Feel like you have the world’s most sensitive skin? Allow us to prescribe you a bar of Fresh Farmacy, our calamine-based cleansing bar. Fresh Farmacy contains chamomile extract to calm, rose and lavender to soothe dry patches and tea tree to clear up any blemishes. The name stems all the way back to the beginning of LUSH, when we held a competition to name the company. Although we (obviously) went with another option, we thought the name appropriate for our problem-solving cleanser.

Amazing for sensitive skin. I have been struggling with acne and dry skin for years, and this is the first cleanser that I actually love. It is affordable considering how long it lasts, but the initial price can be daunting.

While I thought this cleanser would be lovely for my fair, slightly red skin I found it incredibly drying! I also was not fond of the smell.

I didn't like the scent and this was really drying on my scent. I liked the smell in store but once you use it, it kinda changes

This is probably my favorite facial cleanser ( and I have used a lot). I've worked in spas and have tried a plethora of high and low end products and I always come back to this stuff.

Number 1: It's a great price!
Number 2: It works on so many different types of skin. I usually have super oily skin in the summer and a more combo skin in the winter. Works great during both seasons. It even did wonders when my skin became super dry and flaky during my last pregnancy.

It gets ride of makeup ( I don't wear too much), help even skin tone and rids your face of imperfections.


I LOVE MY FRESH FARMACY!!!

I have sensitive and reactive fair skin, so finding a cleanser that is both very gentle and calming but effective at cleaning the skin has been a challenge. I've tried so many different cleansers but most of them were either too strong and burned my skin or to mild and didn't cleanse well. Then I discovered LUSH Fresh Farmacy cleanser. It is a very mild cleanser that is perfect for sensitive skin because it contains calamine, which is a common treatment for chicken pox, skin irritation and big bites, so it works very well at calming down sensitive and reactive skin.

When I started using the cleanser about 4 months ago, I quickly noticed how my redness was calming down and how much more comfortable my skin was after cleansing. It has a mild scent and leaves skin feeling clean and soft. When my skin is feeling particularly sensitive, I leave the lather on my skin for a couple of minutes, kind of like a mask and it quickly calms down the sensitivity.

I recommend this cleanser for any skin type but especially for people with sensitive and reactive skin that is prone to redness and need something to quickly calm the redness and discomfort and still effectively cleanse the skin.

I have been using this soap for just almost 2 months now and I love it. I went into Lush with the intention of picking up some moisturizer and a few other things and ended up leaving with a bit more than I expected. This was one of the unexpected...it works great. I tend to break out fairly frequently and my skin runs from dry to oily. Also, when using other cleansing products my face would sometimes feel tight or a bit sore. I have had neither of these issues while using the Fresh Farmacy. I totally recommend it!!!

I H*A*T*E Lush...all those awesome sales people (at my store, anyways) who are just so keen to help you out and provide suggestions...that actually work. So you go back and more products, and get more suggestions, and buy more products...you get what I'm saying?

I'm a Lush junkie now. *sigh*

So! I have combo oily, cystic acne prone sensitive skin. Yup, lucky me. So! I get dry patches sometimes and overly productive oily zones...and i wear full make up too. I've tried all kinds of make up removes, face washes, cleansers, etc and had either no results - ok results to horrific results...and then I met Lush. The strange thing is...most people I talk to about Lush are Lush junkies too! I was oblivious to this cult for so long!

Now, I use eye makeup remover at the end of my day then put on my shower cap, get in the shower and use Fresh Farmacy to clean off the rest of my make-up. Sometimes I use Coal Face or Ocean Salt Scrub and then Fresh Farmacy again...but my face has been happy, clean, acne reduced and generally easy to be in (it's nasty not being comfy in your own skin :( *sigh*)

I completely, whole heartedly, 100% enthusiastically endorse this product and encourage people to go to their local lush and ask questions! I have never regretted it but my bank account sure has - that would be my only complaint - the prices are a bit steep but I would pay them again...and again...and again!

Hope this helps :)

I haven't been using this for long but already I can see a difference in my skin already, I dont care about the price, its totally worth it, but I wouldn't mind it if it was a little cheaper.

I love this face wash! Not only does it clear your face right up, it also has a nice minty-type smell and doesn't completely dry your face out like most bottled cleansers.

This stuff is AMAZING!

You use it like soap and a little goes along way. I’ve been using it for about two weeks now and my face has already cleared up.

It's great for sensitive skin and makes your face feel super soft afterwards.

I love how it's made from all natural ingredients.

I have used a few of lush's facial cleansers and I am very happy with this company. I definitely recommend this product for people with acne prone skin or want to clear up imperfections.
