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 honestly don't know what I (or my skin!) would do without this product. I have extremely sensitive skin that can dry out at the drop of a hat and this is the only moisturiser that doesn't leave my face feeling tight and stinging. I love the packaging that it comes in and the fact that it doesn't have much of a smell, it, like it's name, is simple. I've tired numerous other brands of moisturiser over the years and it was in desperation that I decided to give this one a go, and I'm very happy that I did! In the summer I use this product in the mornings before I apply my makeup and find that it keeps my skin feeling fresh and moisturised for the majority of the day. In the winter I also apply it before I go to sleep as my skin tends to dry out more during the winter months. I also team this with a product from Lush called Ultra Bland (THE best thing I have ever put onto my face) and it leaves my skin in considerably better condition. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone that has sensitive/dry skin. I don't know what I'd do without it!
