Description

Luxury organic foaming face cleanser with Rose Otto oil, Rosehip Extract and Rosemary Antioxidant. This amazing trio will clean, balance and nourish dry, irritated and sensitive skin. These precious herbal extracts and oils are carefully balanced and hand-blended in a base of certified organic castile soap. This creates a unique, light, divinely fragranced and fluffy foam that is packed full of nutrients for your skin.
The essential oil of Rose I use is certified organic and steam distilled - it is not solvent-extracted, as is the case with the cheaper rose absolute. Thirty roses must be used to make a single drop of Rose Otto - this is why this oil is the most precious essential oil in the world.
The Rosehip extract I use to make this cleanser not only feeds the skin, but also imparts a healthy shimmer and a rosy glow. Added certified organic Rosemary Antioxidant helps replenish and revive the skin.
Based on certified organic castile soap, the Rose cleanser is free from SLSs and detergents, so it will gently clean without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Great for everyday, all-over face, hands and body use. Fantastic for shaving! Goes great with MuLondon Organic Rose Moisturiser.

Strongest points
Easy to use pump, cleanses skin well
Weakest points
Dries out skin and scent is soapy and strong
Summary
When I first got this wash, the product had separated and I needed to shake it.

The pump was easy to use, dispensing foam which applied to the face well and foamed up, cleansing the skin very well.

The scent was quite strong and very soapy.

It was exactly like a bar of soap, but in a foam.

After use I found my skin was very dry and tight, I had to use a really good moisturiser to make my skin feel less tight and dry.

It is a good cleanser, I feel for more oily type skin.

I personally wouldn't recommend this for dry skin, but other skin types, yes!

Strongest points
This product was very easy to use, the pump action dispenser producing the perfect amount for one wash
Weakest points
The scent of rose was very delicate and virtually overwhelmed by the unmistakable fragrance of soap
Summary
Undoubtedly a very long lasting product as after nearly three weeks of use it is hard to tell that any has been used at all therefore far better value for money than expected. However I was disappointed with the soapy fragrance and found the overall effect very drying to my skin.

Summary
This product comes in a fairly good size pump action bottle for its price. This method of use, means you don't use too much. One squirt is more than enough for general face washing. The Liquid is turned into a foam once dispensed. The foam texture is light and creamy. Once you have dampened your hands, then squirt this wash onto them, and gentle wash around your face, careful of eyes. The foam is not a heavy or overly bubbly. You can feel the gentle bubbles on your skin, they have a lovely creamy consistency, not only washing but cleansing at the same time. They are so smooth and light, skin feels silky when using. The scent of this wash is Rose, now its not like a heavy scent rose in the garden, nor is it like having a Turkish Delight hint, it is infact very mild and not clingy. The wash removes very well on rinsing with warm water. Skin does feel clean, almost deep clean. On my first use of this wash, I loved the cleaning ability and gentleness, however after drying my skin did feel tight and dry. This worried me slightly as it seemed to have removed natural oils within the skins layers. I left the skin bare, no moisturiser for about 10 mins to see if the skin recovered, it did. My skin began to feel smooth and fresh, and the dryness left, and a softness began to return. I sometimes think facial skin can instantly react to something new and can be offputting if the desire effect isn't achieved. I will say I persisted and the initial dryness subsided after a few days of washing , and now my skin just feel really clean and has a healthy glow. This is a gentle, mild wash that only alittle is needed and the bottle will last for quite awhile..

Strongest points
Good pump action, easy to dispense, effective at cleansing, good quality texture, mild on sensitive skin. A natural product.
Weakest points
Can feel drying on the skin.
Summary
This product goes a long way. One pump gives a rich foam which is sufficient to cleanse the face thoroughly. The product feels luxurious on the fingertips and is easily worked to clean the face entirely. The product can be a little drying on the skin leaving it feeling a little tight, and requiring moisturisation. The facewash is mild enough to use on eczema prone skin, leaving it feeling thoroughly cleansed.

Strongest points
Fantastically economical, easy to use and very effective
Weakest points
I'm not keen on the scent (but it doesn't put me off) and it can dry your skin if you use too much.
Summary
I've been using the Lavender version of this for about four months and in that review I only rated the value for money as a three but since then I've found out that the product is fantastically economical. After four months I've used less than a quarter of the products. This is because you need just one (light) pump to easily have enough to wash your face thoroughly - I've added a picture of just how much you get from a single pump. The other economical factor is that the nozzle doesn't leak or foam after you use the pump which means that you don't waste any of the liquid.

I've compared all of the ingredients between the one I currently use and this one and the only difference is that one has the lavender essential oil and this one the rose essential oil (plus Rosehip extract) and that leads me to my (very slight) downgrading of this one: for me the rose scent seems harsh and less pleasant than the lavender one. Now this is a change for me as lavender isn't my first choice but for some reason it works for me better in this product.

So how well does it work: extremely well but you have to be careful that it doesn't dry your skin too much (again making sure you use the right amount helps). Genuinely this is an excellent product and it works very well.
