Have you ever used beans in skin care? I don’t think I ever have, that is, until this baby came along. This is the Blithe Vital Treatment 8 Nourishing Beans and I’ll be talking about it in today’s post. Let’s get to it.
About Blithe Vital Treatment 8 Nourishing Beans
Essences aren’t really something I have invested in, very much unlike serums and ampoules which we all know I have a lot of. This might even be the first essence in my stash! Can you believe it?
Anyway, this Blithe Vital Treatment 8 Nourishing Beans Essence is described as “a plump and replenishing formula to (help) nourish the skin (1)”. It promises to hydrate and improve skin texture with a blend of 80% bean extracts (2)!

To be honest, I cannot identify from the ingredients list all 8 nourishing beans that are used in this essence. The ones that I was able to identify though, are as follows:
- Soybean – anti-inflammatory, collagen stimulating, potent anti-oxidant scavenging peroxyl radicals, skin lightening, and protection against UV radiation (3)
- Peanut – contains emollient and skin-soothing properties (4)
- Carob – anti-oxidant, anti-microbial, skin brightening (5)
- Lentil – skin-softening, anti-oxidant (6)
While I wasn’t able to identify everything from the list, just seeing these skin-loving ingredients above gets me so excited. The full ingredients list from the product’s Stylekorean listing can be found below.

My Thoughts on the Blithe Vital Treatment Essence
Texture, Scent, and Application
The Blithe Vital Treatment 8 Nourishing Beans Essence has a slightly thick and viscous texture that glides on smoothly upon application. In addition to that, this essence has powerhouse Vitamin E beads packed with all the goodness that your skin needs. Best of all, it is lightweight and while it can get a bit sticky at first, it dries down pretty fast.
Its scent is quite herb-y. It also has that distinct scent of fermented skin care products. This doesn’t really bother me because I am used to these kinds of scent by now, but some people might need some time to get used to it. The scent fades almost immediately anyway so it shouldn’t be too much of a bother.
In terms of effects, this one is up there with the patting splash mask and the cleansing water. I think it is really good. REAAALLY GOOD. My skin feels really plump and hydrated whenever I use this. And when I partner it with the splash mask? Wow. The results are just amazing! I always wake up glowy whenever I use it in my night time routine. However, during day time, it gives that extra dewy finish so oily girls might want to lay off.
I admit, it’s on the pricey side, retailing for $47 or roughly Php 2,449 on Stylekorean. But for the effects, it is actually pretty good and I would consider buying it when mine runs out. But for now, I’ll just keep an eye out for sales. $47 is still a little too steep for me. I think it would be best for those with dry, dehydrated, or combination skin types because it is really hydrating.
So, have you tried beans in skin care?
