Review – Esse Gel Cleanser

Esse Probiotic Skincare is a brand that I’m a huge fan of. I love their ethics and their products are amazing. I love to incorporate gel cleansers as part of my double cleansing routine and one of my favourites is the Esse Probiotic Gel Cleanser (200ml | £37)

A foaming, tingling wash that deep cleanses without drying. Peppermint and Spearmint oils refresh and improve micro-circulation to aid in the elimination of toxins. African Aloe extract exhibits soothing properties.

  • African Aloe Vera exhibits anti-inflammatory properties and regulates immune function
  • Mild, biodegradable, plant-based foaming agents create a luxury lather that feels refreshing and stimulating, but does not dry or strip the skin.
  • Spearmint, Peppermint, Caraway, and Rosemary deliver a distinctive fresh fragrance.

 I love this gel cleanser. It comes in a dark brown glass pump bottle which looks good on my bathroom shelf and is of course recyclable. I’m a fan of pump bottles as they are handy to dispense just the right amount of product.

It is suitable for all skin types and has a pH balance of 4.5. The light brown colour is striking and the scent is wonderfully fresh and clean.

I like to use it as a second cleanser in my evening routine after using a cleansing balm or oil. It lathers gently and is really effective at removing dirt and impurities without drying my skin.

I also like to reach for it in the morning as I’m not much of a morning person.. it feels nice and tingly, wakes up and revives my skin and senses.

I literally have to hide it from my hubby as he loves to hijack it. By the way it is also great for shaving!

Have you tried Esse Gel Cleanser?
