I don’t want to come across all Bugs Bunny, although at the moment, I can’t get enough of carrots. That’s because I am slathering them and their antioxidant properties over my skin, courtesy of the Organic Pharmacy’s Carrot Butter Cleanser.

Whilst I try to recycle, I try to eat healthily and I try to think about polar bears every time I lust after exotic, far-flung holidays, sometimes it’s incredibly hard. So I love it when a favourite product has the added bonus of being natural, and even more so when it’s organic.

Carrot Butter CleanserThe Organic Pharmacy’s Carrot Butter Cleanser is full of natural ingredients with impressive credentials: Antioxidant carrot (of course), smoothing Shea and Cocoa butter and soothing Chamomile, Rosemary and Lavender. What’s even better is that they actually work. There’s a lot of skepticism about whether natural products can have the same results as chemicals, and while I can’t speak for the entire beauty canon, this cleanser is pretty much one of the best I’ve tried – and I’m a product junkie.

Although I don’t use foundation, I do wear quite a lot of dark, heavy eye make-up (My name is Lauren, and I am a reformed teenage indie kid), which can be difficult to remove. This is one of the only cleansers that effectively gets stubborn make-up to disappear faster than you can say David Blaine. It does leave some dark smudges on the muslin cloth; a small price to pay for quick, effective cleansing, which frankly is what we’re all after. The cleanser has a waxy texture, a herby smell, and comes with a little spatula in order to keep it germ free. Massage it into your skin, and then rinse off with a muslin cloth soaked in warm water. Easy.
