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.

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.

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.

this is a wonderful rich cream
21/05/2021, By Mau
It dries hard and sticky and does not seem to penetrate the skin. It dries matt which gives the skin a dull look
08/01/2021, By Adele
I love this cream. It is super rich and moisturising for my very dry skin - my absolute go-to in winter. Also smells great.

I find it a bit sticky and very heavy for day time. Will use it up as a night cream.
19/05/2020, By Natalie
Love Esse products, cannot live without this moisturizer!
07/05/2020, By Candice
I moved over to Esse from Dermalogica, because I was looking for something local which also didn't break the bank, and I found exactly that in this product. This cream is ultra rich and luxurious and smells incredible.
28/04/2020, By Marian
Highly recommended facial product.
13/03/2020, By Lana van Zyl
I struggle with i very dry itchy skin and although i have only been using this product for about 2 weeks there is a improvement. It is a bit expensive so i only use it a night.
21/02/2020, By Rebecca
Lovely moisturiser which makes my skin feel great! A little heavy for the summer months but perfect for winter and for night.

Lovely natural fragrance that isn't overpowering. Absorbs into the skin well and isn't too rich for either summer or winter. Unfortunately I find it too pricey for a small jar.
14/11/2019, By Roxanne
I love Esse for many, many reasons. I wanted a good night moisturiser and this one has been amazing. I use it with the Esse serum and it leaves my skin super soft and hydrated.
20/08/2019, By Lize
Fantastic moisturiser. Smells great, absorbs well. Works for my fairly dry skin. If you need more moisture for the dryer times, try supplementing with the Esse Cream Mask or upgrade to the Esse Ultra Moisturiser.
08/05/2019, By Thia
Received it as a sample in my Sensitive trial pack and absolutely loved it. I immediately felt the difference in my skin after applying. My skin is very dehydrated and this cream worked wonders. It is pricey but delivers great results.
01/04/2019, By Pam
A very good night cream ..... layer it with oil ..... but really love the Esse range. And love that it is South African too !
22/02/2019, By Anique
Lovely moisturizer but wasn't adding enough moisture to my face.
17/09/2018, By L
Love the Esse range. Great moisturiser. Leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. Smells good too.
14/09/2018, By Liezl
Fantastic fragrance - very natural and great texture. Rich and wonderful. Great for dry skin
03/08/2018, By Chantal
Lovely fragrance and texture, but leaves mature skin a bit dry. Not recommended for skin that needs deep moisture.
08/06/2018, By Madelein
I got this cream for the winter when my face becomes very dry. After 3 days I could really feel the difference and my skin had a natural, healthy glow. This is my second Esse product and I am very happy with it. Will not buy another brand when it comes to face cream.
21/05/2018, By Sue
Still my favourite Moisturiser by far! Have been using for a couple of years now and love the feel and slight scent.
07/05/2018, By Natalie
i really love this moisturiser. It hydrates the skin deeply and does not leave any oily residue
01/12/2017, By Penny
I am very impressed with this product. I noticed a difference almost over night. My skin went having dry patches to feeling soft and moisturized. I’m looking forward to tryining their other products.
09/10/2017, By Sue
Love this product. Great for morning and nite. A little goes a long way. Esse still my favourite facial brand!
08/09/2017, By Elsie
I am close to fifty years old and have been using this for a day and night cream. It has lasted me much longer than I expected. You only need to use a little and my skin feels beautifully soft and nourished.
28/06/2017, By Megan
A few years ago I decided to start using more natural, gentle products. I've never looked back as the quality of Esse is exceptional, and I'm far happier now with my skin than I've ever been! The Rich Moisturiser is perfect for my sensitive, dry skin, particularly in the winter months.
13/07/2016, By Diane
I love that it is not oily but rich enough for my aged combination skin - smooth and silky and you only use a little
30/05/2016, By sarah
I really liked this product when trying the trial pack, however it is disappointing that their range doesnt include any products with a SPF? A nice rich cream which is suited to my mid 30s ageing skin!
21/09/2015, By Debbie
My dry, mature skin loves this cream. Ive been using it as my Day Cream.
