But a cleanser is a cleanser right? Wrong. Well I would certainly beg to differ. I know that choosing the right cleanser for your skins needs can be overwhelming but i’ve taken the liberty of rounding up some of the best. If you have no time for dirty looks, then meet the greatest cleansers of all time..of ALL time.
RMS Raw Coconut Cream – All skin types
Why it’s so great: I’ll be honest, I only bought this because I like the smell of coconuts but after I tried I realised that occasionally frivolous whims pay off. It looks and feels like normal coconut oil but RMS is special. It’s extracted with a technique that keeps the lauric acid intact..lauric acid is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-microbal and is also found in human breast milk. Don’t be repelled just yet, this is the perfect all rounder cleanser for every skin type as it will leave your skin soft, shine free as well as making spots a thing of the past. Tip: Massage into face and neck for five minutes then leave it on for half an hour before removing with a warm damp wash cloth. £13 available here.
Janmarini Bioglycolic Cleansing Gel – Uneven texture/problem skin
Why it’s so great: This cleanser is a proper cosmoceutical, one which my mum has been using for years. It contains glycolic acid which will constantly but gently exfoliate the skin so it’s particularly good for problematic or more mature types. £27 Available here.
Suki Face exfoliator – All skin types
Why it’s so great: This product is perfect if you prefer something more botanical but effective nontheless. It’s replete with natural ingredients and contains a sugar and rice powder formula that melts into a foamy lather and rinses clean. The scent is divine as it contains lavender, orange and calendula extracts and to top it all off, it’s 100% vegan. £10 Available here.
Why it’s so great: A friend with oily skin loves the deep clean feel she gets from this glycolic cleanser. She claims her face appears less oily each day as it get’s rid of both make up and impurities. It’s also very good for ageing or more mature skin types as it really minimises pores, improves texture and tone and diminishes acne scars. Around £20 call 0121 445 6644 for more information.
Roche Posay Torelaine Dermo Cleanser – Sensitive/dry/combination skin
Why it’s so great: A little goes a long way with this sensitive skin cleanser. It foams beautifully and is more effective than most products in a similar or even higher price range. It’s great for people with combination skin who are prone to shiny areas and dry spots because it’s non irritating and will calm that redness right down. Despite it’s well mannered nature, it will remove make up thoroughly without leaving your skin feeling tight. £11 available here.
Bio Elements Sensitive Skin Cleanser
Why it’s so great: For people with dry or sensitive skin, this cleanser offers gentle cleansing with absolutely no irritation and it won’t leave any residue behind. The olive oil base keeps skin soft and clean with a great hydrated glow whilst the lightly foaming cleanser is light but effective enough at removing bacteria and make up. Bonus – it’s light enough to remove eye make up. Downside – it’s hard to find in the UK but can easily be found on Ebay.
