🍃Welcome to another fabulous product review✨ I know I’ve not been very active on the blog lately, but I’ve been bogged down by assignments ➕ I am fasting , so I am literally sapped of all energy 💧during the day.
🍃Anyway since I finished my assignment a week ahead of the deadline for once 🎉. I made a beeline for the mall the very next day 😍🛍. I had run out of my cleanser, moisturizer and body wash so I was really looking forward to some much needed retail therapy.💸
🍃Since it was the middle of the week in Ramadan🌙 no less, the mall was deserted 😍❗️So for once I was able to go into the Lush store and look around in peace ☮. Usually the store is packed 😡 and the assistants are harried and you have to wait forever to get a turn at the basins 💧to try out something.
🍃Today, I was assisted by one of their lovely employees who let me try out the different products to my hearts 💕content and I came away clutching my haul happily.
🍃The product i’m going to review, is the 🍃Lush Herbalism Cleanser. Lately my skin has been going into oil production overdrive and using conventional acne cleansers including my beloved Alba Botanica were not helping matters 😡. Plus my regular moisturizer was leaving my skin looking like fly paper so I figured it was time for a change.
The 🍃Herbalism cleanser is unlike any I’ve tried before. It is a bright green, crumbly, damp powder which is tightly packed in the standard black Lush pot.
🍃Key ingredients : Kaolin clay, rice bran and ground almonds . 🍃You take a small pinch of the cleanser, wet💦 your fingers and rub in into your palm. When it comes in contact with water it becomes like a paste which you can then rub over your face. It doesn’t have any discernible fragrance just a very mild herby scent.🍃 It does not foam or produce any suds, instead it had a mild scrub like texture. Weird I know, I am so accustomed to suds that I was very skeptical about the product actually cleaning my face.
🍃However once I dried my face I was pleasantly surprised to find that my face was not only clean it was sans that dryness and tightness that I get post washing that immediately makes me reach for my moisturizer.
🍃My skin felt soft and clean, though I did follow it up with the Lush Vanishing Cream ( Review coming soon!). I really can’t be without moisturizer.😳 Fast forward 8 hours later my skin is moisturized and soft but not oily✨ No shiny, spot a mile away T zone❗️
🍃All in all so far I’m really liking this cleanser, I admit the oil control factor has to do with using in conjunction with the Vanishing cream. Even so I give it 4/5✨
🍃Have you guys tried the Herbalism cleanser? What are your favorite products from Lush?
Until next time xoxo💋❗️
💟Let’s hang 😉
