Nutra-Lift Herbal Nonsoap cleanser- reviewed and recommended

Nutra-Lift has reformulated its Herbal Nonsoap cleanser ($24 for 8oz) as an aloe-based gel. As I never got to try the old version, I can’t offer a comparison. However, I can say that I like this cleanser a lot as it not only cleanses gently and effectively, but also delivers some great antioxidants to my skin right at the get go of my daily regimen.

Nutra-Lift recommends rubbing Herbal Nonsoap onto dry skin and leaving it for 30 seconds before rinsing. I tend to leave it on for a minimum of two minutes whilst I clean my teeth and tidy the bathroom, hoping to get the maximum benefit from the antioxidant complex that includes organic botanicals such as rose hips, olive leaf and green tea.

There are a couple of vitamin Bs, vitamin A, E and C. Red clover also contains the antioxidant tocopherol, which is a form of vitamin E. Research from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) confirms that red clover extract contains four anti-tumor compounds.

The non-soap soapy stuff is provided by potassium coconate (saponified coconut oil), sodium coco sulfate and wheat germate.

The only thing to note is that although ethoxydiglycol, a solvent, is considered to have a very low order of toxicity, it ultimately contains ether, and therefore can be linked to cancer, developmental/reproductive toxicity, allergic reactions and endocrine disruptions.

I have no idea why colloidal sulphur is included (unless as an antibacterial), but I did read somewhere that low concentrations protect against radiation. So pack this cleanser next time you travel in the vicinity of Chernobyl.

    Synergie, you aren't going to like this. There is no lather at all.

    Noticed via twitter you are soliciting comments to sample and review this cleanser. I have oily skin, too oily for my age,48.5 today. Everyone assumes I overdry but I don't. Have been happily using the Vital Image 3 steps and would like to simplify. I am intrigued by the 3 in one and I live in FL. Would be quicker to replenish my supply directly from Nutra-Lift if I like the results. Or as you may be aware, I know I can also order from your shop as I took advantage of your recent promotions scoring both the eye and body promos with one shot. So cool! Thanks!

    hi marta, i would love to actually have my brother try this cleanser. i have bought him everything under the sun and he is convinced he has acne when he doesnt. he's just a guy who doesn't, no matter how many times/ways i explain it, just isn't getting it. he dries his skin out then his body kicks in and produces more oil, along with approaching his mid 30's, he's just not treating the prob the right way. he hates putting on lotion so i have been on the hunt for a good soap free cleanser that will clean his skin thouroughly but give it some benefits too. so if i could be put up for the give away that would be great. i will report back on what i see as well as make him give you a full report on what he thought and felt. thanks so much, yours, lisa

    I'd love to try it. I'm trying to like the last one I got from Vitacost with the rosehips but it is aggravating to me when things don't foam up. It just doesn't feel clean!! How lathery is this one?
