Eve Lom Cleanser

I've been putting this review off for some time as I really do believe that if you haven't got anything nice to say, you shouldn't say anything at all!

I had extremely high hopes of this product, especially with all the hype I was given by the ladies at the Space Nk counter in Harvey Nicholls.

I purchased the Eve Lom Starter Collection at the beauty event in Birmingham and I have to say it was the biggest mistake of my life!

The cleanser left my face sore and blotchy (and yes I had used it exactly as directed by the packaging and the ladies at the beauty counter). Apparently it wasn't just me being hyper sensitive to my appearance either, for when I wondered down stairs the following morning I was met with 'Oh my goodness, what on earth have you done to your face?!'

Not a great start to any morning!!

Being the fool that I am, I then decided to give the product another try because after all the reaction might just have been because I was 'not used to it'.

Again I had a bad reaction. Suffice it to say it will not be getting a third chance!

It has been over a month now and my skin has just started to settle down. My usually combination, fairly tough skin is now hyper sensitive and red.

If you are planning on using this product I would definitely urge you to do further investigation first.


  1. wow that product doesn't sound great. I love reviews! thanks for the heads up.

  2. It might not be this bad for everyone but i would urge people to try it before spending the money. I know i wished i had!

    Cool, well hi!!

    I'll head over there now.
