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.
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.
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.

Product does not sink into my skin

I love Esse... I use many of their products but Ive battled to find a moisturiser in their range that does not leave a film on my skin. Even this light moisturiser does not sink in properly. I apply it and once it has dried if I put foundation over it, the moisturiser starts peeling off in flakes. I use the eye and lip cream and thats fine. The toner is divine too. Im trying their probiotic defense moisturiser now in the hope that the high price means it will sink in... and make me look 18 ;-) But their regular moisturiser range does not suit my skin at all.

Got a sample of this with one of my previous orders and like it a lot. Will definitely buy this as soon as my current and very expensive (from a US based network marketing company) moisturiser is finished. I actually think this is a far superior product at a fraction of the price.

This is a great moisturiser. The texture is great and it spreads well. You don have to use too much of this product. The packaging is ok but I feel like it would do better in a pump bottle. Ive got very fair, oily, acne and hormonal cystic acne prone skin. I feel like this moisturiser didn help with the oiliness of my skin. After application my skin looks matt, but a couple of hours later my t-zone is terribly oily. It performs well on the chest and neck area. It does moisturise well and leaves the skin looking very soft and fresh (for a couple of hours). For my type of skin I don think this product is well suited. Ive had better luck using Esses Omega Light Moisturiser.
I agree with the above reviews! It does exactly what it states in the description.
I agree with the above reviews! It does exactly what it states in the description. It really creates a balance in your skin, doesnt leave any greasy residue and absorbs wonderfully. The only thing I would change is having to stick my fingers into the jar to get the cream. A tube where you could squeeze it out would be great! Otherwise I give it a 5* rating.
I have skin that scars easily and this cream helps to alleviate darkened blemishes on my skin.

Highly recommended!! I have terribly oily skin, used to look like one who applied petroleum jelly on my face by 11am every day, winter or summer.

I'm in my mid twenties but have fairly oily skin and I have to say that this cream has really done the trick.
