I’m a bit obsessed with cleansers at the moment, I find I’m drawn to them when I’m out shopping lately but I definitely don’t need any more! It’s getting into colder weather and I’m really relying on cleansers to help keep my skin feeling moisturised and supple. My skin gets very dry and sensitive in the winter months so I need a good cleanser that won’t irritate my skin. Here are some of my top cleanser picks for winter.
Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel – I LOVE this! I think I ‘borrowed ‘ this from my mam but she won’t miss it as she uses cold cream to clean her face… not sure where I got my beauty junkieness from! This has a gorgeous texture it goes on quite thick but loosens to a more oily consistency as you massage it in. It does a great job of removing makeup including waterproof mascara but importantly leaves my skin feeling soft and nourished. This costs €23 for 125ml.
Soap & Glory The Ultimelt Cleanser – I really thought this cleanser would be like the Clarins one of the gel melting type but it’s more like Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. I’ve been using this in the morning as it has a minty feeling to it and leaves skin feeling refreshed and perked up without drying it out. I also love the giant toothpaste like tube. This cleanser is also a big bargain at just €14.
Clarins Extra Comfort Anti Pollution Cleansing Cream – A second favourite from Clarins! This creamy formula is perfect for my winter dry skin. It’s a lightweight cream that does a great job as a light cleanse in the morning to leave skin feeling clean and nourished and fresh. It’s not a tough cleanser for heavy makeup removal I prefer to keep the cleansing balms for that. I have a sample size of this but the full size 200ml is €30.
Have you tried any of these? Let me know if you have any cleanser recommendations for winter!
