Review: Essano Clear Complexion Range


This range controls Sebum levels, clean pores and ‘kicks imperfections to the curb’ as it says on Essano’s website. This range is aimed for younger & oily/breakout prone skin as well.


Clear Complexion Purifying Gel Cleanser

Link To Product

  • Soap-free
  • Scientifically formulated to cleanse, balance oily, young or congested skin, lift impurities, balance oil production & replenish moisture

Rosemary leaf combined with BioDtox to control oil levels without stripping the skin

The review:

I have tested out this cleanser for just over a week now. I did notice that at first I started to break out around my forehead (this could have been due to me changing my skincare routine). By the end of the week my skin looks visibly cleaner (is that a thing?) and those breakouts I briefly mentioned are gone. I do find that after using this cleanser my skin feels a little tight/dried out afterwards. Also I have noticed that my skin is a lot less oily than it was before trying out this range! I don’t even have to touch up my powder throughout the day.

The Review:

I have to say I didn’t test this product out as much as the others but I did try it out 2x a day for a few days. In all honesty I don’t know/couldn’t tell if this made any difference. I don’t really have an opinion on this product so I’m not going to do a full review on it. I definitely would agree that it is light and fast absorbing!

Clear Complexion Certified Organic Mist Toner

Link To Product

  • Balance and refresh skin with this light hydrating mist

Witch Hazel and Willow Bark work to clarify and refine pores, while soothing Green Tea and Chamomile calm and balance skin

The Review:

I absolutely love the smell of this toner!! I would say it is a fine-medium spritz, but a lot does come out. It is very refreshing and doesn’t leave spots of product on the skin. It also absorbs into the skin quite quickly. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a new affordable toner!

Clear Complexion Oil Control Moisturiser

Link To Product

  • Light & fast absorbing
  • Provides essential hydration and oil control
  • Shine free & matte finish
  • Formulated to balance oil production, revive and regenerate the skin and restore skins natural health and beauty

Innovative Probiotics stimulate skin renewal and deliver optimal skin balance

The Review:

I thoroughly enjoyed this moisturiser! A little definitely went a long way and worked wonders with hydrating my skin after the cleanser (as my skin felt like it was drying out from the cleanser) I would say it was more of a semi-matte finish and definitely controlled my oily skin throughout the day (of course with the use of the other products). Again because it’s super affordable I would recommend to anyone who has oily/breakout prone skin, just give it a go and see if it changes anything for you!

Clear Complexion Rapid Action Blemish Gel

Link To Product

  • Anti-Bacterial treatment
  • Designed to clear away bacteria that causes pimples
  • Formulated to visibly improve the appearance of blemishes and reduce inflammation and redness

Potent levels of Willow Bark, a natural form of Salicylic Acid, combined with BioDTox

The Review:

Again I didn’t really get to use this product because I didn’t really have any blemishes to warrant using it. From the couple of times I used it I couldn’t really tell if it had worked or not because I had put makeup on (oops). When I do start to breakout I will try it out some more but put it on over night and see if that makes any difference. I will keep you all updated on my instagram @kayla.aitken
