Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser Review

Well, isn’t this just a pot of joy? I knew I wanted to try this the second I saw it. I’m all for tactile beauty buys and, like a child, I’m drawn to bright colours, so I guess I was always going to love an orange jelly I can slather all over my face. But this one, I’ve learnt, is so much more than just great fun to use.

Now, I wouldn't typically rave about cleansers - they just go slooshing down the drain, after all - but the Melting Cleanser has inexplicably improved my skin in just four weeks. A generous blob massaged into dry skin can tackle even waterproof mascara, as the lush jelly emulsifies into a slippery, unctuous oil. I smooth it all over then add some water to whip it into milky lather, and by the time I've rinsed it off, my skin feels clean yet cosseted. 

I tend to do those three steps twice if I’m taking my makeup off; the first cleanse whips away surface grime and the second reaches right into my pores. You know when you think you've removed your makeup yet still wake up with panda eyes? This makes that bugbear a thing of the past, yet manages to still be supremely gentle. 

My skin is of the painfully over-reactive, fragile type; sometimes it's dry, sometimes it's bumpy, sometimes it looks like I've skipped three nights' sleep. Yet this stuff means my skin hasn’t seen a spot or a parched patch in the four weeks I've used it, which is quite the miracle for pores as unpredictable as mine.
