LUSH 9 to 5 Cleansing Lotion is a concept that I hadn’t really ever tried before. As the name says, it’s a cleansing lotion. You don’t wash it off with water as you would a regular facial wash.
It’s billed as a gentle cleanser and it contains almond oil and dove orchids to remove makeup, dirt and grime, and keep skin soft.
It has a very light “lotion-y” scent. I don’t really get any almond oil, but it’s not a bad smell at all. But it didn’t really work for me.
I’m one of those people who likes to feel a REALLY clean face when I wash off my makeup at night. Like almost squeaky clean, but I don’t go that far because I know it’s not good for skin.
With this product I felt like I was smearing lotion on my face and the wiping away with cotton pads didn’t make me feel clean at all. It made my face feel a bit sticky and just not refreshed like warm water and a face cloth does.
It did take off the non-waterproof makeup I was wearing with a little bit of scrubbing (not too much).
Overall: It works but it’s just not for me. I didn’t feel clean enough after using it and I just wanted to wash my face again. Those who don’t mind the lotion “remnants” or don’t feel the need to scrub their face into oblivion like me might like it. 😉
Pricing: $10.95 for 3.4 oz.
Ever tried this or anything like it? Do you like a super clean face at nigh like me?
