I probably have half a dozen different skincare products in my medicine cabinet. Lately I've been trying real hard to finish one bottle before opening another. Finally I was able to try the new Brightening Sparkling Water Pop Essence from LANEIGE. I've enjoyed this Korean beauty brand for a very long time. I have mostly used their Water Bank Eye Gel (Voted Best of Beauty by Allure Magazine), BB Cushion, and sheet masks.
Previouslly, I have been using Tatcha's The Essence and have finally finished the bottle. I must say I quite like it. However the sticker price of $95 USD a bottle is quite an expensive habit to keep.
So what did I think of LANEIGE's Brightening Sparkling Water Pop Essence? The application is super efficacious and refreshing! I love the bubbly texture that glides on silky. I must say I am in love. It also doesn't hurt that this essence retails only for $39 USD / $46 CAD. PLUS you can get up 9% Cash Back with Ebates.
Like drinking a glass of ice cold sparkling water in the summer, the carbon particles burst against skin, boosting turnover while massaging for improved circulation, giving you a clean complexion (contains 31% sparkling water).
This is the perfect essence / toner for the summer! It comes out cold and bubbly. Imagine applying this to your face when it is 30ºC outside! It is super hydrating and not sticky. The scent is not intruding and very light.
Sparkling water massages skin, alleviating the three main causes of skin dullness: dead skin cells, skin circulation, and impurities lodged in the pores; restore bright, healthy skin with sparkling water!
1. What is sparkling water?
Mineral water found in areas affected by late volcanic activity often contains carbon that forms in the process of disintegration of organic compounds in the soil, making it rich in minerals.
2. Benefits of sparkling water
1) Health benefits: Sparkling water is filling, just as a glass of sparkling water at work can be refreshing and rejuvenating.
2) Skin brightening effect: Sparkling water is effective in removing dead skin cells and is rich in minerals that help achieve bright, clear skin.

A little squirt the size of a nickel is more than enough. I recommend using this especially during the summer when your is more oily. Follow by your serum and moisturizer will give you a soft dewy complexion. Sometimes, I like to apply theBrightening Sparkling Water Pop Essence mid day if my skin is looking a little dull.
