I recently used up the last of my precious pot of Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm, and as much as I would like to say that I already had a backup/money is no object, I didn't/it is. Still, the thought of going without a cleanser in the balm category makes me cringe considering how much more lovely it has make my skin texture. With that on my mind, I decided I would give the much talked about Ultrabland from Lush a try.
I've had it for about two months now, and I feel that it is good. Not great, and certainly not a true replacement for my beloved, but I do like it. It's best as a morning cleanser, I find, as the waxy texture doesn't lend itself to the sort of massaging I use to remove makeup. It's much thicker than many of the balm cleansers I've tried, so you really do need a warm washcloth to remove it. It leaves my skin feeling clean but not stripped, and I feel like it's had a bit of a smoothing effect for my face. The jury is still out on whether or not I'll repurchase, but while I still have it, I'll quite enjoy using it. Good thing, since a little seems to be going a verrrrrrrry long way.
