The Cleansing Rotation


Cleansers are my favourite part of my skincare routine. I love coming home after a long day at work and just taking off my make-up and being left with super soft and cleansed skin. I have a few cleansers on rotation, which is good according to Caroline Hirons because everyone should have a skincare wardrobe. Lets start off with morning, sometimes depending on how my skin is feeling and looking, I will opt for the REN Rosa Centifolia Gel Cleanser - two pumps of this massaged into the skin really wakes me up and went water is added, it turns into a milk, this isn't great for removing make-up but for first thing in the morning, it's perfect. If my skin is feeling lacklustre and I need a pick-me-up, the REN Micro Polish Cleanser is a recent addition but an absolute favourite and this really works, my skin looks brighter instantly after using this. The cleanser is a grainy texture which foams up when water is added, I work this into my skin for a few minutes and the grains exfoliate any dead skin away, it also smells lovely. A teen favourite has to be the Neutrogena Spot Stress Control Cleanser, I have used this for as long as I can remember, I've never been one for problem skin *touch wood* but whenever my skin is playing up, I strip back my skincare routine and go back to this. It helps reduce the size of blemishes and they've gone within a week or so. It's slightly menthol and really helps calm those pesky spots brewing! And of course, hydration! The Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm nourishes my skin whilst removing the dregs of my remaining make-up after my first cleanse, this cleanses my skin perfectly and leaves it feeling soft and supple and if I want to add a bit of natural exfoliation, a pinch of the Emma Hardie Rosehip Seeds added to the balm gets off the dead skin and I'm left with nourished, exfoliated skin.

  6. Neutrogena is quite underrated in the world of skincare, I've used their 2-in-1 wash/mask cleanser for ages and absolutely love it! I do agree with the skincare wardrobe thing though so maybe I need to venture out a little more! xx
