[REVIEW] Mamonde First Energy Essence Honeysuckle

Mamonde First Energy Essence Honeysuckle Review:

Mamonde has been a brand that is enjoying increasing popularity lately and I have been loving this brand ever since I tried their famous Rose Water Toner which I have gone through three bottles and I am still currently using it. This First Energy Essence was introduced after the toner and is another product that has been highly raved by many. Since Mamonde is a skincare brand which I have high expectations for, I decided to give it a try as I have yet to incorporate any first essences into my skincare routine.


+ A firming essence for a more radiant and resilient complexion.

+ Made with honeysuckle flower essence and fermented vinegar, First Energy Essence by Mamonde increases luminosity of the skin for a clearer, brighter complexion.

+ It helps define facial contours by improving resilience and plumping the skin for a firmer look.

Mamonde First Energy Essence Honeysuckle Review:

The essence came in a plastic bottle in an orange gradient with floral designs at the bottom. The packaging is very simple yet pretty. The bottle is sturdy so you don’t have to worry about dropping the bottle.

A quick look at the ingredient list shows that this first essence is packed with goodness. Main ingredients consist of honeysuckle, niacinamide and adenosine. Honeysuckle was harvested from the honeysuckle flower that was fermented for 12 months and is a rich source of antioxidants and protects the skin from environmental aggressors.

Niacinamide is known for providing brightening properties while adenosine helps in cell renewal and regeneration.

Another interesting ingredient is Lactobacillus Ferment which is used to compliment the fermentation of honeysuckle. Lactobacillus is essentially a good bacteria that helps to strengthen the skin barrier as well as enhance the effectiveness of anti-aging and skin firming properties. Overall, the ingredients are relatively safe.

Mamonde First Energy Essence Honeysuckle Review

The essence is a clear watery liquid and has natural floral scent which I liked. It is very lightweight, refreshing and absorbs quickly and this makes it suitable for all skin types. I used it in the first step of my skincare, right after cleansing my face and before applying my Mamonde Rose Water Toner.

First essences are usually supposed to help boost the efficacy of the products applied in the later part of the skincare routine which is why it has to be applied at the front. I personally like to pour an appropriate amount onto my palms and pat it into my face instead of pouring it onto a cotton pad to reduce wastage.

Upon application, my skin indeed felt more supple. Since it absorbs very quickly and does not leave any sticky feeling behind, I also use it in the day time to provide some hydration for my skin before I apply makeup and it makes the application so much easier and smoother.

After using it daily for a week, I did notice that my skin has become slightly brighter and it was probably because of the Niacinamide. There was an overall improvement in skin complexion as my skin was noticeably calmer and it did look clearer and more plump.

However, my only gripe with this product is that it did not feel very hydrating but I can overlook that point as this is only the first step of my skincare routine and I will be applying more hydrating serums or essences later.

Overall, it is a great product to incorporate into your skincare routine as it delivers many benefits and I would definitely be repurchasing this. If you are looking to try a first essence, I will strongly recommend this!
