An essence, as many of you know, is a very important product if you follow the 10 Step Korean skincare routine. Today I will be reviewing Swanicoco's The Bio Therapy 1st Essence.


A treatment essence that formulated with 99% of Bifida Ferment Lysate.

Product Details:
A lightweight, non-sticky texture that dissolves rapidly into skin.
Enriched with Bifida Ferment Extracts to strengthen skin's natural barrier and improve skin resilience.
Delivers essential nutrients & moisture while refining skin surface.
Suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.


The packaging is a simple cardboard box with a lot of information printed on it regarding the function product.

The product comes in a translucid bottle.
On the front and back part, details about the product and company are printed on it.

The expiration date of the product is printed on the bottle.

Inside the box, there is specific information about the function of the essence.

Aside from the silver-metallic cap of the bottle, the essence is protected by a plastic seal.

It was a little bit hard to open it, though.


Bifida Ferment Lysate, Butylene Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Allantoin.


I have been always using an essence with a specific function, and tbh it was my first time to use a "First Essence".
The essence's texture is watery and non-sticky, which I really like a lot because it's so easy to apply and spread on the skin and it dries immediately.
The essence has no strong scent at all, and actually, I don't even smell any scent of it.
I have been using this one for about two months now, I didn't write a review about it even after using it for more than 20 days consecutively because I wanted to see how this product would react if ever I have any breakouts.
From the beginning of using this product, it didn't cause me any breakouts - but I still had skin breakouts due to hormonal imbalance, especially during my period, and due to stress at work. I was really surprised that this product never ever worsened the problem, on the contrary, it reduced the breakouts and evened my skin tone.
It soothed also the redness of my skin, especially on my cheeks where it usually gets flaky before.


I have nothing contrary about this essence, though it may be a quite pricey, it's worth buying because it's really awesome for those who have sensitive skin.
