Best Cleansing Products

I don't always look forward to my nightly cleansing routine because, well, I'm lazy....but I will say that the right collection of cleansing products sure does make it a whole lot easier. It's taken me quite a few years to find my ideal cleansing routine, so I thought it would be a good time to finally share the items I've curated over the years - my absolute cleansing favourites!

This is super handy to have in your bathroom vanity, as a backup for when your regular makeup remover runs out - since it doesn't need anything but water to work! Recently, I only realized I'd run out of my fave Bioderma micellar solution at night when I went to take my makeup off. No time to run to the drugstore for more! So I ended up reaching for my Jane Iredale Magic Mitt, and found it actually worked quite well. I always wear waterproof liner though, which was a little harder to remove, but in the end it even managed to completely remove that. All I had to do was wet the mit and swipe across my face!

The only reason I wouldn't use this every day is that it takes some time to try and clean the mitt afterwards with soap and water - but again, I think that's because I was wearing that waterproof liner. The rest of my makeup - foundation, brows, and mascara came off quite easily.

You can pick one up for yourself from! And the next time you run out of your tried-and-true makeup remover, you'll thank me.

This is my all. time. favourite. makeup remover. Enough said. I have honestly been using this stuff for years now, and it really is the best. It gets all of my makeup off so easily - even my waterproof liner. And the formula is so gentle on my skin too. I love that it's a non-rinse formula too, so if I'm feeling really lazy, I don't need to rinse (although I usually still use a cleanser afterwards). If you have breakout-prone skin, I also recommend the Sebium formula - has both formulas in full and travel sizes!

I fell in love with this cleanser the second I smelled it! Fresh heavenly! Lavendar is my favourite scent, and this cleanser is enriched with lavendar essential oil. I also LOVE that this cleanser has glycolic acid in it, which has exfoliating properties. The formula is made with an optimal pH of 4.5, so it won't irritate the skin, and won't neutralize the action of the glycolic acid. You also only need a very small amount of product to really get a lather going, which is of course a plus. 

I use this cleanser on a daily basis in the evening after I've removed my makeup. I go to bed with clean skin and smelling great! The lavender scent is an added bonus when going to sleep, as lavender is also known for its calming properties.

A couple times a week, I like to use an exfoliating scrub in place of my usual cleanser. This Clinique 7-Day Scrub Cream sloughs off dead skin without being too harsh. And the creamy texture also feels so good on the skin.

Fun fact: this scrub is made of 100% vegan ingredients, is allergy tested, dermatologist developed, and free of fragrance, mineral oil, alcohol, SLS, talc, silicone, and gluten!

And voila: clean and clear skin! Now I'm curious...what's your all-time-favourite cleansing product?

Happy Styling! xo
