Bitgoa Hue Essence Emulsion Review
Hi everyone! Sorry it has been a while since my last review! I’m hoping that with settling into my new groove I’ll be able to bring back some beauty into our lives around EOTW.
So – Bitgoa. If you haven’t heard of this brand yet, it’s one of the lines under Shangpree! I’ve already reviewed their amazing and one of my all-star favourites, the Pore Tightening Mask. Today I’ll be weighing in on their Bitgoa Hue Essence Emulsion.
Bitgoa Hue Essence Emulsion is an in betweener item used between toner and serum before moisturizer. According to Peach and Lily, the Bitgoa Hue series is formulated with natural fermented extracts including lotus, soybean, pomegranate, rice, milk, and ginseng root.
The emulsion I have is a sample from Shangpree’s Deluxe Home Spa Kit. The packaging is a simple plastic 30 mL bottle with a screw on cap.
Bitgoa Hue Essence Emulsion
The way I use emulsion differs during different seasons. Because Edmonton has recently been having a cold snap and I’ve also ran out of serum, I’ve replaced my serum step with the Bitgoa Hue Essence Emulsion. In summer months, I like to use emulsion as a moisturizer because it’s much lighter and less greasy.
I simply unscrew the cap, toss about a dime size dollop onto the palm of my hand and smooth it on my face and neck after spraying it with toner. It smells amazing – it’s definitely identifiable as ginseng root but it’s quite faint, so no worries about smelling like an 80 year old Asian grandma. It legit glides on the face and absorbs readily within seconds.
- My face was really suffering from lack of serum when it was really cold. I was using Fresh’s Seaberry Oil on my problem dry spots (between eyebrows, cheeks) but even my dad(!) commented on how greasy my face looked! I stopped using the oil. But I still needed something – I was hoping to hold on til when I hop on a plane to Asia at the end of March (omg so excited), but no go. The emulsion really helped rebalance my skin, and now it is dewy dewmaster!
- Having experienced the magic of soybean in Fresh’s Soy Face Cleanser, I must say that having this ingredient in the Bitgoa Hue Essence Emulsion has boosted my confidence in the product. I’m looking forward to using more products with some of the other ingredients like lotus and rice to see how those turn out.
- I didn’t think I would like the smell of it, but I freaking love it!
– As I had mentioned above, feel free to try this as a serum if you’re in a cold climate. The good thing about this is that it transitions well into a summer moisturizer.
