Whether you’re an eco-warrior aiming to reduce your water usage, you’re fed up of waking up with yesterday’s makeup still in place or you’re looking for a simpler alternative to your 11-step skincare regime, we’ve chosen our favourite cleansing products that makes the first step in your skincare routine a whole lot easier.
We’ve all been guilty at some point in our lives of crawling into bed with a face full of makeup and just not being able to summon the energy to head to the sink for a full double cleanse, serum, eye cream etc. routine. But if you’ve become accustomed to waking up with mascara on your pillow, yesterday’s lipstick on your cheek and patchy foundation covering your complexion, it’s time for a cleansing overhaul!
First things first, if your skincare routine is no longer bringing you happiness, ask yourself why? Treat this time as your little slice of peace and self-care in an otherwise hectic and demanding day. Plus don’t forget that your skincare routine doesn’t need to be a multi-step, arduous task. Keep it simple and use great products and you will see results.
Simplify your cleansing routine
If you’re on a plane, at a festival or just at home and the sink feels a million miles away, keep these products close to hand for a through cleanse without leaving the comfort of your seat/tent/bed!
Top of the list is the Micellar Cleansing Pads from Skin Matrix. These discs are supersized at 78mm, meaning you can cleanse your whole face with just one. They are also available in three different formulations; choose from Exfoliating, Hydrating or Sensitive to suit your skin type.
Whichever formulation you choose, all three work effectively to remove all traces of makeup without disrupting skin’s natural pH balance, leaving skin brighter, more radiant and thoroughly cleansed.
But the best feature of these incredible cleansing pads is that they are 100% biodegradable, made from 100% cotton and they are also cruelty-free. Plus, none of the formulations contain alcohol or fragrance.
Skin Matrix Micellar Cleansing Pads are a great way to get your micellar fix and a thorough cleanse no matter where you are.
For those of you who just can’t give up the face wipe, these brand new wipes from Image Skincare are infused with an energising and refreshing combination of superfruits, coffee, botanical extracts, aloe vera and cucumber to awaken tired and depleted skin.
The wipes remove all traces of makeup, including waterproof mascara, with these soft and gentle cloth wipes. Just don’t forget to dispose of them correctly in the bin – DON’T flush them!
There can be a tendency to over strip skin when cleansing, leaving it feeling sensitised and irritated. A cleanser that’s not heavily emulsified protects skin’s barrier function, which encourages healthy skin function and helps to protect against environmental aggressors.
Mesoestetic Hydra Milk Cleanser is a revitalising yet gentle cleanser that comforts skin whilst also removing excess oils, impurities and debris. The mild, milky cleanser helps to dissolve make up and eliminate impurities for skin that is left feeling fresh and hydrated.
Chamomile essential oil offers soothing and decongestant properties to effectively remove make up whilst also moisturising and respecting the physiological equilibrium of the skin.
This multi-tasking micellar water is gentle enough to use on sensitive areas such as the eyes and lips but effective enough to remove makeup, cleanse skin and deliver a purifying and moisturising action.
The CODAGE Micellar Water is also formulated with a plant-based protective matrix, which reinforces skin’s natural defences and helps to fight pollution.
