  1. Hiker's Friend

    Karen

    As an office worker, I realise that I need my Vitamin D, but also that too much can be a bad thing. I end up hiking with no sunscreen and then getting severely burnt which is NOT good for my skin, but I cannot wrap my head around the nasties in conventional sunscreen, so won’t wear it. This weekend, we did a beautiful Drakensberg hike – I covered most of my skin with hat, long sleeves, long tights etc, but I always get burnt on the back of my hands! I remembered Esse had launched their sunscreen, applied it each morning, and after 2 full days of sun, they look exactly the same as they did before we started. First time that I’ve not been in agony after a hike! The product texture is smooth and silky – I think it works even better when carried with you so it warms up in the bottle and smooths straight into your skin. I am extremely impressed.

  2. I love this sunscreen

    Caryl

    This is the best sunscreen that I’ve used for my face. I’ve been using it for 3 months now, including 2 weeks during a very hot summer in Europe. It is highly effective in protecting my skin against the sun’s harmful rays, and I find that when I use it I don’t really need foundation, because it has a lovely subtle tint to it. My skin looks dewy and healthy, love it.

  3. Happy Sunny Days

    Yvette Botha

    I love the fact that it has a slight tint to it, it feels like it just melts into your natural skin tone so no white streaks on aplication. It also has a non sticky formulation. Having no fragrance makes it even better and no more burning eyes. You also dont have to wear it with the Esse foundations, because the foundations already has an spf in.

  4. I want to like this product but...

    Marlize

    I really wanted to like this sunscreen. I took a chance and spent the money on it and now I’m starting to regret it. The pump bottle doesn’t work properly, it takes me a lifetime to dispense the sunscreen. It has a plastic smell and the sunscreen does not sit well under their foundation.

    Response from Esse: Hi Marlize, please make sure the pump is firmly screwed on and then flick the bottle to force the contents toward the lid (it can be stored upside down too).  This packaging is airless and any air inside can cause the pump action to stop.  Once it gets going and provided it is not opened, it should pump consistently. The sunscreen is not formulated to be used in conjunction with the foundations. The foundations also contain an SPF of 30 so applying a sunscreen with them is not necessary. I think that is one of our favourite parts of the foundations – they double up as sun protection too. There is no fragrance component in the sunscreen and we have chosen not to mask the smell of the natural ingredients as this product is intended for sensitive users. The sunscreen is a perfect summer companion for those days you are out and about more than usual.
