Hope you're all well? I've been considering writing an updated review on the Sunday Riley Blue Moon Cleanser for a while and to be honest I haven't done many of these. However, I have recently finished this cleanser and wanted to write about why I won't be re-purchasing this product, despite really liking the results. I definitely don't want to come across like I'm bashing this cleanser, as it's beautiful in many ways and I think Sunday Riley is a fantastic skincare brand, but at the same time I want to be honest about my experience with this particular cleansing balm, seeing as I'm a self confessed skincare Junkie. I hope this post is informative and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below.
The dark blue packaging and gold writing make this product look and feel extremely majestic before you even open the lid. You're greeted with a beautiful light blue product that has a faint Chocolate Orange type scent.It's definitely an exciting experience for anyone interested in skincare. The Cleansing Balm itself uses Sunday Riley's patented NV-5 Ageless Complex, which marries five traditional skincare ingredients (Including Moringa) with hi-tech processes, to maximise reparative and skin brightening properties.
Despite enjoying the product, I just can't push myself to repurchase it due to it's peculiar texture. I must admit I was expecting something similar to either the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm, or maybe the Clinique Cleansing Balm. It's almost £50, so for that price I think the product needs to be pretty much on point to justify the price tag. However, I found the texture to be firm and grainy and not in a nice way. It does begin loosen up after 30-40 seconds(ish) but to be honest, I just feel like the texture really let this product down. I actually lost a lot of product by dropping it in the bath or down the sink, as it was to uneven to control. The texture is pretty much the only reason I won't be repurchasing, as apart from being a bit of a nightmare to handle, the results were lovely. Skin appears brighter, smoother and generally more healthy looking!
Have you tried this product? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below. I was a little worried about posting this, as I do like this product, but I would struggle to recommend this at almost £50! It's a lot of money to spend on a skincare product that doesn't 100% deliver.
