitening,anti ageing etc...contain more concentration of active ingredients.

    i just checked with chanel's SA and was told that serum and essence are the same thing *confused* anyway, i've bought a serum from The Face Shop $24.90 and now they have 20% + 5% discount!

    I doubt its the same , a mask is more concentrated and you could apply once a week.
