I was on the search for a new cleanser when Esse Organic Skincare happened to send me their best selling Gel Cleanser. With my temperamental skin I was rather intrigued as to how effective the gel cleanser would be and whether it would leave my skin feeling cleansed enough. I have a tendency to go for cleansers that strip the skin leaving it tight rather than creamy moisturising cleansers and the gel option sounded like the perfect medium. Esse has an incredible philosophy that combines the best of scientific edge with strong organic principles so I knew my skin was in good hands. I have been using the cleanser morning and night for the past week and am very happy with the results. The gel cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and dare I say even has an added glow to it.
Esse Gel Cleanser is suitable for all skin types, is PH balanced and has a divine formula. The formula consists of peppermint and spearmint oils to refresh ones skin and improves circulation to aid the elimination of toxins. The scent is very refreshing and does help a lot to wake one up and revive ones skin, I liked that it wasn’t too strong or overpowering. It also contains Rooibos and Honeybush extracts which have strong anti-oxidant properties.
The consistency of the Gel Cleanser foams ever so slightly and the mints creates a subtle tingling sensation both of these things contribute to a cleaner feeling and I liked that a small amount spreads quite easily. The formula also washes off with ease and doesn’t leave any oily residue.
