I found a few threads on Eve Lom cleanser, but not ingredients.

Hi bex,

I have never used any Eve Lom products before, even though I initially really wanted to. So I don't know what the ingredients are, I only know it contains mineral oil & cocoa butter Question Sorry not much help Confused

Bex,

Google is your friend. I just typed in eve lom cleanser ingredients. The first link shows me this:

Ingredients: Paraffinum Liquididum (mineral oil), Cetearyl Alcohol, PEG-30 Lanolin, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Theobroma Cacao (cocoa butter) Aluminum Stearate, Chamomila Recutita (chamomile oil), Eugenia Caryophyllus (clove oil), Eucalyptus Globulus (eucalyptus oil), Humulus Lupulus (hops oil), Isopropyl Myristate, Phenoxyethanol, p-Chloro-m-Cresol, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben

HTH!

Thanks mtview!, unfortunately I don't use google enough & hence I forget how reliable it can be! Razz But I'm thinking the Eve Lom cleanser might actually clog my pores. Confused

Ewwww - I'm thinking the product looks really ugly; the first ingredient (and largest component of the product) is mineral oil .

That product is the best clenser ever for me - have been using it for the recent 4-5 years. I wanted to ditch it because of the min. oil, so during the last 10 months i've tried approx. 10 "natural" cleansers (Kosmea, PSF, Caudalie, Decleor, JMarini, etc., etc., ) - nothing compares to EL. The only other good cleanser i found during my "survey" is Kanebo's new "Creamy soap".

i agree with lin on this one -- Eve Lom is da bomb! any time i stray for more than a night or two (i only use it in the evenings), my face shows it. almost every alternative "natural" balm has shea in it, and shea breaks me out like mad. i will happily continue rubbing mineral oil into my face every night as it works better than anything else to unclog my pores. i guess i'm just not quite so pure as some of you.

yup, I loved EL when I had it, but did not use it every single night. Maybe if I did I might have had trouble as Isopropyl Myristate breaks me out.. then again, maybe the drawn-out removal process prevented that happening. I mainly gave it up cuz of the hard crystals that formed and were so scratchy.

I had to buy Eve Lom cleanser after reading so much rave about it and how EDS members still use it even though it's loaded with mineral oil. I was just dying to know what's so great about it since it's not cheap at all. I got mine a couple of weeks ago, but haven't tried it yet as I have too many cleansers to finish up at the moment. Would it be ok to keep it for a couple of months without opening it? Would it go bad?

Ouch, but it's so expensive! .. I couldn't pay that much for mineral oil ... but then, I don't like spending very much anyway =D

Yes, after some euphory on the beginning I also gave up the idea of "complete purity". BTW, I also use it in the evening only.

Me too. I'd like to use all pure/natural products, but some unpure products just work too well! So now I just stick with whatever works for my skin.

thank you both! i sometimes get a wee bit cranky when i'm flamed because i may choose to use something that isn't 100% natural. maybe it's my age, but i've finally realised i'd rather use something that works for me even if all the ingredients aren't "pure" instead of some 100% natural product that doesn't.... it's nice to know i'm not alone Very Happy

I used the Eve Lom cleanser a few years ago and could never work out if I actually liked it or not! It's the type of cleanser that won't work well for you if you don't use it properly, but if you have the time and patience to do the routine then you can get good results with continued use. I have quite sensitive skin though and found sometimes using the muslin cloth was too harsh on my skin, and you've got to make sure you keep your muslin cloths really clean which is a hassle.

I haven't started using my Eve Lom Cleanser yet, but from I've seen on EL website it looks so complicated. Can anyone help explain to me in a simpler way or give me any tips? Thanks! Smile

I have the same experience as Sel. The muslin cloth was too scratchy for me and my face felt very dry and tight after cleansing.

too true! i was out of hot water one night and it was near impossible to remove. the same could probably be said about OCM though.... as for the included muslin cloth -- ouch ouch ouch! it would shred my face alive. i've been using this wonderful amazing soft but effective washcloth that i got from tiger_tim. i'd cry if i lost it and keeping it clean is a pain in the arse. message to self -- get more! tiger, oh, tiger???

lynn2525 -- the whole routine needs to be done only once a week or so unless your skin is really congested and/or you've got time to pamper yourself. i just usually put a dab on my dry face and eyes and smear it around. add a little warm water and smear some more (it can look a little white at this point). then soak your flannel with hot water and kind of steam your face (i do this 2 to 3 times, depending on my mood). then rinse the cloth again and rub off cleanser, sunscreen, and makeup with little circular motions (my eyes, i just swipe). then i do another steam for good measure (it's really important to get everything off or clog city). then you can do a cooler steam or just a quick splash of cool water. i ususually do a spritz of Avene thermal water instead of the cool down as i don't like the idea of the hard water here settling in my pores as they close. it may sound complicated, but it really takes the same amount of time as most other wash systems if you're sure about getting all the gunk out....

you can, but those can be a little harsh (at least for me). if tiger_tim pops in, perhaps she can explain her great washcloth which has a soft fleecey like texture on one side and a muslin on the other (when you do need to be a bit more aggressive).

I have a wash cloth from Boots Botanics. It's kinda spongy and very soft. I think I'll try the muslin cloth that comes with EL cleanser first and if it's too harsh I'll switch to my Boots one.

I love EL cleanser. I don't want to because of the mineral oil but having tried other balms (I just think balm works better than cream cleansers to get make up off) which are more natural, it just works the best. Eve Lom believes in the less is more approach and personally I believe if she had been able to achieve the same effectiveness with 'natural' ingredients, she would have done it.

You don't have to do the full routine, just use it with a muslin cloth and hot water to get your make up off. Though of course if you do the routine you'd get the lymphatic drainage benefits, though personally I'm too lazy.

I have about 7 muslin cloths and I have at least 2 hot white washes in the machine a week so always have a clean one for using one once.

I buy babies' muslins from John Lewis or other department stores and cut them up into 4. Very inexpensive that way. I don't feel I need anything softer.

This is a fab site by the way. Thanks.
