I was absolutely thrilled to be sent the Esse Cream Mask from my Christmas wish list and couldn’t wait to try it in combination with my Esse Microderm Exfoliator because I love doing facials with products from the same brand. It has identical packaging to the exfoliator, a simple but classy glass jar.
This mask is made for mature or dehydrated skin, and most people actually suffer from dehydrated skin to an extent, so I think it would be great for anyone with normal to dry and even combination skin, except perhaps very oily skins. It contains rooibos extract, coconut oil, jojoba seed oil, rose geranium oil and aloe vera extract as well as sodium hyaluronate for hydration. 97% of the ingredients are from natural origin and 62% of the ingredients are from organic farming, so in keeping with Esse’s fantastic natural ethos.
I absolutely love the scent of this mask, which reminds me a bit of honey and fynbos (not sure why, perhaps the rose geranium in combination with the other ingredients). It feels comfortable for the full time I have it on, and after I remove it with a warm flannel it leaves my skin feeling soft, plumped up and moisturised.
It costs R219.95 online at Rubybox, or can be purchased for R320 from Faithful to Nature, or R330 from The Spa Shop. Alternatively you can try Wellness Warehouse. I hope some of you give this a try because it’s a beautiful mask.
