I have many favorite skin care brands and THE PLANT BASE is one of them. I fell in love with this Korean skin care brand ever since I reviewed three of their ampoules, which helped improve my skin concerns.
THE PLANT BASE uses naturally derived ingredients and all their products are hypoallergenic. The Nature Solution line makes use of nourishing ingredients including bamboo extract and natural essential oils along with INFLAX™, which is the brand’s patented ingredient that improves the appearance of fine lines and is also a great antioxidant for the skin.
The transition from winter to spring has left my skin feeling quite dehydrated and dull. To fix that, I’m incorporating two skin care products into my daily routines: the Nature Solution Skin Essence and Nature Solution Blending Moisture Cream.
Main ingredients: Bamboo extract, centaurea cyanus and lavender flower water and INFLAX™
My experience: I never knew the importance of essences until I started incorporating them into my skin care routine. The Nature Solution Skin Essence is packed with 13 different natural essential oils, such as jojoba seed oil, rose flower oil, sandalwood oil and lavender oil, which leave my skin feeling extra plump and hydrated.
This essence utilizes an oil drop technology that helps it absorb easily into your skin and prevents moisture loss. It feels extremely light when applied on my skin, so I can immediately dive right into the next step of my routine. Since the essence is formulated with natural oils, there is a scent but it’s a subtle and refreshing one. It doesn’t irritate my skin, so that’s a plus!
Most essences I’ve used don’t have the same pump-type packaging as this essence, which provides an easy dispensing experience. As much as I enjoy this packaging, THE PLANT BASE recently updated the packaging for the Nature Solution Skin Essence, so if you want to give it a go, you’ll receive it in a dropper bottle. There’s no change in its formulation so you’ll still get the same benefits.
How it fits in my routine: I mostly use this essence in my morning routine because of how light it is, but you can also incorporate it into your evening routine.
Main ingredients: Bamboo extract, niacinamide, adenosine and INFLAX™
My experience: As I get older, I no longer just look for hydrating benefits in my moisturizers, especially in my night cream. Anti-aging benefits are a must and this cream offers nourishing, anti-aging and brightening benefits, so I was very excited to try this.
The Nature Solution Blending Moisture Cream isn’t like other moisturizers. It comes with two visible layers, which you’re supposed to mix together before application.
The top is an oil layer that contains 24 kinds of natural botanical oils such as olive, coconut and argan oils. The oils soothe the skin and work to protect the skin’s moisture barrier. The bottom is a cream layer which is packed with 33 types of botanic active ingredients, including shea butter, green tea and bamboo extracts. The cream nourishes the skin, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and helps strengthen the skin’s barrier.
I usually incorporate face oil into my night skin care routine but I can skip this step now that I use the Nature Solution Blending Moisture Cream, which is already packed with many natural oils. Overall, this cream is my current favorite night cream. It makes my skin glow and feel super moisturized. Some of my fine lines also look less noticeable and although it can’t completely fade my dark post-acne spots, I find that it does help lighten them quite a bit.
How it fits in my routine: I tried the cream in my morning routine and even though it’s hydrating, my combination skin looked a bit slick by midday. I recommend using this as your daytime moisturizer if you have dry or dehydrated skin. This cream works perfectly when I use it in the evenings so I apply it at the last step of my night time skin care routine.
My final thoughts
I really like how easily the Nature Solution Skin Essence and Blending Moisture Cream fit well with my other skin care products in both my morning and night skin care routines. The essence definitely delivers when it comes to its hydrating powers and I love how my complexion looks brighter and more even. If your skin feels dry, dehydrated or dull, I recommend giving these products a go to help fix that.
