Favourite Cleansers/Toners

So as you may or may not be aware, my skin is going through a "rough patch" at the moment and it's quite hard to buy products, especially cleansers as these are directly used onto the skin and can be the major cause of irritant. I've been trying a few out and ruled a few automatically out but I've found some that even through my dry/oily/normal phases, they all seem to work as described!

Firstly I just want to say how amazing, although I'm sure you all already know, the Bioderma cleanser is. I got the Sensibio version which I've heard isn't for a lot of people. I was a bit apprehensive using this instead of face wipes but once I gave it a go, my opinion soon changed! It is the best cleanser I've tried and is quite cheap in comparison to some other ones I've tried in the past. You really don't need much at all and a few drops goes a long way. I got mine on Ebay from here.

I'm a major fan of Clinique products. The 3 in these pictures were from the 3 Step Skincare set, purchased about 2 years ago! It just shows how long they've lasted. Mine are for very dry/dry skin type. I use them in order when possible (Facial Soap, Toner then Moisturiser), but the majority of the time I do mix and match between my others. They are quite pricey, but it's the only thing that always works for me. I highly recommend them if you're having serious skin problems and they do different ranges depending on your skin type.

The Nivea cleansers are new to my collection but make me have that fresh faced feeling that I love! I love scrubs on my face but unfortunately with having dry skin, I can't really use them very often as it makes my skin worse!

I love The Body Shop facial cleansing gel too for the fresh faced feeling and the smell is quite nice. I got it when The Body Shop had a 50% sale at Christmas but normally it RRP at £4.00 here.

What are your favourite cleansers? Any recommendations?

    Have you tried Liz Earles cleanse and polish ? x

  2. I've not, it's next on my list but I'm a bit wary with my skin. Once my dermatitis has cleared up I'll definitely try it! Do you recommend it? x

  3. I've been wanting to try BIoderma forever! I think I am just going to bite the bullet & buy it :)

  4. Definitely do it! It's worth the money. Try ebay. You won't regret it :) x
