I wish that you were cheaper

A friend of mine recently upped sticks and moved to another corner of the world and in her wake she left me with a new cleanser to try out.

Elemental Herbology Cool + Clear Facial Cleanser

Packaging: A heavy glass bottle that could be a perfume bottle in another life. I would have liked it an awful lot more if it had a handy pump.

This is essentially an oil cleanser that is not to oily in fact to me it sits in the middle ground between oil and gel. This has the bonus of making the cleanser shower friendly which is a huge plue point for me.

The formula is soap free and contains green tea, olive and lavender flower extracts. Which combined are supposed to do wonders at balancing the skin, removing the gunk (also known and impurities), and leaving the skin feeling so fresh so fresh so cleeeeean!

My thoughts: I am a huge fan of cleansing oils so this really had to do some work to impress me. However, despite myself, I am honestly impressed with this product and if it were not for the big ole price tag, I would find myself buying more!

I found this cleanser to be a bit like a good maths teacher; thorough but gentle. So after each go, my skin was left clean even after a full plastering of make up. Although the product is purported to be especially beneficial for those with sebum imbalances, this also worked well with my dry/combo/sensitive skin and caused no ghastly reactions or breakouts. I do have to note that although this doesn’t leave much in the way of residue, I still follow each use with a gentle washing powder, the FANCL one is my HG.

The Cool & Clear cleanser does have a strong fragrance and although my natural preference is for unfragranced cleasing oils, this didn’t bother me much.

I do so wish that the Cool & Clear cleanser were cheaper because at £28.00 per pop, I just cannot justify buying it especially as there are some excellent cheaper alternatives currently on the market.

* The Elemental Herbology Cool and Clear Facial Cleanser is free of mineral oil, synthetic fragrances and parabens*
