I use the MISSHA Super Aqua Ultra Waterful Control Emulsion (second from the left) on a regular basis every other day after my face serum. I prompt to the daily usage in cold winter months when my skin appreciates the Control Emulsion much more than during any other seasons.
Directions from the manufacturer:
After serum, apply onto skin and lightly pat to aid absorption.
Ultra nourishing emulsion balances moisture levels of skin and prevents dehydration.

I typically purchase the Super Aqua Ultra Waterful Control Emulsion in a set with the Active Toner and a Cream from the same series my MISSHA. The Control Emulsion has very rich creamy texture when it comes out of the bottle but once applied on the skin it feels more like a thick gel. Packaging of this emulsion feels and looks luxurious. The bottle is made out of thick deep blue colored glass and it feels heavy and sturdy in the hands. Bottle contains 130 ml of emulsion.
As for the usage, 2 pumps are enough to cover my entire face. An existing pump oh the top of the bottle is a huge bonus for me. It is very easy apply the emulsion to my face. It is very slippery in the beginning but sinks entirely into the skin within a minute.
Same as with the toner and the cream, the Control Emulsion has an extremely pleasant smell. It does a good job at moisturizing my skin and I do think that in the summery or in a very humid climate this emulsion can actually replace the cream if applied more generously than what I'm used to.
+ Meets it's claims, good moisturizer
+ Lovely fresh fragrance
+ Luxurious packaging
+ Perfect consistency for applying this product with bare hands
+ Economic use due to the pump
+ Suitable for all the skin types
- Single bottle price is quite high. Better to go for a set if you would use it on the daily basis together with the other products.
- Less volume compared to the toner from the same series
- Frequently skipping this step because sometimes my skin feels like adding it to my regimen is too much.
