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.
- 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
