Review on The Organic Pharmacy: Carrot Butter Cleanser

Overview: The Organic Pharmacy: Carrot Butter Cleanser is an organic, high quality balm cleanser that instantly melts on contact with the skin. The product contains no artificial chemicals, harsh preservatives or fragrances. :)

Scent: The cleanser smells very natural and earthy with hints of methanol. Overall the scent reminds me of Vicks.

Directions & My Personal Experience: I usually use the product at night to remove my make-up and eyeliner before I go to bed. The balm very rich and nourishing so I only scoop out a dime size amount of cleanser with the provided spatula. Then I gently and evenly apply the balm all over my face. The cleanser feels greasy, but it doesn't clog pores. Next, I wet my muslin cloth with hot water. Then using the warm cloth I remove the product and polish my skin. Lastly I splash my face with warm water then pat dry with a towel. The cleanser leaves my skin , clean, smooth, soft, and matte (i.e. no sheen).

Cons: The product only has a shelf-life of six months. The product is a bit pricey £31.95.

Final words: I highly recommend this product, especially to people who currently have dry and flaky skin.

Grade: B

I heard that carrots are anti-aging...or s/t to that effect....and school is making me old!

@Anonymous I think the product is fit for every skin type. The product did not cause me to breakout. I think the balm will most likely benefit those with dry and flaky skin.

Is this stuff like scented Vaseline?

@ Laura the balm is nothing like Vaseline. The Carrot Butter Cleanser doesn't have petroleum jelly in it. Here's the ingredients in the Carrot Butter Cleanser:

Jojoba (Simmondsia Chinensis), Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma Cacao) , Coconut Oil (Cocos Nucifera), Carrot (Daucus Carrota), Marigold (Calendula Officinalis), St Johns Wort (Hypericum Perforatum), Rosemary (Rosamarium Officinale), Sesame Seed Oil (Sesamum Indicum), Vitamin E (Tochopherol), Lavender (Lavandula Officinalis), Chamomile (Anthemis Nobilis), Sunflower Oil (Helianthus Annus), Beeswax (Cera Alba) [Source:]
