Please let me show you my review.
Albion recommends steps of wash, emulsion (Milk), lotion, and something to wrap.
This essence is one of the items for the final step of Albion method.
The scent is the same with other Infinesse, but when I use this essence only, this is not pretty much strong like other items like milk.
When I use some brightening items, I sometimes get sting, but so far, there are no problem for me. And compared with other items of Albion, I felt it is not pretty much oily. It does not mean it has less oil. I suppose you should keep your steps from this brand of Albion, if you are an oil prone.
According to Albion, it brings supple skin and brighten. I am satisfied with my skin is still well suppled, and using with samples, I can not say it brighten my skin torn up.
Checking what Japanese reviewers are saying, seems some says it is not enough moisturized, and I agree with this. But using with other Albion items like Infinesse Milk or something, your skin will be moisturized so well, I like lighter items, and on this point, this is good for me.
Others are saying they found significant difference of brighten with using this essence few times, but I can not say so in person.
