Hi there, I just wanted to say that for the past 5 years I have suffered from flare ups with rosacea. I have tried so many products and spent an absolute fortune. I stumbled across your website last week and ordered the sample kit for rosacea as i was going through a bad flare up. The improvement in my skin after using your products has been amazing - it hasnt been this clear in such a long time and I am so happy how much calmer my face is. Thank you for this. I will definately be purchasing the full size bottles on pay day! Fantastic products and I will definately be recommending your company. Many Thanks

I'm so happy I found you lovely guys, will be a customer for always as my skin has never felt so good!

I went to the Hair and Beauty show on Sunday and started using the kit I bought , my friend came to work today , I did not tell her that I had been and she commented on how nice my skin was looking with using the below products for 2 days , can’t wait to see the results in a month :

I have directed her to your website to buy your products as well :


Just to thank you for the samples for my grandad - they arrived on Thursday.

Grandad was overwhelmed that you took an interest in him (he's feeling a bit dejected in general, so this cheered him up no end, plus the prospect of relief from all his skin troubles).

He loves the Therapeutics cream that I'd already given him to try - it makes him a little bit pink when he's applied it, but is very soothing (and no tingling/ irritation).

He tried the sensitive cream (& I've ordered him the full size version to have on his table) as he liked it too.


I just love all the Natural Eliments products!! My skin is glowing wrinkles look less around the eyes too. The whole family use it teen son uses my facial wash for all skins n then the spot cream moisturiser . Younger son I use the uv oil no7 and it keeps eczema at bay.. I use in oil every day . And use the face oil n blending cream along with the serum once a week. Husband loves the shave oil . Brilliant products need more organic products like this than all the cancer causing junk that's been sold and conning people into believing it's good

You sent me some samples.  I am in Skin Heaven!  I have tried everything: Sunday Riley, Perricone, Crème de la Mer, Dr Sebagh, and all the Department Store brands and you beat them all hands down.  The oils are a joy to use and my skin is lapping them up
I wanted to let you know that a troublesome mole of mine has improved so dramatically that it has almost disappeared with the use of your oils.
I have used your creams and lotions for 10 years and at 45 people consider that I am in my 20's - thank you so much!
My 10 year old daughter has fair skin and I am using your oil on her religiously.
Thank you for keeping us safe.

“I love the products so far and will never use anything else. Before I started with these I had lost hope that  I would ever have clear skin again. I recommend the products to everyone! !


I recently got one of your sets, I think it was called Karen's Kit? I am very pleased with it. My skin never feels dry or tight, and the luxury oil is just what it says.
HI JOHN Hope you're well. 
I have been using you and only your products in my salon since it opened in June and the results have been amazing. The anti cellulite wrap especially so. One repeat client yesterday said she lost six pounds in the three days following the treatment and instantly noticed her clothes were loser.
I am very interested in coming to one of your events for mitochondrial decay facials. Could you please send me details of venue and times.
Keep up the good work guys.

We are moving to larger premises on the 15th September. Please note the new address on my files. 176 station street. Above Top Cut hairdressers. Burton on Trent. Staffordshire. De14 1bn. 

Many thanks

Hi John

I just want to thank you for transforming my skincare routine, in fact creating one, because after years of being disappointed and suffering with terrible outbreaks on my skin I gave up and only used warm water.

I now use the face wash, 10 years younger oil/cream combo, natural deodorant, shampoo/body wash and sensitive body moisturiser. Oh and the spot serum is amazing and has become a staple in my team at work for any breakout, including a remedy for a nasty spider bite!!!

I also now only use the sensitive body wash for my two boys who have been given various creams and bath products for ‘eczema’ on the inside of their elbows. Although once I stopped using Johnsons delicate baby wash on them it disappeared, funny that??

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you and keep up the good work.

One last point, a girl on my team went to the body shop yesterday and bought a lot of different things and was glowing about how natural and organic they are, I actually laughed in her face, which didn’t go down too well, oh dear. She then proceeded to tell me that whenever she uses their cocoa butter it makes her shivery like she’s coming down with a cold!!

Many thanks for the samples that you sent. I have found them excellent and have now made an order. I have used the facial oil and the moisturising cream and neither have caused an adverse reaction. Both have had a positive effect.

I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely love the products, the oily and spot range has made a huge change in my skin already, in just under a week my acne has calmed down and almost cleared and my face feels so soft! even my partner has noticed the difference. I am thrilled to bits and have just ordered the kill em dead spot kit and free sponge from your website.

I have actually taken before and after shots of my skin so I could see the difference myself and I am so happy! 

I will be recommending your products to all my friends and family.

Thanks again John for all your help and advice.

I suffered from seborrheoic dermatitis on my face for a year. It stopped when I started to use your Therapeutics range. I am still a loyal and grateful customer.

I have just placed an order online,can you send me a couple of samples of each of the facial oils as more and more of my clients are wanting to try it now and more are using it.My sister from Africa had a facial out there last week and for the first time in fifteen years they did no extraction as her skin was good she has used the revital for a month thought you would like to know you can tell John and she is fussy!

I thought you MIGHT! like to know that a friend I haven't seen for 8 years or so has come back into my life and said but you look younger now than when we first met.So I told her what I had been using.My skin has defiantly improved since I found your products.

Also the video link with the demonstration of how to use the products is very helpful.

Can I just say I have always used your products since it must be the late 1990's and recommend them to everyone. I seem to be getting more compliments about my skin the older I get. A massive thank you for great advice always.  (This lady has been a beauty therapist for 15 years her father invented the No1 beauty machine treatment now seen in today’s salons)
Just wanted to let you know how pleased i am with the products i have purchased. My skin is clear, smooth and has a lovely healthy glow.
Am i right in assuming that they can be used on the eye area aswell? as this is an area of concern for me. And also what products do you have to help with under eye and upper cheek puffyiness?
Samples arrived today had not tried them yet but they smell gorgeous. Body oil I ordered very , very good. Thank you will be ordering full sizes. Ann


I am so impressed by this new product. 6 months ago I developed an eczema like rash on my face. I was given a steroid cream by my doctor but was unhappy using it and the rash tended to move around. I tried a few other products that made little difference and then I started using your new Gell. There was an immediate improvement and the problem after two weeks has pretty much disappeared. Thank you so much.
Thank you I look forward to receiving it and even better using it, my skin is so much better since I have been using your products . I wouldn't go back to putting anything else on my face. So a big thank you to you

I was just scrolling through your facebook page where I added a comment about recommending your products in July. You kindly responded saying ping you an email and you would send a voucher which was lovely!

I don't know if you'll remember but we met at the Girls Day Out Show in Glasgow in 2010. I was a touch sceptical but you said definitely you could cure my visible acne problem.

I must admit I'm slightly evangelical about your products these days because boy, you were absolutely right. I now have about 6 friends using the regime and I was so pleased that you lived up to my endorsement when I told my friend Mrs Anne Cherrie to email you with her skin concerns because you would answer very quickly. You did, she tried the samples, she ordered and she texted me this morning to say wow her skin feels amazing.

I also take the opportunity to advocate your products to my Miss Scotland contestants each year and I know of 2 who have tried (and are still using) the range.

The reason I am so pushy with my friends and acquaintances? You were right. My acne cleared in 3 weeks, I have no fine lines (I'm 45). My skin feels amazing. I can go out make up free (except for a slick of mascara - I am a girl after all). And the routine is soooo sooo simple with just 3 products.

Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your products have given me back my confidence and it's only with good skin that I realise how much confidence I had lost.

I shall continue to spread the word because after all, an endorsement from someone is worth however many pounds spent on an advertising campaign. We women know we're worth it, we don't need some girl on the telly to tell us!

Just wanted to say I got the replacement oil instead of the almond a few days ago - it is absolutely beautiful, think I might even prefer it to the therapeutics cream - well done on another fabulous product that works .

I have over the years used all the brands even the most expensive Decleor, Liz earl, elemis etc
and I can’t believe the difference to my skin 
I had premature ageing, skin cancer, rasher etc that’s all gone now using our products
I researched your web site on line got samples and has been amazed at just how different they are 

Hi Karen
 the routine is going brilliantly, skin has settled down and is calm and clear i absolutely love the oil - so glad we spoke all those weeks ago.
Thank you 

Dear John,
I have been using the essentially yours range for rosacea for quite a while now which is doing well. I have mild rosacea which is food related also so not too bad really. Im looking for a better mosturiser though as my skin is very dry. At present i cleanse, tone, moisturise then apply rosehip oil too but my skin gets dry very quickly. If my skin is a bit 'flushy' then i will use jojoba oil. What would you suggest for a good moisturiser that lasts longer on my skin?
Hi ok its very important to only use the following, nothing else because raw un- blended oils can be too harsh for the skin, it’s about a fine balance and by adding in your own you could be pushing the ph of the skin to far the other way .
Also the oils you will be using may well be adulterated where ours are unadulterated i.e. basically more purer, the consumer can’t usually buy unadulterated oils directly we have to get then specially imported 

It’s not to say that the oils your using are not good but why are you still getting dry skin when using them ....this simple should not be happening 

Ideally try this 

Remove make up : use the dry skin face wash and cleanser together to do this, because you get the power of the wash to really cleanse the skin and the hydrating of the cleanser.
Stop using the toner or use once a week only, toners are astringent and this is not the best to be using on rosacea, even ours without all the chemicals and alcohol still could be drying to the skin.

Now every morning apply on damp skin our luxury facial oils ( if you have not got any e mail your address to send a sample to make sure your ok with it) so put the oil on damp skin then apply the dry skin moisturiser on top, then
make- up on top, once it has gone in to a matt finish which may take a few minutes and if you use to much ( i.e. you don ‘t need much at all) and it’s not going into the skin just dab off excess.

Your skin is now 100% hydrated and should stay like that all day if not then the skin absorbing it fast in which case you need to persevere until it restores to a neutral ph , this may take a few weeks of this to lift it to what your natural ph is or if you find it’s not going in then your skin is blocked and this gets a little tricky because you need to use a exfoliating lotion ( dry skin one ) in the shower once a week to get the surface clear 
now this is about being soft on the skin, the scrub partials are very soft because they are a hydrogenated jojoba oil but it’s easy to overly use i.e. press to hard and for too long when you have sensitive skin .

At night again use the oil and moisturiser on top and you should lift the hydration levels in the skin .

Don’t use anything else, wipes soaps , spf’s etc and if you find your shampoo running down you face then change that as well 99% of them are very harsh chemicals and stripping to the natural oils in the skin. 

Keep your other oils for the body ie oily bath is good with them or after showring use as body oils on again damp skin ,reaily they need to be expertly blended and deluted befor using on the face

Ok great, didnt know that about the oils and also about putting oil on before moisturiser. Thank you. Could you please send a sample of the oil? Its great to have a contact that can advise me on such tricky skin, ive been using products from essentially yours for years now. 
Thank you and Happy new year to you.

I hope that you are well? I received my sample kit and was so happy with the improvement I have seen with my skin that I ordered the full range!

My face is still a little red however, it's no where near as angry looking as it has been in the past. I have certainly witnessed an improvement!

Thank you for your advice.
I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the Fragrance Free shampoo I have purchased from your site. I have had problems for years with my scalp due to the chemicals and frangrances that are used in high street shampoo. It is incredablly difficult to find fragrance free products so I was really pleased to finally find somewhere that sold exactly what I wanted! I have used four bottles of shampoo now and I have had no problems. I have also purchased some conditioner although I actually find that the shampoo leaves my hair in such good condition that I don't need the conditioner very often. I find the shampoo cleanses well and I will definitely be ordering some more! 
Just wanted to say thanks for the offers via email, much appreciated
at this time of year and in this economic climate. I am certainly not
your highest spending customer but have enjoyed your products for a
few years now and the offers make a big difference. Hope business is
going OK for you.
Make sure you register on the web site to get the offers we e mail out !

Thank you very much for your prompt response. I have to say that your customer service is second to none. In 2 years of purchasing from you not only is my skin in amazing condition but I have only had two ordering problems and on both occasions you have responded quickly and efficiently.

I really do appreciate this and I shall continue recommending you whenever I can.

Once again, many thanks
Hi John, Just wanted to thank you for the samples you sent me, I have been using them for about 4 weeks now and I can't believe the differance in my skin, it is so much clearer and best of all it is not flaring up with hot flushing, I have just ordered full size bottles of the cleanser, holistic oil and face wash, as I still have samples of the other stuff left, I just wondered how long to use the fragrance free products before moving to the other stuff, and what to move on to?
after searching the web for natural products with the leaping bunny that help with rosacea I found you.
I ordered the rosacea sample kit ( I am using the luxury facial oil, the moisturizer and the face wash, not the face cleanser as it gave my skin a burning sensation and the spot serum where it is needed) and my skin did not react in a crazy way, hurray. 
I just realize that the skin seems to like more moisture. Especially around the eyes the skin seems to develop more fine lines. What facial oil or cream might be a good addition to the luxury facial oil?  A
Ok it’s a case of try the different oils we have and see what suits you best, let me have your address and I will send samples and the eye cream as well, always apply the oils on damp skin ( even on the eye lid areas) then the cream on top of the oil not only does this give you a higher protection to the elements but forces the oil in which is what you want. Now all of this is great for protecting from UVA light (i.e. what sunscreen don’t protect from they only reflect the UVB light) so your still absorbing the very damaging UVA And what can I do for sun protection? I read and actually already know about the bad oxides in sun screens. But I just see a bit of sunlight and do start to get red. What could I use? I have read about the sweet almond oil and was recommended as well using grapeseed oil as sun protector- could you give me some advice please? Ok hopefully we will still get the odd sunny day before winter try using a little almond oil on the skin, (again will put a sample in) and go in the sun for about 20-30mins and see what happens you may still go red but then over night see if any melanin comes through i.e. the red turns to a very light tan if it does great your changing how it reacts in the sun 
Ps as you are very sensitive try patch testing the oils on the arm first to see if any reactions 

A little description of my skin: I do have extreme sensitive facial skin that is mostly dry but can be oily in the T - zone in combination with dryness on the nose and forehead- does this make sense to you? Yes your skin completely out of balance i.e. the ph in one area is different to another 

Since I am a child I suffer from Ichtiosis- it is not painful but often annoying especially when I wear short sleeves and can peel my skin off.
I am fair haired and have very light skin- any sun exposure can be a desaster if I am not with hat and long sleeves and trousers- You can guess I never sun bathe and therefore am not keen on swimming in the sea or an outdoor pool, but I cycle to work and cannot "hide" from the sun.
As a teenager I did never suffer from akne but for ca 10 years now the spots are getting worse and painful. And in addition to that I got now scars from not being able to leave my skin in peace-grr. As well I was told to have rosacea, not too bad but the problem is there with the constant inflammation. 
I do not use any make up but it would be nice to cover the scars and the spots up- preferably with a pouwder. Can you recommend a product- the one I am using at the moment covers nicely (Jane Iredale) but is full of oxides as well, so a bad choice.
Oh, and my skin is 39 years old. 
A Ok the skin is a living breathing absorbing organic it’s also the outer area which gets the most abuse the fact is nearly everyone with skin problems simple don’t look after their skin and it’s not help by 99% of products being full of irritating drying chemical which strip the natural oils out. #In 2009 there was around 2m uk people with skin problems now its over30m everybody has something with sensitivity or extremely dry skin but all in all if they did the right thing and used the right products the simple fact they would not have problems .

So what’s for you well I’m you fitness instructor but for skin, do as I say and I will get it fit and healthy 

Do not ever ever use anything with harsh chemicals shower gels, lotions, shampoos etc etc yes when out you have to use a chemical soap in the bathrooms but that's it. I’m totally fanatical about using only naturals and it pays off with healthy youth full skin and hair.
This is what I recommend 
You must get oils and water into the skin and trap it in so lots of oily baths ( not with baby oil that’s petrol chemicals use our natural oils ) 
And after every shower (and you should be using our shower gels) take our seaweed body lotions and apply on the skin after every time the skin gets wet 
Up the oil level in it by squirting more oil onto the hand and mixing with the lotion/ as said before always apply the oils or creams on damp skin .
You need to be doing this all the time this pay off by altering the ph of teh skin and it may take time but will repair better than anything .
There was a leading cancer specialist who recently said he would rather give olive oil then a £10,000 drug to his patients why because natural oils carry with the incredible benefits ( see attachments) and that’s what our products are made with and why they can make a diffrance . 

I have put in some other things about free radicals and what protects you from them and it s antioxidants which only come from natural oils 
regards john Essentially yours

I am a very recent user of your products but Wow they are fantastic! I shall be putting in another order before the 18th!!
I am hoping that you can suggest creams, washes for my son-in-law who has terrible eczema on his hands. He only has to try and undo a new jar lid and his hands crack and bleed. He has tried most creams etc and nothing works! He does not seem to have it anywhere else on his body but his hands look so sore and painful all the time and I would love to be able to help him ( with your help of course!)
Hi thank for feedback that’s great .
I think he need to be using our hand wash only afterwards apply the therapeutic cream and then non harsh chemical shower gels/ shampoos and hair grooming products if he uses them, all which will be contributing to the problems 
Also sounds like he may have used steroid creams and thinned the skin as well.

A lot of people blame different things for skin problems but after 12 years of seeing / given advise / reply to hundreds of e mails every day on the subject 99% of it is because of chemicals, yes there is a small amount related to stress but then the chemical are there as well .

So by not having the harsh chemicals on the skin/ body repair system trying to cope with them if you stop coming in contact the skin clears up 
It’s as simple as that

Hi John,
I have had great success with your products for Excema and Psoriasis. I have a friend who suffers from recurring cellulitis of the leg. Have you had any feedback from people who have had this condition and it has improved by using non petro chemical products such as you sell att Essentially Yours.
answer ....Hi yes we have 
1 the body polish and bamboo mitt use this in the shower on areas 1-2 times a week,
2...the body firming gel this is a cellulite buster and super if used after the body polish 1-2 times a month ( do not use teh body polish in the shower this time) 
You would apply the gel ‘a good amount’ on areas and then place on top cling film to trap in the gel (no need to wrap) and sit around for a minimum of 45 mins, you can actually walk around etc just keep on for min 45 mins the longer the better the surface will get very cold afterward most of it should have gone in then apply a little of the seaweed body lotion 

Now all of these and more 4 products are in a kit which is phenomenal value 
In the kit are the sea body lotion and grapefruit shower gel as well after showering always apply the body lotion on damp skin . 

The firming gel/body polish are salon products and used as a cellulite treatment and work fantisticly, how/why they work I have put in a attchemnt explaning

I'd just like to say thank you, my samples have arrived!
I have already used the luxury facial massage oil and the rejuvenating day serum and I am very impressed.
I bought your Kill'em Dead Spot Kit for my son and its seems to be really working on his skin. However he seems to have nearly used up the Spot Serum but still has lots of the face wash & moisturiser left. Can I purchase the Sport Serum separately?

'yes it's in oily range page' regards ess yours 

Hi would you please send me a sample of your Restoring eye gel and your Nourishing eye cream. I am 54 years old and have just started to use your products… the acne roseacea sample kit and the anti-ageing sample kit. I have had acne for over thirty years and using the harsh medicated creams had dried my skin so much it was like parchment with furrows, not lines form my eyes to my chin. Since using your products, what a difference, had two compliments about my skin…..first time in over thirty years, blackheads have gone, only a few blocked pores left ( about five ) and lines are markedly reduced. I was very dubious about using oils as my skin was so greasy, but it just feels soft and there is not one shiny patch. I thought I would break out in a mass of spots but not had one. I wish I had known about you decades ago…I have been in total despair about my face and Doctors just don’t care. An added bonus is that the blepharitis I have had for years has gone….. I can’t thank you enough. Does your eye make up remover work on waterproof mascara ?
A :no but any of the facuals oils do ! ess yours 
I would like to thank you for dealing with the order, I received my items right in time when I came back from my holidays. Many thanks for generous gifts too.
I would like to say few good words about why I am using your products -- first of all this is really natural skin care range, not like many others - chemical products containing essential oils. 
I am using fragrance free range for about 10 months now. However I noticed the difference within few weeks since I started using your cosmetics. You were recommended to me by my beautician. My problem was that I could not find a skincare regime that would work for me: my skin is generally sensitive, prone to redness (I mean my cheeks and nose were really red, I would not open the door for the postman when wearing no makeup!), I also have few broken blood vessels on my cheeks and nose, the skin was always dehydrated, peeling, shiny and oily in areas, no moisturiser got absorbed, my face was never matt, and blocked pores on top of that.

Since I started using Essentially Yours Fragrance Free range everything has changed: no blocked pores, redness significantly reduced (sometimes I would wear no makeup at all), and the moisturiser gets fully absorbed, no film left on the face and skin is looking matt! That has never happened before! I also started using mineral makeup only ((I use brand that has no bismuth in their products and they also encourage seeking for natural skincare). The Essentially Yours face wash is brilliant too, it removes all makeup and does not dry out. I don't know how you do it at Essentially Yours, but keep it up!!
Many thanks, 
Many many thanks for your brilliant products and fast delivery. 
Testimonial - Therapetics Range for Excema and Psoriasis

Just wanted to let you know that I have had chronic skin problems all my life and since using the products from the Therapeutic range for Excema I have seen an amazing improvement. I have never had such soft and smooth skin as I have now . My excema is 100% healed using the products.Thanks so much for the advice given and I am recommending the Therapeutics range to many friends who also have skin conditions.

Testimonial - Sweet Almond Oil

Also on recommendation I used Sweet Almond Oil for the first time this summer when in Cyprus. As the testimonials have stated, I did not burn once and have a deep coloured tan as a result. Also my skin is in such good condition with using the sweet almond oil daily. I can highly recommend this product if you are exposing your skin to the sun.

Dear John
Firstly, let me say that I am really enjoying, AND seeing palpable results after a month's usage of your products.The facial products are superb and the Wish shampoo and conditioner is excellent. My hairdresser commented on how great my hair was feeling and looking last week.

I have been trying a few to try and get the best combination but could do with a little additional advice?

I have just turned 50 and have always had a combination type skin which has become drier throughout my 40s. I also have rosacea (so did my mum) but its not a problem. I have been told (just recently) that I look late 30s/early 40s - so something must be working :-) ! ok the best for this is the dry range , moisturiser/ cleanser but as you have comb skin may be the face wash more than the cleanser ( even mix them to cleanse with) it just the dry range has the right oils for rosacea 
Good diet, no smoking and very regular exercise I think. All good My only vice being a glass or two of wine. O that’s nothing at all I live in rural Devon, have horses, dogs and am a very outdoor person, so Winter is challenging as my skin gets even drier. I also frequently have to be in an office environment so again - very drying; air conditioning in the Summer, and heating on full blast in the Winter!
Yes this is a bit problem but when you decide which facial oil then apply this on the skin massage in then the moisturiser on top 1-2 times a week apply on damp skin , this will weather proof the skin i.e. protects you from teh sun in summer and then the harsh weather in winter on very sunny or very cold days apply more oil and cream to up the level on the skin. 

I have been using your regenerating facial oil having originally started off with your combo (facial oil for fine lines plus your rejuvenating day serum. I have also just started using your geranium and lavander moisturiser and as I'm a wash and go girl, your aloe vera and lavender face wash. Ok you have answer most of last comments right away other than maybe a little of teh cleanser as well on the hand as well as the wash would help I have been trying several of your eye treatments, and the jury is still out as to what is the best. I went back to your facial oil for fine lines (at night) the other day and the results were noticeable! So I'm wondering if that would be the better combination for me? The luxury facial oil and the moisturiser for dry skin? And for the eyes the nourushing eye cream and under eye firming serum? Or am I using too much? No not at all I have always said revolving them and on damp skin is the best way ‘
Also a scrub in the shower ( exfoliating lotion) once a week is a good way to keep the skin free from dead skin 

I welcome any advice you could give and please feel free to use any of my mail as an endorsement for your website. Thank you 

From one of our user's/ disciples in Hong Kong to someone she knows 
Hi Jenna,

Yes...using the products as suggested is a first recommendation...do let me know soonest as to how things develop.

This is what makes the products so marvellous (and interesting) in that if there are initial "hiccups" they can be sorted out by gleaning more information and then trial and error.

Aveda scores a high hazard No. 8 (and they are owned by Estee Lauder who score similarly!!) on the cosmetics database known as Skin Deep.
Have you heard of this organisation..it was initiated by the EWG (Environmental Working Group in USA) and they assess products they are investigating by a 0-10 score:-

0-2 = low hazard
3-6 = moderate hazard
7-10 = high hazard

Companies do not need to use any nasty ingredients as proven by the products formulated by our company.....they do so because it is cheaper and the fact that they can!!! There is no legislation to stop them. A product can be called natural or organic if it has only ONE ingredient that is natural or organic - this is so invidious. Therefore, when you see a product with lots of ingredients be wary!! It means that the company often (purely for reasons of economy and avoiding a change in the whole formulation) adds extra ingredients to offset a problem identified with an existing ingredient. However, the addition of something new often throws up yet another problem when the new ingredient argues with a different existing ingredient and so the list does on........do hope this makes sense. More than 99% of the skin care products on the market contain "nasties". 

this  company ( ie essentially yours)  is founded and run by a group of scientists and cosmetologists with a huge wealth of knowledge on what we should/should not put on our skin and borne of the fact that large and established companies, when approached many years ago, turned their back on the invitation to make their products safer.....so the said group set up Essentially Yours. We serve as a "wake-up" call to inform the public at large of the dangers in using certain branded products who use petro-chemicals and other nasty, unhealthy ingredients and to offer an alternative - the chance of beautiful skin....naturally and healthily. 
My mother was a very contented user of Clarins for most of her life...in the few years before she died in 2009 she had the most dreadful skin cancers on her face...and only on her face!!! Clarins amongst other big brand names use petrochemicals.....E-Y is proof positive that they do not need to!!!

Sorry if I have bombarded you from my "soap box" - it makes me so angry as most big brand names are expensive too.
With Best Wishes,


I ordered some face cream from you earlier in the year for my daughter's stress eczema which worked wonderfully. Would you be kind enough to send a sample of your nourishing eye cream as she has some redness and flaking on her eyelids and between her eyes, is it ok for this?
After years of trying every conditioner going to avoid the preservatives that I am allergic to I have finally found one that actually conditions my overprocessed, tired hair.
many thanks
I’d like to start by saying how delighted I am with all the products, and with your helpful advice.
My skin is looking so much better generally. I have had some spots, but overall my pores look smaller, and blackhead are disappearing.
It took a bit of a deep breath to order so much stuff over the internet, but the bottles are really large and I need only a little bit of everything, so I think your range represents really excellent value for money.
Add to that the pleasure of using such beautifully scented products, the knowledge that they are based on sound ingredients and principles, and an ethos I can support – just love it all!
I will soon be ordering some more of the toner (possibly my favourite product?) and I would like a suggestion for an eye cream or gel. 
I often have to get up very early in the morning for work, and my eyes feel tight and look creased in the skin around. I would like something that will refresh and not leave a “film”. I don’t wear eye makeup in the mornings, so wouldn’t need to go under that.
Looking forward to hearing from you again – 
Best wishes
Hi thank you for your e mail and kind comments 
Eye products are 
Nourishing eye cream for lines wrinkles 
Restoring eye gel for tired dark circles ( note no anti ageing in this as such)
You would need to try them to see what’s best will send some samples 

I have added you to my Christmas card list John!
Having lived in the Netherlands for 6 years (I’m a kiwi) I’m just not used to this level of professional customer care, so thank you.
I will take your advice and order the kit you recommend.
Thank you again.
Dear Karen , 
I am a woman of 49, and like yourself i do not have any lines or wrinkles ( you look fantastic by the way ) , i have never moisterized my skin over the years and put it down to very low exposure to the sun throughout my life although i do smoke .
I started useing your products a little over a month ago and just recently 
received my 2nd order from you .
I read with much interest the facts about petro chemicals and the
potential damage they could do to your skin ,
i have been useing the ten years younger sets that you offer and must say that upon first application of the oil my skin felt as if tension had been released ,( dont know if that makes any sense ? ) .
The following morning i applied the rejuvenating serum for the first time , this product i found even when useing small amounts spreads out very easily over large areas of the skin and absorbes very quickly indeed , i like this serum especially because of the wonderful refreshing sensation it gives me wich lasts a long time .

Having told you that i do not have lines or wrinkles and that the skin surface appears to be in good condition , i purchased the products in the hope that they would or could bring what i call ( glowing radiance) to my face, i have very pale skin but i feel that it looks lifeless and unhealthy somehow , i am therefore wondering if you could advise me on products in your range to help my problem , i have looked through the products booklet you supply but am unsure and need a professional opinion .

I will look forward to hearing from you with any advice thanx ,

kindest regards ,
Hi thank you for your email karen not in today so I’m replying for her .
Basic there needs to be a routine to skincare yes the oils will do wonders but there’s many other things that need also to be used from time to time 

For example a exfoliating lotion once a week in the shower will remove dead skin cell the biggest cause of pale looking skin 
Another thing we teach the beauty therapists is to mix the cleansers and face wash together to clean the skin and remove make up this give the power of the wash will the hydration of the cleanser
and a toner can have a impact after the cleansers as well 
You just need to pick the skin type you are i.e. dry which also is mature and repairing or combination fresh and uplifting 
Another little tip is 1-2 times a week apply the oil on damp skin this means a water molecule is also being trapped into the skin as well .

Best regards

I have been uniquely using your products now for about 3 months, having initially tested your facial oils some 5 months ago, alongside my the current range. The difference I have seen in my dehydrated, hormonal falre-up prone 40 year old skin since completely swapping to your range is I more than even I expected, if I am honest. The fine lines round my eyes have improved more than I dared hope for and my skin for the first time in 3 years is CLEAR and has been for about 4 weeks now
Hi John
Just wanted to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU!!
For as long as I can remember I have sufffered with sore itchy skin around my face and neck area even though I used organic products (which I have since discovered are not as organic as I thought!) I used to dread the summer coming because as soon as I went out into the sun I could feel my skin burning even though I used a factor 30!
My holidays were a nightmare as I used to have to spend them under the shade. If I covered up I would get a heat rash.
I eventually went to the doctors who gave me steroid cream which I was unhappy using and as soon as I finished the course the rash would start again. After a few visits the doctor referred me to the hospital where I was given patch testing only to be told that I was not allergic to anything I just had sensitive skin!
After a particularly bad holiday last year I decided to be proactive and searched the internet. That was when I found your website and after a lot of advise from yourself I tried your products bit by bit and found my skin was a lot less sore and itchy. 

I have now been using them for a few months and have given them the ultimate test I have been on holiday! I have managed to do some sunbathing without any irritation and have managed to get a tan! 

I am absolutely over the moon so once again thank you your products have changed my life! The irritations where really starting to get me down.
Kindest regards
Hi there,
I felt I must email you to let you know how impressed I am with your products.
I have been using the anti-ageing sample kit and in just 5 days I have noticed the
I had very deep lines on my forehead and being a smoker
I had those awful deep lines above my top lip. I have recently returned
from 10 years in Spain and although I was always very rigorous about facial skincare 
my skin still felt very dry and sun damaged.    ( please note those who read this that 99% of skin care products don't do any good, in fact they can been even more damaging due to the harsh chemicals in them and that’s even at £100 + Brands! But using ours can reverse that, even repair the damage done like this woman has experienced 
Comment by .....john essentially yours
I am 46 but I felt I looked older.
So after just 5 days the lines and ridges are reducing, quite considerably so much so that
when I saw my sister yesterday, whom I hadnt seen for a couple of weeks, she
commented on how good I looked.
I have, over the years, spent many hundreds of pounds on
facial skincare products that always promised the earth and delivered nothing but
I had been looking at facial peels and botox but was very wary of these sorts of treatments
because basically, if it went wrong then there would be no way to hide it.
I am so pleased to have finally found something that actually does what it says
on thebox. I have recommended your website to my 23 year old daughter because you can never
be too early in starting a facial skincare routine, and after learning what ingredients are
in all high street and big name brands I will also be telling my friends. .
I shall be purchasing the sample kits for my relatives birthdays, and not just for the girls either.
I have just ordered the full anti-ageing kit plus some extras and I only hope that they arrive 
before the samples run out.
Please feel free to use this as a testimonial, every woman should be aware of your
products and their amazing benefits.
Thanks to you all


Thanks for the samples. Have started using them and am impressed with their moisturising qualities so far. Have had a few friends comment on how good my complexion was looking and it's only been 4 days! 
MEN benefit as well.....
Dear Sir,
As far as I can remember I had razor burns, red patches, painful skin during washing and after that. Red stains and awful peeling face skin was always what I hate. After careful reading of all information from essentially-yours web site I decided try. First samples, than normal sizes. I really didn't expect miracles. Day after day dryness and red stains disappeared from my skin. I'm 43 and I started with shaving in age 13, never ever had normal skin like others men. Always painful and with razor burns. When I was young I used a lot of antibiotics and steroid creams but there was no change. Now, after seven weeks with essentially-yours I still have few small redness's on my face but there is massive improvement. My skin all ower body stopped being wet all the times, I feel that skin is breathing. Pigmentation stains from face nearly gone. I have new skin, my skin coming back to life.
So many thanks for great work. Sorry for my English, but it isn't my first language.

I purchased a sample kit for roseacea whilst at the girls day out at the SECC.
I am delighted with the samples.and look forwarding to trying out some of your other products after getting my roseacea under control.

The sample of luxury oil that was included could you please confirm if it is the Luxury facial massage oil or one of the other oils you have available for purchase.

Hi John,
I have just started using your anti-aging 10 years younger products and think they are great, so much so that I have recommended it to my friend. She has tried to get the free sample kit but for some reason or other has not been able to complete, so if i give you her address would you please be able to send her a free sample to try.
Dear John,
I just wanted to say how wonderful your therapeutics cream is.
I developed eczema on my shin about 8 months ago – the itching was driving me mad. Nothing seemed to work.
I found your site after a web search and have been using the cream at least tree times a day for the last few months – wonderful. 
It has made me realise that if I’m taking such care of my leg then surely my facial skin is just as important. I’ve now purchased several of your samples to try them out before purchasing the full size products. I expect to be just as impressed.
Hi John,

I just wanted to let you know that your products are working fantastically for me, and to say a BIG thank you for the time you took to email me all the articles. It has been 2 months now and i have not had to use a steroid cream once (i really did not expect that) !!!! The therapeutics range has really calmed my skin down although not perfect yet I now have faith that i have finally found a skincare routine that i can rely on. I have just ordered some more products and within the next couple of months my cabinet will look like an essentially yours shop.
Thank you again
I recently purchased your anti-aging sets and think they are fantastic I'm 57yrs old. My daugther will be 31 this year with normal skin type which products would you recommend 
Hi thank you for your e mail 
She should go for the combination range and the holistic facial oil 
Use the oil sparsely on damp skin in the morning and then a small amount of the moisturiser on top , the face wash or cleanser at night ( even the two mixed together) to remove make up and use the facial oil for water proof make-up if she uses them . 
Best regards John 
I ordered your sample anti ageing kit a week ago, and since using it for a week my skin is smoother less dry lines and my age spots look lighter.I am so pleased although doubtful at the time of buying,,as I have always used Elemis and expensive brands of skincare as I used to be a buyer of a large department store and have tried everything over the years.
But this range is so good , I have just purchased your full size anti ageing kit,I cant wait to use them as the fragrances are so lovely,thanks for the opportunity of trying them.
I am 65 in June,and my skin looks great now....
Please use this testimonial if you need to.
Kind Regards, Sandraann in Spain
Hi again, I love the fact you have put together special kits like bridal kit, holiday kit etc. Great products grouped together and at a fantastic price. I was wondering if the bridal kit came in the fragrance free products?

Not only have your product reduced my rosacea rash by 90%+ but I can actually see that my skin is getting moisture into it. So thankyou for your wonderful products which I will continue to use forever.

After reading much of the info on your site, I checked the ingredients of my favourite company (whom I trusted to be safe and believed they where truthful) and found a few ingredients I did not ever want in my products. So thanks for the info. The company is Lush, It is very important to be able to trust a company to me.

Keep up the good work
hi.am a big fan of your range.Ihave been using the antiaging range that was in the set and have been blown away by the results so far.Iwould like to try a sample of the eye cream to complete a regime . Ifeel this would benefit me .. thankyou 
I have been using your Natural Elements dry skin sample kit and so far my skin - rosacea, dry and oily - hasn't got any worse but not better. I need to wear foundation make up during the day to hide the very red, blotchy & brown patchy skin and dilated capillaries on my cheeks, nose and chin and need a full coverage solution here. I'm using a mix of Estee Lauder Double-Wear Stay-in-Place makeup foundation and Max Factor Age Renew foundation to get the right colour and consistency mix, which is probably why its not getting any better!

Can you recommend an organic foundation make up that would compliment your Natural Elements skincare and work with my skin, not against it?
If you did no exercise for 20 years in fact what you were doing was making you more unfit for that 20 years and went to the gym would you expect to turn back all that wrong doing in a few days ?
You need to be using our products for ever to help this it’s not about a quick cream.
What you should be doing and using is 
Dry cleanser and face wash together to take off make-up at night and then apply the oil afterwards massage into the skin then a little moisturiser on top 
In the morning apply the oil on damp skin massage in then again apply the moisturiser on top let it soak in and then apply the make up
And absolutely nothing else no wipes or anything else! , look out for chemical shampoos and shower gels which will be irritating the skin, best to use ours ( see attachments such things ) 
The make up does not help but if you can get it off the skin asap when you come in and apply the oil and cream for the first few weeks/months so the skin can really repair that would be beneficial . 

Now spf’s you need to stop using them there full of chemical 1. use the oil as your defence and 2. use the base sweet almond oil if sunbathing but be careful not to burn the oil only protects you from uva light not the burn read about spf’s etc on the web site information pages.
And yes this is about spending about £100 on products which are healthy for you from you head to your toes but would you give someone £100 to be rid of it I know what my answer would be. 
Hi John, Thank you for your advice regarding my very very sensitive skin, your routine advice worked for me, and the luxury facial oil seems to suit me better than the others.
Thanks again, I will now be placing an order as my skin feels and looks great. 
Great thank you for feed back its all adds to helping others 
Ps can you be careful with sunscreens spf’s see attachments 
Best to use a natural oil and limit the exposures until your melanin goes a nice colour of brown which it will given time

I have recently purchased one of your sample kits. The one for the treatment of Roseacea. I am very pleased to say that I can already see a noticeable difference and improvement in my skin. 

I would just like to check that I am using it correctly. There is a face wash and a cleanser. I use the face wash and then cleanse. Is that the correct way round? Also should I be using both morning and evening. 
Hi yes that’s correct you can even mix the two together if you wish, then oil on skin and the cream on top you will not get the long term effect till your using it daily ,
This is not a one a off treatments it’s about 
1. not using the harsh chemicals of products ( see attachments)
2. using products full of repairing and fully protecting ( shielding the skin)
You can use it in the morning if you wish but the idea is to take make uo off / cleanse your skin at night with it 
Would you be able to advise me please?
I was diagnosed with Rosacea a couple of months ago and prescribed Metrogel which forms a clear plastic film over my nose when dry and then peels off during the day which frankly makes things worse and there has been no improvement I just stopped using it. A OMG pegs i.e. polyethylene glycol that’s over cleaner what going on what are they thinking 
I also have a very dry flaky forehead and what appears to be dandruff in my eyebrows. A Ok try the luxury facial oil I can send you a sample, let me have your address apply all over the face, then the moisturiser on top will also give you a sun defence to uva light i.e. the harmful one 
My daughter gave me a gift of Natural Elements Rose Geranium & Lavender moisturiser some time ago and I tried it out for my forehead and there is a huge improvement 
to the whole of my face in only two days!
I have ordered your catalogue, are there any other products you would recommend I should be using as well as this one for my condition? A Use any of the dry skin range i.e. especially cleanser etc also a little of the scrub but just a little in the shower to remove the dead skin once or twice a week . really the chemicals are not good for you in products (see attachments) so you should also look at the shampoos you use again I can send you some samples what hair type are you i.e. coloured, normal, fine, oily, dry etc 

My name is Sarah, and I have spoken to you a couple of times before on the phone (I am the one doing the Caravan holidays in Wales!!!!). On your previous advice, I now have your fantastic range for Acne Rosacia in your dry skin products... I can't tell you how calm my complexion is as a result of using your products.... Thank you!!!!
Hello John, I have just started using your products and I am delighted at the results so far. Initially I didn’t think that they would work as I have tried everything and they don’t! Could you possibly recommend a solution to reducing the dark circles beneath the eyes?. Also is it possible to purchase a sample of the face contouring serum to try before I buy?
Hi there, I ordered a few sample kits and would like to say how impressed I am with your products. What I would like to know is, I love the fact you have money saving kits, but do you do one for the sensitive range.
I am also curious if you will be bringing out any more products, ie Hair styling, deodorant etc. Answer:. We can’t do hair styling needs chemicals, deodorants stones are good and available in health food shops, we're looking at getting some soon 
I LOVE the luxury facial oil. Answer: I know there great 

I dont quite understand rosacea, as yet, but your products have calmed it down about80-90% great and managed to get the moisture back into the skin.....nothing was moisurising my skin at all! Sometimes when I use your products I get a very small reaction and other times no reaction at all! But I can clearly see the difference :) The reaction tends to go down within an hour or so.
Answer : Mm may be the ph of the skin has not fully recovered yet 
Don’t use to many at the one time, also try damping the skin first before apply the oil, are you using any wipes spf etc how are you removing make up etc 

I would not hesitate to recomend your products to anyone.
dear John
I do not usually write reviews or testimonials but I am absolutely amazed at the difference to my skin after using the hydrating oil and day serum. I am 57 years old and have very dry skin. To be honest, before I used your products, I was seriously considering some kind of surgery or filler injections. My skin looked so parched, drawn and just old.

I tried your sample kit and immediately saw a huge difference. i have since bought the full size product and my skin continues to improve.

I don't look 20 years younger BUT my skin looks fresh, plumper, less haggard! My makeup looks a million times better too.
Thank you for making such a wonderful product.

Thank you so much for your prompt reply to my query & in such personal & individually tailored terms too,I can see now what writers of your testimonials meant when they wrote that your replies made them feel so special-it's like having a private consultation.Having read the attachments I can fully understand what you mean about the harsh chemicals that these other preparations contain & the advertising hype that surrounds them & that being bombarded with all the accompanying fanfares that go with them,promising plenty & in truth delivering not very much at all,it's so easy to be taken in. Then when you go to the stores & are confronted by the shiny,shiny packaging,the transaction is complete before you even realise the money has changed hands for it to be consigned to the back of the cupboard in the bathroom when,after use,the miracles that were promised don't happen(& weren't in truth going to happen anyway,no matter how much of the product you used or how much money you spent on it). I shall take your advice & buy the Rosacea Sample Kit & look forward greatly to seeing an improvement in my skin as reported by some of your other correspondents who have used it. With gratitude once again for your very kind attention. 

this is what we are talking about real anti ageing by natural products 
thank you laurie 
Well to be honest, I m a walking ad for your products thanks to my beauty Therapist, Kelly Piggot of Radiance in Bramley. I ve been using your products for years and as you can see from the enclosed picture taken at the end of a very hard day, it works. I m 50 years old and people think I m literally 10 years younger ! i always looked after myself and my skin observing the basic things to do or not. But still if I wasnt smiling on that picture, you wouldnt even see the few crows feet I have near my eyes. And i have had no surgery whatsoever. So feel free to use my pic and my comments if of use. I often get asked how I have skin like this at 50 and I tell people, good hygiene, no crap food, exercise everyday and Essentially Yours ! Kind Regards
you can see Laurie photo on our page WANT YOUNGER LOOKING SKIN  click here http://www.essentially-yours.co.uk/index.php?id=41 
Been using your products for about a year now and I have to say my skin is transformed! It used to be so red and itchy/flakey every time I had a shower or put just plain water on it. Now I can have a shower, wash my hair and don't have to rush to slap on moisturiser! 
Hi John ,thanks so much your a star ,yes i will try on damp skin thx for the tip ,
got my kit omg your products are fab ,would luv to try the night cream if you have any samples (xoxox)..lol
Thanks John for my free eye product only used today ,and already my eyes seem brighter !! AMAZING ...
Have recommended to 2 of my friends so hopefully they will place orders with you 
This company ( and yours truly ) are well like your products AMAZING !1...
Thanks John sooooo muchDear John 
I have recently started using the Essentially Yours anti ageing range, my order arrived 2 weeks ago and I can't tell you how happy I am with the products, my skin has never felt so good! Smooth, clear and fresh looking I just wish I'd found your products years ago.
I bought the roseacea sample kit, it has worked really well which am pleased off. I havent had to use my cream that is prescribed by the GP

My daughter has been using steroid cream around the inner corners of her eye, top lid and below the eye and inner corners for the treatment of eczema,which
just started a few months ago.The steroid cream was the only thing that worked (although I wasn't happy about using it), other creams such as double base 
did nothing, it still remained red puffy, swollen and itchy. 
I looked up on the Internet and found your website and sent off for a sample pot, not sure if it would work or not.
I've been using since last Thursday and I must say it's amazing it really works, I am so happy as I didn't like using the steroid cream
at all.
I just wanted to know, as I have ordered a tube of moisturising cream and I am awaiting the delivery, if it's safe to use around the inner eye area, the lids and underneath the eye and how often I can use it daily.
I must say I am Very very impressed with the sample pot I received and very grateful to you.
Look forward to your reply.
reply was yes you can use it any where and as many times as you wish 

RE: rosacea 
Just wanted to say I have have been using my sample kit and already I can see an improvement in my redness!! Have just ordered the full sizes - thank you very much for your advice.
Dear John,

Firstly I would like to thank you for sending me some samples recently and to tell you that I was pleasantly delighted to find they really do exactly what you say they do.. I have since ordered some of your products and as a matter of fact have just placed a second order for some of your others.

I was wondering however, what would you recommend for my hands which of course are one of the parts of us that age quite quickly.. have you any samples that I could try on them as I would like to find something that could give them the help they need ? I couldn't see anything in your anti ageing section for hands.Many thanks
Answer by ey
Hands :I have seen that happen one of the biggest culprits is the free radicals of the sun, so use the facial oil residual on the hands after applying on face and that has a huge impact , also be careful with soaps there extremely drying our hand wash is way way better 1. because it’s not drying ( no detergent) 2.yet more anti bacterial than soaps because of the essential oils it kill even the swine virus.
Another thing is to use the seaweed body lotion and again rub residual into the hands

We don’t always sell products we give free advice as well e mail us at

Hi - just thought I'd drop you a quick line. I ordered a trial of your therapeutics shampoo last week and after 3 days of using it, I realise that a life-long search may be at an end. Here's a list of products that have proved to be between ineffective and utterly worthless to me over the years, in no particular order:

Nizoral anti dandruff 
T-Gel Therapeutic 
T-Gel Anti-dandruff
Head & Shoulders various - classic, cool menthol, sensitive, soothing
Neutrogena Calming
Avalon Organics Tea Tree
Avalon Organics Lemon Clarifying
E-45 dermatological dry scalp
Paul Mitchell tea tree
Liz Earle Botanical shine
Elvive anti-dandruff
Pantene anti-dandruff

I know now that these products have been contributing to blotchy and red skin after showering, dandruff-like symptoms, a sometimes furiously itchy scalp and it's often been quite miserable. Obviously you know about all this.. I unfortunately only discovered you last week.

In eternal gratitude.

Thank you for your email , the reason it's a late reply is I spent the day at a event of meeting the buyers from the top 10 retailers in the uk and I have to say given their buying for the consumer they have not got a clue about ingredients 
and as for the other ten displaying there ranges that’s was even worse , it’s astonishing a bit like a chef being asked to pass the onions and them saying ‘what’s a onion’ !
Pleased it’s helped

Thank you for the fantastic holiday kit - the seaweed and aloe after sun is fab and the sweet almond oil makes my skin feel truly nourished also has the extra benefit of making my skin look great when going out in the evening. Not sure if it's related but seem to have had less insect bites this year to!

Also love the rose and lavender hydrating body lotion I bought it as a kit can't see it as a single item am I missing it or is it not available?

Many thanks for your lovely products - I love the fact I can read the back of a bottle with out dread and can and recognise all the products.

I am gradually working my way through many of your products. I have bought the acne roseacea cleanser etc.... with good results. Also the shower body wash, handwash and the wish shampoo. I would like to try the lemongrass and ginger conditioner, would it be possible to send me a sample to try please?

I am so pleased I found your company! My skin is no longer itchy.

Just to let you know that I am very impressed with your delivery arrangements. I only placed my order at the weekend and it was received, in Singapore, at midday today (23 Feb) - so thank you once again. The £20 shipping costs was definitely worth it!
Hi John, 
After purchasing your wild mint and rosemary shampoo and jojoba and ylang ylang conditioner, people have been commenting how good my hair looks, and my sister keeps trying to pinch some! Please could you send her a sample of said shampoo and conditioner to try as im to selfish to give her any of mine!



I was wondering if I could get information on how to become a party planner for essentially yours? I prob have already sent an email though my computer crashed as I hit sent so don't know if it sent already.

The product has totally changed my life as an eczema sufferer and want everyone to know about this fabulous product that is not pumped full of harmful chemicals and good for your skin.

So I would like to learn more on helping make people aware of this website and products

Dear John.
Thank you for the sample of the Mens Shave Oil, which you sent. 
My husband rubbed some on his knee, which was sore, and also on the back of his neck, which was aching.
He said it helped straight away.
I will pass the word round some of my customers, who I think might be interested.
A quick thankyou John. . The luxury facial massage oil has really made a difference to my skin. My closest friend noticed and she's a customer now too. As a bonus we like the smell!
hi john 
Following our conversation about puffy eye, I took your advice & massaged the lymph glands & ran up & down the stairs (phew!) & yay! Puffiness has gone.
Just saying how I loved your samples of '10 years younger' I used them over Christmas and my skin glowed despite late nights and treatment for cancer. I suffer from acne which comes up as boils on cheeks and chin they are very painful and lie under the skin ready to flare up again! The samples cleared these up I am so pleased and have bought full sizes now

Thank you, I really appreciate your care as well as your products.
love,light and laughter

You sent me a free sample of your rejuvenating day serum together with luxury massage oil for the face. I have used them both and find them both brilliant. My face is smoother and the dry skin has gone. 
I received a 10 years younger sample from you last (delivery was next day - thanks very much!) After only a couple of days use I was really impressed so ordered the full size kit (again, super fast delivery). I've just ordered a cleanser to complement the kit. I was wondering if it's possible to buy trial sizes of your bath and body products (particularly the sandalwood & neroli and patchouli & lavender?

Hello John,
Thank you very much for the information! I do find that finding the information of what is in Elemis is very difficult. There is no information on the bottle other than the natural products that are in it. I can't find the box with the paper in it so couldn't say what is on that but your information does make one question the honesty on what is in it. :( Thanks for pointing that out! 

I would love to try you products and consider switching over! :) Thanks so much for you message, not many companies offer such a personalized experience. I'm impressed! 


If you’re looking at anti-ageing this tells you why you can get great results with us 

Dear John,
I came across your website on the internet and hope you can help me. I am a slim 50 year old lady who has always looked younger but in the last 18 months, probably due to hormone changes I have suddenly aged in the face quite dramatically. The worst part is sagging of the skin especially around the jawline and neck. I have wrinkles around the eyes with sagging above the eyes but the problem is I have to be careful with products here because I also suffer with puffiness, even when not using anything, so it is not down to heavy creams etc. but this does make it worse. Hope you can give me some advice as to if and how your products could help me and which ones you would recommend.
Unfortunately I live in Portugal so I hope you can ship here.
Thank you for your time, hope to hear from you soon as I am desperate!

A lot of people don't realise that they have for years been using things i.e. products full of chemicals which will prematurely age the skin and they can't see this until they do start to age i.e. 40+ if they continue with the petro chemical type products things go downhill fast. 

The skin needs a whole load of things and while it can cope with chemicals and do without them when younger as it ages it's in desperate need of them and indead for you to stop using petro chemicals .

For example you may have heard of a brand called lush which the owners have been highlighted in the press recently, much more successful as entrepreneur than us (we bow to that) 'there both similar ages as myself and my partner ( mid fiftys )'
yet when you show there photos to people they said they look sixty something where as I and my partner are often taken as 40 something....and I have seen this over and over again from the head of the big brands of skincare right down to the so called specialist anti ageing product users ...... so what does that tell you. 

Well it's not about the brand it's about what in it that makes the difference and that can be a big difference.
We can't make you look 21 again but what we can do is reverser some of the damage and indeed slow it down .

What you have to do is completely stop using petro-chemical products on your skin and I would suggest you start with using in our ranges The ten years younger kit combine this with the dry skin cleansers/face wash etc ( dry skin because its more repairing you don’t need to have dry skin) I have put in attachments a routine which is best and indeed some things about products ingredients etc and somethings on antioxidants which fight off free radical damage, which is the why we age. Now antioxidant only come from plant oils exactly what our products are made from where as most products are made from petro chemicals which are drying and damaging .... see where we are coming from .


Hi John just wanted to say thank you for the samples of cleanser, moisturiser & facial oil. I recieved them on friday and iv used them for 3 days i cant believe the difference in my skin, i only wish id discovered them before my skin was so sore from using other so call specialist products for roseaca!!. I have placed an order today for full size products and cant wait to recieve them. thanks again joanne
Thank you so much that is very helpful and after 3 days use of the oil and the serum I can already see a huge difference to my skin.I have recommended that my sister tries your products.Thank goodness I stumbled across your site.

I've been using your Therapeutics range on my children for the last 6 six years and can't tell enough people, just how good it is. I have two extremely beautiful children who suffer from eczema and thanks to you neither of them have to have any medication prescribed and have the most gorgeous compexions you could ask for as a mother.

Anyway I thought I'd treat myself just before Christmas and try out your face contouring serum and just like the Therapeutics, it's great! I slipped a disc earlier on in the year and massive amounts of pain killers, lack of sleep and general worry/pain took it's toll on my, usually, pretty good skin and I was left with a sallow, drab complexion - not great for ones self esteem! Anyhow in not much more than a week, my skin is looking fresh and youthful so a huge thankyou. 

I'm obviously thinking of swapping over to your products completely so if you could send me some samples I'd be really grateful - especially interested in your nourishing eye cream and neck serum.

Thank you again - 
Kind regards

Many thanks for sending the cream to my daughter in Chippenham, it came very quickly and I put in on Sean's arms and within 3 applications his dry skin looked so much better. I ordered a full size tube and my daughter is using that everytime after his bath and is seeing a great improvement. I would also like to thank the staff for the extremely efficient service I received when I ordered the cream and other products for myself and her - ordered it lunch time and it was with me early next morning, most pleased. Love the sandlewood and neroli shower gel and body lotion, super duper smell!! Have been telling everyone about the cream - and all your products - so hopefully more customers for you.
I'm glad it didn't fall into a black hole! I regard your company as something of a find as I suffer from a variety of allergies and so buy your fragrance free range, which I must say is fabulous - the feel of the products is wonderful and my skin has noticeably improved. Whenever people comment I always recommend you, so after telling everyone in the office this morning how good your service was, I thought I'd tell you! I also forgot to say in my last email thank you for the free body puff - it's touches like that that make me feel like a valued customer. 

I'm more than happy for you to use my comments, and I wish you continued success with the business.

This morning I stumbled across your site while trying to find out about Butylhydroxyanisole (E320) which is in a childrens tonic. I was horrified to learn that this as an antioxidant and preservative in food, food packaging, animal feed, cosmetics, and in rubber and petroleum products. It is also listed as a carcinogen in America but is deemed acceptable here. It's extremely frightening as a parent to find that something I was considering giving to my poorly little princess to speed recovery could potentially harm her. As a vegan mother I've tried to raise my family as holistically and ethically possible. It seems however that the products that we use daily although vegan, may contain the harmful ingredients you raise awareness of. I currently use Superdrug's gentle vitamin skincare range, and I find that my face is constantly itchy. I would dearly love to find the right products for my family as we all have very sensitive skin. Please would you consider sending us some samples as I obviously want the very best of health for us all. Now I am aware that the products i'm buying may be of harm I desperately want to change them.

It has been a real eye opener this morning, I am so happy to have found 'Essentially Yours'. Thank you, you have definately changed our lives for the better, making me more aware. I would be very grateful if you would forward a catalogue to me please. 

Hello...was just wondering if you could send a sample of the regenerating facial oil. I have tried a couple of other products and they were brilliant. I am just waiting for my wages to arrive and then I shall be placing an order. Wish I had discovered your products years ago as they seem to knock the socks off Loreal, Olay etc.How the heck do you do it !!

Many thanks

Hello John,

Thank you for your prompt and very honest reponse, it is comforting to know that some people really care and are not just out to take your money.
I will purchase your regenerating facial oil and see how I get along.
Thank you again for your response it has bought real comfort to me.

Kind Regards,


Good morning!
I received your samples yesterday and have only used them twice, but have noticed an improvement already!
I am so pleased that I have just placed an order for everything my skin needs this morning.
I have also ordered the Kill em dead spot kit for my teenage son.
In addition my son also has very bad eczema on this ankles and feet. Would you kindly send some samples of the eczema products along with my order. My order number is 17849 and I just placed it about ten minutes ago.
Many thanks for the assistance and great products, I look forward to more exciting products soon.


Before I go to bed I wanted to write this out for you, as I am really impressed with the little kit you passed to me.
I first applied the products on Saturday evening. So, this evening, the results I am recording are after 2 days use. 

My skin feels like it has a veil of fine powder over it, that's the best explanation I can think of. It is just so incredibly soft! 

Both products have a soothing texture and apply easily without leaving my face feeling heavy or greasy - which is sometimes a problem I have found with intensive anti-ageing or night creams.

It made such a difference after 2 days that I now want to see what it does with regular use!! Thanks for the sample, what a great little find! xx


I hope you are fighting fit! Recently I went sailing and one of the crew thought I was looking pretty good for an ol' gal so I told her about your products ... she would love to try the serum and moisturiser if you do not mind

Dear John,
I just want to tell you about a phenomenon which you probably already know about. Since using your natural products, I now find that the scent of some shop-bought products is now not so acceptable to my sense of smell. They all seem very sweet and sickly.
Also, for over 20 years I have had a wart on one of my fingers – a large, itchy ugly affair. Suddenly it is disappearing. I put this down to either your hand wash, or the fact that after I have used the luxury facial oil, I rub the excess into my hands.

It would be interesting to know if others have reported these findings.Thank you for your email and pleased there working well for you .

We have always believed that such oils will impact on things like warts because there anti viral so great news , we get this all the time about such matters of bacteria on feet to anywhere on the body being destroyed by them .
Thanks again for this so we can pass this on to others 
reply from john from essentailly yours 

I'm a recent convert to your skin products and have found my rosacea improving beyond my hopes!
just wanted to let you know that I've been using the ten years younger kit for a few months now and my skin feels softer - My lines look less obvious - my skin feels soft all day and the smell is absolutely gorgeous! It is the only product I have continued to use and I have recommended it to all of my friends. People have commented on how nice my skin looks - my pores look more refined and I feel younger!
I am going to purchase products for oily skin for my daughter as I believe they will help her more than the usual off the counter products.

First of all I want to say thank-you for all of your help and for the sample pots you sent me. The service I have received has been far better than any department store and the products came so quickly!

I have been using the '10 Years Younger' kit for a number of weeks now and it is just gorgeous! My skin seems to have taken on a 'dewy' look and has a luminosity that I have only been able to achieve with 'light reflecting' cosmetics up until now! The rejuvinating day serum provides a lovely matt base for make-up (should you still need to wear it!) and the luxury facial oil is heaven! I have been so impressed with the look of my skin first thing in the morning & can't believe that I don't wake up with an 'oil-slick' down the centre of my face like I have done with products I have used in the past. Using the cleanser & toner for combination skin each evening before the luxury facial oil is like having a mini facial every night! And the 'spot serum' is amazing! Even my 17 year old son said so! It is far better than any product we have ever used before.

I am going on holiday at the end of October & am interested in using the Sweet Almond oil as my sun protection. However I am slightly sceptical as my mother died of malignant melanoma 16 years ago & I have a large patch of chloasma (brown patch) on one side of my face which gets worse when I am in the sun. I tend to slap on the SPF50! If you have any advice or information it would be much appreciated.

I came across your website quite by chance & am only sorry I didn't discover it sooner. Now that I have, I intend to make up for lost time & will certainly be ordering more of your wonderful products in the future.

Thank you so much once again.


Wow! I have today received my 'little' parcel from you and it feels like Christmas! Thank you so much for my free therapeutic range! I have put the body lotion on my poor old legs and guess what! No itching, no stinging and no redness developing! I can't believe it! Even when I put prescribed products on them I end up writhing around in agony!! So will definitely be passing this on to others to try. Also I have just performed a facial on my friend using the dry cleanser and toner and then the 10 year younger set. She said she felt wonderful afterwards and so I've given her some sample pots and hopefully she'll put an order in. She's going to host a girls night in for me when I get my kit together. So watch this space. 
I love the 10 years younger, after using I have gone from 92 to 29.

Seriously it is great.Thanks,
Marjorie Titchen.
Firstly I‘d like to say that I am totally in love with your ‘Natural Elements Organic 10 Years Younger Skincare Kit’ – I recently brought the moisturising serum again as I think it’s one the best products I have ever used.
I have used many products such as Dermalogica/clarins/Clinique but the Natural Elements organic serum has to be my favourite.
I really do see the difference in my skin.
Hi Karen
OMG! Never mind anyone else noticing the difference – I did by the 2nd day!! Love, luv, lurve the samples! I’ve been telling all my girlfriends that I have found the solution to looking better and feeling better, the essential oils really help me wind down. I have forwarded the link to your page to them; however one friend in particular (my best friend) Ms Dorett Leyden is not too clever with emails and I was wondering if you could kindly send her a sample of 10YY? Dorett has skin problems identical to my own.

if this does not sum us up nothing does 
Received the samples last week thank you! – Loved how they were presented in the little bag on a card explaining what each on does. 
I was expecting those horrible foiled packet type sample things you get free in magazines so was impressed by the pots. 

Have to say the email was lovely as well, it had a personal touch as it wasn’t automated – It said I care about my customer! 

I have been very ill recently and consequently a bit reluctant to try new cosmetics (I usually go for Channel, Clinique etc and spend a fortune in the process) as I am now scared stiff of chemicals – I asked for samples as, being the 50 plus woman I still want to make the most of my appearance (and look as if I look after myself!!) – have to say I used your products with an open mind and had no great expectations. 

I have been using Natural Elements products for only a few weeks but my skin is clearer and more moisturised than ever before. I am in my fifties and thoroughly recommend this company to women of all ages but especially those of middle age and over. I have to avoid Parabens, having had Breast Cancer, and it is wonderful to have found these products because I can use them with confidence, knowing that they contain nothing harmful. Morning and evening cleansing rituals are now something I really look forward to; it's almost as relaxing as going to a salon when I massage the products in, and the fragrances are fabulous. I gave my 30 year old daughter some 'Spot Serum' and it clears up her acne spots virtually overnight; she too is 'sold' on these products, and we both intend to use them from now on.

All I can say is I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THE PRODUCT!!! – those little pots were absolutely fantastic and I seriously feel as though they do the trick! They smell so nice and I am sure the smell has helped me relax and sleep better! - Today, imagine my surprise when my husband commented (without prompting mind!) that I look really well and my skin is looking really good!!
i tried using 10 years younger kit and found after a week or so i could see a gleam 2 my appearance, also skin seemed firmer, but not only this i found that the facial massage oil is good for the eczema on my fingers help it alot with softness,no itching taking all irritation away
hi John I was wondering if you could send me a sample of eye cream or gel for dark circles under the eyes and moisturising cream for dry skin, thank you.
I would just like to mention your products have totally change my life the results have given me confidence in my skin and i now stop looking at anti ageing creams or anything to do with products for the face, however i do still wear make up but a fraction of what i used to use. and your shampoo and conditioner are great i dont have to wash my hair everyday thank you. 

I don't know if this is an automatic account or if a real person will read it, but I just want to say how impressed I am with your service and your company. I ordered yesterday and received the goods this morning - very impressive! Your products are good value for money as well and I just wanted to let you know.
I regard your company as something of a find as I suffer from a variety of allergies and so buy your fragrance free range, which I must say is fabulous - the feel of the products is wonderful and my skin has noticeably improved. Whenever people comment I always recommend you, so after telling everyone in the office this morning how good your service was, I thought I'd tell you! I also forgot to say in my last email thank you for the free body puff - it's touches like that that make me feel like a valued customer. 
I'm more than happy for you to use my comments, and I wish you continued success. 

hi i would just like to say that your products are great, i met one of your friends liz in tunisia and my skin was really bad with sunburn and it was peeling, liz gave me some cream and within a few hours it had cleared and that meant i could enjot the rest of my holiday. thank you 
Great opportunity to tell you that I love your products, I tried the sweet almond oil as a sunscreen yesterday, it worked a treat. Keep up the good work.
Water Full Of Chemicals From Shower Gels & Shampoo
You must have read my mind! I was just putting on some beautiful Rose & Lavender LYB body lotion, and reminded myself I must put that on my shopping list. Keep up the publicity - many people do not know that the mainstream manufacturers (who also torture animals) have so many harsh chemicals in their products, and that everywhere is being polluted with the result.
Lovely to hear from you at Essentially Yours.
l have been using the 10 years younger kit for the past 4months now and l have seen a huge difference and everyone keeps telling me that l do not look 38 years old but 19 years of age which is excellent news. The only thing l am not sure about is why my neck has even more visible lines now than when l started using the neck serum my eslasticity in my neck is fading and l see a slight saggy skin at my age l really do not understand this l mean l did what you advised me but nothing is happening l had one line when l started the neck serum and the seaweed lotion but now the other one has appeared too l my face is so young compared to my neck l now have two visible lines on the front of my neck l even use so much of the luxury oil and evening primrose oil but nothing is happening please help me reserve the aging signs in my neck l am so consious of it now and its making me unhappy of l look women who are much older than l am and they don t have the signs of aging in their throat of their neck l am too young for that please advice. are oils really good for the neck because l have been using an excess of it just trying to firm and tone my muscles in my neck but it seems to be getting worse.

our reply was 

Ok the neck is a really difficult area and your
just coming to the age when it starts to age sorry .
A few things to look at 
1 yes use the facial oil and the neck serum on top even look at the rehydrating oil for the neck the reason I will tell you next 
2 how are you protecting the neck from the sun because it’s that the biggest culprit , if you’re using a spf look at using a natural vital oil when sunbathing i.e. sweet almond under it or instead .. available on the web site... this stop the free radical damage and this is where the rehydrating may be better I used it all summer because of the two main base oils are the most defensive vital oils for the sun ( see attachments )
I’m not a great fan of sun screens for the reason in attachments .
Also be careful what you get on your neck shower gels have sls a detergent to them ( ours don’t ) but 99% do and that’s a ageing chemical, also perfumes, hair sprays, etc cover your neck from any over spray and never go into the sun with alcohol based perfumes on the skin 
And that about the best you can do I’m afraid 


I would like to take this opportunity to advise how much I love your products. It is great to buy something that actually does what it says it should do.

Many thanks 

Omg! I've been using your products for three months now and love them!! One question, should I be using the luxury facial oil and serum on my eyes? A.. yes you can
Thanks for an excellent product and service

Hi, i have oily skin and i have been using Lemongrass Anti-Microbial face wash which is brilliant
Some time ago I bought your Organic Luxury face Oil for fine lines, with real patchouli, geranium and lavender. Also organic rejuvenating day serum with real orange and lavender.
Neither of these items appear to be available now. Please advise what should I buy as a substitute. Both were excellent on my dryish aging skin.

Hi John,
Thank you for your e-mail and for taking a look at my boudoir site, I have now put a link on there to essentially yours and have also added a page called Beauty which is dedicated mostly to your company. The reason I have done this is because after trying your 10 years younger kit, I have been so amazed with the difference in my skin I wanted people to know about it, I have also written a lengthy post dedicated to 10 years younger on a womens forum. I am so please with the kit, thank you so much, I look forward to buying your eye products which I really need. I would be interested in your affiliate site when you are ready, if you could send the details at your leisure
Thank you again it has been a real pleasure also being able to converse directly with you about my own beauty issues.

Hi John,

Many thanks for sending me the 10 years younger samples. I now have the full sized kit and am really pleased with the results. In due course I will be adding "organic" facials to my treatment list and using your products. In the meantime I would be grateful for your advice. 

For a 51 year old smoker, (yes I should know better!) I thought my skin was in fairly good condition, albeit beginning to look a little sallow/grey. However after using your 10 year younger kit, the improvements have made me realise that my skin wasn't as good as it could be. My skin looks brighter, fine lines and wrinkles have definitely diminished and the skin above my eylids look as though I've had eye surgery.......or perhaps thats just wishful thinking.... all within only 5 days. THANK YOU. 

Recently I have developed some age pigmentation marks and a few broken capiliaries on my cheeks. Although I do not suffer puffiness under my eyes I do have a tendancy to have dark circles (genetic pre disposition) Would you advise that I use the Regenerating facial oil instead of the facial massage oil and what eye cream would be best suited for me? Until 5 days ago I had been covering up the problem areas with concealer and make-up but would now love to be able to find a solution in your wonderful products, enabling me to ditch the make-up.

our reply 
Alternate between the oils so in the morning use the luxury and at night the regenerating now what this will do is repair at night and anti ageing in the morning 
Get into the habit of exfoliating in the shower once a week to freshen up the skin and take off dead skin cells 
For dark circles the restoring eye gel, use first before any oil and let it go in first about a minute should do 
You could use a eye cream but I think it’s too much the oils with the day serum on top will act like a eye cream 

Now sun bathing if your planning it ie holidays etc use sweet almond oil base ... but do follow what we say on the web site because the chemical of spfs will turn back any of the good work of the natural oils 
Hello John,

l would first of all like to say thank you for your products ( 10 years younger kit) which have worked miracles on my face l am 38 years of age and every one thinks l am 20 years of age& me too can see the difference in my skin and the fee
