Am back with the review of one more product from Plum Goodness. I have reviewed some of their products earlier, you can check them out here. Today am going to review Plum Goodness Hello Aloe Gentle Cleansing Lotion which is free from SLS/SLES, parabens, silicones and phthalates. I generally don’t use cleansing lotions or milk. But I got this free with my Plum order. So I started using it. Want to know how it works? Then read more.
Why invent chemical cocktails? Start with aloe juice, add mild cleansing complex with natural oils, finish with hint of fragrance. Cleansers should be that simple, and sensible.
Get rid of makeup, grime and everything else that your face doesn’t need, in one simple, caring swipe. Made with safe, natural ingredients and aloe juice. Comes with a convenient pump dispenser – no more tilts and spills.
Aqua (Water), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ethylhexylglycerine, FDA Approved Colours, Fragrance, Glycerin, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine
Rs.390 for 200ml (available on discount. I will post the links below)
Plum Goodness Hello Aloe Gentle Cleansing Lotion comes in a convenient pump packaging with a lock mechanism. The lock ensures the product doesn’t get spilled while travelling. Overall, a simple, sensible and clean packaging. But I wish they had travel-sized versions too. Its high time Plum came with a travel kit.
Plum Goodness Hello Aloe Gentle Cleansing Lotion is white color with a very slight green tint if you observe closely. It has a medium consistency, not too thick or too runny. The fragrance is artificial like usual lotions. I don’t like it much and don’t understand why Plum add fragrance in their products. But its mild and won’t bother you much.
I usually follow a double-cleansing method. I first use cleansing milk or oils to remove sunscreen (I don’t wear makeup) and then follow it up with my regular face wash. Even if you are not someone who wears makeup, I would still advise you to use a cleansing milk or oil for thorough deep cleansing.
I take a coin sized amount of Plum Goodness Hello Aloe Gentle Cleansing Lotion in my hands and massage all over my face. You can also pour some on a cotton pad and gently wipe over your face. I also massage some on my hands and feet where I have applied sunscreen. After all you do need to remove sunscreen from your hands and feet too right?
Plum Goodness Hello Aloe Gentle Cleansing Lotion, just as the name claims, is very gentle on the skin. It cleanses my skin well while also hydrating it. Though its a lotion, after cleansing, you get a matte look. It doesn’t make your face oily or greasy. I would suggest following up with your regular face wash after this for a more complete cleansing. But in case, you don’t have access to water (maybe you are traveling), then this should be just fine.
Plum Goodness Hello Aloe Gentle Cleansing Lotion is suitable for all skin types. It didn’t cause me any breakouts or irritations. It contains aloe juice which is very good for skin along with sunflower seed oil for cleansing. The glycerin content makes sure skin doesn’t become dry. The only con I can see is the addition of fragrance and colors which I feel are not needed for a cleansing lotion.

Yes, it satisfies all its claims.

Overall, I like the motto of Plum Goodness Hello Aloe Gentle Cleansing Lotion – “Sensible Cleansing! Why invent chemical cocktails? Start with aloe juice, add mild cleansing complex with natural oils, finish with hint of fragrance. Cleansers should be that simple, and sensible.” As claimed, its simple and sensible. I would recommend you to try this atleast once.
