Here’s the next installment to my skincare products post (read the makeup removers post here): cleansers! I’m not very picky when it comes to cleansers. For the longest time, I lived off my mom’s and sister’s, even though their skin types are totally different from mine! I don’t need my cleansers to do a lot besides actually cleansing my face (to be fair, my face is fairly non-problematic) so I look for something that’s effective without making my wallet cry too much.
I tried a little sample of this a long time ago and was a bit skeptical since it’s described for oily skin – which I definitely don’t have! It worked for me anyway (no adverse effects despite it not being for my skin type at all) and I decided to get the full size. This cleanser is rather pretty, being a soft red (not pink!) with little shimmers in them. I bought it a few years ago and I’ve since moved on to bigger and better cleansers (aka Glossier Milky Jelly, which I’ll be talking about later in this post). It’s still good though, so I’m trying to use it up.
This was one of the first cleansers I tried, and I loved it. I’m sure I’ve repurchased this one once or twice, but then I realized it’s actually pretty similar to the CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser, which my sister was using and left behind before she went back to Ohio. CeraVe is loads cheaper than First Aid Beauty, and it comes with a pump which makes it so much easier to use. Both this and the Deep Cleanser with Red Clay are great as a follow up to my oil and balm cleansers, but once these are used up I’m going back to CeraVe!
My favorite daily cleanser! It made an appearance in my Current Skincare Routine post from almost a year ago, and it’s still present in my skincare today. Milky Jelly Cleanser is my everyday go-to when I don’t need anything tough. It’s super gentle on the skin, and smells faintly of rosewater. Glossier claims that it takes makeup off, but I digress – it works to remove light makeup, and anything heavier will linger.
