Smelling of Roses - MuLondon's Organic Rose Foaming Cleanser
I'm quite fussy with my skincare. I never jump on the bandwagon, never believe all the hype and never, ever buy into advertising.
However, when Fi from the Beauty Shortlist raves about a product, I know it's going to be good. Actually, scrap that, I know that it's going to be incredible.
The MuLondon Organic Rose Foaming Cleanser is my newest skincare love, and I get the feeling that it's going to be a lifelong affair. You see, not only does it smell like a bed of the most beautiful roses (and, really, is there a more romantic, beautiful way to smell than of roses?), but it's also the gentlest, most delicate facial wash I've ever had the joy to use. My skin will redden or flare up in the face of any chemical nasties or harsh ingredients, yet this...I'd hazard a bet that even the most sensitive of skins could use it.
Made using gentle and natural (and divinely-fragranced) rose otto oil, rosehip extract (fantastic at helping to reduce the appearance of scarring) and rosemary, the cleanser works to balance the skin and cleanse deeply, all without stripping away your natural oils. It's also rich in jojoba oil, which helps to improve skin elasticity.
So, what's the verdict? Well, within a few days of using this beautiful cleanser, my skin looked fresher and more vibrant. It felt firmer, and smoother, and any redness or uneven tone seemed less noticeable. It also felt softer to the touch, meaning it's perfect for dry, mature or parched skins (and, let's face it, after summer holidays, we tend to need all the help we can get!).
Better still, you only need to use a small squirt of this cleanser for it to foam up and work the whole face. It's fantastic value for money (costing just £16 for 150ml) when you consider that it will probably last for months.
All in all, I'm completely sold by this cleanser, and I'm desperate to try other products for the MuLondon range. If you're yet to be convinced, just check out what Boris (founder of the brand) has to say on skincare: "If you wouldn't feel like eating it, an ingredient has no place in a beauty product".
Makes sense, doesn't it? Say no to preservatives, mineral oils, silicones and palm oil, and yes to more beauties like this!
