    I have been using Esse products for many years. This oil was introduced to me at a spa in South Africa. When my skin needs some extra love, this is my go to product. What I love is that a little goes a long way, and my skin feels and looks supple when I use protect oil. I prefer to use it in the morning. I apply after my serum.

    I was recommended this product because of my sensitive skin, which tends to get dry in some areas especially during the winter. I was afraid to put oil on my face at first as I have acne outbreaks sometimes, but I was positively surprised. The oil hydrates but doesn’t feel heavy, and it doesn’t make my skin shiny either (not even in the T-zone). It’s great to protect the skin in the cold and windy winter months, highly recommend it.

    This oil is lovely and thick, one drop goes a long way, I mix a couple of drops with my moisturiser in the morning and again in the evening with my omega night cream. I have been using this protect oil for a few weeks and it has reduced the redness on my nose and cheeks and my face is no longer dry and dehydrated. This product is worth every Penny.

    Love this oil. Smells amazing and can be used even when my skin has had a reaction to something to help calm it down

    Has helped immensely with the eczema-prone skin on my neck. Texture is thicker than most oils so takes time to absorb.

  6. Kizzy

    Amazing product, has noticeable reduced my fine lines. I mix it in to the nourish moisturiser, morning and evening.

    Lovely oil, but not for acne prone skin.
    I use one drop in my morning and evening moisturiser to improve hydration, the skin does feel nourished and a small drop makes a nice difference. It really does go a long way.

    The only downside for me is I have acne prone skin, oily skin, so unfortunately I can’t use more than one drop as it does cause congestion. I have yet to try one oil that doesn’t, I was hoping this would be it, however I still have to use in moderation to maintain the balance of nourished skin and whilst still preventing breakouts.


    About the best summer product I have found. Seems quite thick at first but dissolves into the skin beautifully. Will keep using for both sun and the cold/wind.

    I am prone to adult cystic acne. Overall my skin has improved tons since using Esse products and breakouts are happening really seldom now. But when it happens every now and then, the Protect Oil is my secret weapon. It always manages to subdue any upcoming cysts even the really bad ones. The cysts don’t swell up, they don’t hurt, they don’t get inflamed. They will slowly vanish over 2 to max. 3 days time without anybody else even realizing that they were there. I love this oil and recommend it highly for anybody who has problems with adult acne. It makes a huge difference.

    This serum makes my skin happy! It smells and feels divine…its a skin comforter & protector all in one golden liquid!

    Inflamed? Redness? Aggravation? This is your answer in a bottle. Calms, protects and shields the skin from any environmental aggressors!

    I know I have reviewed before about The Protect Oil but I thought I would share this too.
    It was very late one night and decided to make pancakes for my little boy for school, in our new stone pan.
    As Murphy would have it, I burned my thumb badly on this new stone pan and panicked as I knew I had a full day of treatments the next day, and needed my poor thumb.
    I checked the medicine box for burn guard….could not find it. Then I thought about ESSE….hmmmm.
    I remembered seeing the results the Repair Oil had on someone’s scars and thought maybe it will work on buns too. Alas when I checked my cupboard I remembered I had left it at the spa. And as it was past midnight i wasn’t going out to get it.
    So i turned to my little pot of gold, the Protect Oil and smothered my thumb in it and hoped for the best.
    The next morning, expecting a massive blister, I checked out my poor thumb…nothing! Just a strange little white line, but no blister, no pain!
    I spent the rest of the day doing facials and massages without even noticing the pancake-stone pan burn…
    Thank you ESSE!

    *Protection for skin
    *Calming sensitive and reactive skin
    *works well on the lips as a gloss or repairing lip balm

    Overall a great and well worth it product! This has quickly become one of my faves.

    I was extremely wary about using an oil on my skin but the first time I tried it, I loved it! It is not heavy at all. I now use it clean on my skin at night and use a couple of drops in my Nourish moisturizer in the morning. I’m so happy with that little extra protection during the day.

  15. Kerry Venter

    Such a beautiful smelling, lightweight oil. Works well as a primer under my foundation for smooth, glowy skin. I also discovered its amazing for split ends in my hair! A little goes a long way!

    Every now and then I get a bad spell of sinus, however this winter has been an absolute breeze compared to any other with this magical product. No more redness around the nose area. I love to use it as a lip conditioner too. I could visibly see results within two days of using this product. A really versatile product and a handbag must have!

  17. Yvette Botha

    As an eczema suffer from time to time, I love this oil. Its light weight formula allows for easy penetration so your skin does not feel greasy. This is also great for use on the lips or dry spots anywhere on the body, especially now during winter months.
