Mama Mio Clean SlateI’ve got a new secret weapon in my make-up bag: Clean Slate cleanser by Mama Mio. I haven’t been asked to review it or sent the product free of charge: I paid £22.50 of my hard earned cash for it, which may sound on the pricey side for a face wash, but Oh. My. Goodness. This stuff is amazing. So I’m writing about it because I thought you might like to know too.

I have never, ever, come across a skincare product that has actually delivered visible results instantly, but this one did. Here’s a picture of my clear (un make-upped) blemish free skin, two weeks in, to prove it.

I’m not quite sure how they’ve done it: it contains a mix of high protein organic aloe leaf juice with probiotics and essential oils and omegas, and my skin felt more alive after the very first use. Even Misery Guts, who normally wouldn’t notice if I wore a paper bag over my head, commented on how good my skin looked just a day after I first used it.

It’s soap-free so your skin’s not left feeling tight, and it smells divine – sandalwoody, as you might after a professional facial. Misery Guts says the bottle looks like head lice ointment, but I say don’t judge a book by its cover. I came across it at my local Champneys shop (John Lewis and Debenhams are also stockists, and you can find it online) where I got a free taster of Mama Mio’s Mighty Moisture moisturiser to go with it, and I’ve been using the two together for two weeks now.

I think we’ll be together for life.
