Clinique Take The Day Off
I simply cannot live without this product. It is by far the best product for taking off make-up on the market. It melts mascara away like a dream. It emulsifies into a gorgeous cream and after you perform the second cleanse I challenge you to wipe your face on a white towel…I guarantee it will be clean as a whistle. It’s not cheap-cheap, however it is exceedingly good value considering the amount of product and how long it will last. I imagine it is a cheaper version of the all mighty Eve Lom Balm. However I would never suggest taking your make-up off with an £85 cleanser. The horror. In my eyes, cleansers don’t stay on the skin long enough to justify spending a fortune on them. Clinique is affordable enough and does an excellent job.
CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser
This cleanser is perfect if you have oily and sensitive skin. The problem with oily skin is people tend to over cleanse, which then leads to more oil being produced. My all time bug-bear is products for oily skin that strip the skin, just no! This cleanser is cheap (you get a lot of it), non-fragranced, and it also contains hyaluronic acid and ceramides which both have a non-drying effect on the skin. Be warmed however, it’s not great for removing make-up. So using this as a second cleanse will give the best results.
Simple gel face wash
If budget is an issue then washing your face with a Simple face wash will do the job you need. The only thing to be careful of is foaming cleansers. If a cleaner is foaming then it will dry your skin. This gel cleanser doesn’t contain Sodium laureth sulfate so this issue is eradicated here. I would not recommend this for removing make up so find an affordable oil cleanser to remove make-up first.
