Lush Buche de Noel Facial Cleanser: Review

Lush Buche de Noel Facial Cleanser: Review
Available for a limited time as a part of the annual Lush Holiday Collection, the beloved Buche de Noel Facial Cleanser ($12.95 CAD for 100g) is a unique solid face wash loaded with fresh ingredients that promise a glowing holiday complexion. To learn more about this product and read my review, click......

Packaged in a recyclable black plastic tub containing 100g of product, the Buche de Noel Facial Cleanser is a solid face wash with a smooshed, oatmeal-like appearance. Although it doesn't look too pretty, the cleanser smells just lovely! Because the "log" is wrapped with a sheet of nori "bark", you get an immediate whiff of seaweed when you open up the jar. However, the actual cleanser has a yummy and sweet nutty fragrance thanks to the ground almonds that gently exfoliate the skin.

Also formulated with kaolin, cocoa butter, almond oil, and a dash of cranberry bits for some festivity, Buche de Noel has a moist yet crumbly cookie dough texture. Although the product doesn't foam, it gets nice and creamy once mixed with water. The cleanser is kind of messy as bits of cranberry and almond invariably falls into the sink or onto the counter. However, it rinses off very nicely, leaving behind a clean and fresh feeling. Thanks to the ground almonds and bits of cranberry, Buche de Noel also doubles as a face scrub; it gently exfoliates while leaving the skin hydrated but non-greasy.
Overall, the Buche de Noel is undoubtedly one of my favorite Lush holiday products, the formulation smells amazing and the cleanser does a great job at gently cleansing and exfoliating the skin. If you haven't already given it a try, definitely pick one up when the Lush holiday collection rolls around!
