Finding a good cleanser can be very difficult, especially if your skin type tends to change depending on the season, time of the month etc. On the whole my skin is combination dehydrated, but some days it can be a complete oil slick and other days it can be dry and uncomfortable. It has taken me a long time to find a cleanser that works well no matter what my skin is like, but finally I have found one. It has even been given holy grail status – now that is saying something!
I first discovered Lush Let The Good Times Roll when I was given a sample in store over two years ago. I wasn’t sure if I would like a cleanser that you need to make into a paste prior to applying it to your face but I thought I would give it a go anyway. Well, let me tell you, it was love at first use. This cleanser smells incredible, like a combination of popcorn and corn bread. This is due to inclusion of maize flour, corn oil, polenta and even popcorn in the ingredients.
The only way I can describe the texture is a little bit like gritty play dough. Please do not let that bad description put you of though. Once you add water to the cleanser and rub it between your hands it forms a paste that you can then massage on to your face. The scrubby bits do a great job at removing any dry skin or left over makeup from my first cleanse. Once I wash it off with a warm flannel my skin is left feeling deeply cleanse but not stripped. It almost feels like I have applied a light moisturising serum when I have dried my face – no uncomfortable dry skin here.
I use around a 10 pence size ball to cleanse my whole face and I find that this is just enough to give my skin good scrub. This product is gentle enough to be used everyday either in the morning or at night. It does not break me out and I think it even helps my skin stay clear and glowing. I believe this cleanser would be suitable for any skin type and recommend you picking up a sample next time you are in Lush, I promise you won’t regret it.
Let The Good Times Roll is available from Lush.co.uk at £6.40 for 100g.
