Yes very useful, though I recommend de-essing both the vocal (if necessary) and the reverb send.

For those who aren't familiar with the trick: simply insert a de-esser on the reverb bus before the reverb insert. This de-esses the signal going into the reverb but not the actual reverb output or the original vocal track.

You can often de-ess massive amounts on the reverb send without any sacrifice.
