How much is it? /Size/Approximate cost per usage?

£29.95/$32.00 for 118ml.

What’s good about it?

A lovely cleanser that does what it says on the box. This is about the closest I get to a foaming cleanser. If you're looking for something to wean you off your traditional 'foam' products, this is one to consider. Much more gentle, but still efficacious. Although they say this will remove makeup, this is an obvious morning or second PM cleanser for me. I wouldn't waste it using it to remove makeup. Smells lovely and fresh, leaves skin soft and comfortable.

What’s not so good about it?

Nothing really. Good size, gorgeous packaging and excellent contents in the bottle itself. I wouldn't use daily if you were really dry, you'd be better off with the Rosehip Cleanser IMO.

Works well with?

The CoQ10 Toner in the range is really lovely and I do use it in place of acids on occasion, usually when I'm using the cleanser. Although you obviously don't have to :)

What’s the website like?

Nice. Basic, clean and fresh with just enough information and no 'faff'. And full ingredient listings.

Would I purchase/repurchase?

Absolutely. I bought this along with most of the range from and would repurchase.
