STOP PRESS!!! New Eve Lom Cleanser - Morning Time Cleanser

So, my regular readers and YT subscribers will know that Eve Lom's cleanser is my HG. I've reviewed many dupes on the market and still come back to her original cleanser. Last Friday I received a press release about the newest skincare item she has brought out - which is called the Morning Time Cleanser.

Imagine my excitement! I hotfooted it to my nearest Spacenk to check it out. Firstly, it retails £35 for 125ml. The SA told me that it is meant to be a convenient version of the original, in a tube so easy for travel and no need for the muslin cloth. She also said that it was a 'lighter' version of the original formula and designed for those who wanted to use something in the morning. I questioned her further as Eve Lom's philosophy is to cleanser once in the day, in the evening, with the muslin cloth and then in the morning only use water to wash your face with the muslin cloth. Cleansing again in the morning though? Sounds a bit to me trying to introduce another step in the regime. I asked whether it was to replace the original version and the SA said no. I'm confused. I think I need to go to an Eve Lom specialist at one of the spas to ask further : D

Now, the muslin cloth for me is all part of the routine. And I rather liked the fact that my skin got used to using the cleansing balm in the evening and only water in the morning - which I think is one of the reasons my oil production has regulated since using this balm.

Anyone bought it yet and used it? Do let me know what you think. I'm on a no buy of course (and still have my current Eve Lom pot to get through)so won't be purchasing this now.



  1. When I read that this has regulated your oil control, it makes me want to try this even more. I've been so tempted but haven't picked it up. I think I would try the balm first but it does sound like a bit of more clarification is needed for the morning cleanser.
    I use Purity by Philosophy - I know you said it dries out your skin but for me it works well...never any tightening of the skin.
    Maybe I'll try the EL balm when Winter rolls around....:)

  2. Hi there
    Yes, if you're open to the price and to giving it a bit of time for your skin to get used to the routine and product - I would rec trying the balm first.
    Purity was effective just strong for me. Glad though that you find it works for you well....
    I hvnt tried the EL balm (nor Clinique) so let me know how it goes : D

  3. That is weird about the morning cleansing step being added which seems to go against her philosophy! Would be interesting to know the reasoning behind it. I've never used her products but am always tempted to buy the starter kit to try them out.

    PS Purity didn't work for me either - it completely dried my face out. I thought I was the only one!

  4. Melissa - I know. If I get clarification I will be sure to update!

    Re Purity - it's really divided on this. I do think it's like 50/50 on those who like it and those who don't!
