Finally I manage to get some goodies from Lush and beside "Favorites' from Lush, I also bought an cleanser called Herbalism. Since I have had quite a few problems with my skin in the past six months, I wanted something natural but still powerful enough to cleanse my skin and maybe help my breakouts a bit.
In the mixture, there are tiny pieces of rice bran and almonds, that exfoliate skin, Nettles, rosemary and rice bran vinegar work to cleanse the skin, chamomile blue oil and rose absolute are used for balancing skin tone.
I find this cleanser really gentle, it didn't rub my skin and it made it really soft and cleansed. I really didn't have the need to use moisturiser after the cleanse (I know, it's wrong!), because I'm pretty sure Kaolin in the Herbalism did the job for me.
How to use it: Lush web page advice to dampen your skin with warm water. Break off a piece of your cleanser, and mix with a little warm water to create a paste. Massage onto your face and body, rinse thoroughly and pat dry.
When mixed with water, cleanser does turn to rather liquid paste, but not that noticeable, you still are able to apply it all over your face. While you're applying it, you can smell the Kaolin, but it's a pleasant smell, nothing major.
I can't really tell any other differences in my skin, after using it, because I have a lot of hormonal skin problems, so one natural cleanser didn't do a lot for me, beside cleaning it, because I need something more powerful (and not natural, unfortunately).
So if you are looking for a cleanser that would help solved your acne problems (even though Lush Herbalism was made for it), I really would bet on that one, that much (do keep in mind that my acne damage is extreme).
But I you are looking for something really gentle, that cleanse your skin and leaves it super soft (what more does a basic customer need), that's a great cleanser for you.
