Review // Lush 'Ultrabland' facial cleanser

A few months back I jetted off to New York for six days of sightseeing and terrible eating habits. Turns out the eating habits followed me home - shocked and devastated. I started to find that my skin was dry, bumpy and generally not in good condition. I couldn't wait to come home and slather my face in Ultrabland (I had been too scared of the pot exploding on the flight and being greeted with something out of a horror film when I opened my suitcase stateside).
I've always been quite lucky with my skin, and have had very few breakouts in my 23 (nearly 24) years of gracing this planet. 
A while ago, I tried to use a Glamglow face mask, and my skin ended up breaking out hideously, to the point that I had to go to the doctors and had Estee Lauder contact me in regards to the rash - FYI, I've never had a breakout from any product before, and I don't know what was in this badboy to cause me to breakout so hideously. After this, I decided to stop pratting around with my skincare, and to start investing in my face - besides from the occasional lip fillers.
So, fast forward a few months and I picked up the Ultrabland facial cleanser from Lush, along with Cup O' Cofee which is a face scrub (only use it a few times a week folks, it's strong stuff). For £13.50 for 100g it's pretty pricey, but the pot lasts me around 2/3 months and I use it 5 times a week. 
The ingredients used in this tub of victory are; Almond Oil, Rose Water, Beeswax, Honey, Fresh Irish Extract, Glycerine, Rose Absolute and Tincture of Benzoin. Now, the last three products are a bit of a mouthful, but the rest of the products are natural and make for a super creamy and delightful smelling product. 
I massage a tiny bit of this holy grail into damp skin, leave it on for a few minutes before removing it with a wet cloth. The smell is sweet but not overpowering, and it leaves the skin feeling incredibly smooth and flawless. 
I cannot rate this product highly enough, and I now use this and only this as a cleanser on my face to avoid anymore super rashes like what I received from the Glamglow mask. 
I really like that I can pronounce most of the products ingredients, and if you don't believe my review, then quickly pop over to the Lush webpage and check all the reviews for yourself!
