LUSH Ultrabland Cleanser


I have almost finished this tub so I thought it was about time I write my review. Anytime I’ve mentioned cleansing balms I’ve had several people tell me I MUST try LUSH Ultrabland so I was expecting bug things when I finally picked it up. As the name suggests it’s suitable for all skintypes and there are no bold claims of it doing anything special, it’s just a good product to get your skin really clean without any irritation. Now my skin is used to a bit of something extra so I wasn’t sure whether this would be TOO bland but it did the job of removing even the toughest eye makeup and left my skin feeling soft. It has a slight grainy texture to it but often natural balms do and once it heats up on your skin it melts away to nothing, not exfoliation here. It’s thick but doesn’t leave much in the way of a residue which is definitely something I look to avoid as I have spot prone skin and oily layers can spell monster breakouts for me. There’s no discernible scent to this product, again in the interest of it working for all skin types, there’s nothing to irritate sensitive skins by way of fragrance.

Overall it’s a good product, you don’t need much of it but using once a day I think it would last me about a month and at £6.95 – link –  it’s too basic for me to justify repurchasing regularly. I may buy it again in the future but if you’re looking for a basic cleanser I’d recommend the Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleanser which is just £4.99 – link – and considerably larger.

    I love Lush and I’ve bought this cleanser about 3 times over the past 5 years. I never seem to get on with it though and it gets relegated to the back of the cupboard. May have to dig it out again even if it’s just in the interests of using up!

    I had pretty much the same reaction – I wasn’t so impressed that it’s worth a repurchase, and I did feel like it was leaving residue on my skin. Felt gunky.

    I go through phases of usimg this… I just don’t love it. Like you said, it’s fine, it does the job, but it’s not special and as I live in Ireland the price is even higher and harder to justify.

    I must source a good cleansing balm though, no Superdrug near me 🙁

    I have super sensitive and dry skin on my face and this cleaner has worked miracles for me! Definitely worth a purchase if you have issues.

    I love Lush Ultrabland! I could rave about it for ages. I guess it depends on exactly what your skin needs, but for me it’s worked wonders. And I find that a little goes a long way, so for me it’ll last a couple of months 🙂 I’ve written a review on my blog.

    I’ve used this and really liked it too, it did a great job at removing my makeup, but didn’t dry out my skin. I’ve moved onto the Clinique Take the Day Off now and I’m hoping the pot will last a lot longer than the Ultrabland.

    Ughh, I’m on the hunt for the perfect natural cleanser – And I thought this could be it but now not so sure. What other natural cleansers can you recommend?

      Have you tried just using coconut oil?
