Everyone knows a good cleanser can literally make or break your complexion goals. The problem lies in being bombarded with unlimited amounts of products – and they all promise to deliver. So, which one should you choose? If you are a fan of the K-beauty cleansing routine, you will need an oil and a water-based cleanser. Personally, since the lockdown, I finally got off my butt and made a determined effort with the double-cleanse. Result being, my skin looks A-Mazing (for once). I highly recommend giving it a go! So, without further ado, here is my pick of the ultimate oil and water-based cleansers that tackle a multitude of concerns.
1.For Those Who Don’t Want The Hassle: The Inkey List Oil And Water Double Cleanser, £9.99 (150ml), www.selfridges.com
If you can’t be bothered with the hassle of searching for the right water and oil-based cleanser, this little gem will be just the ticket. This all-singing, all-dancing product ticks all the boxes and delivers results in one foul swoop. Featuring naturally sourced sea buckthorn and sweet almond oil in this awesome formula, you can expect a gentle, nourishing and yet thorough cleanse. Furthermore, moisture is instantly locked in. Panthenol is included, ensuring your complexion is purified to the max without any of that nasty tight after-effect you may otherwise experience. Double cleanse = no issue!
2.For Anyone: Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Starter, £17 (100ml), www.lookfantastic.com
Liz Earle provides the highest grade of highly researched and naturally sourced ingredients. The outcome is your skin looks simply incredible. I had the delight of reviewing Liz Earle’s Hot Cloth Cleanse and Polish several years ago. Let me tell you guys, I have been hooked ever since. If you haven’t tried this and you are on the lookout for a new cleanser, I suggest giving this one a chance. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Skin transformation? I’ll take it!
3. For Acne/Pigmentation: Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel, £35 (100ml), www.oskiaskincare.com
Oh my God, this is one gel cleanser that should NEVER go under anyone’s radar. Called ‘Illuminating Vitamin Melting Cleanser’ this is a nutrient-loaded product that offers unbelievable results. I have been using it religiously and my complexion has never looked better. Oskia is a tad pricier, but it is SO worth it. When you apply, simply add a little water and it melts in deliciously, beginning it’s purifying and nourishing magical wonder. To give you an idea: my tube of Oskia has pretty much run out and this morning I actually cut the end off, just to squeeze out the last bit! Love, love and love some more!
4.For Dry, Mature Skin: BeBaredFaced Mineral Cleansing Balm, £10.99, www.bebarefaced.com
This is another incredible cleanser that I cannot speak of highly enough. Packed with a multitude of skin-loving nutrients such as rose clay minerals, coconut and sweet almond oil, the formula is in a class of its own. Seriously. Expect detoxification, exfoliation and some super-regen powers. When applied to the face with water, this balm becomes an oil that treats your skin to spa-like pampering.
