Neesya is the first skin radiance specialist brand that promotes a new level of skin clarity, luminosity and even toned.

I had the opportunity to try Neesya Illuminating Essence and I love how it doesn’t feel tacky after the application!

Review Neesya Illuminating Essence - Bottle & Texture

It comes in a plastic bottle where you can pour the essence safely without spilling it. Also, if your bottle is new, they do have a seal sticker between the bottle and the lid. It’s in liquid formula, the texture is not as thick and it has light sandalwood scent. I use 4-5 drops daily in the morning and night after my serum. Initially, I was worried if the texture could leave my skin feeling tacky but my skin absorbs it so well and it doesn’t feel oily at all.

Review Neesya Illuminating Essence - After 4 Weeks

I have run through a course of 4 weeks trying this essence and my skin seems to be clearer each week. Also it is more even toned, radiant and brighter.

Review Neesya Illuminating Essence - After 4 Weeks Close Up

Here is a close up and I do notice that my skin becomes plumper each week. Not because that I’m getting any meatier but my skin becomes so much more hydrated. As much as I love this essence, I did broke out on Week 3 on my chin area and nose bridge. Some acne marks are disappearing throughout using this essence, you can see it on my cheeks.

This is the close up comparison of before and after 4 weeks.

Ingredients listing

Water, Butylene Glycol, Sodium PCA, Glycerin, Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract, Sodium Lactate, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, C12-15 Pareth-12, Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin, Actinidia Polygama Fruit Extract, Butylene Glycol, Bisabolol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Disodium EDTA, Aloe Barbadensis leaf Juice, Maltodextrin, Fragrance, Propylene Glycol, Saccharomyces/Opal/Mother Of Pearl/Turquoise/Diamond Ferment Lysate Filtrate.


Although this essence doesn’t bring drastic changes but it follows the harmony of my skin to improve it. My skin did improve from the acne marks and even out my skin tone. I love applying this essence because it doesn’t feel oily or tacky at all! Even so, do bare in mind that it doesn’t come with any oil-controlling properties. This would also go great for dry skin types since it kept my skin hydrated so well. Just the backlash would be the breakout on Week 3. Plus point that this essence is Paraben and colorant free! I would think that they could improve on the packaging because the plastic bottle may seem a little flimsy.
