Handmade Naturals Organic Avocado & Plum Face Cleansing Lotion

Handmade Naturals Organic Avocado & Plum Face Cleansing Lotion, £7.75/100ml

If you watched my latest haul video, then you will know that I purchased a few items from new-to-me brand, Handmade Naturals. Today, I am talking about one of those products - the avocado & plum cleansing lotion.

The plastic packaging is clean, minimal and simplistic, and it can be recycled once empty. The lotion is dispensed via an airless pump, which keeps product wastage to a minimum and makes using the product easy and hygienic. This cleansing lotion is unscented, meaning no additional fragrance has been added to the natural ingredients, but the natural scent that comes through is a subtle marzipan fragrance, which is just a lovely surprise!

I use this cleanser two ways; if using on a bare face in the shower, I will apply it to a damp face with my fingertips, massaging it in and rinsing away gently; if using it to remove make-up or cleanse my bare face in the evening, I apply the lotion to a dry face with a re-usable cotton pad. I remove it with the cotton pad, sometimes dampening it with warm water to ensure every trace of make-up is removed. I'll usually follow this up with a spritz of rosewater toner and then apply moisturiser and/or facial oil.
The lotion is extremely gentle and pleasant to use. It has a light consistency and only 1-2 pumps are needed per application. I find it removes my make-up very well, but I do use a separate eye make-up remover, which is down to personal preference. This product contains just seven natural ingredients and is free from the usual nasty chemicals; organic and/or Fair Trade ingredients are used wherever possible and all products are certified cruelty-free. The lotion has had no ill effects on my sensitive skin and is helping to keep it clear and soft. Handmade Naturals suggest using this product if you are particularly sensitive to flower extracts and essential oils. They even suggest trying this as a light daily moisturiser, making it a multi-purpose product! I'd definitely recommend giving this cleanser a try, especially if you suffer with sensitive and/or congested skin. I feel the price point is spot-on, offering a very affordable natural option to customers.

Purified water, unrefined avocado oil, unrefined plum kernel oil, vegetable glycerine, emulsifying wax, aspen bark and vitamin E.

Have you tried anything from Handmade Naturals?


  1. This product sounds so lovely Emma and definitely something I would like to try sometime. I have sensitive skin at times so those ingredients and info listed sound appropriate for me. The price is amazing too. I’m currently on a little spending ban after purchasing some more beauty items but this product is certainly on my wish list now! :-) xx
