The Cream Of The Cleansing Crop

There are some areas of skincare that I am very strict with and will repurchase certain products again and again (I'm looking at you Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair) but cleansers are of those products where I dabble between many and haven’t got a set favourite. If I recall there hasn’t been a cleanser I’ve ever repurchased for that matter? Nope, nada…

The four I have on rotation at the moment are all good, some I like more than others but they all seem to be doing their job.

Una Brennan Superfacialist Rose Calming Creamy Cleanser - The rose scent is what drew me to this initially but I really like the thick and creamy consistency of this cleanser. A word of caution and what I’ve found is that this is not the sort of cleanser that you would remove your makeup with but a post-makeup removal cleanse to leave your skin feeling super clean and soft.

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel- Out of the four this cleanser gets the most love. The gel formula is quite unique and it gives a thorough cleanse with 2 pumps. I feel as though I’m doing some good to my skin when I use this.

Elemis Pro Radiance Creamy Cleanser – The smell of this is divine so it’s no surprise that this is a spa favourite. One pump gives just the right amount of product and it leaves my skin feeling soft. I always reach for this one if I’m having a bad skin day and my skin needs some looking after.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil- I got this as a sample somewhere along the line and I didn’t reach for it for ages. When my skin was really dry due to the cold and bitter weather I gave this a try and expected the oil to nourish my weather-battered skin. It does. Unlike the Una Brennan cleanser, I do use this one to remove my makeup if I’m feeling really lazy. I massage the oil all over my skin and eyes and let the oil get to work in removing every trace of makeup. I then repeat the cleanse to make sure I’ve lifted all the dirt. This is a very comfortable cleanser and it leaves my skin feeling plump and ‘well-fed’.
