Current Skincare | Cleansers #5

current cleansers ft venn emma hardie dermalogica

Time for a little round up this week of what cleansers are currently on my bathroom shelf (aka the windowsill). It been quite a few months since my last one where I had quite a lot and I have just added a new one in this week too so that’s not here as I obviously need to use it more but this is what’s been on rotation for the last few months! 


Emma Hardie moringa cleansing balm review
safe to say mine doesn't look like this anymore!

I usually don’t include the same cleansers from previous posts in the same series but I love this one so much it gets another mention! The Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm RRP £47 is probably one of my favourite cleansers of all time! I much prefer it as a winter first cleanse than in summer though as it melts in the pot so much hence why it’s still kicking about! Now it’s a bit cooler again this won’t last much longer I’m sure! It’s a luxurious balm and it works beautifully to remove makeup. I love the moringa scent and it really makes cleansing an experience! My skin always feels clean, soft and hydrated after use and Look Fantastic always have it on offer so I’ve never actually paid full price for it! I also talked about it more in this post!

Next up, the Venn Moisture-Balance All-in-One Face Cleanser* RRP £55 (via Face the Future) and let me tell you, this really does what it says on the tin! It is the most gorgeous gel/oil/milk hybrid and perfect for both a first cleanse as it easily removes makeup but I also love using it as a second or morning cleanse as it’s so hydrating and doesn’t leave behind a film! It contains niacinamide, panthenol, centella asiatica and PHA and fruit enzymes to name a few ingredients so is gently exfoliating as well as hydrating. I rub onto dry skin then add water to emulsify and either remove makeup with a wash cloth or rinse of if using as a second/morning cleanse! Pricey but it’s love and I want to try more from this K Beauty brand now!

Technically, this one is finished as it featured in my last empties post but I also technically meant to have this post up sooner than this so it’s here haha. The Inkey List Fulvic Acid Brightening Cleanser* RRP £10.99 was a staple for me all through the summer as a second/morning cleanse and left my skin feeling soft and looking more even. As well as fulvic acid to exfoliate, it has Kakadu plum extract which contains Vitamin C to boost radiance, liquorice root to help deal with hyperpigmentation and aloe vera to soothe skin. My skin always looks fresh and bright after rinsing, it doesn’t feel dry or tight and it’s ready for my next steps. The texture looks like it might be gritty but that isn’t the case at all, it’s smooth! Can’t recommend this enough if you are looking for a budget cleanser with brightening properties!

Onto my minis now and the Cerave Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser RRP £12.50 (for full size) was on my radar as I loved the OG hydrating cleanser so much (read more here). While I like this, it isn’t a patch on the original for me! They both contain ceramides and hyaluronic acid but I have to say I do prefer the non-foaming formula of the hydrating cleanser and I think overall for me it feels more hydrating! Nice to try the cream to foam but I will stick with the hydrating in the future!


The Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser RRP £15.50 (full size) is a long term favourite of mine though it’s been quite a while since I’ve had it! I had a couple of little overnight trips recently so finally opened this as it had been in my stash for a while and I was reminded what a gem it is! A cream cleanser that smells of eucalyptus – one of my favourite scents – it feels instantly relaxing and removes makeup beautifully! It’s much more lightweight than say the Emma Hardie but still manages to feel luxurious too!


Lastly, the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel* RRP £35 (full size) - another old favourite!

A lightweight gel that lathers without drying my skin out and makes my skin feel clean and not stripped at all. I love this as a second or morning cleanse and it leaves my skin feeling calm and hydrated, perfect for my next skincare steps and makeup. Read more here!


So that’s what’s currently open in my collection! Let me know if you have tried any of these and what you thought of them!
