Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser
Here’s something I’ve been trying out lately while going through my beauty and skincare stash: Nourish Organic Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion from my ipsy September 2014 Glam Bag. It was the perfect size to try this out for a week or two to see if I need to nab this for the winter season.
What I love about this product? It cleans pretty good as expected from a facial cleanser. It removes all the oil from my face at the end of the day, which is unexpected based on how the formula feels. The formula is light and more viscous than most I’ve tried. It is also creamy white in color. It provided good cleansing power for the few bubbles I get. Remember, bubbles doesn’t automatically mean clean. That’s something I’ve learned from years of soapmaking. It does give you the illusion that it cleans because of how we’re all brought up and led to believe that. I was actually surprised that there are some bubbles at all since it’s a cream cleanser. The product packaging is pretty and clean — quite simple too.
What I don’t like about this product? The scent. Compared to the Nourish Organic Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion, this smells worse in my opinion. I was really expecting to be around the same scent as the face lotion or scentless even, but this actually has a scent to it that I don’t find pleasant at all. It’s a scent that I associate with organic and natural immediately (although not all organic and natural beauty items smell like that or the same even) or something very similar to it. It definitely does not make me think it came from Bath & Body Works or other similar brands. Scent is something very personal and we each have our own preferences, so I wouldn’t just discount trying it out based on my take on the scent if I were you.
This item is available on their online store here as well as at various retailers such as Whole Foods, Target, Sprouts, and Vitamin Shoppe.
