  • Everyday Cleansers

    January and cleansers go together – it’s all about a clean slate and often a resolution of never again falling asleep in our make-up. We have very different skin textures and temperaments, so here are our best cleansers for combination and sensitive skin. One thing we agree on is our cleansers have to be easy to use, fuss-free and as hard-working as possible. 

    Petro & Laura
    Moor Cream Cleanser
    Omorovicza£49

    If you’re looking for a gentle daily deep-pore skin detox, this is the cleanser for you. It promises to make your skin feel like you’ve just had a facial – every time. The mud-like, minty cream formula actively dissolves dirt and make-up, leaving skin smooth, glowing and super-fresh. It combines the purifying, antibacterial powers of mineral-rich Hungarian moor mud with lavender, peppermint and eucalyptus essential oils to rejuvenate, cool and reduce bacteria. It’s perfect for city skin and can be used on sensitive and dry skin daily, because it never leaves your skin feeling tight. For an instant glow, massage a pea-size amount into damp skin before rinsing off. Pack it on a long flight for instant skin relief; use it after a busy day at work to detox the mind; or simply wake up your skin in the morning.

     

    Purifying Cream Cleanser
    Skin Laundry£20

    I found a sample of Skin Laundry Purifying Cream Cleanser in my Liberty advent calendar and didn’t know the brand when I first tried it. First launched in California, Skin Laundry is known for its quick, accessible laser and light treatments for an array of skin problems, as well as a range of skincare products for healthy, glowing skin. This soap- and sulphate-free 3-in-1 formula cleanses and hydrates dry skin as it melts away dirt, make-up and impurities. I love a cleanser that I can use in the shower to take off my make-up, including eye make-up, without any irritation, and this one leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh but not dry. Simply apply a small amount of Skin Laundry Skin Purifying Cream Cleanser onto damp skin and massage for 30-60 seconds. Remove with a washcloth or rinse with warm water and pat dry.

    Micellar Cleansing Oil
    Nuxe£15.50

    I picked this up at a press day and I have to admit it sat in my cupboard for a long time. Until I found myself wearing the stubbornest mascara known to man, and I thought I would try it. Now I am on my second bottle and I totally love it. It’s a super-gentle, oil-based cleanser with rose petal extract; it can remove any make-up and is perfect for sensitive skin. Massage a tiny amount onto dry skin and rinse off with a muslin face cloth for skin-smoothing results. I would recommend it a hundred times over.

    Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser
    Sunday Riley£35

    I wouldn’t normally opt for a clay cleanser – as someone with naturally flaky skin I find them too drying. However, I’m a Sunday Riley fan so I was keen to try her version. After using it I noticed my pores visibly tightening; it managed to get rid of excess oil and impurities without stripping my skin of moisture. It was refreshing and tingling, but didn’t cause a reaction. My skin also appeared instantly brighter. I would use it every other day in the winter when I need a thorough cleanse due to seasonal dry skin, but every day in the summer when my skin is naturally more oily.
