I really wanted to like this product. :[ When I first used it, it made me face really smooth and I thought I saw an improvement in my skin the first few days. But after that I kept breaking out in pimples, mostly on my cheeks and temples. Every single day it seemed like I was getting a new pimple. The pimples on my cheeks were very big, deep and painful.
I used the product for a total of 2 weeks. But i couldn't stand how bad it made my face look so I stopped using it. AND after 2 days of not using this product, my face got noticeably better, my pimples are clearing up already.
I might use this again, if only as an exfoliater, but that's about it.
I'm pretty bummed about this. :[

I was so excited for this product but sadly it hasn't been working. I have combination skin, normally some what oily and a few break outs here and there and have just been using the Simple face cleanser and toner and Cetaphil moisturiser and decided to change it up a bit.
After using it for 5 days I've noticed breakouts on my chin and cheeks. Definitely not a fan. Will be taking it back to my local store as the SA told me if it didn't work they can replace it with something different.

I have spot prone skin and it is dry and a little sensitive. Many of the things I have tried to sort my skin out have either been too strong for my skin and very drying or very expensive . I have tried everything even things from the doctor however I went into lush for my usual bubble bar and bath bombs and was having a browse at everything else . The sales assistant recommended this for my skin , and oh my lord , my skin is in the best condition it has ever been in for like 5-6 years and it's only after a few weeks of using this aswell as the tea tree toner from lush . This has now become a holy grail item for me.

If you've never used a Lush cleanser before, then you will definitely need to forget what you know about liquid and cream cleansers, because this will be a whole different experience. This is a green, pasty, clay like material in a black plastic tub, that has a bit of a vinegar smell to it; certainly not conventional. I recommend using it after you have removed your makeup with another method (makeup wipes, cold cream...etc) because this will do nothing to remove makeup. You simply take a dime sized amount of the cleanser into the palm of your hand, and sprinkle...and really just sprinkle about 5-10 drops of water on it, then start squishing and smashing it with your finger until it has become less chunky and more consistent, then start smearing this green glop onto your face and work it all around. I also recommend wetting your hands periodically to keep the cleanser moist and workable on your face. It does have ground almond in it, so it is mildly exfoliating. I would also suggest to make sure you are over your sink completely, because little bits of green matter will be left all around your counter top, it will get a bit messy. After you rinse your face, you are left with a clean and moisturized face. This product is not drying in the least, even if I finish up with ACV as a toner, I can still get away with not using a moisturizer. It also doesn't seem to make my face red like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid based cleansers do. I do think my skin had to go through a mild purging period before becoming adjusted to this product (my skin is definitely not used to oil based products), but it really was mild and surprisingly short lived. While this is certainly not a cure for my acne, it really does help to clear up and prevent it.

Ive repurchased this product 3 or 4 times now. It is HG for me, though a bit pricey. I am very acne prone, but this is quite gentle on my skin and does not irritate it. I actually LOVEthe smell, too. Overall, I think this has improved my acne in combination with other Lush products.

I thought this product was ok. It hasn't broken me out, I use it every morning and it gently exfoliates the skin without being too damaging. It hasn't had any dramatic effects but it has helped my skin and it feels better for the natural ingredients gone into it

GIVE IT TIME TO WORK!!!! I had extremely clogged pores and acne prone skin. So even when I wouldn't necessarily have acne, my skin was still bumpy. If you're on the fence about getting it, just go talk to a SA about it. This way they'll give you the right combination of products you should be using with it because unfortunately there isn't a "all in one" product for acne prone skin. I was recommended Ocean Salt and Fresh Farm along with it. My skin purged for about 5 days and I noticed a lot of smaller bumps everywhere because obviously when a product is cleaning out your pores, the only way to clean out is for the junk to "come out" so I was fine with the bumps and by day 6 and 7, I was SO amazed. Everyone started noticing how great my skin started looking and I couldn't be happier!! So my advice is to FIRST: Talk to a SA about your skin type and concerns and see what they recommend and SECOND: Give your products time to work.

I loved this cleanser at first. It seemed to be doing great things for my skin - it exfoliated it, made it even glow a little, and the problem I'd had with dry, peeling skin began to slowly fade whilst using it. Then my face broke out in a few places, just tiny red bumps, but I thought it may have been from going from a non-natural cleanser to a more natural one. You know, I thought my skin was adjusting. So I gave it time and the bumps went away. Everything went back to normal again. Then one night I noticed my skin was ultra dry again and peeling worse than before I used this. So I've stopped using it and am looking into another cleanser from LUSH. Also, just a sidenote, but I got Herbalism in a little clear plastic tub. Worst packaging ever, I lost two things of it just from the tub snapping and breaking in places. Really irritating.

This past summer, my skin went absolutely crazy on me. I was breaking out much worse than usual in big, horrible, painful pimples all over my face that took weeks to clear up. I tried several different treatments and cleansers and nothing was helping. Having had good luck with LUSH skincare in the past (particularly Fresh Farmacy and Coalface), I decided to give Herbalism a shot and see if it would help.
I think I've tried almost every cleansing roll LUSH offers, but I was hesitant to try this one because honestly, it stinks. It smells like herbs and vinegar, not in a good way. The scent is actually pretty strong, but I decided to suck it up and give it a go, and I'm glad I did. After using this for a few months, I'm pretty much used to the smell and it doesn't bother me nearly as much as it used to. I still don't really care for the smell, but it doesn't linger on the skin and this product gives good enough results to make me put up with it for a couple of minutes a day.
I know some people say cleansing rolls like Herbalism are a pain to use and are super messy, but I don't have a big issue with them. You just pinch a small amount off (I generally use about the size of a quarter), get it wet, rub it in between your hands until it forms a scrubby paste, and then just rub it into your skin. I will say, though, that I think this is easier and less messy to use in the shower than in the sink.
This feels nice on the skin and it gives a really light exfoliation.I thought this might be a little drying, like so many other cleansers for oily skin, but I think since this is exfoliating it helps with that. It rinses clean...I never have any residue left behind and it leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. I never had any skin irritation or other issues when using this.
This did really help clear my skin up. I don't think it's a miracle product...I still get the occasional break out, but when I use this my skin tends to clear up faster. I didn't notice a huge difference in how oily my skin gets throughout the day, though.
One thing I need to mention....PLEASE DO NOT get excess moisture into your tub. I kept this in a little hanging basket in my shower, far away from the stream of water, and I tried not to get too much water into the container as I scooped out the product, but I guess I did because this grew mold. No joke, I noticed disgusting black mold growing all over the bottom of the product. Thank goodness I saw it and was able to throw it out before I smeared it all over my face. Luckily I didn't have too much left, but please pay attention and keep this as dry as you possibly can!
Overall, I'm really glad I gave this a shot and I think it's a great product for acne-prone skin. I bought $10 worth, and this lasted me a little over 2 months using this once a day, so I think the price is pretty fair. I'll definitely be picking this up again next time I can get to a LUSH store (nearest one is 2 hours away :( )!

It was really disappointing for me as I was really looking forward to amazing results with this product.
I really love Lush, therefore when I wanted to try a new cleanser, Herbalism seems to have a lot of raves, so I got it. Mind you, it costs close to $30 in Singapore so I thought really long before purchasing it. Although it smells strange, I thought for beauty, I can get use to this product.
I have an oily T-zone and dry cheeks was looking to use this product as an exfoliator/cleanser.
The first time I tried it, my skin felt smoother. Sadly, it doesn't seem to have any results after that, I even spotted 4 new pimples at places I didn't used to have.
Now my skin seems to be in a bad shape, I'm not sure if it is Herbalism that broke me out, although I did not try any new products except this. In fact, I went back to Lush this evening and another saleslady said that Herbalism is actually quite coarse on the face. :(
EDIT: After using it for about 1.5 mths or so. I have to agree it has improve my skin condition over time, it is not so oily anymore. Also, it has made my skin feel soft every single time I used it. The reason I wouldn't buy it anymore is because I think my current skin condition is not suitable. But if you have really oily skin that shines in midday, maybe you can try this. :)
