What Escentual staff say

"In my spare time, I set up my own beauty, fashion and lifestyle blog and a few months ago took the plunge to change my career by doing something I’m truly passionate about and this is when I started working for Escentual as a copywriter. I write the product descriptions for the website and love finding out about all the latest beauty products, this really is my dream job and the best advice I can give someone starting out their career is that it’s okay to not ‘know’ what you want to do early on in your career, sometimes it’s about trying new things and gaining experience to lead you to something you’re truly passionate about.’’
