nspa Melting Cleansing Gel

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!

Available for £4 from Asda stores

    My loyalty lies with dermalogica for my cleanser
    Purely because it cleared my skin up so well after
    Having an allergic e reaction during a op! And post surgery blemish outbreak! The obly downside is the price! i have heard good things about the la roche posay cleanser though! But I love the nspa 5 minute magic mask! Also like to say since before Christmas I have been hooked on your blog!! X

    I’ve heard that the la roche posay cleansers are really good and they are on offer on escentual.co.uk at the moment. I have the nspa magic mask which I really do rate! And I agree with the nspa range smelling lovely! I use the shower creams and body butters from the nspa range too!! X

    Never seen that before, I tend to use 9 to 5 by Lush, but may give this a go when I’ve finished it all up.

    I can heartily recommend the nspa Hot Cloth Cleanser. It’s lovely and thick and smells lovely (I’m not sure if it’s the same scent). I think comparable to Liz Earle but much cheaper.
