Nourish Kale Enzymatic Exfoliating Cleanser

7 Oct 2014

Nourish have a new product on the block...their Kale Exfoliating Cleanser* which is an 81% organic multi-tasking product. You can use it as a cleanser, a mask and as a mini facial. It features pomegrante enzymes to "gently exfoliate" your skin while organic kale extract "helps to increase suppleness". We've all heard about how eating kale is good for you, so Nourish have put it into a cleanser, to give you extra benefits!
I have tried their Kale eye cream which left my eye area feeling soft and de-puffed however it didn't do much for my dark circles so it wasn't a "wow" product for me however Nourish have really out-done themselves with this multitasking product. It is pale green in colour and quite rough in texture but it isn't scratchy on the skin at all. Kaolin clay is one of the top ingredients which gives it the rough texture and helps to de-clog pores. This is a cleanser I would choose for my "second cleanse" as I wouldn't use this over my eyes to take off make-up but it works to really get down into my skin and cleanse!

It gently exfoliates my skin, leaving it really soft & brighter. The kale is supposed to defend against free radicals and urban pollution which is something I think we could all do with nowadays, especially if you live in a city. I've read reviews where people say it smells floral-y but I think it smells like vegetables personally haha! I don't know if it's because it's in my mind that I'm rubbing a kale-based product on my face but to me, it smells like veggies. Not in a bad way, it isn't off-putting at all, I think it's quite good that it smells so natural. 

I also used this as a facial mask which was quite strange but left my skin feeling and looking much better. I've had quite a few nasty chin spots the past couple of weeks so I've been masking, masking, masking to try to get rid of them! I popped a layer of this on, left it for 5 minutes and then exfoliated for a minute and washed it off with a hot flannel as usual. My skin looked much better and the redness had even lessened slightly and made one huge one feel much less sore.

The only slightly annoying thing about this is that when you remove it with a flannel, it's a little hard to get it all off and I sometimes end up with small exfoliating bits on my face that I can feel when I apply my facial oil afterwards but it's nothing that a bit of toner on a cotton pad can't sort out!

You can get it from Love Lula for £16.50 which I personally think is quite steep for 50ml however you do only need a small amount to cleanse! 

Have you tried this new release or are you planning on picking it up?

  1. Great review Amber, I brought this product a few weeks back. I feel that it is effective but I don't like the smell. I do like how my skin feels but I feel like you need a good amount for either a mask or cleanser to get the job done. So I think for 50 ml the price is high and I'm not sure if I would buy it again. (I would if the amount of product went up and the price stayed the same, or I just used it as a mask?!)

    1. Thanks Liz! I agree, I just remembered I forgot to mention the price so I just updated my post haha! It is quite steep for only 50ml considering most cleansers come in 100ml or bigger so it might be worth them doubling the size but only putting up the price slightly? I do think its effective though, but the smell has to grow on you aha :) xx

  2. Interesting to get your thoughts, I was offered this for review but chose to decline, I'm in two minds about this one because of price & I don't feel the need to exfoliate very often, skin is too sensitive for that shizz :D

  4. Nice review Amber!
    I am curious about the smell now :-). Used as a weekly face exfoliator, I don't think this product is that expensive. … xx

  5. Great review Amber! I've been intrigued about this product because it contains Kale, even though I'm not sure I'd be too fond of a salad scent lol. For now I'm good with OLO brand new day, but loved reading your thoughts :) xx
