Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser

Most people who read my blog will know that skincare is a big deal for me. I've mentioned numerous times on this blog that I've suffered with acne for most of my teenage years so keeping on top of a decent skincare routine is essential. A few months ago, I started an intense acne treatment and because of this it meant that I needed to change some of the products I was currently using to ones that were going to be more gentle on my skin, so today I thought I would share one of the best products that I discovered that has made a huge difference to my skincare routine over the past few months.

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Lush skincare. I wrote a post ages ago about my holy grail Tea Tree Toner Water, so of course when I was looking for a new cleanser that was going to be gentle and kind to my skin, the first place I turned to was Lush. I did some research and the product that seemed to be one of the best was this, the Ultrabland Facial Cleanser. The main ingredients in this are almond oil, rose water, beeswax and honey, and you can use it to either cleanse a clean face or to remove your makeup.
I use this in my evening skincare routine to take off my makeup and do a double cleanse. I dot the product all around my face and then rub it in with my fingers. This did feel weird at first because it feels like you're just massaging your makeup into your face, especially around the eyes, I end up with two massive black circles! I then take a giant cotton pad to wipe away the makeup and oh my goodness, this product is insane. I didn't think anything would take my makeup off as easy as my micellar water but nope, this product works better. It will only take me a few wipes with the cotton pad and my face is pretty much makeup free. I wear a lot of makeup so I always do a second cleanse, but if you're someone who doesn't wear that much then this product will have your makeup taken off within a minute. It's incredible. My skincare routine is so much quicker since I discovered this product.
The smell isn't the best in the world but it grows on you and I'm not really bothered about fancy smells, as long as the product does its job I'm happy! The honey and beeswax leave your skin so ridiculously soft and because my skin is horrendously dry right now it's so lovely having a cleanser that's really moisturising. I couldn't tell you if it improves acne or not because the treatment I'm currently on is the reason my skin's clearing up, but I have seen a few reviews that have mentioned it helps with breakouts. I can't promise you that this product will work for you or improve your skin, but in terms of its actual job of removing makeup and/or cleansing your skin, it's absolutely fantastic and I would highly recommend!

Have you used this product before?
