This is the best skin essence because it is as lightweight as cosmetic water and as active as a serum.The super-penetrative facial Essence delivers its powerful concentration of Life Plankton™ in the skin and creates a healthy canvas, facilitating your skincare routine.

For millions of years, french pyrenees hot springs have been lauded as a “fountain of youth”. Centuries later, the secret discovered by Biotherm biologists was finally revealed: Life Plankton™, a micro-organism with extraordinary regenerative properties. Today, for the first time, Life Plankton™ is a skincare ingredient infused at the highest concentration in a miracle skin regeneration treatment: the iconic skin essence Life Plankton™ Essence.

Life Plankton™ Essence is the best essence for your face because:

  • It is as actively concentrated as a serum, yet as lightweight as a cosmetic water for maximum skin hydration, absorption and deep-working effectiveness.
  • Created to be the first of your skincare steps, this skin essence has a breakthrough texture that applies like a cosmetic water and transforms into the lightest of serums.
  • This hydrating essence works like a miracle on your skin. In 8 days see and feel a new-born skin.


This is the best skin essence because it is as lightweight as cosmetic water and as active as a serum.The super-penetrative facial Essence delivers its powerful concentration of Life Plankton™ in the skin and creates a healthy canvas, facilitating your skincare routine.

This essence should be a part of the initial phase of your daily skincare routine: use it on a perfectly toned and cleansed skin after your moisturizer. This skin essence can be used in your skincare regimen in the morning and evening.
Shake facial essence well before use. Absorbing in seconds, this hydrating essence leaves the skin refreshed - neither sticky, nor oily or greasy.
1. Apply essence with dabbing movements on the forehead, the cheeks, the chin and the neck.
2. With both hands, tap the skin with your finger tips like falling rain, all over the face and neck.
3. Take about 2 more drops of skin essence on 2 fingers and reapply on some areas of the face, where skin can be particularly dry or need attention. You can draw 8s on your face as per the image on the left.
4. Finish this skincare step with “waves” movements, like when opening a book, to promote the circulation of fluids, from the inside and outwards, and upwards.
Don’t forget the neck

Created to be the 1st step of every beauty routine, this breakthrough texture, that applies like a cosmetic water and transforms into the lightest of serums, works as a miracle Essence. In 8 days see and feel a new-born skin.*

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best This is the best thing i ever had. It' s a miracle for the skin, skin is hydrated and glowing. Now i use it for a one month and i found out that the essence become more and more potent (probably because of shaking and oxygen i think) like when i opened at the begining. I will you use it forever, it is light but very efective, the scent is great and you can feel this specifical power of healing, great. I have a lot of biotherm collections and all i can say all products are far the best i ever tried. So develop further, thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive! I apply a few drops into the palm of my hands, warm up and activate the serum-like treatment and then gently press it into my skin. This has surprisingly helped soften, balance, hydrate and illuminate my skin! Plus, my serum, moisturizer and sunscreen absorb better and I am way less oily at the end of the day. Also, as a man this is the best aftershave treatment I have ever used! It soothes post-shave irratation and plays well with my Biotherm Homme products. This is a great product that not only works well; one bottle lasts me more than 6 months make it a great skincare investment :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing Special I actually find this "Essence" an unnecessary step in my skincare routine. I've been using this for about 9 months now and never noticed a difference in my skin. My skin became very dry over the summer due to air conditioned environments and using this "Essence" did not protect, prevent, or repair the problem.
Date published: 2018-09-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this essence I have a combination skin during summer and dry skin during winter. I use this essence everyday - morning and night. It helps reduce the dryness and redness of my skin. It is also very soothing and when I am out in the sun all day, I use a little extra to help sooth my skin from being in the sun too long. It also helps when my face has irritation from products that I have reaction to. During a hot and humid day, I use this essence and sunscreen which is enough as my morning routine. My skin seems to be healthier. Love this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent essence Loving this product. I’m on my second bottle and will keep repurchasing it again. However, be warned, it has this specific marine scent that disappears in a few seconds, though. The price is reasonable, and it replaced SK-ll essence in my skincare arsenal

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Received old ingredients I bought this because I got information online saying this one has new version which the ingredients changed quite a bit. My skin is sensitive. To got the new version, I especially shopped it at official website instead of the websites I usually shopped. However, I received and used it today, then found a little bit uncomfortable. When I checked ingredients, just knew I got the old version one. Very disappointed, because I already opened it, can not return.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bon produit mais pas recommandé pour peau grasse J ai acheté ce produit car j ai entendu beaucoup de bon commentaire. Et comme je suis une cliente satisfaites des produits Biotherm, j ai pas hésité à l'acheter pour l'essayer. Je suis déçue de l'effet que cela fait sur ma peau. Il rend ma peau très lourd et gras. Et dire que quand j applique uniquement les produits de la gamme Purefect Skin, ma peau rste matifié quasiment toute la journée. Mais ayant rajouté le Life Plankton essence dans ma routine, ma peau est devenue plus épaisse et brille en moins de 2 heures. Donc c est un produit a éviter pour les personnes ayant une peau grasse.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Greasy product I used it day and night for 10 days. It did not work for me. My skin looked the same. It made my face sticky. It clogged pores and made my face itchy. As the result, acnes appeared. Too much fragrance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow ! Ayant un peau à problème (rougeurs et eczéma) j'ai essayé plusieurs produits de différentes marque au cours des années... puis je suis tombé sur votre produits Life Plankton Essence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product completely rebalanced my skin Essence with Life Plankton is an amazing product! I have very oily skin but within a week my skin was rebalanced and the oil was reduced by a lot. My skins texture is soft and smooth. When I used to wear makeup, the oil from my skin would make it Last only a few hours but now it stays all day! I’ve used this product day and night for two weeks now and I love it. I would definitely reccomend this product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fragile cap I am always satisfied with products with Biotherm. However, the cap on the top of the bottle was BROKEN when I receive it... Still can use but not quiet happy about that...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love Biotherm's products!! I always recommend Biotherm Life Plankton Essence! It is one of my favourites besides the Aquasourse Deep Serum. Both moisturize my skin making it feel soft and make my skin shine! I don't go a day without them!!
