Though I have used more expensive cleansers in this past, I do question whether spending lots on a product that is on my face for mere seconds is really worthwhile. I feel much better buying more affordable cleansers that are lovely to use and clean my skin effectively. These are my current recommendations.
The first is - don't panic - a foaming cleanser! I've been using Naturally Radiant products for a while now and it's one of my favourite own brand ranges. Foaming cleansers have a rather negative reputation because they tend to contain harsh ingredients that strip the skin of moisture. After a quick scan of the ingredients list in store, I was surprised the Naturally Radiant Refreshing Complete Cleanser didn't contain SLS so I decided to give it a try. I use a couple of pumps, and afterwards my oily skin feels thoroughly cleansed, but not overly tight or dry. I feel this cleanser would be suitable for most skin types, except those with very dry skin. Next is the Good Things Manuka Honey Creamy Cleanser. I really like the Good Things range because their products are all formulated to be gentle, effective, and affordable. The cleanser is a thick cream, which feels lovely on the skin when I take the time to really massage it in. It can be used to remove makeup, which I do do sometimes, but I use it most as a second step cleanse. My favourite thing about this product is the scent, if you like honey and sweet fragrances I'm sure you will like this too! Lastly is the Una Brennan Rose Hydrate Calming Creamy Cleanser. It's actually quite similar to the Good Things cleanser in terms of texture and delicious scent. It also can be used as a first step, second step cleanse, or both.
