Primera Miracle Seed Essence is a cult favourite essence that fortifies the skin, restores radiance and fights wrinkles.
It’s packed with skin essential nutrients that work with proven actives to deeply hydrate the skin, brighten the complexion and protect against free radicals.
The essence works to improve the skin’s function and appearance.
Liah Yoo calls the the Primera Miracle Seed Essence “amazing”. She loves the hydration it provides, the simplicity of the ingredients and the lack of irritants. Given Liah’s beautiful skin, she might be on to something here.
Why Primera Miracle Seed Essence?
This is a multi-award-winning essence that’s loaded with ingredients to enhance the skin’s function and appearance.
Unlike other essences, water is not the main ingredient here. The stars of the show are Lotus Seed Extract, Niacinamide, Adenosine, Vitamin C and Xylitylglucoside.
This is the product you don’t know you need until you try it.
Primera Miracle Seed Essence ingredients
The key ingredients are:
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.
Niacinamide 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, diminishes 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. Even at a very low percentage, it’s been shown to improve wrinkles.
Ethyl Ascorbic Ether is a stable form of Vitamin C. In skin care, Vitamin C is recognised as a superstar ingredients as it’s a potent antioxidant, collagen booster and skin brightener.
Xylitylglucoside increases moisture in the skin by increasing natural moisturising factors (NMFS), such as Hyaluronic Acid and Chondroitin Sulfate. It also reduces moisture loss by improving the skin barrier through increased synthesis of lipids (ceramides and cholesterol) and proteins (collagen and elastin).
- Skin is soothed, softened and hydrated.

- Texture and tone are gently refined in time.

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.
