The Body Shop's Nutriganics Softening Cleansing Gel Oil

Body Shop Nutriganics Softening Cleansing Gel OilI recently decided to go back and re-try some brands that I feel I've overlooked in the past couple of years - one of them was Lush (see my review of their Big Shampoo here) and one of them was The Body Shop. I used to love their products then rather fell out of love with them 7ish years ago for no particular reason (possibly because my skin became too dry for their Vitamin E cream) and I haven't been back since (except for their face roller). I decided to try three of their skincare products and the first choice was the Nutriganics Softening Cleansing Gel Oil. As regular readers (slash anyone I know) knows I am obsessed with the Emma Hardie Amazing Face Cleansing Balm and thought it worth seeing if there was a more affordable alternative. I think this is the closest you'll get. Just throwing that out there.

Easy to use packaging makes this incredibly quick and easy to use - squirt the cleanser into your hand and put it straight onto your face. I will be cutting this open to get the last bits out though - the downside to this kind of bottle, but a small one. I apply it straight to my dry make-uped face and neck, including rubbing it into the eye area to get my mascara off, then I remove it with a warm microfiber flannel. If you take the time to work it into the skin this really does get all your make-up off, impressive for something in the £10 and under price bracket. 

My skin can be sensitive in patches and there has been no sensitivity when using this (I've been using it most days for over a month). My skin feels clean, soft and smooth. Which is what I want from a cleanser. I've recently been thinking of products that I automatically re-buy without thinking about it and this falls into that category. If you have normal to dry skin and want a cleanser that is fine for daily use then please give this ago. I am so happy I tried it. It's not going to replace my more high-end cleansers but it's definitely going to be in regular use from now on.
