These 4 cleansing products have been on rotation in my cleansing routine for the last few weeks. My skin is looking pretty good (much, much better than in the past) and I must say I’m attributing a lot of that to all these products.
There are 2 makeup removing cleansers in this round up however these cleansers are very different from one another. Makeup removing is the first step in my makeup routine each night and is so very important to achieve clean skin! First up I have been using the Garnier Micellar All-in-One Cleansing Water to remove eye and face makeup pretty much everyday. It is so gentle, and honestly acts as effectively as the much more expensive alternative, Bioderma Crealine H2O, my previous favourite micellar water. I love this product because it is so easy to work with – just soak a cotton pad and swipe over the entire face for makeup to just melt away! It’s prefect for days with less makeup, or let’s be honest when I’m feeling like doing the bare minimum skincare at the end of a long day.
The next makeup remover is Shisedo Perfect Cleansing Oil, which I’m enjoying, but truly not loving. It is gentle and does remove my makeup, but it hurts my eyes, and other oils I’ve used in the past did not do that at all. I do like that it leaves my skin feeling clean but never oily or stripped. I just want to be able to use it around my eyes and not get as irritated as I do. It really probably could work for less sensitive people, as I’ve only ready good things, so it’s obviously my flaw and not the product!
My everyday, morning and night cleanser is NeoStrata Oil Free Gel Cleansing, which I truly think is the sole product that is really has been helping my skin. It cleanses my skin so throughly without leaving my ski ever feeling stripped or too dry, like other cleansers can. I love the fact that it contains glycolic acid too! It’s a completely underrated product that I just can’t get enough of. I definitely want to try more products from this line.
Lastly we have the most recent addition to my cleansers, Yes to Tomatoes Daily Pore Scrub, which is not so much a cleanser as it is a treatment, but I thought was fitting for this round up regardless. This is a product I use very rarely, but I do get the desire for a physical exfoliant from time to time so this is a good solution to that need. I love that although the particles are quite large, there are actually very few of them and it is not a harsh scrub at all. Better yet, these are not microbeads!
