Kicho Phyto Natural Total Essence
The Kicho Phyto Natural Total Essence is the next review in! I’ll keep these last two reviews short and sweet as I don’t really want to be repeating what I’ve already said before.
To summarise the Kicho Phyto range focuses on whitening and anti wrinkles! The essence is said to help improve overall skin texture as well as reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
I had a look at its ingredients on COSDNA to see if there were any glaring anomalies but generally, it all looks pretty good. I noticed it had Niacinamide in it which is great for reducing hyperpigmentation!
I have been interested in combating dark sports and other annoying things that are caused by sun damage. So I’ve tried introducing a vitamin C serum into my routine as well because that’s also good for combating hyperpigmentation.
However, I have read that you shouldn’t mix Niacinamide with vitamin C as they kind of cancel each other out. I thought this online article was really interesting to read as it explains the science behind it. So for the moment, I’m not using my vitamin C serum!
I had actually been mixing this with The Ordinary niacinamide (before I had really looked at the ingredients). My skin doesn’t seem any worse for doing this so I’ll continue to use it!
How does it feel?
- The essence feels silky and smooth over the face
- I find it leaves a fresh feeling on the skin.
- My overall skin texture feels very soft.
- It’s also fast absorbing like the rest of the range. It literally takes maybe 2 minutes and then I can move onto the next step.
As with everything else, it’s expensive at $78.00 for 40ml. Whilst I like the essence, I think I’ll stick with my COSRX snail mucin which is just as effective at a cheaper price! 😀
But if you’re looking for quality and a fast absorbing essence for your routine in the morning, you can take a look at the kicho website here.
