I have written about Yardley of London before- They were founded in 1770 in London. My mother remembers when she was a kid, Yardley wasn’t sold here but sometimes some relatives staying abroad used to bring their soaps or talcum powder as gifts for her family or sometimes her dad would buy some Yardley stuff from sailor who were returning from their voyages.
When I was asked to review their new face wash I totally jumped at the chance. I love that the pack sent to me came with some rice krispy chocolates wrapped in lavender colored foil.

Sorry about the bad photo. I should have waited for daylight!

I love the packaging of all Yardley of London products. Very elegant with vintage styling. This face wash is no exception. I love the translucent pack & the subtle graphics on it. The tube is finished with a flip-cap that does not feel cheap at all but very secure. I also love the gold trim.
The product is supposed to be a gentle cleanser for normal to dry skin. I have combination/oily skin. So I didn’t want to write this review on my own, I enlisted my mother to use it simultaneously & let me know what she thought of it (as she has normal to dry skin).
It’s soap free (gel) so it doesn’t lather. It leaves the skin soft & smooth with a gentle lingering lavender scent. It’s not completely suitable for me, though it cleans up my skin nicely the effect won’t last long. But it’s great for my mom (or anyone who has skin like hers!) It removes all the impurities.

Cost: Rs. 70 for 50g.

Not expensive

None I think of

Yardley has plans to unveil four face washes in total- two gentle cleansing & two deep cleansing. For now they have only released the gentle cleansing range in two variants- English Rose & English Lavender (same as the two Yardley body sprays that I have). I hope they launch the deep cleansing range soon, that is something I’d really like to try. 🙂
