Love this cleanser, it removes make up beautifully and is gentle on my skin. It lasts for ages which for me makes it value for money

Only 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 Win

Best 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.

I 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. It did however feel quite cooling & refreshing on the skin.

Feels really lovely on my skin. My face doesn't feel tight and dry after use. Smells great. You only need a small amount to do the job

Seriously 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.

Absolutely 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.

Love this product and brand!! Removes makeup brilliantly and has an amazing fresh peppermint smell. Also gentle on the skin and doesn't leave your skin tight.

I usually opt for cream cleansers but this sample was gentle on my dry skin

I love this product. I am lazy when it comes to removing mascara so this is amazing for people like me. I get up in the morning, wash my face with this and all traces of mascara is gone. :) I have normal to dry skin.

This is an excellent cleanser which is super gentle but still highly effective in remove makeup and dirt.

I Love this whole. Locally produced, vegan and very good! This cleanser is in my shower and the pump action top means I never over use and it lasts forever.

smells great and feels good on your skin
02/06/2017, By Elsabe
Just love the fresh uplifting smell and the feeling it leaves on your skin. It really cleanses well and removes make up easily. You don't really need a make up remover with this wash it removes make up fast and efficient (much better that the creamy version of Esse cleansers)

Cleans skin thoroughly without stripping it. Leaves skin soft and smooth
