Goodal Waterest First Essence

We’re going gaga over the innovative beauty products popping up from Korean beauty brands, and this moisturizer with a fun jelly-like texture doesn’t let us down. A favorite from Goodal, the soothing moisturizer purifies and hydrates skin with a blend of natural botanicals. Double-fermented lotus flower extract deeply hydrates while hyaluronic acid helps skin retain moisture. The best part? We don’t need to fly across the world to get our hands on it.

love the smell
Sampled

Loved the fresh smell! I used it at night for a fresh, clean face and during the day when I wasn't wearing makeup and it made my skin look great. Again, it would be nice to know more about HOW and WHEN to use these products.

Not a moisturizer
SampledPurchased

This is essence used often toning and before moisturizing. When I first tried it, I tried to use it like a moisturizer and it made my skin feel tight. After reading the instructions (DUH), I tapped it on and it felt really good. Can't wait to see the results after using it for awhile!!

I have never used moisturizing water before, my skin absorbed it way too quick, it felt great on my forehead and chin(more oily spot) but my cheeks were on a dry side, I think it will be more suitable for oily skin.

I didn’t like this product. Too watery and didn’t see the value.

Love!

I received this moisturizer quite awhile ago and just discovered it in my stash. The sample was tiny, but it lasted through a surprising number of uses.

My usual moisturizer is too thick for the hot summer, but this product is perfect and it absorbs quickly. I might need to pop it in the fridge for an instant pick me up for the next few months.

I can’t live without this one
Sampled

I use this after my toner, but before my sun screen or night cream. It smells good and moisturizes really well, but you still need to lock it in with something creamier. I tried it on its own and my skin felt dry again after a few hours but it compliments my usual moisturizers really well.
I discovered that it works to remove peel of mask residue. A little bit on a cotton ball takes off even my black mask no problem. So much better than scrubbing it off with cleanser and water

Smooth

I like the gel moisturizer . It goes in smooth and delivers. I have oily skin and combination skin in winter. This gel helps keep my skin hydrated in winter and in summer, the gel goes on better than lotions and creams on oily skin and still keeps my skin hydrated

Great Stuff

I have combo normal/oily t-zone. In the winter I get normal t-zone, very dry cheeks. I’ve included this product into my skincare routine and have seen a huge difference in reduction of redness, longer hydration in the day and my skin seems to glow. My routine: cleanse, exfoliate, toner, essence, serum. Will add heavier moisturizer on cheeks if commuting for longer than 2 hours.

I found this product really great and it delivered what it said it did. Even though it is a sample size it gave me lots of uses and didn't leave my skin oil. My skin was soft and moisturized after applying this product to my face.
