Best and Worst Essence Products

Essence is one of, if not the least expensive brand available on the market. Most products range from about $1 to $5. There are some amazing gems hidden in this brand, and there are some duds as well. The packaging may be cheap, but some of the products are just as good as some high end products. Essence is available at Ulta and essence.com
