Cleanser Update – In Use Or Soon To Be

Cleansers perricone Md superdrug ren and lush - mi

Cleansers really are a personal choice and they can do wonders for some people and cause trouble for others. I have dry skin but I’m also prone to blemishes. I like to try new cleansers and only repurchase if I really do love them or can afford too.

Cleanser In Use

Morning – Ren ClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser £18 150 ml

This one I’ve really been enjoying as a lovely way to wake up with. It feels super lush on your face it has that clay like texture but way smoother and has a lovely slip to it. With the clay side in mind this has been a nice mattifying feel without being harsh on my dry skin. It’s aimed at blemish prone skin and I can say that it’s keeping away the big spots I still get a few but far less often. I good combo with my favourite toner The Body Shop Tea Tree one. This hasn’t swayed the blackheads away half as much as I’d like but I can feel it giving me a deeper cleanse which is why I originally used this at night but I wanted to switch it up to see if it helped mattifying my skin which it did. This is more than I would usually use but with a 1/3 extra it gives me more time to decide if it’s worth repurchasing and I will let you know when I’ve finished it.

Night – Lush Let The Good Times Roll £6.35 100g

Is it just the smell that makes me buy this over and over? Probably not but the cinnamon pop corn scent is amazing. I fall in love with this every time I open the tub. It has added exfoliation and I prefer this as a night-time as a way of getting all the oil, dirt and dust from work off my skin. It makes my skin a little red as I like to really rub this in. You only need a little pea size amount to make this work. I wet my face first and smear some in dabs on my face the wet my fingers and rub this in adding more water as I go. This way I don’t lose any down the sink when I originally made a paste first. This is the third pot I’ve bought and if I don’t like my next budget one I will likely go back to this again.

P.S If you like the Lush cleansers buy the little 100 g pot rather than the big one. They work out the same price but you will get more pots faster. Save 5 of the back pots and get a free face mask.

Cleansers – For Future Use

Perricone Md – Gentle Cleanser £35 240 ml 

It’s OK I’ve not gone crazy and spent £35 on a cleanser I picked mine up at T.K.Maxx for £12.99. I had to get it because unless it appears on their shelves again  the likely hood is I won’t be getting the chance again.

Perricone md – A mild, non-detergent cleanser that is safe and effective for sensitive skin. With Olive Polyphenols, Tocotrienols, Neuropeptides and Green Tea Extract.

Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleanser £5.99 150 ml

This on the other hand is at the other end of the scale and much more budget friendly. It’s had a few recomendation through Youtube and even comes with a muslin cloth. This will give me chance to try one as I’m a flannel girl at the moment. I’m working on the idea of trying both high end at drugstore at the same time. This is to find out if it’s worth spending more or am I better off putting money into other items.This is similar to the Lush as it is a cleanser and mild exfoliator in one.

  • ive tried the lush cleanser and i’m a bit undecided. they don’t really spread as well as i’d hope and sometimes chunks of it doesn’t really smooth onto my skin well.

    • the bit that annoyed me was the popcorn i had to remove but i think it’s much softer than other lush ones, it’s one of the reasons im put off dark angels by how rough it looks
