I've always been a huge fan of Lush but only every bought bath bombs and bubble bars, I've never really bought what I would consider to be essentials. I contacted the lovely peeps at Lush via the power of Facebook and they recommended Ultrabland. So off I toddled to my (almost) local Lush and they very kindly gave me a small sample pot.
'Based on an ancient Roman formula for cold cream, Ultrabland is beautifully simple and very effective. Made with almond oil, rose water, beeswax and honey, this cleanser removes all traces of dirt and makeup, without stripping away your skin’s natural defences.' text from Lush website
I have used cold creams in the past but I tended to find them a bit thick so I was sceptically. Using my fingers to rub the cream onto my face, I left it on to do it's magic whilst I brushed my pearly whites (I even multitask my beauty regime!) and then using a reusable washable cotton pad (better for the environment than disposables) dampened down with warm water I removed all the cream. I found a couple of gentle wipes over my eye area was enough to remove all trace of make-up, no scrubbing at stubborn eyeliner or mascara.
At £10.95 for a 100g pot it's definitely worth the pennies. I found that I didn't need much, it smells beautiful and left my skin feeling nourished. I purchased a full pot within the week, and I feel anything but Ultrabland! 8/10 KDS stars (a little pricey but worth the money.)
