Why Primera Miracle Seed Essence?

It’s no wonder that this essence is prized by those in the know.

Primera Miracle Seed Essence is a multi-award-winning essence that has a highly effective yet clean ingredient list. Having an uncomplicated ingredient list means higher levels of active ingredients.

The Primera Miracle Seed Essence is loaded with ingredients that enhance the skin’s function and appearance. Unlike other essences, toners and serums, water is not the main ingredient here. The star of the show and the principle ingredient is Lotus Seed Extract. You’ll also find an all-star supporting cast, including  Niacinamide, Adenosine, Sodium Hyaluronate and Saccharomyces Ferment. These actives have been included at the right concentration to deliver results.

This is the product you don’t know you need until you try it.

Key ingredients

Lotus Seed Extract is rich in skin-healthy Linoleic Acid and Amino Acids. They act as moisturising elements for the skin and fortify its barrier.  This enables your skin to better protect itself from pollution, irritants and microbes, as well as enabling skin to maintain hydration.

Lotus Seed Extract is also high in antioxidants, specifically flavonoids and polyphenols. These  help protect the skin by counter-acting free radicals and preventing damage to the skin’s collagen and elastin. Every day our skin is assaulted by free radicals and antioxidants help prevent premature skin ageing.

The Primera Miracle Seed Essence also contains other proven actives.

Niacinamide is a super hero ingredient in skin care. It’s a versatile anti-ager that can improve almost every skin concern. Not only is it an antioxidant in its own right, it calms irritation and redness, strengthens the skin barrier, reduces excess oil production, minimises large pores, improves uneven tone and hyperpigmentation,  dimishes dullness and softens fine lines.

Adenosine is known for its anti-wrinkle benefits and ability to energise the skin’s top layer, making it appear smoother and younger.

Adenosine is a proven anti-wrinkle ingredient. Even a very low percentage has been shown to be particularly effective at targeting wrinkles, even deeper ones. It is a highly soothing and restoring ingredient. And being naturally present in the skin, it suits all skin types.

Saccharomyces Ferment gently refines the skin and boosts hydration. It’s made from fermenting and filtering yeast. Fermentation breaks down molecules and creates a concentrated bioavailable ingredient that can penetrate the dermis.  This makes it rich in vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic acids.  It works at the cellular level, not just the surface of the skin. Saccharomyces Ferment will soothe, hydrate, brighten and restore glow to the skin. You can find out more about this post-biotic ingredient in our blog article Probiotics in Skin Care.

Saccharomyces Ferment  is similar in its effects to Galactomyches Ferment, which is found in the SK-II Facial  Treatment Essence, however it’s produced in a way that creates a higher concentration of actives.

Sodium Hyaluronate is a form of Hyaluronic Acid with a smaller in molecular size so that it can enter the deeper layers of the skin. It attracts moisture and reduces inflammation. Sodium Hyaluronate is an excellent ingredient for reducing dryness, plumping the skin and smoothing the look of wrinkles.

Even BTY ALY said she found it more effective than the famous, and more expensive SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, that everybody praises.


  • Skin is soothed and softened.
  • Skin is hydrated and maintains a better oil to water balance.
  • Skin is better able to fight free radicals
  • Texture and tone are gently refined in time.
  • Skin appears more radiant and youthful.
  • Fine lines and pores appear less visible.

Best for

Suitable for dry, normal, combination and oily skin types.

Tip: Simply use it like you would a toner or apply it after your toner if you’re following the Korean 10-step skin care routine. Use a cotton pad of dispense into the palm of your hand and pat into the skin.

Perfect pairs

The Primera Miracle Seed Essence works with just about anything else in your skin care routine. This essence absorbs easily and adds hydration without leaving a trace of stickiness or ickiness. Apply the essence and then follow with the rest of your skin care products. The essence can be used morning or evening — or, if you can’t get enough, morning and evening.

For anti-ageing results we like pairing this with the Medik8 Night Ritual Vitamin A cream at night.

If you’re looking to supercharge your skin’s hydration for that dewy, plumped appearance, use with the Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream and follow with the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask Ex or the Laneige Cica Sleeping Mask at night.

Good to know

This is the new 160ml version of the essence that comes in a luxury glass bottle rather than a plastic one.

This essence has a light watery texture that makes it able to easily penetrate the skin and impart its benefits.

You’ll find no fragrance or essential oils to irritate or sensitise the skin.

Primera products are free of parabens, animal derivatives, silicones, mineral oil, synthetic dyes and artificial fragrances.

Amorepacific says it does not test on animals other than where local laws require it.

Primera Miracle Seed Essence Review

This is one of the best essences I’ve ever tried. It is so gentle and literally makes your skin light up with hydration, but it isn’t greasy or oddly textured. No off-putting fragrance either.


I loved this product. It was a step in my skin care routine I didn’t think I needed! It left my skin looking super healthy and dewy. Definitely recommend.


How to use

After cleansing, apply Primera Miracle Seed Essence to a cotton pad and gently sweep across the face in upward strokes several times to ensure maximum absorption.

Applying the appropriate amount, 2.5ml, will ensure you see results.

If applying without a cotton pad, use the seven-skin method of layering the essence. Pat delicately to aid absorption after each application.

If you’re following the Korean 10-step skin care routine, apply after your  toner.

1 review for Primera Miracle Seed Essence

  1. Anna Marie

    This is a brilliant essence to achieve a clearer, brighter, softer and more hydrated complexion. I also found it soothing, repairing and anti-ageing. It contains a stellar cast of ingredients including lotus seed extract, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, adenosine and saccharomyces ferment filtrate (a similar ferment to the one found in the famous SK-II Facial Treatment Essence). I find it easiest to pat it into the skin with your hands. To maximise the hydrating effects, apply in 2-3 layers. I like that this essence is calming and nourishing, and doesn’t use essential oils or other irritating ingredients. The texture is light and liquid, yet very hydrating. This essence strengthens the skin barrier to help your skin better retain moisture, fights environmental damage and supports repair and regeneration. It comes in a glass bottle to better protect the natural ingredients. This essence has a way of making itself indispensable. It imparts clarity, glow and suppleness. And once you use it, you really can’t go back.
