Not in the ingredients:
Fragrance, I love fragrance though and most people don’t have an issue with it. Don’t see anything too heavy for an acne skin either – it certainly doesn’t trouble my spot-prone face.
Tube. The packaging is so ideal: light, not leaky – so easy to travel with. Nothing excess.
How to use:
Good for makeup removal, but personally I like to use this to clean my face. You can emulsify this by adding water and turning into a milk. I prefer to massage it into my face and then remove with a flannel.
£18 for 100ml
Cleanses skin, get off all makeup, leaves the skin soft. Such a universal cleanser. Gentle, and no greasy residue, so I think would be suitable for even acneic skins. Also, it smells lovely.
Wish it was more widely available, but that’s it always the case with small indie brands. Additionally, not everyone likes fragrance.
defo, to anyone.
