Review | Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser

I am trying really hard to use only natural and organic skincare products at the moment. I believe your skin is something to invest in - let's face it, we are stuck with it for a while! - so if it means paying a bit more for products which are healthier for you and your skin then so be it. I now don't base my skincare choices on being reduced in price down to £1 in ASDA, let's put it that way!

I recently went into Lush to buy a few bath bombs to cheer myself and ended up coming away with a few skincare products instead. I have tried a few skincare products from Lush before, including the Lush Cosmetic Warrior Fresh Face Mask which is, hand on heart, the most repugnant thing I have ever tried. The smell was horrific, as was the texture and whilst the results were good, I just couldn't stomach using it or putting it anywhere near my face. That was a while ago so I decided to try again and buy two different products, a face and body scrub and the Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser.

About the Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser:
"Based on an ancient Greek 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. Smooth over the face, any dirt will cling to the cream and you can remove it with a warm damp cloth or cotton wool."

The Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser is designed to melt away any traces of dirt and make-up without being harsh on the skin and it definitely achieves that. Believe it or not, there are only 10 ingredients within this cleanser, 8 of which are entirely natural. Some of the ingredients include rose water which calms and soothes the skin as well as hydrating with the use of almond oil so if a natural cleanser is something you are after, then this one definitely lives up to that.

The cleanser comes in either a 46 g tub or a 100 g tub, with the latter being more value for money. It smells incredibly fresh and light in the tub and is so light and creamy in formula. I know a lot of cleansers are used for removing make-up but I prefer to do this first with a make-up removing wipe then go in with the Ultrabland Cleanser to remove any final scraps of make-up and dirt afterwards. My skin was left feeling so soft, clean and refreshed after I had washed it off with a warm cloth and as cleansers go, it does a pretty damn good job.

It is so hard to really rave about a cleanser when they all vaguely do the same thing and give the same results but if you are after a cleanser which is made up of (mostly) natural ingredients which isn't tested on animals, then the Lush Ultrabland Cleanser is definitely for you.



  1. This cleanser sounds lovely. Ive never tried a face cleanser from lush before but I love all of their other skincare products.


  2. Love that it isn't as harsh. I love using face scrubs as it makes me feel the most clean and seems the most effective!

  3. This sounds really nice. I love The Body Shop cleanser but I've run out, so definitely up for trying something new! :) xx

  4. I'm exactly the same. I always go with a facial cleansing wipe first and then take off the rest of it with my ultrabland. It's personally one of my all time favourite cleansers because it's so great for people with dry skin! Also that Lush Cosmetic Warrior Fresh Face Mask sounds horrific. Just googled it and sorry, garlic?! I couldn't think of anything worse! xx


  5. I have heard great things about this cleanser, fantastic review! Xx
