Product Review: Cremorlab Mineral Essence


      Today I have another essence up for review! The Mineral Treatment Essence by Cremorlab is the first product that I have tried from the brand. Cremorlab's essence is made with their proprietary T.E.N. thermal water from Geumjin. It claims that the water has the "golden ratio" of calcium to magnesium which allows the body to absorb the product at peak capacity. Read ahead to see how it compares to the other essences I've tried.

Review

      I have two big qualms about this product right off the bat - the bottle is made with plastic and not glass, and the smell of the essence is less than ideal. At $42, I really do think the product should come in a glass bottle. Secondly, I don't know if it's related to the essence being housed in a plastic bottle versus a glass one, but the essence itself smells a little like plastic. This is the first essence that I've used that is made primarily from a flower, chamomile to be exact, so I'm not sure if the scent is due to that. If it was, then the scent wouldn't bother me as much since the scent is coming from the ingredients and not due to being housed in a plastic bottle. Like all other essences, it is clear and feels exactly like water when you're putting it on your face. It is gentle, and doesn't sting my face even if I am suffering from any breakouts at the moment. Furthermore, it absorbs easily and I do feel like it keeps my face bright by giving it that lit within the skin glow.

Concluding Remarks


      The essence is available for purchase via Peach & Lily. While this essence still does what other essences do (brighten, smooth, etc), I do have concerns about the scent of the product smelling like plastic. If the company does change the packaging to a glass bottle, I would definitely repurchase again and see if the scent is due to the plastic bottle or to the ingredients in the essence itself. At this price point, Nature Republic sells their essence at $32 and it is housed in a glass bottle which I think is a better buy.
