Brr, I swear it’s getting colder! Going from shop to shop (don’t cha just love Christmas shopping?), my skin is constantly exposed to hot-cold-hot-cold and it’s not happy about it. However, to get back into it’s good books I have been treating it to the nSpa Hot Cloth Polish during cleansing time.
Rich in cocoa butter, this thick and creamy cleanser is so gentle on my skin; no stripping it of the precious moisture it has left (my precioussss) (come on, admit it that you totes read that sentence in that voice..). I was a little wary of breakouts due to the almond oil, ginseng and neroli present but I am pleased to say there haven’t been any! My skin practically drinks up this cleanser and my skin looks brighter and feels clean after use. I do have to be a bit mean here and dash the hopes of oily skinned ladies – due to the amount of cocoa butter present this may be a little heavy for your delicate faces. Dry and dehydrated ladies… help yourselves!
A little bugbear I have with this is the pump mechanism. I press down on the pump to dispense the product, which it does, but I then have to wait for the pump to push itself back up slowly if I want another pump, if that makes sense. As time has gone on, the pump has weakened and it can stick a little or take a bit longer to push itself back up. It’s just a minor bug bear and it is probably down to my heavy handed-ness more than anything.
I would also say some of the ingredients make me raise my eyebrow slightly… I have hyperlinked the one that made me gasp!
Despite these bugbears this would be something I would consider buying myself. The nSpa range is exclusive to ASDA so you can pop a cheeky treat into the trolley when your mum isn’t looking… (dannie tip – distract her with something from the George section).
