The cleanser cleverly contains Sucrose laurate (Sugar cane based emulsifier) that helps any oily gel cleansers turn to milk on contact with water. Milky cleansers don't foam but the emollient rich ingredients break down any previous products applied to the skin whilst attracting oil and dirt (like dissolves like) and washes them away easily whilst still respecting the skins natural balance. I was really impressed on how little you need on application for the cleanser to remove all the products with one cleanse whilst more importantly skin is left feeling soft and perfectly balanced and NOT over-stripped or feeling dry! Full review:
This cleanser is of a thick gel-like consistency, but it spreads over the face nicely. As you rub it in, the makeup visibly melts. I find it very effective, unlike many other cleansers I've tried in the past. Smells of herbs/spice but not too strong for me personally. I find using this cleanser very enjoyable, have already re-ordered as it works well and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.
I started using this after a rough few months of breakouts on my face - since using this it has calmed down and I've had one spot in two months, which is unheard of for me. I've also noticed a reduction in red patches and smoothed out some of the clogged areas around my chin. Even in the summer heat recently my skin hasn't been as oily.
The cleanser itself is quite a think gel-like substance, smells a little like curry, melts off make up easily and doesn't leave a residue on the skin.
Four stars purely because the bottle style isn't great, it's hard to travel with an open pump bottle and it's impossible to get the thick cleanser from the bottom when it's nearly empty.
This is lovely, a small amount goes a long way.
Maybe a got a bad batch or something, because mine comes out of the pomp in the texture of a slightly thicker toner, really watery, nowhere near a cream or a lotion or even a fluid. It does not smell bad and does some hydrating after multiple layers, but something tells me this is not how it is supposed to be (nothing like the picture in the description), it's also difficult to get one the fingers, because it simply runs down the bottle when coming out of the pomp.
