Current Collection - Cleansers

by - March 05, 2017

So after a long day of wearing make up do you ever get that feeling where you feel so suffocated that you just want to rip your face off? Maybe just me then.. anyways, these are the cleansers I’m currently using to help ease that feeling at the end of the day.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish £15.50 - So this is a firm cult favourite and theres a reason why, it’s one of the the most gentle and fail-safe cleansers out there. The cream texture removes all traces of dirt and grime from the day and due to the chamomile ingredient it soothes the skin as well. I find this cleanser to be a nice one to use in the mornings as the smell (eucalyptus) instantly makes me feel more awake (side-note.. i’m really not a morning person). Liz Earle also bring out limited edition scents throughout the year, my favourite being the Pink Pepper & Mint.. such a gorgeous scent! Another thing to note, at £15.50 this is one of the most affordable cleansers and its now a staple in my routine.

Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser £20.00 - Clarins isn’t usually a brand i would look to when buying a cleanser, however as I received this as part of a gift set for Christmas I thought I would try it out. It is a thick cream cleanser that lathers gently when water is added, but I do find that it can go a bit stiff and mask like if there is not enough water added. Clarins describe it as a cleanser that has targeted ingredients to respect and preserve the skin’s natural moisture balance, but for me I found it was a bit stripping on my skin as I'm more on the dry/combination side, however I imagine it would be more suitable for someone oily/combination skin.

Pixi & Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse £24.00 - So this is a new one for me.. I ordered this last week (£10.00 off thanks to ASOS A-List!) after reading tons of reviews for this cleanser.  So, first things first.. if there is 1 person who I would trust when it comes to skincare it’s Caroline Hirons, she is literally a skincare guru. Caroline has collaborated with Pixi to bring out the double cleanse cleanser. Double cleansing is something that I have always done to an extent, I use a micellar water to remove the bulk of my makeup and then use a cleanser afterwards. The double cleanse cleanser has 2 parts, a balm that turns into an oil & a cream cleanser. I find the balm does a good job at removing the bulk of my makeup and then following on with the cream cleansers my skin is left feeling clean and soft. This product is also none scented which is great for sensitive skin. I have to say so far I’m really impressed with this cleanser, it’s definitely one i’ll be repurchasing.

*So a few things to mention with regards to my skin.. I have combination skin with an oily t-zone and some dry areas on my cheeks and chin. My skin is quite problematic at the moment with breakouts and it can be bit sensitive.

Have you tried any of these cleansers? What are your thoughts?
