100% Organics Cleanser


100% Organics has been on my radar long before blogging. I spotted the cleanser in TK Maxx for £11 which is a bargain worth grabbing as it retails for £29 (100ml). As the name suggests this is a 100% organic company. Apparently it is just one of a handful of companies in the world that are 100% Organic Soil Association accredited.  Products are created in Cornwall, are not tested on animals, suitable for vegetarians and free from synthetic ingredients. 


This cleanser is a rich, soft balm similar to others on the market such as Suti and Lulu & Boo. I honestly can not find fault with the product. It leaves my skin feeling soft, glowing and without greasy residue. I like to spend time massaging into my skin and then I remove with a damp bamboo cloth. A muslin cloth would work in the same way but bamboo holds the heat so I like to hold it to my face for a few seconds before I start wiping. As you can see from the ingredients listed below this cleanser is full of natural goodness. 

Ingredients - cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, sesamum indicum (sesame) seed oil, cera alba (beeswax), simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, calophyllum inophyllum (tamanu) seed oil, corylus avellana (hazelnut) nut oil, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) flower oil, plantago major (plantain) leaf extract, calendula officinalis (marigold) flower extract, hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) leaf extract, rosa canina (rose hip) fruit extract, pelargonium graveolens (geranium) flower oil, oenothera biennis (evening primrose) seed oil, anthemis nobilis (roman chamomile) flower oil, melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil 

The fragrance comes from essential oils and I pick up on the camomile and lavender. I imagine the cleanser may smell differently to others, there are many fragrances in the ingredients, just depends on your sense of smell. 

I love balm cleansers so it is no surprise that I am enjoying using this. Now if like me you initially gasp at the retail price (£29 for 100ml) I have compared it other cleansing balms I have reviewed. Suti Cleanser £26 for 50ml and Lulu & Boo Organic Cleansing balm £23.50 for 50ml. When you think about it the cleanser is reasonably priced compared to the competition. Overall, this gets a thumbs up from me.  If you see 100% Organic products in TK Maxx I suggest you grab a bargain.

  1. I've always wanted to try a balm cleanser, can't believe you managed to get it for £11! Its such a shame it contains hazelnuts as I'd have gone on a hunt for it otherwise :( xx

    1. I know it was a good find, I love having a rummage around TK Maxx beauty it's my new hobby lol. Oh that is a shame about hazelnuts, I was in TK at weekend & found 100% organics in the clearance again, may be worth seeing if you could use any of the others products from this company :)

  2. Before reading this I had never heard of a Bamboo cloth... I think I'm going to have to do some research! I have a little sample of this and I am excited to try it out. It's such a lovely brand. I love that it's 100% organic AND a UK brand. I find since I have switched my skincare to all natural and organic brands and products, I spend so much more time on my skincare routine and really massaging everything in. It's lovely :) xo

    1. Bamboo cloths are thicker than muslin, more like a traditional flannel, the ones I have come with Tropic cleanser but I am sure there are others on the market. For me natural skincare changed my skin for the better so it is worth the investment of your time pampering yourself :)

    1. Let me know if you find it, I think it would be worth try other products from the brand if you find them instead of the cleanser :)
