Meet Your Match - 5 Treatment Cleansers

27 Feb 2017 - Share →

As you know I'm a big advocate of thorough cleansing, it's one of the most important things you can do to get and maintain good skin. There are lots of different types and textures out there, from oils and balms that are great for a really good facial massage to micellar waters that are super-speedy to use (so no excuse for sleeping in makeup!).

I don't believe you need to spend big money on makeup removing and cleansing, it's more about finding something that you like using and that works for your particular skin type. Having said that, I love trying new things (from all price points) to keep up to speed on what's new in the world of cleansing  - here are 5 new arrivals at the #HouseofEldridge…

1. The mud cleanser - Omorovicza Moor Cream Cleanser
Good for all skin types (except sensitive) 

I was given some preview samples of this to try last year. I love the brand's Deep Cleansing Mask and I was looking forward to testing this new cleanser as it uses the same Hungarian moor mud which I find works really well for my oily/combination skin. It has quite a thick, creamy texture (but rinses off well with water and a cloth) and smells of eucalyptus and camphor - so much so that when you use it, you can breathe easier! Good if you're still feeling the effects of the winter weather. Eucalyptus also has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, so good for spot prone skin (although I'd say avoid altogether if you have sensitive/reactive skin). It doubles up as a treatment mask, I like to leave it on while I brush my teeth as a mini morning mask a couple of times a week.
Available here - and I have an exclusive 20% discount code for you to use - LISAMUD20 until the 15th March 11.59pm GMT (Available here.)

If you want a similar purifying cleanser on the high street, we like Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser. It contains charcoal plus menthol so leaves skin with a similar refreshed, skin-tingly feeling. Available here.

2. The water - EKIA Cleansing Water
Good for speedy cleansing on all skin types
I love cleansing waters for myself and always carry some in my kit for taking off makeup quickly (and gently) between shots. This new discovery recently landed at the #HouseofEldridge just as I was looking for a more natural alternative to Bioderma. The formula is certified organic (99.7% of the ingredients are natural origin, 68% from organic farming) so a good option if you like incorporating natural and organic products into your skincare regime. I find it removes all makeup (including eye makeup) well, great for on-the-go cleansing or if you have a late night and can’t face a full ‘at the sink’ cleanse.
Available here - I've also noticed that the brand is stocked at lots of good health shops (like Holland & Barrett in the UK).

3. The milk - Susanne Kaufmann Cleansing Milk
Good for dehydrated and dry skin
Another natural (Austrian Alps based) skincare brand that I've been trialling recently. I've been going absolutely GaGa for their masks and bath products so decided the cleanser was also worth a try. This very moisturising cleansing milk dissolves dirt and makeup well and contains a good roster of all -natural ingredients, like chamomile, rosehip seed oil, vitamin E and glycerin. All these hydrators make it a good option for dry skinned peeps who want an effective cleanser that doesn’t leave skin feeling stripped. Also a great choice if the change of temperatures has left your skin feeling dehydrated. I removed it with a muslin cloth but you can use wet cotton pads for a gentler effect.Available here.

Another great cleansing option for dry skin (if you want to avoid the plant oils due to sensitivity) is Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. I know lots of people with sensitive and reactive skin who wouldn’t dream of using anything else, and it’s recommended by a lot of reputable dermatologists, too.

4. The cream - Bare Minerals Clay Chameleon Transforming Purifying Cleanser
Good for all skin types
I'm always intrigued by new cleansing textures so naturally wanted to try this 'clay-to-cream'. Although it's clay based, the creamy formula means it doesn’t feel tight or drying. Alongside purifying red clay the formula also contains bamboo (hydrating), plus bergamot and mandarin - the fresh scent is great for an uplifting morning cleanse. It's also a nice option to use as a second cleanse once your makeup is removed for an extra-deep clean and to make sure all that grime from the day is swept away. This is another one I would definitely leave on for a few minutes as a mini morning mask.
Available here.

5. The wash - Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser
Good for normal to oily skin
This is a lovely fuss-free, easy to use cleanser (apply to wet or dry skin and splash off with water) with a super fresh texture, a bit like a lotion-come-gel (there's no foaming). It's solid, basic and no-frills which a lot of people will like, and contains good hydrators like rosewater, glycerin and hyaluronic acid, although if you have very dry or dehydrated skin you may find it isn't hydrating enough for you. Again, you can use this one to remove eye makeup (apparently it contains the same cleansers that are found in contact lens solutions, which makes it gentle for eyes) and it's also a nice option for morning cleanses.
Available here.

If you prefer balm textures, have a look at my Cleansing Balms film here and blog here, these are all ones I still rate and use myself.
