Lush Let The Good Times Roll Facial Cleanser
Advantages: Smells lovely, leaves skin soft, supple and clear without irriating my sensitive skin.
Disadvantages: Is quite heavy, leaves a greasy covering on skin unless washed off properly.
I love Lush all year round but I definitely look forward to the festive season as most of my favourite Lush products are Christmas products. Whilst I usually wait until boxing day so I can these items half price this year I just couldn't wait and ended up buying myself a pot of this Let The Good Times Roll Cleanser at full price, 100g for £5.95.
The cleanser comes in the usual black plastic pot which can be saved and used as one of the five empty pots needed to claim a free fresh face mask from the store! The product name is written in white on the lid along with a description that claims this is 'A Maize In, gentle facial wash.' On the pot is a sticker of the person who made my particular pot of product, when it was made and when it should be used by and this product has a life of three months.
The cleanser contains a typical Lush ingredients list in that it sounds as though you should eat the product rather than apply it to your skin! This one has popped corn oil, polenta, maize flour and cinnamon. The scent of the cleanser reflects the ingredients contained too as it has a beautiful sweet caramel and popcorn scent to it. This is a rather unusual scent for a face care product I know but I find it extremely appealing all the same.
You may be a little surprised by what is inside too! The cleanser has a cookie dough consistency and is just one big lump of pale brown putty. To use the cleanser I pinch off a pea sized ball and mix with a couple of drops of water in the palm of my hand. This creates a creamy white paste and smells divine! Then I just need to rub it on my face and rinse off again, I usually apply this in the bath as I just find it easier to do this way.
The cleanser is a gentle one and hasn't caused any sort of reaction to my very sensitive skin. This is the only face wash which exfoliates that I have ever been able to successfully use as the all the others I have tried just make my face burn so it's nice that I have found something which allows me to exfoliate my face without causing a reaction (I've been looking for something to do just that for ages now).
Although this rinses off really easily I do find it leaves quite greasy traces on my face afterwards and I do normally apply a little Simple face wash afterwards just to get rid of this feeling. Whilst this doesn't do my dry sensitive skin any harm I could imagine this wouldn't go down very well with people with oily skin and I'd probably recommend those people stay away from this one.
Once washed off I suddenly get little bursts of that popcorn scent throughout the day so the scent does last a while! My skin is left feeling so soft I often don't feel the need to moisturise either! This stuff works absolute miracles for spots too. In fact I'm really surprised Lush are not using that as their main selling point for this one because it just clears them up so well! I went through my teenage years getting the odd one or two every other month or so but now I've hit twenty and come out of my adolescence I just seem to be covered in spots all the time. The first time I applied this I woke up the next morning to find all spots had reduced in size by at least 50% and not a single one had any redness left to it at all. With continuous use it just clears them all right up - it's brilliant for spot prone skin.
I do find it is a little too heavy to use every day and I tend to apply this once a week instead although at least this does make it last longer. Despite the heaviness it does a really good job at exfoliating, leaves skin really soft, is safe for sensitive skin and helps loads at clearing spots up. I do really like this one and I don't think you can moan at the price of it at all considering the results it gives!
Summary: A nice cleanser to clear up spots and leave skin soft and lovely looking!
