NSpa Melting Cleansing Gel Review

NSpa Melting Cleansing Gel

Good Morning! Another day, another cleanser to try. I’ve recently rounded up all the cleansers scattered across my house into one bathroom and realised that I have a current stash of 6, some of which – like this one, was still laying untried.


I picked up the nspa Melting Cleansing Gel, a month or so ago on a whim on a walk around Asda having seen it reduced to just £2, I thought it would be a nice thing to try from a brand which I hadn’t delved into, only to find when I got to the till it had been reduced further to a mere 50p!


Firstly, how beautiful is the packaging on this – for me it’s very reminiscent (although yes, a different colour) to the Liz Earle boxes, and did look like quite a classy line to be sat on a supermarket shelf and the tubes inside are just as beautiful as the outer cardboard. High five to whoever designed this, because I really love it.


It many ways this is quite similar to the B. Clean Melting Gel Cleanser which I tried at the end of June, applying as a gel and emulsifying down when water is added into a cleansing milk. If you remember back you’ll know that I thought the B. Cleanser did a terrible job of cleaning my skin (especially removing eye make up) and I was left throughly unimpressed with the product, so I was unsure as to whether I would like or dislike this too.

Containing Grapeseed Oil (which is great for oily skin) and Neroli Oil (good as an antisceptic, so great for cleaning the skin throughly). I rub this all over my face quickly, and massage into the eye area which easily breaks down any eye makeup left behind. Whilst this may sound a little bizarre, when I’ve used in the shower if a little has managed to get into my mouth, this tastes so sweet! A nice side effect if you’re a bit of a clutz like me!


This works really well with my Magnitone sonic cleanser (review on that coming shortly), I normally chop and change between cleansers frequently – but this has left me impressed that I haven’t used anything else for the past few weeks.

Whilst it leaves my face feeling very clean (and there’s not any traces left behind when I follow up with a toner afterwards), it doesn’t leave my face feeling dry – personally I think that is down to the essential oils which nourish and moisturise as well as clean.


I don’t know if this was so cheap because it’s being discontinued, or I just managed to acquire a great, unexpected saving. I do hope however that it’s not being discontinued, and I can pick up another one – I don’t head to ASDA very often, but I’ll  be sure to check out more from the nspa range in the future (I do have a face mask review that I also picked up, coming this week).

Have you tried anything from the nspa range?

    I love NSPA! I use their body mists daily and their fresh raspberry shower scrub is gorgeous! (Cheeky plug but I reviewed them on my blog). I’m glad you loved the cleanser, I haven’t tried it but I might when I run out of my current one!
