The other day I told you about the face cream I’m enjoying at the moment – check it out if you have dry skin. I really enjoyed writing about it and thought I’d take some time to tell you about what I’m using to remove my make-up. It’s a product I’ve really enjoyed using especially as I’m trying hard to avoid facial wipes, unless I’m travelling. The product in question is – Nourish Cleanse Melt from Botanicals.
I’m a big fan of the Botanicals brand and have converted my mum, sister and friend to it. The brand was founded in 2004 by Wendy Stirling as she wanted to create skincare products which are as close to nature as possible. It’s a brand with strong ethics and one of a few skincare brands to be licensed by the Soil Association. Pop over to the website to find out more about the biz.
I’ve been using this melt for a couple of months now and it’s fantastic. It does such a good job at breaking down and removing my make-up whilst still treating my skin with care. It has a very thick consistency and a little goes a long way. It feels a little oily but once you’ve washed the product away your skin is left feeling soft, moistureised and not at all greasy.
I simply take a small amount onto my fingers and massage it into my face. I try to always use a damp face cloth to remove the product as it gives much better results. Sometimes I don’t have one to hand so I’ll simply wash it away and then double cleanse. It usually gets rid of my mascara with ease but sometimes I’ll use a little of this from Avene just to make sure.
The melt has such a lovely scent of rose which I find really calming to use in the evening. It’s suitable for all skin types but is particularly good for normal to dry skin. I have very dry and sensitive skin and haven’t had any negative reactions to it. It doesn’t irritate my eyes and actually leaves my skin feeling lovely and soft. I’ll 100% be ordering this cleansing melt again.
I’ve just remembered that I used to use the face balm from the Rose & Camellia range and it was really good. I must order some more. If you’re interested you can check out my review of it here.
Have you tried anything from the Botanicals range before?
