The Pre-Cleanse: Adding to the Ritual

skincare product review

Depending on your budget this oil Super Facialist Neroli Oil could either be a luxurious addition to your bathtime cleansing ritual or a “reserve” product for when you need extra makeup-removing power but don’t want to use up your very expensive balms. For those who would usually spend around five or ten pounds on a cleanser, a pre-cleanse oil costing nearly … Read More

Weleda Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion Review

skincare review

Another gorgeously gentle cleanser to add to my ever-growing collection. This one’s from Weleda – the Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion for Sensitive Skin. It’s incredibly soft yet does a good job of removing makeup – though you’ll want a dedicated eye makeup remover if you’re wearing lots of mascara or kohl. One of the brilliant things about this cleanser is the … Read More

Cleansing Pads: This Works and JASON

beauty face cleanser

You probably know by now that I don’t champion the use of face wipes for a proper, makeup-removing cleanse, but I do think that some of these disposable what-nots have their place in the beauty cabinet. For quick, emergency cleansing or for makeup removal on-the-go, they are really useful and if you ever want to just change part of your … Read More

The New Balm in Town: Merumaya

face cleanser review

Instant love for this gorgeous cleansing balm from Merumaya. Not a brand that I’ve heard much about, but I’ll definitely be having a go with a few of their other products. The cleansing balm is rich and silky and great for massaging in to the skin, but it turns milky when you add water and it rinses off clean. I think … Read More

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 … Read More

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm Review

beauty review

I do love a good cleanser – a proper, massage-it-in, take-it-off-with-a-cloth kind of cleanser. If I have a full face of makeup (and actually, even if i don’t) I like to spend a good while massaging, cleansing and rinsing thoroughly, usually repeating the process to make sure that I’ve got all of that deep-seated grime and oil. Cleansing balms and … Read More

The Superfacialist Double Cleanse

Una Brennan Superfacialist Review

 I love this double-cleanse routine from Una Brennan, super facialist. What a superb idea! It’s nothing new, of course, the idea of double-cleansing – most of you probably do it without realising. What I love about this double-cleanse is that it’s all laid out for you. Use the oil, then use the creamy cleanser. Really, I think that they should be sold … Read More

Spa Fabulous Cleanse & Glow

spa fabulous cleanse glow

I have been testing out Neena Trehan’s Cleanse & Glow cleanser. It’s lovely. I had no idea what to expect from it as I’d never heard anyone talk about it or seen any reviews, but I quite like testing something “blind”, so to speak. There are no preconceptions or little niggles that other people might have had about a product. … Read More

Watch any of my skincare videos and you’re almost guaranteed to see it mentioned; it’s one of my staple beauty products and a very effective, gentle face cleanser. You can read more of my reviews and mentions by trawling through these posts, but if you want to buy it, you … Read More
