86 out of 87 people would recommend this product21/04/2021, By TayHighly priced product that is worth the penny, did not mind paying the price, looked forward to each purchase of product to get me a step closer to my free gift, for the premium priced paid for this product range, you would think customer service is top notch, 3 weeks later and still no free gift or follow up from their dept. Will be moving over to a skin care brand that takes customer service to heart.09/04/2021, By SueI would definitely recommend to a friend. I do not have oily skin but love the smell and ease of using a gel cleanser. My skin always feels fresh, clean and glowing06/03/2021, By LynnePerfect for oily skin! Leaves your face feeling super clean and fresh13/01/2021, By PravikaThis is my favourite facewash. It's light and doesn't foam as well as other products, but it does the job well without leaving my face feeling dry. I have combination skin and tried the traveller pack with sample sizes of the products before settling on this one. I won't buy anything else after finding this one. I use this with a few other products from the Esse range and my skin is much happier than it used to be.21/12/2020, By AqeelaCleans thoroughly without leaving my skin feel dry. It's not as foaming as I thought it would be but it is gentle and great for my sensitive skin.15/12/2020, By ToniaI have used this cleanser for 10 years....I always go back to it. I am 59, still have combination skin after menopause. It cleans thoroughly without causing dryness.17/11/2020, By AndyMy skin feels way less gunky and dry after using this product. Definitely worth the money!07/08/2020, By MountainCleaning14/07/2020, By TaniaLove Esse products. This product makes your skin feel clean and fresh.10/07/2020, By MelissaThis product provides value for money for the amount of time that it lasts. It smells & feels amazing however, I didn't notice any memorable results.27/06/2020, By KLovely cleanser.. so fresh and effective for cleaning makeup23/06/2020, By FafIt's a really lovely cleanser that smells amazing. Found that it seemed to stop working as well after 2 months. Wanted to support local brands however over R400 for a cleanser which LITERALLY stays on your fave for no more than 1minute then gets washed off is slightly excessive.22/06/2020, By MegThis brand is sooo great! And the products last forever and a day! My skin feels fresh, clean and healthy every time I use Esse.20/06/2020, By MelissaAmazing cleanser.03/06/2020, By MelOne of the best cleansers out there!30/05/2020, By DominiqueI’ve just recently started using Esse products. I was drawn to them after my doctor recommended I start taking oral probiotics regularly to help clear my acne. Seeing that the products have probiotics in them, I thought I’d give it a try. I bought the tester kit first, and gauged which products for my skin type worked best. I really like the gel cleanser, it foams lightly, and doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight after!23/05/2020, By First bornSofter skin22/04/2020, By CandyBest in the range17/04/2020, By LarvanI love this cleanser. It's smells great, minty with a hint of tea tree. The pump bottle works well and can be repurposed easily. Would say it might be a little strong for someone with combination skin, I sometimes find it a little too drying. But I mainly use it for removing makeup which it does well.17/04/2020, By LuanneGreat ingredients, very expensive25/02/2020, By Sasha AndersonLove this Esse Gel Cleanser. Smells delicious. Leaves skin feeling clean, fresh and natural without drying or tightening. I recommend purchasing the larger size even though a little goes a long way.11/02/2020, By ConcernedCleans well09/02/2020, By CasicaseI love this product . On my sixth bottle and my skin is radiant .02/02/2020, By JanytaI love this product. It is amazing.
The only negative is the price but if you can afford it, it's worth it.19/01/2020, By AidWow06/01/2020, By HelperTop cleaner11/12/2019, By GretchLove the esse range. Feel my skin has really improved while using it10/12/2019, By JessicaThis is my second bottle. I still don't like the smell, but it cleanses really well and foams nicely with my Foreo face brush.07/12/2019, By JessicaI am on my second bottle, I still hate the smell of it, but best for my skin. Less breakouts and whiteheads.10/11/2019, By NancyLove the gel cleanser. Its been good too me.06/10/2019, By AngeliqueThis face wash has beautiful peppermint smell, it really made my skin feel like it came back to life. I miss treated my skin for alittle and it really has helped rehydrate my skin.16/09/2019, By JessicaI was heartbroken when I realised my favourite (and VERY expensive) salon grade cleanser was laced with parabens and some other frowned-upon ingredients. I took a leap and bought this cleanser, as I was specifically looking for a safe gel cleanser. I am not disappointed and am enjoying the product. Would buy again.16/07/2019, By BronAbsolutely loving the gentleness of this product. Leaves me feeling fresh!09/07/2019, By KirstinWonderful foaming gel cleanser which is calming on my sensitive skin. I love that it's in glass and doesn't test on animals.
Personally I prefer this to the cream based sensitive cleanser.26/06/2019, By ZacIt has a great scent, and I enjoyed using this product. I will definitely repurchase.11/06/2019, By Candice StansburyI love how clean and fresh my face feels after using this product ! My skin doesn’t feel dry or tight after using it which is great !08/05/2019, By ThiaLove the smell and texture. Deeply cleansing and refreshing. It is a foaming cleanser but the aloe base makes it hydrating and doesn't dry out my skin. I love the tingling sensation and my skin feels clean, soft and plump after washing. It is a bit pricey but it does last quite a while and is very effective.20/04/2019, By LeleThe first 2 weeks of using this product my skin broke out in pimples like never before. It was really bad to a point where I thought of stopping using it. But I guess it was my skin getting used to something new. Now I'm seeing great results indeed; my skin is clearing beautifully and I am happy.25/03/2019, By LanéSkin feels squeaky clean!!11/03/2019, By NancyI'm loving this face cleanser.

So far impressed, once I finish the small bottle, and it works much better than the other products available, I might save a few pennies and buy the bigger one.02/01/2019, By GinaBest natural cleanser so far. Combine with the cocoa scrub once or twice a week.17/11/2018, By AshFirstly the scent of this gel wash is very refreshing and you can feel the tingle on your face because of the peppermint in there. It is very gentle though and does a thorough job of cleaning. My skin also seems to look brighter since I started using this gel wash 2 months ago. The 200ml lasts quite a long time too.16/11/2018, By MI’ve tried this product and it is AMAZING! As someone with very sensitive and ance prone skin , this product is doing wonders for me . It leaves the face feeling well cleansed and soft and it doesn’t leave the face feeling dry at all . Also I never breakout into pimples — Yayyy ! It’s a it pricey but totally worth it .

Love the Esse range.02/08/2018, By GayleneCleared up my breakouts, but still gently on my skin.12/07/2018, By JaneAlthough gel cleansers are typically suited for oily and acne prone skin, this cleanser has been great for my somewhat dry and dehydrated skin. Leaves my skin feeling clean, but not stripped. No sensitivity or irritation. Great natural fragrance.07/07/2018, By CarmenJust love the product. I have been using so many different products and this one never leaves my skin dry or irritated.

It lasts for ages which for me makes it value for money10/04/2018, By HaanimOnly thing that works for me now. Really transformed my skin and nourishes it as well.
It's pricey but worth it and kind to the environment.:))) Win Win02/04/2018, By TazzBest cleanser I ever bought! Does not burn my eyes like other cleansers. Even removes my long wear foundation with only one wash.Only problem is the price,but a little does go a long way.28/02/2018, By TI received a sample size of this with an Esse purchase. It is very runny which I didn't like. It worked okay but isn't worth the price in my opinion.

My face doesn't feel tight and dry after use. Smells great. You only need a small amount to do the job25/01/2018, By ChrisSeriously fantastic product. I have problem sensitive skin. This is not harsh. I've tried the Esse sensitive face wash which didn't clean my face properly in my opinion. I like the smell and the feeling on my skin when applied. Esse should now just find a way to make this product cheaper.16/01/2018, By StephanieAbsolutely love all the Esse products I have tried and use. I have always had a problem with red and blotchy skin, as well as the occasional break out and and issue finding a product that worked for my dry/combination skin, and this cleanser is fantastic for all my issues. Cleans my skin wonderfully, reduces redness and has limited the number of overall problems I have with my skin - all whilst being gentle on my skin and pleasant smelling.04/01/2018, By natalieI absolutely love this product, no drying out of my skin and it feels so good.
