(15 customer reviews)


What is it?

A pre-serum containing a powerful probiotic complex to balance the skin’s microflora, which in turn increase the good bacteria balance of the skin.

What it does:

1st Essence is the essential first step to achieving extremely healthy skin in our modern world.

Living in the city is a major challenge for our skin. Every day ‘silent enemies’ like exhaust fumes, UV rays and air conditioning, are damaging our skin without us realising it.

And even lesser known is the damage that continuous exposure to Blue Light or High Energy Visible Light (HEV) emitted from mobile phones, computers and similar electrical device is having on our skin, as well as our eyes.

Wavelengths emitted by the blue light penetrate the epidermis deeper than UV radiations does, causing oxidative stress to skin cells and leading to the formation of free radicals. As a result, cell membranes are destroyed, the extracellular matrix of the dermis is degraded, creating a hardening of its support fibres and inhibiting the production of new collagen.

Over time, wrinkles appear, the complexion becomes duller, less homogeneous and hyperpigmentation and redness end up coming out.

Ist Essence Defence Active Booster stimulates the skin’s innate capacity to resist, regenerate, oxygenate and become strengthened from within.



1st Essence is the essential first step to achieving an extremely healthy skin as it contains a powerful probiotic complex to balance the skins micro flora, and in turn increase the good bacteria balance of the skin.

It also contains an anti pollution complex to reduce skin damage, as well as Niacinimide and Glycolipids to boost the immunity of the cells and even skin tone.

It is a must-have for all skin types!

    This is a new product for me, although I’ve used Germaine de Cappucini products for years. I’ve been using this every day for a week and can see and feel the difference – excellent!

    Comes in a pipette style so really easy to use and has a really lovely light smell to it. I use this underneath my moisturiser, my skin has felt so much more hydrated recently – great to use in the winter!

    I like the Essence a lot. I have been using it underneath my moisturiser and it seems to be doing exactly what it says on the tin. Perfect for me packed full of antioxidant protection as I work a lot in the city.

    This is a great product. Firstly the packaging is funky and different. I love the mirrored box, perfect for those moments where you cant find your mirror in your handbag!! This is a serum to protect your skin from the outside elements and air pollution. It works on the outer layers of your skin to keep it looking radiant and natural. It feels so smooth on the skin, no sticky or slimy. They call it liquid silk …. I agree. It also takes away extra shine from your skin and makes a great base for makeup too. It smells lush too, very natural perfume. It has different nut and fruit oils in it. I love it and use it daily and I take it with me in a handbag just incase I need a mid day boost. I highly recommend this product.

    Very silky serum that has speed absorption which was enough to hydrate my skin. Lovely smell of this serum and felt after a few days of using it my skin was very hydrated. Also noticed the redness on my cheeks reduced dramatically.

  14. CHRISTINA (verified owner)

    A must serum in my skin care routine

  15. Amy W. (verified owner)

    I have been looking for a serum to make my skin much happier and this was the product to do it.
