Separate the lotion and essence foil pouches before use. 1 lotion Empty contents of pouch onto cotton pad and gently wipe pad over face. Wipe two or three times for best results. 2 essence Empty half of the contents of pouch into palm and smooth over face and neck while lightly massaging with fingertips. Place the remaining formulation from the pouch into your palm and smooth over areas of special concern such as around eyes, cheeks, and mouth.
