The Essano Clear range is great for oily skin and this moisturiser is no exception. With its gel like texture it's absorbed quickly into your skin leaving a matte finish and no greasy residue or shiny surface. I used this moisturiser day and night for approximately a year in conjunction with the Essano Clear Cleanser and in that time my skin was clear and I noticed an improvement in the amount of oil on the skin surface. When I hit 50 recently suddenly my lifetime problem of oily skin disappeared so I know use different moisturisers, but I still highly recommend this moisturiser for anyone with an oily skin issue. Essano is NZ made, cruelty free and contains no nasty chemicals...I love that!

I usually use simple spotless moisturiser but I find it annoying as lots of supermarkets don't sell it so I have to hunt it down, so I decided to see how this went and possibly replace the simple one.
It was on special for $13 which is a great price. I find the cardboard box unnecessary as it goes straight in the recycling bin. It comes in a pink 75ml tube with a flip top. The consistency is like a gel but also creamy. It has a subtle vanilla scent.
I have dry skin but hate moisturisers which feel sticky and leave my face shiny, hence why I purchased this. It spreads amazingly, you only need a tiny amount.
It dries super fast on my face and my makeup applies smoothly. I use this in the morning only and it gives me sufficient hydration throughout the day. I get no irritation or redness. Doesn't cause breakouts and has kept my skin clear.
This is a lovely moisturiser which gives me matte skin as stated. Look for it when on special. A tube lasts ages. No nasty ingredients, cruelty free and made in NZ :-)
I really enjoy using this moisturiser. I have only recently realised I super sensitive skin, and products with SLS's and Parabens send my skin in a tizz. I really struggled finding products that I could try out within my price range. I am happy to buy a relatively pricey product, but not until I know that it works.
This moisturiser is great! Its within my price range and its gentle enough for my skin and it is made of all natural ingredients with no nasties!
It is a gel type moisturiser which is really nice and soft. Smells delicious, sort of like pears an vanilla, but not overpowering.
The moisturiser soaks into my skin pretty quick and I can fell my skin is so much softer and smoother now that I am using it.
I love that it has the probiotics in it. There are no other probiotic moisturisers I have found around, and from my internet research/Doctor Google, probiotic moisturisers are great for skin like mine so that is another big tick in its favour.
I highly recommend using this moisturiser and since trying it, it has become a staple in my regime.
Tips: This comes in a great range with a cleanser, toner mist and blemish gel. I've heard there is something else as well, but I haven't managed to find that. So use them all for best results!
Was dubious as so many other oil control or mattifying moisturisers ( and I have a cupboard full of them) really do nothing for my oilslick of a face but this product really helped control my oil! I get hot,sweaty and oily at my work and usually a few hours in feel like I need to shower my face! With this product I really felt it was the most under control my oil production has ever been. Well priced and will definitely buy again,
Tips: Little goes a long way with this great gel-cream
Honestly, there's not much to say about this! It's a moisturiser, a little too thin for my skin's dry patches, but it'll be nice and light for super hot days. It does feel a touch too watery to lock in any moisture on the skin, but seeing as it's designed for oily skin then this probably won't be an issue for most people. I never buy products marketed solely on the fact that they're ~natural~ and no ~harsh chemical sulphates~ because literally everything is a chemical. This product isn't any more special than other moisturisers I've tried. The only thing I haven't seen yet in a moisturiser is the inclusion of probiotic lysate (Lactobacillus ferment,) which is actually beneficial and based in solid science, and makes sense. Yay science!
My skin felt soft after use but definitely not moisturised, and needed rehydration throughout the day - so it wasn't my favourite. I much prefer my Clean and Clear moisturiser, but I'll finish the tube of this as the days get hotter.
I think this product might be my favourite part of the whole collection. I wasn't sure that I would like a gel moisturiser, but I found it to be really nourishing.
It makes my skin feel really soft, and isn't greasy. You don't need to use much which is great, it spreads out so easily and sinks in fast. I've used cream moisturisers the most in the past, so the formula of a gel moisturiser was really different. I expected it to be awful and drying but it was the complete opposite.
After applying it in the morning, at the end of the day my skin is still really soft and moisturised - even after a long day at work.
My skin is so much smoother after using it every day, and I have so much less acne than I did before I started using these products. I think that this moisturiser is one that has helped the most, and I will continue to buy this when I run out of my current one. I've even planned to buy some of these products as Christmas gifts!
Tips: Apply a small amount and spread it on your face and neck, morning and night.
I have been using a Cetaphil moisturiser prior to this one and it leaves my skin hydrated, but also sticky and shiny. I found the promise of a hydrating moisturiser with a matte finish incredibly promising as this is just the kind of product I have been looking for.
The moisturiser is brilliant in the way it is light and non-greasy. Once applied it is readily absorbed into the skin without leaving too much of a greasy residue which I found was a great improvement on my previous moisturiser.
I did find that it didn't really make my skin look matte, but I used it after the toner which could be the reason why. It also isn't a great base under makeup as applying primer and foundation over the top makes it rub off so I also used it at night.
Overall, this is a pretty good moisturiser, and I am definitely going to use it until it's finished as it gets the job done and doesn't make my skin feel as greasy as my last moisturiser. However, I wasn't overwhelmed with its matte-making abilities so will probably not buy it again.
Tips: Don't rub it in too hard as it is very easily absorbed, just lightly swipe it across your skin for the best effect.
This moisturizer was really nice, although it wasn't anything spectacular, I think its a nice moisturizer that is easily available and I would use this again.
The moisturizer comes in a basic squeeze tube. But it matches the rest of the line and is quiet pretty.
The moisturizer itself is a thick gel formula, I found that did need a little more of this than my typical moisturizer. This was really lightweight on the skin and did absorb quickly. I found my skin was sufficiently moisturized and it did help control my oil. Overall I think this is a very nice moisturizer and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good supermarket moisturizer.
Tips: For best results use with the rest of the Essano clear complexion line. Would also work nicely as a stand alone product
I trialled this moisturiser when BR gave me the whole Essano Clear Complexion range to try!
This product has an interesting scent (fruity baby food is how I've described it to friends) and an interesting (almost lumpy) texture. That might not be for everyone but I actually really like it. It's definitely different from other moisturisers that I've used.
I like to use a moisturiser under my makeup each day. This moisturiser is really good for that as it doesn't stick to my foundation or clump like I've had with other brands. I will say that when it's sinking into your skin, it does give off a little bit of that "tight" feeling, but it has only been a fleeting feeling for me and otherwise it's felt great all day long!
I would recommend this moisturiser as a great everyday moisturiser that is made up of great ingredients. :)
I love how this range is organic.
The moisturiser helps to make my skin feel nice and hydrated while moisturising and controlling oil. I have sensitive skin and it hasn’t made me break out or react which is good!
It doesn’t really have a smell to it so it is good for sensitive skin as some perfumes can be irritating.
A little goes a long way and it soaks quite quickly into my skin.
I definitely will keep using this!
