Directions

Ingredients

Ground Almond (Prunus dulcis), Glycerine, Kaolin, Water (Aqua), Lavender Oil (Lavandula augustifolia), Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena), Chamomile Oil (Anthemis nobilis), Tagetes Oil (Tagetes minuta), Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax benzoin), Lavender Flowers (Lavandula augustifolia), *Limonene, *Linalool.

Strongest points
Unique. Does leave skin clean and wonderfully soft. Cleans and scrubs in one. Soothing. Non drying. Natural.
Weakest points
Messy. Expensive. Doesn't look very nice. Only available at Lush, and there isn't one close to me. Short shelf life, due to the natural ingredients.
Summary
It's a treat product for me. I do love it, but it's quite expensive and hard for me to get.

A very effective cleanser, but can be a bit of a messy inconvenience in the morning.

Nice scent. A cleanser and scrub in one. Far less abrasive than some scrubs, so good for sensitive skin. The essential oils are very soothing.

Much too messy. Not very attractive.

Would I buy this again? Well yes and I have often. It is one of my Lush regular purchases as it does such a wonderful job of gently exfoliating and cleansing my face without leaving it dry at all. A pot of this lasts me about three months as I use it at least three times a week and I do also use it on my neck too.

This fresh cleanser is designed for those with normal or dry skin but can really be used by anyone as it is suitable for all skin types. This is Lush’s best selling cleanser globally and it is the number 1 product sold in Lush’s Japanese stores.
This cleanser like the other fresh facial cleansers is preservative free and is based on a medieval recipe and is full of quality natural ingredients. I love the smell of this too as the almond scent combines with the rose absolute and lavender and creates a lovely fresh but clean and unique scent. The new ‘Putty in my Hands’ hand cleanser has the same sort of smell and it is almost impossible to describe and possibly not to everyone’s taste but I love it.

My skin tends to be a bit sensitive and so I try not to treat it too harshly and this is just perfect. It exfoliates with gentle ground almonds which do not dry the skin as they are full of lovely natural almond oil which is so good for the skin.
Lavender and rose absolute essential oil are both great for the skin as they are healing and calming and also smell gorgeous too.
Glycerine helps to soften the skin to make it ready to absorb the gentle oils in the almonds as well as all the essential oils like lavender, rose absolute, chamomile blue oil and others. The rose absolute oil, lavender oil and chamomile blue oil also all help to calm any skin sensitivity or soreness. The kaolin helps gets rid of excess oil on the skin’s surface. These ingredients all help the facial skin balance so that if you have a combination skin this is perfect. It will enable the dry areas to absorb the beneficial oils and reduce the oil on the greasier areas.
Although this looks pretty ordinary and not in the least exciting it is one product that I buy regularly from Lush as it does such a great job. It is not a harsh scrub at all it is actually quite a gentle exfoliant but even so do not rub your face while using this, just gently massage this over the oily parts of your face.
This cleanser has an unusual but actually to me rather lovely smell. I do often just open the pot and have a sniff as it is amazingly fresh and appealing in a strange earthy yet floral sort of aroma.
The idea is that you take a small amount, just a bit bigger than a pea and put this in one hand. Add a little water and with a finger rub this into the palm of your hand until you have a softish paste . This wet soft paste is what you use to cleanse your face. I very gently, using just a little water rub this into my face in a circular and upward motion. You don’t need to rub hard just really gently massage your face with this and then rinse it off with warm, not hot water.

It is not cheap but apart from that nothing - I an't fault it
Summary
I find this does an excellent job of gently cleansing and exfoliating my entire face leaving it feeling soft and really lovely. I use this at least three times a week and have done for some years now and I have never had any problems at all with any sensitive skin.
