Review: Lush Ultrabland Cleanser

I purchased the Lush Ultrabland Cleanser when I updated my skincare routine about a month ago and I've fallen in love with it already. It's really become my staple skincare product and I haven't gone a day without using it since I brought it.
This is what Lush say about Ultrabland ~

Ultra effective, ultra gentle face cleanser

A rich, soft, oily cleansing cream that cares gently for all skin types.
Softens the skin whilst thoroughly cleaning it – this product is super effective at its job.
Based on an ancient beeswax and vegetable oil formula from the times of Galen, the Greek physician and philosopher, this product will lift dirt, grease and make up from the skin, without stripping away your skin's natural defences.
I use this cleanser to both remove my makeup in the evening and give my face a bit of a clean in the morning and it's perfect for both.
To use it you just apply it dry onto a face of makeup (TIP: Make sure you put you hair out of your face before you do this! I forgot a few nights ago so I got it all in my hair! It made my hair all sticky and horrible so I had to wash it again the next morning!). The best thing about this cleanser is that it removes all types of makeup, so put it all over your skin, eyes, lips etc. You have two different ways of removing it: you can either wash it off with a warm flannel, or you can do what I do and remove it with some toner on a cotton pad (I use the Lush Tea Tree Water toner - it's perfect for blemish-prone skin.). This removes the cleanser taking every single bit of your makeup, grease and dirt off with it.
One of the best things about the Ultrabland Cleanser is how good it is for your skin. It doesn't strip your skin of its natural oils, which so many cleansing products do. If (like me) you suffer from blemish prone skin this cleanser contains Rose Water and Honey which are super good for helping clear the skin. The honey is an antiseptic and helps to soothe the skin, and the rose water helps to reduce redness. I've found in the month or so that I've used the product my skin has cleared up hugely. 
If you have blemish prone skin I would recommend putting away all your other skincare products (including things like face masks) for about two weeks - maybe longer - and just work with this cleanser and one of the amazing lush toners to remove it. One of the members of staff in my local lush had recommended doing this to me and it has helped my skin so much. As I wasn't putting anywhere near as much things onto my face, my skin was so much cleaner and it really helped. I even stopped using a moisturiser (although if you still want to moisturise i'd recommend using one of the lush moisturisers) and I actually didn't notice because the cleanser does such a fab job of retaining moisture. I've been finding it so amazing that i've actually decided to stick with the routine of just using this product and a toner (possibly with a bit of moisturiser if my skin's feeling dry), with a few occasional face masks here and there.

The Ultrabland Cleanser is priced at £6.95 for 45g or £10.95 for 100g. This may seem like a large amount of money compared to the likes of Simple and Clean&Clear but I've been using the 45g pot for a month and I still haven't finished it. In the long run this product works out as cheaper.
I'd recommend this product to you if you suffer from blemish/spot prone skin or if you just fancy giving your skin a bit of a break from using lots of skin care products. If you give it a try, let me know what you think!
Overall I would rate this product 5*
Have you tried this product/a similar product? What did you think?

  1. This sounds really good I really like the fact it doesn't get rid of natural oils and helps clear blemishes, may just have to pick this up!

    Great Review :)
