Love the smell and texture14/11/2019, By KirstenIt's lovely and gentle and leaves my skin feeling great, also smells amazing but sadly doesn't do a good job with taking off mascara (hey gorgeous brand). Will revert to the gel cleanser for this reason.12/10/2019, By Este-mariDoes not dry out my skin and removes makeup easily. One of my favorites!20/08/2019, By MinetteLove using this product as it leaves my sensitive skin moisturized and clean.07/07/2019, By KayAmazing cleanser, cleared my skin and gave a smooth and healthy glow in 1 week of using it. My skin has never felt so amazing. Has also reduced my pore size, reduced redness and helped with blackheads.05/07/2019, By AdeleI have very dry skin and this cleanser is great - cleanses nicely and even removes make-up without drying out your skin.04/07/2019, By DianeHave been using this product for two years and would not swap. It leaves my sensitive skin moisturized and clean. Pity it’s getting very pricey.15/04/2019, By AshleighI love this cleanser. my skin feels clean and really soft after using it.07/04/2019, By DEBRAThis is my second lot. Cleans without drying out skin. And I'm happy that it's vegan.25/03/2019, By LanéAmazing mint smell like toothpaste!! Skin feels fresh and clean.22/02/2019, By AniqueThis really is good for dry and sensitive skin. It cleanses, nourishes and calms. I absolutely love it.02/01/2019, By GinaGreat moisturizing cleanser to follow on from the gel or for when you don’t have makeup to remove.10/12/2018, By RianaI got this as a sample, so I tried it out. It felt good while applying it, but then it became "tacky" moments later. It washed off well with water, and then my skin felt good. BUT the directions for use really confuses me. On the sample it says, "Gently press into skin of face, neck and décolleté morning and evening after cleansing and toning." What is the use of a cleanser if (according to these instructions) one has to apply it AFTER first having cleansed and toned one's skin?? Then it would mean cleaning an already-cleaned skin ... And then what? Should a cleanser not be used to loosen impurities and then be either wiped or rinsed off? But there are no further instructions, which gives the impression that it has to be left on (especially since skin is supposed to be toned first). If those instructions are followed, it looks like it's used as a moisturizer, but if not washed / wiped off, the tackiness (which I felt moments after having applied it) may remain ... Reading all the great reviews, I'm wondering if perhaps the sample I got, accidentally has incorrect information printed on it. Because it does not make sense for me.07/10/2018, By ChantalI am not a fan of cream cleansers, but tried this sample and am SOLD! So silky and fragrant - I could massage my face all day..17/09/2018, By LGreat cleanser and gentle on my skin. Love the Esse range.08/06/2018, By CalliI adore this range! The cleanser is divine and smells absolutely amazing. You cannot go wrong here! It's gentle, and removes all make-up so easily. It also doesn't burn if you get it in your eyes.22/05/2018, By KateI agree with all of the other comments: nothing does it for my skin like the Esse cream cleanser, I cannot go without it! Prefer the cream cleanser to the gel cleanser. The fragrance is just incredible too.14/05/2018, By Kristi-JadeThis product is amazing. I originally ordered the trial pack for Dry Skin, loved the product so much I ordered the big size. Smells amazing and takes make-up off beautifully. Very happy!27/03/2018, By AnneLove the Esse skincare products! This cleanser is gentle yet effective, does not leave my skin as dry as a lot of other cleansers do.20/02/2018, By SueMy favourite cleanser! Lovely scent too. Bonus - it comes in a bottle so I reuse and refill with hand soap from Rain (retail store).19/02/2018, By BonnieLovely product that is perfect for dry skin.04/12/2017, By ElaineGreat cleanser! I like to use it during winter when my skin feel a bit dry. It makes my skin feel soft and moisturised, and not dry. It's very gentle on my sensitive skin.
When I use this cleanser in warmer weather it can feel a bit too rich for my combination / oily skin, so then I switch to Victorian Garden Lavender cleanser.15/11/2017, By GennaThis is the ONLY cleanser I have been using for about 4 years, and the ONLY one I will ever use!
I absolutely love it24/10/2017, By MeganI'm obsessed with this cleanser. It is so lovely - has a medicinal/ spa treatment smell to it which is nice. It is very gentle, so if you have very dry skin (like I do) you would need something a little more moisturizing.
The only down side to this product is that the 100ml bottle only lasts a little over a month (if you're using one pump, twice a day), which means it is quite expensive to use & repurchase so often.
I'll probably switch to a more cost effective product for my next order.07/06/2017, By LeatitiaLove this cleanser. Been struggling recently with dry skin due to the cold weather, and this cleanser is fantastic. Feel hydrated and pampered.02/06/2017, By ElsabeThough the gel cleanser is better for removing make up. This is great for the winter when your skin needs a bit more pampering and moisture. Skin still feels clean after the wash even though it's creamy.30/05/2017, By Yu-tingI had breakouts when I was trying different brands, looking for cruelty-free and organic products until I started using Esse which really helped to clear my skin again27/02/2017, By NadiaFeels really gentle on my problem skin, while successfully cleansing. Smell is pleasant and gentle25/01/2017, By LucindaI love this product, I have sensitive skin and it does not irritate my skin at all.09/07/2016, By ReneeI love this product! It has the perfect texture and the most uplifting smell.17/12/2015, By TaniaI have mature skin that tends to be on the dry side, so I love that this cleanser works gently but effectively to remove all dirt, while managing to leave my skin feeling fresh and hydrated because of the natural oils.17/11/2015, By DianeLove everything about it. It leaves my skin soft without being oily or dry.31/08/2015, By RitaIve been using this product for 4 Years already. Can think of ever changing! Cleans. No reaction. Lasts me about 2 months a bottle.07/01/2015, By YaelThis cleanser is wonderful. So far the best organic product for my skin. Its creamy without being drying. My skin feels great with it. Lovely scent as well: not overly sweet smelling.19/11/2014, By KarenI LOVE this product. It smells good and is gentle.13/11/2014, By AneesaI dropped my Clarins Cleansing Cream for this after they reformulated it and added tons of unnecessary fragrance. Its light and non-greasy and removes light makeup and dirt all in one go. No need to go berserk and use harsh make-up removers. Just take a few drops, apply to damp skin and gently massage into a light lather. I usually concentrate on the areas my makeup is the heaviest. The blusher and
lipstick just slides off!07/10/2011, By deshantaI used this cleanser when I first started using organic/natural skin care products. It was a great way to wean my skin off the harsh chemical-ridden cleansers I used in the past. I moved on to the Esse gel cleanser as my skin is combination/oily.21/09/2011, By AnnI use this with the Facial Cotton wool pads and my skin is left feeling so cleansed without feeling dry like many of the soapy cleansers leave it feeling! Great product!04/09/2011, By MarietaWithin a week of using this product my skin improved noticably! It helped clear up some skin impurities and leaves my skin feeling soft and clean. Definately a strong recommendation from my side!01/09/2011, By AlexaThis is one of the best cleansers I have ever used - my skin feels soft afterwards, but indubitably clean. Totally recommended.
