Current Skincare | Cleansers #1

current cleansers

Eek, it's been so long guys! I'm sorry I'm not as active on here anymore but I really want to get what I've prewritten posted so here we go!  I’m starting a new series here on the blog with the skincare I’m using in different categories so first up its cleansers! These are the cleansers I was happily using away at while I was at home. It’s not actually all of my cleansers, I do have a few others but I didn’t feel like I used them enough to be able to talk about them fully and there were already about ten here! I didn’t actually realise I had that many on constant rotation but what can I say - I like a clean face and I also like options! I’ll hopefully get an updated one up soon as I have a few different cleansers here with me in Canada and some are old favourites I haven’t used in a while!

The First Cleanse
Are you sick of hearing me talk about this yet? It’s my absolute favourite for a first cleanse as it’s so creamy and gets the majority of my makeup off! I have been using this for years and don’t think I will ever stop! I’m not really into micellar waters which I know most people use hence why there is none in this post but this baby is a firm favourite and constant repurchase for me!

This isn’t in the main picture because I was aiming this post at facial cleansers but I can’t talk about a first cleanse without the best eye makeup remover! If you like to cake your lashes in waterproof mascara and pile on the eye makeup like me then you need this in your life! It’s a bio phase formula and the oil works to break down waterproof eye makeup all while being super gentle, not stinging eyes or leaving a fuzzy film over them! This is a constant repurchase too and one I talk more about here!

oil and balm cleanser review

The Second Cleanse
This is the newest cleanser to my stash and one I talked about originally in this Burt’s Bees post! It’s a 100% natural oil that feels lovely and luxurious when rubbing into the face and I love the scent – it’s not overpowering at all. I find my eyes are a little sensitive to this but nowhere near as much as say the Burt’s Bees Soap Bark and Chamomile cleansing cream. This leaves no oily residue on my face either; it just leaves it feeling really soft and supple and makeup free! Its £16.99 for 117ml!

Another 100% natural product this time in balm form and one I only actually picked up because I was under the threshold for a Cult Beauty GWP one time! Anyway, I’m glad I did put it in my basket because this is so soothing and perfect if my skin is feeling a little stressed or sensitive. It leaves a little residue after wiping off with a facecloth but I don’t mind this and sometimes will pop some extra on and leave overnight if I’ve got a rough patch of skin – it’s a multiuse balm and can even be added to hot water and honey to soothe a sore throat though I haven’t tried that! I love the scent too and my mum always steals this! It’s £12.50 for 50ml.

If I could only pick one (second) cleanser to repurchase this would be it! I have gone through countless jars of this and despite its pretty high price point I will continue to do so because I love it! This is so luxurious and soothing, and I find the scent so relaxing. It removes the rest of my makeup so well and makes my skin feel lovely and soft and ready for the next step in my routine. A jar lasts me ages and I always like to grab it when it’s on offer – I got this 50ml jar in a set of 3 for £38 (and then got 20% off too when M&S did an offer!).

Another luxury pick and one I wouldn’t have thought to try had I not won it in a Cult Beauty Instagram competition! It’s a black oily balm made with Hungarian moor mud and thermal waters that works to draw out impurities. I find it very gentle on my skin and a tiny bit goes a long way with this balm! It comes with a little scoop to get the product out and I then warm it up between my fingers and massage into my face. After removing, I’m left with smooth, clean, hydrated skin! At £48, this isn’t cheap but I will definitely be making a repurchase when I finish this!

I got this in a Cult Beauty GWP and I love it – seriously what is it with me and ridiculously expensive cleansers! The oil feels so silky and almost warms up as I massage it in feeling like I’m getting a mini facial. It smells amazing, gets the last of my makeup off really well and makes my skin feel soft and nourished. It’s also 100% natural and costs £64 for 125ml.

morning cleansers

The Morning Cleanse
This had been on my wishlist for the longest time before it finally came back into stock last year and it quickly became a firm favourite! It contains 5% glycolic acid so helps my skin along in the morning by giving it a gentle exfoliation and leaving it looking a lot brighter! It also contains nourishing oils, glycerin, aloe and hyaluronic acid so doesn’t strip my skin at all and leaves it feeling smooth which I love. It also made it into my Best Beauty Discoveries of 2016! It’s £18 for 135ml and was one of the first things I purchased skincare wise in Canada because I cant bear to be without it - I think it was $24! 

I snagged this just before Christmas in the sales in a set Deciem had on offer (I was buying it for the CAIS but this was a happy surprise!). The first time I used this I was a little put off by the smell (It’s a little like day old cold coffee) but I soon got over it and I reach for it regularly in the morning – it’s not intended to remove makeup! It promises to clean dead skin cells without peeling, remove dirt and clean pores intensely. It also helps remove the skin's natural oils gently to help the skin naturally produce more oils. It targets all forms of build-up, blemishes, congestion and impurities and my skin loves it! Its £21 for 90ml.

I got this little gem in a build your own Latest in Beauty box before Christmas and it’s a beautiful cleansing cream! I actually though my tube was a full size as the sample Latest in Beauty had was so generous! This feels really gentle on the skin and I love that it has rose hip oil in it as its one of my favourite skincare ingredients! It’s got a really gentle rose scent and this leaves my skin feeling really hydrated on days when my skin feels drier than normal. The full size which comes in a tub is £38 for 200ml.

I should also mention that I usually use all three of my morning cleansers with my Foreo Luna for a little bit of a deeper clean and exfoliation and all three work perfectly with it!

  1. I really love the Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil! So good. I've recently started using the Simple cleanser and that is pretty decent too :)

  2. I hope you're settling in well, how is everything? I haven't seen the Nivea one for ages, but it seems like a really good option! I have some trial sizes of the Emma Hardie one so need to get round to using them, at the moment I use the Superdrug hot cloth cleanser. I haven't looked into using a different one for the morning, but will look into the Pixi option :) xx

  4. Oooo I'm really excited for the rest of the series you are doing. I don't tend to have much skincare because I never know what to buy so this is so helpful. The green balm by MOA sounds so interesting. I really want to try something like that

  6. I've used the Emma Hardie balm as my cleanser and as an overnight treatment for years now, it's gorgeous and I can't fault it at all, it lasts ages too so the price isn't too painful!
    Nivea always works well with my skin too if I'm tight on cash and need skincare quick

  10. I used to adore that eye makeup remover until they changed the ingredients and it then made my eyes so sore! I now use the Garnier one which is just as good but doesn't irritate me thankfully. Lovely post.

  14. Ahh so many here that I love or would love to try. The Pixi, Rodial & Emma Hardie are up there as HG cleansers for me I'd say. I quite enjoyed the Burts Bees oil and need to use up a few more so I can get a full size of it xxx

  18. I like the sound of the mud cleanse, the only product I've tried is the Nivea eye makeup remover and I wasn't keen as it was a bit too oily for me!

  19. I would absolutely love to try that Burts Bees cleanser; I have used their "cooling" cream cleanser before and loved it. Especially when you use it with Foreo Luna, it makes your skin feel so alive and refreshed. Great review dear! xx

  21. A girl and skincare lover cannot have enough cleansers, there was a time that I had 6-7 in my bathroom that I used in rotation. I am in need of a new one, I get bored easily and I almost never buy the same cleanser, except if it is brilliant! x

  22. So many great cleansers! That Nivea one sounds interesting, I thought it was just a regular lotion at first lol. The Emma Hardie cleanser is always tempting me on Insta! If only it were easier to come by in the US XD
