I do like this cleanser - I feel like it effectively removes makeup and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. As other said, a little goes a long way. You can definitely get away with using only 1 pump... 2 if you are removing makeup. My only problem is that I feel like something in the formulation could be breaking me out because I have been having constant breakouts since using this. Too bad because this is otherwise a great cleanser.
I bought the Marshmallow Suds to be my morning cleanser. One pump is more than enough for my entire face and neck and I love how my skin feels afterwards. No tightness, dryness or uncomfortable feeling. My skin is happy and ready for the rest of my skincare. The bottle needs to be shaken every time before use, which honestly I do not mind. I'm more than willing to shake the bottle, instead of having an unnecessary emulsifiers in the cleanser for the sake of appearance and convenience. I love all EWB products and the thought that product changes are coming is giving me an anxiety attach (I hope this is more of a labeling/packaging, instead of product changes). That says a lot about how good the products are.
Marshmallow Suds has to be the best cleanser I have ever used. And I have used a lot of products! Before going green, I was burned many times by expensive lines promising to make my skin look amazing and was always sorely disappointed and ended up worse than when I started (acne, peeling, redness, etc.). I started using green products that were less than impressive with the actual cleansing aspect and that made me feel super oily. I was also suspect that some of the products weren't quite as natural as they claimed just based on the scent. Marshmallow Suds gave me a clean feeling that I had never experienced before. After rinsing my face was niether dry or oily feeling. It's doesn't give you that tight squeaky feeling that chemical products do. The scent is aromatic and a beautifully earthy, it is difficult to describe. So many times before, natural products and otherwise, I start a new product and my skin goes through breakouts and looking bad, which I have been assured by sellers of the product that is a normal stage, or your skin releasing the toxins and creating pimples or peeling. The first night I used marshmallow suds, I felt a weird kind if fresh and clean that was unusual to me, like my skin was breathing for the first time. It never went through a hideous break out phase, which I can only attribute to the truely natural sense of the product and the perfect combination of all of these fantastic things Ava has put together to create this cleanser. I was nervous at first, about the purchase, because of the cost and my experience in the past with expensive products that did not live up to my expectations (it sat in my cart for a long while). My only regret was not buying sooner! I will, and have, recommended all the Earthwise Beauty products that I have purchased and tried to everyone I know. I will not include the other products I love in this lengthy review I will continue to use Marshmallow Suds cleanser, among other Earthwise Beauty products.
You need so little and this cleanses well without drying the skin. However, the lack of any emulsifiers and the glass bottle makes this cleanser difficult to use. I have to shake it in a glass bottle in my tiled bathroom unless I want to walk out of the bathroom for a a full 15-30 seconds before it is well mixed again. I do really like the cleanser itself though.
I've struggled to find cleansers that don't make my skin feel tight and itchy after use. This one does the trick. Lovely botanical scent and silky texture.
