Zum Wash® Natural Liquid Soap for Hands and Body Lemongrass -- 8 fl oz
Love this as a facial cleanser
After having purchased and been very pleased with Zum Face Lemon and Geranium Facial Cleanser, I was perusing their website and noticed that both that product and this one have a nearly identical ingredients list. Since they're both basically the same product but this one's cheaper by the oz., I use it as a facial cleanser.
Being an oil-based product, I find that this doesn't strip my skin or leave me dried out like other foaming cleansers do. I apply it to dry skin, then foam & rinse with hot water. It cleanses gently and thoroughly, leaving my skin squeaky clean and soft.
For the very reasons I love it as a facial cleanser, I'm not fond of it as a body wash. I don't want to be left squeaky-clean after showering -- I prefer something more softening & moisturizing.
While I will continue to buy this, the ugly packaging and ridiculous name (though it's not nearly as eye-roll worthy as the absurdly named "Zum Face" cleanser) make me want to hide it when guests come over and I hate seeing it in my bathroom. We usually peel the label off.
This is a unisex product - both my partner & I use it as a facial cleanser. Note that it's quite watery in consistency so you have to be a bit careful when dispensing it. About 1/3 of a pump is more than adequate to cover & cleanse my face.
