Human and kind All in one wash off cleanser review


 
I do love a creamy cleanser and today's offering is from the brightly packaged brand Human and Kind, there is no doubt in my mind that the simple formulas and fun styling of this brand will appeal to many and I myself couldn't help but be drawn in. The brand designs it's formulas to be multi-tasking and keeps the amount of products in it's range to a minimum so you can design a simple and fuss free regime, even as a skincare junkie I can appreciate the paired down ethos, The brand uses natural or naturally derived ingredients and is mineral oil and paraben free and not tested on animals.

As cleansing is the cornerstone of any regime it seemed fitting that I put the Wash off facial cleanser* (£14.95 for 100 mls) to the test, I found this to be very reminiscent of the Liz Earle cleanse and polish formula so if you are a fan I think you will enjoy this. It is very thick and rich but rinses off cleanly, it comes with a lovely soft cloth, much nicer than the average muslin and it allows you remove all of the cleanser easily. It has some great ingredients such as cocoa butter, aloe vera and rosehip but be aware that the exact fragrance blend is not disclosed so this could be an issue for some even if it does come from natural sources. Although not listed I could definitely pick up that this has mint as you can feel the slightly cooling and refreshing sensation on the skin when you remove it. The let down for me about this formula is that I found it to sting when used around the eyes, there may have been some swearing heard in my bathroom as I got a small amount in my eye and for me that is where the whole concept falls down. I am not someone who is unhappy at having to use a separate eye make up remover, which I do with this cleanser or reserve it for the mornings when I have no make up on, however as Human and Kind market themselves as a brand keen to help you simplify your routine and they say this cleanser can be used around the eyes the fact that it didn't live to it's claims was disappointing. Whilst I wouldn't repurchase this product I am curious to test out their BB cream as my beloved REN is near the end of it's life and I still really like the fun nature of the brand despite not loving this product. The squeeze tube is light and practical for travelling and the price fairly affordable but sadly there are plenty of other cream cleansers I like much more than this one. 

Have you tried anything from Human and Kind? What did you think?

  1. Great review Ana! Very fair indeed. I understand what you mean about how harsh minty formulas can sometimes feel - I have found the same with the Tea Tree Creamy Cleanser by The Body Shop. I don't usually wear makeup so something like this would be good for me, but it must be a pain to do a switcheroo of products to remove makeup daily especially when the brand pride themselves on a small range. Thanks for sharing <3

    1. Thanks Rosie, I think if they ditched the fragrance completely or made it much gentler it would be much better but I still think some people will love it just like the Liz Earle and I have seen some very positive reviews, it's just not for me Xx

  3. Ana,
    Tengo este producto y me ha pasado exactamente lo mismo, además tener esa sensación de mentolada sobre la cara no me gusta nada, y menos en invierno, con el frío espantoso que hace (en verano igual y le daría un pase).
    Tampoco me ha gustado nada los ingredientes...vamos que no repito a pesar de tener muy buen precio.
    Un abrazo

  4. The packaging is so cool! Definitely stands out from the crowd. It's a shame that this didn't perform well as an all-in-one cleanser. I won't be trying the cleanser because I'm so in love with Yuli Halcyon, but now you have me intrigued about their BB cream. Would love to hear what you think of it if you decide to try it out. Lovely review Ana
    xoxo

  6. He probado la BB cream de esta marca Human + kind, te cuento mis impresiones, es totalmente mate y muy cubriente para ser una BB cream, iguala mucho el tono de la tez y el único problema q le veo es q es una fórmula un poco seca, es astringente para mi q tengo la piel mixta deshidratada, necesito un plus de hidratación extra cuando me la aplico, en verano aún podría usarla pero ahora en invierno se me queda corta...un poco decepcionante.
