The Summer 2018 Tryouts selection: Hyggee All In One Essence
What is it?
An moisturising, brightening and anti-aging essence that is thick like a gel. Aimed at combination skin types – but can be used by all skin types, sensitive skin as always approach a little more cautiously.
What makes it interesting?
It’s a multi-targeting essence and the texture is so much thicker than a usual essence – some at Glowmo HQ were arguing whether it should be called an essence at all. In the multi-targeting formula there is a hyaluronic acid in there for hydration, hydrolysed collagen for the anti-ageing, bifida ferment lysate and brightening, soothing ingredients like niacinamide.
One of these bad boys will be in all orders - until our sample stock runs out.
Why did it win?
We were thinking of trying an essence that moves away from the usual watery essences (that are perfect for layering) to one that you can use pretty much on its own. The texture is like a gel and is useful in the warmer temperatures for those in a rush and who just want a quick boost of moisture.
It’s definitely practical.
What made it edge out was that unlike with the previous Tryout selection the SRB Enzyme powder – this one really proved a bit controversial at GLOWMO HQ. It sparked genuine debate on what is considered an essence and whether multi-use products were actually more practical than layering products that are more tuned to targeting specific concerns.
So giving you the final word seemed the best way to break the deadlock.
A tip for this one:
When/If layering with a thicker essence, definitely give it more time to settle in before applying your next product. A lightweight serum would be better going on before this essence – this is definitely the case if using a serum like the Abib Hypoderma SP1-2GF serum.

After cleansing and toning, dispense into hand and tap gently in.
