Tested on animals in home country/EU/sold in territories that advocate testing?
No/No/No – Josh is fully against animal testing.
How does it smell?
Herbal. No pun intended. Nice herbal, not coriander (cilantro) filth.
How do you use it?
Apply to dry skin, massage in thoroughly, remove with warm, damp facecloth. Josh advocates dry cleansing, which is interesting, but would kill me (thank God I’m not dramatic).
First cleanse/second cleanse or AM cleanse?
This is a good cleanser ingredients-wise. I use second cleanse or AM cleanse, getting the full benefit.
Best for winter or summer?
Does it remove waterproof eye makeup?
Yes, but don’t waste it on that.
How long did I test it for?
A few months, on and off.
How much is it? /Size
$44.00/£32.50 for 60ml
Works well with?
Anything. It’s a cleanser.
What’s the website like?
Good. Lots of info, including ingredients.
How’s the distribution? Available freely or limited?
What’s good about it?
This is a lovely organic oil cleanser, that leaves the skin completely calm and soothed. It’s anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-microbial and antibacterial and balances oil production, cleans up dirt and brightens the skin. It feels beautiful to use. If you like cleansing, if you like organic, and you like oils, this is bliss. Josh only sources the finest ingredients and does so ethically.
What’s not so good about it?
It’s not the cheapest oil out there for the size, but it’s entirely organic, and that doesn’t come ‘cheap’. Use it as a morning cleanse to wake the skin up, not in the evenings to wash away makeup, it’s far too good for that.
Would I purchase/repurchase?
Yes. It’s lovely.
Do you need it?
If you can afford it, yes. If not, stick with chemist alternatives.
