I can’t say Nacific is a new-to-me brand - I’m familiar with the name, but have tried very few (if any?) of their products. That’s why I was excited to get Nacific Real Floral Essence Calendula, available on Amazon, YesStyle (reward code KBHOBBIT), Jolse, and StyleKorean.
Calendula is traditionally viewed as soothing and great for skin issues. My mom used to steep the actual flowers at home and add them to baths. I love calendula. Nacific essence promises to soothe all skin types, even sensitive ones.
How to use
Apply after cleansing and toning
Gently massage / pat in
Follow with the rest of your routine
Nacific floral essence can be used in the morning or at night. I stick to evenings, because my morning routines are basic and contain only a couple of steps. Sometimes I do a toner, Nacific, and moisturizer, and other times I add other serums after Nacific. The essence has a thin gel consistency, a lovely scent, and no noticeable stickiness (at least not when followed by moisturizer).
I have combination skin with some signs of aging and freckles.
This is nice but not too impressive. The essence is refreshing (would likely feel great in the summer if stored in the fridge between uses) and smells pleasant. I haven’t seen any huge changes in my skin. Actually, I haven’t even seen minor changes. I had two bottles of this and gave one to a friend with sensitive skin, with a full disclaimer to tread lightly since the Floral Essence contains a lot of plant ingredients. Surprisingly, she didn’t have any adverse reactions.
As always, skin and preferences are all different, so someone else may find a holy grail in this product. For me, it was another forgettable gel-like essence that I could easily live without. My favorite part of the entire experience is the scent. I wouldn’t go out of my way to get this again, and would likely just regift if it ever ended up in my PR mail. But I’m spoiled with lots of other options.
