My Top 5 Cleansers!

Hi Guys, 

Today I have a slightly different post as I don't usually post about skincare! But I'm taking part in the 2014 Blogger Challenge! Even though I may of missed the first topic due to not having much time at the start of this month... oops... Then the fact that I've missed this topic by over a week due to working and college non stop, my blog has had to take a back seat. So I thought I'd share this post anyway seeing as I was going to, anyway Topic 2 is all about Skincare! So I thought why not show you these cleansers I've been loving and four out of five are great for this time of year too! 

I've just realized too, every single Cleanser in this is high end... But I do find the more you pay for it, the longer it lasts and the better it works. It can take me from six months to a year to get through a bottle of one of these cleansers depending which one it is! So they really do work out cheaper than cheaper Cleansers in the long run!

1) Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser - £18 HERE
This is the first ever proper cleanser I tried, its like a cream that you massage all over your face, then add water and it foams up and washes off. It does take a bit of effort on a tired night but it really cleans. Foaming Cleansers are always a bit hit and miss as some people find they strip your skin too much, I do find though its rather quick and leaves my skin feeling nice and clean afterwards. 

2) Clarins Water Comfort One Step Cleanser - £19.50 HERE
I did a review of this a few months back - HERE, This could be my new lazy night favorite cleanser, I suck at taking my make up off at night and this is brilliant! Stick it on a cotton pad and just wipe away all your make up, Ill use it to take off the bulk of my eye make up too and then eye make up remover for my mascara.You could probably take all your make up off with just this though. 

3) Clarins Cleansing Milk with Alpine Herbs - £18 HERE
This is a repurchase, as my first bottle lasted me a year, give or take! I've just ran out and I love it too much not to have another bottle. It's another Lazy night cleanser, but I find its more moisturizing than the one step cleanser, but it is a lot thicker obviously as its a milk so It's bound to be. Again its just another one to stick on a cotton pads and wipe away my make up with. 

4) Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Foaming Cleanser / Purifying Mask - £22 HERE
This is the newest of the bunch for me, its also the first ever cleanser I've come across that's also a mask, I quite like this idea, I've not tested it out much but seeing as my skin is quite combination sometimes this cleanser is great, its like the Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser as well its foaming but it makes a great mask and leaves my skin feeling great afterwards.

5) Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm - £21 HERE
This is one of the most expensive of the bunch and I'd say the most luxurious, This one is rather raved about, after hearing a model recommends had tried it, I had to pick it up. It baffled me at first as its like a hard I don't even know, solid balm. Which then melts in the heat of your hands into an oil, which melts away your make up and leaves your skin feeling so soft, Its defiantly more of a night time cleansers unlike the rest.

I hope you enjoyed this post, its a little different for me to be posting skincare, Let me know if you like it though as I might do more!

  1. I'm nearly all out of one of my current cleanser, (have more stashed away) surely an excuse to buy a new cleanser I will defiantly be trying out one of these

  2. I really want to try the clinique balm :) the Emma hardie balm is my favourite cleanser x

  3. I've never tried a high end cleanser but they do sound worth a bit of a splurge!

  4. These sound really good! Going to have to start saving!x

  5. Great post! I love clarins and I've always wanted to try the clinique balm! :) x
