On Sunday I brought you the beautiful nspa candle, today I will be talking about their ‘Melting’ Cleansing Gel. I bought this because I’d run out of all other cleansers on my bath side (possibly a first for this beauty blogger) and I had no strong loyalty to one so decided to try something new. I was looking for something that would foam (so that I could use it with my Clarisonic) , remove my eye makeup and smell good, this does maybe 1 and a half out of 3. It was sitting by the nspa hot cloth cleanser but £2 cheaper so obviously I decided this was the one I wanted (tight), I kind of assumed it would be a gel version but it’s really unlike anything else I’ve tried.
Unfortunately it’s tough to photograph on my own as by the time I’ve cleaned one hand to use the camera it’s not quite ‘doing’ it but basically you apply this to dry skin (look as below) and when you add water it transforms. There’s no foam or really any soapy feeling at all but it does turn into a milky substance with which you then cleanse and wash off. It doesn’t emulsify enough to use my facial brush so that was disappointing and although it does remove all of my makeup it’s obviously not formulated for use on eyes as even my uber-non-sensetive ones do feel a little uncomfortable afterwards but my irks with this product come down to what I’m looking for in a cleanser vs how this is designed to be used. If you remove your makeup pre-face wash time and you’re happy to use a muslin cloth to do your exfoliating (which I have been doing since I bought it) then this is a very interesting little gel which smells delicious and I’d definitely recommend you try. If you prefer that soapy/foamy feeling this is probably not for you, I will use it up before I move on to the next (any recommendations, please leave a comment) but it’s not my favourite purely because I like my cleanser to do it all where as this is 1 step of several.
If you’ve tried anything from the nspa range I’d love to hear what you thought as the fragrance really makes me want to try more!
