Advantages: Good for sensitive skin, smells nice, feels lovely
Well if you are love the feel of water on your skin then this is the product for you!
There are facial cleansers and facial washes and there is soap. Please never, never, never use soap on your face. It doesn't matter if it says 'kind to skin' on it or not the truth is soap dries out your skin and dry skin = early wrinkles (sorry to be so harsh). Now if you are a big make up wearer then this product will not be much use to take off your heavy make up, however, if you need a wash to use in the morning to wake you up or on the days when you are wearing a light make up, then this will be a great product for you.
This wash comes in a clear, plastic container. On the front is the name of the product, the brand name and the amount of product in the bottle. On the back is a brief description of how to use it (for all those who have forgotten how to wash your face ;-0 ) an ingredients listing and a picture of a lotus flower, which is Molton Brown's logo. As the bottle is very plain it is very unisex.
Most bottles come with a pump dispenser which is excellent for keeping the product fresh (Molton Brown use hardly any preservatives) and also makes it much more economical to use.
The main bottle size that you can buy off of the shelf in your store is 200ml. You can get 100ml travel size bottles in some sets and if you buy this product from QVC you will be able to buy a 300ml bottle. If you ask the lady on the counter at your local Molton Brown stockist very nicely she may have some 30ml trial size bottles she can let you have. This is really good if you haven't used this before as 30ml will last a couple of weeks so you really get a feel for the product and if it is right for you.
~~~The star of the show - the product~~~
The product itself is a beige sort of colour, nearly translucent......mmmm the colour is a bit tricky
to describe as it isn't really a colour if you see what I mean lol. It is a gel so it feels really lovely on the skin. The smell is of pineapple with a touch of lime, it is lovely and fresh to use in the summer when you are hot and sticky.
Molton Brown say that this product will not irritate sensitive skin as they use low level preservatives. I do suffer with sensitive skin so I can vouch for this.
I use about 2 pumps to clean my skin, if you are wearing a light make up then I would suggest 3 pumps.
Dampen face, rub product between your hands, apply to face, mmmmmmm take in the beautiful smells, ooooooo enjoy the silkiness of the product on face, rinse!
As simple as that.
Your face will feel clean, fresh, moist (in a nice way), and not at all tight. Molton Brown would suggest using there toner after then there moisturiser, personally I don't think that you need the toner as the water will do a similar job.
Purified water, disodium cocoamphodiacetate, sodium lauryl sulphate, hexylene glycol, panthenol, carbomer, extract of pineapple, extract of lime, triethanolamine, propylene, glycol, methylapraben, propylparaben, tetrasodium EDTA.

200ml bottle from Molton Brown web site is £16.00
300ml bottle from QVC is £19.00
From my experience this is a great product for all members of the family. It may b
e a little expensive but as it has the pump dispenser it is very economical to use, 300ml lasts me and my husband about 3months.
The best thing of all is that it doesen't cause premature ageing as it is so gentle.
If you still aren't sure go to your Molton Brown stockist and ask for a trial size.....you will be hooked!
