To cleanse or not to cleanse?

So I will admit I never used to cleanse...

Now some may think that this is despicable and be shocked at this admission of mine. 
However I am sure that there are plenty of girls out there which have taken a lax approach to facial cleansing. 

FOR GOODNESS SAKE I only just realised you can purchase cleansing products for your hair .... I think that says it all.

Following this as you can see I have clearly started to include this step in my skin care routine 
hence the blog post!

Below I have inserted a photo of the current cleansers I am testing out.

I will go ahead and list them for you...

OLE HENRIKSEN - Empower Foaming  Milk Cleanser
THE BODY SHOP - Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter
ORIGINS - A Perfect World - Deep Cleanser with White Tea
KORRES - Milk Proteins - 3 in 1 Cleansing Emulsion
FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser


OLE HENRIKSEN - Empower Foaming  Milk Cleanser

Description? Boosts skin vitality and flow. With arctic cloudberry, nordic cotton and willow bark extracts.

First thoughts? This is a cleanser which has a milky, creamy consistency. I like these kinds of cleansers, my skin tends to be on the dryer side and these kinds of cleansers work  really well with my skin type. I  also love the smell of this product! you can defiantly smell a blend of berry and cotton with woody undertone.

Works? I don't think this cleanser lends well to its name, I don't personally find that this "foams" but this might be the way I am using the product with my magnitone. But! this hasn't changed my opinion I still really like this product and find that it does cleanse my skin well. 


THE BODY SHOP - Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

Description? (WEB) This cleanser is an indulgent make-up remover for the whole face. It gently and efficiently melts away make-up and impurities, leaving skin feeling clean, refreshed and pampered.

First thoughts? LOVE this. I don't think I could say one bad thing about this cleanser. I was recommended this by a friend who's sister works at The Body Shop and you know what! I am so glad I listened. 
Has a really subtle scent, and super gentle on the skin. This product is a more luxurious thicker creamy based product than the others mentioned in this post.

Works? I tend to try and use this only once a week as I find it a little heavy, not that I think this is a bad thing but I generally like to use the other cleansers as a day to day. A lot goes a long way, and my skin is super super soft after every use with my magnitone. 

A must buy!

ORIGINS - A Perfect World - Deep Cleanser with White Tea

Description? (WEB)  Foaming face wash formulated with nature's antioxidant White Tea. In a pre-emptive sweep, dirt-grabbing minerals combined with the gentle, skin-compatible cleansing action reach deep to help detoxify and free skin of harmful impurities. 

First thoughts? I love the scent of all Origin products who doesn't? They all seem to have a perfect fruity blend that simply makes you want to smother yourself in the product.. well this does exactly that.

Works? This product lathers up really well, and leaves skin feeling super soft. The only problem with this product personally is the price... compared to the Body Shop cleanser which is nearly £10.00 cheaper! I probably won't be repurchasing this in the full size.


KORRES - Milk Proteins - 3 in 1 Cleansing Emulsion

Description? 3 in 1 emulsion that cleanses, tones and removes make-up from face and eyes.

First thoughts? The name of the product completely threw me off as the product had a very light sweet scent, which I didn't expect but was glad that it did!
On first thoughts I will be honest I wasn't that impressed with this product, I wasn't sure it did very much and disregarded it. However I decided to try this out again and found that it really helped to calm my skin on days where I found I was having break outs or had general redness to my cheeks.

Works? I am definitely thinking about purchasing the full size of this product as I find it really calms my skin and is a nice break to the thicker and more foamy cleansers in my beauty stash.


FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser

Description? FAB Antioxidant booster, removes surface oils, makeup dirt and grime, and safe for sensitive skin. Described as a airy cream that gently cleanses skin.

First thoughts? This was one of the first cleansers I tried and I really liked. The consistency is nice, the scent is okay and its great with sensitive skin.

Works? As I said above I do like this product, and lent towards using this when I started out adding a cleanser to my regime. However I am starting to dislike the scent of this product.. the scent isn't particularly harsh it just smells to me like a basic shampoo(hair product) scent.
I love the consistency and I find this product lathers up the most and produces more of a foam than the others. However I am just not convinced by the scent at the moment and to be honest I am hoping to find a similar product in; lather, foam and results, but which has a scent that I would more likely gravitate to.


Thank you for reading my post,
I  hope some of you found this helpful or interesting..

Magnitone? If you are not sure what this is and would like a more in depth review/explanation of this product then head back to my Blog soon, where I will be posting a full blog post on this cleansing brush.

Do you use cleaners? If you have any suggestions from reading my blog and seeing where my niggles are then please leave me a comment with your suggestions of any cleansers you think I should test out!
