WARNING: If you have sensitive, pale or thin skin, do not buy! This was my first cleanser and it worked like a dream, until 4 months later. I started finding broken capillaries and veins on my face, and my face was dry and round from all the exfoliation. any exfoliation is still exfoliation!
Pros- good ingredients, fresh, cruelty-free, exfoliates softly, makes skin really soft and glowing, smells nice.
Cons- can get messy, a little too pricey, expires quicker. Also I use it in the shower and water gets in the cleanser making it gooey at the end.
Overall- I really liked this cleanser. It felt really nice rubbing this into my skin, and it was very gentle. The natural oils of this cleanser left my face soft and glowing.
This was my 1st Lush product ever, & I got this during my stressful university years when I was constantly breaking out. The smell was soothing, but the consistency took a while to get used to. It didn't foam up, & the bits & pieces that littered my sink post-wash made me guilty of how much product I was wasting. To be fair, it did sort of control my breakouts, & I remember being less oily whenever I used this. However, I found that this spoils/get molds easily so in the long run wasn't a practical/sustainable choice for a facial wash.
This brakes me out really bad! It leaves an oil film on your skin, wich some would like, some would hate..
I really wanted to like this product I tried it a few times before i finally gave up on it. Broke me out so bad
Got this as a sample when I ordered Lush's No Drought Dry Shampoo. It came in a little pot sample which doesn't bother me as the regular packaging on their website is pretty much the same. Thinking rationally, there really is no better way to package this cleanser. I looked at the ingridients and feared the oils would break my sensitive, dry, acne prone-face out but afterwards my skin is left so soft, massive pores unclogged and redness reduced significantly. I always dampen my face/neck first then apply this to different areas to be cleansed and the result is worth buying the 3 oz size off of their website. The scent is just an added bonus---> very minty fresh! Have found my HG cleanser :)
After the first three weeks of using this product, I was in love. I have normal/dry skin and battle with keeping my skin's texture soft and supple. This product scrubbed away all the driness and literally felt smooth as a baby's bottom. Problem is that after two months of using it now, that mega softness isn't there anymore. I do have to say that I haven't experienced any breakouts with this product so that is a major plus. I would re-buy but not before trying out other lush cleaners to see if I can get a lasting supple effect.
Love this cleanser! It is my favourite and is one I come back to time and again!
I feel like it calms my redness and my skin feels so soft after. It feels like I am exfoliating at the same time with the texture.
My gripes with it are that the little scrubby bits get in my hair and sometimes I miss washing them out so I look like I have dandruff and that it comes in this pot... you have to be careful not to get water in the pot while pulling out product or you'll end up with water at the bottom and that is just gross.
I highly recommend this product!
I love this product first and foremost because it's environmentally friendly. I'm all for that. The packaging is good too, it's non fussy though more prone to bacterial build up if not taken cared of right. The smell is wonderful, soft and light, very natural and not synthetic whatsoever. The scrubbing particles are soft too so you definitely won't feel anything too abrasive on the skin. As a matter of fact you might have to scrub a little harder to get it to break down your makeup more. It's overall a really great non abrasive light scrub for sensitive skin. I would recommend to wash once and scrub artificially and then wash one more time to get all makeup or residue off.
I absolutely love this product, it really helped balance my skin and didn't leave my skin feeling tight after I used it.
The packaging is a little frustrating so I pop a few uses worth into a sample pot so's not to get the large pot full of water while I'm in the shower/bath etc.
My only real gripe is with the use by date but that's what you get for buying fresh. To use it up I use it as a body scrub too and a nail scrub and it's wonderful for that use too.
It does feel a little odd at first like you're rubbing cake mix all over your face but it is so so worth it.
