First up, the beautifully simple Aromatherapy Associates packaging, it’s a pump bottle which is something I do like in a cleanser as it’s much easier to manage with wet hands etc.
The product itself is a cream consistency, or a lotion, you apply over your face and neck and then rinse off with warm water.
Ingredients wise, there’s Damask rose water, geranium oil (which helps balance the skin’s natural oils and jojoba.
I started off using this with my Clarisonic, it smells divine and it certainly left my skin clean, but I decided it wasn’t quite right for use with the Clarisonic but I didn’t want to stop using it so now I use this to cleanse my face first and remove my make up before using another cleanser with my Clarisonic afterwards.
Using this alone (and without following up with the Clarisonic) this leaves my skin soft, clean feeling and lightly rose-scented. I’ve also noticed that my skin seems quite happy with this new regime so I can’t see me dropping this one any time soon. It’s also, unusually for Aromatherapy Associates, not too costly, at £22 for 200ml this isn’t outrageously priced, although obviously more than your average Boots/Superdrug cleansers.
I must admit, that I’m still really on the hunt for a whole range that will suit my skin, including something to use with my Clarisonic, but I think this cleanser makes a great foundation for me to start with.
