The version of this essence I am reviewing is the lite version in royal blue box, it's called Intense Care Galactomyces Lite Essence 96.5%. I am not crazy about the Korean beauty products which I have sampled on and off for years, mostly because they are too gentle, and quite ineffective for my skin. I am also a person who loves simplicity, I believe less is more, so I much prefer multi-tasking dermatologist-type skincare products, it saves me money as well as time. I had used SK-II essence for awhile, it drastically brightened my skin complexion, hydrated and tightened my skin, I like it very much. They are both very expensive, and eventually I have chosen Skinceuticals's C E Ferulic serum over SK-II essence instead, for a better well-around protection against free radicals and promote skin recovery. So, this Intense Care Lite Essence is an economical version of SK-II essence, with a higher percentage of the active ingredient, galactomyces. This becomes a must-try product. I got 2 bottles of 150ml as a package for roughly S53 USD. This is a light-weight essence, does not stink, with quick absorption, and leaves soft and supple, it does brighten up my skin a bit after roughly a week of use, and the improvement isn't that big. What I had with SK-II essence was an overnight makeover kind of skin improvement, despite of having a higher percentage of galactomyces, this one does not wow me like SK-II does. This is not a HG, but I consider this to be not bad for the cost-effectiveness. Nor is it what I would want to use as a toner or essence. I would soak cotton pads in it and use it as a hydrating mask.
