It’s confession time. I have a problem. I can’t stick to one cleanser. Even when I find one I like (read: the lasttwo cleanser reviews I have posted) I still venture out into the big old world of untried brands. It’s bitten me on the bum before, but with this product, This Works’ Clean Skin Gentle Cleanser, I’m was torn.
Now for my skin, it’s been incredible. It has combat all my dryness and didn’t break me out. The rosehip oil in this has done wonders. It smells lovely and my boyfriend loves it (bonus points). It really is a fantastic cleanser.
When it comes to cleansers, I can find myself very picky, so I really like when I find one that ticks all my boxes.
I put the call out to Twitter to find a good cleanser for sensitive skin and Amy from Bottled Beauty recommended me this. It’s a gel formula, with a lavender/herbal like scent. I really liked it and it was almost relaxing in a way. It foams nicely but is in no way drying to the skin, nor did it break me out. I found this great to use with my Clarisonic or even just my hands. The bottle is shower friendly being easy to squeeze and a nice twist open lid. Being able to store it facing it down meant that I was able to get every last drop out! Which when you love it, you really. really want to do 😛
My skin is dry at the best of times, and with my last choice in cleanser specifically saying it was not suitable for dry and sensitive skin (my bad!), I have been on the hunt for a cleanser that’s right for me. I saw L’oreal’s Perfect Clean foaming cream cleanser sitting on the supermarket shelf and decided I would give it a go. I tend to dislike cream cleansers because they don’t foam, so for me, this was a happy medium!
Another thing I’m picky with is scents, and for quite a while, this one didn’t sit well wit me. It fell under that ‘creamy’ scent and I actually thought this was going to be a deal breaker at first. I am really glad I took a few extra weeks to write this review as I’m much more used to this scent now, although still not high on my favourites scent wise, it doesn’t bother me now.
