A recent Cleanser discovery in the form of this very basic yet very effective cleanser from Weleda. This is the Weleda Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion (£) I think the price point of the product makes this a really affordable cleanser for everyone’s budget. It is a ‘traditional’ cleanser in the sense that it is a cream texture that you work into the skin in circular motions then remove with damp cotton wool. If I am honest, I would scrap the cotton wool and grab a flannel or muslin cloth but if your skin is really sensitive then cotton wool might be the more gentle option.
The ingredients list is pretty small with :Water (Aqua), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Alcohol, Prunus Domestica Seed Oil, Xanthan Gum, Lactic Acid.
The Alcohol in the cleanser may be a issue for very dry skin, however I have been using this twice a day for the past week or so and I have found this to be very effective at removing makeup (Even mascara) gently. If your eye makeup is particularly heavy you may need to use a seperate eye makeup remover. The cleanser is suitable for sensitive skins & also suitable for Vegans too!
I have to say I am non overly keen on the packaging. I have a kind of metal tube with a screw lid which I can imagion may get a little battered about while on its travels so I think a plastic tube with a flip lid may have been a better design option.
