LATHER Ultra Mild Face Wash

As soon as my Peter Lamas Detoxifying Citrus C Facial Cleanser ran out, my next cleanser option was the Ultra Mild Face Wash. It’s from the brand called Lather. I got the 1 fl oz/ 29ml sample bottle. Their 6 fl oz/ 177 ml retails for $19.

What it’s supposed to do:

  • Cleanses your face without getting rid of your skin’s emollients
  • Leaves your skin glowing
  • Prepares your skin for toning and moisturizing

How to use:

  • Massage the cleanser unto your damp skin. Use warm water to rinse.

Natural ingredients:

  • Water
  • Aloe vera
  • Rosemary
  • Pomegranate
  • Chamomile
  • Olive
  • White Tea
  • Lavender

Price: 6 fl oz/ 177 ml retails for $19

Other information:

  • Environment-friendly
  • Paraben-free
  • Sulfate-free
  • Certified organic
  • Cruelty-free

My opinion:

This product lasted for a month. As stated in the name, it is really mild. It also doesn’t leave my eyes in tears. It has a scent but unlike most organic products, I love the citrus smell it gives off.

Pros:

  • Gentle on skin (and eyes!)
  • Paraben and sulfate-free
  • Doesn’t dry out your skin
  • Cruelty-free

Cons:

  • It doesn’t totally remove all makeup unlike some other cleansers do.
  • Nothing remarkable for a cleanser.
