A’Kin Pure Creamy Cleanser & Toner In One

A'Kin Pure Creamy Cleanser & Toner Review

This cleanser is utterly gorgeous. I bought it whilst trawling the internet for sensitive skin products that I could use after beauty shoots (my skin tends to get very sore) and it was an instant hit. I usually use Pai’s cleanser (excellent, see here) when my skin’s feeling fragile but it’s good to be able to write about a variety of brands and price-ranges, I think. Choice is a beautiful thing!

 The A’kin Pure Creamy Cleanser & Toner in One jumped out at me because it claimed to be for normal, dry and sensitive skin yet the “finish” was “fresh, dewy skin”. So a cleanser, in effect, that’s comfortable on skin that’s perhaps a little tight or dry but that doesn’t leave any kind of waxy film or greasy residue. And this cleanser does exactly what it says on the bottle: it’s sumptuously creamy and a joy to use yet it rinses completely clean. I think that pretty much any skin type would get on with this – I can get quite oily in the T-Zone but it seems to leave my skin very well balanced. 

I’m tempted to ignore the “toner” part of the description – I rinse it off and so I can’t imagine there’s much toning going on! But I suppose if you were tissuing it off you might have a different experience… I think it’s a brilliant rinse-off and so that’s how I use it but do let me know if you have this and use it as a cleansing lotion instead…

I’m not overly familiar with A’kin as a brand but I shall most definitely be popping a few more bits on my list after this success – let me know if you have any suggestions!

A’kin’s Cleanser costs £18 for a large bottle (225ml) with free delivery from LookFantastic.com

  1. I use eve Lom in the evening (although soon to try Emma Hardie on your recommendation!). My skin craves something refreshing in the shower in the morning but my red, dry, flaky cheeks (and oily t-zone…so unfair) were not liking my sanctuary foaming face wash. You are my skincare guru (thank you for liquid gold, clarins concealer, hourglass ambient powders, dr hauschka, everything rose-scented etc etc) so have just ordered this as a wash-off morning cleanser. Hello dewy skin!! Also, am hoping it will streamline my travel wash bag as perhaps it could be eveLom-esque with a muslin???? :) LOVE your blog. :)

  2. Pleased you liked it :) i was anxious to hear your verdict on this one as i have been using it for ages
