How do you like to cleanse your skin? The sensorial experience of your morning and evening cleanse is something that I always like to switch up with different types of products… as much as I love a good cleansing balm, I do like switching it up with something new to enliven the skin and make the whole experience fun again, plus different cleansers have different effects on the skin so I adjust to what my skin needs.
I’m sharing a few different types of cleansers that I’ve been loving recently… all with very different textures for you to experiment with… what’s your favourite type?
Elan Skincare – Wonder Face Cleanser – Melon + Bakuchiol + Cucumber
This has a cleansing oil texture and a Hazelnut Seed Oil base, but it also has a lot of other fab ingredients that give it its unique, satin texture and a beautifully rich colour. Some of the other key ingredients include Bakuchiol – a natural alternative to vitamin a and fruit and flower extracts including melon and cucumber. You can even leave this on a mask if you like and it feels hydrating and comforting on the skin.
This cleaning oil is fragrance free but has a natural scent of fresh cucumber and melon, which is gorgeous and light. If you’re a cleansing oil addict, you’ll enjoy this one!
Looking for a cleanser with a difference? This fabulous gummy facial cleanser from Olixa is unlike anything I’ve seen before! You apply this cleanser as an even layer to the skin, then create a suction effect by pressing and lifting the palms of your hands against the skin to help gently lift up makeup and grime… and it’s quite fun! It then washes off easily, becoming milky when water is applied to the face, leaving your skin soft and glowing.
One of the key ingredients in this cleanser is Kakudu Plum, which is the world’s richest natural source of vitamin C and it also contains phenolic acid to gently exfoliate the skin.
The Kora Organics Milky Mushroom Gentle Cleansing Oil catches the eye with its dual phase formula… but this cleanser is more than just a pretty package, it is packed with some fabulous ingredients too.
This dual-phase formula transforms into a milky fluid texture when shaken… really cool experience and quite satisfying! It has a pearly cleansing milk that combines with a gorgeous oil blend when shaken.
It has a nice light texture due to this mixture of ingredients, but it glides like an oil and you can massage it into the skin as you cleanse. I love that it combines the two types of cleansing: an oil cleanse that helps to balance acne-prone skin and lift dirt and impurities, as well as nourishing the skin with fatty acids and a Silver Ear Mushroom enriched milk that also moisturises the skin as it cleanses. This combination also makes this a fab product for people who may struggle with heavier cleansing oils but still want the benefits that come from an oil cleanse. You can read our full review here.
This is a fabulous stick cleanser with a balm texture (I do love a good balm cleanser). This fab product can not only be used as a simple cleanser, it also exfoliates and moisturises in one step. This is unusual in that it comes in a stick format: great for travelling and easy to apply.
The Tri-balm contains botanical oils, starflower, and oats gently cleanse to remove impurities and make-up, Pumpkin seed enzymes gently exfoliate to brighten and freshen skin and Hyaluronic acid paired with natural antioxidants moisturize and protect skin all day/night long.

Awake Organics – Sea Quartz Daily Micro polish
Do you like your cleanser that has a more gritty texture, one that’ll exfoliate physically as well as cleanse? This one is for you. The cleanser uses crystals, turmeric and brown rice to exfoliate the skin and the UK Grown Cannabis Sativa Oil content in this hydrates and softens the skin. This lush skin polisher is loaded with skin food goodies like hemp seed oil, spirulina, blue chamomile + superfine genuine crystal quartz…known for many things including being a master healer. When it’s combined with water, it turns milky and washes off easily, leaving your skin feeling soft and cleansed.
It’s also such a beautiful green colour so it’s an absolute delight to the eyes too… obsessed!
