Current Cleansers - SOS

Although my skin has a been a little crazy lately to say the least! I have been enjoying switching up my skincare routine, in particular my cleansers. At the moment I seem to switch between The Body Shop, Super Facialist Una Brennan, Liz Earle and Clarins offerings.

To make this post interesting and not too wordy I've decided to list my likes and dislikes about each product below:

Body Shop Aloe Vera Calming Cleaner (£7.99) - I have been using this cleanser for years! I love it, although its aimed solely for use on the face I usually use this to take my eye makeup off. It does the job perfectly and as its aimed for sensitive skin it never irritates them. It also doesn't sting if it accidentally goes into your eyes too, which is always a plus. No negatives to report with this, I will continue to repurchase for the foreseeable future.

Super Facialist Una Brennan Rose Hydrate Calming Creamy Cleanser (£7.99) - This is a great cleanser that I discovered recently whilst browsing the boots website. Although I only purchased this product due to it being on offer, it has turned out to be a real gem. I also really like the fact that you can use it like a facial wash or alternatively remove it with a muslin cloth. The only negative that I can say is that the rose scent is very intense, so it might be slightly overpowering for some people.

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser (£14.75) - A holy grail skincare product! Although there's not as much hype about this product anymore, I think it's amazing and it's also my go to cleanser when my skin is behaving badly (like now). I can't think of any negatives with this product apart from the price, I wish it was more affordable!

Clarins Cleansing Milk (£18.00) - I think this cleanser is great if you can't for whatever reason wash your face with water afterwards (a must in my skincare routine). It removes makeup quickly and doesn't leave residue on the skin, instead absorbing and leaving the skin feeling squeaky clean. It also has a gorgeous scent and a little goes a long way. Again, I can't really point out any negatives with this product (apart from the price), I'm really enjoying using it.

More importantly, thanks to all these cleansers I've also nearly kicked my face wipe addiction once and for all! Apart from those days I'm just far too lazy  tired of course ;-)
