BEAUTY: WHY 3 CLEANSERS ARE BETTER THAN ONE
These three fab cleansers today all hail from the USA, now that’s not because we don’t have some amazing British beauty brands because we do, it’s simply to show case three really effective little gems that you may not of tried or heard of yet?
There’s three cleansers here today because each one excels in a different area, which makes that product more suitable for a certain purpose, occasion or simply your mood. So are 3 cleansers better than one?
I find I reach for different cleansers depending on my skins needs, that can be my skin just playing up, environmental effects such as pollution, hot/cold weather, congestion, dull lifeless skin, heavy make up removal, or breakouts.
Firstly the Soy Face Cleanser From fresh, it’s an ultra light water soluble gel formula. I use this when my skin is feeling congested or in other words, it feels like it needs a really good clean. This is a little gem because honestly it’s one of the few cleansers that gives that squeaky clean feeling with out stripping or drying out the skin at all. It’s recommended for all skin types, but because of these properties it would be perfect for sensitive or skin that breaks out on a regular basis (note: confirmed acne should only in my opinion should be treated by a doctor or dermatologist) It applies as a clear gel, lathers slightly and has a light cucumber fragrance. It’s the soy proteins in the form of soybean oil, which contain the skin beneficial amino acids. This item is only fragrance and sulphate free. Soy Face Cleanser From fresh £16.50
Ole Henriksen – Pure Truth Melting Cleanser
This American brand is now easily available in the UK at quite a few locations. Why I love this band is it reminds me of Benefit makeup but in skin care. It’s innovative and problem solving. Cleansing Balms have been all the rage lately and the reason is they feel totally luxurious and they work exceptionally well due to the oils in the balms. So this balm ish cleanser I use on days when I have heavy make up that needs to be removed (especially waterproof eye make up, as most cleansers containing oil will remove waterproof products) Also when my face feels dry and tought especially at this time of year due to the cold weather. The details: This is not quite a balm but rather a gelee that melts on contact with the skin into an oil then once water is added transforms into a creamy milk and rinses clean. Its contains free-radical scavenging L-ascorbic acid, aka vitamin C. Finally it sulphate free,soap free and most importantly paraben free. Ole Henriksen – Pure Truth Melting Cleanser £24.99
Sunday Riley – Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser
This is more my Summer cleanser when my skin is more oily due to the warmer weather. Green french clay is renowned for its cleansing and purifying qualities. This cleanser has a light foaming action which again in the summer months feels light and refreshing.
The use of combining black pepper essential oils is one of the reasons this cleanser so effective as black pepper stimulates the circulation and (thus the lymphatic flow) which enables the green clay to work on a deeper level. Its also contains a delicious cocktail of essential oils including one of my absolute favourites frankincense which is my super oil not only does it work to encourage healthy cell renewal it is also a great mood elevator. Other ingredients include sandalwood and Jasmin which work alongside the green clay soothing and restoring as it deep cleanses. This is also my mood cleanser…. as it contains such a heavenly mix of essential oils it’s the one I turn to for a bit of a luxury pick me up. Sunday Riley – Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser £35.00
So here’s the theory: If I were to prescribe a facial to you right now, your skin type would be assessed, the expected outcome or results and your skins condition at the present moment, would all be taken into account and the appropriate products including cleanser would be chosen. So it makes sense to follow through with that same theory at home. To look at the needs of your skin, and as I’ve mentioned just a few times on this blog “use the correct tool for the job”, ie in this case the most appropriate cleanser.
Is this something you’ve ever considered with your cleansing routine ? Or do you have an awesome cleanser you just cant live with out Id love to hear about it.
