Skin Cleansers – and a video!


*insert Arnie voice* I’m baaaaaack. 🙂

Erm yes so I’ve been a little absent on the YouTube front. Soz. Work is really busy, kids were on summer holidays, you know how it goes. As I mention in the video – I’m not a ‘pro’ blogger, I still work (hard!) my ‘day job’ and obviously that takes priority when time is tight. Anyway – I’m back!

Instead of the usual favourites I went with my current skin cleanser obsessions. Fancied a change!

The cleansers break down as (all links are in the video description box):

Alpha-H Age Delay – love this – have used for a long time but it’s still as relevant as when it launched. Suitable for all skin types, washes clean away, no residue. I love using this in the morning.

Amanda Lacey Cleansing Pomade – bliss in a jar. Expensive, but if you can, do. Suitable for all skin types, washes away clean, no residue. This is a second cleanse for me in the evenings, after the gunk has mostly gone.

Lush Ultrabland – a great affordable alternative. I’m sorry, but £10 is affordable to me. There are no cleansing balms available for £1.00 (as I was asked today) that will do the same job. Richer than the others, this needs a couple of goes on the flannel to properly clear but there is no residue, just loveliness. Another good A.M. one.

NUDE Perfect Cleanse Omega Cleansing Jelly – brand new this week and bloody lovely. I’ve been using it non-stop since I got my mitts on it. It is light enough to use in the mornings or as a second cleanse in the evening and leaves no residue. All skin types.

Su-Man Purifying Cleansing Oil Gel – Brilliant value considering the quality, the ml in the tube and the amount you actually need to use. Especially considering the plethora of extortionate mineral oil cleansers out there. Suitable for all skin types, two goes of the flannel (if you don’t emulsify- like awkward me) 🙂 Evening for me.

Tatcha One-Step Camellia Cleansing Oil – beautiful, simple, divine quality oil. Suitable for all skins, massages well, two goes of the flannel for this. You can use a tiny amount of this and still get great massage and cleansing action. this gets used both morning and evening, usually when I want speed as it’s ‘ready to go’.

The Organic Pharmacy Carrot Butter Cleanser – beautiful, luxurious, gives a great massage, slightly heavier on the shea butter content than the others so oily/acne faces can absolutely still use – just make sure you follow with some solid flannel action to remove thoroughly. Don’t be scared.

Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser – Rose clay, apricot seed powder and a plethora of gorgeous waxes make this a beautiful exfoliating cleanser without stripping or any harsh skin-damaging ingredients. This is my current first pick for either an AM cleanse or a fresh-as-a-daisy skin ready for retinols etc in the evening second cleanse.

See you tomorrow!

ooh look at me being all organised and shizz.
