From dull to hyper-glowing skin: Wonder Essence

 Let’s face it. 


Your skin is dull.


Not dull enough to irk you whenever you look in the mirror but dull enough to feel a little envious when you look at Kwon Nara’s skin.. 


Bright Glowing Skin


I mean, who doesn’t want to possess skin that’s glowingly bright at every inch?


But like all (Korean) actresses - they're either born with it or has access to the plushest facials and products


It’s just such an unattainable feat to consider trying to achieve for yourself, right?


Before you agree to the exclusivity bias


Teleport down to the streets of Seoul Korea and you’ll find yourself strutting along side commuting civilians, no not celebrities, who all possess the same breathtakingly bright skin as if they just exited a derm’s office every . single . day




Well yes… the plushest products. But by plush I mean an expensive formula, not an expensive price tag. 


Enter Wonder Essence

 Simplistic Wonder Essence

Bet you’re more than experienced with this one:


Pretty packaging does not equal pretty results when it comes to skincare..


Remember the sheet mask with Disney characters that sensitised you into a blotchy mess? 


So I thought when I came into contact with Wonder Essence.. 


Brown, slim tonique bottle that glows when touched with the slightest bit of light. 


Pretty, but…


Probably smells like perfume, retail overly priced and contains a bunch of alcohol for that quick absorbing luxury brand moment


And then does nothing substantial…


But I was proven wrong within the first week of use


The glowing results


Have you ever had that moment when you look at your reflection and felt stunning for a minute or two?


That’s how I felt when I glanced past my reflection a week in with Wonder Essence, except that this time it’s not my outfit lighting up my appearance… It’s my skin!


Breathtakingly glowy and bright at every inch glaring right back at me


The areas that used be be dull (forehead, cheeks and side of my lips) blended in with the rest of my skin tone like I just indulged in… well… a plush facial 


Honestly, I have never considered my skin to be that dull and uneven until Wonder Essence turned on the switch to my brightest and most even glowing complexion yet


Passion behind the scenes

Simplistic Office

Let’s talk reality


When it comes to commercial brands that are dominating the skincare industry 


Guess who is at the top of the chain?


Yup, some corporate man with a team of marketers who probably heads to bed without moisturising


But here’s what’s exciting about the brain behind the classic formula Wonder Essence


The founder majored in Bio & fermentation convergence technology and is an actual chemist and formulated Wonder Essence in house!


I took to the claims of Wonder Essence from the creator himself and this was what he said:

“One of the main goals of the development of Wonder Essence was to optimise moisture in the skin without oil and to minimise daily oxidative activity. When skin is supplemented with the right ingredients daily, any area of dullness will start to light up and troubles will start to disappear”


The results from Wonder Essence stems from years of tireless research, studies and determination before hitting the nail on the head with the intended texture and efficacy we experience!

In that moment the mystery of how (seemingly) every Korean citizen strut the streets with star-struckingly illuminating skin daily whether they had a full night's sleep or not was finally answered:


Their prevalent, easy access to next-level formulas from local companies that truly care about the efficacy of the product's they develop rather than just sales


The classic formula


Wonder Essence's full ingredient list:

Amaranthus Hypochondriacus Seed Extract, Butylene Glycol, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Bifida Ferment Lysate, Glycerin, Niacinamide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Glutathione, Pinus Radiata Bark Extract, Beta-Glucan, Allantoin, Trehalose, Sodium Hyaluronate, Polyglutamic Acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder, Soy Isoflavones, Centella Asiatica Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA



Yes you see it right Wonder Essence is 100% waterless, free of alcohol, fragrance, synthetic dyes


Amaranthus Seed Extract


While most skincare products contain water in highest concentration

Eco-certified Amaranthus seed extract contains highly potent anti-oxidants that shields your skin against free-radicals, putting the brakes on your skin's aging speed

It takes the base of Wonder Essence intentionally because it has a skin-like structure that sends Wonder Essence's formula seeping deep into skin with full acceptance


The glow duo: Niacinamide and Glutathione

Niacinamide Glutathione

Added in high concentration, Niacinamide and Glutathione are responsible for brightening, whitening and evening out every inch of dullness for the full blown mesmerising glow you experience


This duo is so efficacious in Wonder Essence’s formula that KFDA (Korea food and drug administration) awarded Wonder Essence as a certified whitening + brightening product


Optimal moisture without oil: 5 natural moisturising factors

 natural moisturising factors

Beta-glucan + Trehalose + Hyaluronic Acid + Polyglutamic Acid + Soy Isoflavones


If you’re not aware, natural moisturising factors (protective coat that keeps skin's outer layer hydrated) are thick or if anything tacky but they're the secret sauce to plump skin that maintains high moisture levels

This is where Wonder Essence reached formula breakthrough with 5 heavyweight natural moisturising factors incorporated but maintains it's thinner than water texture


Talk about plush! 


Start lighting up the streets

Going from dull to bright is no small feat


Which is why so many beauty companies resort to create products that instantly gratify but at the compromise of your skin’s health… 


Like scrubs and stripping cleansers that eats at your thanks


You want a luxurious, scientifically powered formula that brightens up every inch of dullness you don’t even know is there to reach that Kwon Nara's facet without breaking the bank

Add Wonder Essence to the first step of your routine and start your glow journey in full speed


Who’s excited to flaunt and preserve your brightest, most even skin tone with me?
