Nourish Relax Softening Cleanser

Nourish Relax Softening Cleanser
I have had my eye on Nourish Skincare for few months. I think I discovered them via Twitter and have been watching their popularity grow. A couple of bloggers with blemish/acne skin types have highly recommended this budget friendly and natural brand. I finally finished up the Sophyto cleanser, was browsing Feelunique and added a Nourish cleanser to my basket.

Nourish's range covers four skin types - Protect for dry skin, Relax for sensitive skin, Balance for combination skin and Radiance for normal skin.  The products available in each range are cleanser, toner, moisturiser and serum. 

I chose the Relax Softening cleanser and its main ingredient is Lavender which is known for calming the skin.  I am fan of lavender  as I truly believe it helps with my sensitivities. I always incorporate it into my routine and I believe I have benefited from that over the years.  I love to add drops of lavender to my wash basin and soak my muslin cloths before cleansing. 

I know lavender is a love or hate it fragrance and this cleanser is very heavily scented with essential oil. I think it’s fair to say you really have to love lavender to use this product. I have been using this every day morning and evening since the start of November. This is a very simple and easy to use product. The instructions are apply to a cotton pad, sweep over face and rinse off.  My method has been wiping off with a damp muslin cloth, works equally well and is environmentally friendly as you save on cotton pads. 

The downside for me is I wish it had a thicker texture.  I prefer to use a rich cream cleanser and I would say this is a milky consistency. If you shake the bottle you can hear the liquid move. I also do not feel like I am getting a deep down clean and this only touches the surface although saying that it does remove foundation. I feel like I have to use a large amount so am not finding it economical.

Nourish are up front about their ingredients and a full listing is available on the website.  Fantastic for making sure there are no hidden allergens. Products are also suitable for Vegans. Whilst I have enjoyed using the product I would not purchase again.  However, that does not stop me from recommending to sensitive skin types, as long as essential oils are okay for you. Prices are reasonable and the cleanser costs £9.95 for 100ml. Click here to link to Nourish website.

  1. This looks interesting, especially for my extremely sensitive skin but I do prefer something that foams a little

    1. You will rarely find a cleanser suitable for sensitive skin that foams, mainly because SLS/SLES is a skin irritant, along with the action of using water to wash away the product which can be drying.

  2. I'd really like to try their balancing range. They do look like a really nice product range and quite reasonably priced too :)

  3. I prefer a thicker cleanser too, thin cleansers dont really work to absorb oils and whatnot

    1. I agree. There is something about a thicker cleanser that adds an element of luxury and you can take time massaging into your skin before removing. This just disappears and I can't work with it in the same way as other cleansers

  4. This sounds like something I would love. Cleanser is something I know I will need to repurchase on my spending bad as I am heading to the end of mine and I have no back ups. I may look into this range more, I do like a simple cleanser. x
