A staple

Joyce Driver-radulovic

I’ve tried many, many cleansers and always come back to this one. It cleanse well without irritating my sensitive prone to adult acne skin. I use a tiny tiny amount day and night and the 200ml bottle lasts 2 months. A staple in my bathroom. I’m yet to try the new cleanser from the sensitive range!

Gentle on the skin


I love the scent of this cleanser, it’s very refreshing and leaves skin feeling very refreshed. I’m happy to use this in the morning as a light rinse but it’s not very good at removing makeup. So I would suggest that you remove your makeup thoroughly before washing up with this cleanser.

One of my new favourites


I’ve always loved the Esse Cocoa Exfoliator, so I was keen to give this gel cleanser a go. The first thing I noticed was the colour – it’s an orange-brown hue, which is unusual as most cleansers are clear or white. The consistency is lovely, not too runny, yet not too thick. It has a lovely fresh peppermint scent which I love, it really leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed. The packaging is great too. I love pump bottles and even more so when they’re made of glass. Eco-friendly, animal-friendly and free of nasty chemicals, this is a great product for anyone who wants an eco-conscious cleanser that doesn’t skimp on performance.
