Towards the end of last year, I was sent a few products from Nürish Organics and after being thoroughly impressed by everything, I knew I had to try their cleanser. A well-timed Saffron Rouge sale was all it took for me to take the plunge with Washed Away...
"A gentle yet very effective cream cleanser enriched with quinoa protein and rich tropical butters. Leaves the skin feeling clean and vibrant. Wet face and massage a pea-sized amount to remove makeup or just to cleanse the face at the end of a long day. Can be used to obliterate even the toughest waterproof eye makeup."As a cleanser, I like it. It's a little runny - more of a milk consistency than a cream - but it's gentle and leaves my skin feeling clean, if maybe the slightest bit drier than I'd like. As a makeup remover, I'm less impressed. It does a good job removing face makeup, but it struggles to take off mascara and eye liner. Yes, it gets it off in the end, but it takes 2-3 applications and more rubbing than I'd like for such a delicate area. (I'm not talking about anything waterproof either!) The scent was also just okay. A blend of bergamot, petitgrain, lemon, orange, rosemary, neroli, and ylang ylang, it smells very sharp to me. Not at all citrusy, like one might expect from the ingredients, but instead, more of a floral/herbal cross.

The Bottom Line
More succinct than usual, but I think that covers everything. Washed Away was a so-so product for me, though I'd still recommend other products from Nürish's line. Best Scrub Ever is my favorite scrub at the moment and Daily Glow is a great oil that's stayed in rotation these last few months as well.
