BEAUTY | The Cleansers

I'll hold my hands up and be the first to admit that when it comes to a skincare rountine I'm not the most consistent shall we say. I'll be good for about a month, then I get lazy and the moisturisers and face masks go out the window - of course then I'm complaining about not having perfect skin! But one thing I am vigilant with is cleansing...I'm proud to say the days of face wipes are long gone! I keep it all very simple, these are my favourite products to wash the day (and night) away.

REN Hot Cloth Cleanser Review, Superfacialist Vitamin C Cleansing Oil Review, Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser Review

As you can see hot cloth cleansers are a must for me in both the AM and PM, my long term favourite for the morning is the REN Rosa Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser. It's light and creamy and just leaves my face feeling really clean and moisturised. The rose scent is so dreamy too! I just apply this to dry skin with my fingers and rinse off with warm water and a flannel (seriously, does anyone ever bother with the little muslin thing these cleansers come with?)

I always double cleanse at night, even if I'm not wearing make up or haven't left the house as I think it's just a good habit to get into. I start with *deep breath* the Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Skin Renew Cleansing Oil. Amazing product, but what a long name! I love this so much this is in fact my second bottle of the stuff. It feels lovely to massage in and it's great at removing even the most stubborn eye make up without stinging. The citrusy scent may take a little getting used to for some (it does remind me a little of kitchen cleaning products!) but because I love it so much I've grown to adore the scent too. A little goes a very long way with this stuff as well so it's a bargain in my eyes.

Next is a cult product that I only tried for the first time this year and I've definitely been missing out! The Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is a little thicker in consistency compared to the REN one which is why I use it in the evening as I find it's better at taking off make up. It has this kind of herbal scent that I love too, I think it's really unique! I apply this using my Origins Facial Cleansing Brush* which is a really nifty little tool to really help buff away dead skin cells. I'm a bit wary of chemical exfoliators so prefer manual ones and this is great at getting the job done - saves time too because you're not having to faff around with different scrubs and things!

What are your favourite cleansers? I would love some morning recommendations as my REN one is running out!

  1. I love the Una Brennan stuff but the bottle enrages me so I have to decant it! It is so gorgeous though and I love the orangey scent! xxx

  2. I've been using cleansing oils a lot more recently, I never used to like them but I have totally been converted, which is good as I can use up some of the products in my stash xx

  10. I really like the REN cleanser, and Cleanse & Polish has been a favourite of mine for ages now, it's so good! I'm using Nip + Fab's Glycolic Cleansing Fix in the morning atm - I don't usually like foaming cleansers but this one seems to be sorting out my spots quite nicely xx

  12. I've just been using a Neutrogena grapfruit cleanser which has actually been doing the job but I think I might swap it out for something new once it's all finished.


    Love your blog by the way! x
