Herbfarmacy Wash-Off Cleansing Mousse

March 24, 2015


Pred kratkim sem vam v tej objavi obljubila oceno Herbfarmacy Wash-Off Cleansing Mousse* in končno sem jo uspela napisati. Herbfarmacy je nagrajena britanska znamka naravne kozmetike iz ekološko pridelanih sestavin. Že po imenu sodeč izdelki temeljijo na zeliščih in rožah, ki jih gojijo na svoji farmi. Čudovit travnik posut s prekrasnim ognjičem in ameriškim slamnikom je prikazan tudi na spodnjih fotografijah. Zgodba o Herbfarmacy se je začela z gojenjem zelišč Paula Richardsa, ki je nato kasneje s svojo ženo Carol in ekipo razvil Herbfarmacy, linijo, ki je primerna tudi za občutljivo kožo. Poleg protivnetnega in zdravilnega ognjiča, v svojih formulacijah zelo radi uporabljajo navadni slez (ang. marshmallow). Roža z belimi do rahlo rožnatimi cvetovi v svojih koreninah vsebuje sluz, ki privlači in zadržuje vlago v koži, obenem pa tudi neverjetno pomirja in je tako odlična sestavina za občutljivo in suho kožo.
Poleg zgoraj omenjenih sestavin, to krasno čistilno sredstvo za obraz med drugim vsebuje vodo, kamilico, olje mareličnih pešk, aloe vero, rožmarin in še kaj. Ena izmed sestavin, ki mi v izdelku ni preveč všeč je phenoxyethanol, konzervans, ki se ga načeloma izogibam. Gre za alergen, ki lahko povzroči alergično reakcijo, kot naprimer srbečico, povezovali pa so ga tudi že z rakom. Za več informacij pa raje malo pobrskajte po spletu, nisem ravno strokovnjakinja, mi je pa veliko ljubše, da sestavine na izdelku prepoznam, kot pa da vidim neko sintetično sestavino, ki jo po vsej verjetnosti še izgovoriti ne znam pravilno. :) A dovolj o tem in pojdimo raje na stvari na katere se spoznam, na mojo izkušnjo tega čistila za obraz.
Že po samem opisu si lahko mislite, da ima izdelek teksturo kremne pene (ali moussa). A ne gre za lahko peno, v smislu, da vsebuje veliko zraka, ampak gre za kremno peno. Morda bi ga pa še bolje opisala kot gosto kremno mleko. Meni ima super konsistenco, mehko in zelo prijetno za uporabo. Izdelek se ne peni in je zelo nežen. Tak pa je tudi sam vonj - nežen, cvetlično-zeliščen vonj. Najraje ga uporabljam za jutranje čiščenje ter kot moj drugi korak pri večernem čiščenju obraza, kot ste že morda prebrale tukaj. Nanesem ga na suh obraz, ga nežno vmasiram, dodam malo vode, da se še lepše razporedi, ter sperem ali pa uporabim mokro brisačko. Lahko pa ga uporabite tudi za odstranitev ličil. Sicer sem ga tako preizkusila le enkrat, a skoraj popolnoma je odstranil tudi naravno maskaro. Z dvojnim nanosom in uporabo mokre brisačke pa bi jo odstranil popolnoma. 

Cleansing Mousse mi je zelo všeč, ker je tako nežen, kože ne izsuši ali razdraži, odstrani vse ostanke ličil, ne peče oči ter je primeren za vse tipe kože. Všeč mi je tudi logo in embalaža na pumpico, edina stvar, ki bi jo spremenila je, da bi se na embalaži videlo koliko izdelka sem že porabila. :)

Glede na vse, Herbfarmacy čistilni mousse priporočam, meni je zelo všeč!<3 Preizkusila sem tudi še nekaj drugih Herbfarmacy izdelkov in moram reči, da gre za krasno znamko in komaj čakam, da vam predstavim še ostale izdelke. :) Na voljo tukaj.

A while ago, when I posted this article, I promised you I'll write a review of the Herbfarmacy Wash-Off Cleansing Mousse* and I finally managed to do it. Herbfarmacy is an award winning British natural and organic skincare. The name of the brand is most fitting, their products are based on wonderful herbs and flowers that they grow on their farm. I love their description - Home grown & packed with freshest ingredients. On the first two photos you can see a bit of their farm with gorgeous Calendula and Echinacea. It was the plant expert Paul Richards who started growing herbs on his farm and together with his wife, Carol and the team, they design and create Herbfarmacy. A brand that's also ideal for sensitive skin. Besides anti-inflammatory and healing Calendula, the herb they love to use in their concotions is Marshmallow. A flower with delicate lilac/pink flowers that stores its amazing soothing properties in the roots. It contains soft mucilages which attract and hold moisture in the skin surface, making marshmallow a valuable herb for dry and sensitive skin.

This lovely cleansing mousse also contains ingredients like Water, Chamomile, Apricot Kernel Oil, Aloe Vera, Rosemary and more. One ingredients that I don't like is Phenoxyethanol, a preservative which I tend to avoid. It can cause an allergic reaction like itchiness, and there're also some studies linking it to cancer. But you should definitely google it to learn more, I'm no expert! :) So let's just rather move on the stuff I know, on my experience with the cleanser.

 As the name suggest, the product has a consistency of a mousse. It is fluffy like a mousse but if the word "mousse" wasn't in the name of the product, I would describe it as a thick, super creamy cleansing milk. I love it, it's so soft and just so nice to use. It doesn't foam, it's super gentle and has a nice herby-floral scent. My fave way of using it is in the mornings and as my second step in my evening routine, which you could have read here. I apply it to my dry skin, gently massage it, add a bit of water to spread it even nicely, and then rinse with lukewarm water or use a warm cotton cloth to remove it. I also tried it for removing my makeup and it even removed my natural mascara! With a second cleanse you can easily remove everything, especially when using washcloth.

I really like the Wash-Off Cleansing Mousse, it's gentle, it doesn't dry out my skin or irritates it, it removes all of my makeup, it doesn't sting my eyes and it's suitable for all skin types. I also like their logo, anything flowers wins me over, and the pump bottle is great too! There's one thing I'd like to change, but that's my constant struggle - I just wish the bottle wasn't white so I could see how much product there's left. :)

All in all, I love this Herbfarmacy cleanser and I recommend it, it's awesome!<3 I've also been testing some other Herbfarmacy products and all I can say is that it's a beautiful brand and I can't wait to show you more of their products. :) Get it here.


Have you tried it? What do you think about it?

Much love,
Jana xx

  2. Dear Jana, this mousse cleanser sounds lovely! I'm currently using the Antipodes Butter Cleanser, which I quite like, to remove all of my make-up. Thanks to your evening routine I now use a washcloth and really enjoy the warmth on my skin (: . Lots of love, Theresa.

    1. Pravzaprav sem že dolgo nazaj napisala članek o teh sestavinah, evo tukaj je http://smallbitsofloveliness.blogspot.com/2013/03/sestavine-v-kozmetiki.html :)

      Tole čistilo bi ti bilo pomoje super, ali pa od Pai, meni sta krasna! :) Kože ne izsušita, obenem pa tudi ne povzročata mozoljev :) Za malo cenejšo varijatno in tako, ki jo lahko kupiš v drogeriji, mi je bilo pa všeč mleko od Natura Siberica, zelo nežno in s prijetnim vonjem, edino kar manjka je, da ne odstrani ličil..na splošno ti priporočam kar kremna čistila ali mleka, morda kakšno nežno peno ali gel le za tisti čas v mesecu, ko imaš kakšen mozoljček, pa še to pomoje ni potrebno menjavati, če imaš le kak mozolj ali dva :)

    2. Se še vedno držiš tega seznama? Si dodala še kakšno sestavino zraven?
      Mogoče bi make up odstranla z oljem, potem pa kožo očistila še s tem mlekom od NS. Od njih nimam še pa res čisto nič :)

      Delete
    3. Ja se :) Mogoče še kakšno, sicer pa gledam da sestavine prepoznam, če ne pa na tej strani preverim kako je sestavina ocenjena http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/
      Ja to bi šlo, ampak imej v mislih, da res nič ne odstrani ličil, tako da bi mogla že večino z oljem :) Samo toliko povem, da ne bi bila pol razočarana :)

  6. Great review Jana, I found this great for summer. Regarding the Phenoxyethanol their newer formulations do not have it and I believe if they are keep their Soil Association certification then they will be removing it from all their formulations fairly soon so whilst I don't believe the cancer claims at all if it bothers people I think a lot less brands will be using it soon due to the SA removing it from the approved list Xx
