Watch my Empties 2020: The Cleansers IGTV here

A reminder that these are my empties, not my all-time favourites, hence the absence of some of my usual favourites.

Products mentioned below are all suitable for pregnancy, breastfeeding and all skins except where highlighted:


Then I Met You Living Cleansing Balm *Product of the Year*: https://bit.ly/3rae1wr
PM first or second cleanse/AM cleanse

Pixi Double Cleanse: http://bit.ly/2Vil4Vk
PM first or second cleanse/AM cleanse

Pestle & Mortar Erase Balm Cleanser: https://bit.ly/2OajV2b
Makeup/SPF removal

Farmacy Green Clean Cleansing Balm: https://bit.ly/3amhTlG
Makeup/SPF removal, not great on a heavy eye

Drunk Elephant Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser: http://bit.ly/3048Bay
Extremely rich. Personally I would avoid if acneic. Definitely needs a cloth to remove.

Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm: https://bit.ly/2HRfV0t
The original and still Top 3. PM first or second cleanse/AM cleanse


Allies of Skin Molecular Silk Amino Hydrating Cleanser: https://bit.ly/37YGuO5
Not great for eye makeup. A skin cleanser for me AKA second cleanse or AM.

Skin cleanser, not suitable for eyes. Great for younger/combo skins.

Skin cleanser. Suitable for all, older skins may enjoy more.

Turns from an oil to a gel to a milk. Skin cleanser.

Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturising Cleanser: https://bit.ly/3bOpPxT
Skin cleanser. Suitable for PM second or first cleanse.



Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser: https://bit.ly/3b5F5Yf
Skin cleanser. Good for combo skins/hormonal zits. Avoid if dry and avoid the eyes.

Biossance Squalane + Antioxidant Cleansing Oil: https://bit.ly/2Txd3w5
First or second cleanse PM/AM. Suited to all skins. Don’t worry about the oil if you’re oily.

Cerave SA Smoothing Cleanser: https://bit.ly/3r726j2
Skin cleanser. Avoid the eyes. Great a few times a week max. Too drying if overused.

Curel Foaming Face Wash: http://bit.ly/3svRz18
Second PM or AM  cleanse. Not traditionally ‘foamy’ at all. Softening and gentle.
