I’m in the fourth trimester of my pregnancy where my skin been acting really weird. It is overly dry and sorta rough. When I was just thinking to refresh my skincare routine and to focus on hydration more just then this Wishtrend Quad Active Boosting Essence was sent to me to give this a try. This beautiful golden bottle made me excited instantly, didn’t wait a day to add it to my skincare routine.
Ingredients of Quad Active Boosting Essence:
This essence is a fresh new By Wishtrend Essence that is formulated with Propolis, 3-complex ingredients, honey ad black tea ferment. Honey is not something that excites me in skincare or in my food. Other than that I got hopeful seeing propolis in its ingredient. Because Propolis is known for its healing, balancing, and restorative characteristic.
Aqua(Water), Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract(10%), Centaurea Cyanus Flower Water(9%), Schisandra Chinensis Fruit Extract(9%), Morus Alba Bark Extract(8.7%), Nelumbo Nucifera Leaf Extract(8.7%), Methylpropanediol, Glycerin, Saccharomyces/Honey Ferment Filtrate, Saccharomyces/Xylinum/Black Tea Ferment, 1,2-Hexanediol, Propolis Extract(1%), Butylene Glycol, Benzyl Glycol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin
The packaging of Wishtrend Quad Active Boosting Essence has definitely a gorgeous look to it. This golden glass bottle compliments my vanity so well however I don’t find the packaging users friendly! It’s hard to tackle such a watery product when dispensed on bare hands. I wish it would come with a sprayer!
My postpartum skincare with By Wishtrend Quad Active Essence:
I’m not much of an essence person. I mostly find myself skipping toner while using essence or visa versa. Mainly because essence and toners mostly have the same texture and it’s mundane to use two similar products on top of each other. Not overly but kinda same happening with this Qad Active Boosting Essence
I am using Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic as my toner at the moment (whenever I’m using a toner) then I follow up with this Wishttrend Quad Active Bossing Essence. The texture of the essence is as thin and runny as water. Which is why I find it difficult to directly apply on the face. Instead of applying the Quad Active Essence directly, I’m using cotton pads. I soak the cotton pad with the essence and then lightly swipe over my face.
I was actually wasting a lot of product as I was soaking a cotton pad instead of using directly. This way at least I’m able to control the application of it. And so, saying it again, I wish it had a spray dispenser!
For my night-time skincare routine after applying Wishtrend Quad Active Essence I was layer two serum; first The Ordinary Niacinamide serum and then Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic serum. Lastly, I would finish off with a moisturizer (just started using Ponds age Miracle Night Cream).
My Experience with Quad Active Essence:
The Quad Active Essence feels very lightweight on the skin and leaves no stickiness although the ingredient list consists of honey and glycerin. It absorbs fast and my skin feels instantly hydrated after application. I also find it soothing to my nose because it’s not fragrant.
In conjunction with the other skincare products, I’ve been using in my skincare Wishtrend Qad Active Boosting essence been doing really good reviving my postpartum skin. I’ve also tried this alone for a couple of days and found out that it really works retaining thee moisture back on the skin.
The essence claims to have anti-inflammatory, anti-pollution, and anti-bacterial effects. I don’t have any other issues such as breakouts or so except dryness and rough texture of the skin so I couldn’t really justify those facts. I’m sure this will be one of those products that I’m going to miss once I’m done using it.
Do I recommend this By Wishtrend Essence?
Yes I do.
In general, I find Korean skin care products are quite good to give that boost of hydration on the skin. Considering the postpartum dehydrated skin I’ve now and the way this Wishtrend Quad Active Essence been helping me to maintain the hydration level, it is impressive.
Plus It is suitable for all skin types.
