Cleanser Haul!

18 comments
Hey Lovelies,
Hope you're all well and having a good week so far! Sorry I haven't put up any posts in over a week. Usually I try to blog twice a week but l've been really busy and sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done that you want to. I'm sure everyone who works full time and blogs knows where I'm coming from haha. Anyway, if you read my last post you'll know that I used up quite a few cleansers over the last couple of months. Even though I really enjoyed using all the cleansers I had in my collection, I did not repurchase any of them. I'd been using hot cloth cleansers for over 2 years, and even though I still think they are amazing at cleansing your skin and removing make up, I simply got bored off them. I guess it's the beauty blogger in me that always loves trying new products haha! Well, I decided to invest in some new products I hadn't tried before, so read on to find out which cleansers I've purchased recently as well as my thoughts on them.
Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Cottonseed, 125ml, RRP £18.00 (LINK)
I love this cleanser so much it even made it into my 2013 Clarins Favourites post! The Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Cottonseed has been formulated for normal / combination skin. I only need about a pea sized amount of this product to work out a rich lather that not only removes make up and other impurities but also leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft afterwards. This product does an amazing job at removing dirt, make up and oil without drying out my skin or leaving it feeling tight. I'd even go as far as saying that this is probably one of the best cleansers I've ever used. I know at £18.00 it's more on the pricey side as far as cleansers go, but for me it's worth every single penny and if you are looking for a gentle yet effective cleanser I cannot recommend the Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Cottonseed Gentle Foaming Cleanser enough.
Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel with Marula Oil, 125ml, RRP £19.50 (LINK)
I originally wanted to get the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm but as it was out of stock, so I ended up purchasing the Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel instead. This is quite an interesting product as it has a gel like texture which turns into an oil when you massage it into your skin and then rinses off as a cleansing milk. I've found removes heavy make up and even stubborn water resistant mascaras with ease. Even though the Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel contains Marula oil and transforms into an oil when you apply it to your face, it isn't greasy and feels really light on my skin. 
Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, 125ml, RRP £21.00 (LINK)
This is a product I've been desperate to try for quite some time after hearing one of my favourite bloggers Tanya Burr rave about it, and as soon as it was in stock at my local Clinique counter I picked one up. A little goes a long way with the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm and only need a small amount of this product to remove all your make up. As you massage the balm into your skin, it turns into an oily texture which literally melts away dirt and make up. I was slighlty worried that the oily texture of this product would leave my skin feeling greasy, but I was pleasantly surprised. After cleansing with the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, my skin feels soft, moisturised and clear. Like all Clinique's products, their Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm is fragrance free. I'm really happy I've tried this product and can totally understand the hype surrounding it. When this pot runs out, I know for sure I will be heading back to Clinique to repurchase it!
Well, that's it for my cleanser haul. I am so happy with all of my purchases and would love to know what you think if you've tried any of these products so let me know in the comments below!
