Ali Mac Camellia Cleansing Melt

Ali Mac Camellia Cleansing Melt Ali Mac Camellia Cleansing Melt

As my interest in skincare grows more and more by the day I've found myself using so many different types or products over the last six months, particularly cleansers. From gels, to creams and to balms I've tried them all with my preference changing pretty much on a day to day basis depending on how I feel.

Recently I have been trialling the Ali Mac Camellia Cleansing Melt* which is from the new natural and organic skincare brand Ali Mac. The Ali Mac skincare range has been developed in order to provide a skincare brand that is free from synthetic ingredients, whereby only natural and organic ingredients are used that are ethically sourced.

The Ali Mac Camellia Cleansing Melt* is of a balm consistency (mine melted in this heat though so I had to pop it in the fridge) of which you put a small amount onto your fingers and then work it into your face to remove your make up. I use this as a pre cleanse before I use either my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish or the Good Things Creamy Cleanser, however please note I only double cleanse if I've being wearing make up as I like to be sure I've removed everything.

I must say I think it breaks my make up down incredibly well, I even used it on my eye make up which I don't normally do as I tend to prefer using a dedicated eye make up remover for this. I do like to test these things properly however so for the purpose of my review I made sure I tried this and I can happily report it worked pretty well indeed. The product itself caused no stinging or soreness around my eyes which I was initially wary about so I will definitely be using this on my eyes in the future. 

This product is incredibly smooth on the skin, particularly if it has melted like mine did one evening! It is an oil based cleanser which I've cone to learn is nothing bad if you have oily skin, they for me have never made my skin any worse, in fact I would say that they have improved my skin in general. This cleanser leaves my skin feeling so good, it is lovely and moisturised without feeling greasy in the slightest. A little goes a long way with this therefore there is no need to use a lot of the product; I find that just two small 5pence sizes of the product is sufficient. Once I've massaged this into my face I remove it with a warm to hot flannel which removes the product leaving my face feeling so soft and hydrated...that's before I second cleanse.

In regards to the smell of this I personally love it as I'm a huge fan of anything remotely citrus, I find that the lemon peel oil within this really stands out which for some may be a little too much yet for me it makes my evening cleanse even more enjoyable.

Using this product has been lovely; I really like knowing I'm using something natural on my face that is also cruelty free. I think at £18.95 it is not a budget cleanser however if you're looking for something natural, organic and cruelty free then why not check out Ali Mac.

  1. This sounds amazing I love organic skin care so this is right up my street :) I normally spend this amount on skincare if I am not using LUSH that is as this reminds me of ultrabrand cleanser from the LUSH range I will be trying this out as I like milk cleansers compared to more liquid type ones as I feel they last much longer and remove make-up better xx

  6. I'm not often interested in new skincare products but this one did draw my attention! I normally like to remove my make-up with a cleansing wipe before I wash my face with my clarisonic + face wash and I can see how this could replace the cleansing wipes in the process and do some extra good for my skin!
    I have oily skin and just like you said, oil-based products don't necessarily are bad for oily skin, and I like to use oil-based make-up removers to balance the drying products I use to control my acne.
    Other than sounding perfect for me, it is cruelty free and organic… which makes it a lot better. Jackpot!
    The shipping worldwide is kind of expensive but I want to try it anyways, maybe it'll be my *luxury make-up remover* :)
