Skincare Picks: Cleansers

In my 'foundations I regret buying' post I mentioned a really bad breakout that I experienced at the start of this year that only got worse after switching up my skincare and using Clinique anti-blemish solutions (please note that I am not saying that the Clinique products are terrible products, they simply didn't work for me, I know people that it worked wonders for). 

My skin is very oily on my t-zone especially on my nose but I have dry cheeks and the area around my lips, it is very sensitive and gets irritated very easily and I still suffer from mild breakouts. 

The breakouts I suffered from got so bad that my full face was in pain so I was prescribed medication to help clear my skin and I have since found products that work for me and don't cause further breakouts or irritation. 

I use the following products on rotation:

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish
I use this most days morning & night because it is quick and easy to use; you apply this to a dry face and rub into your skin then use the muslin cloth to wipe it off. This melts my makeup away and leaves my skin feeling fresh, it also leaves my skin feeling cool and clear as it contains eucalyptus essential oil so my skin doesn't feel irritated or itchy after I use this. 

REN Clearcalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser
This is similar to the Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser although you pump this onto damp hands and massage into your skin. This helps with any blemishes I have as it is for blemish prone skin, I have also noticed that this helps fade scaring that previous spots have left. To begin I wasn't keen on the smell of this but it has grown on me and I enjoy using this. You can use this and the Liz Earle cleanser on your eyes to remove mascara and eyeliner. 

Origins Checks and Balances 
I use this to deep clean my skin every 2 days I froth it up and massage into my skin. After I use this I feel like my skin can breathe and I love the smell, but I love the smell of all Origins products. Origins is my favourite skincare brand, I have never suffered any breakouts after using any of their products. 

Lush Herbalism 
This is one of the fresh facial cleansers. I don't use this a lot, maybe only 1-2 times a week because the texture is rough compared to the other products so I use this more as an exfoliator. I have previously used the Dark Angels cleanser but I preferred this one because this one will help with spots and calm troubled skin as well as control oil. When I first use this I tend to hold my breath because I hate the smell but once its on my face I can cope. 

Hope you enjoyed, T'raaa x
