Review of a luxury in a jar: EVE LOM Cleanser

Hi my loves!

Today’s post will be about an item that I have received in a LookFantastic beauty box for September (unboxing), the Eve Lom cleanser. This is a skincare product that had been on my wish list for so long, but as it is a bit pricey, I never actually purchased it. I was really surprised and happy when I saw that the generous sample of 20 ml came in the beauty box.

DESCRIPTION AND CLAIMS

This face cleanser is known as being described (by the Vouge) as one of the world’s best cleansers.

Benefits of EVE LOM Cleanser:
– Deep cleanses without drying or stripping the skin and removes even the most stubborn of waterproof make-up.
– Thorough cleansing and gentle exfoliation enables skin cells to regenerate quickly and provides a vital receptive base for beauty products to work at their best.
– Decongests and with the signature massage technique helps drain toxins.
– Exfoliates, tones, improves circulation when combined with the specially woven Muslin Cloth.
– Softens and conditions the skin.
– Visible benefits for all skin types.

 

Massage a small amount of EVE LOM Cleanser onto the face and neck onto dry skin over the grime and make-up from the day. Fill the basin with hot water and immerse the Muslin Cloth. Squeeze off excess water and hold the cloth over the face and neck for a few seconds while taking a deep breath. The heat will soften the skin and open the pores allowing the aromatic oils to cleanse the skin of impurities. For optimum results repeat this stage three times.

Fold the hot, rinsed cloth into a square and work it in small circular movements across the face and neck to remove all traces of Cleanser and make-up. The Muslin Cloth will gently exfoliate the skin surface and encourage healthy blood circulation, leave the skin feeling exceptionally smooth. Finally rinse the cloth in cool water and hold over the face and neck. This helps close the pores, giving the skin a more even, toned appearance. It also leaves the skin feeling fresh and ultra clean.

PACKAGING

This cleanser comes in a white plastic jar with elegant, gold lettering. Also, you receive a muslin cloth that is made of 100% cotton and is to be used with the Cleanser to improve skin circulation while cleansing and exfoliating the skin in minutes.

TEXTURE AND SCENT

Some people describe it as a fresh medically scent, but I think that it has the most amazing smell, that reminds me of a meadow. It relaxes me and it somehow stays on my skin even after I wash my face off. I love it.

When it comes to the texture, it looks like a semolina pudding. It is not smooth, but a bit grainy and its color is goldish-yellow.

INGREDIENTS

The product has a unique blend of essential oils: clove oil to target blemishes and encourage clear skin, eucalyptus oil to combat toxins, hops oil to tone the skin, Egyptian chamomile oil to soften and sooth, and cocoa butter to condition and nourish.

It is also formulated without sulfates and phthalates.

Full list of ingredients: Paraffinum Liquidum (Mineral Oil), Peg-30 Lanolin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Aluminum Stearate, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Peg-75 Lanolin, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Oil, Eugenia Caryophyllus (Clove) Leaf Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Cone Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Eugenol, Limonene.

MY THOUGHTS

I adore this product. I have almost less than the half of jar left, and that makes me wonder…will I splurge 66 EUR (LookFantastic.com) or 80 USD (Sephora.com) for a face cleanser? Because, let me tell you, I am in love. This cleanses my face in the most gentle way, but it gets rid of everything! Also, because it exfoliates the skin, you’re left with soft, conditioned skin.

Another thing is that it smells beautifully, like a day in a spa. And who doesn’t love a day at the spa?

Have you guys tried out this cleanser? Have you tried out any other Eve Lom product? What is your favorite splurge item? I cannot wait to read in the comments below.

Until my next post…

Love,

Marina

    I tried this one too but I only use it once and don’t repeat the process, I don’t have much time to do it three times. I wish great products weren’t that expensive, I really love the scent of it and how effective it is!! xx

      It is a bit time consuming, but I have also used it as an oily cleanser, and it worked amazing.

    I like that you detailed just about everything we may need to know about the product as the consumer. I like that’s it has so many essential oils in it. It sounds like a great cleanser. This was a great review.

    Very nice review. I have never tried this one though. I have my own cleanser which I love and it’s really hard to change it for something different.
