Three Cleansers That Always Do The Job
I'm a bit of a skincare nut and there's nothing I love more than trying new products - although I'm not such a fan of skin breakouts from products I don't get on with.
But I often find the worst products to find are cleansers because there are so many rubbish ones out there (ergh foaming) that it's hard to find something that really stands out from the crowd. First off, it should be no surprise that the Una Brennan Super Facialist Cleansing Oil is up there because I've been using it consistently for the past two years. It's my go to for removing my makeup but even when I don't have makeup on, I use it to cleanse. Plus it smells of oranges which is possibly one of my favourite scents ever.
Cleansers are very much a thing that often don't do that much - products that tend to pack a punch are often serums or oils, but not so much cleansers. But this Antipodes Juliet Skin-Brightening Cleanser* has kind of proved my own apprehension wrong. Just to fully disclose, I was sent this however I've not been paid to review it or anything. But it's really good. When I first used it, I was slightly nervous because it almost looked like it was starting to lather - it was merely emulsifying. But the best part is is that it smells like green apples. The worst part is that it's brown - not so appealing. Nevertheless, it's really good. I apply this all over, making sure to really work it into my skin and any blemishes before washing it off with a flannel. My skin feels clean and fresh and I've definitely noticed an improvement in skin brightness. Really good - especially if you suffer from dull, lacklustre skin. Or if you just like the smell of green apples.
As I often do suffer with sensitive skin days, I often needs a gentle cleanser on hand so this Grace Gentle Cream Cleanser* is perfect. It reminds me a bit of cold cream in that it's quite thick and weird to use - but it's really gentle and leaves my skin feeling soft and clean without feeling stripped. Not great if you do have quite oily skin or if you want a multi-use product to also take off your makeup as it's definitely more of a second cleanse type product.
