Three Top Notch Cleansers You Should Try



If there's one thing I'm very fussy about it's skincare. I have extremely temperamental, and occasionally sensitive skin, so putting together a skincare routine has been years of trial and error. I've tried a lot of different skincare over the last year or so and I've found some real winners. These are three cleansers that I always end up going back to, no matter how many times I stray and although they're all very different, they all get the job done exceedingly well.

1. Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish - This was one of the first cleansers I tried when I was getting into skincare. It has a massive following and I read somewhere that one of these bottles is sold every 20 seconds worldwide so it's definitely a people pleaser. This is a cream cleanser that has a very thick consistency and has mainly plant-based ingredients. Basically, it smells like a spa - seriously. This is a hot cloth cleanser, so it comes with a little muslin cloth that you run under hot water and then use to remove the cleanser. It does say that you can use this to remove face and eye makeup but I'll generally use this as a second cleanse in the evening or to cleanse in the morning. This is a great one if you're just getting into skincare because it's budget-friendly and does what it says on the tin!

2. Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel - The above bottle of this cleanser is probably my third one. Needless to say, I'm a fan. I heard about this for ages before I decided to try it. It was in every beauty/skincare blogger's favourites for months and eventually my curiosity got the better of me. Although this is marketed as a gel cleanser, I would say the texture is a lot more akin to an oil. This is another cleanser that I'll use as a second cleanse in the evening or to cleanse in the morning, because I feel like this is one of those cleansers that really nourishes the skin, so I prefer to have all my makeup off by then. Of all the cleansers I've used as of yet, this was the one that I noticed the biggest difference in my skin with. It was the softest it's been in years and everything was definitely looking clearer than usual. The only downside is that it is on the pricier side but considering the massive difference I see in my skin when I use this, it's a sacrifice I am (mostly) happy to make.

3. Clinique Take the Day off Cleansing Balm - This wins the title of my most repurchased skincare product ever. This was another one I'd heard a lot about and it came with the Caroline Hirons seal of approval - it was obviously going to happen. It's basically a very plain, unscented, no frills balm cleanser. I know a lot of people are wary of cleansing balms and oils, particularly if they have oily skin, but don't be put off by the formula. Cleansing balms and oils are some of the best ways to get makeup and dirt off your face and won't make your skin any oilier. This cleanser is no exception, it breaks makeup down better than any cleanser I've used and is perfect for a first cleanse in the evening. I'm currently on what I think is my fifth pot - it's good stuff.


There you have it, those are three of my favourite cleansers. They're all pretty different and have varying formulas but they all get the job done - and pretty nicely as well. So if you're looking for a cleanser, these ones get a thumbs up from me!

  2. I've read such amazing things about all of these cleansers, but am yet to try any of them! The only annoying thing about them is their price tag, and I personally can't really see myself using a cloth in my cleansing routine. I think I'd like to try the Clinique offering the most out of these three :) x

    1. I know the Clinique cleanser is on the pricier side too, but I think it's definitely one worth trying! xo

  3. I'm the exact same as you - temperamental, sensitive skin. It's so hard to find a great cleanser, and while I've tried lots of top-notch, top price point cleansers, for some reason I always go back to the Lush 9 to 5 Cleanser. Creamy cleansers just love my skin. :)

    I've heard great things about Oskia though!

    1. I've never tried the Lush 9 to 5 cleanser, I'll put that on my list of cleansers to try! Oskia really does seem like a great brand, I definitely want to try some more of their products! xo
