    Absolutely love this foundation. Natural and glowy.

  2. katymorag26

    Cannot recommend this enough. For someone who doesnt like wearing make up, you don’t realise you are wearing it!! So light and great coverage. Totally worth it!!

  3. liezl.bruwer

    This is the best foundation I have ever used. It’s light but the coverage is fantastic and gets better during the day. It’s hydrating and my skin glows. The SPF is another bonus point.

  4. Linda

    Lovely light foundation which gives coverage and doesn’t clog up your skin!

  5. hatmanners

    Stunning foundation that doesn’t break my skin out, but nourishes it with probiotics and botanicals. You feel as though you have nothing on your skin, yet the coverage is great. So so happy with it and will be reordering!

  6. Brambora

    Lovely foundation with medium coverage. It hydrates my skin well and gives it a healthy glow. Plus it has got SPF 30 which really does the job during sunny days.

  7. ayeshaalt

    Great foundation. Lightweight and hydrating.
    It is very easy to blend and feel like my own skin.

  8. Kizzy

    Great skincare foundation with SPF 30. Glides on and leaves my skin soft all day. It has a natural finish.

  9. Kizzy

    The colour match is perfect. It glides on with ease and leaves my skin radiant all day. I use it after I have used the sensitive Esse range. The coverage is natural but can be built up. This is the perfect everyday foundation with built in skincare.

    I took a guess at my shade after purchasing a sample of F3 and it was slightly too dark (I’m fair-light with blueish undertones) I’m happy with shade F2, it’s a good match. I am really pleased with this foundation, mostly as its primary ingredient is not water, which I find very drying on my skin. It contains SPF 30 which is a big bonus too. I car wear this for long periods without it transferring onto clothes, and no topping up required. I have used other clean foundations from Ere Perez, RMS and Kosas and this is the best I’ve found. 5 stars!


    I have dry skin which has been helped wonderfully by Esse’s protect oil, but the foundation was not for me. I ordered a sachet as a trial. It seemed to sit on the skin and was a bit shiny.

    Everything you could ever want from a foundation and more! It glides on so smoothly, lasts all day, and doesn’t feel like its even there! My skin is sensitive and spot-prone and it loves this foundation; I’ve not had a breakout since using it (1 week). It costs more than I would usually spend on a foundation but it’s so worth it when you consider that it WORKS, is clean, vegan, cruelty free, and (mostly) organic. AND contains probiotics. So so impressed. Thank you Esse!

    Since I’ve discovered this product I will never use any other foundation. It has competely decreased my use of other cosmetics as well:). I love a lightweight foundation – there is nothing worse than plastering your face. This covers what needs to while lessening the need for blushers and powder. And if I just need a little more I do an extra layer. I have found that during hot days it creates a bit of shine, but then just add some powder and all good to go.

    And then the best part… it has SPF so I don’t need to add a sunscreen… phew.

    Love this foundation. Skin feels healthy. Looks healthy. Coverage is natural and youthful.

  15. Amanda

    Great light coverage foundation for my extremely dry sensitive skin. I just wish they had a matching under eye concealer.

  16. Chevonne

    Good day, hope all is well, I have been having a look at your products in Faithful to nature and would love to be a brand ambassador of your product. Please let me know. Thank you . ?

  17. Sam

    Love this foundation! Excellent medium coverage, dewy but not oily and filled with nourishing ingredients. My favorite part of this foundation besides the formula is the airless pump. No product is wasted! Thank you Esse for sponsoring the KZN blogger meet up. I am definitely going to repurchase.

  18. Caryl

    I’m 45 , and of late I’ve really battled with foundation products, they either make my skin break out, or create a mask-like effect that exaggerates wrinkles. However this one is different, it glides and and melts into my skin, giving lovely coverage, but creating a moisturised, healthy glow. And I love the fact that it has a sunscreen in it. This is an outstanding product, I would highly recommend it.

  19. Carla

    Thank you ESSE for creating this foundation! I got mine yesterday and I am so impressed! I love the feel on my skin and the coverage is great!

  20. Tamara

    I really love the foundation. You get full coverage but it feels like you don’t have foundation on and makes your skin glow. The ultimate natural look. As a working Mum always on the go this is a best friend as it makes me look great and takes very little time to do my makeup in the morning. And the smell is divine!!!

  21. Marit

    I love it and will never buy anyone else..
    Perfect for my skin.
    I have rosacea
