Join the probiotic skincare revolution

Your skins natural protective barrier works to keep moisture in and toxins out, but when this barrier isn’t looked after it can breakdown and lead to dry, sensitive skin. The Esse Nourish Moisturiser is designed to boost barrier function in dry and sensitive skin, to lock in moisture and keep out toxins and opportunistic microbes. The prebiotics and probiotics in the formulation improve red, rough skin and reduce irritation by favouring the growth of beneficial microbes, thus boosting skin condition. Esse has specially formulated the Sensitive range so that you too can shine this summer.

Our strict ingredient policy means that you can always shop according to your values. Every item on FtN is checked to be better for the environment, socially responsible, good for you and free from toxic ingredients.

My skin at some point could not tolerate any other topical but this. It’s good for sensitive skin. I don’t have mature skin but this works for me. The moisture leaves you feeling just right, light enough yet adequately moisturised. Smells divine too.

I have been using this product for a few years... It's perfect for my dry, sensitive skin. It prevents both dryness and breakouts. Well suited to the South African climate.

I think that I may have just found my new preferred range of skin care. This moisturizer has calmed down my highly-sensitive very irritated rosacea-prone skin within one week of use.

Have been using this product for many years . Excellent product
12/05/2021, By Gugu
Must have especially in winter.
29/03/2021, By Tammy
Love this product - usually wear it at night, but I know I will probably wear this morning & night during winter. Lovely rich product without causing a break out.
27/03/2021, By AP
Excellent product for dry skin. Unfortunately too pricey for me to continue using
10/11/2020, By Lindi
Very thick and rich moisturiser. I prefer to put this on at night before going to bed.
21/08/2020, By Gugulethu
I've been using this Moisturiser for a couple of months and it has been great for my skin especially during winter! It also goes a long way.
16/07/2020, By Edyta
It is as a better consistency than the plain sensitive skin one, but it still doesn't moisturise enough during winter. My skin doesn't feel as rejuvenated as it should, I think I will still have to look for another product for myself. Very expensive, would expect it to be perfect.
16/06/2020, By Laura
This moisturizer really nourishes my skin and has been helping to lock in moisture, especially during the dry spell of winter!
12/06/2020, By Ashlyn
Deeply nourishing for my severely dry and sensitive skin. Cannot live without this cream, simply the best.
29/05/2020, By Gugu's
I have been using this product for two weeks and it feels really good on my skin. Good Product
19/04/2020, By Mianca
Super hydrating and leaves a lasting moist feel to the skin
19/04/2020, By Mianca
my skin absorbs any moisturiser so quickly and leaves my skin feeling dry but this product left a lasting moisturised feel. Great
20/03/2020, By Chantelle
Love this product, it feels light on my skin but is very nourishing. I absolutely LOVE the scent of it too!
10/03/2020, By Cayleigh
I have tried 4 of the Esse moisturisers, this one is hands down the very best!!! Nothing better to start my day xx

This is my go to moisterizer from Esse. I like the way it smells and feels. A little really goes a long way
26/08/2019, By Natalie
I received a sample of this and it is very nourishing for the winter months.
25/08/2019, By Sue
Great product
09/08/2019, By Lola
Absolutely love this moisturizer! Super hydrating. Lasts really long (I paired mine with the hydrating moisturizer which I use in the morning as it is better suited with my sunscreen). Esse is amazing, my skin is very sensitive and it reacts really well to Esse. I have been using it for almost a year.
04/08/2019, By sam
This is the best moisturiser I have ever used. It removed the dehydration, dryness and peeling from my face. The creme is very thick and takes some effort rubbing in. Lasts til evening, u don't need to touch up during the day. Has a nice glowy effect after application. Improves skin with continued use.
01/07/2019, By Elaine
Perfect for Summer... but unfortunately it's not moisturizing enough for winter :(
07/05/2019, By jenni
I suddenly had a huge problem with my skin sensitivity this product was amazing , soothing and nourishing
10/04/2019, By Jesse
Received this as a sample in my last purchase! Its an amazing cream - definitely buying it!!
13/03/2019, By Kyle
Worth every cent! I love Esse products! They just get it right (apart from the overprice lip balm lol)
13/01/2019, By Faeron
Feels so good on my skin and really has helped with me problem skin. I love it!

Received this as a sample. What a lovely cream. I love it.

Love the Esse range. Great moisturiser. Leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated.
13/03/2018, By Bernardine
This cream never left my skin feeling oily or dry, it always felt good. Helped a lot for irritation.
19/02/2018, By Maaike
The best face cream I have ever had. Used to have lots of skin issues but since Im using Esse products they are all gone!
21/01/2018, By Fati
Super moisturizing . love it!
11/01/2018, By Zelda
I've been using the Ultra Moisturiser on my dry and sensitive skin but ordered this one as it's summer and I just wanted something a little "lighter". I've not been disappointed - keeps my skin hydrated without the heaviness. It's also helped improve the redness I struggle with.
19/11/2017, By Sue
This product has a lovely vanilla smell. You can't leave it to be absorbed by itself though. It is a decent moisturizer and my sensitive skin did not have any bad reaction to it. However if you have very dry skin, this will not do the trick.
17/10/2017, By Annette
Bought this after receiving a sample. Immediately found it very calming and soothing on my skin! I would recommend it to anyone whose skin needs a bit of a boost or TLC (my skin is very dry, dull and irritated, post pregnancy)
15/10/2017, By Yvette
This product smells divine and is a good moisturizer for dry skin. Its also one of the few products from Esse without the linalool / Geraniol / Limonene which is not recommended by EWG.
25/09/2017, By Liz
This is the best moisturizer I have used in a long time. I had been battling with sensitivity and dehydration - and this has helped my skin feel soft and happy again. Also a great base for make-up.
23/06/2017, By Aruna
This was the first time trying this moisturizer as I usually use the light moisturizer and sometimes the ultra.
When I first opened it I was not convinced, it looked, smelled and felt completely different to all other esse products. I also used too much the first time because of the different texture. My skin however was convinced, after two days it looked and felt fuller and brighter. I am completely convinced now that is just another great Esse product and perfect for winter and when your skin needs some extra TLC
08/05/2017, By jaya
This product feeds your skin and gives it an extra glow. You can really see the difference! It may be a bit pricey, but you can't expect to pay a penny for a diamond. This is great quality and I'm so happy Esse exists :)

This is a real Spoil!
Smells divine. Its super rich nourishing. Feels amazing
21/05/2016, By Yaksha
The probiotics really settled my skin. This is a genuine product !

Well done Esse!
