A Couple New Favourites.


It was only a few weeks ago that I wrote about my morning cleansers, but since then two new ones have come in and completely blown all the others out of the water. These two have created my new cleansing routine and are what I've stuck to every morning and night, with the occasional cleansing oil or balm, and my skin is looking a lot brighter and healthier for it.

I'll start with my morning cleanser, the Murad Essential-C Cleanser*. It's a nice, thick gel texture, which does feel a bit stiff after a while so you could add water, making it foam a little, but personally I like really working it into my skin. It has a gorgeous bright, fresh citrus scent that is so perfect for the mornings, I feel like I'm wide awake after using. The cleanser itself is made to help combat against any environmental issues and is full of anti-oxidants, which is great for my oily-combination skin. It feels so gentle and leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft, but balanced and clean too.

The Antipodes Hallelujah Lime and Patchouli Cleanser is my night time cleanser, either alone if I'm not wearing make-up, or after a cleansing oil or balm if I have had some on. It's nice and creamy with a herby, natural scent, and like the Murad leaves my skin feeling really soft and clean without stripping it in the slightest. It's full of oils like carrot and avocado so helps to really nourish my skin, with lime and patchouli that purify. Both of these cleansers just seem to work so well with my skin which is quite sensitive and can irritate easily, but since using them both I've not had any real breakouts, I've just had to deal with scarring from past blemishes. I'm so impressed with them both!

What are your favourite cleansers?

  1. These cleansers both sound beautiful. I'm a huge fan of citrusy skincare products. Do you think the Vitamin C cleanser helps out with brightening the skin?

  15. Lovely picks! I also have sensitive, oily skin, but like to gravitate towards more natural products. I'm currently using the new Kiehl's Calendula Cleanser, which is fab! It foams nicely, but doesn't strip skin at all :)

  16. These sound both great! I would say that the Murad one is the one I'd like to try most, but the other one is also really tempting! ;) xx
