The texture of this emulsion is not as watery as I expected an emulsion to be. I think that it is quite thick and does not absorb easily. Emulsions are usually recommended for people with combination to oily skin, but I find that the Kose Sekkisei emulsion is quite oily upon application and my face will remain oily and a bit sticky for a few minutes before it starts to absorb. I will not recommend this Sekkisei emulsion for people with oily skin as the stickiness and oiliness might feel uncomfortable.
When it does absorb after a while, it does hydrate well. But I would advise against using too much as some people have complained of black/whiteheads, so I usually use lesser than a full pump.
I do not like this emulsion too much as I prefer my moisturisers to absorb quickly. Usually I apply serums before my moisturiser and if the moisturiser does not absorb well, it would make me feel like there is a layer of oil on my face, which I dislike. Also, if I use this emulsion after using a sheet mask, the mask essence plus the emulsion on my skin makes it feel very thick and sticky.
All in all, I think there are better moisturisers out there. There is little whitening benefits from the emsulsion as well, I think the Sekkisei Lotion is a better product to purchase.
