I have hypersensitive, dry, red, eczema prone skin, this is the best cleanser I have ever used because it does not irritate or dry out my skin, it removes make up gently but effectively, I massage over my face then wipe off with a damp face cloth. I also remove my eye make up I massage it into my lids and lashes to break down the make up then wipe away with damp cotton wool the lines around my eyes have softened because this is moisturising, also my cheeks are less red after using this for a few weeks I now bulk buy so I never run out, wish they did a larger size.
The product is gentle on the skin, but sadly I find the smell so off-putting I'm not sure I'll get through the whole bottle. It doesn't linger after I rinse it off, but washing my face with something that smells like it's gone off does little to lift my mood in the mornings :)
This is excellent!!! At 33 I have generally clear combination skin but skin that can react really easily to products, especially when hormonal. I massage into dry skin and it feels so nourishing and hydrating then rinse with warm water...and a few times a week I use the Neal's yard orange face scrub as am prone to black heads on my nose. As a new mum I was starting to feel pretty haggard (I haven't had more than 2hrs sleep in a row for 18 months argh!). Previously I'd always looked after my skin and rested well but even then all cleansers had a shelf life with me and it was only a matter of time before they'd aggrivate my hormonal spots (hot cloth cleansers particularly) on my chin or just feel like they stopped working entirely. I'm on my third bottle of this and still loving it. Its understated, doesn't smell much and does a great job!
Such a relief to find the soothing starflower range, which has not only reduced the sensitivity and redness in my skin, but has made it so much softer and clearer and less blotchy. When your skin is sensitive but not dry, its almost impossible to find a suitable cleanser/moisturiser. Most companies seem to equate sensitivity with dryness, but sensitive skin can fall into any category and mine has always been on the oilier side. Products loaded with shea butter and/or coconut oil are just too rich and cause breakouts. I was delighted to find this range which is free of fragrance (which seems to be the cause of my redness and discomfort) but which is free of these pore-clogging ingredients. Thanks Neal's Yard, please don't stop making this, its a godsend for sensitive skins not catered for elsewhere.
You're not going to get a deep cleanse from this, let's start there. So if you're used to the popular cream cleansers, don't expect the same effect. I love this though. I use it to remove my makeup with a soft flannel and warm water, and it takes it all off without irritating my skin. The smell isn't very appealing, but hey ho, I'll take it for non-irritated skin. I have eczema and large pores, so usually follow this with a deeper cleanse on an evening, but on a morning it's good alone as you can moisturise and put makeup on without waiting for any pinkness or redness to subside.
To anyone with sensitive reactive skin, try this Soothing Starflower Cleanser! I have used it on clients who react to various things on their skin and it neutralizes burning and swelling skin reactions immediately! It's amazing. The borage smell is a little "fatty" for my liking, but it fades quickly.
I had been looking for a suitable cleanser for my reactive, roseaic skin for ages, spending a fortune in the process, and was currently using a chemical laden range. What a joy to find this cleanser - it feels rich, soothing and pampering to my intolerant skin. Luxurious texture but does the job and removes all traces of grime and my mineral make-up. Best of all - no nasty ingredients. I am SO pleased with this product
At last, something that does everything (no need for make up remover or toner) ! Personally I use this on damp skin and wash off with a warm clean flannel. Then just splash your face with cold water to finish. It is beautiful and soothing and non-drying. Thank you Neals Yard.
