Spiezia Organics Facial Cleanser

October 22, 2009

A herbal cleansing oil formulated for deep cleansing, leaving skin soft and smooth.

“The wonderfully pure ingredients mean the cleanser can be left on the skin and used as a deep cleansing face mask and equally the power of the natural ingredients budge even waterproof makeup.”

  • Certified Organic by the Organic Soil Association
  • 100% organic
  • No harsh surfactants
  • Dissolves even waterproof makeup
  • Can be used as a face deep cleansing face mask and as a cleanser

I’d had my eye on this product for a while after discovering the oil cleansing method (using oils to remove dirt and oil from skin rather than water based lotions). I held off buying it because it’s quite expensive and I wasn’t sure if it would suit my skin.

This product is really suited to my skin type – cleansing often leaves it feeling tight and a bit sore. Ingredients like coconut oil and jojoba oil make it silky rather than gloopy and oily.

I only needed to use a pea size amount of this cleanser, which was enough to cover my whole face! I left it on for a couple of minutes, then removed it with a flannel/face scrubbie rinsed in warm water. During the leave on time, my skin soaked in some of the oils, which left it extremely soft afterwards – but for this reason I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it for oily skin types.

Another things to note about this cleanser is that it smells divine – very herbal, a little bit like pesto. It’s scented with eucalyptus, clary sage, clove, chamomile and calendula. Although it has a relatively strong smell, I had no problems using it to remove my eye makeup and it’s so gentle I think it’s well suited to sensitive skin.

This is one of the first Spiezia Organics products I’ve tried and I have to say I’m a convert! The balance of organic ingredient content, price and quantity needed for each application make this an excellent value for money product.

Summary

  • Pros: Very gentle on sensitive skin
  • Cons: Quite alot of money to spend if you aren’t sure whether it’s going to suit your skin

    if you want something cheaper but alike, try coconut oil ! it’s a bit messier since it melts in contact with the skin , but it’s very good as a make up remover and hair conditioning also :D i also love spiezia soaps, god they are goooood !

    Thanks for the tip, I will give that a go. I love their products too, my next Spiezia purchase will be the marigold sugar scrub!

    Marigold sugar scrub is most excellent, you need a small walnut size amount for the whole body! unbelievable! but true. ( wet the skin first or a little oil in the hand with the product) and after showering off I was left with such silky skin I didn’t even need to moisturise,
