Ultra Bland is spelled with two words...not sure why it is listed as one for reviews?
Anyways, this stuff is amazing.
It smells lightly of honey and beeswax and has a nice creamy texture.
I've been using it to take my makeup off every night for the past 2 weeks, and I love the results. My skin feels clean and hydrated after I take it off, no irritation or anything. It removes my mascara really easily so I don't have to rub and rub.
Best of all, no break outs!
Last night I tried using my regular cleanser instead, and my skin instantly got red and irritated, not to mention that it didn't even take off all my makeup. And I woke up with a zit this morning. I will never go back to it.
I think I'm going to use ultra bland forever, I love it.
It also has many other uses, the SA's at Lush will tell you, you can use it as a moisturizer, lip balm, hair serum, etc. etc.
Update: took off a lippie. After using this for a month I started to develop huge breakouts and my skin is feeling oily as ever. Had to discontinue use since I am pregnant and getting some hormonal acne. I will try again when my skin returns to normal and see if it continues to cause break outs.

NOTE: Only got a sample to try but won't be buying a full size.
• Little to no fragrance which is good for sensitive skins.
• The sticky/hard formula was not to my liking. To hard to apply and WAY TOO HARD to get off. In the end, I still felt I had it on my skin even after taking it off with WARM WATER and using a toner afterwards.
• Made a few pimples appear. And for me thats a big sign not to use again as Im not prone to them.
This is the greatest eye makeup remover ever! I apply with my fingers and rub over makeup, then remove it with cotton pads soaked with eau roma water (toner by lush.) It's so gentle, and it doesn't hurt my eyes! I use it all over sometimes when I want to moisture that it leaves behind. It is a little tricky to use, but no more than most makeup removers. My little jar is lasting forever, so it's very economical. Highly recommended!
i received a sample of ultrabland and used it for a week. i really wanted to like it after reading all of the great reviews. it was very moisturizing the first night i used it but seemed to be less so each passing day. it's still pretty moisturizing but not enough to make me the purchase. i didn't have any difficulties removing it, however, it didn't remove my mascara, which was disappointing. it didn't break me out, which is always a plus. it was nice but i think i'll stick with my current cleanser.
UPDATE: i came back. i decided to give this another try and my skin looks great. better than usual. it has been removing my mascara and eyeliner (when i wear it). it still doesn't break me out. i've using it for the last 5 months. highly recommend for dry skin. it's now my hg cleanser.
I love this stuff. I use it at night before bed; I cleanse my face with this on a cotton pad and then I follow with the Lush Tea Tree toner. It is great for winter especially, when skin tends to be dry. It leave my face soft and clean! Plus it removes the heck out of eye makeup!
This is a terrific product. I've bought many tubs over the years, always coming back to it, and I can never understand why I strayed! This is how I use it. Apply a dime sized amount all over my face and eyes with my fingerips. Wipe off with a cotton pad sprayed with Lush Breath of Fresh Air toner. I then use another toner-soaked pad (usually a different toner) to get rid of all traces. My combination skin is clean but very soft and the softness lasts until the next morning. It is a bit fiddly and so I only use it for make-up removal at night, not for morning cleansing. I would love a pump action bottle, though.
My skintype: sensitive, combination, acne-prone, slight redness. I am a bit on the fence for this product. It does not remove makeup that easily. If i am wearing a full face of makeup (light foundation, concealer, blush, one-two eye shadow, one liner, mascara), i feel like i need to work this product a LOT for it to remove makeup and dirt. Also, it says that you must use a small amount that you warm up in your hands and you must remove it with a damp cloth. I find it difficult to remove all traces of this product from the face once i am done cleansing. It is like oil from your hand with a damp cloth. You can't remove it all. I guess that is why the skin does not feel tight in the end but i can't help feeling that my skin is still not thoroughly CLEAN. If you are acne-prone, beware of this product. I use this occasionally, meaning not more than once a week. I will not be able to finish the jar so i am trying to use up as much as i can by using it as a hand balm when my skin feels like it is cracking (due to harsh winter). Needless to say, i will not repurchase but i am glad i tried it since it is so popular.
I like this for removing eye makeup. I gently swirl on lids and lashes and remove with a dampened cotton pad. Gets rid of all traces and is gentle, at least for my eyes.
oh how i love ultra bland....
i use it as a cleanser (sometimes), as a makeup remover (daily) as a lip balm and to HEAL MY TATTOOS!
it's got all the good stuff in it rose, benzoin (nice and soothing to the skin), and honey, also very soothing. i use it instead of lotion during the healing process. because of the beeswax, it really helps to lock the moisture in my skin for a long time. i've used it on 3 tattoos with good results. helps keep my skin from scabbing up and cracking.
also i used to work for LUSH and i will tell you, i absolutely 100% recommend this product.
i love putting it onm my lips before bed i wake up with nice soft smooth lips. get the larger jar it'll last you forever.
if you dont want to use a toner while using this as a cleanser, you can rub ultrabland all over your face let it sit for a minute then scrub off with the equally amazing ocean salt cleanser. voila. go get this!
On the lid of the product it says "Recommended by 100% of LUSH staff" and I can believe it. This is an organic, mineral oil free version of cold cream. Instead of mineral oil LUSH uses peanut oil and honey, and this stuff can take off any kind of makeup. I've used this to take of waterproof eyeliner, mascara and foundation and it just took it right off. I love how moisturizing it feels on my skin also. You can also use this for facial massage as well as makeup removal. The cool part about this product is that you don't wash the cream off. Instead you remove it with a warm, wet washcloth and then rub the excess into your skin- no extra moisturizer required! I would recommend this for very dry skinned people like myself. If you have oilier skin, I think this might be a bit too heavy. After a year of use, no breakouts and my skin is softer than ever. I love this stuff! It is $29.95 for a big pot and you only need a nickel sized dollop every time you use it.
