My skincare routine is all pretty low maintenance, but I do enjoy a good double cleanse! On my bathroom sink sits all kinds of cleansing picks, from oils to milks to creams… I like some variation so I can work with how my skin is feeling that day.
I have five favourites on rotation at the moment, and they’re all longtime loves of mine that I try to never be without. So let me introduce them…
Oskia Renaissance Cleanser; Yup, I own a brilliant golden tube – how cool?!
I actually stashed this in my bathroom cabinet to try another cleanser and forgot about it for a few weeks. When I finally reached for it again, I was mesmerised at how effortless it made makeup removal – it really was one of those “how did I ever let you go!?” moments!
This silky gel/balm has such an intriguing formula, it feels almost like a super soft, lightweight balm when massaged in to the skin. You can feel even the most budgeproof mascara melting away!
Once water is added, it sweeps away like a milk, leaving the skin supple and soft and oh so purified. I’m a huge fan.
Glossier Milk Jelly Cleanser; So this little lovely is the real reason why my Oskia fave was retired to a drawer! I do really love this jelly-like cleanser, it feels lovely on the skin and really works away impurities without much work from me, but I think the Oskia cleanser is still number one for me.
Saying that, they are quite similar in texture, and I’d recommend Glossier’s pick to anyone looking for an effective, skin-nourishing treat.
Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Milk; I was sent this bottle to try by the brand and, although I’m the biggest Bobbi fan, I wasn’t expecting much from this. I’m not sure why!
That was silly of me, because this is my every day cleanser for removing makeup in a flash. It feels so cool and quenching on the skin, so it’s a dream to use after a long day.
Makeup is swept away, skin looks radiant and clear… it’s a must have!
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser; This little pick seems to be a cult favourite for those in the know, and I totally get why! The cleansing gel washes away makeup and leaves the complexion with that perfectly purified, but never stripped feeling. I love using this after a night out as I find it’s very deep cleansing, and I’ll use it again in the morning just to ensure my skin is as purified as can be. Highly recommend!
Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Oil; You really can’t go wrong with a cleansing oil, and this Aesop lovely has to be my favourite find. It’s light but effective, working to wipe away the day and leaving the skin feeling so smooth and clean.
I usually use this when my skin is a little congested, as those parsley seed properties work wonders on my complexion!
I’m a cleanser obsessive! Have you tried any of these?
