My Skin: dry, sensitive.

About the Products

As you guys know, kombucha is a fermented and often sweetened tea drink with a lot of health benefits. Regarding skincare, kombucha is believed to be more potent than Vitamin C and Vitamin E combined, which makes it a wonderful source of antioxidants. All of the T'else products contain between 60% to 74% kombucha derived from black tea that promises to clear pores, delay aging, and make your skin happier and glowier.

All of the products mentioned in this post are cruelty-free🐇 and vegan🌱

The Essence

T'else Kombucha Teatox Essence (36 USD; Made in Korea) - is described as a hybrid between toner and essence that delivers instant hydration and boost of antioxidants beneficial for your skin's texture and appearance. It is also enriched with various molecular sizes of Hyaluronic Acid (to penetrate multiple skin layers) and Niacinamide (aka Vitamin B3 known for its soothing and brightening purposes).

This T'else product contains a generous amount of 150 ml/ 5 fl oz and comes in a beautiful glass bottle. The consistency is on a liquidy/watery side, so my recommendation would be to apply it with your hands vs. cotton rounds to avoid product waste. The Kombucha Teatox Essence has a barely noticeable, faint sweet tea scent which fully disappears once the liquid gets absorbed. Although slightly tinted (from the natural ingredients), it sets clear.

T'else Kombucha Teatox Essence Review

I love Korean toners. I see a big difference in my skin when I use them, as it becomes more supple, bouncy, and hydrated. The Kombucha Teatox Essence is one of the nicest formulations I got a chance to try thus far. My skin just drinks it up. Even on my most "irritated" days, this formula helps calm and soothe it. I love how other products layer on top of this essence and find that it keeps my skin well moisturized throughout the day. The formulation seems to be well-balanced and non-aggravating even for sensitive skin types. Can be used both during your AM or PM routines.

final thoughts

No matter what your skin type is, if you are looking for a toner that will help keep your complexion clear and hydrated, as well as create a nice occlusive layer for other skincare to go on top of, I think you will be quite happy with the Kombucha Teatox Essence. Particularly great for people that want to kiss dehydration goodbye. It is definitely in my top three at the moment and I give it A+.

The Ampoule

T'else Kombucha Teatox Ampoule (34 USD; Made in Korea) - is described as an ampoule serum that enhances skin radiance, evens out skin tone, and gently clears dead cells. Aside from Kombucha, Hyaluronic Acids, and Niacinamide other highlighted ingredients are Arginine (an amino acid that helps build protein) and Turmeric both of which should help strengthen skin elasticity and restore moisture. Overall, this formula offers a lot of anti-aging benefits.

The consistency of this serum is quite honey gel-like, yet without being sticky, gloppy, or thick. It glides on the skin with ease and leaves a dreamy glow behind. I must add that, similarly to the
