How to use
Take a blob of the cleanser & warm it in the palm of your hand. Apply straight onto dry skin & massage in for a minute, starting with your face & finishing with your eyes (so you don't smudge black everywhere), spend extra time massaging where make up is heaviest & it will melt it away. Take your muslin dip in warm water & squeeze most of it away. Wipe away your eye make up, rinse the cloth again then hold it against your face to steam & activate the oils, then wipe it all away with cold water.
I got this as a sample and was super excited as I debated a while back whether to get this or the Emma Hardie. I’m glad I supersized the Emma Hardie because I didn’t like this! Firstly the product came out nice and thick which I liked but was taken aback by the smell. Was breathing through my mouth the entire time so I didn’t gag. It took makeup off just as well as the Emma Hardie though. I just had to wash my face with another cleanser after to take the smell away! Sticking with EH!
I got a small size pot of this in an advent calendar and I could see the results after just one use. It feels luxurious and is a pleasure to use. The clove smell isn’t to everybody’s taste but I personally love it. My skin tone has evened out, it is soft and has smoothed out any little bumps. I was using a neals yard cleanser prior to this but this is far superior to any cleanser I have ever used. I look forward to using it every evening, in love!!
This is just fab - I'm a busy mum who needed to revive and boost my tired skin. It's worked wonders!
Wanted to love this, but
Got this great sized sample in the goodie bag always wanted to try it as I love balm cleansers but this broke me out big time. I generally don’t get spots but after using this at night time the next morning I had spots everywhere and not small ones, some were really deep and pus filled, thinking it couldn’t have been the cleanser from one use I tried it again at night time and yet again the next morning I woke up to a face full of spots. Very disappointing as it’s such an expensive product just glad I didn’t fork out for it myself.
An expensive mistake
This was my first experience of a balm cleanser and I had really high hopes. Unfortunately this product made my sensitive skin break out in small white spots (??) which I've never experienced before. I personally didn't enjoy the smell either. It does remove makeup well, so perhaps for less sensitive skin types this might work better but overall I wouldn't recommend.
