Lush Baby Face Cleanser Review
I am reviewing a product here which is my most favourite product from Lush. It is a truly handmade, organic product and I simply swear by it.
The above picture shows how with regular use, the baby face has lost its perfect shape 😉
I first learnt about Lush when I was roaming aimlessly on the streets of Nuremberg in Germany in the summer of 2008. I was simply wandering around and spotted Lush – handmade cosmetics. For fun, I stepped inside and came out with a bag full of cosmetics. The entire credit goes to the SA there, a pretty German girl who politely explained me about Lush and assured me of its quality. She also convinced me to try out the products myself. I tried them and loved them!
Rs. 400 (approximately) for 35 gms.
Product Description from Lush:
Vegan (while all LUSH products are vegetarian, this product is vegan. That means it contains no eggs, dairy, honey, or other animal product, byproduct, or secretion). Baby Face gently cleanses skin to leave it soft as a baby’s bottom. Perfect for dry, sensitive skin or wind-whipped faces, it effectively removes makeup and dirt while its cocoa, shea and avocado butters smooth and soften. After applying Baby Face, simply wipe it off with a slightly damp cotton pad or face cloth. Preservative-free and unpackaged, this cleanser is easy on the environment too and the bar format makes it a cinch to travel with!
Fair Trade Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera), Fresh Avocado Butter (Persea gratissima), Tangerine Oil (Citrus Tangerina), Narcissus Absolute (Narcissus jonquilla), Everlasting Flower Absolute (Gnaphalium uliginosum), *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume. *Naturally occurs in essential oils.
My Take on Lush Baby Face Cleanser:
I totally, completely, thoroughly, heartily, merrily love this product. It is worth all the applause. Me being a dry skin woman, adore it for its ultra hydrating and moisturising properties. The cleanser comes in a face-shaped bar and thus the name baby face cleanser. It is very moisturising in nature and thus ladies who do not like oil may not like it as much as I do.
It can also be conveniently used as a makeup remover. It removes all the dirt, makeup and dust from your face and gives you a nice, clean moist look. Once you wipe it off with a cotton ball, it does not even look greasy, but still keeps your face kind of oiled. The product is totally handmade and prepared with natural oils so much so that you may have to store it in the refrigerator. I do store mine in my refrigerator along with the Lush Exfoliating cleansing bar.
I usually store all my Lush products in the refrigerator as they have a tendency to melt away even at normal temperatures. As compared to many cleansers, this may seem a little expensive, but then, it really comes for many months, so its okay. It is a total value for money. The only thing that irritates me a bit about this cleanser is that it is difficult to carry it along with you. It comes naked, on a plastic frame kind of a thing.
So, if you carry it just like that, it may melt inside the purse and foil the bag and other products as well. So, carrying it in a plastic pouch is the only and the cumbersome way!
All in all, it is a great product that I would love to have again and again mostly because it leaves my skin soft and supple after each use and makes it very tender to touch. In fact, I clean my face regularly at night with this baby face cleanser and apply Body Shop Sisho Night Cream. Earlier in summers, after cleansing the face with it, I never felt the need to apply a moisturiser over it. The cleanser did a good job of giving the necessary hydration to the skin, leaving it soft and smooth and the best part is that it does clean your face. It actually removes the grime. It can be seen below.
Pros of Lush Baby Face Cleanser:
- Highly moisturising.
- Leaves skin soft and supple.
- Removes dirt and makeup.
- Slight fragrance that is pleasing in nature.
- Survives for many months.
- Moderately priced as compared with other Lush products.
Cons of Lush Baby Face Cleanser:
- Can be too oily for some, particularly for oily skin.
- Some may find it not a good-enough cleanser, as it is a bit oily, sometimes one feels that the face is not properly cleaned. Though in that case, you can wipe off with an oil-free toner.
Will I Repurchase Lush Baby Face Cleanser?
Yes, though, I came to know that they have discontinued its making for some time. So, check out your nearest Lush stores, maybe you can find a piece or two! It is a boon for dry skin in winters! Trust me on that.
