Abib Heartleaf Essence Calming Pump Review
This review contains affiliate links. I won this product in a giveaway.
Abib is a new to me brand. I won a wonderful package through Picky (highly recommend that app. Sign up here using invitation code 982961C6), and have had a great time getting to know the products. Watch the unboxing reel here.
The prize included four different essences - today’s review is about the heartleaf one.
Heartleaf is an anti-inflammatory ingredient that can soothe irritated and acne-prone skin. It has antibacterial properties and can help balance sebum production, making it a good option for people with acne prone and oily/combo skin.
How to use
Apply after toner
Pat in for better absorption
Just like the Yuja essence (review here), the Heartleaf essence has a gel-like consistency. A pump bottle works well for this. The essence is clear and has a very mild, pleasant scent. I can hardly detect it unless I hold the palms right up to my nose.
I have combination skin with an oily t-zone. Since I’m so fair, redness happens quickly and frequently, so I am always on the lookout for soothing and balancing products. I look for items that will help the oily areas without drying out the rest of the face.
So far, I am liking the Abib Hearleaf Essence. I’ve only had it for a few weeks, so definitely keep an eye out for a final update in one of my Youtube empties videos (playlist here). I typically use this at night, after toner and before other serums (if any) and moisturizer. To me, the texture would warrant naming this a serum - I’m more used to essences being watery.
The reason I use this at night is because that’s when I can see any redness from the day’s adventures. Abib Heartleaf Essence does a good job in soothing the irritation. I’ve had no dryness or other issues from using it.
