    I almost forgot how much I love this product. The scent is glorious, it absorbs quickly and leaves my skin with a soft glow. Layers beautifully under my moisturiser and makeup. I have rosacea and it doesn’t irritate my skin.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
