This is by far the best thing I have ever had on my face! I was extremely skeptical of using this at first because I have very sensitive skin and am prone to break outs and dry patches if my face doesn't agree with a product. I did feel a bit overwhelmed when I first enquired about this product as everybody in the shop was raving about it and from what I could gather most people were using it as a make up remover, which was not what I was after. However, after speaking to a very helpful sales assistant who explained that she too had dry/sensitive skin and suggested that this product really helped her, I was sold. Instead of cajoling me into purchasing a pot of the stuff though, she very kindly provided me with a tester for free. As I didn't want or need another makeup remover I washed my face with my normal Johnson's face wash and dried it as normal, I then slathered the Ultra Bland all over my face and left it on for as long as possible (about 15 minutes). It does make your face look extremely greasy so I wouldn't advise indulging in this if you have company, you might get some strange looks. After it had been on for awhile I used an old toner that I had laying around (I can't remember the brand) and some cotton buds to take it off. I wasn't expecting great things from this little 'tester' tub, but I was happily surprised! My face was the softest it had been in a long time and it stayed that way for 3-4 days afterwards! Needless to say that I was back into Lush the following week to buy an actual pot of the stuff, and I've been back 4 times since then to keep stocked up. This is a miracle in a pot to me and I would honestly recommend it to anyone who has trouble with dry skin or would just like a lovely soft face!

It's also great if you have dry/sore hands... Cover them in this and then put some plastic gloves on and leave for 10 minutes or so and when you take them off it's like a new pair of hands! An absolute wonder product.

I LOVE THIS STUFF.I have been given everything from the doctors for my acne from anti biotics, lotions that were really strong and dried my skin, the pill which cause migranies and also been refered to a dermetologist! I'm so happy to find this when I'm 21 as I know some people can suffer alot longer! SUFFER NO MORE!!


I have suffered with acne on my chin, jawline and neck for about 5 years now and was recommended this by a friend. To be honest, I didnt think it was going to be as good as she had said, however this product has changed my life!

I dont wear alot of make up, however after using this product for only 5 days, nearly all my spots have cleared up on my face and no new ones have reappeared!! I was wary of how oily this product seemed when i was rubbing it only my face, however one you damped the cotton wool and start wiping, it leaves you face clean, moisturised and soft! I also use Lush's Vanishing Cream as a moistuiser which also soothes my skin, although I wouldnt use this on my T-Zone in the morning as it can be a tiny bit oily.

The one tip I would say is DONT apply Ultrabland to your face and then slash with water as this will cause the product to split and will make your face oily.Just a damp cotton wool pad will be enough to remove grime!

I know this might now work for everyone, but i would certainly give it a bash!

Peace xxx

I have gone through three of those small pots in the past two years, using it on and off.
At first, I thought it worked really well, hydrating my skin and removing makeup, without giving me an oily feeling. I thought I had found the perfect cleanser/makeup remover.
Now, I can't use the thing. It doesn't remove my mascara and I am left with racoon eyes after my shower. It leaves my skin so oily and greasy that I need to use ocean salt to remove all excess oil from it. And I need to use soap to remove the product from my hands after applying it.
In the end, it really didn't do anything for me after a while.

The reason why I took off a lippie is because it does make me lose one or two eyelashes, it takes a while to come off, and it's pricey, BUT I love this stuff. I was looking for something to restore my skin's strange appearance because my cheeks were dry, almost flaky, AND oily. The saleslady recommended this product as a make up remover that restores my skin's moisture. I was sold when she showed me that it took off sharpie and that you didn't need to wash your face afterwards. I don't normally buy products this expensive, but since I was at a Lush store I decided to indulge and give it a shot. I haven't used this in the morning because I felt like it might be too oily for me, so I just use it at night time. Here's what I do: I dab a little bit of the Ultrabland on my finger by dotting the product a couple of times, and apply it onto my eyelashes. Then I gently rub, close my eyes, and start sweeping the product from the base of my lashes down to the tip. I do that for about a couple of seconds and resume rubbing left and right gently. I'd probably do this for about 1-2 minutes for each eye. Then I take a cotton pad and remove all the black stuff from my eyes. Next step: The skin. I do the same dotting method and apply a few dots all over my face and massage for about 2-3 minutes. After that I take another cotton pad and use my toner (I use Loreal Hydrafresh Toner) and cleanse the dirt, oil, and make up off my skin and voila! All gone. Afterwards I just apply my night cream and eye cream and I'm all set for the night.

The first night I used this product, my skin definitely was restored back to feeling hydrated and moisturized. Not only that, but I noticed that it cleared the dry whiteheads from my nose as well as some blackheads. Second night, I noticed that my skin's suppleness was coming back. I'm 16 so I don't have wrinkly bags or anything but my skin just looked more youthful. Probably because the Ultrabland was hydrating my skin more. Third night, my skintone looks very even and very healthy, even has that kind of glow to it. I love Ultrabland, I will buy the bigger tub my next purchase!

UPDATE: It's been more than half a year and I still have some left. Amazing I tell you!! I only use Bare Minerals and sometimes MAC's Skinfinish and this takes it all off, followed by J&J's head to toe face wash. For eye make up removal I use olive oil.
UPDATE: Been a year, still have some left. If I'm wearing liquid foundation I'll wash with J&J's head to toe followed by a gentle massage using a microfiber towel (exfoliates and washes out any traces of foundation, awesome!)

I go between using this and jojoba oil. Both great eyemakeup removers, and I use Ultrabland in the shower because it's thicker consistency means the product won't be running down my wet hands. Wonderful wonderful remover for eye makeup. Gently and effectively removes even my stubborn waterproof mascara with a bit of gentle coaxing onto my lashes. It's gotten into my eyes plenty of times and has NEVER irritated them. I've honestly had this same container from LUSH since... 2007, 2008 and it's 2011 now! Not that I've been using it since day one everyday and it's lasted me this long (although since I use so little, it can easily last a long while), but that LUSH has a recommended date of usage on their packaging that generally doesn't extend past six months (possibly a year?) but this has been going strong and I've never noticed funny smells, color changes, or the product separating or turning dry and clumpy.


My only gripe is the packaging. It is a sturdy plastic container jar but I'd much prefer it in a squeeze tube for sanitary reasons, plus it would be easier to dispense. I've largely gotten over the gimmicks of the majority of LUSH's marketing and products, but I'll keep returning to them as long as they continue selling this.

I love this stuff! I rub it on my face then wipe it off with damp cotton wool pads and it works great. It's the only stuff I've used that doesnt sting my eyes when I remove mascara. This is the only make up remover I've used for the past few years and I usually can't wait for things to finish so I can try something else! If you have oily skin I'd recomend washing your face after using it but even when I've left it on it didn't make my combination skin break out.

I use this to take off my make-up at the end of the day and it does such a good job! It thoroughly removes all make-up from my face and leaves it feeling really soft and hydrated. Even though I have oily skin I quite like that it leaves a VERY slight greasy residue as it stops my face feeling tight like other make-up removers. I've also found that by using this every night it has made my skin a little less oily during the day - must be something about skin getting more oil so it doesn't produce as much of it.
I still use a eye make-up remover with this as I find it too heavy around the eyes, and not thorough enough at removing mascara. However, on my face it's fantastic and I will purchase this again and again. I bought the larger tub for just under 10 - it's not huge but a little goes a long way so it's well worth it!

Im on my 2nd pot of this. This is simply the BEST makeup remover I have ever used. I tried foam, gels, oils but nothing can beat this cleanser. Aside from cleansing, it also moisturizes my skin. I cannot imagine life without Ultra Bland. I put this on my face and wipe it off with a cotton pad that I sprayed with Lush Tea Tree Water or Breath of Fresh Air. And i love them so much.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this cleanser! I have never used anything that works as well as this does at removing eye makeup. My mascara and eyeshadow both literally melt off when I rub this on my eyes. It's expensive, but you really don't need a large amount. I'm thinking that my little tub will last quite a few months. It's a fabulous night cleanser because it does leave your skin feeling moisturized when I am finished using it that I really don't need to moisturize. It's great...I love it!
