Please Note: This product includes extremely safe, food-grade preservatives: Potassium Sorbate, Benzyl Alcohol and Dehydroacetic Acid. The ECOCERT organic logo means that 95% of the total ingredients are of natural origin.
The concern with hydrogenated oils is that there is the possibility of generating trans-fats. The hydrogenated oils in Esse products are processed at low temperatures, in carefully controlled conditions, to avoid trans-fats in the final products.
Please Note: The ascorbyl palmitate that may be used in this Esse product is a derivative of ascorbic acid and palmitic acid - the palmitic acid is isolated from either coconut, rape seed or palm oil. Esse have insured to use a supplier that has RSPO certification for times where palm oil is used in their products.

Love this cream as it does not leave my skin feeling oily but is moisturised enough not to leave it wanting. I use the whole esse range

Started using this 3 days ago and real quality product. Definitely worth the price as it is a 50 ml compared to other premium brands out in the marketplace which normally comes in sizes of only 30 ml.
Excellent product, but no longer affordable

I use all Esse products for my face and love them all. This cream is especially wonderful: the smell, the texture, the feel on your skin, the difference it makes overnight is absolutely noticeable. I ordered one in February for R314. The last one cost me R445. That is a 40% price increase. Unfortunately no longer affordable for me.

Am happy with this. It lasts long. Works well on combination skin. Is easily absorbed.
LOVE the Esse range!

I have been using the cream cleanser, toner and Deep Moisturiser for a few months now and absolutely love everything about it. It smells great and fresh and leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean.

Works really well on my combination skin with no shiny appearance.
Good product, but a little smelly

I bought this to replace my usual Clarins product, and I really like it. Absorbs fast and leaves my skin feeling good. I use the excellent Esse Refining Cleanser, which smells so good - kind of lemony - but Im not too keen on the smell of this moisturiser: kind of chemical, but in a earthy way.

I love everything about this product. The smell is beautiful and I am not usually a fan of scented skin products. I have been using it for about 2 weeks and have received a few compliments on my skin. I would definitely recommend this product.

Love Esses products. This moisturiser took some getting used to, but it is now my favourite!
My new favourite range

I have just discovered Esse. So far the best skincare products Ive used. I love this moisturiser. Perfect for combination skin. I kept getting compliments on my skin after I started using this. Love that it doesn have a sickly sweet smell, like some other organic products!

The Esse Range is just amazing!
Such a soft, delicate textured moisturiser and not oily or sticky. I have used this product for a while and will carry on doing so.
Love the Esse range.
Love the Esse range. Moisturizer absorbs well into skin without leaving an oily residue. Use this product during summer season and the Rich moisturizer during Winter.
I have a sensitive oily skin, and although this cream is very mattifying, it left my skin feeling tight and not nourished enough.

Best moisturiser for combination skin.
Best moisturiser for combination skin. Deep moisturisation yet skin doesn become shiny midday even on hot days.
An excellent product - works extremely well over the serum as said.
An excellent product - works extremely well over the serum as said. I've only used occasionally during the day, but worked well - I wish they did an SPR moisturiser.
Great accompaniment to an evening skincare routine.
Great accompaniment to an evening skincare routine. This cream smells so divine and is nourishing to a well cleansed oily/combination skin type.
Fab product, absorbs easily and leaves your skin glowing.
Fab product, absorbs easily and leaves your skin glowing. Slight break-out on day three of using the moisturiser, but my skin cleared straight away and has never looked this good!
Clever packaging too.
