Mizon Water Volume Ex First Essence is the hydrating Toner Essence and can be used for 7 skin method. By 7 skin method I mean to say that any “hydrating toner” or a “First Essence” or a “toner essence” can be layered 7 times on skin by patting little quantity each time . This method actually replaces the usage of additional essence or a serum and provides deep hydration and moisturization to skin.
Mizon Water Volume Ex First Essence claims to address issue of skin dryness from inside through their “Hydra Tox Technology” which activates the natural moisturizing factor to improve the moisture barrier. In simple words, remove the root cause of dryness by penetrating into the skin and by strengthening skin’s moisture barrier! 😎💦
Mizon Water Volume Ex First Essence is suitable for all skin types. Even people with Oily skin can use it, since it’s more focussed on hydration rather than moisturisation.
Not Suitable for:
Mizon Water Volume Ex First Essence might not be suitable for anyone allergic to any of its ingredients.
Ingredients List and CosDNA Analysis:
Mizon Water Volume Ex First Essence consists of many ingredients that I have never heard of! Mizon every time surprises me with its ingredients list, I am rather baffled than amused! Why I am baffled this time? Because the marketed ingredients are nowhere seen on top of the list; for example, the ingredients “snow Algae Extract” and “lactic acid” which should have been at the top are actually at bottom of the list, but the good thing is that all the ingredients are safe.
From Cosdna Analysis, I have found only 2 base ingredients ( Triethanol amine and Butylene Glycol ) that could irritate acne prone skin, but the chances are very rare.
How to use:
Mizon Water Volume Ex First Essence is very much suitable for using it at the toner step. The best way of application is patting onto skin rather than swiping with cotton pad. Also, occasionally this can be used with DIY sheet Mask for additional hydration.
Mizon Water Volume Ex First Essence can be used Day and Night.

Price: I purchased Mizon Water Volume Ex First Essence from Amazon.in! for $28 !! Man!! what was I thinking!!
Mizon Water Volume Ex First Essence is very watery but does posses a slippery texture!! It has a mild fragrance and I will describe it as a fresh earthy floral!!
Mizon Water Volume Ex First Essence gets absorbed quickly and is non sticky!! This makes it very suitable for 7 skin method!!
Mizon Water Volume Ex First Essence is a good toner or a first essence. I did enjoy using it but nothing ground breaking!! 😑 So, far from all the Mizon Products I have used Mizon Snail Ampoule has been best! The review I am giving is after emptying the products. So, these are my final thoughts.
- Hydrates Well.
- Soothes Skin.
- Suitable for all skin types.
- Non Sticky.
- Works well for 7 skin method.
- Good mild Fragrance.
- Didn’t irritate my dry sensitive skin.
- Travel Friendly.
- Availability is a problem.
- It is not cost effective! Why pay more just to seek hydration? Better options are easily available for cheaper price!
- Ingredients are misleading! (That’s my opinion and it could be subjective!!). I mean so many ingredients just to aid hydration? and what’s the Lactic acid doing at bottom? Snow Algae Extract is also at bottom!!
Do I recommend it? Not really!! Because there are better options but if you have the easy access to the product and you have normal to Oily Skin, it can be given a try!
Will I repurchase? Nah!! I will not!
I did enjoy this product but it’s not my favourite one! The price I paid just to get hydration, that’s bothering me a lot, because better and functional products are available for the same or even cheaper price!! So, I gave only 3 star! The only thing that makes me happy is that it didn’t react on my skin.
So, have you tried? Or at least heard about this product? 😑
