Nourish are a brand that are using cutting edge ingredients and are releasing some really interesting formulas. It is also a brand that I think are very consistent in the quality of the products they produce, especially when you consider value for money, I feel they are very good indeed. When I first heard about this cleanser, released a few months ago I was intrigued and very excited to test it out.
Nourish 3D Cleanse – (£25 for 100 ml) Is a facial wash that targets pollution and is suitable for all skin types. Nourish say “Colour changing facial wash to lift impurities and reveal healthy, radiant skin”. The texture of this cleanser is very unique, the best way I can think to describe it is as a slightly foamy cream, it is quite thick so works best on damp skin. I personally don’t think this works well for make up removal, the brand has an oil cleanser that I think would be more suited to that task so I have been using it as a second cleanse or morning cleanser.
This is a thorough deep cleanse, I would agree that all but the driest of skins could use it. I found it perfect for after a day out and about, if I lived in a big city like London it would almost certainly be a regular in my routine. I also found it perfect for post exercise or if I am running around getting hot and sweaty with the kids, because the texture really feels like it cleans the skin properly. Skin is left soft and feeling fresh.
The cleanser starts out as a light shimmery grey/white colour and as you start to massage in to the skin it becomes a bright green colour. Although it is quite a fun aspect of this cleanser, there is actually a reason behind the change in colour, Nourish say this indicates that the cleanse has occurred. I continue to massage for a few minutes after the cleanser has changed, because personally although I love the idea, I feel that it changes it quickly and I prefer to massage a little longer to get best results.
Nourish products are all vegan and this product is also certified cruelty free by the Leaping bunny. Some of the products in the range are certified by the Soil Association, but this particular one isn’t, I assume this is because organic certification can restrict significantly the ingredients used and this cleanser is a science led product; although worth pointing out that I couldn’t find anything to grumble about when I checked the INCI list.
You only need one pump of this cleanser per use and the bottle will last for several months, depending how often you use it. Personally I like to keep it for when my skin really needs a deep clean as it prepares the skin perfectly for treatments too. I really like that Nourish are innovating with their products, there isn’t anything else like this on the market and it works incredibly well. It is a great brand to try if you are after cruelty free and vegan products too. Nourish is widely available online and can be found at Content Beauty who ship Internationally.
