I'm very familiar with the deodorant and body butter from Nourish, and I love both! When Nourish had their Black Friday sale, I decided to pick up the new moisturizing cleanser because I thought the ingredients were fantastic. And, I wanted to see if it lived up to its 'moisturizing' claims. For those of you that watch me on Youtube or have kept up with my cleanser history, you'll know I don't ever use lathering cleansers. They normally are much too harsh for my skin and dermatitis, and strip my skin, leaving it dry and tight.
However, I was pleasantly surprised when I tried the Nourish cleanser. The first time I tried it, my dermatitis was acting up, so it did burn quite a bit, but now that my skin has settled down, I don't experience any burning. I do want to note early on that I don't use this every day and I wouldn't use this every day.
I'll use the Nourish cleanser every 3/4 days, usually in the shower. I take off my makeup with coconut oil beforehand, but I like that the cleanser removes any last trace of makeup as well as the coconut residue. It doesn't leave my face dry or tight overall, but on the nights I use this, I do notice my face isn't as hydrated as when I use my Aurelia Probiotic Cleanser (testing) or my Devita Mud Mask (recently featured in my December Favorites). A huge plus, though, is that I am acne prone and it hasn't broken me out at all. The cleanser itself is a white pearly color, and it is very liquidy. I do sort of wish it came in a pump, because it is very hard to control the amount that comes out - it sort of just pours. You really only need a little.
I really like the ingredients (only one lathering agent), the price point, and how well it removes any residue from my face every few days. I will definitely repurchase and now I can actually say I have a lathering cleanser I recommend!
