Review: GREENPEOPLE Gentle Cleanse Make Up Remover & Cleanser.

GREENPEOPLE Gentle Cleanse Make Up Remover & Cleanser £16.95, 200ml. Made with 93.77% organically grown ingredients.

I've been really interested in skincare ingredients for the last year or so, I've tried to educate myself a bit on what the mumbo jumbo on the back of packaging really means and as a result, I try to go organic wherever possible. I was sent Gentle Cleanse to try so I'll list what GreenPeople products dont contain rather than what they do.

Naturally made without: Parabens, lanolin, alcohol (ethanol, ethyl, alcohol), sodium lauryl/laureth sulphate, PEG's, phythalates, propylene glycol, petrochemicals, colourants, DEA, TEA, PABA sunscreen or any other harsh additives.

Gentle Cleanse is suitable for vegans and vegetarians, fairly traded, never tested on animals and the winner of Natural Health magazine beauty awards 2011. I received the 50ml size which comes in a simple pump dispenser. I really love products with pumps, its more hygenic, stops the product drying out and stops me being heavy handed and squeezing double the amount out.

The texture is a light cream and suitable for all skin-types. 'Formulated to balance, nourish and moisturise. Anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties. Rich, sensual aroma from pure plant sources. Suitable for areas of sensitive skin and safely removes eye make-up (including waterproof mascara)'
The scent reminds me of the Figs & Rouge Geranium Balm from Decembers FeelUnique Beauty Box but nowhere near as strong, thankfully.

Directions: Apply in small circular movements. Remove with either tissue, cotton wool or remove with lukewarm water and then a splash of cold. (I use a muslin cloth or flannel mitt). Because the cream is light, its easy to remove and doesnt leave a film over the skin like some cleansers can. Removes makeup quickly and easily and didnt break me out at all.
Greenpeople do a whole range of different products including an unscented line which I'm tempted to try. If anyone has tried any other products from this brand I'd love to know what you think and what you would recommend.

I should mention that at the mo theres a 25% off everything sale and free delivery untill the end of the month.
