In the past, Esse has not really been a brand that jumped out at me, but having tried out the Body Oil and Clay Face Mask, I’ve changed my tune.
The Body Oil (R279.48) is technically a wax. This treatment is really nourishing that’s easily absorbed, leaving a velvety smooth surface without any greasiness. It smells amazing! I hate to mention another brand in an Esse post, but it reminds me of Moya Products, with that beautiful botanical fragrance. My skin feels hydrated all day thanks to Oils of Jojoba and Marula. On the touch of my skin I can feel it’s nourished with the feeling of an oil layer, but without the greasiness. I wish they made bigger bottles, I want lots more!!
The Clay Mask for Dehydrated, Mature Skin is beautifully creamy on application. You almost want to apply loads as the texture is so divine. Kaolin and Bentonite clays gently draw out impurities and heavy metal toxins associated with environmental and dietary pollution. Olive leaf extract improves elasticity and hydrates tired skin while leaving it feeling soft and supple.
I also love that Esse products are Certified Organic, supports Fair Trade, accredited by Beauty Without Cruelty and endorsed by the Vegan Society. Too see the full Esse range, visit Esse.co.za
