I like a cleanser that does everything. I'm not one for removing my makeup with one thing, my eye makeup with another, cleansing my face with another, and going in for another cleanse with something else. It's one of the reasons why I love Ultrabland so much, and one of the reasons why I've never paid any attention to Lush's fresh cleansers before. However, I wanted to try some new products from them, and Let The Good Times Roll had very high ratings, so I went ahead and purchased a 100g pot for £6.95.
This face and body cleanser is a gentle treat for the skin, leaving you soft to the touch with a buttery popcorn fragrance. Maize flour and polenta gently exfoliate, whilst cinnamon powder stimulates and leaves you feeling fresh and revived, with beautifully soft skin. This gentle yet scrubby cleanser will soothe and soften your skin, giving it a natural glow.
To use this, you break a small amount off and mix it with a little water to form a paste. The more water you add, the gentler it will be, so you can tailor it to your needs. I used to think the harsher an exfoliator was, the better it would be, but I've since found that small grains can be just as effective, if not more so. They have a polishing effect on the skin, just like this product, leaving your skin looking smooth and bright. It also has the most delicious scent of popcorn/caramel, which lingers on your skin throughout the day/night, depending on when you use it.
It won't be taking the place of a cleanser in my routine, but as a gentle, polishing exfoliator a few times a week, it's great. The popcorn pieces, however, are pretty pointless. I think it's to remind us of how natural the ingredients are, and it may even contribute a little to the fragrance, but I'd rather the room be taken up with a little more of the cleanser itself.
Due to its fresh nature, it has a shelf life of three months, but I think this should give you plenty of time if you're using it on a regular basis.
I'll probably repurchase this sweet smelling pot of goodness when I run out. It's not a game changer like my beloved Ultrabland and Ro's Argan, but it's a nice addition to have.
