Firstly, I must start with an apology, I know it has been over a month since I've blogged about anything but that's mainly because I am now in China and still haven't got my internet sorted (still borrowing). Anyway, I might do a post about my life in China a bit later on, if you are interested to hear about it. So, let's start with a review of a product that I have been loving recently, which is is Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser.
Lush's skincare is usually a bit of a hit and miss with everyone because they use natural ingredients (some that I might be allergic to). However, after I have been looking for a balmy-sort of cleanser (I am still wanting to try the Emma Hardie's one) that will remove my makeup without leaving my skin all dry and flaky. After one of my friend's recommendation, I came across this little pot of goodness!
I normally use this when I have been wearing a lot of makeup because I feel like it deep cleansing my skin when I am using it. I use it in a similar way to using a facial moisturiser, tiny scoop and then massage it onto my face (to melt off the makeup), then use a cotton pad to remove the makeup and then wash my face with warm water. Although, after this step, sometimes I don't really like the oily feel that the balm gives, so I would go over my face again with a cotton pad dipped in micellar solution. Having said that I really like how the cleanser makes my face feels really soft, every times I use it.
Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser has this bright yellow colour which I thought was fairly in your face at first but turns out that was just the outer layer of the balm, the actual balm itself is not that yellowy. I personally really like the thick balm consistency because I feel like it's removing my makeup by simply just gliding over it and melting it off. This balm has a fairly thick and cream like texture with what I feel like was tiny grains to buff over the imperfection. I have been consistently using it for about 3 months and so far I haven't had any skin troubles. So I think that it is a lovely gentle cleanser and it would be perfect for people with any skin types. Also, like the name suggests this cleanser is indeed ultra bland because it is very simple with not scent, therefore, I can't really find anything not to like about this cleanser.
What is your favourite type of cleanser? (balm, gel, micellar solution etc.)
