ESPA Optimal Skin Pro-Cleanser


Just the thing for post-holiday skin. Or anytime skin has the 'blahs', actually.

This deliciously-scented (with orange blossom) cleanser from ESPA ticks absolutely all our cleanser boxes – and then some. A balm-style product, it also features teeny, rounded exfoliating grains to buff skin smooth – great for getting rid of dry, dusty cells that seem to appear on the complexion the minute you step off the plane, home from a hot country.

Leave it on, though – for up to 15 minutes, twice a week – and it works as a nourishing and brightening mask, thanks to the pumpkin enzymes in the blend (which work to very gently 'dissolve' dead cells), alongside moringa seed extract, avocado and sunflower oils.

Can we just add how much we're loving ESPA's new, streamlined look, too? As lovely on the bathroom shelf as it is to use.
