By Nature Brightening Gel Cleanser with Vitamin C and Turmeric is an ‘energizing’ facial cleanser that promises to help keep skin bright, clean and fresh, while gently washing away dirt, make-up and impurities.
Infused with antioxidant rich Vitamin C and radiance enhancing turmeric extract, the tube says it will hydrate and boost skin’s radiance for glowing, softer skin every day. It is paraben free, contains no nasty chemicals and is not tested on animals.
To use this gel cleanser the tube says to apply to a damp face and massage gently into the skin, avoiding the eye and lip area. Rinse well and pat dry. Using morning and night for clean, fresh skin. Warning: Patch test prior to use and discontinue use if irritation occurs.
The large 225g white plastic squeeze tube has a flip top lid, which I found to be the wrong packaging for this product. The gel cleanser has a really watery consistency and it literally just flows out of the tube as soon as the lid is opened. I feel that this cleanser needs to be packaged in a bottle with a pump, as I ended up having to decant the entire tube into an empty pump bottle that I had kept from a previous product, to prevent waste, as there’s no way to control how much product comes out of the squeeze tube.
The yellow liquid gel has a fresh citrus and turmeric scent, and I find that the cleanser works better if I work it up to a lather in my hands before applying it to my face. Sadly, this cleanser did not work as well as I hoped it would. It cannot be used to remove make-up; it’s useless at removing non-waterproof mascara and basic pencil eyeliner, something that most cleansers remove with ease.
Unfortunately, the very liquid consistency (of this gel), the fact that it doesn’t cleanse very well compared to other cleansers I’ve used, and the totally wrong packaging (so hard to control how much product comes out, very wasteful), doesn’t make me want to purchase another another tube.
I really do enjoy using the rest of By Nature’s Vitamin C & Turmeric range; it works wonders on my oily skin, and their face mist, serum and night cream are all awesome products. Somehow this cleanser just totally misses the mark for me, I don’t feel it’s nearly as good as the rest of their Vitamin C & Turmeric range.
