Natural Essentials: Dr Jackson’s 05 Face and Eye Essence

A couple of months ago, I asked a the lovely Liberty London team a question during their regular #libertybeauty chat sessions and won two amazing products by natural brand Dr. Jackson’s. Be sure to check out their twitter account for the details of the beauty chats or stop by the store in central London if you have the chance: Liberty is such a beautiful place to shop or simply wonder through for inspiration.

One of the products I received was the 05 Face and Eye Essence. I love the clean and simple aesthetic of the packaging, which fits well with Dr. Jackson’s ethical and natural approach to skincare. Essence sounds rather mysterious, so I was really looking forward to try this.

The 05 Face and Eye Essence is a light and refreshing formula containing Aloe, Rose Water, Baobab, Chamomile and Kigelia. It is meant to nourish and refresh sensitive skin. The glass jar contains 50 ml and retails for £60, making this a high end natural skincare product. It can be used as a treatment, but I have been loving it over a tiny bit of serum in the morning.

I love the texture of the essence: I would describe it as a very light gel that sinks in almost immediately but does leave your skin feeling properly hydrated. This is what makes it such a great day cream for me: there’s is no need to allow a lot of time for the cream to settle and you can continue with the rest of your base almost immediately, but the essence is still hydrating enough for normal to dry skin.

This essence has been a staple product in my current skincare routine: it combines very well with other product and really soothes my sensitive skin. The gel-like texture spreads out well, meaning you don’t need much and the product will last a good while. Have you ever tried Dr. Jackon’s? Do let me know! And stay tuned for my review of the 03 Face Oil in a couple of weeks.


Een paar maanden terug stelde ik het leuke Liberty London team een vraag tijdens hun #libertybeauty chat sessie en won twee mooie producten van natuurlijk merk Dr. Jackson’s. Kijk zeker eens op hun twitter account voor de details van de beauty chats en ga zeker eens langs de winkel als je in Londen bent: Liberty is zo’n mooie plek om te winkelen of simpelweg inspiratie op te doen.

Een van de producten die ik ontving was de 05 Face and Eye Essence. Ik vind de simpele en duidelijke verpakking erg mooi, past zeker goed bij de verantwoorde aanpak van Dr. Jackson’s. Essence klinkt ook nog eens heel mysterieus, dus ik had echt zin om dit product te proberen.

De 05 Face and Eye Essence is een lichte en verfrissende formule met Aloe Vera, Rozenwater, Baobab, Kamille en Kigelia. Het product is bedoelt om de gevoelige huid te voeden en verfrissen. Het glazen potje bevat 50 ml en kost ongeveer €80, dus dit merk is echt een onderdeel van de luxe trend in natuurlijke huidverzorging. Het kan worden gebruikt als een treatment onder een creme, maar ik vind het ook erg prettig om over een serum heen te smeren in de ochtend.

De textuur van de essence is echt super: ik zou het omschrijven als een lichte gel die heel snel intrekt maar je gezicht wel gevoed achterlaat. Daarom is het voor mij echt een super dagcreme: je hoeft de creme maar heel kort in te laten trekken en kunt bijna gelijk door met de rest van je make up, maar het product is wel hydrterend genoeg voor de normale tot droge huid.

Deze Face and Eye Essence is echt een basis product in mijn huidige huidverzorgings-routine: het combineert heel goed met andere producten en kalmeert mijn gevoelige huid. De gel-achtige textuur verspreid makkelijk over je gezicht dus het product is heel zuinig in gebruik. Heb jij wel eens iets van Dr. Jackson’s geprobeerd? Laat het me weten! Mijn review van de 03 Face Oil komt er ook aan als je nieuwsgierig geworden bent naar dit merk.

    I’d love to shop at Liberty – their prints are so beautiful.
    The texture of these essences look great – I love lightweight products that still delivery a good amount of hydration. I’ve never heard of Dr. Jackson’s – seems it’s a UK based brand.

      I always have to stop and wonder through Liberty whenever I am in london: such a lovely store.
      It is a UK based brand and quite new at that, but I think they have some great stuff and will probably expand soon.
