Esse Plus is a very premium skincare brand from South Africa and is certified organic and can only be found in certain beauty salons and spas in Malaysia. Recently, the new range of skincare known as Esse Plus was launched. Read on about it.
These cutie kids really stole the show that night with their short skit about the importance of probiotic. I know probiotics rather well as I make them at home, with milk and water kefir and I know the great effects they have on our tummy health. Even my kids take them from a young age. However, it was the first time for me to learn about probiotics for the skin inside skincare.
Esse Plus aims to be the most effective skincare for anti aging in the world, with the help of special ingredients like probiotic microbes that are added to their products to improve barrier function and to slow down the inevitable aging process. Esse uses a multi-dimensional approach to optimise the microbiome on the skin. This includes pH, preservation, essential fatty acid balance, and the use of the purest certified organic ingredients.
In the all new Esse Plus line, the Devil’s Claw which is a desert plant and harvested from the Kalahari in Namibia is used. It is one of the most potent inflammatory modulators in the plant kingdom, dramatically slowing the ageing process while protecting collagen and elastin, the building blocks for youthful skin.
Eye Contour Cream - Esse Eye Contour Cream includes actives that strengthen vascular structure (to prevent bruising), inhibit tyrosinase (to reduce pigmentation), as well as firming and plumping extracts to reduce fine lines
Intensity Serum – Esse Intensity Serum offers a temporary reduction of wrinkles in only a few hours with its ability to relax facial muscle.
Probiotic Serum – Esse Probiotic Serum is the foundation of the range and is recommended for all clients starting on the Plus range. It contains one billion live probiotic microbes per millilitre to expedite the colonisation of healthy microbes on your skin.
Ageless Serum - Esse Ageless Serum shows a strong and lasting firming effect on ageing skin. It lifts and plumps with a series of new actives including Devil’s Claw and Kigelia.
Defence Moisturiser – Esse Defence Moisturiser is formulated to protect and feed normal skin, providing prebiotics, probiotic extracts, Hyaluronic Acid, Kigelia and Devil’sClaw.
Restorative Moisturiser – Esse Restorative Moisturiser offers a more intensive moisturising effect but the same basic array of actives as the Defence Moisturiser that strengthen barrier function, improve tight junctions and boost moisturisation.
I was able to try the Esse Toner and Eye Contour Cream; Esse Toner Plus contains the Esse Biome+ technology, a unique combination of scientific advances in probiotics, which improve the balance of beneficial microbes on the skin, to educate the skin’s immune system and improve barrier function. I like the fragrance of their products, and the spray bottle for the toner plus makes it fast and easy to use. It can be sprayed on throughout the day for that refreshing feel. I was also looking for a good eye cream when I found this one, so it is just perfect, I use it day and night hopefully to reduce fine lines and puffiness. So far so good. I love the cream texture that is not oily or sticky and it absorbs easily when I apply it with a light massage. Did you know, it contains Albizia julibrissin extract – This extract lifts the upper eyelid, reduces crow’s feet, and diminishes puffiness. It has been shown to improve collagen synthesis by 256% and elastin synthesis by 229%, helping to prevent the rupture of capillaries in the fragile networks below the eye. It also improves the appearance of wrinkles around the eye by between 14% and 33% in two weeks. By the way all the products are using glass bottles, it doesn’t only make it so premium but it’s necessary to protect the contents of the probiotics.
