Makeup-Removing Cleansers

I’ve mentioned before that I can’t be bothered faffing about with a double cleanse.  To me, it seems a waste of time and product, and it doesn’t work well with my sensitive skin.  Over cleansing leaves my face tight, dry and very unhappy, so I like to use one effective cleanser to remove makeup and clean my skin at the end of the day.  If you’re the same, here are three you might like.

If you prefer a cream cleanser, Skyn Iceland Pure Cloud Hot Cloth Cleanser, £22.50, will remove every speck of makeup while leaving skin soft and smooth.  It’s fragrance free, which I love because it doesn’t sting or burn when used to remove eye makeup.  It comes with a good-quality muslin cloth that is gentle, yet effective.

dhc-cleansing-oil

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, £21.50, removes even the heaviest makeup, including waterproof mascara.  Its formula is simple – mainly olive oil – and it does not contain any fragrance.  It does, however, contain an emulsifier so it rinses away cleanly without leaving any residue behind.  I like it as a hot cloth cleanser.

emma-hardie

If you like a balm-type cleanser, it has to be Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm, £38. I know I mention it a lot, but it really is the best.  Nothing I’ve tried removes makeup better while leaving skin moisturised, nourished and soft.  It comes with the most amazing cleansing cloth – muslin on one side and soft microfibre on the other.  While this product does contain natural fragrance, it’s never bothered my sensitive skin or eyes.  It’s also a bit expensive, but can often be found at sale prices.  I stock up when I see a good discount.
