Yardley London English Lavender Deep Cleansing Luxurious Facial Foam Review
After reading Jomol’s review on Yardley face wash , I wanted to try one for myself since I too have oily acne prone skin. My current face wash was nearing its end so I ordered Yardley English lavender Deep Cleansing Facial Foam. The one that Jomol reviewed had English rose but I wanted to try the lavender one hence I got this. Lets take a detailed review of the same:

Price/ Packaging/ Quantity
INR 70 for 50 gms. It comes in an opaque cream coloured plastic tube with a lavender coloured flip top cap which clicks shut tightly.The packaging is quite travel friendly , the only drawback being the opaque plastic because you can not determine the quantity left. Nevertheless, it has a classy feel to it.
My take on the product:
Initially I was apprehensive about its usage because it claimed to be cream based and oily skin and creams generally do not go hand in hand. I squeezed out a small quantity . Since the consistency is on the thicker side I had to exert extra pressure to get it out of the tube. Once applied on the face, it foamed up well and spread nicely. After a minute of massaging my face , I washed it off with water and I was left with a smooth soft and oil free skin. It did not leave any slimey feeling or white cast or any other kind of film on the face, the face was squeaky clean Moving on to the fragrance, it has quite a strong one though quite pleasant still some no fragrance people may not like it. I was trying to figure out to what does the fragrance actually resemble but I could not find it ☹ it is quite a rich and royal fragrance. No wonder the product claims to be luxurious cleansing foam. All in all, I am happy with it and would recommend the same to oily skinned beauties.
