What's the Difference Between a Toner and an Essence?

What's the difference between an essence and a toner, and do you really need an essence in your skincare routine as a mama? 

While an essence is similar to a toner, there are some differences.

A toner is a liquid product primarily used to balance the skin's pH level after cleansing. It helps remove residual impurities or traces of cleanser. It also prepares the skin for better absorption of subsequent skincare products. Some toners can also provide additional benefits like hydration or soothing effects.

An essence on the other hand, adds instant and deeper hydration and preps the skin to properly absorb your other treatments. It is designed to deliver active ingredients deep into the skin to address specific concerns such as brightening, anti-aging, or soothing. This can be especially important for pregnancy or postpartum, when dry and dehydrated skin are common.
