The battle of the cleansers


The battle of the cleansers

It’s a new year, and January seems to be the time when everyone looks to better themselves, whether it’s the gym, eating, hobbies, or in this instance, skin care.

Everyone is stockpiling the skincare, attempting to kick start the year positively, creating a skincare routine that we all try to continue, at least past January, but will probably decrease as our other new year’s resolutions often do.

Cleansers are one product that even if you do decide to minimize your routine, you can always count on to hydrate and clean your skin.

Here are 5 cleansers that, whilst you’re on your skincare hype should try, you never know you might still be using it next year!

  1. Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish £15.50

If you’re looking for a really deep cleanse, we recommend the Cleanse and Polish! This product can even be purchased as a kit with the muslin clothes or separately.

Run a hot tap over the muslin cloth and wipe the cleanser off. The hot cloth steams your face and leaves your skin feeling really clean like you’ve had a deep facial – super relaxing!

  1. Soap and Glory Hot Cloth Cleanser. £10

Similarly to Liz Earle, the Soap and Glory hot cloth cleanser works in the same manner, however, it is more affordable. We would definitely recommend trying out Soap and Glory’s skin care range, especially their Purifying Foam Cleanser. The face masks that they do are also a great purchase!

  1. Clinique take the day off Cleansing Balm £25

A beauty world favourite is up next, it has even mentioned by the likes of Zoella (!), is the Clinique ‘take the day off’ cleansing balm. We recommend using a micellar water beforehand. It’s the perfect, easy-to-use balm which pulls any excess gunk out of your skin! Its perfect for any sensitive skin.

It’s a fairly large pot and is worth the price in our opinion! But if you fancy just trying it, you can grab a smaller version for around £9 off of Asos and Look Fantastic! Also perfect for travelling.

  1. Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water


If you’re looking for a good old classic, then this one is the one for you. The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water is nice and cheap, always on offer, and will never fail you! It is perfect to use as a base before using any balms to get the majority of your makeup off.

Garnier now do a few variations which is perfect for all different skin types!

  1. Elemis Pro Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm £43

Again, similarly to beauty competitors Clinique, Elemis have created their own version of a balm which is the Elemis Pro Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm. All you need to do is rub the balm over your skin (it can be used to remove make up, but naturally it is a bit messy doing that), leave to enrich the skin for a minute and then remove the balm which a hot, damp muslin. The scent and texture of this balm is truly luxurious which is reflected in the price – however, your skin will reap all the benefits!
