Yep, I'm a sucker for trying out new products, lotions and potions. My bathroom shelf resembles a shelf in Boots the chemist, I'll admit.
I have tried most cleansers and for me personally a good cleanser, has to smell nice, be of a good creamy consistency, isn't harsh or too strongly perfumed, and makes my skin clean quickly and effectively, ready for toning and moisturising.
Obviously, there are so many different cleansers available now, its easy not to get a bit bewildered and overwhelmed with them. Here are my top 4 cleansers which I always use -
Best budget buy cleansers - Aldi Hot cloth cleanser, £3.99 - To rival the liz Earle Hot cloth cleanser, (which I love, but lets face it, if a cheaper product does as well and is as luxurious, then I am going to buy the cheaper option.) 85% cheaper than the Liz Earle product. Gorgeous and creamy with a smell very similar, if not identical to the Liz Earle product. Removes make-up very quickly and feels refreshing and soothing. Gimme, gimme gimme! Back on the shelves 30th Nov!
Garnier Micellar water - £3.29, as good as the original cult classic - Bioderma - which I use in my make-up kit. A one step cleanser, no fuss and no rinse. Great for even sensitive skin.
Best mid-range cleansers - Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa cleansing balm - £39 - An indulgent, buttery balm with a heavenly scent. A little goes a long way, (I was very sad to use the last bit.) Leaves your skin clean, hydrated and luminous. Can also be used as a face mask.
Best high end cleanser - Bobbi Brown Extra balm rinse - £50 - Gorgeous, conditioning cleanser with a refreshing, lemony scent, leaves skin feeling smooth and looking radiant, my favourite cleanser, (and I love to use this when I am feeling tired or hungover, as the scent really helps lifts the spirits! pardon the pun.)
