Mu London Organic Rose Foaming Face Wash
So, when her skin started to get a little congested under the surface recently (no actual spots, but a little bumpy on the cheeks) I gave her the Mu London Organic Rose Foaming Face Wash to use when washing her face at night (she'd just been using water up until this point). I don't believe in using harsh treatments when young skin starts getting a bit oilier; quite often just stepping up with a gentle cleanser is enough to be getting on with, and the Mu London has been perfect for this. We also both like the smell; a subtle natural rose.
The Mu London Face Wash base is a vegetable oil liquid soap (sunflower and coconut) enriched with rose otto essential oil and rosehip extract. It cleans skin thoroughly without stripping it, and Miss London's skin has been returned to its baby-smoothness. As she gets older we'll most likely have to introduce other products into her daily routine, but at the moment the Mu London Face Wash and sunscreen on very sunny days are all that we use.
I also use the Mu London wash myself in the morning, and it doesn't make my normal to dry skin feel uncomfortable. It won't remove heavy makeup (and don't get it in your eyes because that does sting) but it is a good, gentle, simply formulated cleanser. If you have any spotty teens or pre-teens, I'd strongly suggest trying something like this before letting them attack their skin with harsh anti-bacterial cleansers.
