I was swayed by the review here comparing this to Eve Lom cleanser, which I used to love in the days when I had more disposal income, so I bought it in store as a rare treat. What a waste of money. The tester smelled OK on my hand but when I tried it on my face it was horrible, really oily smelling - like garage oil, and the patchouli smell is very strong and unpleasant. I hadn't thought to check the ingredients list for this as it was labelled wild rose - I can't stand patchouli and you can really smell it when it's all over your face! The wild rose gets completely overpowered. My other complaint is the fact that you have to use another cleanser first to remove most of your make-up before you even start with this. Having checked the website I see now it does state that, but in the shop the assistant didn't mention that, and with the words Eve Lom going round in my head I bought this assuming it would be a one product does all. But no. You also can't use this around the eyes, a fact I have discovered to my cost - so yet another product would be needed for that. This is not what I was expecting and I wish I could have a refund, but having opened and tried it I suspect that wouldn't be allowed. Buyer beware!!
