This has got to be one of the best things I’ve bought from LUSH and I have a slight massive addiction for all things LUSH, so that’s deifinitely saying something! I’ve had this small pot now for a few months and due to running out of make-up wipes I started using it more and I’m so glad I did! This has got to be one fo the best make up removers I’ve used in a long time!
LUSH say it’s “A rich, soft, oily cleansing cream that cares gently for all skin types” and they’re spot on. I must admit though, I was a bit weary of putting something oily on my face as I have combination/sensitive skin but all my worries disappeared after using it!
You’re instructed to use your fingers to apply a layer to your face, the main ingredients (Almond oil and Beeswax) bind to the grease and dirt on your face which you then gently wipe it off using cotton wool soaked in warm water and voilà! Beautifully clean face as soft as a babys bum! It also contains Rose water and rose absolute which help balance and clam the skin, honey which soothes, moisturises and works as an antiseptic. For full ingredients see here. I also rubbed it on my eyes to remover my mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow and opened my eyes and waited for the stinging to start but nothing! I always have a problem with removing my eye make-up because everything I’ve tried to date stings so badly but not even a hint with this so worth it if you suffer for sensitive eyes!
It has a very thick, oily texture which is a pale yellow colour and has rather a strange scent which to me, smells a bit like off honey. I’m not overly keen on the smell at all but it’s definitely worth putting up with for a few minutes. The small 45g pot is £6.45 and £10.25 for the 100g but if you go into your local LUSH they will give you a sample to try if you don’t want to commit to buying straight away. I will definitely be re buying when I run out!
