***Component of natural essential oils
A Note on Benzyl Alcohol: The Ecocert Organic logo demands that 95% of the total ingredients must be of natural origin. In all of World Organics skin and beauty products a minimum of 99.1% in the formula TOSC5 of ingredients are of natural origin. The balance of ingredients are the extremely safe food grade preservatives of Potassium Sorbate and Benzyl Alcohol Dehydroacetic Acid.
A Note on Hydrogenated Oils: The concern with hydrogenated oils is that there is the possibility of generating trans fats. If the reaction conditions are carefully controlled then this can be avoided and this is the case with the hydrogenated oils in our products. In other words, the oils are processed at low temperatures 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.
83 out of 87 people would recommend this product13/01/2021, By Lindsayi thoroughly enjoyed this product. the exfoliator is very gentle in comparison to any I've ever used. its best to do morning and night time routine.04/12/2020, By Raineloved the gel cleanser and clay mask, beautiful fragrance25/11/2020, By CassandraA decent amount for the trial. Not sure if it’s improved my combination skin.10/11/2020, By LindiThis is great when recommending Esse products to friends so that they can try out the samples first.16/10/2020, By NicolaLoved this, am sold to buy the bigger bottles of the Gel Cleanser and the Ultra cream for my sensitive, dry skin.13/10/2020, By SonyaGood quality and helps to test different products.12/10/2020, By BGreat way to try out products. Perhaps a tad on the pricey side since the samples are very small.01/09/2020, By SonjaGreat to try different products from the range.17/07/2020, By MelindaIt is making my skin feel taught and the smell is too strong!17/07/2020, By AmyI love Esse!
You can’t go wrong with Esse!
Products where a little too small for me. Wish they came in bigger quantities.14/07/2020, By Thabilebought the oily/combination pack, it was a great way of experimenting, with a great variety of products. picked a few favourites.30/05/2020, By DominiqueI was overwhelmed by the big range esse had, and found this sample pack extremely helpful in narrowing down and testing what worked best for my skin type! I went on to buy the full size products after.
The sizes might seem small, but they last quite a while!05/05/2020, By MoniqueAmazing products and makes you feel like you've been at the spa. Smells amazing and is wonderful on the skin.24/04/2020, By CatherinePerfect size to try and test on your skin. I tried the sensitive pack and it has worked so well for my skin, definitely going to buy the products in full size.22/04/2020, By MariTop stuff but the price is there19/04/2020, By MiancaGreat starter pack with the basic essentials. Has enough to properly test it to see how your skin reacts to it.17/04/2020, By PennyThe trial pack is idea should you wish to , as it says, conduct a trial. Very good for travels.17/04/2020, By PennyThe trial pack is idea should you wish to , as it says, conduct a trial. Very good for travels.16/03/2020, By TashaGreat way to try new products first before purchasing the bigger sizes. Also great for holiday time when you don't need a lot & have limited space02/03/2020, By AnzetTried the combination and dry skin trial packs.
It's great value for money if you're considering using Esse and unsure which products you want to invest in.
Note that the creams are very small quantities - lasted almost a month. The cleansers last longer, and the mask and exfoliator will likely last for months to come as they're used infrequently.
NOTE: Don't travel on a plane with this - the packaging seemed to not handle the air pressure, and two of my cleansers popped open. I had them in a bag, so could scoop up the contents.11/02/2020, By ConcernedHow's that10/02/2020, By ConcernedPrice22/01/2020, By SunetteDefinitely worth buying the trial pack to test these products on your skin. The trial pack for normal skin included 2 cleansers, a scrub, masque and 2 moisturisers.05/12/2019, By LaetetiaI bought the pack for normal skin and I enjoyed every product, especially the scrub and the clay mask. This also lasted a bit long.07/11/2019, By Joodlethis was so disappointing. Half the tubes opened at the back end after one use. Too many masks and cleansers and not enough moisturiser samples29/10/2019, By KerryThese trial packs really are the best way to get to know Esse products. I have loved trying all the different products without committing to the larger sizes to what suits my skin best. The sample sizes last quite well. The only thing I would have loved to have had in the kit is a mini of the Sensitive toner as well. I had to buy the large size to see the benefit of the whole range.29/09/2019, By AmandaI love Esse, and this set is such a pleasure to use while traveling.
20/05/2019, By KellyI recently had an Esse hydrating facial and fell head over heels for their products, seeing the trial pack, I thought it was a great idea. It was a great idea, insofar as trying the different cleansers and moisturisers and seeing what my preference was. I definitely preferred the cream cleanser, the gel cleanser barely foamed up and my skin didn't feel properly cleansed. The clay mask is also great, does not dry skin out at all. I made the pack last for 2 weeks and unfortunately did not see or feel an iota of difference. The sample sizes are tiny and for R250 I definitely expected more - most companies are happy to give away samples of this size to let people try them out. I also completely understand why Esse claims that you should only use their products on your face, but that ties you in exclusively to their range - not worth it for me.05/03/2019, By ChrizaneI absolutely loved this trial pack. I tried other organic skincare ranges since then but I'm going back to Esse. The chocolate scrub is absolutely divine. I prefer the gel wash over cleansing cream. Super glad I gave the testers a go!06/02/2019, By CatherineI bought the Sensitive Skin trial pack, as I want to move away from Dermalogica's products which are becoming completely unaffordable. I've been pretty happy with the products, and they didn't cause any kind of breakout or reaction through switching from the Dermalogica products I was using. I've enjoyed using the products, and am definitely skill considering switching, the only critical comments I have are:
1) The Sensitive Skin trial pack contains quite a few less product samples than the others, but is priced the same.
2) The cleanser doesn't foam up or spread that easily, so you need to use quite a bit more of it to cover your face and neck areas that I've ever needed to use with the Dermalogica cleansers.
3) I also found the moisturisers quite thick difficult to spread, so again had to use quite a bit more. I took to applying it immediately after spraying with a toner mist, so that my face was damp and the extra moisture helped it spread. They also left an oily residue on my skin, but only for the first few days, then it settled.30/01/2019, By RosyGreat products. My skin feels lovely after using it. Feel like the moisturisers can be 10ml and they can make the mask and exfoliator 5ml.24/01/2019, By AmyI have very fussy skin so being able to try out a range of products for my skin before committing to an expensive product is great! I absolutely love the quality and also saw results immediately. Purchased a full size of my favorite products when the samples were up.15/01/2019, By NixA lovely way to test out the range. I could see results straight away! My favourite product is the gel cleanser as it has this awesome pepperminty smell and wakes me up. Some of the samples really are small though for what you pay.28/11/2018, By TwiHave only had success with one other expensive skincare range until coming across Esse. Results are immediately noticeable.19/11/2018, By AneliaPerfect for travel. Smells great and calms sensitive skin effectively.16/11/2018, By RachelAbsolutely love this product, I have incredibly, dry / oily / sensitive skin so trying to find products that actually work was so difficult until someone recommended Esse. Since then I have never looked back!
10/11/2018, By TI love the Esse range but this sample pack was misleading - the picture shows double the amount of products received....The samples are so tiny I reckon they should be free samples.02/10/2018, By Thaveshneecompact for travelling10/09/2018, By Este-mariLove the products! Trail packs are great for traveling!04/09/2018, By WhitneyThese products make my skin feel so fresh and it smells amazing!21/08/2018, By aqeelahMakes my skin feel great. The sample sizes lasts a while and a little goes a long way. I haven't purchased the full size ESSE products as I find this is more cost effective and lasts long enough.17/08/2018, By MikaylaThis trial pack really helped me choose which Esse products I want to buy full-size containers of. A great gift too!08/08/2018, By GGUsed the normal / combination pack to test the range. Worked to reduce redness from the first application! A toner addition would have rounded the products off perfectly. Don’t use with anything else, to avoid dilution of results.03/08/2018, By TanzThis trial pack for dry skins is great. A little expensive for trial size samples but the products themselves are absolutely amazing. I was honestly surprised. At 45 my skin is going through so many problems. I noticed a difference after the first application. I'm not exaggerating, this is a superior organic product and I'm sold. Going to change my current products to Ease. I'm convinced!25/06/2018, By KeikomiBeautiful, natural and makes my skin feel clean and fresh. Amazing for travelling.14/06/2018, By ElleHonestly, I finished it within a few days. Kind of underwhelmed, for that amount of money I would have expected it to stretch a little further. The cleanser was what ran out. I don't think the sample covers enough days to know if there was a difference in my skin... It stayed the same - I didn't observe a huge difference.14/05/2018, By Kristi-JadeLoved this trial pack! It included so many good products to sample than other average trial pack that just sample facewash and moisturizer. Only downside is that I wished it included a toner in the Dry Skin pack. Otherwise super happy with the products!02/05/2018, By PhillipaMy main motivation for trying this range was because it is cruelty-free and somebody recommended it on the Vegan Society of SA's Facebook page. I was thrilled when I saw that there was a trial pack option available. I've only tried the two moisturisers (I ordered the dry skin trial pack) and I wish they were as big as everything else in the pack, but my skin feels fabulous and smooth, and the products smell great. I've just ordered the ultra moisturiser and was quite chuffed to see that it can be used as both a day and a night cream, which helps with the budget for now.21/04/2018, By MelLovely products, especially for sensitive skin. I ordered a trial pack because I really struggle to find facial products that agree with me. I'll definitely order the full size next.17/03/2018, By SamA great trial pack to try the esse products. A must have.06/02/2018, By KerrynA blogger had recommended the trial pack to use whilst travelling. We had a long hall flight (32 hours total travelling) and the products where an absolute lifesaver and the perfect refresher on the layovers. I had never used Esse before and I will definitely try their products in the future as a result. My skin was glowing after using the cacao exfoliator and the moisturisers are fantastic! Would definitely recommend this product.15/01/2018, By MarniThis trial pack is perfect for trying out different products before deciding if you would like to purchase the full size products. I ordered the Dry Skin trial pack and loved it! My skin look and feel fantastic and I have proceeded to order the Ultra Moisturizer and will purchase the cream cleaner, cream mask and exfoliater as soon as my current range is finished. After only a week of Esse products I barely need any foundation as my skin look so much more even and clear. Love it!14/01/2018, By kira91Esse products are the best!
You can see the difference in your skin immediately. Bought this for my mom and her face is looking fuller. I've used it a few times as well and it's worked nicely on my skin too. Def a range I will use when I'm a little bit older.08/01/2018, By RonellSLoved the packaging. The product is lovely and it has a nice smell. The cleanser is gentle and the moisturisers are nourishing without being oily on my combination skin.23/12/2017, By JeannieLove the product. My skin feels great. I only got 3 tubes though. The trail pack is not as indicated in the picture. Just a bit dissapointed in that.20/12/2017, By TandyPerfect for trying out the Esse range - but for me, a pack like this every few months is actually perfect as my face products last ages! I have yet to use all the items, but the moisturizer is amazing - a velvety soft feel without that excessive oily residue.06/10/2017, By ElsieThis is a lovely gift. Packaging beautiful and the products too.13/09/2017, By Almost crunchy mamaLoved this trial pack. I tied the products for dry skins and it worked a treat. The probiotics also helped clear up my acne. I'm not a fan of essential oils in my skin care but loved this range nonetheless. Will buy this pack again for when I'm traveling and full size products for at home.13/09/2017, By Almost crunchy mammaLoved this trial pack. I tied the products for dry skins and it worked a treat. The probiotics also helped clear up my acne. I'm not a fan of essential oils in my skin care but loved this range nonetheless. Will buy this pack again for when I'm traveling and full size products for at home.10/09/2017, By KarinWonderful set and perfect gift - the products feel great, smell lovely, work well ... and the box is beautiful forever after.29/08/2017, By JuaneAbsolutely loved it! Received 6 products for the normal skin range and the gel cleanser and cocoa scrub is AMAZING! Defnitely buying this range!!21/08/2017, By JenI really liked the products, and it was great to try them out before buying the larger dispensers. Think the packaging could be a bit more environmentally friendly though.24/07/2017, By MichelleLoved this Trial Pack. Especially the Gel Cleaner and Ultra Moisturiser. You should definitely give it a try!21/07/2017, By Jeanne JI got this on special and am really enjoying it, especially the mint cleanser which has become my favourite as it is so refreshing. You need a tiny amount of each product so these samples last for ages. Well worth the price even if it is not on special. No wooden box though, it comes in a tin.12/06/2017, By SinoI'm happy with the trial pack for oily /combination skin and my skin is not oily anymore05/06/2017, By VickyI would have preferred a more varied sample pack. The image to advertise shows 5 or so bottles where as the tin I received was 3 small tubes, 2 of which were similar moisturizers. The point of me buying it was to hopefully get to sample some of the other goodies before purchase, such as the eye or lip cream. I just felt it was a tad disappointing, as I'm new to the range. But Esse is a great skin care range regardless and the actual products are lovely.02/06/2017, By ElsabeThis gives you such a good indication of which of the Esse products will work well for you. Also a great travel pack!11/01/2017, By ShariLovely packaging and good to try out if you just want to sample the range of products to see what works best for you.09/12/2016, By ilhaamReceived my trial pack just yesterday and absolutely love it. My sister slept over and tried it too, and asked that I order one for her :) The cocoa scrub is amazing!My skin has never felt that smooth before!22/11/2016, By KatEffective lovely products! Worthwhile to note packaging is different to what is pictured.22/11/2016, By MbaliSo I only started using the product but I immediately felt the difference the moment I put it on my skin which is very sensitive. The facewash already moisturises my skin as I was, leaving it feeling soft and supple.
I cannot wait to use the other products in the sample. I might just migrate to this product.10/10/2016, By Karla-LilienneI had an esse facial and decided to try the products. I had the dry sensitive skin trial pack and love it.
It is a great trial or travel size pack
I have since bought the whole range for myself as well as my husband...10/09/2016, By SeqelMy skin is prone to dry spells as well as hormonal break outs. This is the ONLY product Ive ever used that relieves all skin problems. My skin is soft and smooth and my breakouts are minimal compared to when Im not using the products. Smells divine and none of the chemical crap that causes problems further down the line. Love it!07/09/2016, By CorliaAn excellent product to use and easy on the skin. Will recommend it any day!28/08/2016, By MichaelThe trial pack gives a good overview of the basic range, nicely packaged and super effective - can highly recommend04/05/2016, By CherieI love the packaging, its so attractive, the product smells fantastic and clean and my skin felt amazing immediately after use however it just did not agree with my skin type.28/04/2016, By MagdelI love the packaging and the fact that I received a gel and cream cleanser. I could easily see that the cream cleanser suits my skin better. I would definitely buy the cocoa exfoliator next time, after I have tested it. I did not however like the smell of the cleanser and toner.15/02/2016, By KimIve only used the intense moisturiser but am looking forward to trying out all of the products. Smell great, absorbs well. It was just a spoil-me kind of gift to myself to try out the range that advertises probiotics in its makeup24/11/2015, By CarlaLoved this pack! Enjoyed alternating between the 2 cleansers. Really love the packaging. So glad for the little info leaflet included to help one decide which products to choose for different skin types. My favourite was the cacao scrub. Just want to eat it!02/11/2015, By ShannI ordered the trial pack for sensitive skin. I absolutely love the little wooden box it comes in. All the products smell great and I cannot even explain the almost immediate difference I noticed in my skin. Even my husband noticed. I have since ordered the full size bottles of everything I liked and will be using only Esse on my face from now on.14/08/2015, By MiekeLess than a week after starting to use the trail pack, I switched to Esse. I enjoyed the gel cleanser more than the cream cleanser, but it is great for gently removing makeup.20/07/2015, By JenniferIf you
e thinking of switching over to the Esse range, I would highly recommend the trial pack. Good selection of products to help you decide what you like. Im a total convert. I am also pleasantly surprised at how long it lasts -- it has been a month and its still going!13/11/2014, By AneesaI bought the trial pack for sensitive skin and also received the rich moisturiser as a sample. These works better than top brands like Clarins and Estee Lauder My favourites are the ultra moisturiser and the cream cleanser. The cream cleanser is amazing. Its light and fluid and yet removes make-up and cleanses your face all in one go, eliminating the need for a two-step cleansing process. The moisturiser gave me glowing even skin that my friends kept asking why my skin looked so good.15/07/2014, By HlengiweIve been using this trial pack for about a week now and Im especially loving the exfoliator, toner and moisturiser. The packaging is very cute and would make for a great gift. The crème cleanser is gentler on the skin then conventional cleansers. On day 3 of use I had a slight break-out but it has since cleared. The products haven combatted my oily T-zone area but my skin does have a slightly healthier glow to it. Ive also noticed that my makeup is applying more smoothly on my skin. Ill be continuing use for a month to see its true effect30/05/2014, By TAMMYEsse trial pack is great, loved being able to try all the different products. The face cream and toner are especially lovely.23/10/2013, By Bronwinlove the wooden box packaging, makes a stunning gift and wonderful to use if your cash trapped to buy the full sized bottles. i love esse, the quality is unquestionable.
